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.

Everything that’s, Riding, on This, Upcoming American Election

A matter of concern, for the WHOLE country, I tell ya, that, is what this SHIT is!

Everything that’s, riding, on this, upcoming American election, but, hey, we are, citizens of the R.O.C., of this place called, “Taiwan”, so why on this !@$$ING (maxed out???) earth, is the livelihoods, the lives of the citizens across the god damn, PACIFIC, riding on this upcoming American election again?

Oh yeah, it’s ‘cuz, this country, a place called, “Taiwan”, became the BITCH of the U.S. of A.  Think about it, the government agreed to the importing of American pork, beef, with all those, chemicals that might cause cancer, or something else (how the hell should I know???), because we want the protection of the good ol’ glory, while, the “great country” of the U.S. of A, is still, as opportunistic as ever.

And the government is still, just CLUELESS, believing, how wow, if U.S. is on our sides, we won’t have to worry about a coup de ’tat of China, I mean, look at what became of Hong Kong after its “lease terms” by England had been up, I mean, after the “Communist takeover” that island, sank, didn’t it?

To protect us from the same fates as Hong Kong, we must believe, that the U.S. would take our sides, if a war is in the future!

But, take a note of this: the “Good Ol’ Glory” had been opportunistic since the beginning of time (don’t ask when that was!), take for instance, the World Wars: if the Japs didn’t BOMB Pearl Harbor, would the U.S. head into the world war fronts?  HECK no.  And, don’t MENTION the Vietnam War in the sixties (right???), it was only a civil war in the country, but, the U.S. overinterpreted it as a COMMIE takeover, and thus, sent all those soldiers over there, to fight a war that they don’t have a place in in the first place.IN

His Wife, Physically Handicapped, the Husband Lost it, Suffocated Her to Death

The shortcomings, of the long-term care program set up by the government here, was a contributing reason for this tragedy!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

An elderly man, Tsai who was left to care for his own severely physically handicapped wife long-term, was suspected of not being able to handle it physically and psychologically any longer, awhile ago, he was suspected of putting a plastic bag over her head in an attempt to kill her.  As Tsai saw his wife, Wu lost signs of life, he’d called the hospital, and turned himself in, the hospital was able to resuscitate her back to life once, but two days ago, she’d still died of multiple organ failures, two days ago the D.A. interrogated the elderly man, charged him on murder, and set his bail for $50,000N.T.s.

The police investigated, that Tsai (age 67), and his wife, Wu (age 65) were married for over thirty years, the children are all with stable jobs, and are all married, they’re doing fine economically, but many years ago, Wu had a stroke, and had the continued repeated cycles of urinary tract infection, she’d spent her time on her sickbed, and had been transferred in and out of the hospital, that Tsai was her primary caretaker.

Based off of understanding, Wu suffered multiple strokes of late, had been bedridden long term, in a wheelchair, and her daily living is taken care of by her husband, Tsai and the hired nurse’s aide, a while ago, Wu ran a fever, was hospitalized, and the nurse’s aide also fell ill, and Tsai shouldered both their care.

what the man was left alone in dealing with…

He was suspected of getting burned out lately, at a little past eleven at night on the fifth of this month, he’d lost it, with a plastic bag filled with toilet paper, he’d, suffocated his wife, as he saw his wife’s heart stopped, thought that she was dead, he’d run to the nurse’s station, told the nurse on duty, “I murdered someone, I’m sorry!”, the hospital immediately took the victim to the I.C.U. to resuscitate, she was saved.

As the police were called, they took Tsai into custody, Tsai claimed, that his wife had been bedridden for a very long time, he could no longer care for her, that he tried to murder his own wife because he can no longer take it anymore; at a little past nine in the morn two days ago, Wu still died, due to multiple organ failures, as her son gave the statement at the substation, he was distraught.

And this sort of tragedies will keep on happening, because of the reduced birthrate, and how people are living longer, longer, and longer by the years, and, because there’s NO system of support, for these primary caretakers to get their needed breaks, that’s why they snapped.

Selling the Raw Ingredients Used to Make MDMA, the Man Was Found, “Not Guilty”

Yeah, uh, how the #$%^ is this not guilty?  Oh yeah, because unless all the substances are, mixed together in a chemical lab, it wouldn’t, considered, harmful, or addictive, is that it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Su bought the chemicals GHB, extracted the GBL (gamma-Butyrolactone) from it, mixed it with water, and sold the bottles, was charged with distributing illegal substances; the judge believed, that even though, the butyrolactone is used to make a level two controlled substance, but it’s not listed as a controlled substance, that it can’t prove, that Su was guilty of selling and distributing drugs.  In the verdict, it’d stated that the gamma-Butyrolactone wasn’t listed as a controlled substance, that the citizens can easily get their hands on, hoped that the FDA can place a restriction on the substance.

