Set Up a Porn Site, Selling the Sexually Illicit Videos of the Sports Figures, the Man Was Indicted

This is happening still because???  Oh yeah, the BASIC principles of, ECONOMICS: Supply AND demand, hello, hello, hello???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Taiwanese Professional Basketball League’s P+ Taishin Dreamers star, Tang three years ago had sexually illicit footages of himself self taken and they got out, the Taoyuan D.A.’s Offices found, that Yu was responsible for setting up the porn sites, and selling the photos of Tang, adult males, and underage males’ footages of masturbation or them flashing their penises, there were over 2,500 films that were found, yesterday, Yu was indicted on obstruction of secrets, and his accomplice was charged in another case.  As for if there were other ball players who were victimized, the D.A.’s office hadn’t made a statement yet.

Based off of understanding, after the case was found, because there were naked men on the site, and there were the words of ballplayers aside from Tang who were victimized, but it was difficult to confirm the identities of, the D.A. currently only verified Tang and two other males, as for whether or not they were both sports figures, the D.A. wouldn’t say, and currently, there were only TWO men, including Tang who pressed charges, the other man, although was willing to testify in court, didn’t want to press charges.

The D.A. investigated and found, that Yu (age 35) started running the “specsaddicted” website back in June of 2019, and “tumblrland”, and other porn sites, from unknown sources, he’d gotten the footages of underage and adult males including Tang’s, stored it in the hard drives on Cloud, and spread the footages to the porn sites all around, and sold them off the “shelves”.

Yu and his accomplice, Wang started in June of last year, set up the sites, S, T, while Wang was responsible in getting the nude photo, and footages of the victims, masturbating, first, he’d, streamed the footages onto T website, and, put the footages up for the voyeurs, saved them on Cloud, and spread them out on porn sites, for sale.

The D.A. found, that Yu worked as the customer service rep for both sites, allowing the consumers to charge from their international credit cards, while the earnings in foreign currencies gets directly deposited into his foreign currency account, and he’d earned at least 330,000 Singapore dollars, over $7.06 million N.T.s, with Wang and Yu splitting the earnings amongst themselves.

Yu admitted to what he’d done, and his statements matched up with Wang’s,, and with the accusations, testimonies of the three victims including Wang, plus the evidence of the photos from the porn sites, as well as the cash flow, they were charged with secretly filming others in the sexually illicit manners, as well as obstruction to privacy.

And so, this still happened because???  Oh yeah, the MOST basic principle in ECONOMICS: supply AND demand, think about it, if there are NO markets for these SEXUAL shits to get sold on, meaning that nobody’s looking for porn online, nobody gets turned on by seeing losers or bitches AND whores in their, “wholesomes”, would this shit be happening?  HECK no, and so, this is still???  Oh yeah, an ABUSER/ENABLER interaction style that had happened here!

The Dealers are Getting Antsy, the Drug-Off-the-Campuses Program on Alert

Drugs are, infiltrating the campuses here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Last year, the Keelung District Court sentenced three dealers to nineteen to twenty-five years for selling controlled substances, and murder, and it’d, shocked the society; the police found, that as the verdict came out, there’s a sharp decline of the drugs with the same substances out in the society, that the verdict did something to stop the spread of the drugs.  But as winter vacation started, the school is no longer in session, and, the risks of the younger generations being in contact with controlled substances increased greatly again.

The statistics by the Kaohsiung D.A.’s Office found, that twenty-seven had died of substance abuse in December of 2019, the highest of a single month; of the period of October, 2019 to October, 2020, there were 123 who’d overdosed on PMMA, most were teenagers, the average is 27.5.

The drug, PMMA is a low-cost, highly addictive, highly harmful stimulant, slow to have an effect on the systems, the users normally don’t feel a thing, and would down one pack after the next, and the next and the next, until the abuser dies, and doesn’t even know WHAT killed her/him.

In the past, the dealers usually get charged with possession and selling the substances, last December, the justice of the Keelung District Court, Liu, for the very first time, sentenced the dealer, and three other accomplices on homicide, murder, a maximum of twenty-five years.

like, this???

