I can't find a link or reference in the sensationalist Taiwanese "Foul Laowai" media.

Please expand and elucidate, sandman. :bow:

You wouldn't want to be him, poor bloke. Hopefully he'll get a free deportation and get help.

Yeah, honestly, it sounds like he has serious mental health problems (unless he's just faking it). You'd think somebody would have spotted it earlier.

Incidentally, I love the photo attribution. Do organised crime bosses in Tianmu have their own Facebook page on which they document their latest criminal activities, or is it simply a facebook page about the existence of gangs in Tianmu? I'm not on facebook so I can't check.

Well alrighty then.

It's a closed group. You can't see anything unless you join the group. I'm not going to join the group.

Check out the menu he's written on the wall. I assume it's a menu.

EDIT: Apologies. I meant to post this in the Taiwan tattoo guy thread. I'll leave it here, anyway. Where do these people come from?

Anyone who can make a living selling raw onions is good to go in my book. That takes serious mettle!

Who doesn't like a bit of raw onion with a beer?

He's the guy who petrol bombed a Family Mart over a burger dispute.
