The Bad Cop Invested in the Gambling Arcades, and Committed Arson on the Car, was Fired from the Police Department

An officer of the LAW, who knew it was wrong what he was doing, and still, did it, and he only received, suspension, believe it or don’t!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated….

There was an arson of a car in the Mado Substation jurisdiction in August, and the whole case, as the department investigated, was by Hu the officer who worked at the precinct, having debt disputes in the gambling arcades, and felt displeased that the worker of the arcade, Sun owed him money and not paid, he’d set Sun’s car on fire, he was, malicious; the Tainan D.A.’s Office called Hu to the offices, after interrogating the officer, Hu had the bail of $100,000N.T. for public endangerment and gambling charges.

The head of the Tainan City Police Department was furious upon hearing the news, believed that Hu had destroyed the reputations of the police office, yesterday, he’d fired Hu from his job and given him two major reprimands.

The Mado Police was investigating a car getting burned down on August 20th of this year, the car was almost completely, totaled, the owner, Sun wondered how the car caught fire?  As the fire department examined it closely, they’d found an urn underneath the car as the origin of the fire, after reviewing over the street surveillances, they suspected that there’s a high chance that this was, an arson.

The police went by the description of the victim who’s car was burned up, and zoomed in on the forty-four year-old officer, Hu who had debt problems with the owner of the car, Sun, and reported to the district attorney’s office to start up a specialist task squad, to secretly investigate Hu’s money flow, his communication, and his whereabouts too.

The police and the district attorney’s office investigated, that Hu worked in the police department for over two decades, mostly, on desk or internal duties, three years ago he was transferred to the city, but not long thereafter, he transferred back to Mado, was suspected of investing into the arcades, as the fund supporter of the places, that Hu was displeased at how the worker, Sun owed over hundreds of thousands of dollars in debts and not collected, in the middle of the nights, he’d committed arson on Sun’s car; as an officer of the law, when he’d gone to commit arson, he was wearing a cap, a mask on purpose, and dodged the surveillance cameras by placing an ignited pot of fire underneath the sedan, and half an hour later came the explosion, the burning down of the car.

Hu denied the allegations, claimed that he had an alibi, the police reviewed over the surveillance footages, although there was not a perfect view of the suspect, but the victim pointed out, how Hu was the owner of the gambling arcade, and the district attorneys believed that there’s enough evidence for a search warrant.

Based off of understanding, Hu is good looking, but as he worked in the police department, he’d gone on a lot of calls, made many connections with the locals, and this time the problem of his discipline came, some say that they’re, “not surprised one bit”.   Jeng stressed, that if the officer was found to have broken the laws, he will NOT cover for his subordinates, and will chase to the bottom of what had actually, happened, and do what’s, right.

So, this, is an officer who KNEW what he was doing was wrong, and still did it, and because he couldn’t get the debts owed to him by a player of the arcade, he’d, set his car on fire, and he got caught on tape, and, being fired from his work at the police station would be, the LEAST of his, worries, because he is looking at getting charged, and maybe, jail time too!

3:30 in the Morning

The hard work, the dedications, of these government workers, and it didn’t matter the hour of day, they’re, hard at work just the same!  Translated…

There’s this new shop opened up in Kaohsiung recently, I’d stayed there for a few days with the manager of my shop.  One day at around 3:30 in the morn, I was awakened by a call from the local substation, turned out, that the scooter we’d parked by the side of the road was hit by a car.  What happened was that a scooter hit another scooter, then, rammed toward the scooter we had that’s parked by the side of the road.  Although it didn’t sound serious, but because the scooters weren’t our own, we’d still, gone out in the middle of the nights to check.

As we arrived, the officers were still there, we were taken back to the substation by the officers to get our statements, and, being called to the police station in the middle of the nights, that was, a first for sure.  And, at 3:30 in the morning, the station was, already, busy, and, I’m sure, that referring to the station as such, the officers won’t even let out a single chuckle, but, during the forty-minutes I’d stayed there, there were, the locals who’d come in, and there were, seven officers on duty in the substation, and every one of them seemed to have, at least, three heads, six arms, sorting through the various matters that came at them.

We were assigned to an officer who looked like he came out of the soaps, with the dark brows, the big round eyes, with a loud voice, with that scent of justice about him, and, with his looks, even if he were in show business, he would play the role of the district attorney or an officer.  At the moment he was taking our statements, something else seemed to be bothering him, the drunk man came and pulled at him, “Sir, did you take my identification card, was it you, was it you.”  at the time this was happening, he was calling his superior to report something, at the same time, he was also, answering the call of a coworker, who’d ushered him to post out the photos of the accident, etc., etc., etc., and, before him, there was the manager of my bookstore, and me, who sat before him, in our, pajamas.

