Once again, this is still, a crime of jealousy, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
A delivery truck driver, Hsieh was displeased at how the transporter, Tsai kept pursuing his girlfriend, he’d called upon a friend who was once a famous competitor in weight-lifting to teach Tsai a lesson, by beating him up with a baseball bat, chopped off the tendons in his legs, left him to die, at a secluded road; the police arrested Hsieh and three other men yesterday, they’d said, that they were only looking to teach Tsai a lesson, that they didn’t consider how much force they were using, to beat him up.
The police investigated and found, that Hsieh (age 33), was strolling at the night markets with his girlfriend, he’d heard the instant message bells on his girlfriend’s phone sounding off nonstop, he’d discovered, that it was from Tsai, the delivery truck driver, and, after he’d grilled his girlfriend about it, he’d learned, that Tsai frequented the gas station his girlfriend worked in, and showed that he wanted to date her, after Tsai learned this, he was furious, said that he will handle the matter “like those things that happen around in the society”.
On the evening of the seventh, Hsieh found his weightlifting competitor friends, Hsieh and Chuang to help him out, asked Tsai out for a confrontation, at the exit of the freeways, the three men saw Tsai, they’d beaten him brutally with their baseball bats, then, tied him to the truck, and took him to the flood prevention passageways, then, they’d pushed the victim off the truck, started beating him like crazy, and had used a watermelon knife, and slashed his calf, then, they got up to leave.
Early next morning, a fisherman, Tu, went to the banks of the creek, to see if he’d caught some fish from the nets he’d set up before, he’d found Tsai, lying close by, covered in blood, brutally cut up, and was already dead, he’d notified the police. The local police sealed up the scene to take down evidences, and found a hospital slip close by, and confirmed that it was Tsai, and found out from his friends and family, that he was involved in some relationship difficulties, and, they’d zoomed in on Hsieh and his friends.
When the men were taken into interrogations, they’d stated that they only wanted to teach Tsai a lesson, that they didn’t expect him to die, Hsieh had told the police, that he was a weightlifting competitor in high school, that he didn’t consider how much force he was using, beating Tsai up, and afterwards, he’d even lifted the victim’s motorcycle and tossed it into a ditch nearby.
So, this man was murdered, because he went after another man’s girlfriend, sounds righteous, right? After all, we do NOT go after someone else’s girl, so, you might say, that this man had it coming, but, his death was too brutal, and, the boyfriend was overcome with jealous when he’d found out that his girlfriend was friendly with this other man.
