English translation:

Last week, the man surnamed Lin of Xinbei City, Taiwan, beat his 10-year-old son and wife angrily, because the meatballs his son bought were not spicy. Exposure caused public outrage. A large number of people gathered at the man's house to fry a pot of chillis, and even went to teach him, forcing Lin to come forward to apologize.

At present, the boy’s mother has filed a lawsuit against her husband, and the police’s emergency protection order has also been applied for, and the mother and child are safe. On the afternoon of the 14th, the domestic violence man also went to the police station to apologize publicly.

Lin’s wife went to the Xinbei District on Wednesday to ask about divorce, and to seek custody and support for the child. When she was interviewed, she issued a statement crying, “I hope that through our appearance, the justice will be addressed, and all who encounters such bitter experience can also believe in justice, willing to stand up bravely." "I hope that I can walk out of our own lives, for the sake of my children and our future."

In addition, Lin’s wife also issued a statement on the 16th: “I am not a perfect mother. Everyone can inspect me, but now I only want to protect my children.” She also said that she has made many mistakes in the past 12 years, being wrong at recognizing people unclearly, being wrong at still wanting to gamble once again on the so-called complete family. But now she woke up and didn't want to gamble anymore, and she only wanted to grow up with her son in a safe environment. She was surprised at the development of this incident, and she hoped that the harm that this incident had done to her kid stops at this point, and also hoped that this case will let the society address the plight of domestic violence victims.
