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.

Found Not Guilty for Selling Illegal Substances, Because the Officers Didn’t Use the Right Measures to Make an Arrest

This is why it’s, important, for the law enforcement officers to do everything BY the B-O-O-K!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Two Years Ago, the Hsinbei Police Arrested a Woman, Chen for Using Heroin, Chen Claimed She’d Bought the Drugs from a Man, Cheng, and, Complied with the Police, Called up the Dealer to Get Him Out, Helping the Police to Arrest Him; in the Trials, Chen Testified, that the Station Manager Had Forced Her to Make the Calls to the Dealer, that the Police Had Coached Her on What to Say to Him, the Judge Believed that the Police were Framing & Abetting, that They’d Gotten the Evidence in a Flawed Manner, Found Cheng Not Guilty.  This Can be Appealed.

The verdict pointed out, two years ago at eleven in the morn on June 12, he’d met up with Chen at the restroom of a hospital, later, Chen was abusing drugs, and was found by her husband, he’d reported her, she’d claimed that the drugs she was abusing was sold to her by Cheng; at around one in the afternoon on that same day, Cheng received a call from Chen, he’d gone to sell her more illegal substances, and was arrested, and the police found 35 grams of heroin on him.

Cheng admitted to possession, but denied that he had intent to sell, that the illegal substances were for his own usage.  He said that Chen had borrowed $10,000N.T. to buy a scooter from him, that morning she’d paid him back $3,000N.T., that in the afternoon, she’d told him she had another $5,000N.T. for him that’s why he’d gone to meet up.

The Collectivist Courts investigated, that Chen wasn’t accurate on the details of the drug deal, in the interrogations she’d claimed that she’d paid $2,000N.T., and paid $1,000N.T. for what she’d owed, in the trials, she’d changed it to $3,000N.T. for paying back the debts, then, she’d, switched back to what she’d claimed in the interrogations; and the Highest Courts already had their understanding, that the supplies of the drugs by the drug addicts should NOT be the sole source of evidence, there’s NO other evidence that proved that the source of the drugs that Chen was abusing was from Cheng.

And, Chen claimed, that both her husband and the manager of the substation had forced her to call Cheng up, she’d told them, that unless she’d promised to pay him back, otherwise, he was, not going to show, and the station manager had, handed her the money, told her to carry it with her.

The Collectivist Courts asked Chen again, “The police asking you to call your dealer, to have him come out to sell you the drugs, did you provide that information, or, did the police want you to say it that way.”  Chen testified, “The police had, coached me on what to say……perhaps, they’d needed to crack another case in illegal substances, told me to tell the man that I am to pay him back, to pick up the stuff.”

In the end, the judge believed, that what made Cheng sold the drugs, was because how Chen went along with the police, to lure him out, that it fitted to “Framing and Abetting”, that the methods to which the evidence was obtained was, flawed, and Cheng was found not guilty.

And this just showed, of how the right things done the wrong way is still, WRONG, and these officers were too eager to arrest this man, that they’d, coerced the woman who abused the drugs to comply, and, the judge found the flaws in their methods of approach, of how the evidences were, collected, so he’d found the vendor not guilty, and now, he’s going to, continue, dealing drugs to more, and had the officers done this by the book, then, the dealer would be in PRISON!!!  But they hadn’t, and, there goes, another big fish caught, release, back into the oceans here!

The Police Searched without a Warrant, and Insulted the Woman Verbally

Because you’re a cop, therefore, you get to, abuse the person you’re, taking in, is that it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

As the patrol team of Taoyuan stopped a woman, Huang, the officers thought she’d, cussed them out, and took her into custody, but the district attorney found, that the two officers who’d made the arrest didn’t have a warrant, and they’d, cussed the woman out too, carried an awful attitude, believed, that Huang felt taken, that was why she’d, cussed the officers out, that she’d not intentionally offend a law enforcement official, dropped the charges; and, toward the officers’ abusing of their power in the arrest, the district attorney’s offices asked the supervising department of the officers to look into the matter more.

The safety squad said, they respected the D.A.’s dropping the charge against the woman, that they do concur with how the officers had gone overboard, and they will train them better from here on out.

Based off of the squad that took Huang into custody, at around five in the afternoon on October 3rd of last year, Huang (age 37) was suspicious, and the police stopped her on Shijien Road of Zhongli District, she’d started, cussing the officers out, and was taken into the police station on publicly insulting a police officer.

