Thailand is the only country where foreigners are treated as elites whatever way they behave. This guy would have had his lessons if he had done this in some other country. It is time that Thailand stop patronizing such people and just start kicking their butts and make them feel the pain. No more such thing as apology and golden handshake and walking squat free.

smashed the car because he believed it had been following him for two or three days.

Paranoia due alcohol, maybe he can blame someone spiked his rice wiskey😂

that is absolutely not a true, quite opposite compared to other countries.

 

And I am not sure how you can predict what will be the decision. They will surely throw him out…

Absolutely. I know a few people who did doddgy stuff in Thailand, one ended up in Jail for 4 years, 2 did not go to jail cause they paid but all of them ended up having the same faith at the end: they got thrown out.

But I think they were following him. The American wasn't paranoid at all.   Sunthorn alleges that the foreigner had been drunk for 2 or 3 days, and that he was angry all the time and was also aware of previous vandalism.  Sunthorn wasn't just a casual observer.   He was actively stalking the drunken fool.

Treated as elites obviously you're not a foreigner living in Thailand...

This type of behavior goes on all over Thailand, and is common. If you are a Thai, drunk and disorderly, never makes the paper, TV, or internet. Get a Farang in the picture, not a Chinese or Korean tourist BTW, and its front page news. Obviously popular with the Thai public, or, maybe it is 'the powers that be' that like pushing it.

So what?

If someone acts like a mutt, they deserve to be blasted 

 

And maybe it gives some other mutts pause if they want to act like that in the future

Go find a picture of this, look at it. Right, this is a dog and pony show, brought to you by the Thai police and media.

I understand you don't care about mutts, who does?. However the BiB  can easily grab this guy, slam him up & deport. Doing this, the pony show, they are sending a message to the Thai people about what farangs are really like. It is deliberate. It is government approved. If you are a farang and you are living here you better be concerned, as this has been going on for decades now. Lots of expats here think this Pony show doesn't apply to them. If you think that you are fooling yourself. Don't be a mook.

Spot on observation. I know of at least three incidents where an expat has been involved in a car accident through no fault of their own and the immediate reaction of the first responders and RTP is that you are drunk and it’s the foreigners fault and they need to pay. On each occasion the foreigner was driving alone. Two of the incidents resulted in imprisonment at the local police station, until a fee of between 2,000 and 6,000 baht was paid to the Thai “victims”. Only one person avoided the problem as he was fortunate enough to be a personal friend of a well connected local Thai business man who assisted him. 
 

You would have to be blind, naive, or lacking experience of any long term living in Thailand to think otherwise. For many expats these problems never arise. But be fully aware that if they do, you are guilty until you can pay to prove you are innocent.

I wondered if there'd be a post trying to justify the behaviour!

Totally subjective information and so the entire post is invalid.

Again, only this forum could take this story that is clearly about a whacked out guy breaking the law, and then complain about other instances

 

He broke the law!!

I never said he didn’t. My post was to support a previous post. I was simply adding my support to the comments made. Anyone who breaks the law should feel the full weight of the law

But can you understand my point?

 

This story is about a clearly whacked out guy breaking the law

 

And only this forum can turn that into whining about how farangs are treated

 

It is 100% typical of this forum

 

 

If you want to say Thais do this all the time w/o news coverage

So what, don't drink Lao Khao for 3 days and act like a maniac...............

Hopefully he will be deported from Thailand in double quick time although a spell in a Thai jail would also maybe make him consider his life decisions.
