The Mixture Drugs Rose Up to Second as More & More Students Get Addicted

The new “breeds” of drugs, even more addictive!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Zhongzhen University hosted its Prevention of Adolescent Drug Abuse seminar yesterday, the district attorney from Kaohsiung D.A.’s Office, Gu pointed out, that the mix-type of drugs in the coffee pouches was ranked third on the student addictions in 2017, two years ago and last, these rose up to second, right after ketamine, strongly recommended the schools and the police start collaborating together, to rid the drugs off of the campuses.

Gu stated, that the police confiscated over 100,000 drug coffee pouches, the highest since 2012, and that there were the level three, level four new age drugs mixed into the mixtures, based off of the estimates of the coroners’ office, there was a hike in drug-related deaths last year during fourth quarter, as many as forty-two cases, and in just first quarter this year, there’d been forty-two cases, and the number grew to fifty-six by second quarter, and in just July and August, there were, twenty-eight cases.

She’d pointed out, that the drug drip-coffee packs often had the second level controlled substances PMMA, third level controlled substances mephedrone, Erimin, taking one pack doesn’t do a thing, but if the user took multiple packs, and combined with ketamine, the users are more than likely to overdose and die, from January of last to September of this year, there are already 120 who’d died of overdose, of them, sixty-three were from twenty to twenty-nine years of age.

She said, that the age group of using level three to four controlled substances are mostly those between eighteen and twenty-four, thirty-five percent; and, there’s, a lowered age of first-time users, there were 1,878 persons who’d started abusing the drugs for the first time in the ages between eighteen and twenty-four.

Because the schools feared being labeled, it’s hard to crack down on the drugs infiltrating the campuses, Gu suggested, that the school should file the reports with the school safety committee, then, the committee then send the reports anonymously to the police departments locally.

And so, because you don’t want the reputations of your schools ruined, you are more than likely to under report the citing, and this is not good, because if you don’t report the right numbers, the numbers are just going to, increase by the day, because the law enforcement agencies can’t step in on time!

Trump Refusing to Do the Presidential Debate from a Distance Claiming He’d Been Cured, and Set Up the Provisions of the Experimental Treatment Free to the Public

Why would “we the people”, want someone who showed a TOTAL disregard for the citizens’ lives as president???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Claimed that He’d Been “Cured”, Planned to Set up the Emergency Experimental Drugs to Treat MERS-CoV that’s Not Yet FDA Approved

Because of how the American president, Trump had contracted the coronavirus, the “Board of Presidential Debate Committee” decided on the eighth that the second presidential debate scheduled to air on the sixteenth to happen by interactive methods.  Trump immediately stated that he won’t be going to it.

The Second Debate Not Yet Set

Trump stated to the press, “I will refuse to take part in the interactive debates.  I will NOT waste my time on debating with my opponent who doesn’t face me.”

The Democratic candidate, Biden stated he was more than happy to do the presidential debates not in person.  But because of Trump’s refusal, the second presidential debate is now, debatable.

Trump was confirmed with contracting the coronavirus on the first, and on the fifth he’d left the hospital, returned to the WH to recuperate himself, the White House had yet to post the latest of Trump’s result from the sample he’d given.  He’d not followed the rules of quarantine as he’d returned back to the White House, he’d gone to the Oval Office to meet up with his cabinet members on the seventh, and took off his mask to give a tweeted speech outside of the White House.

The Return to the Oval Office

As Trump returned back to the Oval Office to hear the briefings, it’s the first time he’d worked with the officials after he was diagnosed.  The chief of staffs, Meadows said, that he and his Deputy Chief of Staff, Scavino had on a full hazmat suit, as they’re to enter into the Oval Office, but they’d not yet disclosed if Trump would do the same.

a video from YouTube on his return back to the WH…

The experts pointed out, for ten days at least that followed the confirmed diagnosis of MERS-CoV, it’s when the virus is highly contagious, and if the first of October being the day that Trump had contracted the virus, Trump is still a carrier, and spreading the virus around, and those around him are all at risk.

