British builder, 59, killed in Thailand after biker attack

A British builder who was working in Thailand has died after he was attacked by a group of bikers. Peter Chambers, 59, became involved in a dispute with the group of motorcyclists as he was driving to his home in Chonburi, Thailand. When he got out of his car to confront the men he was savagely attacked.

Mr Chambers, who moved from his home in Basildon, Essex to Thailand, was so badly beaten he fell into a coma and died in hospital two weeks later - the day before his 60th birthday. Thai police are treating his killing as 'death by assault' but have so far not a made any arrests.

Builder, 59, was beaten to death by motorbike gang in Thailand

A FAMILY has paid tribute to a man murdered in Thailand by a gang of yobs. Peter Chambers was savagely attacked by the gang, who were on motorbikes, just yards from his home in Chonburi. The 59-year-old from Basildon, who had been living in the country and working as a builder, had been travelling to his home when he got into a dispute with the thugs.

He got out of his car to confront them, but was attacked. Mr Chambers was badly beaten and was taken to hospital where he remained in a coma for two-weeks. He died two weeks later, the day before his 60th birthday.

His family in south Essex have been left devastated and are still waiting for answers about the death.

Can anyone name a single western murder where the perp was arrested, tried, convicted and incarcerated for a suitable period of time?

Anyone?

Why not manslaughter? Don't tell me, "death by assault" is a lesser crime applicable to the death of farangs.

As for the "so far not made any arrests", that is no surprise at all and if his family are waiting for answers, I am sorry but they will have a long wait.

RIP, another sad victim of the mob mentality that is creeping around all corners of the globe.

Just off the top of my head.

Anything else we can help you with, anti-bitterness pills perhaps?

No.

There is no 'manslaughter' (as it is known in the West) charge in the Thai judicial system.

huh? They don't catch the people who commit crimes against farang?

I'd have thought that they'd have some mega pressure from the government or international embassies etc to actually do their job.

Or that in general, people wouldn't want to touch farang, the same as they wouldn't touch someone who's hi-so, since they'd know that if you screw with someone who's rich, the cops will actually do their job.

It depends on media coverage. Lots of media = a half arsed investigation.

If a murdered ferang is not heavily reported = zero investigation.

Im sorry, but after many years living here i know the mind set. "If the ferang was not here in the first place, it would not have happened."

And yes, before you start, I AM a Thai Basher. I am a Thai Basher because to my mind, they could not give a flying fig about westerners. I live here purley because its a better climate than England and the beaches are nice. My own personal utopia would be a country precisley the same as Thailand in every way shape and form..... But without the Thai's.

Like it or not and feel free to hate me for saying this, but when a westerner is killed here, they could not give a dam_n. Thats one of the many reasons why equaly, I could not give a dam_n about Thai's.

RIP to this poor guy who was beaten to death by a bunch of cowards.

I am quite sure that a simmilar fate awaits me one day as I also have no issue in standing up to these racist third world retards.

It appears like road rage to me and in this case the confronter lost the fight.

How about this; It was a confrontation between a motorcycle gang and a fellow that pissed them off? What do you think happens if you try to pass the Hells Angels or Satans Choice when they are blocking a road driving illegally two abreast? Not every crime is motivated because someone is a foreigner. Sometimes the victims are just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sorry did not read the story but it sounds like it was a Thai bike gang.

I now live part of each week in Ptya and have noticed lately that there are a lot of falang bikers with colors wandering around - something that was prevalent 10 years ago but that seemed to fade but is not making a comeback??? Is it just me suddenly noticing them or do others find that to be the case?

I dont blame you for seeing me that way lol. I must come over a s a totaly miserable bugger. Im not though - im happy and enjoy life. Im just sick and bloody tired of Thai's right now. I am not the only one that feels that way. Maybe I will get over it and grow to love them again but right now, I have lost all faith in Thai's and have zero trust for them.

Clearly your statement that they don't give a dam_n is a bit of an exaggeration but I'm not sure why you would find this surprising or abnormal. Sadly, many people around the globe do not have the same sympathy for people outside their group. Even in the US, where I am from, there is considerably less concern when a Mexican or minority is killed or even when a black child goes missing. Do you think most farnags in Thailand care too much about a Thai death?

I'm not saying this applies to you but too many expats here seem upset that Thais don't worship them or really consider them much at all. I also think it often goes to a person's own self-esteem in terms of a need to speak out so much about how bad they perceive another group of people that are less fortunate than them.

My thoughts exactly. What constitutes a "biker gang"? It could have just been two or more friends who happen to ride motorcycles. Not arguing who's right or wrong, I just don't appreciate labels being thrown around without any sense of responsibility.

I hear you loud and clear, and am in complete agreement.

stories like this make me sad for the victims, and scared for my own fate here too. None of us can know what took place, but I feel that I've been here long enough to know that it probably involved 'face', a gang against one 'mob', and some little boys pretending to be grown ups knowing that if their victim was a foreigner that no one would touch them.

While some will call it 'Thai bashing' and others will say 'go home then' blah blah blah... I am with you in the feeling that out here no one gives a dam_n about westerners. so why should I stick up for the Thais? why should I be the one trying my darnedest to be polite, to not offend, to learn Thai customs and Thai ways... why should I? When I'm seen as nothing...

I don't speak like this because I'm jaded, or because I hate...

I speak like this because I am so dam_n saddened when I hear these stories again and again and again and again. I feel sorry for the victims and for their families. I feel sorry that it is like this... and I feel scared because I know that one day, if I'm in the wrong place at the wrong time, it could be just as easily be me...

Has anyone considered suicide?

Seems like you need counselling.
