You've witnessed a crime and you're probably a bit rattled by it, I understand that. If as you say there's CCTV footage the victim can decide whether or not he wants to file a police report. Carry yourself accordingly, don't get so drunk you lose control and you'll be fine mate. It's just one of those things.

well the thing is that the thai criminals picked up on this asian drunk man. knowing he will not call the police' either cause he is too drunk or that he is asian who is affraid of his wife.

so i wonder if i should do it, just to let the police know.

and even if someone gets so drunk, he does not deserve to be beaten like that.

You're absolutely right mate, it's disgusting and the poor lad has my full sympathy. As I say though, it's up to him to report it, you're not a better witness than a camera. As difficult as it may be just try to enjoy the rest of your holiday. This sort of thing can happen almost anywhere, hopefully it won't sour your opinion of Thailand too much.

  • Maybe the drunk asian man attempted sexually assault or a lady or a man in the bar?

A bar owner isn't going to be lacking money so much that he needs to steal a little bit of cash from a mans wallet

There is probably more to this story which you didn't see what happened.

 

A bar owner isn't willing going to start robbing his own customers who are helping is business unless he has a good reason too...Its not worth reporting

if it was Ibiza bar or the one opposite bar 69 then the owners are actually police or ex police.

 

I would just forget about it personally, you dont the whole story.

yes i will forget about it, but also will forget about holidaying in thailand. This case proved to me

how cheap is my life and security in thailand, and how easily i can be beaten and attacked in abusy  main street.

why are you hoping it will not sour my opinion of thailand too much? are

you the thai tourist minister? hua hin mayor? 

i don't think so. 

i think you are a tourist just like me, so you also should be worried about how easily

and confident you can be attacked in thailand's main street. by thai police or just man

who don't like how you walk / talk, cause they know they will not pay any price.

thanks but no, i will not come back to thailand.

one funny thing in all this story, is that asian nerd tourist only crime was

to get too drunk. he was really so drunk and could not even walk straight, 

The guy was from South Asia, a.k.a. the Indian sub continent. I have seen a number of examples of Indians holidaying in Thailand and behaving completely inappropriately towards women, i.e. sexually assaulting them. It does sound like this was the case here. One of the Thais actually claimed this as the reason for the assault and the D.J. touching his backside, was either demonstrating the nature of the allegation or saying, "How do you like it, you dirty pervert?".

 

If you had seen the incident from the beginning, not just the end game, you would have probably thought that he got less than he deserved.

 

Another thing that I've seen before, Thai instant justice. Works for me.

To be honest, this sounds exactly like police behaviour (towards drunks who have been identified as causing trouble) in a bar area. The fact the dj came out of a bar to participate confirms this. They are all working the same area every day and they know each other and know who has what role. There are police doing the same thing in every bar area in Thailand. They generally don't muck around with arrests. They smack them in the head a few times usually wearing sovereign style rings or knuckledusters, then they empty the wallet leaving one or two notes.

if they were Ridgy Didge Police, then he'd have been 'taken away'

 

I am assuming, due lack of detail at the tail end; that he was left dumped where he lay?

Only if you behave very inappropriately. I have visited and lived here for a number of years. Never been assaulted by a Thai. There's almost always a reason behind them attacking a farang.

i also visited thailand many times. and no, i don't think it is appropriate to beat people brutally in the middle of a busy street. especially when they are tourists. sure "there's allmost allways a reason behind them attacking a farang". but does it justify an attack on farang? do you accept living like that? like a second or third class person who can be beaten because of a "reason"? that's, to say the least, is a slave mentality. those smacks made me wake up. no more thailand holidays for me.

i did not stay to watch until the end. i was so angry to see this that i just got up and left. 

the most outragous thing was, as mentioned, that those two thai man felt to comfortable to beat that tourist. they did not mind at all that they are attacking him in middle of the walking street, surrounded by tourists. it was as if they are saying : this is our country and we will smack the hell out of you if you do not behave the way we like. i am sure that one of them was a policeman / related to police, otherwise they would not dare. so no, thailand, this deal is not for me.

yes , i heard many stories like that, i even have a friend who was allmost beaten to death, kicked in the head by four thai man (whom he claimed to be policeman, but i did not believe) in the middle of a busy street, middle of the day. the reason - a business dispute he had with another thai - chinese businessman.  but i never saw it. now that i saw it - i believe and feel very different about thailand.
