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

Recommended Posts

'Also charged...' hmmmy,  thus still does not prove the insecure guard was charged! 

The 'also' was still seperately relevant... but really only due to the videoer being charged for the losing face streaming on social media aspect.

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.

You may call it provocation, but long ago in Patpong, when some of the upstairs bars preyed on drunken or unwary foreigners, and salted their bills by thousands of Baht, leading to an argument, it used to be a regular occurrence to see the girls smash glass ashtrays on the foreigners' heads as they tried to escape, and see the wolves come running to take free kicks at their heads as they lay bleeding and unconscious in the gutter outside. 

Misguided? Certainly, but when you are a tourist new to a culture, you don't always understand the consequences of your behaviour and actions.

There is definitely a need to reduce head stomping in the world, and especially here amongst the nearly brain dead men working security at these clubs. Head stomping is never a good idea, rarely is it necessary, and it can result in great bodily harm, permanent damage, and sometimes even death. All head stompers who are caught should be subject to a minimum of 5 years in prison, and a fine of 2 million baht, payable to the stompee. 

 

It reminds me of a percentage of law enforcement in the US. Shooting to kill, when it would have been sufficient to simply put down the potential threat, without deadly force.

No video?

 

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.

You need to stop looking down on and sneering at, Thai people. Then they would not dislike you

No just don't pick a fight with a security guard at 1am.

Unbelievable.

You are condoning possible death, permanent head injuries, loss of facilities. Nice person>>>not

Makes sense. Fights usually don't just start on their own, it takes 2 to tango.

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.

Sounds like a normal night out in country New South Wales.

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.. 

 

I don't believe that. I seriously don't believe any tourist, even sex tourists and piss artists think about what might happen should they get pissed-up and get into a fight. They don't think about the physical or legal consequences as part of their holiday destination selection criteria!

Normal tourists and family groups certainly don't either.

 

I think most people will think "just another drunk having a fight with a bouncer and coming off worse".

 

UK used to have rough bouncers in the 70's. Pick a fight with them and they'd all pile in at some clubs. But I suggest most police forces would've charged the customers as well as possibly the bouncers after the event.

If someone hits you and you defend yourself there should be no charge. It looks as though this guy could not defend himself and was brutally beaten, yet they charge him. These security guards should have training to deal with the customers of these bars and clubs to avoid such incidents and bad press for Thai tourism. I certainly would not go for a drink in tbat area after reading this.

Often little or no provocation can set off a drugged up security guard anywhere.

I well remember the case of a passerby filming a beating outside a club in Patong which resulted in the thug (guard) switching his attack from the drunk on the sidewalk to the old expat with the phone. It ended badly for the thug, he was killed and the expat exonerated in court.

I remember another case where the drunks had been ejected from the premises and were leaving, but the security guy, reinforced by mates working in other premises decided to inflict a beating anyway. Security thugs, anywhere, don't deserve sympathy, when they decide their job allows them to assault their clients. 

 

Behavior reminiscent of many UK establishment bouncers back in the 70's. Some thought having such a reputation good as it put the trouble makers off. Of course it often didn't. The real hard cases saw it as a challenge! Many bouncers were just out for a chance to wallop someone; others just needed the extra cash.

 

Now it's highly regulated and door staff and security must be trained and are strictly controlled in what they can and can't do.
