Hong Kong police seen transporting “rubber baton” barrels

Hong Kong police have been videotaped and photographer transporting what look like rubber bullets to Hong Kong Government Headquarters.

A video upload about an hour ago to Facebook shows the police carrying flags, shields and barrels that in the description are identified as #8MM Rubber Baton Multi.  

 

 

A tweet from SCMP Mojo shows the barrel’s label more clearly.

Adescription of the 37mm Ruber Baton Multi from weapon retailer Atlantic Tactical is below.

The 37 mm Multiple Rubber Baton is a 8 in. casing that contains five rubber projectiles and utilizes black powder as the propellant. It is most widely used as a crowd management tool by Law Enforcement and Corrections. As a pain compliance round for crowd control, it is most suitable at medium to extended ranges of fire, approximately 40 -75 feet. It is ideal for correctional facilities where multiple impacts from greater stand-off distances may be desired for countering yard distances.

 Hong Kong police looked to be transporting 38mm rounds. We’re not sure what this means but stay safe out there, kids.
