One of those arrested told the media that this enraged the owner who demanded they stop filming and allegedly began swearing at them. The group then wanted their money back and a melee ensued.

Owner should have kept quiet.... now he has a room of his own to think about his actions!

I guess the operator didn't want photo evidence of the existing damage on the jet skis, which he no doubt would have tried to extort money for on their return !!! Normal scam 

Usually it's the customers getting beaten up.   Karma finally caught up with this jet ski operator.                                👍

I would think a lot of people who have been to Thailand would enjoy seeing a vid of a jetski guy getting bashed. Revenge porn of a different sort...

Oh no, looks like there has been another terrible misunderstanding. Drugged up kids?! … actually NO.  Reports now say …  18 of them tested clean, with two showing traces of drugs. Whatever traces are. :biggrin:  Basically they all were clean. It’s just terrible how these tragic misunderstandings happen and find there way into news article.. Oh, my.

 

Given the “misunderstandings” about this, in reporting this simple fact, who really knows what the fight was about. Just another day in LOS  :thumbsup:

In Ko Larn the scam is just the same.

I've seen a group of japanese tourists being threatened and extorted by jetski operators on Tien beach.
They where not allowed to leave until they payed a huge amount for so called damage.
 

Your post should shut up the nay sayers as he was innocent and there is no jet ski scam there. I believe they take opportunity when they see it.

Hi there, you come across as if you've just stepped off the boat or are being mawkishly green for some reason. I don't know what has previously been reported, but it's a pretty good bet that being 'enraged' and swearing at customers is a bit of a red flag and suggests the kind of operator he is. I'm not condoning it, but that is not normal Thai behaviour.

So getting angry and swearing at drugged-up customers is justification for beating his face to a pulp, yes?  

 

As far as I come across to you, did being rational not come into it?   The discussion I was having was whether this particular person deserved the beating as karma for something no one knows has happened in the past!  To suggest that he did deserve it with no evidence that he was a scammer is sure not normal!

Look more closely at the video. 

 

Why are defending jet ski criminals?  Do you have any idea how many people they have hurt?

justweird he questions and defends everything that has to do with thailand

ta158, perhaps you could tell me then how many people this specific operator has hurt, that is what is being discussed.  When you can do that, I'll back off defending this one man who was beaten to a pulp by 20 innocent, drugged-up tourists. 

 

If you bother to read any of my comments properly you'll see that what I question is, in fact, everything that has to do with illogical Thai-bashing!

I am not defending jetski criminals, I am defending this one man, against whom no evidence of scamming has been shown, who was assaulted by 20 tourists.  The tourists got a particularly good deal and they did not accuse him of scamming them.

Oh well, looks like you're the odd one out. 

No, he isn't.  But it does look as though you're also justifying violence against a specific jetski operator who was not, and has not been, accused of scamming anyone.  Well done.

Karma, he has many years of intimidation and cheating behind him. I feel no sympathy.

Someone else who has no evidence that this particular operator was guilty of that.

There was no scam in the incident that is the subject of this thread.  What you believe and what happened that involved this one operator appear to be two completely different things unless you can provide evidence that this man was a scammer.  Then I'll shut up.

So let’s say I want to rent a car. I agree on a price and hand over the money. Before I set off I inspect the rental vehicle for any pre-existing damages together with the owner. During this process I take some photos with my phone, just to make sure I have some proof of the damages. I am told by the owner that I am not allowed to take photos of the vehicle. He is adamant that I stop. I counter that under those circumstances I don’t want to rent his car, the risk is far too high. I demand my money back. He says no, arguing that our initial deal is still valid. The fact that I won’t use the car now doesn’t change his mind. 
 

I don’t condone violence but I can understand the anger of the renters. I also wonder about the presence of any kind of functioning law enforcement on Koh Larn.

what drugs did they test positive for? If it was weed they were more likely to be “drugged down”
