Immigration's BMW "Smart Cars" the latest tool to rid Thailand of illegal foreigners

Recommended Posts

This is being overly dramatic and naming it BMW shows how materialistic their thinking are.

 

In this internet age, a computer will suffice, no need for fancy names like BMW. It's just a lookup on a database.

The puzzle is why the people of the developed world leave home to find greener pastures in the 3rd world, undeveloped, sometimes uncivilised countries... 🤔

No puzzle. Pussy powwah.

Why not this kind of vehicle?

you will notice that I put the link of the site where I found the photo :

 

https://edition.cnn.com/style/article/dubai-police-supercars/index.html

I followed your quote and bearing in mind that Dubai is still a moslem country I read this a little way down the relaese.

 

Alongside the flashy cars, the Dubai police wants to tout its gender equality credentials by showing off the fact that many of the drivers are women. "The most expensive cars -- the Ferrari and the Bentley -- are driven by women police officers," said Sultan.

 

Thailand where women are supposedly equal to men has stopped recruiting women into the police force. I they ever were allowed into the traffic police they certainly would NOT be allowed to drive a BMW on their own, or even as a part of the crew. 

 

They should be employed in the police stations doing menial work like typing, filing reports, making the tea and coffee etc, you know the really vmenial work that men don't want to do.

 

(Sarcasm mode to off).

I thought (think) that they still recruit women, they just won't allow them to train as investigators and so on - so the "glass ceiling" is pretty low.

Peeples seem to overlooking the fact these vehicles are ultimately self funded by  fines imposed.

A Ferrari  might have been a desirable  but a lil bit over the top for  serous  Police "work". :)

I'm surprised at their lack of ambition, settling for BMW's. Why not go for smart Porsches or Ferraris instead?

So, other than they drove over there in the BMW, how, exactly, did the smart car help?

The fast thinking immigration officers used the BMW smart vehicle's GPS to find the Indian restaurant.  Great job BMW and the same goes for the immigration officers for taking a bite out of crime.  

 

Thai Visa should receive some type of award for publishing this crime story.  This is just another example of the threat foreigners pose to Thailand.  Let's double the 800,000 baht deposit in a Thai bank requirement, and make these people take a Thai language test before renewing their yearly visa extension.  That should clear a lot of these people out of here.

I had a home visit last year when renewing my marriage extension and the immigration officer turned up in one of these.
