Police just taking "defensive measures" says chief after suspect kicked off motorcycle

The chief of police in Hat Yai explained away the incident where a chasing policeman on a motorcycle kicked out causing a fleeing rider to crash to the tarmac.

 

Chief Kittichai Sangkhathaworn said on a police Facebook page that the two cops on the police bike were just taking defensive measures to avoid coming off themselves.

 

Defending his men he said it was not a deliberate attempt to bring down the suspect.

 

Earlier in the day comment was rife online as Thais said that the cops had kicked out. Daily News concurred with this assessment.

 

Chief Kittichai said that the officers involved - Manot Otthon and Wisanu Jamnongnoi - had set up a legal roadblock and Ratanaphon, 21, had failed to stop when requested.

 

A 30 minute chase ensued in which Ratanaphon sideswiped a Ford.

 

He said that outside the Isuzu dealership on Petchkasem Road Manot stuck out a boot, as the suspect weaved in front, in an effort to stay upright.

 

Ratanaphon came off and was treated at the scene by medics though he was only slightly injured.

 

Daily News reported that Ratanaphon settled with the Ford driver over compensation and was not going to take the matter concerning the cops any further.

 

No other charges were reported in respect of him not stopping for officers at the roadblock.

No it wasn't!

 

You should see what the motocy's do in BKK when the police wants to stop them, they just do anything except stopping.

 

This guy might have been a bankrobber, murderer on the run or whatever....stop means stop, how hard can that be?

it seems to me the cop took down the guy in the least harmful way possible.  they could have shot him , or run him down with a car or pickup truck.   this character could easily have killed somebody or caused a terrible accident.

I think it was the best way to stop them... Would it have been better to shoot at the tires.....

Maybe now people think think twice, if they consider to run from the police.

What is the lesser of 2 evil's with someone who runs from a police stop?

 

1) shot them with a gun, wound or kill them...( or other people in the area )

Or

2) take them to  the ground any way you can....

 

Me, I'll take number 2.

I don't see anything wrong with this! the ass hole was running from the police, in the U.S. if a car was speeding away from a crime,the police could and have used the "Pit" maneuver!

The debate as to whether this was the correct way to stop the chase is one thing, but I think it is blatant to everyone who has seen it, that it was deliberate. But rather than come out and say so, the Hat Yai Chief tries to tell us a bunch of very unbelievable lies. Why? Many of us have seen this happen before, so we all know it is a fairly routine practice, despicable as it is.

Yes it was.  All this guy is guilty of is running a road block.  He could be seriously hurt due to this.  There are other ways to deal with runners like this.  Sadly, they take the easy way out here.

 

A good lawsuit with a huge fine will stop this.  Police think they are above the law here.  And most times, they are. :sad:

Bravo, Bravo, and Bravo

 

We want more enforcement I for one in this video got it!  If it was me I would pull up and yank him by the collar.  It should have been done sooner, his actions could have hurt others since he was clearly evading arrest or just don't have a damn bit of respect for the law which is why Thais are upset about what was done.

The problem, what is the law?  He makes a financial deal to the Ford owners great. But he should have been arrested and charged, reckless driving, evading arrest, if he wants to press charges I say " bring it on " meantime you sit in jail while the book is thrown at you.

Sure, he ran a roadblock, maybe because he just murder someone, etc.. sure he could have gotten hurt, wish he did, but he could have hurt others by evading. He put himself in the position by evading for something to happen and I for one is glad it was him. Sure, as for the police, why apologize just explain why! end of story.

Corruption, sure we want more and these two guys did want they had to Bravo.

Agree or disagree, any one of us in the same position would would have pull over and stopped.

Whether this is the best way to stop a rider who is doing a runner is up for debate. What gets my goat is the police chief's comments, a brazen liar who expects his word to be believed against all evidence.

He should've stopped and paid his tea money like everyone else

All the police are  guilty of is a BS excuse. It would've been better to say nothing
