what bull , ths took place on MONDAY morning right in the middle of all the tourists waiting for the boat tours, the guy was SHOT in the leg ...i saw the pool of blood and the trail of it across the r

If he ended up shot then he would have deserved it

The attacker should be checked for mental health or being under the influence of substances, and/or perhaps mafia connections. Who in their right mind knifes a cop for a parking ticket? He needs to

Just shows what respect Thai people have for the RTP. I guess after all these years after bribes and corruption, karma is coming back in a "Big Way". P.S. I do not condone any physical attack on any police officer.

then why say what you did ? Stupid man.

looks like they are worried about AOnang so the story has been changedwhistling.gif

Why do you think this is bull?

The story was taken from khaosod and was dated the 23rd of December (Tuesday) and says "The incident took place at around 3 pm yesterday" so that would make it Monday.

The story also says "Pol.Sgt. Abhichart eventually shot at Thawatchai's leg"

Apart from you saying it was morning and the report saying it was 3pm I don't see any "bull" here.

Out of control narcissism rears its head again. I see it all the time in Macro where people choose not to recognize that someone would like to get by them in the isle as it would disturb their conversation on the phone.

Having a less lethal option such as a taser would have been convenient in such a situation.

Watching the cop run away was a big undignified for the RTP and only emboldened the perp.

I understand that police protocol for dealing with a knife-wielding suspect charging at you would consider shooting him in the leg as appropriate.

In Australia they are taught only to shoot at the chest. No head shots or leg shots. I think it is the same in most countries.

Also true in Canada (where I worked as a civilian for the mounties). Had a heated argument the other day with a friend over the Ferguson shooting ... he was saying that if the suspect had rushed the cop, the cop should have shot him in he leg, not lethally. I couldn't get across to him that these situations aren't Hollywood movies where cops shoot the guns out of people's hands. In the real world, shooting to stop means shooting at the center mass... the torso. But a lot of folks don't get it...

So you think this one isolated case is indicative of "Thai people"?

Very indicative of the contempt and disrespect the Thai people have for the police and the perpetual "Thainess" disregard for the law. Also a bona fide and magnificent display touching on the lack of training, professionalism and bravado of the Thai police!

Thais usually get angry when fined for wrongdoing. They never accept they could be wrong.

I have seen it a couple of times when motorists got a ticket in the town center and kept arguing angrily threatening the policeman.

What a Thai being wrong? No this could not be surely they are never wrong.

But seriously you have to commend the policeman for not shooting him. I am not sure I would have had his restraint in his situation

You guys are forgetting the most unbelievable part of this story:

A parking fine?!?! This guy's fine was probably the first one to be levied in Ao Nang in *months*, if not *years*.

Only because he parked too near the popo's tent, they didn't have to walk too far or expend too much energy! Easy Money!

And never run away! The Policeman would have been severly repremanded, if not booted, in most Western Countries!

Strategic withdrawal.
