Samut Prakan police have launched a manhunt for members of student gangs that clashed on Monday night and attacked each other with knives, clubs and pen guns.

 

The owner of a shop nearby said the gangsters had showed up demanding knives, but the shopkeeper refused and managed to record the incident.

 

The clip shows some 20 people dressed in the uniforms of two rivalling vocational institutes showing up with arms and charging at each other.

 

Police said the clip will be used as evidence to track down the offenders, adding they should all be arrested soon.

 

Locals have told police to visit the area more often as they are afraid a similar incident may take place and they could be harmed by the gangs.

now isn't that more fun than protesting?..

 

These "vocational" students are the students likely to be recruited/hired to attack the protesting ones.

 

"Its membership consisted mainly of discontent young unemployed, vocational school students and high school drop-outs."

Student gangsters, a new type of syllabus.

Not really. This has been going on as long as I can remember. One time along with their usual street battles they stopped traffic around Siam Square as they fought in the street in front of tourists who were probably wondering where the land of smiles was, other times they pull people off of buses and attack them. They use knives, machetes, guns, grenades, anything against 'rivals' from the wrong school. And the usual action from the authorities is to close the schools involved for a week.
