Brutal murder of German in Samui goes unpunished two years after the event

The killers are walking free, like in koh tao case. We farang are just seen as low life in this country. He will never get justice here.

They can kill, rape, assault, once again  mai pen rai.

Now start to think about all the suicide cases, that we read on a daily basis. Do you really believe all these foreigners committed suicide. OR maybe just the police dont bother to investigate when the victim is a farang...:bah:

 

The police may be afraid of the mafia and motocy gang boys, so they cooperate or try to avoid "seeing" what they are up to in order to avoid confrontation and not piss in anyone's rice bowl.  They don't get paid enough (salary) to take any risks.   

 

Last year, at the winter street fair held on the main highway in my town, the moto morons gathered at the top of my soi on the main road, and were physically stopping cars to see who was inside - I suppose looking for rival members trying to slip in or through town.  The local numpties in brown were 100 yards further up with their blinky lights helping pedestrians across the road, pretending they weren't aware of what was taking place in plain view.

Just another fine example of corruption AND incompetence overpowering the Thai judicial system.

 

A very sad for victims and their families both Thai and Foreign.

 

No one can be that incompetent. Quick arrests and confessions, specific person identified as slitting the throat, murder weapon in evidence.

 

Which leads to conclude it must be the other option. So any of these attackers well connected, from prominent local families, wealthy or otherwise?

 

Just another example, one of many, of open and closed book cases that have gone nowhere fast. And nothing but the usual lame excuses.

I am always amazed at the flippant comments made by foreigners on a topic like this.

I have read about other similar cases, one being an unarmed Canadian shot dead  in a bar in Pai

by an off duty policeman and similar ending to above German.

Point is, an ending like this  can easily happen to any foreigner yet you stay here and play

Russian roulette with your lives.  

 

Third world countries know that first world countries no longer give a fig about their citizens. They won't rock the boat - only interested in trade and business relations and keeping diplomatic appearances.

 

If it what a Russian, Japanese, or Chinese citizen then watch and see their governments act more proactively. The fat cat Western politicians and bureaucrats couldn't be bothered.

I don't know the details of this case, but I assure you right now there are hundreds of cases in the U.S. of killings that are "unresolved" from years ago which will probably never be resolved or even brought to court

It is only on television where the police always find a "suspect"

On television there is alway 'fingerprints"or a "clue" that solves the case.

In the real world it is not that easy.

I am not defending the Thai police, i am just telling you the straight facts.

No matter whatnyou see on television only a small percentage of killings go all the way to a conviction.

Investigations are entirely the responsibility of the host nation. The system might not fail quite so often if they really were reading from the same textbooks as Scotland Yard.

Take a look at the geriatric red shirt war. They will be tried and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Why? Because they decided to challenge the junta. There will be no delays like the above case jack boot justice will be swift. That is the two tiered justice system here. 

And yet........the UDD goes on its merry way while nearly the entire leadership have serious outstanding charges.

I remember the story. Thais, especially the menfolk, can be very cunning. Keeping a cool head, in the face of an obvious Thai provocation "set-up", is an absolute must-do survival tactic for all farangs.

 

However,  Volker Schwartges was probably a typically arrogant HD_HA (pseudo-tough-guy) farang, who block-headedly refused to accept, and, respect the cultural "realities" of life, as an alien guest, within the "turf" of an island community,  in the Kingdom of Thailand.

 

:whistling:  Sadly,  that "cognitive processing" failure, cost Herr Schwartges his life.

 

And, more sadly still, two-years after the fact, that particular murder incident has definitely faded into "broadcast news" oblivion. Just the facts of life, in the LOS!:coffee1:
