British man assassinated in gangland hit in Pattaya

Recommended Posts

It will be interesting to get the full story in the coming days. It certainly looks like a targeted 'hit' and not some random event.

If you are rich enough to own a Porsche in Thailand, don't move here.

 

Move to a country that has rule of law.

 

Don't fall victim to Thainess.

 

I think it is okay to move here if you have money, but seriously unwise to show it. Fine if you drive a modest car and house, the less people can see the better.

Unless you're involved with money lenders, drug dealers etc, why would you feel unsafe?

Open your eyes & ears.

Even to be involved in honest business might be very dangerous.

Or rich enough to own a 2015 Audi RS5 advertised at 6,900 last year?

 

"pod work"  must pay well.

You'll get more kudos here, driving a Porsche, than in a country where the rule of law is upheld but you'll also 'draw more heat'; if this was a gangland killing though, I doubt it would matter what you were driving.

Go on, you have spun a nice set of assumptions already, I think, yes, you should say more. I'm all ears.

You're probably not as safe as you think you are. It's better to feel unsafe and take precautions than run around feeling safe and being caught by surprise.

 

How safe you're going to feel probably depends on your country of origin and how much life is worth there.

I agree. It's likely to be connected to a business arrangement ... I wonder what business the guy was in?

Oh great.  Tourists on the crime scene taking photos to post to their Facebook pages.

 

Koh Toh Deja Vu anyone?

How do you know there are tourists taking photos? Because there are people there not in uniforms?
