Mafia?  Sounds like typical Thai media xenaphobia towards foreigners. If the rebels or bandidos had come calling to serve out punishment i doubt if he would of walked out, albeit groggily.

He's pissed off some local  soi  bar  farangs  & Thais.

Maybe not paid tea money, sadly one reason I would not open a bar or other buissness in the major tourist area's.

BiB just find a way to shut you down if you don't pay.

Sounds like he has a history with someone.

Lot of foreigners doing whatever they want in this town under the delusion of "protection" from some Thai.

Lk metro is still controlled by a certain type of foreigner, police cleared it out a few years ago after a friend of mine , who had a business in Lk metro had a fall out with another business owner. My friend (Australian) was shopping at Thepisit market and as he was on his way back to his car , was approached by a group of Thai guys who bundled him into the rear of a car . However as the car slowed and turned into Sukumvit he threw himself from the Car onto the road and escaped . A week later after further problems he flew back to Australia with his family and left his business.

Hope to see a photo of this particular 'mafia' type.

Safe bet he will look nothing like anyone on The Godfather.

 

Much too warm for suits and ties?

Interesting to see how this develops. Maybe he was pissed and got into a silly argument with someone who don't take kindly to such things. Maybe it's more. Ah, the pond life of Pattaya!

 

Btw: what happened in the case of the American killer who killed the Aussie recently? Or the guy having trouble with Aussie bikers up North? Not seen any reports for sometime.

So with the polluted sea and the night life happenings everything is just fine and dandy.

 

Polluted sea had a BIG effect here. Clearly somebody had been out swimming. But there could be more--much more.

 

In all news threads reporting any negative incident, it's best to go ahead and get it ALL out there ASAP to avoid piecemeal repetitions that leave out most of the good stuff. Here ya go:

Whenever a crime is committed in my Thai locale I am told that some "mafia" have been at work.

 

I think it's just easier for them to say than "criminal" and is a convenient "catch all".

Jesus, a guy gets a <deleted> punch in the <deleted> face and drops <deleted>.
Thai news media  <deleted> jumps on it <deleted> with 'mafia' <deleted> suggestions.
They would have <deleted> shot him - if that would be the <deleted> case... <deleted>

'mafia'

were they Italians then? 

Thais always like to exaggerate. Small-time hoodlums (now there's a word you don't see used much these days) are mafia, any model is a supermodel, any pop singer is a superstar. In their own mind they are. Better than acknowledging the reality of being a small fish in a small pond.

And it's not an exclusive Thai trait by any stretch. 

All over the world it seems that something out of the ordinary is now ' surreal' and instead of simply saying yes people now feel the need to say ' absolutely '.

 

No idea what they will say when confronted with something absolutely surreal in the real sense.  Fall back on gobsmacked I suppose.
