Stupid sod, why overstay and then get problems?

Bit different headline this time, he was visited at a house.

Last time a truck load of  immigration ....Swooped on the overstayers.

 

Well, ya know them. They love to appear 'mighty'. Words like 'swoop' makes them look, feel (and probably believe!) they belong to some elite special-force tactical-unit thing. Like in the movies. Like eagles swooping in on a prey. Personally, it's more like house robins yeeping, if I'm honest.

 

Anyway, didn't their boss (not sure if it's Big Oaf or another guy) call on them to NOT scare away tourists and their money? So I guess they thought 'visit' is less scary than 'swoop'.

 

:burp:

It's getting more like East Germany, when the Stasi had everyone spying on everyone else,while I am against overstayers,they seem to be going over the top,asking the public to be basically s

More than a bit of hypocrisy going on here. Thais tend to treat laws as if they were meant to be broken. Reporting one of their own could lead to ugly reprisals. But some poor old falang overstayer. . . 

 

Just imagine if we expats ratted to Plod about every scooter rider we saw not wearing a crash helmet or yacking on a mobile. We'd never have time for 'owt else.

 

 

How Thai´s treat their laws has nothing to do with how a foreigner should treat them, is you do not believe that is the right way of course.

We have not been asked to do that, have we? Just imagine if we had, then all Thai haters on this forum would be standing in every corner writing numbers and reporting.

I agree about the murderer, but how would you "know" the farang was overstaying?

How would it matter "how" you knew?  If you don't know anything about someone's visa circumstances mind your own business!

The headline mentions 'big Oud's hotline' but it's still unclear as to whether the hotline was actually used in this case. 

It's more likely that they filed a TM30 from the guesthouse online which flagged his overstay and triggered the immigration response.

 

This is why they do the TM30 after all, to keep tabs on us.

How easy is that? Are you really soo naive that you think it´s the common guy on the street or the noodle seller that reports an overstayer? Now you have to think outside your small box, boy.

What about when a foreigner check in at a hotel? Many are stupid enough to show their passport. (Yes, I know! Extremely stupid, but so is overstaying. Goes hand in hand, I guess)

 

What about a foreigner check in and tells some incredible story about not having his passport with him when it´s right in his saddlebag around his waist? Creates suspision, wouldn´t you say?

For example a travel agency many times asks for passport, if you are stupid enough to rent a motorbike as well as when you need do do soemthing in your bank. They will want to see your passport.

 

I am sure there are also many other ways it can be very visible.

"How easy is that? Are you really soo naive that you think it´s the common guy on the street or the noodle seller that reports an overstayer? Now you have to think outside your small box, boy."

It appears there are a few posters in this thread who feel your quote is insulting.

I know I'm asking 'a pig to fly', but is there any chance you might come down from from your ivory tower to offer an apology?

How would you know that's the case?

If he had any other criminal record It's more than likely the Imm police would have held a press conference with about 20 uniformed participants smiling in front of a mega plastic crime board!
