The Star of Tomorrow in the Police Department Suspected of Taking Kickbacks from the Brothels

A TRULY BAD example, of police officers here, knowing the law, AND breaking it, all because of M-O-N-E-Y!!!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Taipei District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case of the Zhongshan Police Substation’s overlooking the operations of the sex shops, and found, that the former executive sergeant, Wu, was suspected of overlooking the brothels in his district while he was working in the local areas, and he took in bribe of $15,000N.T. per month, the district attorneys called Wu to their offices yesterday.  Wu denied being involved, the district attorneys believe he was evasive in his answering the inquiries, and, after they’d interrogated him, they set his bail at half a million dollars, and the former sergeant of the same station was out on bail of $700,000N.T.s, both men’s passports were turned in, to prevent flight risk.

The D.A. investigated and found, that there were FIVE members of this police substation who’d not only overlooked the operations of the brothels in their area, but also protected the male sex workers in certain whorehouses, so the men can keep on selling, from 2007 to 2016, the police officers at the station took in around seven million dollars N.T. worth of bribe.  After the District Attorney’s Offices indicted the officer Tseng at the start of this year, they’d zoomed in on the lead, that led them to suspect that Wu, Ho, Gao, and Yang were taking in bribes, Gao and Yang turned themselves in to the D.A.’s Office, and were both out on $200,000N.T.s bail and restricted from going abroad.

Based off of investigations, Wu was accused of overlooking the operations of the famous brothels on Linseng N. Road, and, the male prostitutes who’d accompanied the female guests out, were paid anywhere from $6,000 N.T. to $8,000N.T. each time.

Wu is an entry level officer, he’d worked in the specialized task squads, later he tested into the police college, last July he was transferred to the executive units, worked in areas of scanning for the sex industry operations.  He was perceived as a star of tomorrow in the police department, and now, he’d, ruined his own future.

The case all started, with how the local substation took the bribes of $40,000N.T. a month, to overlook the Japanese-Style bar’s operations in the sex trade, the Taipei D.A.’s Office last year took the former substation manager, Lin along with nine other officers into custody, there were seven officers who’d denied having taken the bribes, the D.A. is asking the judge to give them all heavy sentences.

The Taipei District Court not long ago set the bails for Lin and six other officers at $300,000N.T. to $1,200,000N.T.’s, and demanded that they don’t contact one another who are involved in the case, primary reason being, how the D.A. is still gathering the evidence in the case of Wu’s overlooking the operations of the man whore shops, and recently, they’d, gained valid evidence against him.

And so, this, is how someone gets enticed by money, and, these men, threw away a perfect career with the police forces, for what?  A few dollars, and now, they’re not just, getting fired, they’re also, looking at doing some HARD time for taking in the bribes, and, these sex shops are really bad too, in thinking, that they can PAY off the police to look the other way so they can, keep on operating.

The Lawmaker was Accused of Domestic Violence by His Girlfriend, He’d Found Himself an Attorney

A member of the legislation, accused of abuse by her/his partner, from the Front Page Sections, bad news, and the abuser IS a lawmaker too!!!  Translated…

The member of the legislative committee of the Executive Department, Tang was accused by his girlfriend last year for domestic violence, his girlfriend accused, that last May, they started arguing about the matter of pets, Tang bit her arm, and, got physically violent on her, injured her leg, yesterday, they’d trash-talked each other on FB, “Could it be that you’d taken what you saw in the legislative department home?”

The man, Tang and his office didn’t make any statement yesterday, the spokesperson of the Legislative Department, Kolas Yotaka stated, that Tang already hired an attorney for the matter, and everything will go accordingly to the judiciary process.

Based off of understanding, the girlfriend who was bitten by Tang took the injury examinations report she got from the hospital to the police to report the domestic violence she’d endured through with Tang, that last May, the two of them started fighting on matters relating to the dogs, and the fight got worse and worse, they’d started pulling at each other, Tang bit her arms, and pushed her down, she’d injured her foot because of his pushing her.

The girlfriend thought that that was all the fight was, but, Tang lost emotional control suddenly, ran to the lanai acting like he was about to take the leap; the girlfriend saw, took out her cell, started recording, then, as she recorded him, she’d gone up to pull him back down, to prevent him from attempting to commit suicide.

Tang’s girlfriend didn’t press charges immediately, until half a year ago, as the statutory period was almost up, did she go to the local substation to press charges against him; toward the police inquiries, she’d been, more than conservative, and only provided them with the documentations of her foot injuries and being bitten, and told the police what happened simply, and didn’t mention of prior incidents that may, or may not have happened from before.