Last year on March 5th, Su used the communication app claimed that he had some substances for sale, the police acted as buyers, and used $1,800N.T. to order three bottles, and as they went to get the substance, Su was busted and arrested, and as the liquid was tested, it was confirmed that it had the substance, GHB in it, the D.A. charged Su on attempts to deal a level two substance.

Su denied having trafficked, claimed that he’d used a total of $3,000N.T. to buy two 500mL bottles of GBL, then split the volume up, and sold off the bottles to help get the party going; the defense attorney stated that the “liquid” confiscated by the police only had trace amounts of GHB, that GHB is highly unstable, and can change with the temperature, as well as the acidity, that there’s no proof that Su was selling the bottles with the GHB in it, and that Su did not intentionally sell the controlled substance either.

The Taoyuan District Court discovered, that the liquid that Su was selling had less than one-percent of GHB in it, and, although the courts didn’t believe that Su stated he wasn’t selling drugs, but based off of the data, the literature of the investigative bureau, the GBL soaked in liquid, will become GHB, with the changes in the acidity or basic level of the solution it was in, Su claimed he’d bought the solute on February first of last year, was arrested on March 5th, and the reports of the ingredients of the liquid he’d sold came out on March 23rd, there was the uncertainty of how GBL was turned into GHB due to environmental factors, that it was difficult, to confirm that the liquid Su was selling had GHB or not, he was released, on a not-guilty verdict.

This loser got off on a technicality, because this chemical is quite unstable, and can change with the varied temperature, that’s why the courts couldn’t confirm that he’d sold the raw ingredients to make the illegal substance for sell or not.  And this can be, a really BAD precedence, because now, every one who’d tried to sell off this particular drug can use the excuse that set this person free from here on out!

Is Democracy Totally, on the, Collapse in the World?

Commentaries about how democracy is actually, demoCRAZY here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The top two headlines; from a day ago, all the major newspapers are reporting on how the former president, Lee, “Mr. Democracy” passed; the following day, almost all the major papers are reporting on how the five former and current legislators had, taken the bribes.  Thirty years ago, the former president, Lee in order to let the more experienced representative to take his place, to reform the legislatures, he’d become noted as “Mr. Democracy”.  But, thirty years after the development of this democracy, the key lawmakers of the major parties were found to have taken the bribes from the enterprises, and this showed, how democracy doesn’t mean getting the citizens in directly voting for the president, it’d clearly, shown us, that it’s, too difficult a task, for the politics of democracy to head down the right tracks.

Four years ago, after Trump was elected as president, his methods of ruling the country, using his awful, wayward speeches and behaviors, tearing America apart, it’d made people started doubting democracy.  Taiwan followed closely behind too, these few elected representatives of the people, are a verification of, just that.

Actually, there’s, the corruptive characteristics of democracy.  Democracy is based off of majority ruling.  But, everybody neglected to note: all the major decisions, all involved the assignments of benefits; and, there is, a “cost of the deal” in every single decision.  What is meant by “cost of the deal” is how we needed to, compromise, in order, to reach an agreement; and the more people are involved, the bigger space we’ll need, and, as the number of participants increased to hundreds, thousands, even, millions, it would be next to impossible, to find a place to have all the people gather, let alone, having these participants find a time they’re all, available, and how they’re to, reach, an agreement on everything it’s even, harder still.  And the high price that we’re paying, is, the cost of a democratic, government.

And based off of this, democracy happens, at too high a cost, and yet, people are still pursuing it, blindly, thinking that if they cast a vote, then, their governments are, democratic, without realizing, those lawmakers are, manipulating the masses, by using the ambiguous wordings, to confuse the voters (like this last election I voted in, with the various issues of same-sex marriages, sex ed in the elementary years, etc., etc., etc.), and, this is, a test of the citizens ability to, think critically, but, mostly, when it comes to the votes, we let our emotions lead the way, instead of our heads, and that is precisely why, the world is, headed toward H-E-L-L!!!

Sold One Gram of Heroin, Sentenced to Fifteen-and-a-Half Years

A CRACKDOWN on drugs, the government is now, punishing the dealers, the users, more severely, than E-V-E-R before!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Hsu bought heroin from a man nicknamed, “Health Man” last year, then, he’d used the cost of $3,000N.T. per gram and sold it to another man, Huang, Huang thought that the heroin wasn’t high in quality, demanded a refund, Hsu offered him the brand new drugs, and the police was able to catch him, he’d denied having sold drugs, claimed that he and Huang had rounded up their money and bought from a man, “Health Man”, the judge didn’t believe him, sentenced him to fifteen years six months, and took the illegally gained money of $3,000N.T.s.  This can still be appealed.

