Chiang Mai anti-drug police chief arrested in Chiang Rai for drug delivery

Recommended Posts

Look at that police lad in the centre in the background... really looking worried... "hopefully they dont know about my bad behaviours yet" i can read from his face.... coffee1.gif

The chap in the centre wearing a beret is most likely an Army officer, though the picture is not clear enough to be sure. I am not sure regular BiB wear berets?

The Pattaya BiB Boss ALWAYS wears a beret... on ANY pic i've seen on TV... wink.png

What you have seen here is a person deviating from the long established system. This happens from time to time and they are rated on. His big debts were obviously the reason he did this. This big, big business has been going on for 70 years and they are not going to allow people take a cut and run. Precursor made in China, shipped to Burma and finished product sent to Chiang Rai for further transport. There are lots of local small dealers here who are allowed to have this territory with payment. It fits into their extra income after growing Yingluck rice. There are no poor people in Chiang Rai.

Amen. The guy under him on the ladder got his job now. Don't let this talk of new administration etc... fool you. It is just a changing of the guard from one mob to the other. There will be blood letting in both camps. Then everyone will be back to business as before. You don't stop the international drug trade out of the golden triangle by knocking off one little soldier.

Not really a surprise. Police are deeply involved in the drug trade all over Thailand. On both sides of the fence - investigation and dealing or at least controlling the dealers.

That leads to my question. How deep and how wide?

They seem to be lousy crooks as well as lousy cops.

I wonder who they really work for.

On the surface it looks like they caught a big fish. I hope they didn't really catch him and that this arrest is actually part of a deep undercover operation. We can only hope.

Yes, I do have an overactive imagination.

Some things never change and never will. Too much money involved.

so true..... this is not an isolated incident. This is how prohibition works....Same all round the world. Anyone who thinks it's gonna change is delusional.

Good to see some of these scumbags getting caught but only effective if the punishment fits the crime.

So much of the corruption that besets this country is as a result of police involvement either directly or indirectly. A major factor in providing "happiness for the people" would be to "sanitize" the RTP.

Well, seeing as the police's job is to uphold the law, and corruption is the degradation of the rule of law, I'd say for it to happen they must be involved...and what is police involvement a result of? Well it's the result of bad laws creating the opportunities for massive profits, in a culture where money trumps everything. People respond to incentives. The incentives for public officials to become corrupt are mind blowingly huge. You can see this all around the world.

What do you mean by effective punishment? I'm pretty sure this guy, as a Lt.Col. is probably very familiar with the punishments, since he was doling them out himself. How effective do you think these punishments are given that this guy new them inside out?...didn't phase him a bit.

You can't use violence to solve social problems....well, you can, but the result is the total shitfight we have today. You reckon 50+ years is a long enough experiment to find out whether this 'law and order' approach has been successful?

A major "happiness for the people" might be just to leave them the faark alone. Sanitizing the police force is like trying to keep dirt off a dozer. Dream on.

Probably moved to an inactive post as punishment

Possibly. I will hold my negative, fortune-telling expertise for later.

Glad to see it. I hope the detractors that claim that only "small fry" are being arrested will read this article.

From my experience, the small fry often rat on the big fish.

Of course, some may spin the story into a web of negativism, but that's okay too.

Go Thai Army, Navy, Marines and Others!

Reside in rural Chiang Rai and there's a very fancy house next door being built by a Mae Sai policeman. I don't know him well, but we've exchanged greetings over the years. The interior is all teak. The pattern for the past several years: 8 guys working there for a month, and then no one around for several months, on and off. Just wonderin'.
