Taiwan Premier Liu will NOT apologize for police violation of civil rights

The first demand the students made in the current protest against Taiwan police violation of civil rights during Chen Yunlin's (陳雲林, Chairman of Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait, China) visit is that President Ma and Premier Liu should apologize.

Premier Liu, in response to a question he was asked in Legislative Yuan (to apologize for the police misconduct), said toady,


"I didn't apologize. This kind of thing, you just wait for a day or two and it will pass."

With a slip of words, Premier Liu reveals what he really has in mind about the student protest.

So Premier Liu obviously denies any police wrong doings under his and Ma's administration.

If President Ma has any wee bit of sense of guilt about ripping Taiwanese off the right of free speech and the right of walking on the street freely without the fear of police brutality, he would have asked Premier Liu to apologize before he does.

So the mentality of Premier Liu and his determination to ignore student's request signal the direction Ma's government is gonna take to deal with the student protest -- just ignore it. Not only is President Ma not gonna apologize, but also, neither National Security Bureau Director Tsai Chao-ming (蔡朝明) or National Police Agency (NPA) Director-General Wang Cho-chiun (王卓鈞) will step down (the 2nd demand of the protest).

To the innocent students participating the movement, it's probably their first fight for fears of losing human right they have been enjoying since they were born (thanks to those students who stood up to fight for that before them).

Unfortunately, facing a President and a government willing to sacrifice the human right of his people in order to please an official from China, I am afraid the goal of the current protest is too far to be reachable.

Do kids and grandkids of these innocent students still have the freedom of arranging a sit-in protest without being ran over by tanks like what happened in Tiananmen Square Massacre launched by China government in 1989 ?

May God have mercy !
