Does that mean that they were trusting criminals before?

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

In the Philippines Almost every security guard is packing at least a shotgun, and often much more. When you got to convenience store there, you always see armed guard(s) in the front of the store

I am not aware any measures have been taken to support people who are suffering this lock down. Where are the food banks, soup kitchens, any welfare benefits at all ?

Why would they charge the store? They can get free coffee,maybe. 

It'll be fun around Half eleven when they've all been on the Lao cao........   Make the bouncer in Samui look like small potatoes........

There isn't enough police on payroll in Pattaya that can protect all the places the ones that are now are paying for the protection sounds familiar?  People actually think police here is the same in the West? My neighbor/renter just came home a contracted police been working hard came by to pay up on his back rent, that is how I found.

Seems to work well there, armed robberies are fairly rare.

Exactly. I have not been in a few years but that's how it is. Nobody on an unlicensed motorbike with helmet on walks in.

that is more of a concern at this point - to feed those who cannot afford to buy basic foods.

Why not make it a permanent feature.

 

Sure to boost tourism. Can just imagine the new TAT ads.

note  lack of  1  metre  spacing

Actually it's supposed to be 2 metres.  It always was around the rest of the world and Thailand eventually caught on to that only this week!
