Two men charged with attempted murder as Belgian slashed trying to help Thai woman

Recommended Posts

Silly from the Belgian for getting involved.

No not silly, he is a Belg and is what they are known for get tthemself involved before analyzing what they're getting into, that is how Belgie became Belgie after it had been the RC province Vlaanderen for donkey's ages. History, that is why it is so important that people understand HISTORY. Unfortunately most people are not interested in history because they think live is ahead but as the age old saying says, " He who disregard history will commit same mistakes over and over again".

LOL in LOS

The nice Belgium man may want to consider relocating to another part of the country...or another country...don't see these two criminal creatures giving up the fight after being released...

If there is absolutely no chance of succeeding, then why not just call for help?

There are alternatives than walking into that, unarmed, and dying.

The choice to intervene was his alone to make. He sized up the situation and deemed it necessary to get in harms way & come to her aid. The man's a hero in my book.

I pity the poor <deleted> who (without even knowing the details) choose to criticize him. Cringing cowards love to heap scorn on those who have the balls to act.

Always a great example of fairness concerning disputes in Thailand: 2 Thais and a knife VS. 1 unarmed farang. Glad to see the cowardice is alive and well.wink.png

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Holy Bible has the answer to every problem that one will ever face in his/her life, and the short Book of Proverbs is loaded with God's wisdom for everyday living. If a man/woman would only take just one half day out of their lives to put that knowledge in their head, they will save themselves a lifetime of grief and strife. Example for this case:

Proverbs 26:17 says: Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.

Last week nothing but condemnation of Thai's for not getting involved in the beat down of three British Subjects...Yup, nothing but double standards to be found here in the ex-pat community that's for sure.

Hey, folks need help no matter who they are when the circumstances dictate help required.

Totaly agree on the double standard answers in this group. It was a woman that was in trouble, point !!!!

Maybe he should stepped in and helped the husband? Probably they could have a beer togetter afterwards ???

Admirable, but getting in the mix between Thai man and wife is a BIG no no. Glad he's pulling through. Lucky to be alive.

Actually this is not specifically Thai.. domestics between lovers are always a police officers worst nightmare anywhere in the world as both can turn on the officer. So I can only extrapolate that this means that interfering in domestic disturbances is dangerous for everyone and all over the world.. not a specific Thai thing.

The topic is regarding someone getting stabbed after coming between a Thai couple, so yes it is specifically Thai. I am well aware of what happens elsewhere. However, this is a Thai forum, we're not discussing the rest of the world are we. When face is of utmost importance (as it is with Thais), causing someone to lose some is asking for it. You might get punched elsewhere, the Belgian's fate and worse is more likely to happen here.

I agree that it's best not to get involved in domestics. However we do not know the circumstances of the intervention. If the Thai husband was beating his wife to a pulp and she was in danger of being beaten to death then you have to try to stop him. If it was just a lot of shouting and pushing and shoving then walk on by.

Not always black and white

Koh Lipe is a very small island. This guy, a dive instructor, may have mistakenly believed he was "accepted" in some way.

The Thais did get involved. The Scots started punching, restraining and slapping people and Thais stopped the aggressors.

Brutally.

Police in America aren't too found of doing that either, and they carry guns.
