Phuket Fears As News Of Another Stabbing Emerges


Recommended Posts

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

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

That's what came to my mind at first: Maybe just "fishy" because of his name ... poor mentality. Sorry

This thought says a lot about your way of thinking. You're right, thinking that others think that way because you do is a poor mentality.

You are the one to start this line of talk. Had you have been more specific as to what in his story didn't seem right to you then you wouldn't be wide open to racial criticisms.

What's fishy about...."Mr Edwa was treated at the Phuket International Hospital for a stab wound to his side."

Exactly and I bet the perp was smiling as he pushed the blade in. it's not called "landof smiles for nothing"

I am very glad I live in Chiang Mai yes we have some crime here but no stabbings and very few muggings. No real scams or rip offs. All in all very nice friendly people and merchants. As my Thai friends tell me "the darker the skin the hotter the temper".

I remember when Phuket was a wonderful and Kata Noi beach had just a couple of bamboo restaurants where you could get a lobster lunch, beers brought to you on the beach, no lawn chairs just your own blanket or towel and ladies giving massages. How things have changed. Now I go to Koh Lanta, much like Phuket used to be.

Cheers,

Randy

50 crack officers from BKK with NO financial interests in keeping the crime momentum of Phuket in place.

WOW!!!! They really mean business this time...

The poor victim must have been connected to the travel and tourism industry or something to provoke this amount of positivity from the Thai authorities.

Had she been a banker or something else, could we expect this sort of action?

Never happened for all the other victims. Soon as it happens to someone that has an influence on the amount of cash flooding into the kingdom, then they finally act.....lol

Only in Thailand.

As reported by the Brisbane Times... Looks to me like the Aussie media are going to jump all over every crime against tourists.

I will retort what i said in a similar thread. "Australians make up a large % of tourists in Thailand".

The best TAT can come up with in response is.. I doubt it will impact tourism" and Bangkok is #3 destination in the world".

Not exactly humbled by this are they? Maybe an apology to the families of the victims and a reassurance that they are going to do all they can to prevent repeats happening.

Sorry to say, but TAT as so many other official authorities in Thailand = BRAINLESS... whistling.gif ( i wish i could say i'm a kid as they always say the truth...)

So if the name is not British one can not say it sounds fishy, but if the name if British one can?

I clearly explained what IMO is fishy a few posts later, the racism thing did not even enter my mind.

But people can accuse me of racism all they want, there is something very fishy about his story.

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.

...Law or no law..carry a gun, f_ _ _ _ _s will run like scared rabbits when you pull it out...or rather cockroaches, same thing. They don't want to basically reduce crime to a great degree, if decent people were able to carry guns. Law or no law, a responsible person should be allowed to carry, period. I do and continue to do so, even though I could take all five of them out, without usnig it...but hey, it's easier and more convenient. In addition, it's fun to watch their/his eyes bulge out, when they see my .45 or 9 mm, pointed right at their/his f_ _king head(s)

Its funny how Thai Visa always posts the few bad incidents about Phuket, but hardly any about Pattaya or other tourist destinations. The same stuff or maybe even more incidents happen in Pattaya but somehow I never seem to read about them, except for an occasional story once a week or so...

I inderstand the posting of a murder is serious, and I don't question that, but the general image given of Phuket is bad, while in reality it is NOT. 95% of the tourists have has a great holiday, and would come back anytime,... You can never satisfy them all

I live and run a business in Phuket, and in the past 4 years nothing has ever happened. At most a bar brawl with some drunken guy but that can happen anywhere.

Stop giving Phuket a bad name... I know its not the ideal paradise, but thenagain no where in Thailand, or maybe this whole planet will you find the ideal paradise location... All my customers and friends feel very safe on this island and as long as you behave, the Thais will leave you pretty much alone, except for the Tailors, Tuk Tuks, and Ping Pong idiots. Of course you always have your trouble makers, which when intoxicated, feel invurneable, and those big, bad mouthing farangs learn the hard way from the locals... But wouldnt the same happen in our home countries???? Yes it would...

It is because around 8 months ago the staff decided to crack down on seriously negative posts about Pattaya.
