Well things have changed now. Special lines at the airport, preferred job status, discounts all over the place, just saying. 

The US even extends discounts to visiting Military forces.

He should be nominated for an Oscar.  

 

Is there any relevance to the mention of his being in the US navy?

I would want revenge.  The lesson here is in thailand you have no freedome. Its all a illusion. At any moment any one of us could be held against our will. Treated like a dog and pretty much destroy our life.

 I realize this now after many years of thinking if i am not doing anything wrong i am fine.

The us military probobly saidvlet him go or no more hardwares

Derek Keller met with his wife Tanya and daughter Beverly on Tuesday after more than one year at a South Korean airport before returning to the lone star state on Wednesday. Keller was locked up in Bangkok’s maximum security Klong Prem Prison without bail since Aug. 2018.

 

 

What badly written piece of journalism

“ ...The guy in this case certainly knew he was part of a big scam.  He was helicoptered to big events, one at the Royal Cliff in Pattaya and thoroughly played the role of CEO, making speeches with specific financial claims.  He was paid very well.  His claims of being innocent & naive to what he was doing are laughable.”


He was paid $15,000.

We'd pose for selfies after but play dumb

Was a university education required for this occupation?

Poorly written sentence. Sounded like he spent a year at the airport. What was that Tom Hanks film?

... bet this fella wasn't allowed a volleyball for company in the cell either...

It has no relevance. It just makes a juicier story for the peddlers of "news". Former soldier. Former policeman. Former this, former that. Means nothing unless it has a direct relationship.

A report in a British newspaper yesterday 'Former Policeman Conned Out Of His Life Savings.'

 

He was in the Kenyan Police Reserve in 1953.

None. But for us Americans status as military or as a veteran means you gets you social status, makes your suffering more important thant others, and in general makes you a more special human being than the rest of us tax paying civilians. 

I can see by your quote your obviously not military. Now your chance to tell us how you served as a 0311 Bravo in the Army.

Didn't bother worrying about where the money came from as long as it came!

As per report, Thailand has a 95% conviction rate, so yea; I’d say the mention of his being in the US navy has a huge relevance. 
 

Next........

You say "Next..." as though you have just successfully answered a question.  Odd.  Did you jump up from the keyboard and swagger around the room after typing that?

 

"...his being in the US navy has a huge relevance".

How?  The connection between his job and an alleged 95% conviction rate, (were did that gem come from?) is what?

I'd say his job has absolutely no relevance to anything in this case of his.
