Officers who fell, AT the face, of temptation, and temptation took the form of??? M-O-N-E-Y this time, I mean, who CAN, say no to that, right??? On crime and punishment here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The Zhongshan Substation of the Taipei City Police Department’s getting the pay-off from the bar-brothel continually, the former station manger, Lin, Liu, Yang, and a total of fourteen members of the forces, were charged on corruption; the Taipei District Court read its decisions yesterday, the three former station managers and one officer received the “not guilty” verdicts, while ten patrol officers were found guilty, of them, six were given the jail sentences of over ten years, the heaviest punishment was sixteen years of prison, this can be appealed.
Of the officers found guilty, Hou received $1.88 million N.T.s, sentenced to sixteen years; Wu received $365,000N.T. receiving fourteen years; Ji with $270,000N.T. sentenced to fourteen years, Ma’s $580,000N.T. got him thirteen years; Chuang’s $520,000N.T., twelve years and a half, Chen received $40,000N.T., he’d received the severe sentence of ten years ten months, Yen got eight years for taking $225,000N.T.s, while the rest of the officers who were involved were fined, and suspended from their police officer posts for five to six years total.
While for the officers who’d, pleaded guilty, and turned in the money they received, the ones who’d complied with the investigations, all received lighter punishments, of them, Tseng took $155,000N.T., Yang got $620,000N.T., Gao received $630,000N.T.s, they received an average of two years of prison, suspension from their police officers’ statuses for four years and given five years of probation.
The three former station managers, and the officer, Huang were all found, not guilty. The D.A.’s original indictment stated, that they received an anonymous call from “Wu”, whistleblowing the police substation’s taking in the bribes from the bars, as Lin received the reports, he’d, shown excessive concerns toward the bars, and was suspected of taking the money from the bars, but, the judge believed, that because the courts couldn’t positively identify the whistleblower, “Wu”, that the courts can’t decide, based off of situation solely, whether or not Lin was involved; Yang, Liu, and Huang were found to have been involved in the case, but, the reports of their involvements were, flawed, and so, they all received not-guilty verdicts.
The owners of the bar, Wu, Hu, Huang, Yang, Lee, and Lee were bribing the police stations, they received the sentences of anywhere between seven months to two years, and received two to five years of probation; the verdict found, that Wu took the total amounts of pimping out the women a total of over $47,000,000N.T.s, that Hu had made over $24,000,000 N.T.s, Huang made over $22,000,000 N.T.s, all of the money they’d made illegally, were confiscated by the government now.
And so, this still just showed, how when something seemed like an opportunity presented itself to you, it’s usually not, because these men got enticed by the money, they took the bribes, and, they ended up found guilty, and because they were police officers, their punishments are naturally, heavier, because they are, the officers of the LAW themselves, and they’d, broken the laws, and naturally, they deserve an even HARSHER sentence, compared to if an ordinary citizen had, committed this sort of a crime!
