Australian Murdered In Petchabun


Recommended Posts

Going back many years I can remember when the first Indian immigrants arrived in England.

At first the very few that lived mostly in the big cities including London were mainly Indian restaurant owners and workers and was considered somewhat of a novelty and the native white population tolerated them and treated these people with respect.

Then during the 1970s the British government relaxed it`s policies on Immigration and suddenly brown people from all over South Asia and many from Uganda began immigrating to England in droves.

Then everything changed, the unions called for strikes fearing the loss of jobs to Asians and there was frequent and violent attacks on Asians including actual riots in many parts of the country.

My point is that I don`t believe the permitting of too many people of a different race and culture into a country is a good thing. It has been proven that multiculturalism doesn't work and will lead to conflicts.

During my time here in Thailand I am seeing more and more farangs even in the most remote areas and as I see the situation, this can only cause problems for the farangs already living here, the same as what happened in the United Kingdom 40 years ago.

one thing to remember though is that resentment from the local white population was also due to the immigrants claiming benefits and also having a job that the British person could do. In Thailand these factors do not come into play. But if i was a Thai man maybe i would not like a farang with a thai woman, or the ''money'' a farang has. These could and do cause strong anti farang sentiments

I hate to say it, but I think we and Thai Visa are the victims of a hoax.

1. I Have researched all breaking news in the Nation and B Post for the past 5 days and there is not a single mention of this story yet there are plenty of accounts of other murders and abductions of westerners which did not even occur in Thailand.

2. I have extensively researched Google worldwide, Google Thailand ( for results in English and Thai)and Google Australia and there is no sign that such an Australian man with this name ever existed.

4. No cover up can be that effective in this day and age.

3. An American citizen bearing exactly the same name, (Ronald Wayne Martin), recently passed away in the USA and a condolence website has been opened. I venture to suggest that the name was lifted from this source.

If I am wrong - then I apologise, but I'd bet money that the OP is a troll. He started the thread twice under different names to enhance credibility.

What think you?

You maybe right and hope you are. I have searched all the Aussie media for a story and there is nothing. Normally if an Aussie is even injured overseas it makes the papers in Australia. If an Aussie is murdered it makes the 6 o'clock news but nothing.

Is this link and video a hoax to then ???? http://www.ch7.com/n...=2&p=5&d=121119

Sorry I don't know if that link is a hoax I can't read thai. Do you have an English transalation? What is the video about

Sorry for the terrible translation but this is what google throws up.

This villain is Mr Chet Phu 39 years of age were arrested at the home of the mother at Lam Luk Ka. Pathum Thani Province. Police to control the proceedings before the Police Station. Bung Samphan Phetchabun province. Hold no brief with a shotgun registration number. The shoot, Mr. Ronald Wayne Martin, age 59, Australian Married to Thai women. Wikipedia free e Chi villa No. 20 / 1 Moo 3, Tambon Wang Pikul Bung Samphan district on 4.

Last January before fleeing to find a mother Pathum Thani Province.

From the investigation it was found that the accused had neurological symptoms. And was hooked before. The story does not have or know much about the death BeforeTransfer. But hate the foreigners are the cause.

My apologies, I have now seen the Channel 7 video and there is no doubt that a man alleged to be an Australian citizen called Martin was killed in Petchabun on 7th January.

Stoneyboy's translation is good enough to get the gist of what is alleged to have taken place.

I am even more amazed than ever that this story has not been taken up by the Thai English language press and the foreign press.

About 15 years ago there was a shooting in Chiang mai, as follows:

- Shooter was a policeman who rushed into CM airport and shot the first farang he saw, who was standing in line to check-in neither party had ever seen each other before.