On the seventh, Trump went into the Rose Garden to make a personal video “Message from the President”, “I’m standing in front of the Oval Office now, and I’m back!”  Trump stated, that while in the hospital, he was ill, but twenty-four hours later, he’d felt okay, that’s why he’d wanted to get out of the hospital.

Before he was hospitalized, Trump received the experimental antibody treatment from a biotech company, Regeneron; in the film, he’d stated, that after he got injected, he’d immediately felt a whole lot better, “I believe this is the key!”, he would immediately sign the use of the antibiotic injection into use.

“These medicines don’t just treat the symptoms, they’d, cured me”, Trump described his conditions as “the blessing from God”, and that he was, “more than blessed”; he’d convinced his physicians to give the injections to him, and hoped that everybody else can be treated like the president too.

Trump said, that he’d personally experienced, that these medications were amazing, he will make the injections available to the American public, free of charge.

“You don’t need to pay for it, this isn’t your fault, it’s China’s”.  Trump said, China will pay for the spread of MERS-CoV to the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Yeah uh, because this loser (feel free to RAT me out!) got “miraculously” cured, he is now, even more bloated in his ego, thinking that nothing can and WILL, ever harm him, and in this whole thing, he still pointed a finger, when HE was the one who’d caused a ton of the WH members to contract the virus, for REFUSING to wear a MASK to protect himself, as well as others from contraction, and, do you really, want this BIG-HEAD (unlike the big oversized bobble head of the Queen!) to lead you, U.S. voters?  Feel free to get back to me on that, or don’t, I’m still just, stating the “facts” reported on my local papers here, and feel free to SHOOT the messenger here!

“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.

A Woman Spied on Her Husband Who was Having an Affair, Followed Him from Taichung to Fujian, Case Solved

Women are great private investigators when it comes to things like this that’s for sure, as this loser still attempted to WEASEL, and he was unsuccessful, because his WIFE is, too intelligent!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A woman, Chen found it odd, that her husband often went to China, once she’d followed him there on the ships, and forced him to admit, “I have another woman, with kids” I needed to deal with; she’d wanted to just turn a blind eye, but as her husband had the webcam chats with the other woman in front of her, she got furious, sold the land, and pressed charged against him.  Although Chen’s husband told, that “I’d admitted to having another woman to get under her skin”, but the courts used the voice recording files, and mandated that he needed to pay his wife $300,000N.T. for the emotional distresses.

In 2018, Chen found her husband had gone to China quite frequently, and every time he’d not told her he was going off, and took a ton of cash away, she’d started suspecting that he had another woman in China.

At noon on August 19th, Chen found her husband, after waking up, rushed in the shower, and headed off in a hurry, she’d asked, “Where are you going?”, he’d, dodged answering her, and told her to butt out, then, rushed off.  She’d shockingly thought, that he may be off to China again, and checked and found her husband’s passport gone, decided to follow behind him.

As Chen took her passport to the Port of Taichung, bought the fare, and she’d found her husband for sure; he’d refused to tell her why he was heading over to China, she’d decided to tag along behind him, followed him to Fujian, as they reached shore, her husband told her, “I’m with someone else in China, I have a child too, I need to take care of it.”, asked her to give him time so he can, try to get rid of the child, and take care of the other woman.

Chen was forced to accept it as a fact, but cherished her marriage too, decided to give her husband a second chance. But, she’d found that he’d gone to China again, to cohabit with the other woman, and had webcam conferences with the other woman with her right there, she’d decided that she was done with forgiveness, sold off the land that her husband gave to her as a gift, and sued him for encroachment, and demanded that he paid her in court.

Her husband claimed, that during the time he was away in China, she took up with another man, after they couldn’t communicate, to get his wife angered, that was why he’d lied about how he was having another woman too, but he didn’t.  He said, that he’d lied about the other woman a long, long, long time, that his wife was suing, to cover up the fact that she wanted the assets left by his families to him, to divert the attention.

But the judge reviewed over the voice files provided by Chen and found Chen stated, “it’s you!  You’re the one taking up with another, and have a child too, and you asked me to prove my faithfulness to you, how do you plan to handle this?”  Her husband answered, “I will deal with the other woman.”  Chen stated, “You have another woman”, and he’d stated, “I’d already, broken it off with her…………”, and based off of that, the judge believed that the infringement claims were, true.

