well they were lined up inside of BigC mall this morning says my GF

Yes they were, thats to queue to get in that pink bank, to open a new bank account. Some Thai's mistakingly think that the money can only be paid into accounts at certain banks, whereas its all banks.

5 die in Q1 Thailand of the virus, and 67,000 die on the roads.  I can see the world is up in arms (not) about lowering deaths in LOS.

well seems the commandant has declared that all 7/11 type stores are to close at 10PM so that will shorten the hours the paramilitary can stand around.

 

Proactive Govt = create the problem, encourage specific reactions, then offer the solution/outcome they wanted in the first place. 

 

Reactive Govt = wait for a problem then overreact in all the wrong ways.

Yes . Sure :crazy:

I've talked to many guys over the years that were here 40 or so years ago....they all said the same, crime was rife then as nobody had any money...it's gonna be the same now with 10 million or more out of work with no social back up.

Put people out of work and scare the bee-jeez out of them, what a great way to suppress crime!

So the moron sends them out with assault rifles, just how dumb is he – sorry that was rhetorical

just a Thai official doing his job in a very difficult global crisos. He doesnt deserve your insults. And you, imo, dont deserve a visa to stay here.

Initially I thought the automatic weapons were a little excessive. Then again, this is gun-totting Thailand - who knows what the perps may pack, right? So yes, just about right with the big guns. Stay safe all.

Not excessive. Police protecting banks, gold shops, better safe than sorry.

I think not. They are meant to be closed at the moment. But then again....... TIT.

Just another photo shoot opportunity, they probably only went to the place where the pictures were taken then went back to the station

Probably a wise decision. With no work, no income, no food, the proverbial will be hitting the fan soon.

 

Though you have to wonder if the best decision to end hunger in Thailand is to shoot the ppr and needy

good grief. hunger makes an honest person looking for a job. Hunger makes a dishonest person a criminal. But even with a full belly, that person will do the crime. 

So YES no mercy shoot violent criminals.

Need on? lol. police are not yr staff or to hold yr hand. Solve yr own problems. 

Thailand is one ofthe SAFEST country i ever been in, day and night can walk without any hassle, forget yr bag or something and most likely somebody will return it to you.

Police are excellent here in Thailand to keep the streets safe. Oh and if you dont see them, thats bc the police drives in regular pickup cars plainclothes patrolling the streets, ready to jump out and bag the mf.

I would like to know how many Corona Virus deaths were officially put down to "pneumonia" especially in the early stages.