The justice, Liu believed, that the adolescent Lin died from consuming the drugs, that the man nicknamed “Bumblebee” was thrilled and gave the drugs back to the suspect, the suspects didn’t stop selling the substances, which caused two other people to die, that there’s the intent to murder.

The justice, Liu believed, that the children aren’t to blame for the drug use, that it’s on the individual who’d, enticed the children to use, that if she’d not handed down a harsh sentence, she couldn’t stop the drug dealers.

The head of the district attorney’s office of Kaohsiung, Tu said, that some of the youths started abusing, and would find the dealers downstream to feed to one’s own addictions, and sell the extra, and it would expand, like a Ponzi scam; reminded that parents should keep a close eye on the children, hanging out with their peers, if there’s the sudden hike in spending, or that there’s the burnt plastic smell on the children, maybe, they’d abused ketamine, that the parents needed to step in right away, to put an end to the bad behaviors.

He said, that the age of drug abuse is lowered, that the dealers had infiltrated the campus, but are hard to catch; the police last year changed the system of report, and there were an influx of information on the dealers on campuses, and, the police sent the sweeps for the dealers on the campus, and, it’d shown some good results.

And because these TEENAGERS’ brains aren’t fully developed, they LACKED the abilities to judge, and, the holidays are here, meaning, that the schools won’t be “babysitting” them, and the parents are working during the children’s winter vacations, and that, is when things tend to get, haywire, and, the way to stop these possible cases of drug dealing and drug abusing, is by butting into your children’s lives, and yeah, they may hate you for being nags, but heck, it’s better than them getting caught dealing drugs, or worse, ending up DEAD from overdosing.

The Hatred that Got Sparked Up as MERS-CoV Outbreaks Continued

Observations, how the government here, had, managed to, manipulated the people, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

As MERS-CoV broke the boundaries of our nation, the hospitals lost control, the armed services in trial, and yet, we’d only come to know the fact, as the media press told us.  What’s even odder was, the party in power assigned Yang to the posts; but what we actually cared about is: did the commanding centers find that hole in the systems?  Dual-standards of quarantines, to affecting the sides to stand against each other, it’s NOT helping the situation, and I hope, that the president, Tsai and her officials, can stop deferring our attention.

The pilot’s contraction of MERS-CoV, the local cases started back up, the, commanding centers’ covering up the information, not making it public knowledge, the city government of Taipei, as well as the city council’s helping ourselves, the command centers threatened to sue, but, the misbehaving pilot that ran around the city, his tracks were discovered, and it’d forced the government to pay more attention.  While the hospital where the physician had contracted the virus, is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Welfare and Sanitations, and from before, someone already blew the whistles on how the clinics used the self-pay to scan for the existence of the virus; while Chen told the press to stop this witch hunt, and yet, Cheng and the DDP supported media posted the spots of contractions, the dual standards of procedures, is it crises control, or just, keeping the government officials’ titles, or, is it, protecting the citizen here in Taiwan?

The commanders’ covering up the facts, the president, the head of government officials called out, “work together, with the medial staff members, to block out the virus”, and so, Yang, who’d pressed the government hard for the answers became used, as a scapegoat; Yang’s claims sounded too harsh, but at this time, he’d become, a scapegoat for Chen’s behaviors.

The people fell into a state of panic again, the president, Tsai, and the secretary of state, Su criticized Yang for adding fuel to the flames, and helped the online army grow stronger, and there’s the reappearances of hatred and anger that got started at the beginning of the outbreaks last year.  The government claimed that it’d cherished the medical workers, and yet, the medical workers were played like pawns; the government called out to everybody to have “empathy”, in actuality, it’s trying, to get everybody onboard, to silence those who has a difference of opinion against them.

People are afraid of the virus, and the government finally found that forcefulness from before the storms of the pork with ractopamine, using the outbreaks, to spark up hatred, and this worked to soothe the minds of the government official, than finding a working cure for MERS-CoV, developing that vaccine that worked.

And so, this, is what the government’s currently doing, it’s, diverting the attention of the people, manipulating the masses, using that ONE voice, the DDPs, and the presidents, silencing ALL voices that have something different to say, and, the sad part is that the people here, don’t see anything wrong with this picture, they get comfortable, allowing the government to THINK on their behalf, instead of thinking on THEIR OWN behalves!

