On the 2nd, a terrorist murder occurred in Hong Kong’s Diamond Hill Plaza Hollywood. Stabbed two women, resulting in their deaths. The incident sparked a lot of topics, and the discussions among netizens mainly focused on three points.
Since the incident took place in broad daylight and in a busy shopping mall, many witnesses uploaded videos and photos of the murder process to the Internet, sparking heated discussions. Many citizens felt chilled, shocked, and disturbed after watching the film. They did not expect such a brutal scene to happen in public.
The current known situation is that the 39-year-old murderer entered Plaza Hollywood alone at 5 pm on the 2nd, and went to a shop to buy a sharp knife. Then he approached two young women who were shopping on the third floor of the shopping mall from behind, and attacked one of the short-haired women almost crazily, stabbing more than 30 knives in a row. During this period, her companion, the long-haired woman, tried unsuccessfully to rescue her, and finally became the target of the assailant’s attack, and her neck was cut to death. The incident took about two minutes.
The police said that at 5:15, a number of citizens reported that there was an attack on the third floor of Plaza Hollywood. The police arrived at the scene 4 minutes later, and quickly subdued and arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene. There was also a blood-stained knife about 12 inches long, and the police officers subdued the assailant immediately. The two wounded, aged 22 and 26, were sent to the United Hospital for emergency treatment, but were certified dead at 6:06 and 6:47.
The police also stated that after preliminary investigations and CCTV inspections, there is currently no evidence that the two deceased were acquainted with the assailant. The assailant is a 39-year-old local man who is unemployed and lives with his family. He has a mental illness record and needs regular follow-up visits. The case will be followed up by Team 1 of the Regional Crime Unit, Kowloon East.
The incident sparked a lot of topics, among which three were the focus of attention of netizens. First of all, it is preliminarily judged that this is a random homicide case. The perpetrators purchased the murder weapon and committed random murders in the shopping mall, rather than premeditated murders.
Some citizens expressed that seeing the video at the scene reminded them of the plot of the movie “Crazy Guy”, and hoped that the government would properly place such mentally ill patients so that they would no longer cause social panic.

Third, many netizens believe that Hong Kong is now “government and chaos”, and there are swords and swords every day. Chief Executive Lee Kar-chao and Secretary for Security Tang Ping-keung owe the people of Hong Kong an explanation. Some netizens also wanted to ask Director Deng, is this a “lone wolf terrorist attack”[Note 1]?

Although the incident did not involve any bloodshed, the then Chief Executive Carrie Lam led a group of government officials to hold a press conference at 4 am to severely condemn the demonstrators. . Netizens ridiculed, this is really a terrorist attack, will Lee Ka-chao meet reporters in the early morning?
