I watched min shi show president Ma arriving at the hospital...I don't think they were ignoring it at all...

I was watching the great exchange between the reporters and the alleged perpetrartor on a "green" channel:


Rep: Did you do it because of his father?
Manunder a coat supposedly replies: No, it was a mistake.
Rep: So, did you hit the wrong guy?
Man : Yes, I was not aiming for him.
Rep:So, you made a mistake?
Man:Yes.
Rep: are you sorry?
Man: Yes.

*sigh*
Man: yes.

Yep, same "impromptu press conference", so to speak. Lien Chan's interview was also broadcasted like that, same on all channels. His wife looked ddistraught.

The only difference was one clip showing how premonitory Lien Jr. speech had been, talking about how he was very sick and got an oparation but thanked Hau's support almost as a member of his family -or something along those lines.

Latest I've heard is that Lien Chan's son is talking and says that (1) the "shooter" engaged him verbally before shooting him and that (2) he was the intended target.

It seemed like a suicide mission to me. :loco:

What's even more strange is that the cops apparently found several dozens of bullets on his person. :ohreally:

What was the shooter's exit strategy? none that I can think of, unless he was planning to fire into the crowd as well. :ponder:

Well I didn't imagine the individual was going to be of at least average intelligence.

his assasination attempt was doomed from the beginning because he picked the wrong caliber... 9mm is just wrong for what he had in mind... major fail. :)

Sean Lien is a big man (tall and well built). It is pretty hard to mistake him for somebody else.

I don't want to fuel any conspiracy theories, but I think it is most likely that he was the shooter's intended target.

The photo you posted above shows those guys wearing "Clean Taipei" T-shirts.
Is the word "Clean" being used as a verb or adjective? :roflmao:

back to the "assasination" attempt.... :) I am amazed at the skills of Taiwanes surgeons. It's reported that Lien Chan, Jr. is
already talking, eating and taking visitors. Not something that I would have expected so soon after being shot in the fact. :ponder:
