Well the Hong Kong riots end with a blood bath? Well the movement spill to the mainland? Will the USA intervene ?

Last time America got involved with an issue in an Asian country that didn't affect them, the Vietnam war happened.

1) Not unless the HK protesters get more violent or damage the HK further, as this would give justification to China to use force. Alternatively, China would use force if HK tried to claim independence. But who knows.
2) Unlikely, mainland Chinese while not fully happy with the movement don't want to see it burn unless they totally make the population angry, it more a case of why HKers don't want to be a part of the mainland...
3) Military wise unlikely, economically wise most likely but the USA is already in economical warfare with China.

Maybe, the Tienanmen Square riots in Beijing several decades ago ended up that way. And reports are that the Muslim riots in Xinjiang Provence have been bloody.
I doubt very much that the riots will spill onto the mainland. Frankly many if not most Chinese are pleased with their government and their new economic status in the world. And they see democracy as anarchy and an impediment to economic progress since China is catching up to the US.
HK is distinctly unique and different from the Chinese mainland. It spent centuries as a British colony, China did not. Hong Kong spent decades as a democracy after the Brits pulled out. China did not.
If you went to HK today, you'd swear that you were in a large shopping mall in the United States. A China town in the US to be sure, but the US nonetheless.
Although mainland China has become very westernized, it's not that westernized. So, no, the riots will not spread into the mainland.
Finally, no the US will not intervene. There would be nothing to gain and everything to lose by starting a war with Beijing.

I doubt that the USA would intervene. I mean the reality is that China is going to play this out carefully, but what the protestors want is sovereignty and that's not going to happen. If they interfere too much, they're going to force China's hand and get the opposite of what they've been looking to achieve.
The extradition treaty is not only reasonable, but necessary. If any other country had a state that refused to extradite murderers, that would be very quickly fixed. As many faults as China may have, this one may be in being too lenient.

why isn't the UK involved? it was their treaty with China that allowed Hong Kong to remain capitalist. How'd the U.S. get in the middle of this?

The king of China can't afford to let it seep to the mainland and would rather kill a few innocent civilians and stomp-it-DEAD ......................
