Your so called "coast guard" first denied killing Taiwanese fishermen, and then later admitted killing but claimed self defense??? Self defense from what? From an unarmed Taiwanese fishermen boat that was far away from you??? Bull shit. Cause you know the Taiwanese authority is a bunch of pussy, therefore it takes China's might to come get your sorry little ass. And also stop getting help from your sugar daddy States.

The taiwanese fisherman was probably spotted fishing in philippine territory and he attempted to flee and got shot.

From what I read in the news is that the Philippine Coast Guard spotted 4 fishing boats in Philippine Territory and it fired a warning shot then a Fishing Vessel reacted by trying to ram the Coast Guard Ship so it fired many shots at them in self defense until the engine of the Fishing Vessel was hit then it stopped.

from what ive read for the last how many years now the flips have spotted 100s of chinese fishing boats and not warned or fired on any of them.
in fact the chinese boats ran them the fcuk out any time they wanted to.

very soon i think you can look forward to having one of your coast guard vessels sunk and will have no recourse in the matter. now the chinese can say they were merely defending themselves.

you did yourselves no favors in killing this fisherman, but satisfying your own little wounded egos.

that's right, the Coast Guard should be equipped with RPG (rocket propelled grenade) so that it could anticipate Chinese boats' kamikaze attempts

Kudos to the Phil Coast Guard for starting to assert the country's tererritorial rights....Honor to those coast guard men...
You were just doing your mandated job and were on defensive side.

Something is called Exclusive economic zone (also called 200 mile fishing zone). The Taiwanese boat was fishing 170 nautical miles off the southern tip of Taiwan. Obviously, the Philippine government breaks the international law this time.

No matter how, Philippine government cannot kill any person. It is not called warning because there are 32 bullet holes on the Taiwanese boat.

Hey, "John Doe", if you love China so much, maybe you should stop living in the US and move back to China. It's so hilarious to see all these Chinese-Americans displaying their "nationalism" online when they don't even live in China.

That boat was trespassing in our territory, then it tried to ram our boat, and you expect us to apologize?

As for you "amc", a chink supposedly living in the Philippines, your logic is twisted and nonsensical like all chink logic. Since you call us "flips", I'll call you a chink too.

First, you admit that hundreds of chink fishing boats have been spotted trespassing in Philippine territory. And this somehow led you to the complete opposite conclusion - that because hundreds of chink ships trespassed in our territory before and we did not fire on them, we should not have fired on this one. I love your backwards chink logic. It's the other way around; we should have fired on every single one of the chink trespassers.

Not only are you not ashamed of your countrymen shamelessly trespassin, you're even proud of it, like a good chink. You are so proud of how they "ran them [the "flips"] the fcuk out any time they wanted to." Here's a tip: You chinks should learn to respect the territory of others. Oh but that'd probably be asking for too much from you.

He didn't just attempt to flee; he actually tried to ram our Coast Guard vessel. And according to the Chinese commenters here, we should have just done nothing and let him ram us.

This isn't the first time Chinese and Taiwanese "fishermen" have tried to ram other countries' Coast Guard vessels while trespassing in their territory. A Chinese ship tried to ram a Japanese Coast Guard vessel some years ago too, I recall.

During the Estrada Administration there was a lot of encounters between Philuppine Coast Guards and Chinese Vessels and some even had ship ramming incedents but shots were not fired.

I watch in the news that the Taiwanese vessel was trying to ram the Philippine Coast Guard in full speed that is why they shot it to disable it. If you noticed the Taiwanese vessel it has a protruding metal stucture in front of the hull which is designed for ramming things maybe small whales to knock it out but what if that hit the Philippine Coast Guard Ship?

Somehow your anti Filipino campaign and propaganda stings egos but that doesn't make your miserable lowlife any better because you are a Filipino and you have no choice like I do loser.

Ah yes they tried to ram the Philippine Coast Guard boat, as a result the Philippine Coast Guard sailors rammed their 50 caliber machinegun up their arses.

I have this Filipino friend and he met a Chinese guy in Disneyland Hong Kong and he told he Chinese guy that he is Cambodian and the Chinese guy kept on bashing and mocking Filipinos which made my friend really mad and then he invited the Chinese guy for a ride in Magic Mountain which is a dark coaster ride and when they were on the highest point he threw the Chinese guy out of the coaster car they were riding and he never knew what happened to the Chinese goy but he speculated that he is dead.