As the district attorney found the secret camera, they’d found, that the two officers didn’t have the right to search her car, and that they had no valid foundation for the searches, but they’d, gone through Huang’s backpack, cigarettes, her makeup, and asked her, “what did the judge give you the last time?”, ‘Did you miss us?”, and “!@#$ your mother!”, with the improper spoken verbal insults and tones of voice, Huang felt offended, called out, “I’m making my !@#$ING delivery you mother !@#$ERS!”, and, the police believed that she’d, threatened them, and she was, taken into custody.

The D.A. pointed out, that as the officers searched and found nothing suspicious on Huang’s identification, they’d demanded to search her home too, and said, “I’m certain, that you have a stash (drugs) in your home”., Huang believed, that the officers didn’t have a signed warrant, and the officers claimed, “We’ll have the district attorney write one up later”, Huang replied, “What do you think I am?  Three?”, the officers shouted back, “Watch your tongue”, “We’re calling in a female officer to search your body now!”

Back then, they were at a standstill, the officers told Huang, “I think you’ll, offend again!”, Huang felt insulted, and turned around to leave, and, the officers cuffed her, for cussing them out, demanded her to apologize, Huang couldn’t hold it in, and stated, cussing them out, then, she was, taken into the squad car, and taken back to the precinct.

The district attorneys pointed out, the two officers conducted an illegal search from the beginning, and used the cuss words that were, improper, how do they expect Huang keep her cool when they took her in?  And as they’d found nothing, they’d, kept her from leaving, in the process of the search, they’d, repeatedly, insulted, threatened the woman, and, used a set of cuffs to threaten her, and clearly, this was, an abuse of their power as police officers.

The D.A. told, that Huang took almost seven-minutes’ worth of improper treatment by these officers, and although she had, cussed them out, but considering how she was, angered, and, upset by their insulting her, there’s no clear intentions of her obstructing justice, the charges were dropped against her.

Yeah, this would still be, an ABUSE of power, just because you’d arrested her the last time, that still does NOT mean that you have the right, to do the illegal search of her car, and verbally insult her, and these officers should get punished for it.

The Police Shot Five Times Toward a Car Whose Driver Was Intoxicated, Driving Drunk, the Female Passenger Was Killed

An innocent life that’s lost, in the crossfires!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Bade Substation of Taoyuan Police two nights ago, stopped a car that’s, illegally parked on the streets, the driver, Wu was suspected of being intoxicated, refused to get pulled over, in the pursuit, Wu had backed up his car, and rammed into the squad cars twice, the assistant station manager, Tseng of the Bade Substation saw it was an emergency situation, he’d fired off five shots to make the driver stop, the police was firing into the tires, but, three of the shots pierced through the metals, and got into the car, shot the female passenger on the back, Yang, she was injured in her left shoulders, left thigh, she’d died on the way to the hospital.

During the interrogations, Wu (age 50) showed a 0.49 breathalyzer test, Wu stated how he was drinking, and felt that he might get caught for drunk driving that was why he drove away in the car.  Wu is a skilled worker, the deceased, Yang, is a counter clerk of a shop, as she was shot, Yang’s boyfriend was sitting, right next to her.

Because there may have been excessive force used, the district attorney already, interviewed the assistant station manager, Tseng, and, clarified the circumstances under which the gun was, fired, and sent him back to his post afterwards, the two other officers in the same patrol car were also, interviewed as persons of interest, and, sent back after the interviews, the driver, Wu, is being interrogated, overnight.

The Bade Substation stressed, that they will, do everything they possibly can, to help with the final affairs for the family, and, Tseng, the male officer was listed as person of interest, early yesterday evening, the D.A. examined the body of Yang (age 36), an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow; Yang’s families stated, that if the police were at fault, they are going to go to the courts.

The police chief of Taoyuan, Chen stated, that the city police chief inspector’s office is already looking into the matter, the police will comply with all the details of the requests made, to sort through everything, and if the member of the police was at fault, he will let it go to the laws, and if there’s no fault on the police’s side, he will, support his fellow police man too.

At 11:41 late last night, the Bade Police Substation sent out three officers to patrol the streets, as they passed Jie-Shou Road, Section 2, there was a silver sedan that’s, illegally parked, the police announced on the loud speaker, for the driver to pull over, but the man who drove the car accelerated, and the police were in pursuit.

As the police chased the car, the officers kept using the loud speaker, demanding the driver to pull over, but Wu refused to comply, as he drove to the end of the 422 Alley of Jien-Guo Road, Wu saw that there’s, no escape, and wanted to, back out, he’d, hit the car that’s parked, saw the police behind him, backed into the squad cars twice, and on the third time, it still, didn’t work, the assistant station manager, Tseng got out, fired into the back five times, but Wu still refused to pull over, still drove toward Jie-Shou Road to escape.

