A Hong Kong Protester Turns to Violence

This excerpt from "Battle for Hong Kong" follows a protester, "Li," who says he once used peaceful methods -- but has now turned to violence. He's one of five young protesters FRONTLINE follows in the film, which goes inside the massive and unprecedented pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong that was sparked last year by a controversial extradition bill - and met with force by the police.
