The Full Moon Parties are the mother of all idiot magnets.

I've never been to one in Thailand, nor do I have any desire to go.

 

However, the Full Moon parties at the Bomba Shack on Tortola back in the 90's were a rockin' good time. I was at a few and never saw any idiocy.

 

Bomba would go out into the jungle and pick "mushrooms" and half fill a glass carboy then fill the rest with rum punch and let it simmer for a month. Then he'd break it out on the full moon.

 

Anyone ever do a Bomba full moon party?

This is what police say.
I'm not sure at all whether it's true or not.

Here in this land of happiness they say:

Honesty is hard to come by,

Falsehood is trade like a commodity

Someone once told me "Honesty is only for those who can afford it"

If you are very rich could you really afford to be honest in your tax return in this land of happiness.

It doesn't matter if this guy had been drinking. The police should have questioned him immediately. Important details can be lost. The officer then could have identified possible witnesses (the girl and others) still in the area even if the victim was too drunk to make a coherent statement. The location possible witnesses, and time could at a minimum be determined if a preliminary report is taken... That gets fuzzy the next day... 

 

Also, if a drunk guy has been assaulted... As a public servant one should make sure he gets home safe or to medical treatment.

It sounds like the officer (doesn't say what kind) was on a personal motobike. He was likely headed home or elsewhere and perhaps not on duty...

His drinking doesn't mean he was wrong. I'd hate to be ignored in an emergency if I had a few drinks.

Thai police work is different from western countrys, if you are rich here and have BIB friends they may help you, if you ar a low budget backpacker and get assaulted, get away from the island as soon as possible.  (me think the three offenders have police friends).

Seems he did not tell the whole truth, he was drunk and the police send him to his hotel. Seems like a good idea to me. Better to interrogate someone who is sober. 

 

But at least the guy did not lie about the attack. 

What part does not seem he told the whole truth? Especially, since you say, " . . . at least the guy did not lie about the attack."

:biggrin:   Now why did I expect a post like this, first post, Kah Ching and there it is; The money shot. It may be all true ...... but but but ... 'like he was drunk ..... even if he .....  didn't lie'

 

Can we denigrate the guy a little more, for doing the right thing, at a real risk to his life and limb?!  :thumbsup: I think we can. Lets have a race to the bottom.

It doesnt matter if you're young or old , it's stupid to get drunk and get high in Thailand. Live healthy and enjoy life.

I have stated my piece.

 

I go with the Yank as the Thai police force is one of the most corrupt and inefficient on the planet.

 

What say you,Keanu?
