  1. The problem with calling is throwing the baby out with the bath water.... We are talking about domesticated dogs vs wild animals.... now one gets into what is/becomes a wild or dangerous dog(s)? Strict criteria needs to be generated and followed.... In the state of California, it has clear written protocol on assessing dog behavior with appropriate action plans for each classification.... dogs rely on the sense of smell and the innate ability to read fear in people or pose danger to them...ride your bike slowly with confidence and no direct eye contact and 98% will back down/lose interest.... to the fool who rides fast in a get away plan....
  2. Male anger and control over step children....women with young children who re-marry/obtain boyfriends should be held accountable for child abuse.... my guess is Thai culture is off the charts for this crime...
  3. Why would you want to render assistance to <deleted>?
  4. The Drunk CM student who killed 3 bicyclists got 2 years and just appealed it...it has been over 2 years since the accident and she has yet to spend one night in jail...she should have been locked up until the verdict but not in LOS... i I prefer the CA serial cat killer who got 16 years just this week....justice was done..
  5. We used to flatten coins on tracks when we were kids.... thailand has much bigger problems than worrying about a benign farang... how about not executing or abusing children when misbehaving or land deals gone bad... Get your priorities in order thailand...
  6. My guess is not a design flaw but he wasn't fastened in properly from the get go..easy to blame the deceased for an error...expert witnesses would unravel this if an operator cover up... why are you guys buying what the operator says is fact? Needs an independent investigation not involving police nor tourism industry ...
  7. Thailand gets a bad rap on many things sometimes overblown... But this one truly shows the inequity corruption favoritism and lack of a fair justice system in thailand... this one is ugly for the Thai common person and reinforces third world in thailand to the comment above about child abuse happens also in the west...the difference is many more checks and balances are in place and much tougher legal system handles the case through due process... the lack of accountability and due process keeps thailand from not only advancing to first world status but stuck in a very dark place...
  8. It was not just changing lanes trying to go from lane 1 crossing over two other lanes to get get into a u-turn or merging into another road of fast moving traffic... as we say in tennis the driver was completely out of position...unable to realize their mistake, put themselves in an at risk position...as I always say a motorcycle mentality here.... proper driving would have have been merging over lane by lane getting to the speed of traffic until in the far right lane allowing for your next driving action.... laziness and and not knowing how to properly handle situations can be a deadly combo..what the driver wanted to do was not possible at the point of DM...did not demonstrate proper training whether received it or not....
  9. How much did he contribute to fall? Too aggressive?
  10. Old enough to know right from wrong - should be tried as an adult he'll be out at 18 in the junvinal system and will continue his destructive behaviors and ways ... Sue the state for future crimes he commit...
  11. The hospital is at fault for not reporting it to the local district attorney's office...child abuse reporting should be mandatory.... the police should only have limited responsibilities - upholding the law and enforcement... charges and and convivtions rests with the DA office and judicial system... how their system works need reform or police have too much power
  12. I think you mean the HRV and not CRV? The CRV meets the definition of SUV in my eyes but these smaller sub compacts like Eco XV HRV and Juke has zero storage for sports/recreational equipment..a station wagon design like the Subaru outback has more interior space/storage than these sub compacts...
  13. In today's world of technology, Seems they always find an old-fashioned letter....
  14. Really need to change the definition of flashing lights...should be a communication method allowing the other driver to proceed... currently anyone flashing is a dick...accomplishes nothing...when a car is coming in the opposite direction I will assume he will continue in that direction...flashing lights does not deter anyone to change their mind...I make the u-turn decision based on speed of other vehicle...flashing lights have no bearing on my decision making...my mind is already made up before flashing whether to stop or go thais just don't understand flashing on how they do it now serves no benefit...
