Thief suspect says he missed life inside two hours after prison release

A recently-freed jailbird allegedly committed another crime in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district just two hours after his release on Thursday in order to be sent back to his “home” where food, accommodation and comrades await him.

 

Police said Khanchit Sutthipichai, 39, who was caught allegedly trying to steal a motorcycle and sidecar and thus was charged for theft, told the Na Chom Tien Police officers that he had been released two hours earlier from the Nong Pla Lai Prison after serving a six-month imprisonment for possessing drugs.

 

"I have no idea what to do after the release. I have no money at all, I don't have any food to eat and I miss my friends in prison,” he reportedly said. “So I stole the motorcycle so I can be arrested and sent back to jail."

 

He reportedly said prison life for him was not as hard as living outside. He said he had friends, food and accommodation behind the confined walls.

I saw a UK documentary a few years ago where the guy said a similar thing:

 

"I get 3 meals a day, a bed and shelter, plus I've got lots of mates here".

 

Within 5 hours of him being released he was arrested again. This time they sent him to Norwich prison instead of Pentonville, where all his mates were.

Very sad to hear, especially given the hardship of Thai prisons. I have never heard of anyone being satisfied with the food. This man is a hopeless case and I can't say much for the Thai legal system, either.

As silly as it sounds but it’s not out of the ordinary for inmates to feel

this way after release and it’s not limited to Thailand only.

 

Many form bonds inside that they never had on the outside.

so best thing to do is NOT jail him again...if life outside is so bad.

He is getting things for free in jail so outside will make it hard for him....

Yes, and Buddha forbid, he would have to actually do a days work for a change.

Couldn't the government have a special program for people like that, just keep him in prison but give him work to earn some money. If he could make something for sale then get him to work in prison and he could stay as long as he likes. Is it illegal to do that? The International Human Rights come breathing down your neck? They will complain it's slave labour? Well, the prisoners willing to sign an agreement.

Can you imagine you send him back on the street with no money what do you expect him to do? It's just simply pathetic.

If you really think about it, it is the best one can do for people like that, it's a win win situation isn't it? Prisoners are happy and the world outside is free from nuisance. Can anything be better?

Sometimes I think government civil servants aren't doing their job, they are sitting on their brains because their brains are located at the bottom where they sit on it.

The best thing (Or the less bad) to do in his case would have been to ask to a temple to host him

and become a monk, Free shelter and free food but you have to follow the strict rules.

And going this way he could have bought some credit (Most than needed in his case)

for his future reincarnation.
