We all know that too but what can we do? We can't do anything but put pressure on the pub to improve security. Maybe persuade the victims to sue? I think that you'll see them around in Taipei.If they don't press charges, they will be partly responsible for the next attack on whomever.
Anyways the foreigners can still press charges against the assailants within six months(according to Taiwan law). So they can still change their mind anytime within the following six months.
The gangster that I was talking to said that the one of the foreigners had hit his friend and that's what his friend told him. That's when they decided to jumped the foreigners and beat them.
But according to what I saw and what the foreigners told me.......the local gangsters were just looking for a fight.
The dance floor is pretty crowded and getting bumped by the person beside(anywhere) you is unavoidable. I think that this could've triggered this vicious violence. Local gangster can take a "bump" and say that you "hit" them. And rough you up. But the violence that I saw at Pig&Whistle was very vicious.
It's the first time that I've seen so much blood everywhere. I had some on my shoes and face. I guess that I got some blood flying off the bat as he was batting the girls head.
I'll get some more answers from the gangster when I see him again and keep my ears open to rumors circulating around town.
I'll ask the manager, Scott, whether the gangster's claim as being the bouncer at the pub is true or not. Because if it is true..... Pig&Whistle beat their own customers.
These foreigners came down from Taipei to have a good time in Hsinchu. From what I've seen these foreigners are nice people and not like the ones that are obnoxiously rude and shove people around. They said that they can forgive their assailants. Well....I don't have that much forgiveness and love in my heart for any vicious criminal that would do such a thing.
It's sad to see nice people get hurt.
I guess their week is pretty much spoiled. And they'll always have those scars to remind them of the GOOD times in Taiwan.