The officers, in the end, managed to finally stop Wu’s car two kilometers out, at the Jie-Shou Guan-Fu Intersections, as the officers checked into the car, they’d found Yang shot, by the time the paramedics arrived, Yang was already, out of consciousness, her upper body limp outside the car, as she was rushed into the St. Paul Hospital, because of her severe injuries, she was sent to Changgang Hospital in Linkou, and she’d died from losing too much blood, early yesterday morn she was pronounced, dead.

Based off of understanding, Wu had two other men and one woman in the car with him, all were his friends, two nights ago, the group gathered at the mutton hotpot to gather, had some drinks, they’d broken up the party close to midnight, Yang and her boyfriend originally planned to take a cab, but got into Wu’s sedan, and, ended up getting shot accidentally.

And so, this, is tragic, another, wrong place at the wrong time sort of thing, because if this woman didn’t get into the man’s car, and the man didn’t start speeding up his car, try to evade the police checks, then, she may still be, alive!

The Chinese “Army” from Online Changed the Postings on FB, Passing Out the Falsified News

The validity of the news, from the WWW!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The investigative bureau’s cracking down on the falsified news stories on MERS-CoV, they’d found that on the fans pages of Facebook, because of lacking in maintenance of the webpages, causing there to be a link on the site to China, which was used as a way of manipulating the flow of the facts and spreading of the rumors that weren’t, valid.  There are, another twelve of the websites before the presidential election that were, bought out by the online forces of China, with the untrue claims, aiming at causing war.

The Investigative Bureau recently called in the manager of the FB group, and the person who’d registered the site, a total of six people in for questioning, they’d claimed, that because they’d failed to pay for the maintenance charges of their website, they weren’t aware that the postings are, altered, that they’d not received any money from China, after they were all questioned, they were, sent back home.

The Investigative Bureau believed, that this sort of highly-organized and tactile maliciously spreading the rumors online, there may well be Chinese military involvement behind it, that it’s aimed at causing the citizens here to fear, to feel even more uncertain of the government, during this period of MERS-CoV epidemic.

Based off of understanding, there were the FB fans pages, due to lacking in maintenance, causing these site’s “About” sections, to get linked to the contents related to China, and from the start of this year, there were, the debatable statements about revolting against the Taiwanese government.

After chasing the leads, other than having highly debatable contents, the Facebook page had also, connected to a ton of external sites, with the “Content Farms” by the Communist in China’s patterns, in a short period of time, producing and spreading out the unchecked facts, and, duplicated them to the FB groups here to mass-distribute.

And, there were, another twelve internal links to the FB page, which was said to have been, bought out by a third-party platform, which became the provider of these, falsified news for the Content Farms, and, the time when these sites were bought was six months before the votes at the start of the year, mid last year.

The Investigative Bureau stated, that take for example, “puddingco” that was bought out, the original name of the company’s website remained unchanged, but the contents of what’s been posted are filled with the Chinese authorized news stories, the policies, along with the untrue slanders toward our nation.

And so, this just, makes it, that much harder, to know if what we’re reading is true or false, especially in these, sensitive times, when the Chinese government wanted to, take over the Taiwanese government, to UNIFY us, and, this is still, using rumors, to shake up the hearts and faiths that people have for the governing bodies of their own countries, and, there’s, NO way we would know, if what we encounter online is true or if it isn’t, unless we all know how to differentiate between facts and fiction already!

The Infant was Abandoned in the Park, the Stray Dogs Eaten it Up with Only the Skull Remaining

In the Dual-Lake Park construction area in Sanming District of Kaohsiung there were the construction workers who’d found a white package in the construction sites, as they’d opened it, they were shocked to find the corpse of an infant without the head, the police and district attorneys examined the body, suspected that the infant was eaten by the stray dogs after being abandoned by its, parents, they’re, currently, chasing the leads to identify the parents, to find if the infant was abandoned alive, or dead.

The location of where the body was found, was the back slopes of the Daping Yu First Cemetery next to a junk yard in Dingjing Alley of Sanming District in Kaohsiung, it was originally the public Ding-Jing Cemetery, but the city government had, relocated the cemetery, currently, the location is under construction of the greener park projects.

At around 1:30 in the afternoon yesterday, the contractors of the park started working, they’d discovered  small white package on the lawns, the workers went over, opened it up, found a tiny head with the face chewed off, they’d, immediately, notified the police.

