The police did not help with anything!  A foundation that didn't have to assist and that has limited ability to assist did, though.

Trolling is your never ending habit, police is in the photo, no?

 

Limited? unable whatever the excuse you like to come up, there was zero need to publicize it with a photo op, even more so when as you like to claim they have "limited" ability

I hope someone advises the family to go after the motorcycle insurance as well as the car's.

I'd say thank you but no.  How about buy some helmets for less well off families or something.  No 'amount' of money will make a jot of difference to the grieving family.

Probably both at fault as the car looks illegally parked, better not to give anything than that amount.

On your clear ignorance and premature judgement, probably best not to make a post/comment like that. Or are you being ignored by people so much in your real world, that your only outlet is to post hateful thoughts on others via this forum?

 

Have some respect for a families loss.

Perhaps, as the foundation works with other charities, it was for publicity to show who they assist and to attract donations to help others?  Is there something wrong with that from a non-profit making foundation?  Jesus...

 

There are ways of getting publicity that don't involve parading grieving relatives in front of the media.

Couple of bottles of vodka and a few bowls of noodles, big spenders

5000 baht?  This place never ceases to amaze me and what's with the family, posing for that photograph? Wow. I'd have told them where to shove it.

This town needs a complete cleaning, from top to bottom. Then clear out the non-human rubbish.

So what was the purpose of the publicity photograph with the oversized cheque being given to the grieving relatives?

 

If they had privately given her 5000 baht that would have been fine.

They seem to 'need' these dog an pony shows where contributions are concerned. A charitable gift must be seen and lauded. Happened to me when I gave a relatively small donation to a rural school, and I just couldn't get out of it. It was every bit as cringe-worthy as the OP pic, except in front of the whole damned school and I felt humiliated.

It shows how far apart our cultures are.

Pity they did not give him a cheque as opposed to a check, but they seem to teach 'Americanish' here and not English anyway!! 555

Check or cheque. Spanner or wrench. Humor or Humour. Your post lends no value to the topic. This is not a spelling contest between UK and American English, except perhaps to you.

Whoever came up with the idea that 5,000 Baht would help the family cope should be sacked. That is just an insult.

Have to agree, no matter which country (Including Thailand) - if a "Government entity" offered such a small amount, for the life of a fellow human being - it can ONLY be construed as an insult, to that persons life and that persons family. 

 

I love Thailand and it's people. This is NOT representative of the people here - it is shameful.

Yinn, the police did not give anything to help in this case either.

Yes you are correct. I read/understand it wrong. The tourist people give it.

Thankyou.