The Girl Who Couldn’t Erect the Foot Stand

Do you think this supervisor of this young woman should, take away her chance of working to get the scooter going, or just, step in and do it FOR her, because she’s, already, running late?  Translated…

During the New Year’s holidays, Wei-Wei received a preowned scooter, it was a hand-me-down from her older brother.  She’d happily rode it to and from work, but found, that the scooter was, too heavy, being only 4’9, even as she’d used the weight of her entire body, to step down HARD on that middle foot pedal, the scooter still, won’t park steadily in place.

Although people say, that it has nothing to do with her size, that it’s a matter of, techniques, but, Wei-Wei seemed to have trouble getting the techniques right.  The friend told her, that then, she should, just park her scooter upright, that she shouldn’t, force herself to park it the way that most would, slanted.  But she’d felt it wasn’t right, for her to, take up, such a huge parking spot, in the city of Taipei, where, a tiny spot for parking, is, hard enough to get.

立不起中柱的女孩。今日登場/HOM

As her superior passing by her, seeing how this young lady was, struggling hard, trying, to get the foot pedal to park on the ground steadily, seeing how she’s about to be late into the offices, the superior contemplated on, whether or not she should just, step in, and do it FOR her, or that she should, stay away, and NOT strip her of the right to learn how to do it own her own?

So, this, would be a sort of a dilemma this superior is faced with, should she just, step right in, and do it for this young woman, stripping her of the chance of figuring out how to do it herself, because she’s, about to be late to the office, or should she, let her figure it out on her own?  This is something that as parents, people face too, to whether or not just, STEP in to do it FOR our own young (not that I have one!), or to, let them do it on their own, figuring out how things worked, so they can, take that knowledge with them?

The Elderly Father Took Care of His Own Ill Daughter for Fifty Years, Finally Suffocated Her to Death, the Judge Gave the Man a Pardon

As the burdens of caretaking became too great…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Sentenced to Two-and-a-Half Year “Never Received the Social Resources, Understandable Circumstances………Suggested that the President Issue a Pardon”

The man, took care of his own youngest daughter who was born with cerebral palsy for fifty years, last February saw his youngest having a major toothache, plus the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, saw that the pain killers couldn’t alleviate her pians, he’d, smothered her to death with a quilt, and attempted suicide but was, saved, the Taipei District Court took into considerations that he took care of his own daughter long-term, and not received enough social resources to help him out, and, reduced his sentence twice on how he’d turned himself in, how his situations was what made him commit the murder, yesterday, Chen was sentenced to two years six months on domestic violence and murder. This can still be appealed.

The Collectivist Courts on the verdict, specifically noted that Chen (age 78) is a loving father, for the benefit of his own daughter, for fifty years on end, he’d, taken care of her himself, had it not been the outbreaks, he would’ve, continued, caring for his own daughter.  Seeing how much he’d loved her, and, how he’d, terminated her life himself, in the futures, he would be, imprisoned, by his own conscience, and, there’s, room for discussions on whether or not the country should, enforce, a jail sentence for him, and, suggested that the D.A. examine if Chen would be fitted to serve his prison terms, and suggested to the president, to issue a special pardon for him.

Chen’s youngest daughter because of severe cerebral palsy, couldn’t take care of her own life, is bedridden long-term, her body became, malformed, last February, she had a tooth ache, Chen wanted to take her to the hospital to get her tooth extracted out, the eldest daughter voiced her concerns, Chen worried that it would be hard for his youngest to get sedated for the procedures, and the outbreaks were, getting, more and more serious, he couldn’t take her to the hospital.  On the evening of February 29th, he’d heard his youngest moaning out of pain again, believed, that even if he’d fed her the painkillers, it still won’t help her reduce the pains, and he’d, smothered his youngest daughter to death with a quilt.

After Chen murdered his own daughter, he’d started becoming, suicidal too, took a huge dose of sleeping pill, fell into a coma, his wife found him the following morn, reported to the fire department, as the paramedics arrived, they’d found that the youngest daughter was, already, dead, rushed Chen to the E.R., as Chen regained consciousness, he’d turned himself in, for murdering his own, youngest daughter.

