Nice to see the people rise up and demanding something. Has been waiting long time to see that happen. It´s the only thing that will change something.

Considering that tourism under the current government is nudging to generating 12% of GDP and more than 10% of the population is directly or indirectly generating an income from provision of services - what's your problem?

 

Might want to check your figures :-)

This happens everyday somewhere in Thailand. Nothing will ever change. No one will be put in prison where they all belong. If the penalties here were the same as any western country things might change. Maybe. But that will never happen.

"no one will be put in prison"

Of course they will!

This is sad all the way around ... the fugitive cop was shot in the line of duty about a year ago. Wonder if that was related to his loss of good judgement. Many careers ruined too ... and for what? Petty, petty, petty ... what a pity!

Yet again, the 'tourist image' thing seems a bigger priority than the severity of the crime !

it should not matter about the revenue generated but the seriousness of the crime should matter and that should be the reason for the investigation and if the evidence points to it the prosecution but TIT

I wonder if the tourist operators on Koh Tao could be as upstanding or are they more terrified by control.

Oh dear.I dunno.There was I soooo naively thinking that a policeman's job was to protect the public.

The law must be change to send all corruptors Police to prison and not transfer them...

They move them to an inactive post because they cannot fire them 'they know where all the bodies are buried' and could bring the whole system crashing down. Moving to an inactive post is not for the crimes it's for being stupid and getting caught.

I am not a soccer/football fan by any stretch, but reading so many of these stories on TV and elsewhere the phrase "own goal" always springs to mind!!
