Finally someone’s HAD it here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
A man, Hsu, was suspected of being displeased at how his father would beat up his mother after he got drunk, on the late evening of the fifth of this month, he’d once again, had an argument with his own father, he’d used lamps, fans, and beat up his father, and the very next day, he went to work, like nothing had happened, until the police showed up at his door, did he realize that he’d beaten his own father to death, and yesterday, the court mandated him to be in custody.
The police investigated and found, that the deceased had two houses in the apartment building behind the Taoyuan back train station, his wife and his eldest son lived on the fourth floor, while he and his younger son shared the second floor. The eldest son told, that his father is addicted to alcohol, and whenever he had the extra money, he’d spent it on booze, and would often get crazy and start throwing things and scream after he was drunk, and when the family didn’t provide him with the money for the booze, he’d hurt them physically.
Two mornings ago, the eldest called the father upstairs for breakfast, and found him lying on the floor, and even though he’d called up the emergency service vehicles, his father still died. As the hospital was resuscitating him, they’d found blunt force trauma on the deceased’s head, and the police started investigating, and found that the younger son had returned home on the night of the fifth, and had a serious altercation with the deceased, and so, the second son was listed as a possible suspect.
The younger son told the police, that the father had gotten drunk long term, and every day when the father didn’t get the money for booze, he’d get physical, started throwing things, even beat up on his mother who’s had a stroke. On the evening of the fifth, the son saw the house was a mess, and scolded his own father, the father punched him, and, he was angered that he picked up the fan, and fought back, just wanted to teach his father a lesson, didn’t know he’d hurt him so awfully, and so, he went to work as he usually had.
The neighbors pointed out, that the deceased had been punished for his domestic violence, afterwards, even though he didn’t get violent as much as he used to, but he still didn’t sober up, and, whenever he got drunk, he’d change, and would the neighbors would hear him, screaming out at his family, banging things, and it’s been going on for over a decade, and everybody took it to be normal now, and they didn’t expect that it would get so out of hand this time around.
And so, the abused fought back, hard, didn’t he, and, it still wasn’t from this last round of drinking and beating, it’s from the years of abuse that the son lived under, and watched his own mother get beaten up, and, all of that, pounded down on him, which made him C-R-A-C-K this time, and, this time, he finally killed his own father.
