It's getting ugly in Hong Kong. Protests against China's broken promise to grant full democracy are escalating in Hong Kong.

A disturbing video shows how some law enforcement officers are handling protestors. An unprovoked policeman is shown grabbing an elderly protester by the arm, pulling him toward a barrier and pepper spraying him directly in the face.

A hard-to-watch GIF of the encounter was posted on Reddit earlier today.
