My advice when stopped by the police, take out your mobile phone and start filming the whole incident. In particular get the face and if visible, the name tag of the policemen. It works...

And if my wife driving gets stopped, she stops briefly and simply tells the police man, you have the licence plate, so send the fine to my home. and leaves.

247 foreigners, out of x million ?

And you can be sure that every single one of the 247 was paraded in front of the media to announce the capture of these despicable criminals by the incredibly brilliant police as they protect the nation against the evil crimes committed by those dangerous foreigners.

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?

Weird... How come back home we all obediently abide by the rules but when we're guests in another country, it's racial profiling? Something not right, no?

It was the same in Pattaya where it was claimed all the tourists were responsible for the litter being left on the beach.........it would be be easy to stop at customs on arrival, check the suitcases and take all the empty Chang bottles and little plastic bags off them there!

Most of the serious crime in the news in Thailand is Thai on Thai. Start with the serial rapist/killer who killed a girl named Cartoon.

Others are Thai on foreigners. Why don't they check taxi drivers for knives and bamboo poles?

Because if the farangs didn't come then there wouldn't be a problem, they are provoking and encouraging locals to act the way they are.

Are you on Yabba ?

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

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.

Lol easy to tell the difference between an Aussie and kiwi sitting in a car the kiwi has a lamb sitting on his lap and a sheep buckled beside him in the passengers seat .

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

Extreme racism at its best...!! I would urge all foreigners to do what I did seven years ago, and leave Phuket for the last time...!!

Whats the problem, unless your doing something illegal?

So I assume that tourists will be stopped and searched as they pass in and out of Phuket.

I am sure this is going to help tourism a lot.

Went to Phuket on holiday and was stopped and searched 3 times and questioned at length about if I was working and where is my work permit.... I am just a damn holiday maker on a 2 week holiday from the UK.

Yes, I suppose this will go down well with tourists, holiday in a police state.

is simple greed, under the guise of xenophobia. Vast majority of crime at night here is done by Thai's, even when relative numbers are taken into account. Airport tax, VAT, higher prices for most things for Farangs here apparently not enough, the bib want to impose their own form of "tax" on farangs.whistling.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.

Why Pattaya 2 ?

I have never ever been stopped and searched in Pattaya.

You probably don't drive a moped then!
