Would there be any left? In that case, perhaps that would make the country  safer.

When the top echelon of the Thai police and the PM are held accountable for their corrupt activities and complacency then only will there be respect , honor and integrity among the ranks. A slap on the wrist "ain't gonna change" piss poor moral and criminal like attitude ! Absolute power corrupts Absolutely and Prayut"s administration is a prime example of this " gangster" like mentality the Thai police department exude !

Names

Photos

Details of their conduct

Re-enactments complete with finger-pointing

Without the above, I simply do not believe it.

And, PS, what punishment did they receive? Did they go to jail? If not, why not?

BS

Pure BS

Can anyone explain to me the difference between being "removed from the service" and "fired"?

Also, am I the only person to have noticed that there is not one mention of a prosecution, let alone a custodial sentence? I suspect the reason for this is that if these cases were to come before a court, many of the accused would have interesting stories to tell. Maybe better not to open that can of worms.

So what's the betting that Joe Ferrari, if convicted, will get a slap on the wrist, because it's his "first offence"?

 The RTP spokesperson, Maj-General Yingyot Thepjamnong, says the disciplinary action against police proves that the commission is taking misconduct among officers seriously.

"Seriously". Seriously?

75%, literally, are still serving!

Out of all these officers who committed whatever offences, a few were fired!!!  Why weren't they all fired?  Guess there must be positions to be filled at the top so they will just be moved there.  Thai justice for the corrupt.

Has a single one gone to prison? Even one? Likely not. These creeps are above the law. Any and all laws, and any hyperbole to the contrary is total nonsense.

Crime in Thailand

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
 
 
Jump to navigationJump to search

Official corruption is rampant in Thailand.[1][2] It ranges from bribery to outright police collusion. The interplay of drugs, prostitution, political paralysis, corruption and collusion, a culture of impunity,[3] international tourism and trade, traditional Buddhist tolerance[4] and tendency to ignore problems has led to an increasingly multifaceted and complex crime epidemic in the country. Juvenile delinquency has also been increasing in recent years.[5][6]

Thais may be impersonating the Ostrich, but the world is not. 

International opinion may be starting to get under their thick skins.

Guess their biggest crimes was being found out in the first place.

Is it ever a wonder why young teen guys have a great desire to be joining up. 

It's a secure club with financial benefits. Set for life. 

Even more financially rewarding than a monk's Wat existence.

Not sure if it is more rewarding than a Thai Monk. Cash in hand ( which in theory they are not supposed to touch) every week and no ledgers audited.  Even the RTP have to be more circumspect with their cash "donations"
