Leung Kin-fai, a law-abiding man with a legitimate job, stabbed a male police officer in the back with a knife outside the Sogo Department Store (SOGO) in Causeway Bay on the night of July 1st last year, and then stabbed himself in the chest to die.
The coroner's inquest on the incident earlier, his family and colleagues all said that Leung was a quiet person and seldom talked about politics. The items he left behind showed that he cared about current affairs and left some words against the police in a notebook .
Psychologists believe that Leung tends to be perfectionist and idealistic. Coupled with social events and the epidemic, it is difficult for him to vent his negative emotions, which may lead him to extreme behavior.

About an hour after the jurors retired, they ruled that the deceased Liang Jianhui (50 years old) stabbed himself in the left chest with a knife at 10:05 p.m. Died of chest stab wounds.

Psychologists believe that Liang's negative emotions cannot be vented
Based on the analysis of these data, police clinical psychologist He Yingsi believes that Liang has a tendency to be perfectionist, idealistic, and has high moral values, but he has no obvious mental or mental illness.
She also believes that Liang has long been dissatisfied with the government. Due to the impact of the epidemic and social movements in recent years, the situation has intensified. The degree may lead to extreme behavior.
Stabbing and self-destructive behaviors are extreme expressions
Zhang Chuanyi, vice president of the Hong Kong Psychological Society, believes that there is a clear gap between Liang's educational background and career progress, and he may feel that his talents are underappreciated, and then project this idea on social events.
Liang did not act impulsively. His attack on the police was obviously symbolic, and then he stabbed himself twice with the same knife, which was a more extreme expression, showing his indignation and frustration.
