Two dead in police chase, angry mob of people protest in Thalang

Recommended Posts

700 army and police troops coming to the site.

2 cars has been burned

Rumours about curfew in Thalang.

Where is this info from? Are you there?

Twitter, phuketwan, thaibps

I was thinking of going there, but the situation might escalate to quite bad.

Yeah I could come in from the north am about 15 minutes from there but probably not a good idea, sounds like a full scale riot is occurring. PW reports 5 cars are now burning, not clear if marked police cars, or privately owned police cars

The TVF news bot is missing the boat on this one with that " 2 dead...." headline

They still didn't stop. My wife and I returned to our hotel tonight due to the rain. Not worth the risk as well as the nutters on LOS roads.

We all have choices.

How do you know they still didnt stop? Thats only the rtp version. Personally Im not too keen on trusting their version.

Sad waste of young lives. Don't know about these kids but I do know of a few who would race their bikes to escape the hassle of a shakedown regardless of whether or not they'd committed an offence. Such is the reputation of police integrity.

No one respects the RTP. They never have and never will be respected it seems.

PHUKET, Thailand: An angry crowd of about 500 people surrounded Thalang police station in Phuket on Saturday (Oct 10) to demand justice after two people were killed in a police chase.

About 700 police officers and military personnel have been dispatched from nearby Krabi and Phang Nga for reinforcement at the police station in Thalang, local news site Phuketwan reported.

At least five cars near the police station were reportedly set on fire as the protest continued.

This comes on the heels of a 14 year old who was shot when reckless cops engaged alleged drug dealers in a firefight in the streets. Until RTP implements standards of conduct for police chases and use of firearms, and civilian boards are allowed to review RTP's actions, innocents will suffer. Who knows whether the suspects are actually involved in the drug trade or just being targeted by RTP for evidence to be planted on them?

RIP, young men. But why didn't they stop?

Maybe they did not wear helmets and could not afford to pay 300 baht - a day's wages?

Article says carrying 50 meth pills++ fail to stop <deleted> em...

Edited the deleted word is <deleted>

Even if the police did something wrong here, and so far I have read nothing indicating that, a mob reaction like this is not justified.

PHUKET: An angry mob attacked Thalang Police Station and blockaded Thepkrasattri Road in an attempt to get to Superintendent Amnuay Kraiwuttianan last night.

The group of about 60 of the protesters descended on the station at about 6pm, setting fire to at least six police vehicles.

The outraged mob claimed that police used excessive force in their attempt to arrest two suspected drug dealers: Patomwat Panarak, 22, and Teerapong Srisamut, 17. Officers crashed their car into the fleeing suspects' motorbike at 11:30am yesterday.

Another fine example of the degeneration of Phuket and Thailand in general.

Come on T.A.T. how are you going to spin this one ?

Perhaps the authorities should tell the police that they ( thepolice) might be better employed in arresting the and curtailing the drug dealers activities as opposed to pulling in celebrities for posing in images involving alcohol?

.Both suspects died in the crash. At the scene, police found fifty ya ba (methamphetamine) pills.


Officers and military personnel have regained control of the situation and are currently negotiating with members of the mob, which was led by relatives of the deceased.

Well that's two less pieces of trash less to worry about . Play nasty games get a nasty response.
