We are being told that, in another high-profile murder case currently being reported on (https://is.gd/4fI4IK), that the prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

 

Surely, a premeditated hit such as this one, allegedly ordered by a police superintendent, deserves a similar punishment for the orchestrator ???

Not unless she was Hi-so

Yea, the Royal Thai Police are a law unto themselves,  even invent DNA samples and provide "non existent" witnesses  - as in the tragic murder in 2014 of two young people on Koh Tao - and two young men as scapegoats now in Jail on death penalty for their murder, clearly a set up by the Police who will undoubtedly have been paid a handsome sum for covering up the real murderers.  After 11yrs living in Thailand, we know how corrupt the Police are, thankfully moved out.

Very sad that this Lady´s life has been taken from her,  but yes, life is cheap in Thailand.

I'm sure you will. The saying that if you lie down with dogs you get fleas tends to apply to the four legged variety less.

Interesting article on how much contract kills cost in other countries... They can go surprisingly low as well. 

 

According to this site http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/ inflation has risen 12.5% since 2009 when the article mentioned above was written. So don't forget to add that in to your next contract offer. 

 

Dang! Everything's getting so expensive these days.

All very scary stuff, but if we are sensible there is a good chance we will be OK

 

We live in the country, we have two large Alsatians, they sleep by the bedroom door and I feel relatively safe

 

We also have eight beautiful puppies and will keep a couple, so we will be looked after by four of them, we also look after them, I do feel more comfortable with them there

In 13 years we have had 5 German Shepherds (Alsatians) and 1 Rottweiler. 3 shepherds have been poisoned, excellent trained dogs all people friendly, family friends, went everywhere together with us. Rat poison, horrible way to kill a dog

Read a story about assassins from several Balkan states that were doing jobs throughout Europe. 

They were the cheapest in Europe charging between 20,000 and 50,000 Euro for a job.. Yes, Euro !!! Not 3,000 Thai Baht.

 

When getting caught (in NL), they're getting about 5 years 3* hotel on Government's treat and a weekly allowance.

I always knew you could get away with murder in LoS.  If you have the right amount of money. But did not expect it to be so low.

But to commit a murder and then just hand your self in...is..........................Normal here.

 

But kill dozens on the road....you scarper sharpish in to the jungle....there is no logic to any of this.
Obviously nature used a different wiring loom  and probably a low wattage power supply for the cranium.

 So you want to justify this disgusting murder ?

Umm ... how did you leap to that bizarre conclusion? People here were saying that the low 'fee' in this case reflects a lack of Thai respect for life, so I was curious what the situation is in other countries.

 

Trust me ... if I want to justify or defend something, you will know it

200,000 Baht was the total price. 100,000 for the pickup driver,70,000 Baht for two others and 30,000 Baht for the poor sucker who did the deed.

Money which "Dao" herself probably fleeced from the senior policeman in the first place. Just a thought.

 

After all, the married senior policeman allegedly had an extramarital affair with "Dao", who in turn allegedly had an affair with the murder victim, who in turn allegedly maintained a merry-go-round with "other women". The doofus in the whole story? The low-life 24-year-old milk beard who thought that being paid 3,000 Baht was worth committing murder for. And you know what? I wouldn't be half surprised if it eventually came to light that the doofus had an affair with "Dao", too. Or the policeman. 

55555...You have painted the perfect scenario...Kudos...! No doubt it will become the next soap opera episode, somewhere...5555

In the 1970s it was 5,000 baht a hit.I guess that the so called gangsters are having hard times competing with all the armatures killing for free.


In Udorn Thani, back in 1973, I was told it was only $50.00 (1000B?) for a hit.  They guy that told me claimed to have killed 3 men with a hand grenade and a Thompson sub-machine gun.  This while showing me the Thompson that had been recently fired.

I think it's time to pack up and leave this place.  As much as I hate the 'it a'int what it used to be brigade', it a'int what it used to be.  Do I really want my kids growing up in this country is the question, even if I can tolerate, or ignore it, can they ?  I arrived here in '94 and have seen a lot, but lately...

 

Well, I certainly wouldn't be wanting to raise my children to be hitmen.  At 3,000 baht a job, they'll never be able to support themselves.  

 

I guess I'll have to send them to college so they can get a real job or send them overseas for more lucrative hitman markets.

Many people make the mistake of thinking that 3,000 baht is the all-in rate for murder.  

 

3,000 baht is the cost for the actual deed

 

Then you have overhead like getting rid of the hitman (possibly hiring another hitman or doing the job yourself), paying off the cops to not investigate, etc, etc.  

 

Unless you're having people knocked off in bulk, you're never going to get the right kind of pricing to make it worthwhile.
