BUENG KAN:-- Police made a massive ganja bust in the far north east but more than two dozen drug henchmen managed to flee back to Laos. A total of 1.2 tons of marijuana worth 25 million baht was seized.

The drama happened Tuesday on the banks of the Mekhong river in Bueng Kan province that borders Laos.

Acting on a tip off a large force of police and soldiers intercepted boats that had crossed over the border.

Some 20 warning shots were fired into the air to help protect the advancing officers but these alerted the gang who were beginning to unload the compressed drugs into an Isuzu pickup.

Some thirty drug members managed to escape in two boats in the confusion disappearing back from whence they came.

But officers said the massive haul that represented "a historical amount" for the province.

Authorities said that they suspected the drugs, packed in a new way with original markings, were probably destined for the central region and then shipment abroad.

So that the gang could escape and certain people continue getting the big fat brown envelopes ... or some were just plain stupid ... or both.

Why bother with warning shots?

So,they do not need to kill people without any reason.Where are you from originally?I think,I know..

I think that you will find that there has been a precedent set somewhere in the distant past on your views.

How many police ? not one but thirty odd highly intelligent well trained and

disciplined drug members managed to escape,

the inept poorly trained unintelligent

never new what they were doing as police officers,

combined with not understanding the tip off information they were given

being unable to coordinate with any common sense, with communications ( radios )

smart phones, boats as it was near the river,

please take them all to the re adjustment training as this lot surely needs it.

Actions have consequences, and cross-border drug smuggling has obvious inherent risks. One of which is the likelihood of copping a bullet or three, and the odds on that are multiplied if you try to flee when busted.

BTW I'm from Oz, and I don't care what you think.

So let me get this straight: some thirty drug smugglers were loading 1.2 tons of marijuana into a pickup truck on the Thai side of the Mekong, a large force of police was advancing on these smugglers when some moron fired some 20 warning shots into the air alerting the smugglers of the police presence, then the smugglers got in their boats and re-crossed the river...

Exactly which part caused the "confusion" that allowed them to escape??
