A Middle School Student Pushed His Friend in Front of a Moving Car, Charged for Attempted Murder

Teenagers these days, becoming MURDERERS, because they want what someone else has, but couldn’t get it, from the Newspapers, translated…

A middle school student in Yingge, Hsu, last month on the 22nd, was pushed by a fellow classmate, Chiu, in front of a moving car, and was injured, after Hsu’s mother learned that Chiu had once told her son, “After you’re dead, your iPad and cash would all be mine!”, the mother got angered and SUED the other student for attempted murder.  Both Chiu and his mother denied the allegations, the police claimed, that after the interrogations, Chiu will be booked based off of attempted murder charges.

The police investigated and found that Chiu (age 15), the middle school student, was suspected of feeling jealous of his fellow schoolmate, Hsu, because he has an iPad and a cell phone, which was bigger than his own cell phone, last month on the 22nd, he’d bugged Hsu nonstop, and had pushed him toward the street when Hsu wasn’t paying attention, Hsu was hit by a pickup driver, Fang, in the head, he’d suffered intracranial hematoma, his lower jaw and nose was broken too, he’d lost four of his teeth as well, the lower portions of the right side of his face was completely disfigured, and the doctors were able to, thankfully, save his life.

Hsu’s mother reviewed the surveillance footage, and found, that her son was pushed by a fellow student and was hit by the pickup, Hsu also told his mother later on, that Chiu had once told him, “If you’re dead, your iPad and cash would all be mine”, and Hsu’s mother got angered because of it, sued Chiu for attempted murder.

Hsu’s mother was also displeased with how the patrol officer from the Sanxia’s traffic team, Chang, that he’d used “I have other pressing cases”, to not go through the procedures of taking care of her son’s case, and, afterwards, the mother was so depressed that she couldn’t sleep on days on end, and on the very day, she’d taken her son to the police station to get his statement taken; and, because Hsu’s mother sued, yesterday, Chiu’s mother also showed up at the police precinct with her son, to get their second statements in, and Chiu still denied having attempted murdering his classmate.

The Sanxia Subprecinct told, that after the investigations, they will be booking Chiu based off of attempted murder charges, and, because the officer, Chang was not paying enough attention, he’d received one minor reprimand, and they will keep on checking to see, if there are, more negligence in relation to the case.

And, all of this still happened, because a kid got jealous of how another kid has everything, and, the kid just kept showing off, and, finally, the kid who pushed the other cracked, and that just shows, how emotional they can get during the teenage years, that anything and EVERYTHING can trigger their emotional responses, and, because they’re at their teenage years, they lacked the inhibitions toward their behaviors, and that, is why this had happened.

Rainy Days

From a Chinese blog I’m a subscriber to, translated, by me…

The days of rain, made me feel like I’m molding up

In the boredom of my days, I’d only had books, to help me pass the time now

Oh, how I hope, I could, graduate sooner………

Don’t force me to do something I don’t want to do

There’s nothing wrong with me, not wanting to talk, not having an opinion on stuff

And, I’d much not wanted to get punished for it

You want me to pretend?  I simply, can’t

Being a good student constantly, it’s become, too tiresome to me now

And, my bad temper still didn’t just start yesterday either

So, this, sounds like a teen, wanting to be left alone, by all of her/his adult counterparts, but, you see, the adults, they just won’t leave you alone, and how is it that I know?  Oh yeah, I was once, a teen too, and this, is just the internal workings of someone who’s juggling life, as well as her studies, and, life, is not at all, easy, for the children in this day and age, so, STOP pushing them already!

After the Death of a High School Student, the Police Were on the Look Out for the Bookies and Found Three High Schools and Twenty-Seven of Their Students Involved

Started too young, in the life of crimes, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The second-year high school student, Kao works as a bookie for a gambling website, because he’d owed $280,000N.T. in gambling debts he couldn’t pay up, on Mother’s Day, he’d attempted suicide by burning charcoal in his home.  The police followed the leads, and two nights ago, managed to arrest the bookies He works under, Tsai and Lee, and Yeou, who’s above the bookies.  After Tsai and Lee were interrogated, they were taken into police custody, and Chuang was charged with gambling right away.

The police sorted through He’s cell phone, and found there to be twenty-four other students from his school who were also involved, and, interrogated them all yesterday, and so far, three schools and twenty-seven students have been found to have involvements in the case, and from this, we can see how serious the problem of on campus gambling is.

The police stated, because the online gambling sites are set up abroad, and, the workers took cash bets, it’s really hard, to find the person behind it all, and, Chuang was merely a “small fish” in the gambling websites.

Tsai and Lee are both minors, and, although they’re involved in the gambling charges, they weren’t caught in the act, and so, they were sent home after being interrogated, alongside twenty-four others, and, they’re to make their appearances in juvenile court at another date.