- Farang was seriously wounded but not life threathening, had to be hospitalized for a few days

- Newspaper reports indicated that the policeman was asked why he rushed into the airport and shot the first farang he saw

- Policeman said that he shot the farang becuase he discovered his minor wife was having an affair with a farang, and decided to shoot the first farang he saw as some form of retribution

- Asked whther he thought it was 'fair' to shoot someone unknown because of the actions of a different person, his reply was, 'it doesn't matter because it's just a farang'

- Policemans superior officer was also interviewed and was asked about the behaviors and attitudes of the offending officer

- Superior said, 'I agree with him, it's a farang so it doesn't matter'

- Never heard anything further

If you really observe your surroundings,we arn't really liked here,we are tollerated , don't bite the hand that feeds you, it may sound hard, but it is so sad that Thailands dislike for farangs is a growing trend,i know this opens a large can of worms,but observe,,back to the point, there, are dickheads all over the world,shooting inocent bystanders, RIP mate.

FARANG

I have tried to explain this word in this forum but someone (I think with the name Chonburi) deleted it from the forum. It is history – Thai history that is – and there are always people that object to history that is not glorifying. Oh well, such is the life of a Researcher Without Borders. (RWB)

What think you?

It might help if you read post 10 in this thread:

I couldn't find anything in Thairath online either but did find a little on the Channel 7 news.

Apparently the killer is a 39 year old man, Mr Wichet Phuchamkat นายวิเชษฐ์ ภู่จำกัด, from Patumthanee province with previous drug addiction problems. The murder took place on 04/01/11 and he was later arrested after fleeing back to his mother's house in Lam Luk Ka district in Patumthanee province, along with the seizure of an unlicensed handgun.

There's a video of him in police custody here:

Bettle,

You have quite obviously never been to the United States, where multiculturalism is a way of life.

For Example, California went from a state that was predominantly 'European' (***) to a State that is now 51% ethnic, yet people in most towns intermix without problems... I lived in one neighborhood for 18 years, with Mexican Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans and both Indians and Native Americans, all living on the same street. The only complications ever requiring Police assistance seemed to be situations of one ethnic group upon their own members.

*** The stars are for me to remind everyone that predominently men moved to places like Canada, the US and Australia - usually a ten to one relationship of men to women. Therefore, most Americans, Canadians and Australians have some local ethnic ancestry...

Maybe you'd better leave then and help reduce the pressure...

"It has been proven that multiculturalism doesn’t work and will lead to conflicts." Maybe in the UK, but Canada is an example of a peaceful multicultural society. Yeah, there were growing pains in the 70s as in Britain - though Canadians, being a somewhat less warlike people than the Brits, we didn't have fully-fledged riots - mostly harassment and social ostracism. But it all simmered down after afew years when the ever-tolerant white people slowly realised that they weren't being invaded by hordes of apes who intended to take over their country.

So what proof can you show that multiculturalism "doesn't work"? Is that based on any sort of relevant study, or is it just something you pulled out the hat based on your own observations?

Maybe he's thinking of, say, Yugoslavia - possible the ultimate proof. People need to realize the world isn't just about English speaking nations. Having said that, I suspect Aboriginal people would cite Australia as a good example too...since they were largely wiped out and they hardly get a good deal nowadays.

But I do think some nations and ethnic groups integrate better than others - to make sweeping generalisations is probably wrong.

I am not sure as to where you come from,but i am guessing you are a from the UK,can you please to explain to me why the continued influx of new Expats to Thailand should have such an adverse effect of those already living here,do you feel you have more right to live in the Kingdom as you have been here longer ?,seems to me that is what you are saying and infact appear to be rather up the arse that your bonfire has been pissed on by others reaping what you have for years.

RIP Aussie guy its all part of living in Thailand i suppose.

But thanks to the American who claims Multiculturism has worked there you made me laugh please take your head out the sand, its pretty much the same in Canada aswell .... but to infer its just because Brits are full of anger as one obvious racist commented is laughable.

Beetlejuice has a point that we whiteys are more and more noticeable no matter where you go in Thailand, farang taking the wife of a Thai is going to cause resentment, im sure its happened 1000s of times before.

RIP too, to say this incident is a pisser is putting it mildly!.

Bung Sampan Amphur is next to ours, there are a few Aussies at the market crowd at Wichien on Thursdays plus some at the Golf club in Phetchabun city, they might have known him.

Though I have not heard of him, saying that, there are stacks of ex-pats/foreign visitors just now.