The verdict stated, the Hsu (age 52) received Huang’s call last year, wanted to buy the A class drug, heroin, Hus first contacted the man nicknamed Ken, to get the deals going, last year at noon on June 15th, he’d taken the $3,000N.T. from Huang, and rode in Huang’s car to the east side of Taichung to meet up with “Ken”.

The two, upon arriving, Hsu went alone upstairs to meet “Ken”, bought a bag of heroin, then, took Huang’s car back to his rental stay on the west side of Taichung, he’d entered alone into his own residence, split up the heroin he bought into two separate bags, handed one bag to Huang.

And so, this, is the government’s, CRACKING down on the drug deals, and, hopefully, this will, deter all the dealers, from selling, because if the rest of the drug-dealing community saw how sever this man’s sentence for dealing just ONE gram of heroin is, maybe, it’s enough, to STOP them from selling too, hopefully.

When the Lives Became, Pawns, in the Game of, Politics…

查看來源圖片what we the people, became…photo from online

This is, what’s, currently, happening right now, ALL around the world here!

Lives became, pawns, in the game of, politics, those god damn world leaders (i.e. presidents, kings/queens, monarchies, etc., etc., etc.) they don’t give a flying FUCK how the people down here (in the REAL world!!!) are living, they’re willing, to SACRIFICE us, pawns to them.  ‘Cuz that, is what we all, “little people” are to those people in their, high up status positions.

When the lives became pawns, in the game of, politics, this world had, gone to hell, and, this world had, already, sunk down too low right now.  You got your world leaders, refusing to participate in the world meetings that might give a solution to the current plague (and guess W-H-O got, sacrificed?  The PEOPLE!), and you got those, people who are sent to war as mercenaries, and they think they’re, fighting for justice and freedom, well, they’re, N-O-T, they’re, just the, SACRIFICED pawns, in the game of politics that the leaders are, playing, they’re, expandables, easily replaced, after all, so many little pieces are on the chess board, so long as the king and the queen don’t, get taken down!

And that, is how the chess game called life, on this chess board called, THE WORLD is, being played, and there’s, NOTHING we can do ‘bout it, because, we’re all, enslaved by these, false ideologies of freedom, democrazy, etc., etc., etc., etc.

And note: this is how the word: DEMOCRACY should be, spelled here!!!

The American Secretary of Defense May be FIRED for Defying Trump on His Call to Draw Back the National Guards on the Marches

“You’re FIRED!!!”, no, we’re still, not “tuning in” to, The Apprentice, it’s how the current AMERICAN president (and no, still did NOT vote in that LAST election!!!) is currently doing!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The American President, Trump Stated, that if the Protests Get Out of Control, He Will Sent the National Guards Out.  The Secretary of Defense, Esper strongly Advised Against this on the Third, stated that He isn’t in Support of the Currently Enlisted Servicemen and Women to Help Keep the Peace, He’d, Talked BACK to the President Openly.  The New York Times reported, that Trump was Furious over Esper’s Words, and this also showed, how Trump’s Using Force, had Caused Chaos in the U.S. Military.

The New York Times reported, that the high up level officials of the D.O.D. worried, that sending the servicemen and women out onto the streets would lead U.S. into a state of martial law.  Asper stated openly, that he was, against sending the troops out, to dissipate the protesters, that only under extreme circumstances, will the currently enlisted servicemen and women be called to duty, “We are not in that condition right now!”

After the press conference by Esper, the D.O.D. immediately called back the 1,600 troops.  But, after Esper went to the White House for a conference, he’d, cancelled the order for the troops to be, sent away, the troops were standing by.  The New York Times quoted the reports from White House officials, Trump grilled Esper in the White House.

Members of the press asked, that as Esper spoke up against the president’s using the riot laws, did he lose the trust of the president, McEnany stated, that the president has “absolute power”, to use the law, to keep the peace, that the U.S. will NOT tolerate the burning of churches, the police forces getting SHOT at, the shops getting broken into, this is the power of the president, and tools at his, disposal, but currently, he has, no plans of imploring such measures, because after the National Guards stationed in, D.C.’s safety improved.

Based off of CNN, Esper’s behaviors had already, displeased Trump and the head of National Security, O’Brien; actually, there’s been tension between the Pentagon and the White House, because Trump didn’t weigh Esper’s opinions enough, the head of the D.O.D. didn’t have actual power, and on the matter of defense, Esper had to compete with the secretary of state, Pompeo for power.