The investigative officers pointed out, that two weeks ago, Lai, another student from He’s high school, because of how much pressure there was for him as a junior bookie (Retailers), after He learned, he’d taken up the post, but, for the next two weeks, because the students who’d signed the bets couldn’t pay him, and he’d owed the debts himself, he and his peers owed a total of $160,000N.T.  And because the debts are collected on Mondays, in order to find a way out, to turn his situations around, on the evening of May 9th, before Mother’s Day, he’d bet in the “Dice Games”, but, in just one night, he’d lost $120,000N.T.s, the very next day, he’d left the message, “Lost my final bet in life”, committed suicide by burning charcoal.

The student, Tsai was once the upstream for Lai, in February, he was caught by the police, and, he’d handed his job to another student from another school, Lee, later on, He connected with Lee, Tsai and Lee admitted to working as the general agents, and reported to Chuang directly; Chuang sold drinks at the night markets regularly, and, in order to increase his earnings, he’d gotten the agent rights from a gambling ring online, from a man nicknamed “Chang”, absorbed Tsai, Lee as his downstream, on the ninth, he’d heard Lee told, that “He is suicidal”, but he didn’t know He personally.

The police officers said, the student He accepted the bets from his fellow students, and got 1.5 percent of the fees, and, the bets ranged anywhere from $100 N.T. to $10,000N.T., the gambling rings used the temptation of making huge amounts of money to attract the students, and, at the start, they’d given them the sweet rewards, but, they’d found an assortment of reasons, to withhold their commissions.

The police suspected, that He had lost the bets, and, wanted to gamble one last time, to see if he could make what he’d lost back again, and maybe, he was affected by the Japanese comic of “Revelation of Gambling”, the main character from the comic was a habitual gambler, with high debts, in the end, he’d taken his friend’s advice, went onboard a gambling ship called, “Hope”, placed his final bets, ended up, winning everything, but the money was scammed away by his friends, He might have copied the behaviors in the stories, but, he’d ended up, committing suicide.

So, this, is the cause of the death of a high school kid, because he was tempted, and, once he was drawn in, he’d found himself, sinking deeper, deeper, and deeper, and in the end, he couldn’t get out, so, he took the easy way out.

A Birthday Party for a Group Ages Up to a Thousand Years Old

On the ins and outs of life here, translated…

We’d taken the advantage of the time that Mei-Yu who’d immigrated to Canada came back, we’d rounded everybody up, to head to Maokong on a weekday, to celebrate our sixtieth birthdays.

“Who celebrates their sixties?”, this, was a question, posed by not just those we are friends with her, but also, friends who had moved abroad too.

The leader of the group wrote a very long message, “the government had set up group weddings from time to time, we will also be hosting, a group birthday.  From being in the same classes as thirteen-year-olds, it’d already been forty-seven years since, and, most of the classmates are already sixty, whether or not you had met the ‘requirements’ or surpassed it, we’d hoped for all of us, with the combined age of at least a thousand, to head over to Maokong for a birthday celebration.”

And, immediately, a former classmate who’s retired wrote back, and, those who are still working tried to convince the group, that the gathering should be held on a weekend; and, those who’d become grandmothers had even asked, “Can I take along my two-year-old grandchild?”, and, the leader of our class said NO to all.  As for those classmates who are in the U.S. can only see how passionate those of us in Taiwan are discussing the matter.

That day, we’d found a group of ten members, although, we couldn’t add up to over a thousand years in age, but, this, was as perfect as it got.

We’d gone to the chicken shops to get fed, all the items were amazing in taste to us.  The Maokong Gondola looks out toward the 101 that shot straight into the clouds, Mei-Yu used her cell and took shots unstop, the beautiful scenes matched well with the savory foods.  And still, when the waiter brought in the specialty peaches for us, everybody exclaimed, turns out, this, was the set up, by the leader of our group, and everybody who was there appreciated her careful thought, and named her honorary leader.  We’d lifted our glasses, and wished everybody happy birthday, and gave hooray to our friendships, and made a date, to come up every year.

After the meal, the leader of the entertainments led us, walked from the hiking trails to the back mountains of the Politics University.  The trails was very easy, but, we can see, how those who failed to keep up with regular exercises had paled by comparisons to the rest.

At the moment, the group leader decided, that she will be gathering us all, for the activities regularly, and, Ding immediately said no, and, the rest of us also.  As we walked, we recalled the past, how fast the time flew, what we’d shared in the past had already become blurred out, and, everybody recalled differently, and so, we’d decided, that at least three members of the party must agree on an issue, for it to be valid, and, those of us who’d gotten into our first choice of schools are no longer bragging about our amazing memories.

We’d gone on this fun trip, holding hands, and, our friendships were just as it was from the day we met.  Everybody was celebrating our combined sixtieth birthday.

So, this, is how you can connect with your long-term lost-contact with friends, by hosting gatherings regularly, and, keeping up with everybody is truly very hard, but, this group still made the time, because they cherished one another’s friendships very much.

Lost My Directions, the Contemplations of a Teenager

Found online, translated…

In this great big vast world

I feel, that I’m lost

Sometimes, I’d sat alone, contemplating, trying, to find

The answers to the questions of my own life

But, to no avail

Man is great, because of his dreams

And yet, where, are my dreams?

