Things we have to choose from in our lives.

The Judge Took $100,000N.T. in Money for the Deceased from a Drug Dealer’s Wife, Sentenced to TEN Years

Knowing the law, and you still, BROKE it, wow, are you, STUPID or something, or, are you just, too tempted, huh???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former judge of the Hualien High Subsidiary Court, Lin was accused of receiving $100,000N.T. in offering money for the dead on his own father’s funeral, in exchange for giving her husband a not guilty verdict, the retrial of the High Courts found Lin guilty of corruption, sentenced him to ten years, and fined him $1.2 million N.T.s, stripped of his judgeship for five years, and, the money he’d received from the bribes, confiscated by the government.  The other judges criticized him for shaming the justice department, for giving the judges a bad rap.

Lin served as a judge of the Hualien High Subsidiary Courts during the 1999 to 2010 terms, he retired with the title of office manager of the Hualien County Council’s legal control offices.  There were, many debates of his behaviors during his time as a judge, other than the case involving the drug dealer, Tseng, he was also accused of allowing the man, Lee who was diagnosed with tuberculosis out on a $1.7 million N.T. bail, he’d been sentenced to thirteen years by the courts, but last year, the High Courts changed his verdict to not-guilty, the D.A. is in the process, of filing an appeal to the Highest Court on the case right now.

Lin was accused of while working as a criminal court judge during 2006, on the case involving Tseng, when the captain from the local police investigations Wang told him that Tseng’s wife was willing to pay him, hoping that the turnout of the case will be in Tseng’s favors, and, set up Tseng’s wife and Lin to meet at a karaoke in Hualien, and there was also, the secret company of Lin’s, Chen present too, the four made a pact, Lin left his business card, Chen and Tseng’s wife traded their phone numbers during the time.

During the trial, Lin advised Tseng’s wife what sort of a strategies she could use to help her husband to get a lighter sentence, and collected the evidence that was in Tseng’s favor under the tables, and told Tseng’s wife of the progressions of her husband’s case.  And Tseng’s wife had, given the wines, to Chen who was a “confidant” to Lin too, in May of 2007, Tseng’s wife gave a $100,000N.T. using the cause of his father’s death, to give to him.

By the end of the year, when Tseng, the drug dealer was being sentenced, of the charges, selling a level one controlled substances, he was given the sentence of “not guilty”, while on the charges of selling a level two controlled substances, the sentence of nine years was, maintained, the Highest Courts tossed back the not-guilty verdict of the level one controlled substance back to the district courts, and Tseng received only eight years for it.  In 2010, Tseng escaped to China, and in March of 2012, Tseng died on the run, and his wife felt displeased at how she’d already, “spent so much money”, and still, her family got torn apart, she’d, decided, to tell the courts of what had happened in sum.

Yeah uh, hello,, apparently, MONEY is still, what makes this world goes ‘round based off of this BAD example of this bad judge, he’d taken the bribes, from a drug dealer’s wife, to get him off easy, and, he’d, given the tips to the man’s wife on how to plea, how to manipulate the systems, and, he took in the bribes, for his services to help the dealer get off easy, and it wasn’t until that the dealer had died on the RUN, did his widow decide to come out…

To Make Their Quotas, the Police are Playing Devils’ Advocate

What would you do, to MAKE your quotas, huh???  Are you, willing to, make a PACT with the DEVIL?  Yep you would!!!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former station manager of the Ping-Zhen Substation of Taoyuan City Police Department, Wu had gone easy on his subordinates, the sergeant, Ding, illegally searched the residences, and corroborated with the addicted couple to plant the guns, to make the quotas of safety check before the New Year’s.  The Taoyuan District Court charged the four involved officers, Wu and three others on illegal searches, and setting the suspects free, and falsifying the records, five to six and a half years, there was another officer who’s on the run.  The verdict blamed Wu and his crew for seriously damaging human rights, that they’d, acted, with great malice.

The D.A. investigated, that the Spring Safety Review for the substation ranked toward the bottom in 2011, and, in order to up the record, Ting on January 17th, 2012, found that Liu had a gun in his possession, and, went over the district to Yangmei, and illegally searched his home with officers Lee, Lin, and Chen, but they were only able to find the illegal substances, and not the weapons.  The suspect, Liu worried that his girlfriend, Chen, who had an active arrest warrant might get arrested, he’d begged the police to let them off easy.

