Phuket Fears As News Of Another Stabbing Emerges

Recommended Posts

Not fishy, Slum and drug peaple all over the places. Also here in Pattaya. They are lazy to work, just stealing is easy. I got my own lesson. I got surRouded by 5 locals last Octobre. What chance do you hace without weapon? The problem is that we foreigners can't carry guns. In my home country i can do that. So we are just victims in this country. In my case police was useless.

Like I said in the other story of Aussie woman dying, after stabbed in the heart, it's time to start carrying some sort of weapon, farangs are easy picking for these ass_holes.

Which is why they work in twos or threes, and carry weapons. Not such easy pickings for them, on their own and unarmed.

I don't find anything 'fishy' about his story.

This is a real problem for Phuket's tourism sector, people are going to start giving the place a wide berth! My cousin who is 21 years old is arriving in Thailand next month, I have already advised him to avoid Phuket and Pattaya in the same way as I would the southern provinces.

The boys in brown need to sort this out quickly, not just catching the bike gangs responsible for these latest incidents but also sending out a clear deterrent to the others. If the tourist industry suffers then there's less tea money for the BiB =)

I find Mohamad's story very strange, seems something fishy about it.

Sounds like you're purposely aggravating readers to get a response. Seems to be working.

The only trouble I've had in a year of living in Thailand is someone trying to go through my backpack in a crowd as a "tailor" distracted me in Patong.

This stuff is only shocking because people have it in their heads that Thaiand is somehow a safe place- It's not.

Lots of desperate people + inept policing + active coverup of anything that might make the country look bad + a bunch of cash laden tourists with no clue what's going on around them. Not hard to see where that ends up.

Maybe you would find it less fishy if he was called Colin or Dave?

Up to you to think that way, I don't.

Just fishy that people approach him on a motorbike selling drugs, and they get aggressive when he drives off? Strange sales techniques. He claimed to be going home, 300 meters from the circle he gets stabbed after the road was blocked, very wide road there. I have no doubt he was stabbed, but would guess there is more to it than he telling at the moment. We'll have to wait and see though.

It's time for embassies to issue stern travel advisories against coming to Phuket, i.e. don't go there unless your trip is absolutely essential. Leave them on until police can demonstrate significant progress in cleaning up the gangs of thugs that prey on tourist pedestrians and motorcyclists, armed with guns, knives and clubs. Also clear up the jet ski scams , taxi scams and similar. The way to get government to act is by hurting them in the pocket.

I do not expect this comment to be posted but never the less I shall say my piece. The murder of Michelle Smith was indeed shocking in the extreme and needless. A senseless act by senseless people. Naturally we are all sickened by this mindless act of violence and unreservedly offer our condolences to her grieving family. But I would like to bring to the attention of the numerous government agencies be they Thai or foreign who have willingly expressed their sorrow and anger that there are many expatriates in Phuket at this moment living in fear of their lives from notorious Phuket crime families who have targeted them and no single Thai or foreign agency gives a dam_n. It is time for the real Phuket underbelly to be exposed to the world! I hope forums such as this open its channels of communication and allow us to pool our knowledge and take back Phuket before it sinks further into this cesspool of corruption ...

You just have to read the Bangkok Post to see what happens just between Thais let alone with Farang involved, people going out of their houses to complain about noise then being hacked to death by youngsters with machetes etc. Tourist deaths must be approaching 100 this year in Phuket alone, it seems like every day or so there's something in the newspaper.

That's what I thought . No motive, they can pull up beside him, talking so he can hear then he accelerates away from them , they (3- "somehow") get far enough ahead to stop, get off a bike, him sees them ahead waiting for him (wide road blocked with a moped) doesnt turn around and get out of there when 3 he presumes dealers are waiting for him ...AND All within 300meters of near where he started, (didnt say where they oulled up beside him - they had speed?
