PHUKET:-- A tourist has been lambasted for graffiting a section of rocks at Nai Thon beach which went viral over social media yesterday (Feb 27) and alerted police to the crime.

 

The person believed to be the culprit, a Russian national, was identified via Facebook and Instagram posts that showcased photo evidence of identical handiwork to that which appeared at Nai Thon.

 

They also shared the same personalised tag name ‘dem51’ that appeared on the rock graffiti.

WHAT the HELL is wrong with people? While I was in the Navy on the USS Enterprise (CVN 65), we were warned EVERY time we pulled into a port of double jeopardy - if we did something stupid like this, we would suffer the wrath of the country we offended THEN we faced equal or more punishment from the Navy. No one considers consequences any more. 

Yep, same here. When we left the base, and IF someone did something stupid ( aka illegal ) and got caught....first he/she was nailed in Civy court. Then, after all was said and done, the "criminal" was charged again on the base. Another meaning of 'double time.'

He concluded with a stern warning: “We are responsible for the protection and maintenance of the National Park and this kind of act of vandalism will be punishable with a fine not exceeding 500 baht.”

NOT Exceeding 500 Baht...........A pathetic slap on the wrist..........

In the U.K......................

"Under the Criminal Damage Act 1971, anyone caught doing graffiti can face a prison sentence of up to ten years or fined if the damage costs more than £5,000."
