Police, protesters exchange charges of violence in Executive Yuan incident (2014/03/27)

Clashes between police and protesters at the Executive Yuan early Monday morning have led the two sides to blame each other for the confrontation. Supporters of the protesters have accused the police of using excessive force while the government has defended the police, saying it was the students who resisted police efforts to evict them from the government compound. 

When the clashes erupted early Monday morning, people used their mobile phones and cameras to record the actions taken by the police.

The DPP has issued an appeal for video evidence of police brutality. In the first group of photos collected, one shows a person who suffered a broken tooth and another with a swollen eye. One police officer is also seen waving a baton at a protester. 

Lin Chun-hsien
DPP Spokesman
If this isn’t violence, then what is? Premier Jiang Yi-huah, is this what you describe as patting them on the shoulder and getting them to leave? That’s ridiculous.

The government held a press conference to reject the charges. Cabinet spokesman Sun Lih-chyun said it was the protesters who attacked first.

Cabinet Spokesman
When they say it was the police who used violence to evict them or used force against defenseless students engaged in a sit-in, we actually saw that not all of the people were sitting there peacefully. 

Sun released photos showing protesters throwing water bottles and beverages at police. In one case, a female police officer was attacked by covering her head with a blanket. There was also a video showing police calmly trying to persuade students to leave before taking action.

Cabinet Spokesman
There are some things we didn’t do. We don’t want to be smeared.

With each side blaming the other, the Legislature set up a panel on Thursday to try to get at the truth.

互控施暴力

政院流血衝突後,當晚警方作為,引發執法過當兩派論戰。民進黨發起影音事證蒐集行動,揚言追究暴力員警的刑責。行政院不甘示弱,也拿出蒐證影帶,開記者會澄清,員警數次柔性勸離,民眾不為所動,驅離行動展開後,更有人動手襲擊員警。事情演變至今,形成警民互控暴力的局面。

政院衝突那一夜,民眾手邊的手機、相機,也跟著錄下員警執勤狀況。

民進黨發起影音事證蒐集行動,第一波募集到的照片裡,有人受傷被打斷牙齒,有人眼睛紅腫,還有員警咬牙猙獰,對著民眾揮舞警棍的模樣。

[[民進黨發言人 林俊憲]]
“這不叫暴力,什麼叫暴力,江宜樺院長,這就是你說的,拍拍肩膀,把他們抬走而已嗎,睜眼說瞎話”

行政院大動作開記者會駁斥,發言人孫立群,反控民眾也有動手。

[[行政院發言人 孫立群]]
“說員警是採用暴力的驅離,用武力去對付,手無寸鐵的靜坐學生,其實我們也看到了,並不是所有人都在那邊靜坐”

孫立群拿出民眾朝員警扔水瓶、飲料,還有學生朝女警頭上蓋棉被攻擊的照片,還有驅離行動前,員警柔性勸導的片段畫面。

[[行政人發言人 孫立群]]
“有些事情我們沒有做的,我們不希望被抹黑”

雙方各說各話,立法院內政委員會今天成立真相調閱小組,要替民眾還原真相。
