I don’t get this AFP article on the Taipeitimes.

When I read it, it sounds like that 25 year old lady was definitely disrepectful and made this mild infraction much worse after she broke the law, had a big attitude, tried to escape and slapped the police in the face. What does she expect? I have no sympathy for her and her disgusting attitude appears to expect the police to speak English in Japan. She is is living in Japan, she should learn Japanese or at least feel sorry for the fact that she doesn’t speak the language. If it was a Japanese guy in the same situation in her home country of New Zealand, I am sure they would have acted in a similar manner.
I know in the USA, if you don’t speak English the cops already have an attitude themselves, then if you give them attitude you are in big trouble. After this if you try to run away and when they try to stop you, you smack them twice in the face, you are in for some big trouble. Hell, if you were a guy and you did that, they might even try to sneak in a few kidney punches when no one was looking. She should be immediately deported and never allowed in Japan again.
