In Thailand pretty girls are often attracted to “cops”.  I don’t know whether its the tight uniforms, the power to elicit fear, the machismo or what.  So if your gf has ever had a beau who was a cop and you are not 1000% sure she’s actually cut the cord or he’s the jealous type I would stay away from such “former cop gf’s” at all costs because you will never win against a man who has a gun and knows where to hide.

Just  ask the Norwegian fella who was stitched up by his Thai wife and the local police captain last year.

 

The Thai police are a law unto their own utter lawlessness.

I am familiar with a few Lumphini / Thong Lor coppers as well and know exactly how they operate. 
 
The numerous and regular stories of their activities countrywide should be enough for any person with a modicum of intelligence to work out they are not there to protect or serve the general public but graft and self-enrichment is the name of the game. 
 
That was no 'Crime of Passion' that was a street-fight over a brass and subsequent murder committed by a coward.
Not according to the reports I've read, but feel free to carry on speculating.

Apart form the craziness of the whole thing this statement "Immigration Bureau chief Pol Lt Gen Surachate Hakpal instructed investigators at the Lumpini station to handle the case in strict accordance with the law and not try to assist their colleague." just shows Thai society IMHO. I mean what type of person would try to help a colleague that just shot somebody in the head and killed them!!!

 

If you think Thai society is the only place where police officers have been known to help other officers even after those officers had killed someone, you should read news more widely.

I would hardly call soi 11 low class. Quite the opposite although in the vid it doesn't look like 11

It isn't Soi 11 it is soi 11/1. The soi in between soi 11 and soi 13. By the way the guy lived in a condo at The Trendy in soi 13 that is why he ran to there.

From what has transpired so far the cop is a criminal. The Frenchman an unfortunate victim notwithstanding that he did foolish things like fighting an armed cop. He probably applied western logic in assuming the cop wouldn't shoot as cops are not expected to get emotional and pull a gun. I'm just thinking there are so many people in that area even at dead of night. It's a famous hangout lined with spas, eateries, massage joints ... any innocent bystander could have got hit if that cop had missed his target.

Wasn't it daylight, about 7 in the morning, when the cop shot him? From the video there were few people about.

Certainly not in the lobby of the Trendy at that hour. Possibly en route to soi 13 as it was a work day, but no eyewitnesses have come forward.

Why has this guy not been sentenced yet? He's already been caught and they're reels of CCTV footage that prove the cop is guilty. He should be in the slammer already.

if in London or America, maybe the family gets 1 billion baht.

 

i suspect a 20 baht note will suffice in this case. 

 

But 500 baht cleaning charge, so the family will owe 480.

 

gf will hopefully get all spare cash and maybe watch...

 

it's fun buying 20 baht soup, living in 200 baht rooms, until this happens and maybe it's not worth it.
