Seems he was drugged by his father who had already shopped around to find a hospital that would admit him ...

Su told a press conference yesterday that on April 29 he had had breakfast with his parents at a coffee shop. He had got up to use the lavatory, and on his return noticed some white powder on the rim of his coffee cup but, thinking nothing of it, drank his coffee. Shortly after he fell into a torpor and was taken to Shin Kong Hospital.

Su claimed that on his way to the hospital, even though he was feeling faint, he heard a doctor telling him: "Your father put drugs in your coffee but it is all for your own good."

The hospital then locked him up in a psychiatric ward claiming he was suffering from bipolar disorder and hallucinations, without engaging in a proper diagnosis, the student said .

And further down . . .

Su, who has been plagued with melancholia for more than a year, noted that after his parents found out he was gay in April, they asked Taipei Municipal Wan Fang Hospital to force him to take undergo treatment, a day after he had seen a doctor in the hospital for his melancholia.

Unfortunately, presenting with a complaint can tip the edge.

Sad, especially in 2006.

Yes, true. I know several gay locals, and I was advised not to tell anyone for fear that the news would cycle back to their parents.

I also read in TT that the father that the boy suing his family for being locked up is even further evidence of his 'craziness' :lol:

I am acquainted with the guy involved - he's a friend of a friend... This story is kind of bizarre and makes me pause. It certainly does help explain where he went for a few months. I have a lot of sympathy for him...

I'm amazed that he keeps getting in the Apple Daily, TT, etc - this is at least the second time. It's a sad commentary on his family. Although it's a lot better than the Taoyuan woman who stabbed her son in the stomach (he died) because he was 5 minutes late from work (China Post, earlier this week)...