As he became, frustrated, handling everything that was hitting him hard, he’d, apologized to us, “I’m sorry for the wait, there’s just, too much going on, in these late hours of the nights.”, I’d replied, “it’s no big deal for us, that’s life, the jobs we chose, we do it, best as we can.”  The officer kept his head buried to his desk, answering, there was, that genuineness, that belief of he was doing what was just and right in his voice.

Recalling how when I was younger and looked for a job, I’d always become, confused of what work entailed, other than a paycheck, turning over, over, over, and over again endlessly, what’s the meaning of all of this?  With the coming of age, the confusions were, reduced, and yet, the younger generations still inquired from time to time, “What’s the purpose of doing this?”  are we, wasting our time? 

If you have something in your mind that’s deemed meaningful for you to do, then, working hard at it, it would, be the definition of what a good job entailed, like how this officer who’s, hard at work, at 3:30 in the morning, committed to his job.

And so, this showed about work ethics, and in these jobs, you are on call 24/7, and, you still stay hard at work, no matter what hours of the day or night it is, and this takes a ton of dedication for one’s own job.

Finding Joys in Helping Others in Need

Helping someone in need!  Translated…

Early in the morn, I’d rushed off with my daughter to work, as we alighted the buss, we saw a bunch of ladies, looking over an elderly man, the elderly man’s socks were, soaked in blood, and, the tissue that covered the wound in the tibia, seemed to continue to bleed.

Thankfully, two more stations more, there’s the VMH in Shihpai, as he got off the bus, I saw him, sat waiting with hardship at the bus stop, the blood still, flowed out, he seemed to be calling someone for assistance; and I’d not cared that it was time for me to get to work then, I’d, gone up to him, told him I worked in the hospital, and had him call his families to meet him in the E.R., while I’d gone to the hospital, to get a wheelchair to get him in.  Then came, the running fast, pushing the wheelchair in supersonic speed, to the E.R., to when his loved one rushed in, the man was taken into the surgical ward to get sutured up, and that was when that huge rock finally got dropped inside my heart.  Later, I’d learned from his family, that the elder had cancer, and he was on anticoagulants regularly, had his hospitalization been delayed, the results would be, dire.

I’d recalled how as I rushed the elderly man into the E.R., he kept telling me thank you, said that he’d met someone amazing who’d, helped him out.  I’d told him, he was my parents’ age, that if something like this were to happen to them, I’d wanted someone to lend them a helping hand too, and, this hour-long interlude, although it was, thrilling, but, in the end, it all, ended, well, other than knowing the meaning of helping other is bliss, I’m, also proud for being, that tiny screw inside that giant white tower!

And so, because your empathy kicked in, seeing the elderly man injured because you’d wanted someone to help your own elderly parents, and because it’s in your line of work, to offer assistance to people, being a medical care worker, and you’d, ended up, helping this elderly man get to the hospital on time, and saved his life.

The Four Police Officers Who’d Planted the Guns to Make the Monthly Quota Sentenced to Prison Time

Just like how it is in sales, when you needed a certain number of clients?  So, apparently, the police officers needed to make a certain number of arrests too, huh?  Officers who KNOW the law, and broke it, for the sake of making that “sales marker” of the monthly quota here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former office manager, Wu, former sergeant, Ting, and three other officers of the Pingzen Substation of the Taoyuan Police Department, eight years ago, made a deal with the drug dealer, Liu, they’d wanted him to plant the guns into others’, in exchange for his “get-out-of-jail free card”, the Highest Court charged the officers on illegal search, setting a criminal free, along with being dishonest as a government employee, sentenced Wu and three others anywhere from five years four months to six years three months, case closed.  Before the D.A. started the bust, the officer, Wei Chen escaped to Canada, there’s currently an international arrest warrant on him right now.

In 2011, the spring safety review, the Pingzhen Substation ranked at the bottom, the following year, the officer, Ting got a hold of how Liu used a gun to commit robbery, in order to get the quotas of guns confiscated, on January 18th, he and officers, Lee, Lin, Chen, headed to the suspect’s residence in Yangmei, Taoyuan, for a search without a valid warrant, and they only found illegal substances, and no guns; Liu worried that his girlfriend with an active warrant out on her arrest getting caught, he’d begged the officers to let them slide.