Lee told him, that he’d needed to make the quota for the gun checks, the suspect, Liu offered to trade the leads in exchange for not having both him and his girlfriend arrested, as the officers agreed to the “trade”, they’d not taken Liu into custody, and, allowed him to talk with his friend about the trade.  Later, Liu’s friend handed over the gun, the ammo, and, made the excuse of visiting a former classmate, Yeh, and planted the gun inside the ceiling of Yeh’s factory, then, notified the police to check.

As the “trade” was agreed upon, the police agreed to let Liu leave with his girlfriend, and, falsified the records on how they were able to find the gun, and, after the records were signed and confirmed by the station manager, Wu, the officers, Lee and Chen, they’d turned it over to the D.A.; Yeh, who was framed was charged with possession of weapons, but, during the trials, Yeh kept telling the judge he was, framed.

The D.A. felt that something wasn’t quite right, they’d reassigned the new investigators, and, found that Liu was dealing, and put on police surveillance, and, they’d filtered through the files, and, heard him tell his friend, “tell me where you’d placed it”, the man replied, “I’ll tell you later”, which became the solid evidence proving that the gun was framed.

In October of 2014, the D.A. assigned the units, and arrested Wu and three other who were involved, on illegal searches and forgery; Chen already escaped to Canada, and an active arrest warrant had been signed into effect for him.

The courts weighed in, that the four officers were law enforcement officials, and, didn’t follow the proceedings to get the guns, and abused their powers, and illegally searched, and, traded with Liu on setting him and his girlfriend free, and framed someone else, Wu, as the police station manager, didn’t not stop it, instead, he’d, agreed to it, that the whole station had, damaged the human rights of the men arrested, the authority of the police, along with the trust that people placed in the law enforcement officials.

Last September, the Examination Committee members also impeached Wu and three others, and believed that they’d planted the guns, and framed innocent civilians, and they’re, processed by the punishment committees.

Yep, this just showed, how the MORALE of the law enforcement officials had, gone down, too low!  These men, in order to make the “sales quota” they’d, used their status of power, and forced a man, to rat out his friend, and, they’d, planted evidence to make the man’s friend appeared guilty, but, justice had, prevailed in this case, because, all these officers’ bad behaviors were caught, and now, they are faced, with an even MORE severe punishment, compared to if they were civilians, doing all of these, bad things, because they WORKED (past tense???) for the L-A-W, and, they’d, knowingly, broken the laws!!!

Raped, by the Silences…

We are raped, by the silences, because, we’re, afraid to tell anybody what had, happened to us, because, if we tell our truths, the outside world will only, ostracize us more, saying, that it’s our fault, that we shouldn’t have, behaved too provocatively in front of that man, that we were, just, asking for it, therefore, we’d, kept our silences.

what we were…picture found online…查看來源圖片

Raped, by the silences, we were, because, we’re, too afraid to talk, too afraid for our lives, as well as the lives of, those we loved and cared about, and, can’t even begin to imagine the shame they will feel, if our stories, busted out into the open!

Raped, by the silences, there’s, no way this will, ever come to an end, because, those predators are still, lurking, waiting, for their chances to, attack, and even though, we only come out, during the daytime, sometimes, it feels, like nights…

Raped, by the silences, we were, we were all, victims before, but, I’d, managed to, turn myself, into a god DAMN survivor here, I will, NEVER be quieted, be silenced again!!! what we are now…

what we have the potentials of becoming…picture found online

Raped, by the silences, there’s, nothing we can do, to change the past, change what’s already been done to us (and no, we NEVER enjoyed it!!!).  Raped, by the silences, no we don’t, keep our lips sealed, because what was shameful, wasn’t US, it was, what was, done to us!

What if, the Legalities of Your Marriages, Rests on Someone Like Me?

Uh, this is, what’s, up for “grabs” in the election coming up this weekend!

What if, the legalities of your marriages, rests on someone like me, and I just happen, to be a HOMOPHOBE (not that I am or anything like that!!!), and, what IF, the rest of the majority of the population in this country, ARE just like me, haters of homosexuals?  Then, you, who’s a homosexual, would be, totally, SCREWED!!!

What if, the legalities of your marriages, rests on someone else, other than the two of you, huh?  If you were, born a certain way, you should NOT be made, to PAY for it, that is, how you were born, it wasn’t, your fault, and yet, this voting session is, penalizing those who are, DIFFERENT, with an alternative, SEXUAL orientation, so, how’s that fair, huh?

