北市殺童案 謝長廷:結構性問題需要家庭、社會與醫療體系共同合作. Structural Problems Need Collaboration between Families, Society and Healthcare System

前行政院長、影子政府召集人謝長廷今(29)日主持廣播節目「有影上大聲—長仔限時批」時,針對昨(28)日北市發生隨機殺童案表示,結構性問題必須透過家庭、社會與醫療體系共同合作,才能保障大眾安全,避免相同案件再度發生。

謝長廷指出,有輿論表示兇嫌曾有吸毒前科、精神異常。他強調,不管如何,此案都需要社會共同面對和處理。謝長廷說,精神障礙並不是罪,但若可能危害他人生命財產安全、影響他人權利,就必須以隔離或強制治療的手段來處理,如同從前對待SARS一般,以免傷及無辜,造成不可挽回的傷害。

謝長廷表示,吸毒與精神疾病皆為社會的結構性問題,也需要從醫療、社會、學校、家庭多方面長期的追蹤輔導,但這也需要家庭與社會來共同合作,因為家人最清楚病患從前發生的行為。

而針對毒品問題,謝長廷也以擔任行政院長的經驗提出呼籲,毒癮的治療是長期抗戰,國外曾針對毒癮研發相關藥品,目前台灣應尚未引進。他表示,雖然特效藥價格昂貴,但是為了社會安定,台灣仍應該考慮與國外合作,正視毒癮的問題。此外目前勒戒設施嚴重不足,也是ㄧ大隱憂。

另一方面,受害女童母親在事後於臉書發出聲明。謝長廷表示,王姓女士並沒有失去冷靜,為了社會安定提出的聲明,讓人相當感動,值得我們尊敬。而針對死刑存廢的討論,謝長廷認為,當下社會無法冷靜探討問題,應像王女士所說的一樣,多多擁抱身邊親愛的家人。

謝長廷也在節目中提及,民進黨主席蔡英文在今日發表的公開信,她向被害者母親承諾,會將社會安全網上的破洞補滿,讓每一個邊緣人,都可以被這張網接住,接受公平的教育、擁有穩定的工作、過著正常的生活,並在反毒、兒少安全、警力、心理健康和精神醫療這些面向上加倍努力。

During his radio programme on 29th March, Former Premier, Frank Hsieh, commented on the random child killing that occured the day before, stating that such structural problems have to be prevented through the collaboration between families, the society, and the healthcare system.

As the press indicated drug misuse and mental health history in the suspect, Hsieh pointed out that this would still be something the society as a whole needs to face and deal with together. Mental health difficulties are not crime but if [certain symptoms] put others at risk, then separation [into a health facility] or mandatory treatment should be considered, in the same way as treating SARS, in order to prevent irredeemable harm to the innocent individuals.

Frank Hsieh stated that drug misuse and mental illness are both structural problems for a society. There should be long-term follow up and support from healthcare, social work and education systems. Family also needs to be involved because family members may have the greatest knowledge of someone’s prior history and behaviour.

In terms of illicit substances, Hsieh shared his experience during his premiership and called for more long-term measures, as Taiwan has not introduced the most effective evidence-based treatment from abroad. Although the treatment is costly, for societal peace and stability, Taiwan should face the problem of drug addictions and consider collaboration with overseas organisations. At the moment, there is still a serious lack of specialist rehabilitation facilities, which is another worry.

After the incident, the child’s mother posted her announcements on Facebook. Hsieh stated that Ms Wang has remain calm and made announcements for societal peace, which is very moving and deserves a lot of respect. In terms of capital punishment, Hsieh believes that the society is not calm enough to discuss this issue and should do what Ms Wang suggested: give family and those close and dear to us hugs.

Hsieh also mentioned the open letter written by the DPP chairperson, Tsai Ing-wen. Tsai promised the victim’s mother that she will fill all the holes and gaps in the safety net in our society and enable those who are in the margin to be caught by this net, receiving fair education and opportunities for stable employment and a normal life. She also promised to make more effort in fighting drugs, child and adolescent safety, policing, psychological wellbeing and mental health care.