The Collectivist Court pointed out, that Chen was really close with his daughter, but could not receive the social resources he’d needed to give her the needed care, and he’d not received the social supports of the caretakers on time, it’d made the caretaking process even harder for him to endure, to the point that he’d started showing signs of depression, anxiety, as well as, insomnia too, and seeing how his youngest was in pain, and couldn’t help her feel better, he’d decided, to put her out of her misery.

Chen’s wife and eldest daughter both testified in court, that they’d hoped that Chen can be found not guilty, that if he was sent to prison, then, it will, try the family even harder.  Even the district attorney who argued on the behalf of the victim spoke on his behalf, suggested that the judge sentenced him to only two years.

But the Collectivist Courts considered, that the defendant had loved his own daughter son, and ended her life himself, that in the future days to come, he will get tortured by his own conscience, that there’s considerations on whether or not sending him to prison would be absolutely necessary, the courts suggested that the president sign a pardon for him.

And so, due to these, trying circumstances in life, this man had, decided, to END his own daughter’s life, out of mercy, but, this is still, MURDER, and it’s still, due to how this man didn’t alleviate the stress of caretaking soon enough, that this tragedy occurred, and now, the courts is planning to not punish him, based off of the trying circumstances of the family’s conditions.  And yes, this is still MURDER!

A Merciful Murder…

I’d, killed out of mercy, ‘cuz she’d been, suffering too long, losing control over her body, and, it hurt me, watching her die off slowly, little, by little, knowing that, time’s still nowhere NEAR, expiring, Y-E-T!

A merciful murder, I’d, committed, and, I don’t feel bad about what I’d done, because deep down I know, that I’d, murdered out of love, and care for that certain someone.

And maybe, I’ll, get sentenced as a heartless, coldblooded, murderer, but I don’t care, I got a cleared conscience here.  If I’d not murdered the person, then, I will, forever BE gnawed by my own conscience, for NOT doing what’s right by that person I cared too much about.

A merciful murder, I’d, committed, and, I really couldn’t give a !#$%ING RAT’s ASS how everybody else out here in this god DAMN world sees me as: a cold-blooded murderer, an unfitting child, whatever, I KNOW I did it, out of, mercy, my conscience is, clear!!!

A merciful murder, it’s not right to kill someone, in the eyes of the law, but, think about it, if it were your own loved ones who became incapacitated, and their quality of life is dropping by each and every breath they take, wouldn’t you want them to suffer less?

“You Can’t Learn How to be a Police Officer in the Classrooms”

After the theories, you also, need the applications, the HANDS-on experiences, to have the full training!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The police academy focuses the trainings on safety and enforcing the laws, and yet, the officers getting killed on duty are still, very frequent, a lot of the officers believed, that police officers work in a high pressure background, that “Doing things by the book” couldn’t subdue the suspects, or meet the demands of their quotas; there’s a huge gap between reality and what the trainings taught them in the classrooms.

Last August, the officer from Hsinbei City, Shue chased after a suspicious motorist out on his scooter, and rammed into the suspect, and died on the job.  This April, the police in Yunlin rode out on a patrol car to chase down the suspects who have drug priors, they impacted, and four officers were, injured.

In recent years, there’s the calls for NOT getting into car chases by the police, to tail behind the suspects at a safe distance, to call for backup, and a lot of the entry level officers laughed at these rules for being “from the ivory towers”, and suspected that the superiors demanded the outcomes of drug busts, the weapon busts, and if they don’t stop all the suspects how will they make the quotas.

But, being overt in pursuing the suspects can cause the officers to lose their lives, even injuring bystanders.  In March, the Taoyuan Police stopped a drunk driver, and the driver rammed the car toward the police, the police fired five shots to stop him, and accidentally, killed a female passenger on the backseat.

The senior officers told, that the police work is highly dangerous, the environment can change in a split second, and all the experienced officers all struggled between considerations of how much forces to use, let alone those who are just fresh out of the police academies; street smarts is what they’d rely on in working on the police forces, not the book smarts, it takes more than passing the exams to become a police officer.

