Police were aware of the ongoing dispute and he was confident of arresting all of the men involved in the shootout very quickly, he said.

So lame...

to be CONFIDENT TO ARREST the others... what planted?

It makes me want to me want to choke how casual law enforcement is... to take it so casual... what would have happened if bystanders would have been the way...

time and time again when someone, specially foreigners get popped... they are so relaxed. yet this is town is at least 1/2 farangs...

I don't know why Thai's are so jai yen yen even to life threatening events...

I think the government needs to be more astringent on its own people... get serious.

Might help the current problems that are so out of control in the political arena.. red, yellow...etc... get tough guys!

Change the name of LOS to Mafia land... Gangsta's (maybe scarface, al capone are around somewhere)

Okay Okay alright already I got my tough pills out what a bunch of belly ache's. God how many times I almost died in the surfing, racing in the war and from girl friends. Went home to California to check my house went down to my favorite bar for a drink and to see old friends and some guys car had broken down in front of the bar(it was on the street) a customer an ex GI buddy of mine from Nam days went to see if he could help them so they shot him and drove away turned out they had been doing that all night and had shot 5 people already. Went home another time and went to opening of an old bar Jack London used to drink at when I left i got a little lost trying to find the freeway entrance I noticed a car coming down the street towards my truck it was going awful slow suddenly all these guns sticking out of the car opened up on a house they were passing. Then just as I got to the house, the house opened up on me in my truck thinking I must have blasted them. Oh well peddle to the metal and I was gone.

God surfing sure can be dangerous so is driving a motor bike, how about having a few wives, heh do you want to sell land with me that sure can get you shot.

Anyways such a nice night tonight and all you unhappy people with nothings better to do but complain. In case you havn't noticed no where is perfect and if you don't like it here leave, it sure was nice when there was only a few of us guys living here years ago, it seems all of you coming has brought problems money and success usually brings problems. In fact when I came to Phuket the jail was empty a friend of the kings pointed this out to me. Years later he said now the jail is full and over flowing, he said all the gangs had moved to Phuket. So if you don't like it here leave we won't miss you.

Anyways night swimming has sharks but its a good time to spear fish, Canadian Richard never missed many nights out spear fishing he used to drop bags full of fish off at our house yelling as he drove bye and throwing the bag which we shared among the neighbors. Yes he finally died after falling off his motorbike while drunk and going home to sleep severe concussion.

Yes life is what you make it, I think I will go swimming tomorrow and for a nice walk and maybe work on my old Hot Rod and play with my grand children.

gimme a break. i lived for 25 years in venice beach california & saw more than my fair share of murder and mahem. but that doesn't stop the touristos from decending on the beaches from all over the globe every single summer. nor does it dissuade the east coasters and europeans from flooding out en masse to glom on to property and artificially inflate the value of real estate 'cause they all want a piece of "sunny southern california". it became one big obnoxious melting pot of gangs and affluent snobs & it made me sick. it's the real reason i now call the u.s.a. my ex-country (that and the presidents "bush"). the majority of people posting here need to quit being so frikk'n sarcastic and/or whining & get a real life... enjoy what you've got or simply get the hel_l out of thailand for all the smack talk your laying down. what happened in phuket happens every day in most populated spaces on this planet. get real for christ's sake...

Beautiful day to day in Phuket went for a nice walk at Cape Lam Promthep great wind not hot some people flying remote controlled gliders in the wind it was fun to watch. Sea had some nice surf today. Watched my granddaughters playing tonight at home and enjoyed the evening. Life is what you make it!

Yes you right.

People in Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel love their life and enjoy it, until one day they take a bus or go to the market or shopping center or just for a walk and get blown up or shot.

Life is what you make it, but when people go on holidays they go to sunny weather and warm water they do not go for holiday to end up in the middle of the gun fight-day time-in the city center.

Interesting that because no farang is mentioned,its all a big laugh, someone died.

But this has to be the farongs fault... If farong not come to thailand then the property would not be so vaaluable, and the good buddist thais would not become so infested with greed. therefor thai way of thinking is that it is farong fault...

Another blow for the tourism industry ,

Right now a lot of Scandinavians start their vacation to Thailand , and most of them goto Phuket.

Maybe not for long.

Australians already are very wary of Phuket, British wary because of the airport extortion case, then Danish just the other day.

It seems Thailand seems to make some kind of negative news on monthly basis where the main story is about either extortion of foreigners or how unsafe the country is.

Keep it up Thailand!

Yup, the Airport closure was chum change to all of this.

Lousy shots. Eight guys and they only hit four of each other. Somebody needs accuracy training.

Assuming they were using pistols and from any sort of distance, try using one yourself and see how accurate they really are. Those 'Wild West' shoot outs you have seen on the movies are a myth. Depending, of course, on the number of shots fired It was perhaps a pretty good hit rate.

Soon to be the hottest selling item in Patong

It's a TV Farang gang plot to reduce the number of Farangs in Thailand :)

Who in there right minds would want to holiday with there family in a resort ( ha ha) where the mafia run the roost and curruption and scams are the norm. From now on its back to greece for me no chance of getting caught in a gangland shootout on kos or Rhodes. I pity the falangs that have to live in patong and have to put up with that crap day in day out. Even if you do make a succses of something your threatened to hand it over or else. When is the mafia Tuk Tuk boss getting his extra 170 new tuk tuks he has requested. Simple question to the thais reading this = scammed at the airport with the full jurisdiction of the police, no action taken yet on this practice to ease falangs worry's double priced because we are westerners, treated as illegals if we live there, and have to report montly like a common criminal , and the latest shoot outs in a populer resort during the daytime, what would have happened if a falang child would have been hit, you just dont give a toss its just money and greed. When this hits the uk and it will it will drive your nail further and it is what you deserve LOS more like land of scum.