Three days ago, Tang’s girlfriend stated on FB, “the legislator, Tang has NO say in my interpersonal relations.”; early yesterday morning, she’d posted, the violence came and went, “is this a representation of what’s happening in the legislature right now?”.

In an interview in November of 2016, as the very first cross-gender legislator, Tang said, that he’d been with his partner for over a decade, that they understood one another perfectly, “I feel like my destiny is intertwined with hers”; they live together, shared two dogs, seven cats, a total of nine “companion animals”.

And so, this, is a bad example, if what this woman accused her partner is true, and, the partner is a lawmaker too, and, if a member of the legislature couldn’t even follow the laws, how do we expect our country, run by these, law breaking lawmakers to run well?

From the Inside of Harvard: Asian Students Found to be Discriminated Against

Racism, found in one of the MOST prestigious schools in the U.S., and you still think that there’s NO problem in this world that we’re currently residing in??? Is someone IN DENIAL or what??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Harvard University was accused of discriminating against Asian students, based off of the documents turned in by the S.F.F.A. provided to the courts by the students, the Asian American students’ “personality characters” received a consistent lower marking, and thus, the rate of admittance were, lowered, had it not been so, the number of Asian students in Harvard would be, doubled, and reach forty-three percent.

S.F.F.A. accused Harvard for systematically discriminating against Asian students, that it was, against the civil rights laws. The S.F.F.A. claimed, that in admissions, Harvard used a “balancing of the races” method, causing there to be a lowered number of Asian students getting accepted, and allowing more whites, African Americans, and Latin Americans who aren’t as qualified to get in.

The New York Times reported, that the analyses by the S.F.F.A. showed, that on “positive characteristics”, including personable, courage, friendliness and “gaining a wider spectrum of respect”, the Asian applicants always scored lower than the other students who’d applied.

The Asian students performed exemplary in the areas of academia, tests, and extracurricular activities compared to the other races of students, but because of the Asian students’ “positive characteristics” being lowered, thus, it’d, reduced their chances of getting accepted into the school.

Harvard had denied the allegations on the fifteenth, stated that the analyses conducted by statisticians of the school showed NO such tendencies; during these past few weeks, Harvard had tried to prevent the related reports from leaking out.

And, if this is true, then, it only showed, how RACIST one of the most prestigious university in the U.S. is, and, maybe, the heads of the departments are rationalizing how they’re only, trying to give equal opportunities to ALL the students of ALL the races, but this is racial profiling, and it’s, happening right now, in 2018!

“If You Don’t Pay, I Shall Take You into Custody”, the Officer Who Took the Bribes Was Indicted, the D.A. Suggested Probation for Him

Police, extorting a drunk driver, because he was annoyed, and thought hey, maybe, I can, make a little extra cash on the “side” with money as the sources of ALL crimes here, isn’t it??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A rookie officer from the city of Hsinbei, Lin, last year in June, he’d, arrested a drunk man illegally, afterwards, he’d, let the man go free on his own, and, used the opportunity of his involvement in a case, and extorted $200,000N.T. from the defendant, and the man turned him in for it, yesterday the district attorney’s offices of Hsinbei indicted him on embezzlement and some other charges.

During the time of the district attorney’s office’s investigations, Lin admitted to his crimes, and turned in all the money he’d received, and the D.A. asked the courts to consider, that Lin had a good attitude after he was caught, and that if he made a confession in his trial, then, he would get only probation.

查看來源圖片like this???  Not my comic…

The indictment pointed out, that officer Lin, had been working in the Sinchuang Police Substation of Hsinbei City after he’d graduated from the police academy since 2015, on his shift on June 22nd of last year in the midnight hours, he received repeated calls from Chou, who got drunk, turning in the parking violations; and because he’d gone to and from multiple times, he was angered, and in Chou’s not breaking any laws, he’d not read Chou his miranda rights, just, cuffed him.

Although Lin arrested Chou on obstruction of social order, and defamation charges, but he’d not gone by the law, instead, he’d, given him a lift home in the squad car, and after Chou sobered up, he was called into the substation, and extorted.

The D.A. investigated and found, that Lin threw down a stack of records of Chou’s arrests and offenses, and told him straight, “$20,000N.T.s, or I will charge you!” and said, “if you don’t want to pay, how would you want to handle this?”, they’d started bartering, and in the end, the price was reduced to just $20,000, which was wired into Lin’s bank account.