As the police arrived, they’d, immediately, sealed up the site, the police found, that the infant head was wrapped in white tarp, inside the white tarp, there was also, a cardboard box, and around the 100 meter radius of where the box was found, were the scattered pieces of bone, they’d suspected that they may be from the infant.

The workers who’d discovered the infant head told, they’d stopped working for two, three days on end, that they’d discovered the package of white cloth, and because a woman often come to feed the stray dogs, there were, the gathering of, about eight stray dogs, the police suspected that the infant’s body was chewed up by the stray dogs, leaving the blood stains on the white cloth.

The Kaohsiung District Attorneys came with the coroners to examine the body, and, found, that the diameter of the skull was, only a little over ten centimeters, they suspected that the infant was, only a few days old, but, they couldn’t tell the sex, because there were the irregular lacerations of the skins on the neck area, and suspected that after the infant was abandoned, it’d been chewed up by the stray dogs already.

And so, we have, a Baby Doe, and, the way this infant got chewed up by the strays, was too awful, because its (as the sex is still, undetermined???) parents couldn’t, take responsibilities for it, and maybe, Baby Doe was a stillborn, maybe it wasn’t, nobody knows for right now!

He’d, Struggled on the Bottom of the Socioeconomic Ladders…Partnered Up in Business with His Friend, Set a Fire, Killed His Friend, as He Got Stuck in a Bad Situation

The courts showed leniency for this murderer, and gave him a lighter sentence for murder, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Lee held a grudge toward his friend, Chen, at the end of the year, two years ago, he’d gone to Chen’s resident, poured the gasoline around his place, committed arson, causing Chen to have burns on his body, he was rushed to the hospital, and died, the first trial found Lee guilty of murder, sentenced him to life in prison, the Kaohsiung High Subsidiary Courts considered how before he’d committed the crime Lee suffered from insomnia, and other problems, yesterday, based off of the rules of the laws of reductions in prison terms, sentenced him to sixteen years, and stripped him of his government position for ten years, this can be appealed.

Lee (age 53) has two sons with his wife, worked as a manual laborer at the fishing ports, but due to the reduction in the catches, his wages got cut to below $20,000N.T. per month, he’d started working as a temp at the waste water disposal unit, he’d also temped at the frozen foods factories as well.

In February of 2018, Lee planned to go into the shrimp business with his friend, Chen, but the work didn’t prove to be fruitful enough, he’d not made any money in six whole months, he’d attempted to kill himself by taking the medications; as he was rescued back, he’d, resumed working in the frozen foods factories again; because his second son is in college, and Lee was out of work for awhile, it’d, caused him economic stresses, plus he’d heard that Chen’s been spreading rumors on how he was lazy around, they’d gotten into an altercation in car sales too, and this, made him want to kill Chen.

On the evening of December 8th two years ago, Lee took a twenty kiloliter plastic keg to the gas station to fill up, the following day at around four in the morn, he’d, poured the gas onto Chen’s steel shack, ignited the fire around Chen’s residence, then, ran off, two hours later, he’d returned back to the scene drunk, told the police that he’d, committed arson.

Back then, because Chen was, asleep inside, by the time the firefighters got him out, he’d had second, third degree burns covering over eighty-percent of his body, as he was rushed to the hospital, he’d, died.

The first trial took into considerations, that Lee turned himself in, that he’d, admitted to what he’d done, that he he’d not reached a settlement agreement with the families due to his lacking of income, that he wasn’t someone without humanity, but the families of the victim asked the courts for a severe sentence, the courts charged him with murder, sentenced him to life in prison, and he’d had to, pay the family members of the man he’d murdered, a total of $2,547,500 N.T.s.

The second trial in the Collectivist Courts found, that Lee was originally sentenced to the death penalty, but because he’d qualified for the sentence reduction for turning himself in, but the first trial didn’t consider that he’d shown signs of depression, was mildly retarded, was insomniac, or suicidal, plus he’d pleaded guilty and was willing to apologize to the families of the victim, but the families of the victim wouldn’t accept his apologies, and that they’d not reached a settlement agreement due to his lacking in ability in paying them, believed that life sentence was still, too harsh, the Collectivist Courts reduced his sentence to only sixteen years.

And so, this is how a mental illness can, gets you a more lenient sentence, and because this man who’d, murdered his friend showed a good attitude (Whatever that meant!) after he’d turned himself in, and was willing to pay the victim’s families, that’s why he got off, easy.
