Paying a Price for Helping Out…

Taking a Man in a Wheelchair to Cross the Tracks, the Station Operator Was Reprimanded

Here is where the HELPING BACKFIRED, and, after this “incident”, W-H-O, in her/his right state of mind would WANT to offer assistance???  Uh, that’d be N-O-B-O-D-Y!!!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

There was the handicapped passenger getting hurt by the trains at Bai-Fu station in Keelung two nights ago, the Taiwan Rail Stations investigated what had happened exactly, believed that the station operator, Chou was negligent, she’d gotten a reprimand; the Keelung City Government also had mechanics fix up the escalators.

The station manager at Chi-Du, Hsu said, that as the station operator, Chou took the father-daughter pair to cross the handicapped passageways, she should’ve used the intercom to make sure that there was NO train passing through.  Even though Chou had the walkie talkie with her, she didn’t use it, causing the Dzi-Chang Train to not see them until it was too close, causing the passenger, Chang, to get SUCKED underneath the trains.

The daughter of the passenger, Chang said, that two days ago was the second time they’d crossed the older handicapped passageways, that last month, the elevator had broken too, and they were led by a station operator, and back then, the operator DID use the walkie talkie to make sure that there was NO trains coming through.  Even though Chou had her walkie talkie, but she didn’t use it, until the Dzi-Chang Train came too close, causing the passenger, Chang, to get pulled under the wheels.

The daughter stated, she’d gone on the trains often, and she’d found that the elevators at Bai-Fu station are often under maintenance, which makes it hard for the handicapped passengers to exit, that, was why they’d risk crossing the tracks, hoping that the stations can get that improved.

And so, another C-A-S-E of how helping out BITES, the station operator WAS kind to take the father-daughter pair to cross, and, the operator was negligent in that s/he forgot to use the walkie talkie to make sure that there was NO trains coming, but, the station is at the most fault, for NOT fixing up the elevators.

It PAYS to be Kind

Does it, really??? Of course it D-O-E-S, because these days, you’d get CHARGED, in the COURT of law, for helping someone out, now, with that said, by a show of hands (yeah right!!!), how many of you are still willing, to help someone out? Anybody? Anybody? Yeah, didn’t think so.

It PAYS to be kind, because you do NOT know that the person you took in, from the side of the road, was actually, a PSYCHO killer, or, how ’bout that case where that lifeguard was FIRED, for stepping OUT of his zone, to cater to someone who WAS drowning in the area over (the areas that he was NOT responsible for), and yeah, so what IF that guy got re-hired again?

And, there are a TON of cases like these out there, and, this, is how the world looks (still quite GRIM!!!), from THE Information Desk, and I still RUN everything here, and that, is T-H-A-T, and whatever the HECK I say still G-O-E-S, and, IF you want to agree, or disagree, feel FREE to say so, I’m still just, merely, VOICING MY opinion here, so, feel free, to CRUCIFY me, or not!!!

An Attorney Who Asked Someone to Move His Car Because It Was Blocking People’s Paths Got Beaten and KICKED Down

Altruism, well, it still B-I-T-E-S, doesn’t it???  Of course it D-O-E-S, and this man only TRIED to get someone to MOVE his car, because it was blocking everybody else too, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

An attorney, Hsieh, yesterday morning when he’d gone out to get breakfast, because there was a car blocking the street, causing a traffic jam, he went up to the driver, and told him to move, instead, he was beaten onto the ground TWICE by the driver.  And, the footage was captured by an onlooker, and was posted online, it had gotten the online community raging too.

The footage of Hsieh, the attorney, getting beaten down had gotten everybody angered, someone called him “Mr. Justice”, and others said that it was the character of the lawyer, and nicked named him “Brother Justice”.  Hsieh, the lawyer said, that he was “shocked!”, that he normally defended others in court, unknowing, that yesterday, he’d become a plaintiff.  He’d also felt bad for his wife who worried about him, and that he’d told the press that the next time he saw an injustice happen, he will think twice before he acted.

The attorney stated, that yesterday at around ten in the morn, he’d gone to a namely breakfast shop in his neighborhood to buy breakfast, and he saw how a black sedan managed to block the street entrance, and that there were a LOT of the passersby who got trapped by the car, there were two other handicapped individuals on their four-wheel motorcycles having trouble passing the street, and, a passerby, a middle-aged man also tapped on the car window, to ask the driver to move.

Hsieh pointed out, that the driver, Kao, didn’t move his car right away, instead, he’d came outside, with a sour look on his face, got into an argument with the man who tapped on his window, he couldn’t stand it anymore, and told the man, “You’re the one who’s blocking EVERYBODY else, and you don’t move, instead, you create trouble for the rest of us?”, five minutes later, Kao, the driver had someone with him, and hit the lawyer’s head, and kicked him onto the ground, the lawyer lost his glasses.

After Hsieh had fallen to the ground, he was kicked several more times by the men, and bystanders started screaming, “RUN!”; after Kao and the other man was pulled off of Hsieh, Hsieh called the police.