And so, this would be, the ABUSE of power, and, because the officer got annoyed by how this man kept calling the station, and he drove the man home, waited until he was sobered up, then, EXTORTED him, and being a rookie in the force, still does NOT excuse his bad behaviors, and this is a man, who’s supposed to SERVE as a better example, of following the LAWS, and he’d, broken the laws!

and, this is how it’d, ended for him…查看來源圖片not my comic still…

The Husband Died, the Son is Ill, the Girlfriend Scammed the Woman for Forty Million Dollars

Vulnerability is the cause of being scammed here, from the Newspapers, translated…

A woman, Chen saw that her childhood best friend after she retired from the banks, she’d weathered through the death of her husband, her eldest son’s divorce, and she had a stroke herself, claimed that she knew a “master”, attempted of scamming her best friend for money using that she wanted to help her get rid of her bad luck, and, as her former colleague realized that something wasn’t quite right and called the police, that, was how this scam got busted, and the D.A. asked for Chen to be taken into custody, which the judge allowed for.

The police pointed out, that the sixty-seven year-old Chen grew up with the victim, and so, she’d trusted Chen, but, Chen too advantage of the victim’s husband dying, her eldest son fallen ill, her younger son in the U.S., working, she felt lonely and empty, in a year’s time, she’d managed, to scam her for about forty million dollars.

The police stated, that last year in August, Chen told the victim, that she knew a “master” who knew how to turn her luck around, to ward off her bad luck, but she must put up the money for the procedures, Chen used the fact, that the victim’s husband had died, because there was something bad in her karma, her eldest son’s divorce, as well as her stroke, are all, due to difficulties in her life, wanted the woman to pay a huge sum of money, to have rituals performed for her.

Later, Chen told the victim, that she was hexed by a former coworker, and that she must pay some money, to have the hex removed, or, she will lose her life, and her offspring will have bad luck too.  The victim had, given thirty million dollars N.T. to Chen, and Chen said, that she is in charge of manipulating the prices on the sales of properties, that she could make sure that the victim gets her property’s value increased, and the woman had signed over a house that she has in a very highly-priced neighborhood, to the bank, for ten million dollars N.T. for Chen to use.

Last month, Chen asked the woman to take her retirement pension which was very good from the banks out, to give it to her in cash, and the woman’s former colleagues realized that something wasn’t quite right, he’d notified the police, and, got the victim to use $100,000N.T., to lure Chen out, and, the police busted her.

Chen stated, that she was looking out for her old friend, that it wasn’t fraud, the police booked her on fraud, and, the judge allowed for her to be taken into custody after the D.A. pleaded the case.

So, this, is the downside of trusting someone too much, like this woman, who’d trusted the scam artist, and ended up, losing almost everything she had, but gladly, she didn’t, and this scam artist used her friendship with the woman, and she knew the woman’s state of mind, how she felt she was having a good run of bad luck, and that, was how she was able to scam her.

After the Death of a High School Student, the Police Were on the Look Out for the Bookies and Found Three High Schools and Twenty-Seven of Their Students Involved

Started too young, in the life of crimes, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The second-year high school student, Kao works as a bookie for a gambling website, because he’d owed $280,000N.T. in gambling debts he couldn’t pay up, on Mother’s Day, he’d attempted suicide by burning charcoal in his home.  The police followed the leads, and two nights ago, managed to arrest the bookies He works under, Tsai and Lee, and Yeou, who’s above the bookies.  After Tsai and Lee were interrogated, they were taken into police custody, and Chuang was charged with gambling right away.

The police sorted through He’s cell phone, and found there to be twenty-four other students from his school who were also involved, and, interrogated them all yesterday, and so far, three schools and twenty-seven students have been found to have involvements in the case, and from this, we can see how serious the problem of on campus gambling is.

The police stated, because the online gambling sites are set up abroad, and, the workers took cash bets, it’s really hard, to find the person behind it all, and, Chuang was merely a “small fish” in the gambling websites.

Tsai and Lee are both minors, and, although they’re involved in the gambling charges, they weren’t caught in the act, and so, they were sent home after being interrogated, alongside twenty-four others, and, they’re to make their appearances in juvenile court at another date.

