Monk savagely beats his drinking buddy to death in broad daylight at Chiang Mai temple

Mae Ping police were called to the temple of Ku Kham after witnesses said they saw an itinerant monk beat a man to death. 

 

Phra Wichian, 55, was seen viciously punching and kicking a 40-50 year old man. 

 

When the man lay still on the ground the monk kept kicking him, said witnesses. 

 

Then he coolly walked out of the temple saying: "He was drunk". 

 

Witnesses said that Wichian was also drinking after the other man went to buy beer in the morning. 

 

The victim has not been named.

 

People at the temple said that Phra Wichian was not one of their monks. He came from Nakorn Sawan and had asked to stay as the temple is near the bus station. They could not say if he was a real monk or just masquerading as one in robes. 

 

The victim was a similar character - though he was not in robes at the time. 

 

Sanook reported and showed in a video later in the day that Phra Wichian was arrested on the Chiang Mai to Lamphun Road near the Kawila Camp.

 

He denied being involved and refused to take part in a reenactment. 

 

He has been charged with assault causing death with Mae Ping police saying they have all the witnesses and evidence they need to make the charge stick.

Monks in general need reining in. Wouldn't go amiss if the joining criteria was re-assessed from the current "has a heartbeat" requirement and that's it.

Monks get too much respect...as do most men of the cloth...they are quite human...not diety...🤔

Indicative behavior of Thailand...No surprise anymore.  Everyday is a battle to avoid conflict here.  Makes living in the US and its crazy gun happy folks sane and sensible.  I have been really re-evaluating how much longer I'll remain.   Feeling the immigration and life in general is much more of a gamble/risk here than some other countries.

He refused to take part in the reenactment. I didn't know they had a choice.

Yes, and even on the odd occasion, they don't confess. Very rare that though, usually reserved for the wealthy.