Hsieh claimed that seeing him dial the police, the man turned back around, and KICKED him down to the ground again, said, “You want to call the cops?  I’ll BEAT you to death!”, later, they were pulled apart by bystanders.  Immediately afterwards, Hsieh went to the hospital, and had a damage assessment report done on himself, and pressed charges, the doctor diagnosed him as having head trauma, scalp bleeding, along with contusions on his limbs.

The police investigated, that Kao and Yang in their twenties, yesterday was displeased at how Hsieh, the attorney tried to set him straight, after they’d moved the car, they’d gone to the breakfast shop, and started beating him, early evening yesterday, they were called into the police station to get their statements, Kao claimed that Hsieh was the one who started the fight first, and stated that he will press charges.  The police, after the interrogations, booked Kao, and Yang.

The attorney, Hsieh, was from a family of attorneys, his wife works as an attorney too, her uncle, Chang, was a D.A., ten years ago, he’d resided over a case of drug dealing, and, had once been shot by the drug dealers for twelve times, and got wounded, yesterday, her husband was beaten, it’d made her fear.  Even though, she was pound of him, getting dubbed with the title, “Mr. Justice”, she’d still reminded him, to watch out for his own safety.

And so, altruism is what got this man beaten up, and he was only telling those SCUMS that they should NOT be blocking the streets too, and was beaten up, and now, those two loser who beaten him up will get S-U-E-D!!!  Altruism…………still B-I-T-E-S, and this time, it gained the man several STITCHES to boot too.

Good Samaritans, Paying for Rescues Gone Wrong

By Ed Flanagan, Producer, NBC.com…

BEIJING – Two teenage boys who attempted to rescue their friends from drowning in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan have each agreed to pay 50,000 yuan ($8,150) for failing to pull them from the lake.

Although police did not charge them with a crime, Wu Bo and Liu Hai, both 18, agreed to pay the family of one of the victims in a settlement that is not uncommon in China, where there are no national “Good Samaritan” laws protecting people from criminal liability if they help someone in danger.

Li Qing and Chen Min, both 17, were holding hands and walking along the edge of Lotus Lake in Dazhou City on Sunday when one of the girls stumbled and slipped into the deep waters, pulling her friend in with her, Chinese media reported.

Wu, who was in the water when he heard the splash, immediately swam over and grabbed one of the girls’ hands but she slipped from his grasp and quickly sank under the surface.

Liu, who was in the bathroom, ran out to help when he heard a scream. He dove into the lake but couldn’t find the girls in the murky water.

Devastated over the drowning of their friends and facing societal pressure to pay some form of compensation, the teens agreed to the settlement just hours after the incident, the Chengdu Business Daily newspaper reported.

The case underscores continuing societal concerns in China over assisting people in medical emergencies or accidents. Without legal protections in place, many are reluctant to rush to the rescue for fear of being pressured into paying a settlement to the victim or the victim’s family.

In recent years there has been a string of high profile incidents in which bystanders openly ignored victims of accidents. In one gruesome case in 2011, a two-year-old baby in Foshan, Guangdong Province, was run over by a car and then left to die as passersby ignored the crushed toddler.

Since then there have been calls for a national “Good Samaritan” law to be passed in China, but so far only a few cities on the mainland have pushed ahead with such legislation.

Police are still investigating the incident at the lake in Dazhou, and a lawyer who assisted the two teens told NBC News that the compensation has not yet been paid.

NBC News’ Dalin Liu contributed to this report.

This, is the PRICE you pay, for TRYING to save someone’s life, when the person’s life wasn’t saved, you’d get BLAMED, I mean, so, why NOT just let THEM all drown in the first place?  I mean, that way, at LEAST you would NOT be charged, this, is just ONE MORE of the cases of H-O-W the public IS preventing altruistic behaviors, because the rescuers are being PUNISHED, because they COULD NOT save the person in the end…and, this makes it even MORE difficult, for someone to WANT to save someone ELSE, in a case of emergency, because IF you failed to save the person, then, you would be CHARGED with the victims’ “wrongful DEATH” too, so, why would anybody, under these circumstances, even TRY to save someone else?  Exactly!!!

The Price For Saving Someone’s Life: $2,600U.S.D.

This, was what the courts said the lifeguard at the beach had to pay, for leaving HIS specified area, to rescue a 17-year-old who was drowning.

The $2,600 comes from the ambulance ride for the 17-year-old to the hospital, his hospitalization, the 15-mile ride on the ambulance for both the lifeguard and the 17-year-old comes to $1,907, the fees that the emergency room charged cost $449, the doctor’s bill was $227, which totaled to $2,600.

And, this man, out of HIS own good heart, saving the 17-year-old from dying in the tides, and this, was he was CHARGED, where the HECK is the justice in that?  He should get a medal of honor or something for saving the guy’s life, but, instead, he was blamed for leaving HIS section, and was charged ALL the fees for the youth’s hospitalizations, but, thankfully, he didn’t have to pay for it himself, there were still good Samaritans who helped raised the money for him, so, there is still a small SPECK of hope in this BAD world that we live in.

And now, this would be an example, for those of you who wanted to help out, because you not only probably won’t get a thank you, or a raise even, you’d get SUED and FINED, and that, is how cold the world’s gotten these days, despite it’s still the S-U-M-M-E-R season.
