United Daily (聯合報, 2024-2-24): Taiwan police repeatedly treated Taiwanese people by violence or brutality just like taking Taiwan back to  the medieval century, their violations of human rights and proportionality, similar to that in Chinese fishermen deaths event, were done without video recording.
For example, three policemen in PinTong (
屏東) tortured a person suspected of stealing by batons, and soon resulted in a death event.  Another case in TaoYuan (桃園), a teenager passing by police station was forcefully dragged into investigation room and was tortured by stun gun, etc, for more than one hour.  
Tsai Ing-wen in 70th anniversary of International Asso. Judges meeting stated that the pursuit of human rights is never ending, Taiwan is working tirelessly to achieve the highest international standards of judicial independence and human rights protections. However, to say a beautiful slogan is one thing to do is another.  brief udn.com/news/story/11091/7790040?from=udn-catehotnews_ch2

 

United Daily (聯合報, 2024-1-19): The police promotion relies on public relations capabilities (to bury some negative news, or even murder cases) rather than case-handling expertise, which probably results in the public do not feel Taiwan a place with good social security.當執法單位把壓負面新聞的公關視為重要能力,當執法機關的人事調整看公關能力、而不看偵辦案件等專業能力,或許正是為何政府一再以各種數據強調如今治安多好,民眾感覺卻是為何到處槍響...。如果連發生命案,都可以透過公關能力壓住不讓訊息外露,警方提出的數據中,又還有多少被隱藏的密碼?  

United Daily (聯合報, 2024-2-4): Taiwan's Police are physically and mentally exhausted due to high performance pressure. In the past ten years,  five police officers,  in average, committed suicide every year Performance appraisal should pays equal attention to both quantity and quality indicators.  udn.com/news/story/7339/7753517?from=udn_ch2cate6643sub7339_pulldownmenu_v2

United Daily  (聯合報), 2023-11-18:  The very serious "abnormal" relationship between the police and the prosecution was exposed recently.  The systems of judiciary, prosecution and police are rotten from the rootsudn.com/news/story/7338/7582230?from=udn_ch2cate6643sub7338_pulldownmenu_v2

United Daily  (聯合報),  2023-12-3: Almost all major criminal cases in recent years have shown that politicians are involved.   Japan's law against YAKUZA ("暴力团对策法") won't work in Taiwan unless the people in power have a high degree of determination to fight against mafia gangsters/gangs.
 
The relationship between the "clean syndicates" and mafia in Taiwan is complicated.  The former have long relied on gangsters to contribute huge financial flows.  Simply establishing a law similar to Japan's "暴力团对策法" cannot solve the fundamental problem
