A Man, Displeased at How His Father Would Get Drunk Too Often, Killed Him by “Accident”

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.

Wanting to Keep Her Dignity, She’d Filed for Divorce at the Age of Ninety

Imagine the SHITS that this woman MUST’VE put up with, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The ninety-year-old woman, Yu stated that her husband is authoritarian, must have things his ways, and that they’d lived separately for over twenty years now, and she wanted to fight for own freedom, to end their sixty-six years of marriage together; on the first trial, the judge allowed for the divorce, but the Highest Courts used the rule of “nothing majorly wrong with the marriage”, to toss out the previous rulings.  The elderly woman held a press conferences and cried, “When I’m still alive, I will NOT be his widow; and when I’m dead, I will NOT be buried alongside his family”, hoped that for the rest of her life, she could “live as a free and a dignified woman”.

The elderly woman already appealed, and now the case is being reviewed by the highest court, she’d had her walker yesterday, with a mask, accompanied by the women’s activist group, along with her two daughters-in-law to a press conference, and, she started shaking uncontrollably and cried as she got so moved when she told them what had happened.

Mrs. Yu said, that a lot of people asked her, why at her age, she’d insisted on divorcing?  Because her husband is a very traditional Taiwanese macho man, and, when she didn’t comply with him, he would verbally abuse her; in her household, she’s a woman without her own voice, and when they’d gone on outings together, she can “only follow behind him like a dog”.  Later she’d moved into the residence of her eldest son, and during the separations, she’d wanted to divorce, but the husband would NOT allow for it, he’d even torn up the divorce papers and flushed it down to the toilet, which forced her to go to court.

Mrs. Yu stated, that even though the first trial approved of the divorce, but the highest court ruled that “after the separation, they’d still met up or gone out together, and during which time, there had been arguments, but there’s nothing so major in the marriage that it couldn’t be continued”.  She’d claimed, that during her separation, she’d only gone with her husband to her grandson’s graduation, and another time was because he’d signed up for a tour, but when they met, they’d had an argument, which proved that there was NO more love left.

But the high courts stated, that eve3n though Mrs. Yu could NOT stand how her husband threw away the gift she’d given him and abused her dog, cussing her out, etc., etc., etc., but since 1990 when they’d separated, they’d still gone together to hang out with their children on holidays or weekends, and would give each other items, help each other out in daily living, and call one another up to show care and concerns, and back in 1990, 1992, and 2005, they’d gone abroad together, that the courts can’t rule that the marriage is beyond repair that there’s still hope.

And so, why can’t they just get divorced, under the rules of “irreconcilably difference”, after all, this woman HAD put up with this man’s BULLSHIT her whole life, and now, she wanted to do something FOR herself, and the courts do NOT allow for it, and that, would be a breach of HER basic human rights, wouldn’t it???
