Clips that show police brutality and unlawful conduct between 3rd and 7th November 2008 in Taiwan

15/11/2008

 

There are some clips showing police brutality and unlawful conduct towards protesters against Chen Yunlin, Ma Ying-jeou and China and some innocent passers-by between 3rd and 7th November 2008. The level of police violence has been unheard of in Taiwan for about 25 years.

 

03.11.08

 

·         Police violently removed anti-China banners and protesters and destroyed a national flag. The police argued that it was an accident rather than a deliberate action.

 

 

·         Police unlawfully entered a hotel room booked by 4 councillors to remove their banners that showed ‘Taiwan’ and ‘Chen Yunlin, get out!’ A man in black came up and pushed reporters outside of that room but left swiftly when asked who he worked for. It was reported in a magazine the National Security Bureau, which is directly under the president’s command, was involved and Ma Ying-jeou was directly behind the security measure during Chen’s visit. To date, there has been no rebuttal to this article. 

 

 

04.11.08

 

·         A female documentary film maker/director was harassed by the police. She demanded that her basic rights be respected but was forcefully removed by a group of police from the spot. The police demanded to see her ID and confiscated her camera without a legitimate cause let alone a warrant.

 

 

·         She was taken to a police station and not allowed to speak to anyone, not even a legal representative until Taipei City Councillor, Chien Yuyen turned up to ask what was going on.

 

 

 

 

   

05.11.08

 

·         The police forcefully demanded a record shop to stop playing ‘Song of Taiwan’.

 

 

 

The police chief in the area got involved himself. When questioned in the City Council, he argued that the music was so loud that he had to intervene (which was a lie because noise pollution is certainly not in police jurisdiction) and yelled at the Councillor that he would do exactly the same if it happens again.

 

 

·         Police used force on unarmed civilians. A woman kept yelling ‘Stop pushing!’ Someone else yelled ‘police attacked me. Help!’ A woman then asked why the police attacked her.

 

 

·         A large group of armed police attacked unarmed young females.

 

 

·         Long time pro-democracy activist and political caricaturist, Yufu, called on the police to protect rather than attack Taiwanese.

 

 

·         Heavy police presence at the Grand Hotel: 15 customers in the company of 80 uniformed and non-uniformed police officers. When a female customer complained with a raised voice, a man threatened to throw her out if she carried on as she was putting off ‘other customers’. She asked ‘What other customers?’ ‘Are there real customers other than us? Are you talking about the 80 fake customers?’ The man was silent afterwards.

 

 

06.11.08

 

·         A group of police beat up an unarmed female

·         Police provoked, harassed and beat up protesters and passers-by. This clip has English interpretations. They blocked media and cameras while they were beating people up.

·         The police told a female supporter/passer-by to stop taking photographs and threatened to arrest her if she didn’t.

    抓到! 抓到了! 藍營支持者李廷鈞混入群眾推倒拒馬

    國民黨李永然之子李廷鈞

    這位李廷鈞去年就曾穿著警察制服冒充警察

    這次又混在圓山群眾裡鬧事

    栽贜嫁禍給民進黨

    希望法官重判李廷鈞

    好好教訓這些栽贜嫁禍 臥底的滋事份子

    希望警方徹查

    在圓山飯店丟汽油彈是李廷鈞嗎?

    李廷鈞,他在封鎖區內帶領群眾推拒馬,被警方以現行犯逮捕。

    警方指出,李廷鈞(21歲)去年12月間「大中至正」牌匾爭議時,他穿著警察制服冒充警察接受媒體採訪,被現場警察識破送辦,台北地檢署依冒充公務員服章官銜罪將他緩起訴處分1年,但李在緩起訴期間又違反《集會遊行法》,將撤消緩起訴。李廷鈞在封鎖區內騎機車是丟汽油彈的人嫌疑犯。

    國民黨律師李永然的兒子早就有身份造假的前科了! 之前還假扮警察在”大中至正”拆牌時襲警呢!

    李廷鈞是連續犯

    去年就曾穿著警察制服冒充警察

    今年又混在圓山群眾裡鬧事

    栽贜嫁禍給民進黨

    是藍營派來做臥底

    其父親李永然是國民黨黨產律師

    預估 國民黨法官會護航

    替李廷鈞 脫罪 無罪釋放

    預估 李廷鈞很快又會重返街頭民進黨運動

    繼續其擅長的 變裝臥底

    李廷鈞參加社團

    大家要合力將他扭送司法機關

    用帶DV、數位相機蒐證

    要拍 正面脫帽照

    以免 李廷鈞事後抵賴

    李廷鈞近照

    呼籲警方徹查圓山 丟汽油彈

    是個人行為

    還是有背後主使或組織教唆

    應徹查通聯紀錄

    這些都須釐清

    或從其身邊交往友人過濾