Lee told Liu, that the precinct is running short on gun busts, Liu promised to give them the tips, in exchange for his own and his girlfriend’s freedom, the police agreed to this “trade-off”, they’d not taken Liu into custody, and allowed him to take his girlfriend away.

The following day, Liu’s friend visited a man, Yeh, and stowed the guns and ammunition away inside the ceilings of Yeh’s factory, then he’d, notified the police to bust the man, and find the guns he’d stashed.

And so, this, is a quid pro quo, or a tit-for-tat, the police used their power, to threaten this drug dealer to help the police station make enough busts on guns, and because the drug dealer didn’t want to get arrested, he’d agreed, and, these officers broke the law, and they’re, supposed to, uphold, to carry out the law, and, they all deserved to be punished, more severely, than the average, common criminals, because they’re police officers!

The Officer Extorted the Sex Workers, Sentenced to Twelve Years in Prison

Yeah, this is exactly like those MOBS, taking the protection moneys from the local businesses, isn’t it???  And you work for the law enforcement agencies too!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former police officer from Zhongli Substation in Taoyuan Lee, after arresting a prostitute, through the middleman, he’d extorted money from the sex operations, the first trial gave Lee ten years eight months on encroachment, the second trial found that Lee was a law enforcement official, and received the bribes, and lengthened his sentence to twelve years, the Highest Courts tossed back Lee’s appeals yesterday, the case is closed, and Lee must serve the time in prison.

Based off of understanding in September of 2016, Lee arrested the prostitute, Tang in Zhongli, and found that she worked under the pimp, Lin, and who was the connected by his girlfriend’s godbrother as a middleman, invited Lin to meet up, which Lin told them, “Your business is flourishing, and you don’t think about paying the fees for me to keep your business under wraps”  “You shall get what’s coming if you don’t pay me the fees”!

And so, the culprit is still money here, because it seemed easy, to extort those pimps for money, so you had, and because they needed you to hush up about their business, they’re, willing to pay the prices, and you too the bribes, and now, you will be serving HARD time for it!

“If You Don’t Pay, I Shall Take You into Custody”, the Officer Who Took the Bribes Was Indicted, the D.A. Suggested Probation for Him

Police, extorting a drunk driver, because he was annoyed, and thought hey, maybe, I can, make a little extra cash on the “side” with money as the sources of ALL crimes here, isn’t it??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A rookie officer from the city of Hsinbei, Lin, last year in June, he’d, arrested a drunk man illegally, afterwards, he’d, let the man go free on his own, and, used the opportunity of his involvement in a case, and extorted $200,000N.T. from the defendant, and the man turned him in for it, yesterday the district attorney’s offices of Hsinbei indicted him on embezzlement and some other charges.

During the time of the district attorney’s office’s investigations, Lin admitted to his crimes, and turned in all the money he’d received, and the D.A. asked the courts to consider, that Lin had a good attitude after he was caught, and that if he made a confession in his trial, then, he would get only probation.

查看來源圖片like this???  Not my comic…

The indictment pointed out, that officer Lin, had been working in the Sinchuang Police Substation of Hsinbei City after he’d graduated from the police academy since 2015, on his shift on June 22nd of last year in the midnight hours, he received repeated calls from Chou, who got drunk, turning in the parking violations; and because he’d gone to and from multiple times, he was angered, and in Chou’s not breaking any laws, he’d not read Chou his miranda rights, just, cuffed him.

Although Lin arrested Chou on obstruction of social order, and defamation charges, but he’d not gone by the law, instead, he’d, given him a lift home in the squad car, and after Chou sobered up, he was called into the substation, and extorted.

The D.A. investigated and found, that Lin threw down a stack of records of Chou’s arrests and offenses, and told him straight, “$20,000N.T.s, or I will charge you!” and said, “if you don’t want to pay, how would you want to handle this?”, they’d started bartering, and in the end, the price was reduced to just $20,000, which was wired into Lin’s bank account.

And so, this would be, the ABUSE of power, and, because the officer got annoyed by how this man kept calling the station, and he drove the man home, waited until he was sobered up, then, EXTORTED him, and being a rookie in the force, still does NOT excuse his bad behaviors, and this is a man, who’s supposed to SERVE as a better example, of following the LAWS, and he’d, broken the laws!

and, this is how it’d, ended for him…查看來源圖片not my comic still…

Walking Out of the Darkness After Losing My Marriage

The growth of a woman, translated…

My close friend, Hsin-Yi and two girlfriends’ floral shop opened, a few of us, their close friends, made the time, to give them the congratulations.

