[quote=“STOP_Ma”][quote=“the bear”]can someone give a brief summary (unbiased) of what this bullshit is all about?
I can’t be bothered wading through the pages of twaddle on it…[/quote]
A Forumosa member, named Betelnut, claimed to be an objective film student from America who travelled to Taiwan to make a documentary of the 3.19 incident. Throughout his thread he bragged about having evidence and testimony from “experts” and witnesses – proof that CSB had staged his own shooting. He was to launch his “revealing” documentary film today.
Last week he went public with Su Ying-kuei. They held a news conference demanding another “truth committee” because of new found “evidence” that they had discovered. This was immediately after the Chen family went public, telling reporters that they were coerced into providing testimony to the police (stating that the husband was the shooter). This “new evidence” was TVBS video footage of the yellow jacket man. They compared it with the video that the police provided and concluded that the video was taken a day before the shooting occurred.
In response to this allegation, the police provided further video completely destroying their case.
In Saturday’s Taipei Times editorial, it was revealed that “Jason” Betelnut (Jason being his chosen pseudoname at the press conference) was not simply an objective American film student who was working as an English teacher. It turns out, he is connected to an executive at TVBS in Hong Kong. It was also revealed that he had his own office in TVBS Taiwan and was using whatever resources they could provide him with.[/quote]
I think I might be speaking for at least a few other Forumosans when I ask: so what?