And this still showed???  Oh yeah, we women keep on forgiving, and forgetting, while you MOTHER @$!%ERS keep on humping around, with your whores, and now you have an illegitimate child, you still ask us to put up with your FUCKED (don’t pardon me here!) up ways?  And we’re all what?  Just supposed to look the other way, and feel blessed that you LOSERS still come crawling back?  Well, I got NEWS for you FUCKERS (don’t pardon!): we won’t, because we’re all done, forgiving, and we will, NEVER forget, as in, E-V-E-R.  Not in this sort of a serious betrayal.

Why Feel Loss, as Life Approaches its Dusk

A second life, the right attitude to take, toward aging here, translated…

Few years before I retired, every year I’d find some time, to travel around the island for a few days with my wife, or, work with the time schedules of the local celebrations, and it’d always, left those, memories so memorable to us.

As I retired, all of us, coworkers, good friends all regained our own freedoms of mind and body back, and, we no longer just, traveled as couples, but, hollered out to those who will join us, and, the group of us would tour everywhere, to hike up the mountains, and, the frequencies turned from once a month to weekly trips.

And, every time we’d gone out with different people, and, we had different habits, and, getting along with each other became, something we all had to, work on.  But thankfully, everybody is’ older, and we can, all learn, to tolerate each other, and find that delicate, balance, which made these trips, good experiences, very memorable.

Some say, the best assets as we entered into our elderly years, is to have friends with whom we can share things with.  Surely, in this aging community, the younger generations aren’t willing, or without the time, to stay close to the elders that they have, and, we, the aging need to have that understanding, to know, that having the company of old friends, so we won’t, lose the center of our lives.

And, looking on the world, there are, too many, disasters, and my friends were all touched by them, we couldn’t, predict, at what moment, these things can, befall onto us, and we’d, learned, that living in the moment is the most important; especially where we are in our lives, we should, take a hold onto, that colorful sunset, before the sun goes down, so we don’t, waste our lives.

Growing old is a process we must all face, but, no need to feel stressed.  The old saying stated it well, “knowing how beautiful the sunset is, no need to fear when the sun sets.”, how to keep life radiant, colorful, fulfilled, it’s all reliant on your selves; gather around with a group of friends, to go outdoors, to immerse yourselves in nature, it’s, not a bad idea!

And so, as life slows itself down, you’re, nearing the sunsets of your lives, and, instead of feeling worried over death, you should take this attitude of having been through everything, and start enjoying your life after retirement, because you never know when your lives are ending, so you should, take advantage, to live out the rest of your aging life better!

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.

No Worries

Can’t set our minds at ease, no matter what, because we cared too much about each other!  Translated…

My son has, absolutely NO faith, that his scatterbrained mother can take care of his young by herself, and I can’t feel secure, that he’s riding out late at night, making the deliveries, it’s, a looped around cycle of worrying, between parents and children.

The sudden onset of the outbreak of MERS-CoV, it’d, impacted the industries across the world, being on the front lines in the tourism industries, you can’t imagine it.  And, even though, we’re, going into, the post-outbreak times, the tourist industries tried to make it, by, proposing the trips within the country, but my daughter-in-law is responsible for the tour groups abroad, and, it’s going to take a while, until that start back up again.  In this very hard time, those who worked in her office took the pay cuts, some got laid off, everybody was on high alert, some quickly, transferred to alternative industries of work, to take the baseline minimum monthly wages to make ends meet.  And at this time, my young granddaughter came, and, other than the basic living needs, there’s, this extra expense, and so, my son had to, start making the deliveries after his regular work hours.

