Store Clerk Sues Maskless Customer for Disrespectful Behavior 提醒戴罩遭顧客挑釁 台南某賣場員工提告

Another conflict over wearing face masks has been reported in Tainan. A customer had been sued after he threathened to "settle things outside" with a store employee who advised him to put on a mask. Prosecutors ended up not pressing any charges against the defandant.


Employees at a convenience store tried advising a customer to put on his mask, but the customer would not listen, spitting out mean and rude words at the employees. He even challenged one employee to"bring it outside." The employee felt indignant over such treatment and sued the customer for violating personal freedom and for defamation. Prosecutors in the end decided not to prosecute the customer over violation of freedom and applied to the court to handle defamation as a simple case. The employee was unhappy with such prosecution results.

Mr. Yang, Plaintiff: “Prosecutors stated that I did not have any evidence. I had given them surveillance camera footage, but that wasn't enough for prosecution. Does that mean anyone could just exploit legal loopholes in the future to do whatever they please?”

Citizen: “It seems like store employees should just post a note up on the wall instead of trying to advise in person so that conflicts like this would not happen again.”

Lin Chung-pin, Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Tainan District Prosecutors Office: “The prosecutor thinks the defendant only told the plaintiff to have a talk outside. It does not truly constitute intimidation.”

Police nationwide will be strengthening night patrolling to prevent crime in response to the recent string of street violence. President Tsai Ing-wen recently issued an order for the government to make use of technology to elevate protective mechanisms for safety. The Tainan City Government, in cooperation with the technology industries, is launching a face mask detection system using artificial intelligence to detect people without masks on. The system will generate a public broadcast alert for people not wearing face masks and it will also report to the police.

Huang Wei-che, Tainan City Mayor: “Instead of approaching someone personally like before, this system can be used to prevent verbal disputes and physical fights. We need to be concerned for people's safety.”

Technology companies will also be sponsoring cloud services for the face mask detection system. There are 30 slots open for 30 shops in Tainan to apply for the use of the mask detection system within 3 months. Face mask regulations would not likely be lifted in the near future in Taiwan, and hopefully, the launch of the AI face mask detection system would improve safety in the neighborhood. 

 

 

 

 

男子進入連鎖賣場沒戴口罩,店員提醒,沒想到男子開始發火飆罵,甚至還要求到外面輸贏。事後店員不甘受辱,提告妨害自由加上妨害名譽,沒想到檢方偵查後,妨害自由部分不起訴,妨害名譽部分也聲請簡易判決,讓原告店員很不滿。

當事人楊先生表示:「判決結果也是說我沒有任何證據,我已經提供監視影像給他們看 ,但是還是以證據不足不起訴處分,那我是不是以後鑽法律漏洞就可以為所欲為。」

一般民眾認為:「就覺得那就可能貼一張文宣就好,就盡量不要去講,因為就怕這種事情再發生。」

台南地檢署襄閱主任檢察官林仲斌對此表示:「檢察官認為這個被告只是跟告訴人說,要叫告訴人到外面去講,這句話其實跟恐嚇罪的構成要件還是會有落差。」

對於台灣日前連續發生,賣場店員遭襲事件,警方近期也加強超商巡邏。總統蔡英文已指示運用科技提升保護機制,為此,台南市政府結合科技業者,推出AI口罩偵測系統,只要沒戴口罩就會啟動廣播系統宣導,並且連結警方,快速抵達現場勸導戴口罩。

台南市長黃偉哲表示:「有別於以前人跟人去勸他,現在因為有一些 怕避免一些人身上的一個危險,或是人口

科技業者更贊助雲端服務資源,限期3個月內開放30家在地商家申請。雖然國內疫情降溫,不過戴口罩的防疫政策短期內不會改變,未來搭配警示廣播或警政機關通報等應用,可以協助改善問題,兼顧防疫與超商店員的人身安全。
