Some of these comments are truly sick.

We are talking about one person accused of a somewhat serious criminal act.

He happens to be African American.

To extrapolate from this case the way you and others are doing is clearly racist.

Don't we have enough of that hateful racist garbage from other sources these days?

Why can't people be fair and treat this case for what it actually is. Charges against one specific particular man for a specific particular crime?

 

The caught people they sprayed cars and walls in Bangkok where white Americans. The idiots they sprayed the city wall in Chiang Mai in Chiang Mai were a white Brit and a white Canadian. There are idiots from every skin color and every nation.

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.

You're preaching to the converted, dude. My point which you obviously missed is that most Americans that were that broke assed which indeed is very common, would not be traveling to the other side of the world.

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.

Yeah, sure, but I don't think he is in the strongest NEGOTIATING position.

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.

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.

Naive??  Seriously?  Just to be clear....sir, you are not what I would consider naive, given your two completely asinine comments.  Your comments are so insanely ignorant, that "naive" is not what comes to mind....

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.

Why do you care so much about the GD money? If he doesn't have it, he can go have fun in the playpen like the rest of the perps!

That dark 'fim' on the windshield doesn't attach to the windshield by itself you know.

Apart from being illegal, only a dummy would dark film a windscreen 🙄

Because I don't think anyone here or anywhere should really get much time, and Thailand is hard time, for that kind of property crime. So I just hope that he can find a way to raise the money he needs is all.

If someone smashed my windscreen I'd want them to pay for the replacement and some. I think there's nothing wrong asking for some compensation on top considering their cars will have been out of action, its the added inconvenience.  Depending on the vehicle, loss of earnings could come into it too.

That's true. It's not only the replacement cost but the hassle and time dealing with it.

I think 50,000 baht for 3 windshields is rather expensive

Are you serious?  A single windshield is around 800 USD.  50,000 THB is chump change... and that clearly doesn't replace 3 windshield!