In Minnesota, the four former police officers who’d killed Floyd were all prosecuted and indicted on the third by the Minnesota attorney general, Ellison, the primary suspect, Chauvin’s crimes were elevated to “Second Degree Murder”, while the other three members of the police force are charged with “aiding and abetting second degree murder”.

The riots are still ongoing in the U.S., there are the national guards, the servicemen in camouflage on the streets of D.C., the cases of robbery in New York on the rise.  But, mostly, around the U.S., the protests had returned back to peaceful, and there’s, a reduction of confrontations compared to days ago now.

And so, this, is how Trump did NOT have enough leadership ability, and, it also showed, how Trump would NOT allow for anyone who has, a different opinion than his own, he just, FIRE them, take them out of his, cabinet, and this, is what’s, currently, happening in one of the, “freest” countries in the world.

The Police Officer Kicked the Suspect’s Head in an Arrest, the Wanhua Substation Swiftly Handed Down the Punishment to the Officer

The police, abusing power in an arrest here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Man, Song, and the Woman, Shih Rode Home in a Cab in the Midnight Hours of Yesterday after They Got Drunk, the Woman Wanted to Barf, and Had Started an Altercation with the Cab Driver, Lin; the Wanhwa Police Had Six Officers Gone to the Scene to Handle the Matter, as the Officer, Weng Subdued Shih, He’d Used His Knee to Pin Down the Woman’s Face, and Smacked Her Head, Then, He’d, Kicked the Woman’s Head Two More Times, the Locals Filmed the Entire Process, Streamed it Online, and the Online Community Ranted on How the Officer Went Overboard in Measures of Making the Arrest.

This was the second case after last month’s incident when the officers arrested a teenager who refused to stop for a check, the Wanhwa Police held a press conference, and apologized publicly, admitted that the officer had gone overboard, and that they’re handing down the punishments for him immediately, gave him a reprimand, and transferred him to the backup squad teams.

like this???  Photo from online

Based off of understanding, the forty-four year-old man, Song and his twenty-one-year-old girlfriend, Shih, two nights ago were drinking in Wugu, Hsinbei City, as Lin found a cab early yesterday morning to return to Taipei, on the way, Shih had a hangover, the driver, Lin told her not too barf inside his car, demanded that Shih keep it down until he’d parked by the side of the road then do it, Song was displeased, and started cussing the driver out, they started in argument.

As the driver drove across the Zhongxiao W. Road and Xining S. Road intersection, the driver Lin parked the car, demanded both to get out, they’d started arguing, pushing and shoving each other on the streets, and the pedestrians called the cops; the Wanhwa Police Substation’s Ximenting Substation sent out six officers, subdued Song and Shih.

But after Shih was on the ground, the thirty-one-year-old male officer, Weng used his knee, to push Shih’s face, and smacked her head, then, kicked her head twice, the entire process was filmed, and streamed onto FB, and it’d, gotten the community ranting.

The police stated, that the officer, Weng started working in the force about a little over a year ago, back then, because Shih was too emotional, and as he’d subdued her, she’d still, cussed him out, and he’d, lost it, that was why he’d, kicked her, and afterwards, he’d known, that he’d, violated the procedures and, accepted the punishment handed down by the police department.

The Wanhwa Police held a press conference yesterday, stated that they will give Weng a written reprimand, and transfer him into the backup units; as for Song and Shi’s physically assaulting the officers after they got drunk, they will both be charged with obstruction of public order, and physical assault.

And so, it’s, not at all easy, to keep your cool, in situations like this, but, because of your status, as a cop, it’s vital, that you maintained your cool, and in this case, this officer didn’t, and, he got pulled off duty.

Why is it Important We Figure Out Where the Virus Came From???

Oh, I know, so these, unjustified, untested “proofs” of statements can finally be, valid.

Why is it important that we figure out where the virus came from???  It’s already been, “released”, and it’s, causing a whole lot more damage that we can contain, and, isn’t it more important, that we quickly, develop a working treatment, so nobody else, suffered?

Why is it important, that we figure out where the virus came from???  It’s already been, “released” in the world, and, causing, major damages here, there’d been rumors, that it came out of a laboratory setting from before, but this latest showed, that it’s, naturally, forming, and, we’re, unsettled on, which one to believe, and as we try to decide which version of the truth is, actually true, many more are, contaminated by it.

So, should it NOT be important, to start developing a working cure for it, I mean, it’s not like, we can, put that, genie, BACK in the bottle, now that the bottle’s been, cracked, wide open, is it?  No.

So why are the leaders of this, “free world”, still trying to, figure OUT exactly, where this virus came from?  I can’t think of a reason, other than, because we ALL need, someone to BLAME for what’s currently, happening…

But as I’d stated before, this is still just, ONE woman’s opinions, on “stuff”…