Canceling the nannies, and I’d become, the temp nanny, and I, naturally, supported my son’s methods of saving the money.  Actually, I’d, longed to have a grandchild a very long time, and, as I was gloating on it, my son handed me the Holy Bible of childcare that the nurses made from the hospital for the new parents, reiterated, “When you make the milk, first the water in the bottle, then the formula, make sure that the formula is melted completely, to the left and right, don’t shake the bottle up and down then, place it under the sink to get it cooled off, it can’t be too hot.” “Pour the unfinished amount out, don’t save it for the next feeding time.”  “Now the diapers have the signals of if it’s wet, when the signal turned from yellow to blue, time to change.” “Newborns shouldn’t sleep on their tummy, it would cause sudden infant death.”  “oh, and don’t feed her any water!”

I nodded, like a good student, listening to the words of the school teacher, thought: this first-time grandma, is an excellent master back when, it’s just, I hadn’t, be in the realms a long time, I’d just, lost, all of my childrearing methods.

And, even though he’s away at work, he was, ill at ease, my LINE kept ringing nonstop.  “Mom, nothing’s going on, I just want to check in.”  “Did you put her down to a nap yet?”  “She cries a lot these few days, can you manage it?”, and, to stop him from flash-messaging, I’d sent him the photos of my young granddaughter, even though it was over forty years since I took care of a baby, but I still got it, I can, so totally, handle, a baby.

And, I’d, finally set my son’s mind to ease, but he’d, gotten me worried, I’d told him as he was getting out, “If you bump into a gambler, a drunk, or a drug dealer, if something feels like it’s, going south, RUN like the wind!” my son laughed at me, “it don’t matter who’s calling the deliveries, so long as they pay up.”  He’d not come home late in the night, and I’d not dared, sat in the living room and wait up, and, as I heard the key turn the lock outside, my unsettled heart calmed, and suddenly, by the following second, I was, able to, drift off into dreams.

Recalling how forty years back, I’d worked night and day, to help pay up the debts accumulated by my in-law’s family, my son were given to my ill mother-in-law and my chain-smoking father-in-law, I’d often snuck back home during work, to check out my eldest with two snots rolling down from his nostrils, getting held too tight, by my mother-in-law, whose bones had been malformed from arthritis; and my youngest son was often burned by accident by my father-in-law who had a cigarette in his mouth, dozed off to sleep, and yet, as I saw how sorry my in-laws looked, I couldn’t blame them.  And, no matter how awful, how insecure I’d felt, I still needed to believe, that these grandparents who may not be able to handle them, have the best intentions in mind, and will do their best, to care for my young sons.

Let go.  Set your heart at ease.  I’d, warned myself: the outbreaks shall pass soon, and everything will become normal, I just need to take care of my granddaughter well, so my son won’t have any worries, working, we both, need to, have that ease of mind here.

And so, this showed, just how, intertwined the parents and children are, from before, you worried about your own young, and now, he worries about his own young, and you too, and this, is just how parents and children are, we all worry too much!

The Supper He Made

So glad that it’s NOT my day to cook today!!!  Translated…

Looking at the table’s worth of food he’d prepared, I was, moved, became, dumbfounded!  The steamed crab, the pepper shrimps, the pan-seared tofu, the ginseng black-boned chicken…………all of which are, my favorites.

But three months ago before, from when my husband started, cooking the suppers on the weekends, it wasn’t, that wonderful scent of food that made my mouth watered that came out of the kitchen, and, what he’d made then, tasted, exactly like what I would take out to throw as trash, what’s worse was, he would NOT allow anybody, to criticize his, cooking skills.

To fight to my right to NOT cook on the weekends, I’d fought with him, for almost five years, him being, too macho, and no matter what, he just couldn’t accept the fact, that I do NOT want to cook on the weekends.  Back then he’d stated it too clearly, that we can go out to eat every now and then, but not every weekend.

Being raised by the feminist era, I naturally could NOT accept the time that women are allowed to have off from being a wife and/or a mother.  Taking care of the family during the week, I know I’m reasonable, for NOT wanting to make the meals on the weekends.  Should the mothers shoulder everything?

And, we’d disagreed, more and more, and the meals on the weekends became, a war zone, the stresses was, building, I just, wanted to, get away from the warzone, and every time weekend rolled around, I’d, wanted to, not go home for supper, and not wanted my own families to worry, in the end, I can only, wander alone on the streets.  Then, my husband got into a silent treatment war, and I felt, defeated, over my own marriage.

