Foreigner also to be charged after head stomped by Bangla security guard

I’ll never argue with a security guard regardless of who is right or wrong. I’m not sure how many of you saw the video a couple of years ago about the Thai man trying to drive into his Moohbaahn but is stopped by security to show his ID. The guy is drunk and they start arguing. The security walks over and gets a pistol and shoots the guy in the head point blank range. He even comes and gives him a kick in the head after he’s already dead. Shot dead in front of his own house for arguing.

Thais know they can hurt us, sometimes badly, and get away with it. These kind of incidents reinforce in their minds that they can get away with it with a small penalty or no penalty at all. But if a farang hurts a thai, believe that that guy is going in.

head stomping is over the top; but after 13 years in patong (and some thousand nights in Bangla) I can say that farang-beatings never come un-provoked. we all know that.

 

Never ?? Give me a break..

I lived here for over 20 yrs.... have never been in a physical altercation. Have I argued?, yes, have I been scammed?, yes.  But, have never even been touched in an angered situation.  Except by my wife who pinches me on occasion. If you put yourself in un-controllable situation, things can lead to uncontrolled situations.  I’ve seen idiots get drunk and do really stupid things, from this point anything can happen.  Too many idiots feel they can get drunk and get a pass on being stupid.  If you’re going to get drunk be smart enough to bring a babysitter big enough and responsible enough to throw you over his shoulder and take care of your stupid drunken ass.

I dont understand why Thai tourism numbers are down.

 

Where else in the world can you be overcharged by a taxi to go to bar where you can pay high prices to drink bad beer in the company of elderly fat women, and have your head stomped on for free at the end of the evening? People should be flocking here in droves.

The article says the foreigner is an expat who owns a business in Thailand.  It doesn't say what business or where, but perhaps a competing bar?  

As for the foreigner being charged I think it would depend on who started the physical altercation.  But head stomping should be seen as attempted murder because it easily can lead to death or permanent damage.

The security guards/touts on Soi Bangla are the most aggressive I have ever seen. As a matter of fact, calling them security guards gotta be a joke. To be hired by a Bangla bar, all you need is to be as pushy as hell and despise farangs, and that is saying a lot in a country as xenophobic as Thailand. 

That, of course, doesn't mean that the Farang was completely blameless in this particular incident (LOS seems to attract a lot of 'high quality' farangs), but my money would be on the 'security guard' being the main aggressor.

Let me guess, you spent those 20 years in a Thai monastery? Or, do you look like Mike Tyson?

Do expats in Thailand need to stick together and start wearing bodycams to protect one another.

 

What kind of footage could be accrued and what effect could it have.

It's Incidents like this, when shared on social media to the world, that affects tourist's decisions to either come to Thailand or bypass it totally and choose another destination.. 

 

That the police could charge the foreigner who's getting his head stomped on by security is an absolute joke.. And TAT is wondering why tourist nos are well down on last year..
