so murder for rape

seems fair

Seemed to reduce the incidence of rape, so guess many agreed with with idea.

Why would a savage animal like that think he could approach a sophisticated European tourist?

Now 2 death islands. Ko Tao and Ko Si Chang. Good advertising for Thailand. TAT will certainly love it.

Would that be before or after we find out if he was tortured until he confessed, possibly to a crime he didn't commit? 

 

It's amazing what people will cop to when you have a positive lead on the left nut and negative lead on the right one.

 

In a proper investigation ALL leads should be followed up.....

I am constantly amazed at how police are able to elicit a confession from 'suspects'.  Is there a secret interrogation method they use?

Confession and pleading guilty normally results in the final sentence being significantly reduced (halved, I think).

 

I suspect that for this reason some people confess and plead guilty even when they did not actually commit the crime at all.

 

The police like this system as it presumably results in higher conviction rates than might otherwise be obtained. It also requires less evidence and less work.

If there was a 24 hours notification duty for locals then they could easily find out if this predator  has been in Koh Tao.

And what happened to the laws that suspects faces are not allowed to be shown until proven guilty?

 

Selectively applied, like every law in Thailand.

It is not good for tourism industry. 

Really? I find the attitude of most people to almost any negative risk is to say "It won't happen to me"

Sure, they always are, fully investigated by the world's superior investigative police force the RTP. 

(Unfortunately there isn't a sarcasm button on TVF)
