Phuket police having a bad week publicity wise. First urinating off a Maj Gen, now this.

 

Pretty poor shot though- 9 rds fired and one hit! Seems his card was already marked for something as he was already being transferred. Kicking him after shooting him shows a particularly nasty streak.

 

Anyone remember Constable Savage? 😀

What's the officially mandated closing time for bars on Bangla these days?  Apparently Cpl Pornthep Channarong was being denied admittance to Illuzion by the club's security because he was carrying a gun, just prior to 6am.

Civil Servants including Police, Military and the others connected to the glorious Thai state seem to be chosen by god. The chosen people can do no wrong.  It's surprising they don't commit even more crime.

Perhaps they do. It merely never makes it to the surface.

I think it's either down to nepotism, connections or negotiated price, God really does'nt figure!

The noodle vendor will probably be charged with using too much MSG and the policeman will get a promotion.