We saw how in the small space of the shop, there were so many colorful bouquets, potted flowers, and fashionable pots, plus the professional floral arrangements too, with the explanations of the concepts, it’d made us all happy for her, that she could, get from underneath the dark clouds of the loss of her marriage, and find her strength again.

Three years ago, after Hsin-Yi’s husband had an affair, she was in pain, but, for the sake, of giving her daughter a complete home, she’d decided, to put up with her husband’s bad behaviors, but in the end, she couldn’t save, this already shattered marriage of hers, and ended up divorcing her husband.

After her divorce, she took her five-year-old daughter, moved back in with her parents, other than helping with caring for her daughter, the family members would give her encouragements often.  Plus, her two girlfriends from college would often come by to say hi, have heart-to-hearts with her, hoped, that she could, get out, from under the failed marriage, to not get trapped by the depressive moods, and encouraged her, to make plans for herself, and her daughter’s sake as well.

Later on, Hsin-Yi and her two girlfriends decided to go into business together, the three of them decided to open up a floral shop.  Because Hsin-Yi had the working experiences as a wrapper at a floral shop from before, she’d naturally took up the work of packaging, selection of the flowers, as well as the designs for the pots, and the two of them were in charge of the finances and sales.

The three of them worked with the plans of opening up shop, their days were fulfilled, and, it’d ignited that sense of hope, in Hsin-Yi’s life again.

For the sake of gaining a wide variety of customers, as well as upping her own professionalism, six months before they’d opened for business, Hsin-Yi especially took lessons in how to make corsages and bouquets for the brides, hoped, that she could add to her own professionalism, to offer her customers more choices, and to give her daughter a bit more material wealth as well.

Hsin-Yi told me, that getting divorced is not scary, what’s scary was getting sucked, into the glooms of the divorce.  She’s grateful to her own family’s support, as well as her girlfriends’, giving her a lift in time, so she could get stronger, and, start again.

So, this, is with the support from her friend, that this divorcee had found herself again, and, having a social support system like this one is especially important, when you’re going through a major change in your life such as a divorce.

You’re No. 1 in My Mind, from the Mind of a Teacher

Translated…

“Although you’re ranked LAST of your class, but, the attitude you took, to handling everything, you’re actually TOP of the class in my point of view!”

Early this morning, Jun-Ren from the First Class of the Sixth grade took out his year book, handed it to me, wanted me to write something that can give him the encouragements, without a second thought, I’d written those words down, tapped him on the shoulders, showed that I’d believed, how hard he’d worked.

Jun-Ren lives with his sixty-year-old grandmother, just the two of them, early every morning, he’d gone to recycle with his grandma, after 6:30 when the shifts were finished, he’d still must make breakfasts for his grandma, then, head to school for class; after school, he’d returned home to help his grandmother pick up the recycling materials, and wouldn’t get home until late at night.

“Jen is a very well-behaved and understanding boy, back when his parents divorced, they’d handed him to me, for the sake of making a living for the both of us, I’d started picking up recycling materials; I’d felt, that this, is shameful work, and so, I’d worn my face mask when I’d made my rounds, but, Ren told me, that we’d not robbed anybody, nor did we steal, there’s nothing to feel ashamed of doing what we did for a living.”  As Jun-Ren’s grandma talked of these events, her eyes started getting watery, “Ren is a very amazing kid, every day, he’d helped me on my recycling rounds, caused him to not have enough time to study, and he’d never complained about it.”

True, Jun-Ren was not only well-behaved, he was willing and able, to handle the public affairs for the class.  Last semester, as I’d assigned the cleaning areas, there were still two individuals needed for the fourth floor restrooms.  I knew, that there are NO students willing to do this sort of dirty and smelly job, but, as the disciplinary office’s director asked who’d wanted this job at the early morning gatherings, Jun-Ren raised his hands up first, and, invited his best friends to work alongside him.

And, as he’d cleaned up the restrooms, he’d rolled up his pants and sleeves, worked hard, to scrub the toilets clean; even in the cold winters when the water temperatures are freezing, he’d not slacked off either, he’d sweated it all out working the restrooms, giving this brand new aromatic scent to the restroom areas, which was originally wreaking of this rancid smell, he’d even gotten the excellent remarks each and every month by given by the schools too.

Actually, it isn’t that Jun-Ren hated studying, it’s because after his chores, he’d gotten too tired to do anything else.  But, his hard-working attitude awes us all, nobody in his class can compare.  And so, he’s ranked at number one in my mind, I will be giving him a certificate of achievement as well as a “first place for hard working mannerism” prize, to give him blessings for his future.

