Bangkok Metropolitan Police Deputy Chief Post Photos Of Drunk Drivers On Facebook

Recommended Posts

Are all these people convicted already? Guess not.. Wonder how many of them will be convicted, even the police admitted a few months ago that the breathalyzer wasn't accurate and lack of maintenance. Is it against the law posting these photos? If not, how about a Facebook page with photos of corrupt police officers.

So can we now post on FB pictures of corrupt cops?

Although I am against drunken drivers I don't think this is the right thing to do.

Guess which page would have more photos? But it WOULD be close. Both pages would overload.

They have taken the issue of drunk more seriously...because...they are putting the pics of drunk drivers on facebook?

This is wrong on so many levels...boy...where do I start.

a) if they take the issue more seriously, start with educating people on the dangers of drunk driving. Go to the schools and show children what happens, when you drink ...and drive! Make questions about responsible driving, part of a REAL drivers- license test.

b ) really enforce the law on drunk driving. Punish people severely if they are caught. And punish the BiB taking bribe money instead of issuing penalties.

c) so....suddenly it is okay to "name and shame"???

d) since when did FACEBOOK become part of the Thai- justice system?

...I could continue, but I feel so...tired....bah.gif

''start with educating people on the dangers of drunk driving.''

Perhaps this is how Thailand does its education..

''since when did FACEBOOK become part of the Thai- justice system?''

Right now.

Remember this is Thailand. Perhaps creating a ''losing face'' situation is how they think it might be more effective....

.

thanks for this post - you beat me to it!

For Thai's FACE is EVERYTHING.

Aptly named eh? Facebook?

Let's hope this campaign goes viral, then the message will get through.

Share it to all you can. Why not and it might help at that.

I suspect it is intended to be like posting pictures

of Johns busted for attempting to buy prostitutes,

who are really undercover vice cops.

Can you imagine them trying this here!

Saturday night outside of Posiedon,

perp walk all the phuyais and post that

on the Police General's web site... HA!

He'd get transferred to an inactive post

In Nakkorn Nowhere within the month.

OK well here is a better Idea-why not post the photos of all their OFFICERS who are drunk on Duty and driving,everyday..They may not have enough space-even on Facebook.

Yet again we see what a farce the 'justice system' is here.

I very much disagree with the many posts on this topic. I think that posting photos, of offenders against the law, is a good thing which can now be done through social networking sites.

At the end of the day the police are public servents who are employed by the public, through the government, to protect the populus. Why should the people not be aware of offenders against the public good? not everybody goes to court to hear about prosecutions or read any govenment information.

For me this is a fantasitc development - well done Thailand for being the first to do so.

I am sure this will come. When the govt of thailand pay a salary to police such that they have no need to take "tea money" to put their children through school
