Another case of how a VIOLENT OFFENDER, with a mental condition had, escaped, the death, penalty here, still NOT justice that’s what this is!!! How the insanity plea, worked in this, psycho’s, “favor”, and there’s NOTHING that anyone (including the justice systems) can do about it, crime & Punishment, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The man, Chen clubbed his neighbor, Chung to death, the Pingdong District Court, based off of the psych evaluation by the psychiatric department of the hospital, believed, that as he’d committed the murder, he was relapsing from an episode of severe paranoia from his schizophrenia, that he couldn’t control his own behaviors, used the first of Penal Code 19, found him not guilty, and placed him in protective custody for five years. The families of the victim couldn’t accept this, they will ask the district attorney’s office to fight for an appeal.
There are just a case of how a female store clerk, Pan got her eyes gouged out by the man, Yang who also has schizophrenia, and yesterday the courts found Chen not guilty by insanity, which broken the promises of the local government’s setting a safety net for the sake of the locals. The legislators also questioned on when the holes in the systems will get patched up, with the recurrences of these events?
The assault on the female store clerk of the super convenience shop, the head of the village, Chang who had been attacked by the perpetrator led a group from his village, to head to the Sanitations Department of Pingdong to make their proclamations, Chang told, that now, the people in the village are all on edge. A villager, Wu told, that Yang had been in and out of the hospitals multiple times, and had multiple physical assaults on record too, but none of it stuck, and now, he’d used, a more fierce method, gouged someone’s eyes out, and the people are in a panic, due to this huge hole in the security net.
The assistant director of the Pingdong Department of Health & Sanitations, Chang told, that they will discuss with the Central Government on how to reach that balancing point between the rights of the mentally ill and the security of the local societies, that there is, a need for toughening up the reinforcements in the laws, that she will discuss the matter with Central government.
Two years ago in December, Chen first banged on his neighbor, Wu’s door with a wooden bat, beaten Wu to skull and hand fracture; last August, he’d clubbed his neighbor, Chung to death, after the one death, one injury he’d caused, the D.A. finally, prosecuted him on murder charges.
The courts investigated, that started in 2016, Chen had multiple hospitalizations due to schizophrenia. After the cases happened, the Pingdong Jia-Le Hospital and the Kaohsiung Medical School Hospital’s psych evaluations all found that he was symptomatic of schizophrenia, with strong persecutory paranoia. The Kaohsiung Medical University hospital found that the coworkers, the neighbors, became the persecutory individuals of the self in life, causing Chen two get into multiple fights with others, without the proper treatment measures, and his life being shut in, lacking that strong social support system, in the end, causing the brutal physical assault on the individuals whom he had the persecutory beliefs from.
The judge believed that it was Chen’s paranoid schizophrenia that’s made him committed murder, that he didn’t have control over his own actions. Based off of the first of Penal Code 19: “no punishment for individuals who are undertaken by the mental conditions, who couldn’t control one’s own behaviors”, gave him a not-guilty verdict. But considering the severity of his assault, of how Chen’s conditions can’t be watched over by his own family, and without the proper treatment measures given to him, there’s a high chance for him to offend again, that it’s seriously dangerous, placed him in five year protective custody.
And so, this is still, nowhere NEAR, justice for the victims, because this man poses a danger to himself, as well as others, but because he’d been diagnosed with schizophrenia, instead of charging him with attempted murder, and physical assault, he only got a slap on the wrist, placed in protective custody, in the, psych ward, and what happens, if, after his release, his schizophrenia “acted up” again, and he murders someone, huh? You just don’t let these loose cannons go all over the places on the streets, and yet, there’s nothing that the justice systems can do, because he’s been, diagnose with a mental condition here!
