Taipei, Jan. 26 (CNA) A man who drove a gravel truck into the Presidential Office in Taipei Saturday aired his grievances against society in a letter delivered to a local TV station. Chang Teh-cheng, the only one injured in the incident, said in his letter that he is willing to be sentenced to death if anyone was killed in the incident, or to serve a life sentence even no one was killed. The TV station said in a news report Sunday morning that it had turned Chang's letter over to police, which was sent by Chang before he drove his truck into the Presidential Office. The incident took place early Saturday while President Ma Ying-jeou was in Sao Tome and Principe on the first leg of his 8-day, 3-nation tour and the Presidential Office was close for weekend. According to local news reports, Chang, who was transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries after the incident, was angry following a court decision to sentence him to 40-day confinement after being convicted of committing an act of violence against a former wife.
