Video: American tourist in custody for criminal damage to cars in Chiang Mai

Many criticized the formation of a special unit dedicated to dealing with crime by African Americans in Chiang Mai, it seemed far too narrow a niche, but, to be fair, the Black Hawk Detective Unit does appear to be justifying it's existence. This is now the tenth offender in just one month who has caused damage but does not have the 50K necessary to buy their way out of incarceration.

I am not American, is $1,600 genuinely too much money for US citizens to assemble? Can other US friends not lend them the money?

I am probably naive, but I assumed that everyone had at least some emergency money in reserve, particularly if they are in the habit of getting drunk and smashing up cars while visiting other countries.

I do not feel any primal need to inflict harm on other people while I am drunk, but even I have some money in reserve for emergencies. Surely everyone does this, regardless of color?

Just to be clear, I respect that black culture is different, I understand that the perpetrator is not responsible for what he has done and that this is squarely the fault of white privilege.

 

Is there a suggestion that America's social problem with African-Americans is being exported?

He may well have been drugged , he was in the bar area and its not uncommon for someone to slip something in your drink in that area

He was question in the "Blackhawk Detective Unit"

 

So do Blacks get their own Detectives 😲

No. Nothing to do with that.

No. That is not the case at all.

Do they take a check? Also good follow would be to get 2nd cost estimates...

 

Isn't there a nearby usa interrogation unit that guarantee results?

how does one travel halfway around the world to tland and not have access to $1500us is incredulous. No money eh bro?  OK, we've got a few months of work for you to do now.... care to think about your funds again?

I think most tourists from the USA would have access to 50K usually on a U.S. bank based ATM card. Maybe he's an exception. Maybe he didn't budget well enough for his trip. Maybe he was misinformed about how "cheap" it is to travel in Thailand. In any case, if it's mostly a matter of coming up with that sum or another negotiated sum, maybe the U.S. consulate can help him contact people back in the U.S. that might wire the money.

No.

It's not that.

Clearly he was abducted by aliens that made him do it.

Look, he didn't claim that he wasn't drugged and even if he was I've never heard of a crime drug that makes people want to vandalize random cars.

 

Anyway, given his situation, that he admitted to the crimes is the one thing in his favor.
