Phuket teen confesses to bashing American man on beach

Recommended Posts

That alibi sounds like gob sxxxe.

Sent from my i-mobile IQ 1 using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

What alibi?

I think he means, "self defence" as his justification for the assault.

When he does recover he is likely to face questioning not only about the beating but also about hashish, methamphetamine pills and crystal meth allegedly found in his pockets.

What, no kiddie porn too? Or illegal passports suggesting he's a people trafficker?

I guess that's one way to make the case go away. Unless of course the poor guy dies. I can see them scrabbling to come up with a way to make this story go away.

thailand makes me more despondent by the day ..I have wasted so much of my life here putting up with so much garbage in this place..it gets worse by the day

I really am starting to hate this placesad.png

I personally don't think it is getting much worse, it's just we are more aware of these incidents now because of social media.

In my opinion, there has definately been an increase in "reported crime" on Phuket, in recent time.

You suggest, this is because the dissemination of the crime reports is easier now, due to social media, but social media has been around for a few years now, and I am simply seeing more crime reports in the media.

What is concerning, is the esculated level of violence in a lot of these crimes.

Firstly, lets hope the victim recovers. I also trust the Americans will have men on the scene to get witness reports.

Phuket and some of the other islands have figured this out.

After being caught assaulting a foreigner, always claim it was self defense and the foreigner attacked you first.

Then the BIB will go to the foreigner and give them two choices. 1) They will confiscate the passport, stranding the foreigner in the country until a trial can be set (often months away) and the courts can determine who started the fight. or 2) Allow the foreigner to leave the country if they promise to never come back. This may also include a requirement to apologize to the Thai for starting the fight

Must be a mistake in reporting this, there is no a way a Thai could do this, I think the reporter is confused, it would of been an immigrant worker I'm sure!

Yeah surely a bit mistake by the Reporter....A Thai doing such a thing?

And who would plant all that neat stuff on the guy.... well, phew its a good thing that he confessed as being a good citizen. Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa dhu
