Koh Samui ‘influential person’ gunned down


Recommended Posts

Stray bullet from the wannabe cowboy cop?

Another wild quote

I know allot of volunteers and believe it or not they don't want to do the job they would rather be going out and having fun but allot of local police know local people and ask them for help to boost numbers as the government under funds the police

Also local people like to do there bit for protection their island and their families

Problem you have is the same in and situation be police army or civilians ( anyone ) drunk and around guns has high chance or a bad recopy

Thai volunteers are aloud to carry guns. Of coarse they can i mean look at fisherman village this is what they have to deal with and don't even get paid

They can only arrest when in a group with a full policeman so in their spare time they are just normal people

"they were having dinner at the Karma restaurant" hmmmmm.

"Police have stepped up checking at all piers on Koh Samui to try to prevent the gunmen from fleeing." ​Quick before they make it to Mynamar. You just know it can't be a Thai.

Should have known influential actually means dodgy.

Local business man shot in Bophut Fisherman’s village

KOH SAMUI: -- A local businessman was shot in a restaurant in the Bophut Fisherman’s village on Friday 6th of March. The man, who it has been reported was influential in the area, was having dinner with work associates when two men opened fire on him. The incident took place at around 7-30pm.

CCTV footage shows two men walking into the restaurant and opening fire before leaving. One man then went back in and shot the man point blank killing him, two of his associates were also injured in the first round of fire.

The gunfire caused considerable alarm for locals and tourists enjoying the Bophut walking street market in the area who looked on as the police sealed off the restaurant.

Road blocks were set up around the island to stop the gunmen from fleeing.

Tak (his nitname was taxi because he is born in a taxi in Bangkok) was a real nice guy. I know him 30 years already. I will go to see his family this evening after work. Please keep your bad comments until we know why this happened. RIP my friend

In this country, when you get to be an 'influential person' your life's span somehow become shorter.

today you're on the right side of the gun's barrel, the next, the wrong side of it...

Are they suggesting that foreign business owners NEED protection from local "businessmen" like this in order to conduct business in Thailand? Should look good for future investors.

Normally not I guess but a lot of foreign scums are involved in running bars, resorts without licenses so yes they do need protection.

what about a speedboat on a beach...is that a plausible scenario, or is it against BiB intuition and therefore impossible?

six bullets, someone really wanted him dead,this was no ''I don't like his face killing''. Serious business with serious money involved,can't be too hard to find a motive providing some real police get involved but TIT.

I would say:

Normally yes, in a way or an other but a lot of Thai and Foreign scum are involved in running bars, resorts and other illegal businesses and need more protection. It's just a matter of price but everyone will need eventually some kind of protection if they are living in Thailand.
