Phuket Mob Violently Bounces Aussies From Kangaroo Bar

Recommended Posts

looking by these pictures it seems there may be more to the story with all the hugging happening. Especially the pic where he didn't want to let go of his "mate"

Absolutely brilliant!!!

Thai logic (an oxymoron if ever there was one).

The police have handcuffed the guy with the broken leg clap2.gif and not the guy with just a gash over his eye clap2.gif

They come act like fools, they think that it's ok to disrespect people and act like they are better than the local people. This happens in this country too often with both Brits and Aussies. They should take away there visa exempt status to visit the country. Make them get tourist visas to come here.

They should definitely do something but I don't know that your proposal would change much. Compulsory education means that they have enough brain power to fill in a tourist visa application. Idiots like these two should be registered on a "Not allowed to travel" list.

Yep, really gives us Aussie's a bad name. Such a shame. Usually it is the kids coming over for their first or second trip to Thailand, getting drunk and thinking they are better than everyone else. Happens all too much in Phuket which makes me avoid it and hit Pattaya instead for a break - and that is saying something!!!!!

One very good reason why I and many others give Patong a wide berth!!

Yes, you are right. The same reason I do not go out in Germany in my hometowns party mile. But you may believe or not: It is not Thailand!

I don't believe this story. Some things don't add up.

ALL MOB BEATINGS that I have witnessed in Thailand are Thais, who join in punching, kicking, and stomping after the fact, with no sense of hesitation.

The fact that XXX Disco is brought up makes me wonder if they were in, and kicked out.

I would not be surprised if the two were drunk and argumentative. That wouldn't be enough to warrant a beating that leads to a broken leg.

Don't expect them to even hint at the truth until they are back in Oz. Until then I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. The Bangla area is prone to mob beatings because of the high number of Thai men in the area, bouncers, tuk tuk, motorcycles, etc.

Interesting story. Made so by the fact that the "mob" was not clearly defined.... Would be curious to know if it was other farang patrons at the bar, or local Thai guys. Looks like they would have pissed off both groups, with the ashtray attack on the American and slapping the bar girl. Impressive to break the guy's leg in a street fight, must have used some furniture on him. And after seeing the photos, it seems to once again solidify the link between excessive tattoos and mindless drunken violence. Regarding their injuries, som nam na !!!!!!!!!

They where warned by Thais & farang alike - they didnt heed the warning!

Tattoos have got nothing to do with it! NO more than singlets or board shorts do!

very true..you can also add nationalities to above...piss heads are just that!!!

I have found the Rawai area to be far more dangerous in terms of drunken moron tourists than Patong.

Similarly, Lamai attracts a lot more of the "wrong type" than Chaweng.

It's odd that these fellows who do this more often than naught seem to be built like a Hino Truck and look like Og the Caveman. I could set a beer can on that man's brow alone and it would remain there soundly. I wonder if these guys are on steroids or something and their minds are already on the fringe; simply waiting for a few pints of alcohol to trigger the reaction. I do not recall ever seeing or reading about a 70 Kilo man resorting to the same behavior.

How will that sort out this problem?

If they have to get a visa in Oz to come next time they will have this on their record and may not be granted a visa for another entry. England does this with "Football Hooligans" and they are not allowed to leave the country to cause problem for other countries police.

In my three years working at the Australian embassy from 96-98 I visited Patong regularly to assist Australian warships visiting Ao Makham and anchoring off Patong. During that period I am ashamed to say I saw some of the worst behaviour I have ever seen from Australian servicemen! I visited Patong again as a civilian last year and I was absolutely disgusted at the appearance and behaviour of young Australian "Bogans" there for a week of alcohol abuse and depravity.

It seems Australian tourists are quickly developing a reputation for being the most aggressive and rude nationality across the world. One of the reasons I chose to leave Australia and live in Thailand was the seemingly rampant disregard to the rule of law by the young people of Australia.

Disgusting behaviour by two Australian men who clearly do not know when they have had enough to drink. They must have been truly wasted for the bouncers at Hollywood to refuse them entry judging by the state of some of the people I have seen admitted over the years!

Makes one ashamed to be Australian!

You shouldn't be ashamed because of a few, these two thugs should be deported!!

Agreed they should be deported. But I can well understand being ashamed. I have had to have dealings with them outside of the drinking scene both here in Chiang Mai and Bangkok. They can be a very arrogant lot who think they are better than others.

Thankfully that is not true of all of them there are some very fine Ozzie's here.
