Scary. Your own country deports you to a third world country.

Scary. Your own country deports you to a third world country.

Why is this scary? The British court clearly had no reasonable doubts that the evidence would not have been enough to charge him with murder in a British court, if the murder had taken place there. The OAG will definitely not request the death penalty which very rarely applied in Thailand these days anyway, because there is no advantage for him to do so and risk the dismissal any future capital offence extradition requests from the UK.

It is true that the Thai warders will use their billy clubs effectively to tame the "pit bull" to their particular standards, if he is not polite and deferential towards them but UK prisons are not paradise either. But he could have thought of all that before he decided to brutally kill another man and deprive his loved ones of his life, purely for his own pleasure and ego stoking. In the fullness of time the extradition treaty will allow the "pit bull" to sample the hospitality of the UK prison system while serving the balance of a lengthy sentence there. The thought that he is unlikely to be relaunched onto society again until he is well into middle age and that he will be banned from Thailand for life after finishing his sentence is certainly welcome.

Wow, how come he cannot do the whole european human rights thing?

Good on Thailand for pursuing it

My guess is that if he had killed a non US citizen he would still have been in the UK.

Why do you think that? In this case I would trust the British courts to base their judgement on the evidence not the nationality of the victim. I fully believe that with the same evidence, which seems overwhelming, and a Thai victim the result would have been the same.

The people who run and control prisons have an almighty job and responsibility to deal with. All those men trapped and cofined together 24 hours a day for years.

There will be so much testosterone and anger and fear and many more emotions to deal with.

They walk a thin line and must keep control.

Sure they have guns and discipline but they cant go shooting all the inmates who break the rules.... Can they? Of course they cant because the world wouldnt stand for it.

So they will need to ensure the prison runs smoothly by other means including giving a "Feel good factor" to the inmates. They dont want a war or a rebellion or an uprising. They must avoid this.

So they use rewards and recreational activities and so on to keep the inmates focused on a positive direction.

I dont know but I am sure there will be Muay Thai competitions for the inmates to focus on and use up anger aggression and energy. A man needs a focus and a release. All forms of life need this.

So I imagine this Aldhouse guy will become quite popular if hes good at it ... and if he tries to do in there what he has done in Phuket he will be erradicated and put down.

My feeling is that once he is over the initial shock of being sent to Thai prison and he begins to settle into the pecking order he will become involved with their system and fit in pretty well with the flow of things.

You are clearly fairly new to the idea of Thai prisons I think.

Visit Youtube or pick up one of the many accounts of life inside Bang Kwang (Big Tiger) and then you may understand the reality of the Thai prison system.

Ok I will. Always did enjoy the "Locked up abroad" episodes.

Yes I am new to the Thai prison system (phew!) but I will educate myself at some point .... but right now it is pissing down with rain here where I am so I am off to hang out in a beer bar with the young ladies and tourists rather than rot in hell lol ...... Cheers.

Good luck Aldhouse old boy rofl. I mean we all have times when you feel like killing a man but YOU DONT ACTUALLY DO IT!! duh

Welcome back Lee.

Hope you brought your soap-on-a-rope, not something you want to be dropping anymore. rolleyes.gif

So inappropriate.

It is not the right of anyone in gaol to mete out punishment. This is the right of the courts only. In any country. Gaol should simply be a deprivation of liberty. To allow systematic abuse simply lets loose a very damaged person onto the community at large once they are released.

Get real !

Not before time. Welcome back.

Whatever sentence he gets, isn't it so that he will do 4 years here and the rest of his time in UK ?

Thats if he lasts 4 years !

Given that the vast majority of inmates do (and many far longer), not sure why he wouldn't.

It's disheartening to see how many wish to use this tragedy as an opportunity to make vacuous comments, and "jokes".

A life has been lost forever, and another for the time being. I'm pleased that this guy is facing justice, but some of the comments here seem to be written by the kind of mob who used to turn up at public executions to jeer at the condemned. Tasteless.

Now just "hang on a minute" Are'nt individuals entitled to an opinion without being accused of belonging to a mob ! That attitude belongs within a dictatorship.

1) No one was really accused of belonging to a mob. Read again.

2) The comparison made was no worse than yours to a dictatorship.

3) The attitude you speak was one of concern for civil rights and due process -- precisely what is NOT typical in a dictatorship.

1) I disagree - There is a clear accusation of mob mentality

2) Simply reacting to an unfavourable suggestion

3) What about the dead guy and his family?

And on Fridays they all get fairy cakes.

I agree people are entitled to opinions, but it's the tone of some of them here (and some have now been deleted by the mods) that count.

You have to ask yourself whether such a tragic story entitles people to start sharing their homoerotic jailhouse fantasies with the rest of us?

I stand by my original comment. If you don't like my use of the word "mob", how about tasteless rifraff?
