Taiwanese are deranged. Bullying a much poorer country is proclaimed by them as "toughening up"? They are really silly.

The Taiwanese vessel violated Philippine's territorial waters, together with another fishing boat, and it tried to ram the PCG ship.

The shooting was not meant to kill but to disable the fishing vessel.

According to the Manila Times:

OK, you steal their fish (and they are a poor country as it is), you try to ram their coast guard ship, and you still complain?