In recent years, there had been many cases of police and civilian confrontations, and the deaths are still rising, the police department is now, paying more attention to the safety of the officers on duty, the suspects, the cases, other than adding the softer communication methods course in the academy, they’d also set up ten interactive shooting ranges with the virtual reality scenarios, the officers or the students will choose which to use in the numerous situations, the pepper sprays, the stick, or the guns.

Currently, the courses also required the trainees to rehearse the pulling the cars over for checks, to break up a gathering crowd, traffic accidents, and other more practical situations, so during school, these police trainees would have a sense of how to enforce the laws more safely.

And so, due to the influx of deaths during the job, the police forces here are, rethinking the measures of training, and helping to instill in the officers, that safety should come first, the pursuits of suspects comes second.

The Landlady of the Rao River Night Market Beaten into a Coma by Her Own Son

Another BLOOD-SUCKING L-E-E-C-H we have here, as his families finally, CUT him off, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Man Couldn’t Get His Mother to Hand Over the Deeds to the Properties, the Neighbors Heard the Shrilling Cries, Called the Police.  The Police & Fire Department Broke in to Save the Woman, the Son Taken into Custody.

A man in Taipei, Jeng, couldn’t get his mother to sign over the deeds to the properties that she owned, in the midnight hours of last, he took a huge nail puller, hit his mother in her seventies until she was in a coma, his younger brother was beaten up by him too, the locals heard the shrilling “help us!”, they’d called the police, the police and fire department broke down the door and saved the injured mother and son pair, Jeng’s mother lost consciousness, was taken to the I.C.U. for observations, the district attorneys charged Jeng on domestic violence and attempted murder, and the courts mandated for his being taken into custody.

Based off of understanding, Jeng’s mother collected the rents from the Rao River Night Markets, has two sons and a daughter, after her husband died, she inherited the properties, the first floor, she’d rented the space to the shops, and lived on the second floor with her second son, and rented out the first and third floors to tenants.

Based off of understanding both of Jeng’s sons are unemployed, the eldest who was involved lives on the boundaries of Songshan and Xinyi District, at Huling Street, because he got into drugs, and had priors in drugs, he’d gone home often to ask for money, and demanded that his mother signed over the deeds to the properties, to attempt to get his hands on the family’s assets.

The fifty-year-old eldest son at around one in the morn, returned to his mother’s home, demanded that she signs over the deeds of the property that’s worth $20,000N.T.s, but the mother was already in bed, and not paid him any heed, and this caused Jeng to feel upset, he’d used the large nail puller, and attacked his mother’s head, hands, his mother lost consciousness.

This tragedy happened late at night, because the elderly screamed out the shrilling “HELP!”, the neighbors heard, and called the police immediately, as the officers arrived, nobody answered the door, but due to safety considerations, the police called over the fire department to break down the door to save the elderly.

As the police and firefighters entered, they’d found Jeng’s mother on the ground of the second floor bedroom, suffered severe head injuries, with blood over her, she’d lost consciousness, they’d sent her to the E.R. immediately, she regained consciousness, and is now, in the I.C.U., the second son who was injured, and ran to the balcony to call for help, suffered fractures on his wrist and hand, and arm.

The police subdued Jeng and arrested him, confiscated the nail puller that he used, the case is being reviewed as attempted murder from domestic violence.  The neighbors told, that Jeng was unemployed, not gotten along with his families, only when he ran out of money, would he return home, and asked for valuables from his own mother, and, they couldn’t imagine that as he got home late last night to get more money, that he’d, beaten up his family members when they refused to give him the money he asked for.

The attorneys said, that in the more severe cases of domestic violence, the families can file for an emergency protective order, and after the courts reviewed over the facts and believed that the abused are in immediate danger, then, they will issue the restraining orders in four hours, and contact the local stations to keep the records of the case on file.

And so, this, is what happens, because you allowed this son of yours to SUCK you dry all those years, and now, you’d finally decided that ENOUGH is ENOUGH, and he couldn’t get the money from you this time, and, he flew into a rage, and, started attacking you, and this is still caused by the parents’ spoiling their own young, because you allowed him to SUCK you dry before, so why would this time be any different?  That I think, was the main reason why this man had, blown up and attacked his family members.