Remember the Chinese fishermen who wandered near Palau Islands in which a chink was killed? Read the following article from www.huffington Post.com

HAGATNA, Guam A Chinese fisherman was killed after Republic of Palau police officers fired at his boat, believed to fishing illegally off the Pacific island nation.

A Cessna carrying an American pilot and two Palau police officers that was dispatched to track a larger Chinese boat that was part of the operation has gone missing.

But the U.S. Coast Guard has been searching for the three since the pilot reported Sunday that they were running low on fuel and having navigational problems.

The plane was believed to have gone down near the republic's southernmost island of Peleliu, said Lt. j.g. Richard Russell, enforcement officer for Sector Guam. But since the plane's navigational equipment was failing, the pilot wasn't able to give an accurate report.

"Right now we're hoping we can find some kind of debris or clue about where this plane may have gone down," Russell said. "We're really digging into this as deeply as we can."

Rescuers have been poring over transcripts of the pilot's conversation with the airport and over weather reports to try and match his description of the cloud cover.

Palau is in the mid-Pacific Ocean, some 500 miles east of the Philippines.

Palau President Johnson Toribiong on his Facebook page identified the missing pilot as Frank Ohlinger and the officers as Earl Decherong and Willy Mays Towai.

"I ask for your prayers for the captain and these two fine young police officers," he wrote.

Joining in the search that has spanned more than 6,500 square nautical miles, is a mega-yacht owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who visited Guam about a week ago.

"The captain of `Octopus' has been in constant contact with Coast Guard officials through days of searching," said David Postman, spokesman for Allen's investment company, Vulcan.

"No one aimed directly at the man, so one of the bullets must have ricocheted off the engine and struck him in the thigh," he said, adding the fisherman bled to death before he could be taken to a hospital.

According to court documents, five fishermen have been charged with illegal fishing and other charges. Another 20 Chinese fishermen were rounded up after a "mother ship" was later found, Meriang said.

Compensation demanded for slain Chinese fisherman in Palau
English.news.cn 2012-04-17 09:31:04

KOROR, Palau, April 17 (Xinhua)- A spokesman for the family of Chinese fisherman killed by Palau police has demanded "proper and reasonable" compensation for the excessive use of police force.

Chuanzhong Lu, the cousin of Yong Lu, the slain Chinese national, said in a statement released on Tuesday, "My cousin should not have received death penalty though he might unlawfully entered Palau territorial sea for fishing."

Yong Lu was accidentally killed on March 31 after Palau police fired on his fishing vessel during a confrontation between Palau police and the Chinese fishermen.

The remaining five Chinese nationals on the vessel and 20 more on another ship have been detained by the Palau government for over two weeks without charge and should be released on Wednesday.

"I think the Palau Government has fully responsibility to my cousin's death, because when police are on duty, they are representatives of government," Chuanzhong Lu said.

Chuanzhong Lu challenged the cause of his cousin's death after Palau officials insisted that one bullet ricocheted off the engine and struck the fisherman in the thigh.

"It is obvious that there were two bullets, not just one, hit Yong Lu. Both bullets hit on the front, one in his right arm and the other in his right thigh," Chuanzhong Lu said.

"Until now, the Palau Government did not mention any word regarding the compensation. Moreover, the Palau Government refused to pay the expenses for conserving my cousin's body in the hospital. This is very difficult to understand," Chuanzhong Lu said.

"I felt great pain and deep sorrow after I saw my cousin's body. He was a good father, a good son and a good husband, but now the only left is a cold, dead body, and a broken family."

The dead fisherman is survived by a nine-year-old son and a three-year-old daughter.

Palau hasn't established foreign relations with China, so the Chinese embassy in Micronesia, which is in charge of issues concerning Palau, had immediately launched an emergency response mechanism in the wake of the incident. After days of intense diplomatic efforts, the release of the remaining fisherman was eventually secured.

In an earlier interview with Xinhua, Palau President Johnson Toribiong expressed his regret and conveyed personal condolences to the family of the slain Chinese fisherman. Toribiong said he hoped diplomacy and the judicial process would ensure a positive outcome.

While compensation and a thorough independent investigation of the circumstances surrounding Lu's death are not forthcoming, it is difficult to claim that the President's call for faith in Palau 's judicial process can be assured.
