Why need to KIV? I read from Bangkok post comments that this guy blocked a passing ambulance pathway in phuket and showed middle finger to the ambulance driver and the case is still pending? That shows his arrogance and his connections in Phuket. He thinks basically he is untouchable. Just cancell his visa and put him under custody until the case comes up. I also understand that he refuse to apologise and they are preparing to file a case against him. Let us wait and see who is having the final say.....The people or Thailand or the Swiss who thinks he is big in the land of Thousand simles, where there is the chance of Thousand possibilities.

This is a prime example of why foreigners should never invest or start new businesses in Thailand. The inconsistency and inconvenience of the visa system. You can invest and improve the lot of numerous Thais but stumble on a single incident involving an entitled doctor, and risk all your effort going down the drain. Structures infringing on public land is systemic in Thailand and most of which was blind-eyed by officials on the take. When discovered, or exposed by someone ( usually a rival), it would take months or even years ( depending on the influence of shady officials), to remove. 
The bottom line is there is great prejudice against foreigners by jealous Thais, many of which depend on foreign business and the jobs they provide. True, Thailand is mostly an affordable vacation spot, or inexpensive labor force to many western countries (Europe and the Americas).  But bottom line is that they need the west much more than the west needs them.

He's an assh*le, anyone defending him is likely one as well

No, it's a prime example of not understanding the country in which you are a resident guest.

If he did, he wouldn't have even approached the two women sitting on some outdoor steps looking out over the beach and moon.  Berating them (and by his wife, as well) even without the reported "kick" is anti-social in this country.

I'm not acquainted with your domestic situation, and why you think this is about anti-farang sentiment but when I first began my residency here, my wife was quite condemnatory and cautioning me about displaying any kind of anger in public, or to others.

I have long said that Thailand doesn't care for foreigners among them, except as tourists.  This man's behavior is outside of that, and perhaps people of his type are the cause of why Thai society doesn't care for us.
