[Story] Tsao Yi-chi:Hard Labor Location: Siao Liuciou Training Detachment

Tsao Yi-chi and his cousin, the poet Tsao Kai, both were apprehended in the same case. Having served out his full sentence at the sixth platoon, Second Squadron at the Green Island New Life Correction Center, Tsao was not given a passing grade in his final evaluation, whereupon he was transferred to the labor center on Siao Liuciou Island. There he spent about a year and a half. Upon returning home, his spirits were sometimes high, sometimes low, so he was sent to a private mental hospital for long-term treatment. His family exhausted their resources on this. Ten-odd years after returning home, he passed away in his prime.