The investigative officers pointed out, that two weeks ago, Lai, another student from He’s high school, because of how much pressure there was for him as a junior bookie (Retailers), after He learned, he’d taken up the post, but, for the next two weeks, because the students who’d signed the bets couldn’t pay him, and he’d owed the debts himself, he and his peers owed a total of $160,000N.T.  And because the debts are collected on Mondays, in order to find a way out, to turn his situations around, on the evening of May 9th, before Mother’s Day, he’d bet in the “Dice Games”, but, in just one night, he’d lost $120,000N.T.s, the very next day, he’d left the message, “Lost my final bet in life”, committed suicide by burning charcoal.

The student, Tsai was once the upstream for Lai, in February, he was caught by the police, and, he’d handed his job to another student from another school, Lee, later on, He connected with Lee, Tsai and Lee admitted to working as the general agents, and reported to Chuang directly; Chuang sold drinks at the night markets regularly, and, in order to increase his earnings, he’d gotten the agent rights from a gambling ring online, from a man nicknamed “Chang”, absorbed Tsai, Lee as his downstream, on the ninth, he’d heard Lee told, that “He is suicidal”, but he didn’t know He personally.

The police officers said, the student He accepted the bets from his fellow students, and got 1.5 percent of the fees, and, the bets ranged anywhere from $100 N.T. to $10,000N.T., the gambling rings used the temptation of making huge amounts of money to attract the students, and, at the start, they’d given them the sweet rewards, but, they’d found an assortment of reasons, to withhold their commissions.

The police suspected, that He had lost the bets, and, wanted to gamble one last time, to see if he could make what he’d lost back again, and maybe, he was affected by the Japanese comic of “Revelation of Gambling”, the main character from the comic was a habitual gambler, with high debts, in the end, he’d taken his friend’s advice, went onboard a gambling ship called, “Hope”, placed his final bets, ended up, winning everything, but the money was scammed away by his friends, He might have copied the behaviors in the stories, but, he’d ended up, committing suicide.

So, this, is the cause of the death of a high school kid, because he was tempted, and, once he was drawn in, he’d found himself, sinking deeper, deeper, and deeper, and in the end, he couldn’t get out, so, he took the easy way out.

A Strong Man Beaten Someone to Death, But He Didn’t Use His Right Hand, So, He Was Given a Lighter Sentence

What the!!!  Translated…

A strong man, who had an amputation on his right calf because of a fire, Lang had been placed, because he was displeased at how his roommate, Huang often claimed and bragged, “I belong to the mob!”, in the middle of the nights, he’d gone into Huang’s room to beat him up; Huang, who was immobilized because of a stroke called out, “I’m sorry!”, and became limp, but he was still held out by Chi and beaten.  The D.A. believed, that Chi had once been involved in a boxing competition, knew that beating someone’s central nervous system can cause death, they’d charged him with murder; Chi said, “What the HELL do you know?  I’m using a ‘false’ fist!”

The District Court in Shihlin believed, that Chi didn’t use his right fist which was his primary hand, and didn’t use the beer bottle, or any sort of weapons to hit the man, that there was no intent for murder, gave him eight years, six months based off of involuntary manslaughter.  The District Attorney’s Office in Shihlin said, “Murder IS murder”, they’re going to appeal.

Chi (age 43) has priors in public endangerment and threats to get money, in a fire, he was hurt, his right calf was amputated; the Social Services Department of Hsinbei City has given him help, placed him in the Ai-Hu Development Center.  Huang was a stroke patient, relied on wheelchair to get around.  Last year in the early morning of August 31st, Chi went to Huang’s room, asked, “I thought you knew people, go call them all here then!”, before Huang had the time to react, he’d been fisted on the right side of his face.

Huang kept begging for his life, “I’m sorry!”, he’d become limp in his bed, but, Chi still held him up, and pounded his fists into him.  After Chi was done, beaten on Huang, he’d gone to the subprecinct to report, “I was threatened!”  the Ai-Hu Development Center took him to the hospitals, and Huang died on September 12th, because of a shock, induced by his own central nervous system.

Chi admitted to hitting Huang five, six times, he’d claimed that it was because Huang had used verbal insults on him, “I knew a gang in Sanchong”, and wanted him to “take out a loan, so I can spend the money”, that, was why he was displeased, the D.A. discovered, that since Chi started living at Ai-Hu, he’d only had two conversations with Huang, they never interacted, just because Huang felt insulted, he’d killed someone, and showed NO remorse, the D.A. asked for a heavy sentence.  But Chi insisted that he’d only used his left hand, and his left palm, to hit Huang’s face, close to the eyes.

See how it doesn’t take much, to SET someone off?  And, this loser still tried to WEASEL too, believe it or don’t, but gladly, the judge didn’t buy it, and still found him responsible.
