  1. that's rich coming from you!!
  2. without wanting to go off topic, but in answer to your....'somebody that was in their company'....what about any of the 3-5 others pictured around the table earlier on? its been 2 years now and to my knowledge there have never been any stories from any of them about that night?
  3. strange deaths, theft, muggings, assaults, drunken fights and even an assignation are all happening, some on a daily basis....oh no...wait a minute...thats pattaya!...... seems nothing is happening on Koh Tao other than heaps of tourists coming and enjoying their stay....no motorcycle gangs waiting in the alley ways, no mafia roaming wild and untouchable raping and killing with impunity..
  4. or 'they paved paradise and put up a parking lot'
  5. not quite right.. the rubbish dump is far from any resorts and practically in the middle of the island, no tourist would ever see or come into contact with it, local gov are dealing with it to sort the issue...rubbish is always going to be an problem on such a small island with so many visitors, people are not leaving in droves or becoming ill or have rashes, just someone trying to 'spice' up a story out of a none story.
  6. and how many they wouldn't have if they had just walked away..if the son didnt FIRST push they guy, she didnt slap the guy FIRST, son didnt grab the guy in a head lock FIRST, dad didnt punch the guy FIRST.....but forget about all that!!, yeah, OTT what happened after..but lets just forget the first part aye.....
  7. hardly been brushed under the carpet has it, its been on the news and media around the world, they looked for the guys, they arrested them and went to court... I'm pretty sure thats how things go with this type of thing anywhere. what more do you think should happen? only thing thats been brushed under the carpet is that they were the ones that escalated the whole thing. i expect they well sell their story to the uk tabloids and it will be front page of the trusted and truthful SUN. Frank asks, "what more do you think should happen?" If you ask me (I've had a third of a century experience with Thailand), the suspects should not have been granted bail. The British victims should be able to give evidence by video, instead of having to travel all the way back for the trial - a bummer of a trip. Additionally, if found guilty, the attackers should be given maximum sentences with no possible lessening. And yes, hospital expenses should have been paid by perps, even if it meant confiscating/selling their motorbikes and cell phones (they all have them). why did you feel the need to increase the font?.. to make it look more aggressive?( I've seen your koh tao posts) you are forgetting that the tourists threw the first slaps/punches..or are you completely denying that? so the reasonable outcome is...police got the guys, they publicly apologised, they will go to court and will be dealt with in accordance to thai laws...if you don't like it..well tough..its thaialnd and thai laws....go back to your home country if thailand is that bad...or do you accept the lax laws when it suits you?

  9. apart from the kick to the face they got what was coming, the video on the uk guardian is edited to paint a certain picture, luckily you can see the full version elsewhere, you can clearly see who actually does what first, if you still deny that then best pack up you bags and return to you home towns where this type of thing never happens every weekend.
  10. Did she, Not From what I could see?Would that justify the beating they got? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatal yes she did, the husband also walks round a group of people and punches someone in it, maybe its the black shirted thai, but they don't seem the be as innocent as the headlines made out to be....although the kick to the face was OTT.
  11. would you be bulldozing sleaze capital pattaya at the same time??......that place is in the news on a daily basis. Do they have a serial balcony pusher up there?, daily reports of brawls, stabbings, robbery and death!!...what a lovely place and equally lovely tourists!! with the amount of 'young' tourists that vist Koh tao, even on a daily basis this can be 1000+ per day if you include capacity of all the boats the amount of trouble here is minuscule compared to other places. i could count the amount of altercations over the last 10 years I've seen on 1 hand....i need to use 2 to count pattayas...thats just in a week posted on TV. labelling the whole island is a pathetic thing to say..in that logic i can safely say they you are a ' fat sex tourist'! the murders of H & D were shocking to all here, yes it was handled very poorly from the start, but for the 6 or so police here at the time used to sleepy life it was way over their capacity but that doesn't mean the whole island is in on it, you lot go on about the 'mafia' controlled this, your aganga that, your benefactors..total garbage....the whole mafia thing only came into the news when that drunk PRI%K sean mc anna posted on his FB page..but of course sensationalised news sells and with the press here at the time just fishing for any thing to write it was a god send. There are many rich families here..practially all of the ones with resorts on the beach and some a lot more wealthy then the ones your slating here. as for mon being on the beach...there were a few other on the beach at the time , local doctors, volunteer rescue amongst others that were not police or qualified forensic..were they all distracting the police and quickly gathering up tell tale evidence? although i think sean Mc spanna was a complete BSing tool, i have been told that there is video of him on a motorcycle with the 2 burmese guys, i have not seen it myself..has anyone? it is on the anonymous video?..with that in mind i found this interesting when someone posted it, i was reminded of the murder of 2 girls in UK when it turned out to be their school caretaker, but he was hanging around for 2 weeks helping the police enquiries and searches, in on the 'action' first hand...he was even interviewed.....maybe sean writing on DM Facebook page, bringing the murders into every conversation he had with people...sniffing around AC bar....maybe he wasn't just full of Sh&t. Some criminals believe that they are smarter than the police and want to watch them try to figure out what happened. Others revel in the chaos and hardship that they cause. Others may be uncertain about what's going on and want to see what evidence is being gathered so that they can assess their likelihood of getting caught. And for some specific criminals, it's a demonstration to the witnesses and the onlookers of their power - that they can stand there and watch while the police investigate the crime, and there's nothing anyone can do about it

  13. Dead men can't talk. Yes -- but they are alive now and they still haven't talked if they have anything to talk about. Probably because they want to remain alive. And they want their families to remain alive. Maybe they are prepared to serve the sentences because they have much guilt about what they know and possibly saw but dare not speak of. Lucky escape for Maung Maung (if he's still alive that is). yeah right.!
  14. what are the differences between the 2 versions? i have seen the asian 1 and although i was expecting amazing revelations as hinted at by some TV posters here i found it was nothing more than previous news that everyone knew edited together. they briefly highlight 6 young deaths as 'mysterious' but fail to give any evidence and omit certain evidence for at least 2 that would remove them from that category. did the family of nick pearson make any reports about their suspicions to the UK police or media or anyone prior, or did they only do this after the hannah & david case?. I'm sure parents wouldn't want to think of a child dying of their own drunken stupidity, but is it not at all possible he might have after being put bed early on NYE for being 'too drunk to walk'? for those here that would like to link his death to AC bar.. the place where he was staying and also died is at completely opposite ends of the beach, by the other end i mean, you couldn't get any further!, in fact its past the beach and up into the the hill, you would have to walk the entire length of sairee beach past every other bar in sairee on before you would arrive there. since all the 'bad' press about KT it has been even busier that previous years, i would add that i've seen a lot more older couples and families since all this happened, so either people don't read the news or it didnt affect them. KT is still in the top 4 of holiday islands to visit.....bad luck for those of you who are so keen to see KT disappear!
  15. don't feel like you in any way need to explain or justify anything to these (possibly fat, balding, or grey haired) keyboard warriors , i used to think this site was the place to come for any thailand related info, visas, travel, etc etc, i realise its just full of sad, bitter old men that have nothing better to do or nothing better to say than negative crap....i hope your friend is ok and turns up, shame some insignificant PRI^&S are only here for 1 thing....