I mean, I would HATE it, if someone tells ME who I can, or can not love, or marry!  After all, it’s, MY life, my choice, and NOBODY ELSE should have a say in it.

What if, the legalities of your marriages, rests on someone else?  Is that even fair?  And no, I’m still, NOT begging all of you, to vote for or against GAY rights, I’m merely, presenting a “case” here, think about it, if it were you, how would you feel, if someone tells you, who you can or can not fall in love with, huh???

But, I’m still, voting this Saturday, and guess which way I’m voting?  FOR HUMAN rights!  That’s, how I shall, always BE voting!!!

His Wife Had Committed Suicide, Because the Man He Was Seeing Pressured Her to Divorce Her Husband

The results, of the adultery with another man she met from work, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man Lee started dating a waitress at a food shop for over a year then broke up with her, after he’d learned that Cheng was already married, he’d forced her to divorce, and, Cheng became suicidal, took a lot of pills to kill herself, and was rushed to the hospital.  As Cheng’s husband learned that his wife’s suicide attempt was caused by another man, he’d sued Lee for obstruction of family, and the Kaohsiung District Court found Lee guilty of adultery, sentenced him to five months in prison, and he can pay $150,000N.T. to get out of serving the time, and he can still appeal the case.

The verdict pointed out, that Lee (age 40) who works as a voluntary traffic officer, in 2014, met up with Cheng, the waitress, Cheng had kept her marital status a secret and dated him for over a year; after they broke up, Lee learned that Cheng was already married from the other waitresses who worked in the shop, in 2016, he’d invited Cheng to a motel, to have sex with her three times, and asked her to divorce, or that he will show their affair to the open, tell others, Cheng was suspected to not being able to handle the pressures, she’d attempted suicide by swallowing the pills on the early morning hours of August 23rd of last year, and as she was rushed to the hospital, her affair busted out.

As Lee was brought in for questioning, he’d stated, that Cheng had lied about her marital status and gone out on dates with him, that after the first breakup, they’d not contacted each other for over a year, during which time, her coworker told him she was already married, and later, Cheng told him she will take the responsibilities, and so, he’d gone to a motel and had sex with her again.

Cheng also admitted to going three times to the motels to have sex with Lee, the judge believed, that Lee showed a total lack of respect of Cheng’s marriage to her husband, obstructed her family life, and gave Cheng a ton of pressures, in the trials, Lee plead guilty, but didn’t reach a settlement agreement with Cheng’s husband, and found him guilty of three charges of adultery, with two months per count, a combined sentence of five months, and he will be able to pay $150,000N.T. to get out of serving time in jail, the case can still be appealed.

And, because this man felt uneven, that, was why he’d tried to make the woman divorce her husband, and the woman here, was still NO victim, because she’s the one who’d decided to have an affair with him, it’s just, that she’d attempted suicide, which probably makes her seem like the victim of this case, but she really isn’t, because if she hadn’t had the affair, then, everything that followed the events, would’ve, NEVER have happened!

Bowie Tseng Witnessed Life & Death Firsthand, “Leaving is What He Wanted to Do the Most”

The interviews with those considering euthanasia, whose been in ailing health conditions, from the Entertainment Sections, translated…

Bowie Tseng in Basel, Switzerland, witnessed the 104-year-old Australian biologist, Goodall, ending his own life by euthanasia, in the final three days of his life, she’d stayed with him, ate with him, held conversations, in that final moment, she was, filled with ambiguity inside, “in just one hour, he will be gone, and I’d messed up the time he should be spending with him family, because of work, until he’d finally asked those around him, ‘what are we waiting for?’, the employees of the clinic told him, ‘there are still forms we need to fill out’, he’d sighed, ‘there are always forms to be filled out’, at that moment, I’d, let go, I shouldn’t use my own sorrows, to interpret him leaving the world happy, that’s what he wanted to do the most, as a bystander, we should, give him our blessings.”

獨家/親眼目睹百歲生態學家安樂死 曾寶儀:巨大震撼!photo fo Bowie Tseng interviewing the elderly man in Switzerland, from UDN.com…

Bowie Tseng took the documentary filming, in the past few months, she’d trekked to Great Britain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Ireland, to interview those who’d lost their loved ones by euthanasia, and in February, she’d also, interviewed the activist for euthanasia in Taiwan, Dar-Jen Fu, “he’s weak, needed morphine to stay alive, in the interview sessions, he was still full of responsibilities, claimed the purpose of his wanting his own death.” And, before she set foot to go to Switzerland, she’d thought of a million questions to ask Goodall, the biggest shock for her, “I’d never interviewed anybody who’d determined her/his own date of death, how do I go about approaching him, how do I ask my question, to not be offensive toward him, how do I, say goodbye.”

