The foreigners tend to be their own worst enemy. Alcoholics tend to attract trouble wherever they go. Never had a problem in a Thai bar. Foreign bars i just avoid. Too many dumb apes.

Yeah.....All you can drink for 800B....One guy of 6 takes his shirt off and gets bounced.....

Trouble already....The bouncers see 6 guys giving the uncomprehending drunken confused/angry/macho men stares while trying to figure out what's happening → and it's on......

Amazing - same stuff from the same areas over and over.....

Swimming with the sharks and chumming the waters at the same time.....Easy targets......by the looks of it too drunk to defend themselves and more to it than what they disremember....

What does that have to do with them being beaten?

These incidents are getting more news time domestically. It seems the media have gotten the taste for these stories and given they keep coming the conversation is alive and well about the dangers and negatives virtues of Thailand for travelers. The koh tao incident is being closely monitored as are a number of other current assaults in the courts.

The immaturity of Thailand's administrators to not properly attend to this is indicative of so many of the countries problems. And they cannot do it. Nor really care. At the base of the issue, there is an attitudinal dislike for farangs. Combine that with a opportunism to take when they can, you get the lawlessness.

You are wrong,Thais along with every other normal peoples of this earth dislike drunks that can't handle their alcohol and no respect for the people around them and the country they are in.I have been on many a footy trip and as i got older,wised up.Tossed out of Wrest Point Casino twice in 1 night.Was on a winning streak at 2 up.

I myself have over 6 years of UFC and MMA training. I am more than confident I could take these guys out if no weapons were used but, as I am disciplined I would restrain myself because of the physical damage I could cause to them. I only fight in the ring.

Out of curiosity, what would happen if a falang ended up knocking these bouncers or any other attackers out ?

Would he be prosecuted for defending himself in an unprovoked attack ?

Have any incidents like this ever happened in Thailand before ?

It's always the case afterwards that they were the victims... why don't you tell us the chain of events prior to the bashing so all of us here will have an idea why u got your head kicked in.

Karlos the name answers all my questions lol.... Why dont you be a man and respect others or better still go back to where you came from

It's a very up-market place and removing clothing is not allowed. Apparently they had been harassing most of the girls/staff during the evening and had been asked to behave. I'm sure they didn't take kindly to being asked to leave and it escalated due to too much alcohol.

what difference does it make? nothing can justify attempted murder. they were kicking the guys heads in. and nothing in the video can justify what the bouncers were doing. the guys were down. kicking someone in the head like a football means you want to kill them.

throw the bouncers and security guards in the video into Thai prison, two to five years. Next case.

As you say put them in prison for what they did on video , a lesson for the future .

This is an inheritance from the days of Patpong!!!.... Tourists or anyone looking foreign would be hustled in to a bar saying "Live Sex Shows!!!" And anyone who was/is naive to go into the club would be a mark!!! When the marks were finished and getting ready to pay a humongous bill would be presented!!!

And if you didn't pay, they would close the doors and hassle you till you paid but if you STILL didn't pay then that was what happened to you "GET BEATEN UP!"... This is now more refined than from the days of the 80's when Bangkok was known as "The Prostitution Capital Of The World!!!"

It's not an upmarket place is it though. I actually know people that do go there when they are in Phuket.

It's cheap and its nasty where anything can be bought. Bouncers have a chip on their shoulder and can turn on anyone in a minute as they have full backing of the police at very turn. As tourists these poor lads should have had some rights in this assault. They will not. The embassy will not help them other then they may receive an official letter. I would like the opportunity to compare their official letters with jacks.

What makes you think they were asked to leave?

They didnt escalate anything. You can see they never threw a punch. They were out of the club and thats where the responsibility of the bouncers end. But no, the bouncers escalated it by beating and kicking them.

True cowards.

The chain of events are there. I am tired of people defending actions of thugs like this. it doesn't matter what they did, I am pretty certain though that a group of Aussie lads watching the Rugby would have had a few beers and been making some noise, I was in a bar with 2 Aussies and thats exactly what they were doing, what wrong with that?

Anyway, its the Bouncers job to ensure everyones safety in the club / bar of an evening. So, if someones violent they throw them out, if it escalates they restrain and call police,, simple.

No where is it ok for Bouncers to knock someone unconscious in the club and then chase his mates out into the street and kick him repeatedly in the head,,,

If I was the Aussie guys I would pushing them all for monetary compensation (its the Thai way after all) and / or for arrest and custodial.

Thailand cannot have this continued press coverage so I am sure their case would be taken seriously... Justice is required here for the good of Thailand..

I think the problem with tourists pressing charges is that they usually have return air tickets and leave the country before proceedings get started then they will need to return for court dates, and as arron said, none of them were seriously hurt, I can only say that if i was in the victims position I would forget about it too, just too expensive to take time off work and buy return air tickets every time im needed to appear in court, I dont know if the police can charge the offenders on video evidence alone, but i imagine it would be more difficult without the victim asking them to and having a wittnes for the prosecution
