Why does the report have to state the persons nationality so boldly..."He's British"!!!! It seem like the reporter is triumphant about something.? What is the reason...what are they trying to imply? What the hell difference does it make? Every country has an endless mix of people "types" good, bad, and ugly, so what relevance is it?

Because everybody on TV wanted to know.

Jeab is now satisfied that the case is over and has dropped her complaint with the Pattaya police.

I hope it does not stop there, It was theft and if the police have evidence then they should pursue it even if the victims withdraw their complaints.

 

I expect the boys down Soi 9 will be getting a call from Bangkok if they have not already, I am sure the manager at the supermarket would have done his best to get a name and where he was staying as no doubt he will have to file a report to his head office on this.

Foreign scumbag, stole money and ask for forgiveness, he should be arrested for theft and prosecuted. Hope somebody recognize him and teach him some manners.

And if he were American?

I can see it now, big team of lawyers suing everyone, Supermarket for infringement of civil liberties, her for implying he was a thief, thaivisa and other social media web sites and all of us who did not post favorable comments about his actions...

I wonder how long it will be before all those who accused Jeab of lying about the amount come out to apologise?

 

Should be any time soon.  Just after Pattaya freezes over.

As l wrote the person himself will say how much money he picked up.

I suggest you look up the definition of mistake.

 

noun
 
  1. 1.
    an action or judgment that is misguided or wrong.
     
    In this case, his action was both misguided and wrong, hence a mistake.
    Or, do you doubt the dictionary definition ? 

It was also a crime, hence his desire not to have the police involved.  I suggest that you should look at the context of the incident.

But the person isn't obliged to comply.

Actually I want to ask a serious question, how do we know he is British ? We only have the lady,s word to go on, he may have spoken English but could be from a multitude of different countries, the police were not involved so no sighting of his passport or drivers licence, I mean he could easily come from the USA, NZ, SA, AUS or God forbid even the Isle of Wight......................

Perhaps he told her that he was from Britain.

We have the "Exclusive" story today...the  3rd. day in a row about a guy stealing 2,000 Bt. in a shop?

  Will somebody please..  "get a grip"... for God's sake...and move on to something really news worthy?

There are plenty of other news items on Thaivisa, this is not the only one that is being commented on.   You do not have to read this one if it bothers you so much and whether any news report is "newsworthy" or not is purely subjective.  Perhaps it's you who needs to get a grip or move on?