Bowie Tseng said, “He’s older than I imagined him to be, I’d held onto the oldest hands I’d ever shaken, with the years on them, wrinkles, spots, and because of muscular atrophy, the joints were very apparent, but he was still very strong. I’d gone with him and his family to the botanic gardens for a stroll, he’d petted the plants along the way, I’d asked him if he was saying goodbye to them all, and he’d asked me, ‘why would I?’, at that very moment, I’d found, all the questions I’d wanted to ask him to lose meaning, because he doesn’t care anymore.”

There’d been war between the pro and anti euthanasia groups, Bowie interviewed a British elderly woman, who was born with severe handicap, and in the entire interview, she’d needed the respirator connect to her, and every fifteen minutes, the nurse had needed to help get the phlegm out of her lungs, but because of her optimism toward life, and her two marriages, despite how bad her conditions for staying alive was, she’d spoken up against euthanasia, and her speech had helped altered British law, and, gotten the parliament to vote against euthanasia. And BBC filmed the life of “Simon”, the businessman who had ALS, who’d not progressed to the point when euthanasia should be a consideration for him, he was accompanied by his own wife, to have it, as the footages come out into the open, it’d shaken up the entire world. Bowie Tseng said, “I’d interviewed his wife this time, and she’d told me she was regrettable for doing this, she believed, that death is not the business of the individual, although you may be ill, but you still don’t have the rights, to take away the time your family gets to spend with you.”

something used, to show that you don’t want to be resuscitated, photo from online…

After this experience, Bowie Tseng said, “I will work hard, to cherish my life every day, every gathering with friends, every meal, I will work hard, to make all of this meaningful.”

And so, because this woman was personally interacting with these individuals who are in the process of getting euthanized, it’d impacted her, on a personal level, and, she’d bore witness to how bad someone was living, and yet, still was against euthanasia, this is probably going to be, the most memorable experience of interview that this woman will ever have in her entire life.

Only the Maternity Leave Bonuses? Helping Women to Enjoy Becoming Mothers

Why the whole environment doesn’t add to women’s wanting to have children, causing the aging population, the declines in birthrate to continue, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Legislative Branch upped the bonuses of women having children, and although all three of my children are all, over four years of age, I’m still very happy, toward the signing of this law. After all, this was, the most direct, most simple method. But, there are a lot of highly-educated, high income friends who’d still, refused to have children, and all these working moms told me, that it’s simply, too tiresome, to have to work, and look after their own young.

I was born in the eighties, and, a lot of my friends and families had their young after age thirty, they’d lacked that strength compared to the people in their twenties, and they’re at the stage of their lives they needed to, work hard to get ahead in their jobs, it would be, even more difficult, to look after their families. I’d consoled with them, to stop working, and enjoy being a full-time mother, but they’re not, taken with the idea.

Surely, the birthrate had been, dropping year after year, and the divorce rates, higher and higher, our generation has that sense of emergency toward marriage. I’d heard many who’d experienced it, telling me, that women need to be economically independent, not wanting to let go of their jobs, with marriages, untrustworthy, who has the mind, to have, and raise children? But, the duties of childrearing are mostly on the women’s shoulders in Taiwan, and this, won’t be resolved, with a couple of thousand dollars worth of bonuses given by the government.

One of the root causes of decline in birthrate is the economy, secondly, it’s the problems of the society. If the families are stabilized, if men are willing to chip in to help with raising the children too, then, women would surely, enjoy being mothers.

And so, this showed how it would be, unwise, for women to settle down to have children, and how this society doesn’t support the ideas of we women having children, after all, we are the ones, raising our own young, while you men just comes home after a long and hard days of work (NEWSFLASH, you MORONS, we women work our nine to fives outside the home, and we come home, to continue the job for 24/7!!!), and, this problem still won’t be resolved, by the extra bonuses that the government pays us women, for having more children, and what are we, NUTS? Why would we want to start our families, if we can excel in our jobs, after all, a job that pays well, gives us that sense of security, and, none of us would be happy, not contributing to this society here!
