Re: I doubt it was U.S. law that the app was violating

@AC. Did I mention that the protests in Hong Kong were peaceful or not? I only responded to the proposal in the article that the app was banned because it violated U.S. law. It doesn't. It probably would if it doxxed certain cops that were involved in riot or demonstration control, but having an app that points out that there is a demonstration taking place at a certain place and that police are gathering at that or another point is very legal.
