Welcome to Thailand. Key point is why police checkpoints are stopping taxis of any other public transportation, and asking for passport/visa info from tourist in wee hours of morning ? And when confronted by authorities nowadays, everybody records on their phones. If no recordings available, the probability that the police had them delete is believable. The “image” that Thais are so concerned about is laughable. Corruption is systematic, and ingrained within.
Policing in the US is a failure........
And I come from a family of cops!
It needs a complete overhaul and I not talking about defunding the police
But it is a systematic failure..........it doesn't matter how many good cops there are, there are way too many bad ones......
And often times the "good" ones( I don't consider them good if they allow it to happen) stand by and do nothing and say nothing against the bad ones
It’s not entirely impossible that this is all being made up. But why would a well know Taiwanese actress choose to pick on a group of Thai police like this? What would be her motive to fabricate something like this?
Isn't too much of a lot of things bad for you? Or at least you should check if it is?
At least that has always been my belief, I seem to be always checking how much of something I should consume if I am eating something quite often
