Strange headline!

 

Is the fact that he is white(farang) the point of interest?

 

Is the fact that he is probably a tourist of interest?

 

Can you imagine the New York Times saying, "well dressed African....." or the Guardian writing, "well-dressed Asian......"

 

 

 

If we were living in New York, I'd expect the headline to be 'Well dressed Tourist.....' although it would be difficult to determine that a person is a tourist just from CCTV.  In this case they'd probably put 'fat, old white man caught on CCTV shoplifting'.

Here in Thailand most of us want to know if the person was Thai, or Non Thai and as we have a convenient term to describe Westerners why not use it?   

Don't know about you but I have zero interest in stories about Thai's shoplifting, but a story about a farang does interest me slightly.

Idiot!  Clear views on not one, but TWO cameras!  Identify, arrest, convict, 6 months in a Thai prison, deport & blacklist. 

 

Wow 6 months for petty theft , whats the sentence for stealing a country ?

Doesn't look like he was trying to steal it.  Looks more like he was just carrying it off to find where to pay.  

Although he didn't look like the sharpest tool in the shed either.

This is an expat forum, of course the main point of interest in many of the stories is the fact that the story involves an expat.

What is it that looks to you like he was not trying to do exactly what he did do?

I like how he looks directly at the camera, perhaps pondering if it's a fake one 😄 Not exactly oceans "whateventh"-material this plod 👮‍♀️
