    Greetings from Taiwan

    I am originally from California but have lived the past 14 years in Taiwan. Prior to leaving California I worked as a deputy district attorney in Imperial County. Since moving here to Taiwan, I have taught law school at Soo Chow School of Law and more recently have worked as a consultant for Taiwan’s Ministry of Justice.

    I will be returning to California sometime over the next year or so and wanted to get back into California law enforcement working as a prosecutor. I look forward to meeting the folks here.

    Take care,
    Brian Kennedy

    Welcome to the forum.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Thank you all very much for the great welcome. I appreciate that and look forward to talking with the folks here.

    If you ever wondered what Taiwanese police look like, here is a photo of what we might call the Celestial Cops of Taiwan. What these guys actually are, are temple parade performers. They are called the 8 Generals, although the Chinese phrase is actually closer to 8 Judicial Police. Whenever they are going to have a temple parade here in Taiwan these 8 Judicial Police will wall the beat around the neighborhood to make sure that no demons, ghosts, evil spirits or other gang bangers will interfere with the temple procession.

    To mark their authority they have their badges (the wooden fans are actually their symbols of judicial authority—i..e their badge). And the guy in front, in his left hand, he has his wooden handcuffs. You can see the chain draped around his knee.

    And they all got the fangs---command presence you know. The kid, without the wild face paint, is actually the watch commander. He is supposed to represent the god whom the 8 Judicial Police work for. Nobody has ever given me an explanation for why in all these temple parades that role is played by a kid. In any event I thought the photo might be of some amusement.



    Take care
    Brian
