About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does. As a international human rights and criminal lawyer and trial skills teacher around the world, its his most important tool. As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally. As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

In Hong Kong, Violence Begets Violence.

Protests have continued by tens of thousands in the streets of Hong Kong. It started out as a protest that would have allowed for the extradition of suspects to Beijing to stand trial. Protesters have argued that this has happened before and when they go to the mainland, the Chinese government drops them into a black bag and they disappear. Actually, these fears may be well founded. However, the underlying concern of protestors is the continued reach by President Xi and the Chinese government in Hong Kong. I predict this won’t end well for Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam.

Anti protestor protesters broke into violence today and the men in white attacked the pro democracy factions, typically seen in black with yellow or orange hard hats. However, , these recent attacks to seem to have only driven more protesters into the streets.

I appear on I24 International News to discuss. Hope you can catch it.
