Police warn teens going "Live on Facebook": behave obscenely and you could face jail

BANGKOK: -- Teens going live on Facebook to dance or behave provocatively have been warned their actions could land them in jail.

 

There have been several cases recently and yesterday another came to light of a girl gyrating in school uniform.

 

Police spokesman Krissana Patanacharoen said that the latest case could fall into 14 (4) of the criminal code relating to obscene acts committed on the internet, reported Sanook.

 

He said that the fact that the girl was in school uniform made it worse.

 

"Teens should be aware that this behavior is not appropriate and they could be prosecuted," he said. "We are currently investigating several cases. Don't do it - we will get you".

 

The law allows for a 5 year prison term and a fine of up to 100,000 baht for those convicted of obscenity.

 

One girl called Mabel who may face a charge for such activity on the internet is due to meet with police today, Wednesday.

I thought criticising the police online was an obscene act, ending with a prison term ?

Why not spend your valuable time getting  those road rage warriors off the highway for speeding, killing people and the like instead of this crap.  No wonder why the  academics are  criticizing the police.

Is it only illegal for teens?

Yes mate. Sadly no one wants to watch you gyrate either in school uniform or not :)

Just a wee bit over the top.  The Junta wants to completely rule every single aspect of people's lives, the have to act, think and speak in accordance to Prayuth's rules or you will be imprisoned but the elite are free to live their lives however they please.

Here in Thailand, they have like millions of criminal codes, but not so many policemen

to enforce most of them....

I wanna see the police starting to chase FB offenders now, like they don't have

their hands full with other much more serious crimes that they can hardly keep

up with, good luck guys...

The Thai police are really the laughing stock of all police forces in the world, they think that they can write their own laws.

Serious crimes like arresting farangs for playing Bridge and sleeping with prostitutes.

Intriguing that the law here allows for a child to be jailed for 5 years for dancing in her school uniform yet we are led to  believe that killing several people by driving a car  without a licence when you are underage does not require a prison sentence because Thailand does not punish children that severely.

are they really going to

1. contact facebook for the IP and then

2. force the Telecom-Provider to issue the contact-data / adress of the culprit?

3. crack a nut with a sledgehammer

(or "riding an elephant catching grashoppers" in thai)

And what if they just log in to facebook via public networks or free WiFi?

 

Oh, and by the way - there is also a MV from Thai LugThung-singer "Thai Orathai" about a "professionally" dancing girl in MathajomTon (DaoTen MooTon):

Have they checked the letter of the law or are they just making laws up as they go along?

 

What about these end of term school shows with younger girls. The ones where they dress young girls in short skirts and make up and have them dance like adults? Will we see more 5 year old girls in prison now? What about older or less attractive people dancing sexily in a funny or ironic way? Would the video only be illegal if a bunch of dinosaur police all agreed it aroused them? Anything less would just be a funny video and harmless. 

 

Pathetic.

Meanwhile the police are issuing summons to people who questioned their actions because it tarnishes the image of the police.
