From my experience the Thai Police could be more efficient and productive by following up on their meager successes. Lower Sukhumvit Road, especially the odd number sois between 1 and Asoke are crawling with foreigners that can be observed to be dealing drugs, human trafficking and con men ready to take any victims money. The police should do more video surveillance, immigration checks on the loiterers and everyone detained automatically has their residence searched for evidence of criminal activity and associate criminals.
Stop the raids for the press that are embarrassing the police in general and do the work. In no reality in this universe are these raids a deterrent to the criminals involved.

By foreigners could you explain what you mean.

Is it the colour.?

The language?

I don't know... I actually have to disagree here - not on the need to keep drug dealers off the streets (especially foreign dealers), but I feel like they have been mostly wiped up. Have you been to Lower Sukhumvit in the last few weeks? I mean, a month and a half ago it was crawling with Africans openly dealing as well as likely trafficked Africans females involved in prostitution, but the last 2 times I've walked down lately I don't even think I saw a single African. 

 

And, combined with Craigslist and Backpage closing down, they have really been shut down.

Deporting criminals and illegal workers ? One of the apprehended is a Swiss who overstayed and considering how financially well off the Swiss are, one may have big doubts that the Swiss who was arrested for a visa issue was an illegal worker.

 

Obviously a careless foolish or perhaps stupid person, who overstayed the 30 days on the Visa Exempt entry.

 

About time the western media really started to warn it's citizens to avoid Thailand for their holidays as the xenophobia is getting as bad as the white supremacists in the west.

That would explain the appearance of the Swiss and Russian do you think

Yup, odd as it may seem, people who don't have a visa, people who are working illegally, they are criminals, did I strike a nerve!

Yawn :coffee1:

Maybe they can go do some real police work one day,  maybe save a few lives in the process.

Nah. to hard that one, low hanging fruit is so easy.
