Phuket Police to target foreigners at night


Recommended Posts

I give it the thumbs up. Go for it I say, because whoever is found to be in violation of whatever, needs to be hauled out, penalized and preferably expelled.

Not enough tourists being arrested to justify the tourist courts. Police have been sent out to harvest as much as they can.

Out of these 247 crimes, 142 are for the heinous infractions of no work permit, traffic violations, overstay and illegal entry.

So in other words there were 142 real crimes committed by foreigners, vs... how many by Thais, not to mention their government officials and police.

What a joke. SHAKEDOWN is right.

Thais really know how to screw up a good thing don't they. Phuket was nice once upon a time, but instead of developing it into a proper resort, they never planned and instead the place is riddled with shoddy infrastructure.

“There is no need to carry around this kind of equipment at night,” he added.

Ha, ha, ha, ha; but you're welcome to carry this stuff from Dawn-to-Dusk ! ! ! ! !

I'm going back to my lab. and attempt to invent something like Viagra-for-the-Growing-of-Brains ! ! ! ! I'll make millions in Thailand alone ! ! !

I wonder if you will feel the same way when you ar pulled over, and a corrupt payment demanded from you, for having a copy CD in your car????

Xenophobia at it's finest. Bravo Mr Deputy Commander. clap2.gifcoffee1.gif

Must be karma from when just being black was good enough R&PG for a snatch and grab back home.

Interested to know how one goes about "preparing" to target foreigners.

(On our menu for today is hollow point, or beating; SSG, or fine. Which will you have today sir)? wai2.gif

Y'all come back now. cheesy.gifw00t.gif

Well, it's official then, with these statistics, Phuket is to be renamed Pattaya 2.

I would like to personally congratulate the BiB and Phuket's influential people for their wonderful administration of the island. Job well done. Keep up the good work.

I will look forward to the racial profiling at your check points.

There is already a Pattaya 2 in Khon Kaen and a Pattaya 3 in Sakon Nakhon.

I suspect the inspections will reveal the druggies & drunks....two brands of tourists Thailand (or any country) is better off without. The electronic ATM equipment is the inspection/search door in.......sly.....

But I understand their interest ... From locals (Taxi, jetski etc..) They collect 100-200 bht. Farangs have to pay significantly more.

Last time I was there, they let all Thais without helmet pass, they only stop the farangs.

This is how it works here... cheesy.gifcheesy.gif Money talks

Both claims are not true.

This is nothing more than legalised racism and is fundamentally wrong.

How is it racism when thai start checking e.g. vietnamese? Why do people on tv keep confusing foreigner with farang?

Well, at night, try to differentiate Vietnamese with Thais, sitting in car, approaching the gestapo checkpoint. They are only going for honkies!!!!

Just read the OP and the mentioned examples.

Wow, bitch and moan when they do not do anything, bitch and moan when they do something, Y'all sound like Americans.

I don't think anyone is complaining about the authorities actually getting off their butts and doing something but the way the BIB are insinuating that it is the foreigners who are responsible for the crime in Phuket. They are targeting the minority whilst excluding the majority.

These ATM scams have involved thais also in the groups so all they have to do is have the thai associate carry the equipment and he will go unchecked. If they were really serious then they will be checking everyone and not just the round eyes.

Yep it is a little like trying to differentiate between an Aussie and a Kiwi sitting in a car. I have to agree they will be targeting the round eyes easier to spot as a possible tourist or expat and not a citizen.

Of course you agree, you do that with everything that sounds negative.
