Never once heard anyone say they were fined for littering when they didn't

You haven't been here that long.

This is one post you probably will struggle to apologise for Nisa hence your rather dull invented rambling pack of lies...

Been here a while and no matter how much you want to imagine the police going after people and accusing them of littering when the police know they didn't is a bunch of BS and you know it and so does everybody else.

And yes, they do go after foreigners and not Thai people on these litter stings and I personally have no problem with that. Chances are we can afford it and it ain't are country to be littering.

Which exposes it as a scam rather than enforcement.

and your point?

I now look forward to reading of tourist being fined for littering, not having their passports and general harassment from the BIB, this should hopefully discourage tourists from visiting the country.

I was thinking the same thing. This "safety zone" just promotes harassment from the people who are supposed to be stopping the harassers. Amazing Thailand. And I wouldn't post that if I didn't know friends who work in Bangkok who were picked up by police, or people posing as police, along KSR for not having a passport on them. A few thousand baht later, they were let go.

One incident I witnessed at MBK outside National Stadium was to observe the Police actually removing the litter bins from outside the BTS station in order to "catch" more tourists in their scam.

At least they were honest with you as to why they were removing the bins. Or am I wrong to assume they told you this was the reason as opposed to some other reason such as the worry of a bomb (why you see few public trash cans and the ones you do are usually clear) or some other investigative issue.

Investigative issues? You speak of them as if they are actually pro-actively performing policing duties however the reality is that they are poorly educated petty criminals in uniform that loiter in that area all day to scam and extort money from unsuspecting tourists.

As to how I know what the bins were removed that was quite obvious having stood there and witnessed the whole set-up for several minutes including the removal of the bins then the subsequent 'apprehension' of the first few victims.

You really have become an apologist for anything and everything recently including behaviour such as this which sullies Thailand's reputation and that of its people.

Nisa just makes it up as he goes along if he/she thinks they removed the bins for our "safety" and then the area was full of litter "police" shortly after....

OK, you love Thailand. You've been here a year but come on....get real....

So, assuming what you say is true... what is your point? People shouldn't be fined for littering if there is no trash cans in the immediate area? If so, is it also the police who should be blamed when they go undercover in the west and act like a drunk in the subway to catch people who rob them or when they leave keys in a parked car to catch people who steel the car?

But I am still a bit perplexed as to why these police, who you always want to remind us are lazy, lie, cheat, steal and don't care about the law or people and simply are after foreigners for their money, bother to even move the garbage bins? Why not just simply accuse foreigners of littering even though they didn't? Heavy Drinker says they do. So, if that is true then why bother doing extra work by removing the bins to actually catch people who litter when there are many innocent tourists around to accuse?

Nobody in their right mind would think a country like Thailand given its current state of development is going to not have more corruption than more modern societies but just don't get the need to exaggerated issues and/or acts as if one off incidents are the norm.

It really gets a bit old hearing some farangs constantly whine about being victims in Thailand for such nonsense things like small fines or paying more to go into a venue than a local. The average farang in this country has it sooooooooooooooo much better than the average Thai and it is just gets sickening to hear the constant whining and complaining about their miserable lives here and their constant focus on the negative while having an inability to accept the way things work here and to learn how to best be part of the community instead of constantly playing the role of victim at the hands of those who are supposedly less intelligent and inferior.

It's one thing to make the occasional joke and such but a complete other to constantly spread this negative cancerous hate like attitude on an on going basis.

People shouldn't be stalked and fined, nor set us as victims.

Thailand should have adequate facilities for disposal of litter.

They should not remove them and then flood the affected area with "police" looking to rip off tourists.

Do you see a pattern forming here or are you really that far removed from reality?

So do you have no negatives at all Nisa?

I'm not sure I understand ... why do you think they would remove the bins when just a few posts ago you said they have no problem going after people who don't even littler and accuse them of littering. One is extortion and one wouldn't even rate as entrapment in the west. Do you see a pattern here?

"The initiatives, which will also be implemented in nationwide traveler hotspots such as, Pattaya and Phuket, will pave the way for the Kingdom to hit its tourist revenue target of THB2 trillion in the coming years."

Ah ha! Explains a lot.

Of course, it's clear from the start this is economically motivated, what other possible explanation could there be?

The problem is that if there is any reality to this (I believe most of these have already been specially police safety zones for decades anyway) then the implementation will actually be done to help line the pockets of the corrupt BNB, not for the actual good of the tourist industry.

No one imagines they're doing this for the abstract principle of upholding the law for its own sake, that's just a silly irrelevant dream here.

Why RCA? It's dead during the day and pretty safe at night. The clubs, and RCA owners, provide excellent security throughout the avenue to protect their business.

Yes, but it is determined that one of them's not donating enough to the BNB's favorite charities, there are plenty of misbehaving underage kids around to provide excuses for another crackdown.
