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?

And how much of gdp is lost/wasted due to corruption?

When caught he will say sorry and offer the Russians a wai. If the Russian man has any balls he would kick him in the teeth while the hypocrite is kneeling in front of him,show the Thai public what we think of their stupid wai's. In many places in the world kidnapping alone would get him a life sentence,let's see how many months he gets here.

I know its not right to generalize. However, when it comes to Thailand the lyrics of "Sympathy for the Devil" are pointing it out:

"Just as every cop is a criminal. And all the sinners saints. As heads is tails."

I believe he will face court and prison.

He has fled because he knows he will and that is because influential people are pursuing this.

Agree with you but I'd bet on the Russian getting a more severe sentence for kicking the cop in the teeth than the cop would ever get for the kidnap & imprisonment of the Russians.

policeman ring leader will never be apprehended, gang will go to jail, tourists satisfied, policeman starts a new gang and the beat goes on and on, as long as the correct revenue split is adhered to on regular basis

When i became a member of TV we use to have a different subjects to talk about on this forum.

Nowadays every news are packed with crime crime and more where local police gangsters are coming on day light venue.

I can find a lot of information and opinions about world holidays where people of other sites looking for opinion.

Yes , slowly LOS becoming as " wild west " Thai style....

The problem with many Police Departments worldwide, especially in developing and third world countries are the Police are grossly underpaid.

 

When they lose it all from lack of adequate cash flow, mounting bills, foreclosure threats, and the ability to save, they lose it.  Especially, if a family member not in the household is sick or injured and money is needed for further medical treatment or to pay mounting bills.

 

This problem will no doubt accelerate with a worldwide economic retreat.

Actually, "4 members of the public" got arrested (the ones in the picture), one police officer (the "boss', gang leader) has run away. So, not a single policeman got arrested, ergo the positive side is not so positive, so far...

With 32.59 million foreign guests visiting Thailand in 2016 (source wikipedia) I don't think the Thais are too worried about the foreign press, do you?
