Phuket Mob Violently Bounces Aussies From Kangaroo Bar

Recommended Posts

Please do not judge us on the example simple1 used, that was in Victoria and they are all crazy drunk on VB down there.

That was an amazing example simple1 used. This line from that story really caught my eye.

"Magistrate Michael Coghlan said Ramsay had been "itching" for a fight that night........"

Who the hell in their right mind "itches" for a fight??? Strange stuff.... If you are tough, and a fight comes up, then jump right in and go for it. But to plan for a fight makes no sense to a normal person. Unless.......you win every fight, so then it is fun. But I guess that would make the person a bully. :-)

You seem to be overlooking a few things.

1. The drunken scumbags were the perpetrators here.

2. The drunken scumbags got exactly what they deserved.

3. Defending the drunken scumbags is a bit ludicrous, mate.

You're the one being ludicrous here, mate....

I've overlooked nothing. Assuming the report was 100% accurate and they are guilty as reported, they did not deserve a deadly attack from a mob. They "deserved" to be restrained and arrested - that's it.

My point was about the assault on them being deadly. Yes, they did survive but it could have resulted in death.

Would they have behaved in the same manner in Australia they would have been most likeley locked up but bailed on their own reconasciance to forgo bail and the matter laid to rest ..except their local rag picking up on the story to gain publicity,,

Ok, so assuming they are guilty as reported and this occurred in Australia, what do you think the appropriate punishment should be for something like this in Australia? A public flogging?

Uh, excuse me, perhaps a better example - Japanese?? Koreans? Singaporeans? Malays? Indonesians? Any nationality of Africans? Any nationalities of Central or South Americans? No, not really. Certain nationalities seem to be interestingly overrepresented in these things. I attribute it to cultural arrogance -- aggression and of course drink.

This occurred at the Kangaroo Bar in Phuket, a very popular Australian tourist destination. Obviously Australians will tend to be "over represented" compared to most other nationalities as far as getting drunk in Phuket is concerned.

Australian tourism to Thailand has increased due to the improvement of exchange rate. 2009 AUD-THB was about 24. For most of the last year until recently it was well over 30... whereas other currencies have tanked and tourist numbers have dropped in recent years. There are a lot of Australians getting drunk every day in Phuket.

People can't see this. All they can see is an incident involving Australians and immediately jump on their "I hate Australians" bandwagon.

@ tropo , I am surprised you even responded to that "ludicrous" comment from BradinAsia. He seems to know a lot about what happened that night, perhaps he was there. Likes the term "drunken scumbags" as well, takes one to know one.

I am beginning to think these guys found a bottle of Bundy rum that night and the rest is history.

They got what they deserved! I have no sympathy for drunk, rowdy, stupid tourists from any country. Send them packing.

You will not likely find many folks would agree with your overly forgiving view of a couple worthless hoodlums.

The assault on them was very appropriate. Sometimes "instant karma" is so sweet.

Isn't it ironic that all these businesses selling booze will beg (advertise) for customers to come and drink their booze and then when they get too drunk and rowdy they'll throw them out on the street like trash or even "punish" them first - their best customers.

Drunks are the biggest spending tourists. They (businesses profiting from them) need to learn how to handle them the way they deserve to be handled - with some human dignity. They're partaking of legally sold drugs which alter mental state, yet once they've spent a small fortune on their alcohol they'll kick them to the curb.

We went through this for decades in Australia... bouncers beating up drunk customers and on some occasions killing them. This (death) happened twice where I used to live. Now they cannot assault a customer but need to restrain them. This requires some training but is necessary for them to attain a licence. As if the Thai mob in Phuket gives a shit. There's a lot of racial hatred that cannot be restrained if they have an excuse to let go.

Curious....What do you think is the cause of this supposed racial hatred by the Thai mob?

I'm not interested in analysing the cause as that would be way off topic. The reason should be fairly obvious.

The point was that many of these street mobs don't need much of an excuse to get stuck into visiting foreigners. They always work in packs.

May I suggest you open your eyes and take off your rose coloured glasses.

And yes, these type of incidents do occur all over the world. Where did I Indicate that this only happens in Thailand?
