He was question in the "Blackhawk Detective Unit"

That's racist.

That's what it shows in the video clip. RTP signage.

why always Americans?

i guess americans have the highest crime rate in Thailand.

and high profile crimes too from drug smuggling to dealing to guns to extortion rackets etc.

Thai police should round up Americans and check them more with an operation called 'American Eagle'

And, Boiler Rooms

I agree completely with you-  I am amazed how a simple news item involving an American who happens to be a person of color, and did something  foolish has degenerated into some of the most racist rantings that I can remember.

 

Some of these posters would have fit right in during the Era of Jim Crow in the 50s and 60s, undoubtedly the same type of person that watches professional soccer in Europe and screams out racist epitaphs.  

 

 

Racism exists in this world today. It has, it is and it will exist forever, as long as the present species of humans exists. The bitter truth.

 

Edit

Are you amazed how a simple news item involving an American who happens to be a person of color, and did something  foolish? How about if he/she was of a different nationality? For example Thai, Indian, Chinese etc etc

posing in front of a temple, that can be used to promote tourism

Which woman in front of a temple ? You mean, the leggy Serbian tourist ? 😉

Does no one think that 50,000bht is a rip off for 3 windshields, if he is in fact guilty. My gf has had 3 cars repairs since we've been together, none of them have been close to one-third of 50,000bht. If he did do it, and he pays, I guarantee they get a new windshield and the work done for around 4,000 - 7,000bht each and pocket the rest of the money. If he did do it, such childish behavior. I've never been drunk enough to break other people's stuff, pretty immature and shameful.

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.

You would be wrong.  Americans may earn more money than most of the world but costs and short-sightedness tend to offset that.  Most Americans have very little in savings.  The thought that we are all rich is a myth.
