Just to update.

Nothing has changed.

Life is worthless

Please dont give any more <deleted> one lines about how dangerous Thailand is.

Are you really trying to help or what?

Family now have the services of a Lawyer from Bangkok on the case. He tells them that they have a good case although it may take time.

Lets hope that matters can now be turned around and justice be done.

Good news from me for a change.

Well things will only get worse if the police are acting like this...

I wasn’t going to comment any more, but just in case there are any naive people left out there!

In Thailand, law enforcement is not a duty or a profession, is a money making machine for those involved.

From the lowly traffic cop, that unexpectedly stops you and asks for two hundred baht for some imaginary offense, to the highest echelon.

As you step up the ladder, the payments get steeper and discrete.

For starters any prospective employee, no matter what grades they passed or whatever, if they want to get hired must pay the station chief a stiff 5/6 figure number.

Therefore, if they do, on their first day on the job, they need to come up with extra curriculum money to make up for the bribe paid to get in.

Any thing major you want done, you must pay , at least this way, some unorthodox results can be achieved.

You all get the picture!!

Its been a while since there have been any developments with the murder of my wifes cousin.

As I posted last year , the family have clubbed together and brought in a lawyer from Bangkok.

Well.

The families of the murderers (who are still at school by the way) were hauled down to the court house in Korat this week.

Police present along with the lawyer from Bangkok.

I stayed out of the way as the last thing needed was a Farang hanging around, if you know what I mean.

Basically went like this...pay up to the tune of 8 saeng or some one will be going to prison.

It all sounds a mad to me as I would think some one should go to prison anyway for murder, but this is Thailand.

One of the kids involved has family ties with the police in the area, this is why no action was taken earlier, but now its out of their hands which is good.

I dont know how long it will drag on for but there is a growing feeling of revenge within the family, which would only cause more sorrow and trouble.

How sad. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

A terrible waste of a young life. For what?

This is a daily occurrance now in my home town of Melbourne, Australia, it is out of control with this type of senseless, violence, 99% of the time alcohol/drug fuelled. The scarey bit is they can't seem to do anything to stop it and the sentences that are handed out to the perps are laughable and are more than likely bound to encourage rather than discourage.

The chance of you being a victim of random violence, at night, in the city of Melbourne is extremely high. I wouldn't travel on public transport or visit city nite clubs and pubs without a large armed escort.

What a load of bull***A young man lost his life,not on a bike,on a confrontation with others young thugs.My regrets.

The family were offered 8 saeng,more as the going price,for the loss.

Lots of posts about how bad the crime is in other(more civilized?)countries.

Do you understand we are in LOS,not in Shangry la?

Many things are same as at home,only different.

Stay at home at night,double lock the door,go on TV and whine!The vampires are right out of your door! :)

OP, I do hope your family find justice and some kind of closure. Very sad.

Regarding some of the other posters arguments regarding serious crime statistics between Thailand and the UK.

http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_mur_...ders-per-capita

Thailand is currently No. 14 in the world for murders per capita with 0.08 murders per 1000. The UK is No. 46 with 0.014 per 1000.

As a reference, the US is No. 24 with 0.042 per 1000.

I make neither comment or judgement on these statistics.

Well the saga continues.

Having started this thread and due to the sensative nature of it I will up date what is happening now.

All are back in the court in Korat again for two days, there are numerous witnesses along with family members of the deceased and another boy who was badly injured.

The lawer from Bangkok also there, I was not as I have no place to be there and would,nt understand much anyway.

So there are 5 families that are to pay around 200,000 baht each or go to prison.

Four families have agreed, one has offered 7,000 baht for some reason,,maybe like prison or something.

All this comes around as my Mother in law was not prepared to not let it go, unlike the local police who really did,nt want to know. Amazing Thailand eh?

Its at court now for the second time.

Goes to show that its possible to get away with murder here.