And so, the reason why this kid isn’t doing well is still NOT because he doesn’t study, but because he couldn’t find the time to study, because he had to help his grandmother work, to provide for them both, and, the teacher understood it, and, gave him the commends, and hopefully, this boy will take the teacher’s heart, and keep working, with his hard working mannerisms.

Stepping into a New Place of Work, Stepping OUT of the Comfort Zones, the Growth of a Woman

Translated…

My close friend, Yun recently left the public facility she’d worked for for over ten years, and entered into a completely unfamiliar realm of medical technologies.  The different environments caused her to feel stressed, naturally, especially entering into the top three pharmaceutical company of the country to work, she needed to come into contact with English contracts, and endless number of medications; and she needed to listen to the coworkers, using English, to explain the purposes of the medications, the side effects, etc., etc., etc., at first, she felt she wasn’t up to the job at all.

But, in order to adapt quickly, other than asking other senior workers from her department, she’d also gone to the research lab of her company to read often, to find out about the related matters, to up her skills needed for work.

After she’d changed tracks, Yun worked hard every day, as if she’s constantly engaged into wars, the regular overtimes had become norm now.  Sometimes, during her hour-long lunch, she’d still reviewed the terms of the contracts; other than the endless small and big meetings, she also needed to handle a lot of the executive suits, and related matters, this cycle happens every single day, but, Yun is more than glad, willing, to take on the various challenges that her workforce give to her, to take responsibilities for her own ability and the development of her own careers.

Recently, she’d beaten the group of outstanding coworkers in a training, and earned herself a set of silver coins that were made, to commemorate the company becoming publicly traded.  Yun was extremely happy, felt that all of her hard work, had finally paid off; and she’d also proved to herself, that her views of “not getting tied down by a certain format of work”, and “get interactive with people from various backgrounds, it’ll help you grow”, was correct.

She told me, because she is new in the medical industry, she’d constantly told herself, that she must put in more time, more energy, slowly, develop the skills she needed for work.  Because, so long as she has the professionalisms of the area, it doesn’t matter what sort of challenges will come her way.

I saw on Yun, not just a woman with the ability to withstand great amounts of pressure, but also someone who was willing to learn new things; and, I’m also in awe at how she was able to get out of her comfort zone with so much courage too.

And so, we can attribute this woman’s success to her ability to adapt, to make changes, and her attitude to learning, and that, is what the companies are looking for, someone who’s not afraid to get involved with something new, someone who’s hard working, that, is why this woman was able to succeed in her career.

The Counter Clerk as the First Line, on Customer Service Skills

Ins and out of the workplace, translated…

My son came home after finishing with the sales from the bank where he’d worked, he’d smiled at me and told, “All who came to my counter today seemed to be in a great mood, they’d said thank you to me in a light voice after I’d helped them take care of their businesses!”

This reminded me, of how once, I’d taken my mother to the bank, the counter clerk had a straight face, with her arms extended forward, with my mother’s national identification card, looking down, then up at her, down, then up at her again, to check, that it was her in the picture.  My mother was getting somewhat agitated from getting stared at by the clerk, she’d made a joke in Taiwanese, “what?  I was once young too!”, the clerk thought it was too hilarious, and, the corners of her lips started lifting, and, this awkwardness in the air, all of a sudden, disappeared.

There was a post office nearby my house, and because I’d needed to take care of businesses, I’d gone in and out of it several times a month; there was a temporary clerk, “Ms. Tang”, I’d interacted with her for thirty years, and, not once did I see her lose her temper, and, she’d smiled at her customer, and said those kind words to the clients, she hadn’t changed to this date.

Every time I’d walked into the post office, seeing her there, it’s like I’m back at home, I feel very leisurely and relaxed.  She would always skillfully and kindly, helped her clients deal with what they needed assistance with, it was, as if, she were interacting with members of her families.

I’d often seen how she’d patiently giving the customers who didn’t know how to write the addresses out on the packages they’re sending.  A few days ago, because the rain made my envelope wet, and I didn’t have the extra money to get one more, she’d handed me one, told me, “Just use this one!”, but this envelope, would be out of her own pocket.

Normally, when people get into this sort of a situation, they’d usually become embarrassed.  At which time, if the personnel can be kind and gentle toward the inquiries from outside the counters, I’m sure, that it would make a good impression on the customers.  After all, the hardworking personnel of the front line, carried the image of the entire company!

That just shows, how important it is, if you work in the service industries, or any industries, really, to keep that smile on your faces, to make yourselves personable, so your clients and customers won’t feel any uneasiness when they come to you.
