PHUKET: -- Nine people were arrested last night (August 18) when police made a sweep through three Kathu communities looking for drugs.

The sweep began when plain-clothes police separately approached Somporn Dachadonbom, 33, and Ungkan Sanboonsiri, 27, and bought crystal methamphetamine and methamphetamine pills from them. They were charged with possession to sell.

They then went on to arrest seven more people, all on charges of possession of crystal meth: Sangjan Jarigram 44, Porntip Pengkeaw 43, Thawattichai Janmanee 32, Karin Asawasak 26 ,Thongchai Janchai 27, Tusanai Sangmog 32, and Wimonporn Chaiyasook 28.

A total of 3.09 grammes of ice was seized.

These people need rehabilitation not thrown in jail. 3.09 grams is like a dot in the universe compared to the amount of drugs out there. Come on good police, it's about time someone at the top of the drug dealing business is arrested & locked up for a long time.

What is interesting is that the photo presents a broad cross section of workaday thai folk. It is clear from the photo that the Ya Ice problem is not just amongst young "say pay" thai lads with tatoos and souped up scooters. Thai suburbia is now awash with this poison.

I totally agree, the police continue to arrest the users and small-time sellers. Where are the arrests of the major suppliers. How difficult is it to get the seller to name his supplier and move up the chain to arrest the major players.

I've tried (and failed) to explain the concept of the people doing the arresting are the people supplying, so they know who you are already, and your best friends will grass you up to meet their monthly quota to stay out of the clink, which will eventually fail as they run out of people to point the finger at. Rinse, reset, and start the game again. It's a sorry sad situation.

But if they went up the chain there would be no police to do the arresting, For kingpins not being caught means That the fox guards the Hen house Maybe better if the General hires outside agency with no vested interest in Thailand to hunt down the Kingpins. Bet heads would roll then Police would be leaving the country by the truckload.

The problem is that it never has been, has never been defined to one social class.