One day, at supper, my child asked me abruptly, what his grandma liked to eat from what I cooked?  I was stumped, then, said, “tell the truth, I’d never cooked anything for your grandmother ever!”

My child was surprised, “What?  Grandma had never had anything you cooked?”

My husband who was already finished, looked at me instantly, then, lowered his head back to his cell phone.

I told my son, “before I wed, I was my mother’s baby girl, she’d never made me cook, told me that cooking was hard and hot, and even as we go home to visit her, she still wouldn’t allow me to cook.”

“So, is that why you cook so much right now, because you love it?”, he continued asking.  “I don’t like to cook, actually, I HATE it!”

“Then why are you cooking every day?”, my son actually hoped that he could have burgers every day.

“because nobody will cook for me, because I need to watch out for your health!  That’s why I’d, grit my teeth, and no matter how I hated it, I still, cooked every single day!”

his turn to cook!

photo from online

At this time, my husband’s cell phone had, turned black and he’d, failed to notice, because he was too focused, “eavesdropping” on my son and I.  And, this conversation may have, touched some part of him, and, he’d, turned that into the table’s worth of meal three months later, on this, very day.

And so, all it took, was for you, to LET your husband KNOW, that you got tired of having to make every single meal, but, he’d not understood, because you NEVER told him verbally, because you probably thought, that he should, already KNOW it, but he didn’t, NOT until he’d eavesdropped into that conversation you had with your son.

The Police Went Through the Obstacles & Caught the Ginger Farmer, Confiscated Six Hundred Million Dollars N.T.’s Worth of Marijuana

Apparently, the DRUG TRADES, paid, WAY better than planting those, normal, agricultural produces here!  Getting CAUGHT, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The ginger farmer, Liu in his own farm, in Lugu, Nantou, planted the marijuana, sold the plants off to a southern dealer, to make a killing, as the police in Taichung busted a drug deal last month involving marijuana, they’d followed the leads, went through the obstacles, and arrested the planters, Liu realized he wasn’t going to escape the law, he’d turned himself in, and, the police confiscated a total of 1,361 live marijuana plants, it’s the largest amount of marijuana in the drug busts in the history, and the drugs are estimated to get sold at over six hundred million dollars N.T.  The police pointed out, that they’d confiscated a total of 1,361 marijuana plants, and, based off of the estimates of each plant’s producing 300 grams worth of manufactured marijuana, the prices that Liu sold to the downstream wholesalers was $800N.T./gram, and it’s estimated that he’d illegally gained $330 million N.T.s, the Chiaotou D.A.’s office awhile ago asked the courts to have Liu into police custody, which the courts allowed.

The police found, that Liu in his thirties, was a local farmer in Lugu, he’d originally planted ginger, and other agricultural produces, many years ago he got involved in the scams, and worked at an external machinery room, was arrested, in prison for two years, as he was released, he’d realized that farming doesn’t earn him enough, and decided, to use an alternative method to plant the marijuana to make the money.

The Taichung Detective Squad in July of this year busted a dealing case, and as the officers compared notes, they’d found, that the level two dealers are stationed in Kaohsiung, and the Taichung police worked hand-in-hand with the Zuoying Substation, and called in the Chiao-Tou D.A.’s office for assistance.

After months of ambushing, collecting the evidence, the police passed through the five levels of obstacles, and the dealers told of the sources where they got the marijuana, and they’d found, that the highest on the chain of command was the ginger farmer, Da Liu, of Nantou.

The police at the start of the month went to Da Liu’s residence in Nantou to search, they’d found, that the roof, the steel shack, as well as his farms, were planted with marijuana, the police and D.A., in the midst of how shocked they all were, confiscated 787 live marijuana plants, and the equipment he used to plant the marijuana, while Liu was already, at large, after he learned of the police, trying to catch him.

And so, because planting ginger couldn’t get you enough money, because, let’s face it, these plants used for cooking, aren’t as, profitable, and so, you’d, turned to planting the marijuana plants, that’s, a much more, lucrative “business”, isn’t it?  And you got BUSTED!
