If you find one bad apple in a Barrel there's probably plenty more...

Just how much jail time are these low-lifes being given? I have a feeling it depends how much money you have and how much "pull". The Thai police love to make an example out of some luckless falang caught with a few ecstacy pills or a half ounce of marijuana, by giving them what amounts to a life sentence, but a Mr Big caught with a pick-up load of yaba is out in 6 months.

 

If you get caught feeding the wrong fish then its jailtime and an extended stay in Thailand until trial.

 

So this cop gets a holiday from inactivity and gets caught extorting again, what's the next level of "punishment"?

 

Maybe they have a hierarchy of inactivities?

The chief said that most problems on the island stemmed from the drugs trade. Criminals Police were selling or offering drugs to tourists then robbing or extorting them, he said.

Just correcting the reporting.

Another Detriment for travel to The Land of Smiles. Soon stories like these will become more and more in the forethought of people looking for an island holiday. With Cambodia and Myanmar getting their act together attractive alternatives will be presenting themselves with increasing frequency. Will the Thai authorities wait until numbers drop like a rock before attempting real change?

What do you think?

Jiap knows how to run the Police office, also make them run, and run away!

 

He might be expecting a jail soon, so 10 days holiday in between, wow!

 

I suspect he as big connection. Expect another Kho-Tao ?

Simple misspelling.

 

Should have read farce not force.

And the media, even after their own 'reforms' never follow up. 

Nor does the junta it would appear. They have complete, unopposed, god-like powers. Why aren't they reforming the police?

Involves work and effort? Doesn't involve revenge against the Shin crowd?

He's damn lucky his girlfriend/wife didn't tradgically die in a jet ski accident, while out riding with him,, or he'd be facing 5 years in PRISON and be in court for it before her body even made it home... I'd use the term, sickening,, but that just doesn't come even close....

Double standards. The @#$_head probably got a medal for his bravery.

Thai authorities from what i see WILL NOT enforce laws. They only round up change and punish those that try to step out side of the corrupt cesspool to make things better for all.

Thia poor guy was doing his job by the sounds of it. Problem is he got caught so hes Had to sit a few scams out.

The case has forced the chief to admit there are some bad apples in his barrel but he claimed that "almost 100% of his force were upstanding honest cops". 555555, bad luck if you meet the other %...!?!?!?

The chief was presented with a floral bouquet by hoteliers and tourist operators on the island in conjunction with the two victims - husband and wife Anton,36, and Ekaterina Lobanov, 35, who thanked the chief for his swift and decisive action so far.

 

I think that horse bolted.  If there had been swift and decisive action, the guy would have been in jail instead of back extorting tourists.

 

Hopefully, he'll be forced to do the right thing this time by the social media attention.  Of course, he may just prosecute the evil-doers who put their dirty laundry up on social media...

Those so called upstanding honest cops are anything but simply because they know who the corrupt ones are but do nothing about them. Upstanding and honest is not about turning a blind eye to corrupt partners. Absolute and total reform is the only way to change the RTP.

What the heck?? Can I believe this absurdity?

 

This criminal given a pat on the back asks for holiday time (!!) instead of being hauled off to jail in chains as an example of what the upholders of law and order cannot do!

The chief of police has the bl**dy nerve to state his rotten cops are fine upstanding honest men.

You (pay to ?) become a cop in Thailand to soak the locals and foreigners and enrich yourself. 

 

Every single day we see examples of what a totally lawless country this is.

That is true of course, as we all know that one bad apple in a barrel can very quickly turn all the other apples bad.

I think I asked a question that was somewhat rhetorical, and a kind member of the forum was nice enough to give an honest response...

You have to wonder if this particular cop has always known who to share with in the past.

The Russians had bravely gone to cops after they were picked up off Hat Rin beach and bundled into a Chevrolet pick-up after they were approached over a fake drugs deal. They were then driven away and robbed by the gang.

That says it all! ! ! You need to be brave, or very brave in Thailand to report to cops you've been robbed by their colleagues...

Was this a scene from the movie Lie Lie Land? On which planet is the "chief" living?

Yet more proof that the admin of BIB has absolutely no genuine or serious interest in cleaning up corruption within their ranks. Look at how they (did not) handle this guy.

 

Always inactive posts. Almost never prosecuted and sent to jail. Why???

 

And you'll notice, we almost never hear of what happens to these guys AFTER they're sent to inactive posts. It's not like they stay there forever. Probably in most cases, a brief cooling off period and then back to robbing, stealing, extorting, etc.

 

give them a break, they still have over 19 years to be free of corruption.

Shouldn't it read after being given a "legal inactive post"?
