Am I the only one to challenge his statement: "Such measures helped in the capture of serious criminals, he added." Sir-show me the cases where this procedure has resulted in the capture of criminals. When the government enacts a policy that can impinge on personal freedom, it is my opinion, that the burden of proof falls on the government to show why it is necessary. Note- As expressed by the English jurist William Blackstone in his seminal work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, published in the 1760s- "It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer." In Thailand, evidently, shoot first, ask questions later. Not surprising in this land of uncritical thinking, no newspaper reporter would dare ask the government to prove their justification. They should all go back and study Investigational Journalism 101.
