<deleted>
the police chief in that area should be pulled and a new one put in his place. very disgusting! I am actually shocked by this. :angry:

The venders should all be locked up as well! but of course that will not happen will it? :blink: imagine if they were from any other country, the police would have a field day showing at how well they are stamping out this sort of thing in Thailand, but no! not this time, because its Thais that are doing it.

dirty ^%%#$@!

It's the mention of "influential people" in a story that always has me reaching for the sick bag. Isn't there anybody in this country wielding a bigger stick so to speak with the morals and clout to bury these cancerous cockroaches?

Exactly the point.

How influential are these people, that thais can not find someone so much more powerful to put the hammer down on them for this degenerate degradation of their own society?

What adults do is their business, if it isn't violent or physically oppressive to those
who do not wish it. But when they involve children, that is another level of depravity
that no society should ever tolerate.

There is another, more sinister, side to this. These vendors are trying to make a living selling what people want to buy. If people weren't buying the vendors wouldn't be selling. The people making these movies would still be making them even if people weren't selling and buying them.

It is the nastier side of the human condition.

I have just noticed that there are 172 people viewing this topic and wonder why.

Either the story is true and serious and Animatic's question is very wise, severe and scary: How influential are these people, that thais can not find someone much more powerful
Or its a message to discredit the police.
Or its a message to show that Thailand had never been so corrupted.

You are right that there will always be a market for this type of filth but, the police should be doing their utmost to help eradicate the suppliers/dealers etc. Surely there must be a point were the people say, "I don't care who you are, how influential you supposedly are, we won't tolerate this sh1t any longer"

So if someone wants to have sex with a kid the vendor that supplies the child is only offering what the market wants, what twisted logic.

Or it is someone showing how powerful they believe they are....

There are no doubt types that wouldn't look for this stuff,
but might buy something because it is in their face,
and they are curious. But warped enough to have that curiosity.

Right on;
This has been going on since as long as i can remmember and that goes back to the early 80's, so this is nothing new.
A thai has little, if any morality, when it comes to making a $$

Why do the Bangrak based police operate under different rules from those of Lumpini? Is Lumpini a crackdown free area?

We hear a lot of BS about politicians damaging Thailand's reputation. What could be more damaging than this? 

Is this sort of filth also available in non-tourist areas? If not, is this an indication of how visitors from abroad are perceived?

In this case the vendors should also add illegal drugs and guns to their business, as there is a demand for them in the market. All kind of porn is illegal in this country btw.

I have no idea about the Thai people you know or associate with but, IMO you statement is a total slur on 60+ million people. The locals I know are normal, hardworking family orientated citizens.

Thai people you know?
whome you recognize you mean.
Lets face it....according to euro standards most of the thai people I recognize have a personality disorder.
NOT because they are born with it, but because they make there ego the most important issue in the world.This public outcry is a farce for the most part, in any "normal' functional society this sort of shit wouldnt be on public in the first place.

wake up and face Thai reality(show)

This is nothing new, the custom officers at European airports know exactly how the covers of the disks with forbidden stuff, sold in Bangkok and Pattaya look like. Even dudes who think they buy regular porn get arrested, lol.

Human trafficking in this region, especially of under aged should get more attention because it's bigger then most realize, even huge...

Remember, curiosity killed the cat! If you are curious enough to buy this, and stupid enough to take it home, then it's "watch your fingers, CLUNG!", and you are in a prison with a worse label than a muslim bomb-chucker.

Once upon a time maybe, but now it's just as easy to find a .torrent and download the latests movies, or anything else you like :)

It appear Thai people will do ANYTHING to make money.
Are there any morals where making money is concerned??
I wonder if the vendors have children?
These sort of offences should carry extremely severe punishment and even death!

If anyone was to go to the vendors and ask why, get angry and upturn their poxy table or display, you would rest assured the police would not interfere. However, you would face other vendors who would side with these scum buckets. But understand, the police are being paid off to allow the vendors to block the footpath in the first place but this is a matter to be presented with photographic evidence to DSI and the Govt - not to the Police who are the catalyst in the sales therefore will not interfere.

And yes there may be 176 people reading this topic because they are all appalled. Either way - we all have an opinion about this and nothing short of castration against these low-lifes would suit me if I had the opportunity. Sorry admin - I know - no hang them high comments - would rather stretch them low and cut them (off)! Posted Image

you are absolutely right - there must be a huge market for these "Sickos" - last time I crossed into Tachilek from Mae- Sai I was approached by touts on the Burmese side if I wanted to go on a tour - I declined.

Two Thai guys in front and behind me where asked in Thai - "you want me to take you to girl - nice young girl?" - Thai guy declined - tout following him - "I mean nice really young girl" the tout went on - "Brother I am talking fresh 14-15 years old here!"

Can you imagine this anywhere else in the world? Even if most people decline the offer - nobody here seems to think there is something wrong with it ! There are guys openly offering the sex services of under aged children and nobody even cares.

And this is the really sickening part - it is almost accepted that children are abused - "who cares" - or " it's not my problem" seems to be the attitude .

I wonder what would happen if someone would inform the police?

Somehow I have the feeling - that the person who informs the police would be in more trouble than the criminals who offer these services! After all I don't think they could offer children for sex or sell child pornography so openly without the very people who are supposed to stop them being part of these criminal enterprises - getting rich on the back of abused children.

I don't feel it is fair to imply that because 172 people are viewing this topic they are potential clients who wish to purchase child pornography, maybe the interest in the subject is because people are rather outraged by the story.

I feel that these vendors should be arrested and charged with Child Pornography charges, paraded in front of the news cameras with there wares and shamed I am sure it would discourage openly selling of these discs.

Of course they would be just put under the counter then.

Or even better set up surveillance and nab all the purchasers of these discs
