   Stop overreacting .

The posts are getting more and more extreme and there seems to be a competition running to see who can over react the most  .

IMO , the poster in lead in the over reaction competition is the one who  compared Thai immigration officers to an occupying force and anyone who agrees with them is a collaborator 

I never overreact-'tis against my nature..

 

I tell you what tho'..if we happen to pass each other in Chang Mai (worst polluted city on the planet) let us just nod to each other as I would never speak to a "farang" who exalts in the incarceration of another for a 10 day overstay.

 

You have been doing it (in one form or another) for years.

He didnt overstay though and he wouldnt have been incarcerated had he just overstayed for ten days , he would have just gotton a 5000 Baht fine .

He is incarcerated for entering Thailand illegally

Did you even read the story ?

It quite clearly states that he was in Thailand without a visa or entry stamp and that he was in Thailand illegally and he wasnt overstaying (because he wasnt on a visa and didnt have a departure date)

You have been doing it for years-attacking every "farang" in sight..it is a staple of your daily existence-and what an existence it must be..

 

I don't think that his incarceration in IDC would be a pleasant one-do you?

 

Also he is 69 of age so he may have medical issues..who knows?

 

Nevertheless those who habitually exalt in the incarceration of other "farang" for trivial offenses exist way below my event horizon-6 days a week and twice on Sundays.

No I havent been attacking "every ferang in sight for years " , but in this case , I realise that this guy broke the law , quite probably deliberately and I also realise that age, being 69 doesnt make him exempt from prosecution for breaking rules and laws .

   BTW , are you of a similar age and also in Thailand illegally ?

Really-are you now accusing me of living in Thailand illegally?

 

Proves my point in spades...

65 dead people or 10 day overstay old falang = Get him, get him now !!!!!!!!!

 

Yes, i think the police should concentrate there efforts elsewhere.

move a few thousand, photo op boys, and Big joke buddies, to different desks,  payroll stays the same.

But it sure is hard to get,  the Thai authorities to care about any real things.

they all have, the it's not my job attitude or just don't care at all.

 

BTW, think immigration Police, have the same,  if not more powers than the average cop, so why not get them to do some real work in the community.

thats my point, whats yours ?:coffee1:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fairly obvious what my point was: that the immigration police handles immigration issues. The biggest causes of death in Thailand are stroke and heart disease, so with your logic they should take resources from the police and instead spend it on healthcare.

 

Just because there are murderers in the world, doesn't mean we should let lesser criminals run rampant since they're tame in comparison. The guy F'e up, and now he has to face the consequences. No one's saying he's the biggest threat in Thailand or that he should be hanged.

Can you not tell the difference between a question and and accusation ?

Add that also to not knowing the difference between overstay and illegal entry

Sorry-it was a direct accusation as to whether I am overstaying in Thailand-and therefore doing something illegal.

 

The supposed question is immaterial as it was merely rhetorical..

 

As in "Are you as thick as two planks?"

Or "Are you two sandwiches short of a picnic?"

What childish antics by Thai immigration. Can't they ever do their job without calling in the press for photo session for every little thing they do. Do Thai men never grow up. Who are they trying to impress. Very strange.

You don't think perhaps the Thai Police have a press bureau? Or the Immigration Office have a publicity department? I mean the IO have a need for a publicity department, right? And just perhaps, maybe, who knows, publications call these departments and ask 'anything on farangs today?' because it usually sells clicks?

 

And maybe the press, knowing what sells clicks, says 'can you pose up a picture for our report, please?'

 

They're called the fifth estate and they are evil.

I thought you moved to Australia last year? Did you manage to come back?
