Police in Chiang Mai took a 33 year old red song thaew driver on a re-enactment yesterday after he was arrested for stealing from a 75 year old Japanese female tourist at knife point.
 
TV news reported that the case was serious for having a detrimental effect on tourism especially as the Japanese were "quality tourists".
 
Sakon Parangsee, 33, had borrowed his father's song thaew to pick up the tourist at the Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai then had taken her to an isolated section of road.
 
There he produced a knife and robbed her of 200,000 yen, a camera, credit card and a little over 1,000 baht. Then he ordered her out of the vehicle and drove off with the loot.
 
She reported to police and he was soon arrested thanks to CCTV.
 
He apologized saying he needed money to pay off a debt. 
 
A re-enactment of the crime took place yesterday for the cameras in which the suspect was completely visible.

Always amazed that they bother with these reenactments. If the guys going to reenact it, then he is already saying he's guilty. How else can you reenact something if you hadn't done it? OK well I remember the B2 on Koh Tao directed how to reenact the crime.

Regardless, if you have a confession why waste time with a big troupe of cops and media, blocking traffic and so on. The only reasons I can see is that the people demand this type of theater, or the cops get off on acting like they care about crime.

The case is serious because scum that take advantage of vulnerable people need to be put away.  It would be no less serious if he stole the money from some an old Thai woman.

He has said sorry. 

Surely this is enough or does he need to prop it up with a few wais?

  So we have the entire police shop at the scene for re enactment sorry selfies. The only worries they have is damage to tourism and a quality tourist! Tells you a lot about their ethics and values.

"TV news reported that the case was serious for having a detrimental effect on tourism especially as the Japanese were "quality tourists"."

 

So it was not serious because it was an assault on a 75 year old female tourist? It was serious because of its "detrimental effect on tourism"

 

So, if it wasn't in the press/media, it wouldn't have been serious, because nobody would have heard or read about it?

It’s just the mentality that doesn’t question why something is done or seek advancement. The same mentality that needs childish cartoon noises in poorly acted hammy soaps,low brow comedy shows based exclusively on slap stick, sticking comically large dustbin size exhausts  on even haulage vehicles, imagining the daft noise makes them look cool. You just have to understand that they’re not the sharpest tools in the box. 

Some may accuse me of acting in a superior manner,or snobbishness..or even worse and I’ll accept that,but the underlying issue responsible is the failing education system which has far more damaging implications for the country's future.

You just do not understand so I will explain it all to you in three simple words.

What happens in Thaniya Plaza stays in Thaniya Plaza, I guess.

Can anyone explain the reason for these 're-enactments'.  As has been said, they are re-enacted with the perpetrator centre stage.  In the west a re-enactment of a crime is usually to jog people's memories and aid in finding the culprit.  A valid reason but why do they do it here.
