Police promise transparency as whistle-blower stirs social media

Caption: Under investigation
 
Police in Bangkok have reacted to a picture posted on Facebook by well-known whistle-blower Kriangkrai Thai-orn.
 
Comment was rife online after Kriangkrai posted a picture of a man with a woman on a police motorcycle. Neither are wearing helmets. 
 
He asked Hua Mark police to investigate. 
 
The Royal Thai Police spokesman Krissana Patanacharoen was soon involved saying that Hua Mark police denied it was one of them. 
 
He promised a full and transparent investigation to find the rider. If he was a policeman he would face internal disciplinary sanctions as well as a fine, he said.

Even though nearly everyone knows the police here are not serious people, they are still expected to set an example. Sort of amusing. They are franchisees. Not law enforcement. 

The police here do not have credibility amongst the Thai population for this and various other reasons and I am beginning to think the non wearing of helmets may indirectly be a sign of protest.

Today saw a policeman riding his bike with his officer hat on.  This counts for a helmet right?

(I couldn't pull over fast enough to snap a picture.)  This was down Sukhumvit Soi 26 ....

Why???  The police rarely enforce the motorcycle helmets law -- except when it's time for some revenue enhancement.

 

I was in downtown BKK the other day, standing at an intersection waiting for a long light, and watching a policeman out in the middle of the intersection directing traffic. All kinds of folks, singles, doubles, triples, were zooming past on motorcycles, most of them not wearing helmets. The guy never blinked.

Why have a law in place if it’s not going to be enforced.LOL

So the real problem there is he did not have his uniform on. Otherwise nothing would be said.
