Nobody cares. A farang's life is worth zero

An a slight tangent I've know personally about 20 suspicious deaths (murders) in my time here and not one Thai has ever received a jail sentence!!

if I really felt that way I'd be gone but then again I'm true to myself..

Seems to me that the murder is the real story here. Why isn't it being followed up on?

The writer of the article says that he died from heart failure.

What about the embassies in this story?

 

1) Where is the American Embassy? Did they actually allow the outright murder of an American citizen by Iranians in a Thai prison to go without investigation?

 

2) Did the British Embassy actually tell this guy to turn himself in, knowing he would be put in these conditions, rather than urging him to get the money for a flight out and paying the fine at an airport?

"Where is the American Embassy? Did they actually allow the outright murder of an American citizen..."

Nowhere does it say that he was murdered!

 

"Did the British Embassy actually tell this guy to turn himself in, knowing he would be put in these conditions, rather than urging him to get the money for a flight out and paying the fine at an airport?"

Of course they did, what else could they do? 

When he contacted the Embassy that is exactly what he would have been told to do, try to get some money sent to him.  The fact that he was told to hand himself in suggests that he was unable to do obtain funds and the British Embassy is not there to repatriate, FOC, deliberate overstayers.

If IDC knows these gangsters are picking on certain citizens such as US citizens they need to at least hold them separately.  The guy who died in his arms after being denied water and bullied by the gangs was 41 years old.  Here is his obituary. RIP. Obituary of Rickey McDonald  He was a guy who was educated and was loved, have some respect. 

 

 

on that obituary .  why would he ask that question if he already knows?

Hello. Did Rickey pass whilst in the IDC in Bangkok?

Rubbish if you obey the immigration law here, which is hardly difficult, you are NOT going to end up in the IDC

bit like obeying the road traffic act here.  How that work out for you?, pay the BIB off in the end.

Folk in glass houses etc.

we did not pay off the Police, the Mrs was charged for their mechanic to inspect the damage, the land traffic act has nothing to do with immigration law as far as I know

Why is his given name a Thai word? 

Kai is also an English name, derived from Saxon origin.

You are assuming that the Officers know or for that matter even care, judging by rep[orts over the years a sp[ellin the IDC is not nice and possibly it is like that to deter others. However they owe a duty of care none the less.
