Not again! Jail threat to foreign graffiti artists at Chiang Mai cave

Not again! Jail threat to foreign graffiti artists at Chiang Mai cave

Chiang Mai authorities are furious that a cave has been ruined by graffiti from foreign tourists.

 

They have threatened to prosecute and seek jail terms for anyone who is caught. 

 

The latest damage comes to Thailand's nature after teens from Liverpool and Canada spray-painted a historic wall in the northern Thai city.

Chiang Mai News reported that foreign names were inscribed on a cave at the Mok Fa waterfall in the beautiful Doi Suthep - Pui national park. 

 

The park authorities message was clear and unequivocal to tourists - "Don't or you'll be jailed". 

 

Though they admitted that a lack of staff meant they would find it hard to find the miscreants.

 

Names such as "Tom", "Sian", "Louise" and "Sam" were clearly visible along with other scrawls. 

 

Last week the Liverpool man attempted to write the word "scouser" at the Tha Pae gate.

People who do this should be caught, and given the maximum sentence possible, then banned for life.

Dish out penalties such as apply in Singapore.

Use the RATTAN CANE on these Foreing Scum Bags and ensure it gets WORLD WIDE PUBLICITY to discourage similar activities by other “Morons.”

At least when I was a kid the worst we did was to steal some chalk from school and use it, perhaps because we knew it could be washed off!

Put CCTV on all such sites, all over the country.

 

The young teenate and post teenage brainless turds from the west (or even perhaps from Thailand) need close monitoring and appropriate severe punishment if caught, as that is the only language these generations can understand.

I can show you a number of places in Chiang Mai that are predominately tagged by Thais.  This is not a farang only issue although the media is framing this a exactly that.  But how often do we hear of a BIB manhunt for Thai graffiti artists in the media?  I can't think of any, but correct me if I'm off base.

If Thailand wished to be proactive, they would pass out a brochure listing all the stupid things that farangs and foreigners often do while visiting that will get them into trouble as well as spelling out the fines and jail times for each - and then have each passenger sign that they understand before they disembark their plane.

Nothing new under the sun...... This was done to a cave in Lascaux in France..... 20,000 years ago.

While I dont condone criminal damage of any description, It would be nice to see the punishment fit the crime. 10 years in prison is the maximum for this I believe, while murderers can often get much less. Plus foreigners do seem to get singled out for it, when there is a lot of it in Thai all over the place.

So, there are plenty of thieves and criminals and fraudsters walking free, and the concern is about some tourists writing names on a rock..ok.. the mind boggles.

Punishment should fit the crime, simple as that, make them pay to have it cleaned, fine them and move on. It's just some graffiti after all, nobody is hurt.

 

Such a big deal about such small things, the news is so tedious and so anti foreigner it is scary. There is graffiti by locals everywhere and I have never seen it hit the news, not ever. when do we ever see some real arrests for serious crime or arrests for the clamp down on corruption, or the solving of murders. Instead we see anti foreign sentiment coming to the election season, feeding the xenophobic nation with populist policies of how they are springing into action tackling those "terrible" foreigners. Sorry, but people like you lap it up and contribute to it. Very sad,,, rant over...

Someone should sneak into a cave and write Prayuth and Prawits name somewhere prominent. Add Sutheps for good measure.
