I like them, they add a bit of spice to the area.

 

Really wish street food would come back to Sukhumvit. Miss those late night eating spots.

Did they ever leave? They are usually always lingering around the lower sois.

They were but they weren’t openly dealing drugs like they are again now.

So what's your point? Your deeply ingrained r@@ism just couldn't resist making a derogatory comment, could it?

As I understand it the reason behind the big 'round up' of a few years ago, was that when they began trying to 'expand' their horizons, try to encroach on existing (Thai) businesses, they outlived their welcome. Many businesses in that area had had enough. 

I also heard that they had 'missed payments' to local officials who used to turn a blind eye to their activities. They were becoming a nuisance which is a fact.

One lass I know told me recently they were starting to act as 'unofficial pimps' to the freelancers, to the extent they were approaching ladies and their 'johns' as they went to their assignations, demanding payments through menaces.

Most of the above is hearsay from people I know in that area, as I am a regular visitor there, when in Bangkok and have been for many years.

All told, they bought nothing of value to the area, were a negative factor, hence the fact that many were banned from local businesses in that area. I won't be surprised that under the current intolerant climate to ALL foreigners, there won't be another 'round up' again soon as they are hardly a low profile group. 

The only place you could have "heard this stuff" would have been on a barstool unless you have some amazing contact within the police force which you don't

Common sense dictates the bib are not going to discuss corruption Tactics with a farang.

Not in my experience (with regard to low level, business as usual corruption).