The Sixth Grader Ran on the Track Field, Became a Vegetable, the School Mandated to Pay the Families

Knowing this student’s heart condition, the instructor still made him run, that’s why the school is mandated to pay!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Four years ago, a sixth grade boy with a heart condition, ran around the school track, fell down, he was rushed to the hospital, and became a vegetable, the families filed a suit toward the country, the Taichung District Court found that school needed to pay the boy’s families until he turned twenty, the amount of over $40,000N.T. per month for the medical fees, and over $20,000N.T. per month extra until he’s sixty, that the amount of over $4.36 million N.T. needed to be paid to the boy and his mother for emotional distress.

The parents told, that filing the suit against the country is to get justice for their son who’s “growing up but never waking up”, and they hoped that their son will be the last victim of the negligence of the school campuses, the school already filed for an appeal.

The verdict stated, that the boy had a congenital heart condition, isn’t fitted for hard exercises, and all his teachers knew this.

On the morning of October 20th, 2016, the homeroom instructor told the whole class to get on the track field to practice running, and the instructor stayed in the class, not gone out to keep an eye on the students, allowed the boy to run two laps, the boy started swaying left and right, limping, and started panting, turning pale, along with other symptoms that he was not will.  The homeroom instructor saw, but didn’t call the ambulance immediately, the student was carried by another instructor to the nurse’s office, where the nurse performed CPR, until the paramedics arrived.

The judge believed, that the homeroom instructor wasn’t monitoring the boy when he was running, and not paid enough attention to how he was afterwards, and as the boy passed out, she’d not called the ambulance on time, that it all fitted into negligent in care, that the school should pay for the damages on behalf of the country.

And so, because you weren’t paying enough attention to this student with a HEART condition, and you made him run the laps, that’s why you’re, responsible, for his death, and the school got sued for it, because of the teacher’s not paying enough attention to the student’s health conditions.

The Hsinbei’s Hope Sprouting Plan Helped Nearly a Thousand Students to Go to School

A helping hand, for those children who want to get educated but are having difficulties affording it themselves, off of the Newspapers, translated…

The city of Hsinbei implemented the “Hope Sprouting Education Plan” last year, matching the hundreds of cram schools in the districts, to give the students from elementary to high school who are from bad economic circumstances a whole year’s worth of tuition free learning help sessions, including the academic subjects as well as music, abacus, mental calculations, and many other skills, this year, there were, close to a thousand students who’d signed up for it.

Yu who graduated from middle school because of this free tutoring program was successful in getting into the art track in high school, Ming who graduated from elementary school received free English help sessions, and gotten into the G.T. programs of middle school, and received a full scholarship.

The Department of Education pointed out, that any students who have a household registry in Hsinbei City, and qualified for low income sustenance, or other qualifications, can all apply for the “Hope Sprout Education Plan”, and the period of assistance lasts from September of this year to June of next year.

The head of Social Services agency under the Department of Education, Huang stated, that since the first year of this plan, it’d helped 500 students, and this year, it’d, almost doubled to 964 children, and other than the academic help, the system also included dance, chess, piano, music theory, and art, along with other forms of talents, and one student can apply for one course.

Yu who just graduated from middle school this year, showed an immense interest in drawing since he was young, in his second year of middle school, he’d decided to take the exams to go into a high school with the art trainings, but his family economic couldn’t allow, so he was thinking of choosing an alternative track, but under this plan, he was trained formally by an art studio, and, this year, he got into the art department of a certain public high school.

Another student, Ming, who just entered into his first year of middle school this year, being from a single parent household, although he lived under poverty stricken means, he’d kept his grades in the front of his class, he wanted to improve his English skills, his mom filed for the application of the Sprouting Plan, so her son’s English performance excelled, and he was able to test into the GT English class of a certain private high school, and received full-scholarship too.

So, these assistance programs are working wonders for these students who are willing and able learners, but lacked the monetary advantage, and this program lets them pursue their studies, with no worries of money, which allowed them to excel in the subjects they’re good in, which gives them a way, to pull themselves, out of their poverty stricken backgrounds, and this is a good program.
