Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Taiwanese are nice, until they break the law and you catch them doing it.

Love these guys for putting the dude in his place. However, if they were beetlenut chewing gangster types it could get ugly.

They were kinda mean to him. They should have just ignored him and walked off, instead they are blatantly insulting him in front of everyone else.

A beetlenut chewing gangster could care less about camera filming.

Yeah they were not very nice, granted but they did tell the guy he should continue walking, which he refused to do.

I think the guy may have been the one dropped off by the car. Finally it appears his daughter said "pa lets go".

I am really curious if the "I hate that guy so damn much that I want to punch him in the face" impression changes when I can hear whats going on...

Wow, stupidity is definitely a widely available commodity. On both sides, in this case.

First, AFAIK, not only can you film people breaking the law, you are encouraged to by a program for reporting lawbreakers of various types to the government. Don't know exactly which offenses are or are not covered, but seems there can't be any blanket ban on it, or the program wouldn't exist.

Second, those 2 foreigners are, well, I will keep my opinion to myself. As they have provided this Taiwanese guy, who displays some pretty good English, evidence for a defamation lawsuit. Asking him about drug use, telling him he is crazy, calling him "the village idiot", etc. In any ROC court, should be a slam-dunk. Half-tempted to download it myself and reupload so they can't take it down. Probably be on the news tonight, slow news weeks lately now that Makiyo is over. :popcorn:

Third, have to give the local guy points for self-restraint, no insulting comments and a lot of patience displayed dealing with some foreigners who really represent all that is best :roll: about expats here in Taiwan.

The Taiwanese guy is an a**hole. The car clearly made an infraction and anyone can film an infraction and report that to the police for a nice sum of buxiban hourly pay. Perhaps the tw dude should ask the police to confiscate all the car cams in the 'wan since they can't be filming any drivers along with their car/moped licenses :loco:

BTW, "犯罪" is actually an incorrect expression of what actually took place. 犯罪 is actually "committing a crime" which the driver clearly did not do (an infraction is NOT a crime but merely a traffic violation). He should have said 違規 instead.

ok... now with sound and as I expected I want to shut the guy up even more. The Taiwanese guy is annoying in a way but the western guy is intolerable... :fume:

Under the law you can film / photograph anyone or anything in public, infraction or no infraction. What you can't do however is publicly identify people without their permission, which the closeup of the license plate arguably does. If it is submitted to the police / govt as evidence of an infraction it's ok, but publicly uploading it to YouTube is technically a violation of the law in Taiwan. If the license plate closeup were edited out, then it'd be fine to display publicly.

You can film or photograph anyone here in a public place.
Foreign guys could have had a better attitude though. They weren't nice at all.

Infraction, yes.

But crime? Absolutely not. You need to upload it for information on the whereabouts of this person committing the crime and his/her license plate will be the clue.

When someone commits a crime, his/her identity is now open to scrutiny.
