How can it be only 10 years? Oohhh I forgot; he was "only" a Farang.

R.I.P Troy.

 

Do you know the whole story?  He refused to pay his 51 baht taxi fare which he claimed was the result of a rigged meter and then he threw a cup of coffee over the driver, the driver then got out the taxi in a rage and struck him with a sword.

No matter how many lost bags are returned, wont make up for this over 50 Baht

 

The 50 baht or the hot coffee thrown in his face?

The Thai taxi driver who killed the American Troy Pilkington with a machete received a sentence of 10 years in prison.

 

I don't know the date that his jail term started, but it would be interesting to check if he is still in prison...

Let's hope the guy involved here actually serves his 10 year sentence for a murder. But this place being what it is, he probably won't....

Problem is, some foreigners do the same and get away lightly.....thats the judicial/corrupt system here

So that justifies killing someone, its premeditated murder, the driver had a samurai sword on board.....what reason is there to carry such an article in your daily business as a cabby......none, unless you are going to use it to hurt someone.

It was NOT a samurai sword.
