Headline aside, The Taipei Times has a pretty measured editorial today on the prospect of Chinese police coming here, which amounts to, "Yes, sometimes allies exchange police forces when their interests are closely aligned and when the level of trust is very high, but those conditions are not met in this case and there's no compelling reasons to have any Chinese police or PLA personnel stationed here anyway."

Not just allies, both the UK and the US have exchanged liaison postings with the Chinese police, and military attaches are part of diplomatic exchanges between all major states.

Really, unless there is a proposal to give PRC police powers in Taiwan I cannot see a great reason to fuss about this.
