I've watched this for many years in Pattaya were these kids are used as prop's by beggers. 

It's child abuse to use these children having them sat in the hot sun and extreme heat for hours on end I've many times walked into the nearest 7/11 of Family Mart to buy some milk ,juice or water for the kids but their not interested in it they just want money. 

Similar to organised begging in my native Swansea (if you keep giving they'll keep begging).

Also a mention of all the children walking around the open aired Beer Bars in Pattaya at all hours of night selling chewing gum.

I'd tell anyone visiting Pattaya if their feeling generous jump on a motorbike taxi to The Father Ray Foundation on Sukhumvit Road and make a donation and you know your money is being put to good use.

These "concerned witnesses", are that by any chance the Thai fathers and mothers from the Thai flower- or chewing-gum girls, who fear about the income of their families? 'cause it seems strange that RTP is promptly acting on Cambodian parents, but if local minors running around, in bar areas in the night, with flowers/gum, look the other way?

Not just Pattaya but anywhere particularly where there are a lot of tourists. Like most things easy to fix but the Thai police can't be bothered.

Heck imagine the paper work the poor RTP would have go through to get rid of these people, no wonder "they let it go"😁

A lot of those kids are Burmese, not Thai

These kids running around the bar areas selling flowers and chewing gum etc are part of a criminal gang I wandered down an alley in Hua Hin once and saw them all getting out of a van and being briefed for their nights activity incidentally one of Thailands finest also came by when this was happening and kept going right on by. Paid off or just too lazy?
