Siam Chon News reported on what they said was a pitiable case. 

 

They had come across a 70 to 80 year old Western man slumped in a wheelchair at Pattaya police station. 

 

The Thai public coming to do business at the police station were aghast and wanted the police to act. 

 

The didn't know what to do or say so got out their phones to record the man's plight. 

 

He was clearly in a state of distress, they said. 

 

Nearby on a chair were his soiled clothes and some shoes. They were unwearable. 

 

The media claimed he had been there for three to four days.

 

Posts on the story indicated that he was later picked up by social services and taken away in an ambulance.

 

Many posts from Thais on the story condemned the police for not acting sooner with several claiming they wouldn't help unless there was something in it for them.

People concerned that the police did not act sooner ha. What did they expect? Police only act if there is a financial benefit for them. Pathetic situation, shame on you Pattaya police,

Anyone getting on in years should think about an exit plan if ever they become ill as no one gives a toss about you in this country 

Surely seems to be a fact. They should feel ashamed, but unfortunately they do not recognize the word.

And that doesnt happen in the west, the elderly stacked like cordwood in homes because their families havent the time or inclination to visit?

Rather be in a care home than a police station

true, but you have to make it back there first. which means your probably already there paying taxes, or you saw the writing on the wall and bailed out early.

I doubt that his Western family, "banished" him to Pattaya.

 

Now, to the question of the BIB giving, apparently, "not a ****" about what happened to him while in their sight and "on their watch"............