Being lost

Can I, find a way, to resolve, this problem

Which, do I choose, a regular high school, or, a technical high school?

And, what would be my areas of studies?  I’m wrecking my brains right now

Says WHO school children DON’T have any worries, this young woman is worried all right, as there are so many available options out there, for her, to choose from, and, she’s at an age where she’s still, exploring her areas of interests, and, is not to be hurried, but hey, the world, it waits for NO one, and, she must make this vital decisions, that will, affect the outcomes of the rest of her life…

The Son is a Driver, and Had His Poverty-Stricken Parents Pick Up After His Mess

We have here, a SPOILED ROTTEN B-R-A-T who needs his mama and papa to CLEAN up HIS bad mess, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The nineteen-year-old youth, Deng worked as a driver for a scam ring, followed the orders and collected one million dollars totally, from the two victims, after he’d received $3,000N.T. for his work, he was arrested; although Deng was from a poverty-stricken background, his parents kept apologizing to the victims and paid for the damages their son had caused in installments, the Shilin District Courts, after reprimanding Deng, gave him the lightest sentence for the crimes, just one year in jail, hoped that he could really turn over a new leaf.

The judge pointed out, that the last year amended fraud of “over three accomplices” are over one, and under seven years of prison terms, and considered that Deng was still quite young, and was at the bottommost level of the scam ring, and that, was why the judge was willing to reduce his sentence.  Lu and Chen fell prey to the overly used scam of “We have Your Son”, and had paid Deng $200,000N.T. and $800,000 in ransom to Deng, after Deng got his $3,000 in payment for his work, he was caught.

Last year, the woman Lu got a call said that her son signed for someone, but couldn’t make the payments, and had been taken away, she’d quickly made withdraws of $200,000N.T.; five days later, a retired man, Chen got a similar call, he’d placed the $800,000N.T. by the MRT station in Danshui, but the caller stated, “You still need to pay us $500,000N.T. in interests”, he felt that it was odd, immediately called the police, and, the police caught Deng, who was there, to pick up the cash drop.

Deng said, that his friends told him, “just pick up the cash, and you’d earned some money”, that, was why he’d become a driver; Deng said, that a man named, “Stinky” only gave him a cell phone, and that the headquarter of this scam ring is located in China, and had remote controlled him by phone, telling him what to do, he was unclear who was responsible for doing what in the ring.

Their son had helped scammed someone and got into trouble, the parents are heartbroken, continually apologized to the two victims, and promised to pay up the money.  The victims saw how stressed out the parents of Deng was, said, “we’re worried that our son was abducted, that, was why we were scammed, and you worried about your son getting jailed”, all parents are the same, so, they’d taken pity on Deng’s parents and agreed to settle with them.

The courts investigated, that Deng was given a two month sentence for public endangerment for drunk driving, he was also involved in another case of fraud, and was being overseen by the district court of Taipei; awhile ago, when the judge of the Shihlin District Court opened the courts, he’d scolded the teen, “You really don’t have a clue”, Deng replied, “I didn’t know that the laws were this strict!”

And that, is how this young criminal got, BUT that minor SLAP on his wrists, and, because he had yet to learn his lessons the HARD way, he will surely return to his old ways of being bad after he’s released from jail, and, it’s all because the victims took pity on the parents, who spoiled their son rotten!

Was the Reason of His Suicide by Leaping Off the Buiding His Parents’ Unwillingness to Buy Him a Cell Phone?

See how SPOILED ROTTEN how EASILY they still CRACKED???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A second year middle school male student was suspected of being under great pressure in the academics,a nd wanted a new cell phone but the parents wouldn’t allow him, after he’d stole money from home, was found by his parents, and scolded, after school yesterday, he’d gone up to the roof, without dropping his things off first, took the leap, was dead before the ambulance could get him to the hospital.  After learning this, the family members blamed themselves, and the police will have the coroners examine the body today.

The community security guard said, that he’d heard a loud thud coming from the courtyard at dusk last night, he’d rushed to check, and saw a youth, next to the pools, covered in blood, he knew right away, that it was the fourteen year old resident from the fourteenth floor, Chou; and the youth’s older brother was studying in the library in the first floor of the community, the security guard notified him, to get his parents home, and call the police.

The paramedics, as they arrived, they’d found that the youth was wounded all over his body, and showed no sign of life, after they’d rushed him to the hospital in Yonghe, he still died.

Based off of understanding, Chou is the youngest of his house, and was suspected of not doing well in school, he’d gotten depressed; plus he’d told his parents he’d wanted a new cell phone, but his parents wouldn’t, he’d taken the money without anybody knowing, to buy the phone, and was caught and grilled again by his parents, the parents and child are on worse terms then.

As the parents rushed to the hospitals, they’d broken down, and, they wouldn’t say, that if they’d been a bit too harsh on him.

And so, we still have a strawberry that went SPLAT!!!  And, the cause of his death is still a COMBINATION of all the factors, his grades dropped, and the academic pressures, compiled with his parents not getting him that new cell phone he wanted, and it just cracked him, and, he’d chosen to commit suicide.
