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

Accurate reading of a situation and commenting on it is not trolling!  You and the others who can't be bothered to get things right are the ones doing the trolling!

 

So what if a police officer is in the photo, perhaps he was involved in the investigation, that doesn't mean that he was representing a police donation. 

 

The TAF is a charitable foundation, there is every need to promote it's existence and the reason that it's there.  By doing that they can attract donors and connections to other charities and perhaps be in a position to offer more assistance in the future, is that such a bad thing?  Jesus...

 

What I said was not "what I like to claim", it was fact, if you read the link you'd know that.

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

The recipients did not have to be there!  And they weren't "parading grieving relatives".

and the Arab rider ?

 

what happened to him ?

Real question. I try google but can not find it.

 

If a foreigner tourist kills another foreigner tourist in US or Europe, how much do the police give to help?

And how much the foreigner have to give the dead foreigner family? 

I don't know exactly how this works in countries without a proper social safety net like the US, but in countries as for example Germany, and probably other European countries as well:

The police don't have to pay anything, it's paid for by the compulsary vehicle insurance. In case the vehicle is not insured there is some fund from which the money is taken, who will then try to recoup the money from the person who caused the accident.

They will get money for the pain of losing a close person (in Germany not much, i assume in the US this would be way more), as well as any damages caused. So let's say the mother took care of the child and household, but was killed. Then this is considered a damage, and the person who caused the accident has to pay for this, which means paying to employ somebody who does these chores.

So if the deceased person had young children, we are talking about many million THB.

Similar in Thailand.

Pay insurance at ตรอ (dtor ror or) when check the car/give the sticker.

That one pay it for somebody hurt or kill if you crash them. The Arab bike insurance must pay it for her. 

 

Also the police make the killer pay the family also. If he refuse, he go in jail.

(if redbull he will escape it to England)

Not really the same, because the 300k THB which the compulsary Thai insurance pays is not even enough for Thai people, and for western countries this is just a joke.

And if the vehicle didn't have the compulsary insurance it might happen that the victim doesn't get any money.

Amount is immaterial ... that they used it as a photo op is just, well, bad.

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

How can a parked car ever be responsible, Stationary vehicles should be avoided,

its only 5000 baht and stupid and tacky tomake a photo op.. the Russian family will receive more money along with the 'facilitators' that is the police & the prosecutor from the arab offender who was in the hospital serious condition after the acident.. highly unlikly that he would be able to leave the country before the case sttled.. that's probably why the Russian family was willng to do the photo-op

the police should be concentrating on getting justice for the victim in the case. 

It'll take more than 5000 baht to stir Pattaya Plod into action.  They are good for nothing but road banditry/and extortion.  They make noises about road safety; noisy bikes; polluting vehicles; but can't/won't stop red-light runners and meterless taxis (despite Prayuth banging on about the law of the land in BKK).
