American tourist attacked by armed gang after stopping robbery on Koh Phi Phi

Recommended Posts

You doubters.  And grammar police.  His English and story seem fine to me.  I think his story will have an impact on tourism.  40 k followers on Instagram and looking at had account gives him cred.   maybe I should say something like if Americans have been traveling to Thailand more the last 30 years the place would be a better place to live and safer and cleaner all you wimps.

Is it against the law to say the police have a corruption problem?

Examples are in the news all the time.  Political parties are saying they want to stop it.  By the way what time is it!  Anyone have a watch on?

if you've never swam naked in the surf with your girlfriend and possibly more you're a dotard. Thai women know better.  Thai women are so afraid of rape in Thailand it's disgraceful.  If their house is at all isolated they lock up like fort Knox after dark.  The attitude as explained to me is no way would a Thai woman ever sun bathe alfresco even in their  own walled yard  as this is as good as a yes invitation.   Tourists need to know Koh Samui, Phucket and the area in between is mafia controlled.   All the local gals  admit this.

The sign with it on had been recycled for one of Big Joke's self-serving photo-opportunities.

That will be the Problem of Thailand, not enough Americans here. They should run a Campaign for the Elections: Bring more Americans to Thailand to make Thailand cleaner and a better Place to live.

Congratulations on being a good person even though it caused you harm.   

It took guts to do what you did and I truly think the bad guys will be found and punished...unfortunately...for the most part because the tourism business for Thailand is essential.

My friend, also an American (as I am), had a similar story attempting to assist a woman who was being beaten only to have 7 Thai friends come to the assailant's assistance and beat the crap out of his car breaking his windshield trying to get to him and he luckily drove away.

Yes I'm a stuck record - 1) Khon Thai Jai Dee 2) Thailand No.1 3) Showing anger is behaving like a monkey 4) Thailand is a no confrontational society....

 

There was another thread a couple of days ago about Cambodia bing more dangerous than Thailand, hmm....

 

Asians as a whole have a penchant for nastiness when you scratch the surface. That said, when I returned to the UK for a visit in 2007 after a 12 year absence, my brother warned me to cross the road hen I saw a group of teenagers approaching - good advice. We are both ex physical training instructors with 20+ years in the army, but the days of bravado sometimes need to be left behind if you want to see your next birthday.

I do usually read all of the post in a thread before I post or else I specify that but I don't always keep tabs of each person's conversation.  I think maybe the results could have been different if he went to the police station, what do you guys think?  Catching some policeman on the way to it from  his mia not isn't going to work too well 

 

He posted on Instagram that his story is out to some media outlets.  3 to 5 odds that big joke will show up he probably needs a vacation with his cute sidekick.

Not sure what you mean on that one so I've reported you for being anti Brit and all grammar police. 🤪
