It's the revolving door known as the Thai Penal System. There are close to quarter of a million people locked up in Thailand's overcrowded prisons and the only way to keep it barely manageable is early release, non custodial sentences and the annual amnesties.

well in the UK you only do half your sentence which is also pretty lenient to begin with.

Thailand's tourist police chief appeared at a press conference yesterday to declare that tourists would be safe and sound this high season and the country will act as hood hosts to the millions of visitors expected.

 

No comment needed.

He barricaded the door but after a stand off and while he was distracted his wife opened the door to officers. 

Bravo to the wife.

Why was that animal set free after his first assault???? 

The same 'catch & release' methodology that prevailed when the Pattaya gogo bar bouncer punched out a foreigner resulting in brain damage and death of the foreigner. Initially charged with grievous bodily harm, he was acquitted after the foreigner, who had been repatriated back to the UK for ultimately unsuccessful medical treatment, had died.

Yep, come on and visit Thailand all you foreign travelers. The Thai police have declared you'll be safe. But if you do get robbed, raped, or killed the police will find someone to charge so you can rest well.

I don't think talk is cheaper anywhere else in the world. I've found that Thais have a strange relationship with "saving face". It's extremely important to them, and losing it has been the cause of many murders, but they can easily shut their eyes to face-losing situations, pretending their integrity is not at stake when it's convenient.
