President Tsai Posts on Facebook Condemning Street Violence 回應治安事件頻傳 總統3宣示譴責暴力

President Tsai Ing-wen addressed the recent street violence on her Facebook and listed three points for improvement, including combating organized crime rings, strengthening night patrolling, and providing follow-up monitor and care to those with severe mental illnesses. 
 


In response to the recent string of street violence, President Tsai Ing-wen posted on Facebook on the night of the 22nd condemning the violence and listed three points for improvement. First of all, Tsai said she has asked the Ministry of the Interior to enforce combating street gangs nationwide. Second, police are to strengthen night patrolling to prevent crime. Thirdly, people with mental instability and illness are to be profiled for follow-up and to be provided with care and help before mental instability becomes a crisis. Tsai remained quiet when being asked to respond to the recent street violence during the Taiwan Thinktank 20th anniversary forum on the 23rd.

Reporter: “President Tsai, do you have anything to say to the family members of the convenience store employee that got stabbed? President Tsai, some people feel that you responded too slowly to the recent violence.”

There are over 10,000 comments under President Tsai's post, asking the Tsai administration to step up and do something. There are also criticisms as to Tsai being slow in response. Both pan-blue and pan-green lawmakers gave their views.

Chen Ting-fei, Legislator (DPP): “The objective this time is to bring national safety up to a whole new level. We need to repair and rebuild our social safety net so we can actually improve lives for people and offer a safer place for people to live in.”

Chen Yu-jen, Legislator (KMT): “What Tsai has done best in the last couple of years has been her online campaign, but have citizens' lives improved really? Are we any happier? I don't think so. Violence in convenience shops happens every so often. The community at large is concerned, especially parents.”

The recent string of street violence raises questions on Taiwan's law and order. Besides asking the Ministry of the Interior to tighten up law enforcement, President Tsai also demanded a law and order report at the Executive Yuan on the 23rd. 

 

 

 

最近發生超商攻擊、球棒打人和新北槍擊案等治安事件,引起社會關注,總統蔡英文22號晚間在臉書發文提出3點宣示譴責暴力,強調會要求內政部執行全國性同步打擊幫派犯罪專案行動,同時加強夜間巡邏以及針對嚴重精神疾病患者,強化追蹤及預警機制,蔡英文23號參加台灣智庫20周年論壇時,面對記者追問,蔡英文沒有多做回應。

記者詢問蔡總統:「總統,超商店員被刺,有沒有什麼話要對家屬說? 總統有人質疑您發文太慢了!」

近來接連生發多起重大治安事件,也有將近7千位網友,在蔡英文臉書上留言,希望政府拿出相關作為,面對外界質疑蔡英文的回應慢半拍,藍綠立委各有解讀。

民進黨立委陳亭妃表示:「在這一次提高整個層級,不只是治安,還要把社會安全網,這個破洞要把它弭平,這樣才能建構一個,讓人民安心的一些治安環境。」

國民黨立委陳玉珍表示:「幾年來我們看到,蔡英文做的最好的,真的就是網路的宣傳,那落實到人民的生活當中,我們真的有安居樂業嗎?沒有嘛,尤其像這種超商的店員的事情,已經接二連三的發生,那會讓所有的社會大眾,尤其很多父母都擔心。」

社會暴力事件頻傳,引發治安疑慮,蔡英文強調,已經要求行政院提升相關措施,23日也會舉行治安會報,到時會針對政策作為向國人說明。
