Foreigner arrested after racially abusing locals in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

"...and is due to appear in court in December."

 

<deleted>? I have been waiting over a year for a court case against someone, and still nothing. This guy is just a drunk. What happened to free speech? What law has he broken to deserve such swift treatment?

Would point out the guy is under 50 and has Thai kids.

None of the 'Thai crackdowns' currently affect him in any way.

The mentally ill need sympathy, understanding and medical care ........ not vilification.

My thoughts are in line with yours.  The guy goes to the same places and acts in a totally inappropriate manner by any cultural and social norm. 
The first thing that comes to my mind is the guy has psychiatric issues and needs help.  I've worked with mentally ill individuals as a volunteer in the past.  Yep, they can rattle off some pretty vile verbiage which is a symptom of their illness.  This guy needs to be transferred over to Suan Prung Psychiatric Hospital for evaluation. 

It will be sad if Thai media and social media use this as a springboard to foment anti-farang sentiment.  Two wrongs don't make a right.

From the video, where he appears to randomly swear for a few minutes then just as suddenly stop, I'd be thinking 'tourettes', he didn't even display aggression. Totally harmless.

That’s one thing you NEVER do anywhere in the world. To go to a foreign country and racially insult and abuse the locals. You’ll be in very deep serious trouble. 

     If you can’t respect and make friends with the locals....STAY IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY!!!!

I find it sad that so many are so quick to jump to conclusions and only judge by face value. You dont know "why" you are just focusing on "what" has happened.

There could be any number of reasons why a person might act/react in that way.

Clearly it is not normal behavior and I think the question should be as to what is behind/caused that behaviour and perhaps the guy is mentally distressed or disturbed and needs help.

 

Better to evaluate him correctly and the situation properly than just jumping to conclusions and condemning someone that may be in need of medication and support.

You just dont know, so stop jumping to conclusions without knowing all the facts.

needs therapy to find the source of his anger.  Thai's are probably not the fundamental problem.  he probably is not inherently a racists but could just be directing his anger in this way or perhaps he just feels alienated here and the Thai's just happen to be an outlet.  Thailand is not the best place for some.  it can be very challenging.

This guy is likely on meth or crank or yaba or simply an ignorant redneck

Also think some who grow up listening to Rap music become unnecessarily violent and deluded.

My generation grew up on Rock and Roll, Motown, and Pop and are all well-adjusted.  (Y)

Of course!

Trying to figure out what his user name is here.  Narrowed it down to a couple of dozen possibilities...

I think it’s 'Biro' 😂

why release him just black list him and stick him on the first available flight back to the US we don't need his type here .

He may be suffering from legitimate mental illness. Maybe evaluate him before the execution.

Sorry but the first thing comes to my mind is this guy has 2 young daughters

OMG at least save the child first and protect them removing the danger this guy is for them.

When he will be far from them, we can maybe see what we can do for him

Finally got around to actually watching the video linked in the OP.

Didn't hear any racist insults at all, maybe someone could tell me what they were?

Most common racist insult I see/hear in Thailand is 'farang'.

I don't even know any racist insults specifically aimed at Thais.

Did you watch all 3 videos, I think its the second one where he calls a guy a “ g@@k” and then goes on to say his “skin is like the ass of a cow “

When did Thailand have free speech?

 

Want special treatment like this guy? do the same thing;)
