Banciao District Prosecutors Office’s investigation into the Sean Lien Shooting Incident is on-going. After administering two lie-detector tests to the gunman Lin Cheng-wei and questioning relevant witnesses, the prosecutors concluded that Lin was telling the truth when he stated that he had shot Sean Lian because of mistaken identity and that his intended target had been Chen Hung-yuan, the KMT Xinbei City Council candidate for whom Sean Lien had been stumping.Of course, this won't end the tiresome conspiracy theory speculation. It won't stop the local and international media from creating drama where there isn't any. And it still won't get the public up in arms about gangsters in politics. Or get gangsterism mentioned in the big international press.
The prosecutors said that with the exception of when he replied to questions about how he acquired the handgun, the lie-detector readings had been normal, indicating that he was answering the prosecutors’ questions honestly, including his claims that he had been motivated by financial disputes with the Chen Hung-yuan family.
Asked why Lin had pulled off an execution-style hit, the prosecutors revealed that some people were inherently prone to large mood swings and at the time of the shooting, Lin must have been out of control.
Love the "mood swings." It permits the eye to be turned away from what's going on. "Look man, it's just too many Twinkies. Move along folks, no gangland conflicts to see here."
