  1. Wow, never thought of that! You sound highly intelligent. Why don't you try to get all people out of the loop who make money off you too? Grow your own food, make your own clothes, build your own car and home better get some sheep for wool, and grow some cotton, get some land. Hmm, how will you find gas and oil? That might be hard. You will have many projects to keep you busy as well as learning medicine or you can just let yourself die. Remember to build a coffin before please.
  2. That must have been the WORLD survey where they limited it to only islands IN Thailand in order to get that result ...Obviously!!!
  3. Because one man admits killing someone because the dead man allegedly said he was a child sex offender does not make my statement untrue. I happened to have worked with the Dept of Corrections with child sex offenders who were just getting out on parole ..if they all got killed while serving their sentence, I think I would heard about that and not had a job.
  4. Well, that really is NOT what happens. ..I know some people like to think that, but this is a myth.
  5. OMG, there is so much wrong with everything you just said!! 1) The man is 38. 2) Who said he was watching porn and this caused his actions? You? Did Asia know nothing of sex until the internet came along? Do children in other countries not share porn and things they find in magazines and on the internet with what we can assume should be the same consequences? 3) Has porn ever been shown to be the cause of rape? 4) Who has determined that Western Societies are "sick"? Would that be you again? 5) Taxes on "farang tourists and expats in Thailand" to provide medical help and counseling for Thai youth ...great idea! I think you should be the first to step up and donate everything you own!! Please come up with a plan how to manage this program, what help you will provide, how much it will cost, how much each of us will pay, how much will go for corruption and waste, and finally please outline what the exact benefits will be!! Thank you very much.
  6. While I appreciate that I think you are angry about this, I must say that this is NOT a Thai thing! I have experience with this EXACT kind of case, and with professional men in the US. Men who are good looking, who have money, who are successful, who are married and can get SEX any time they want. Who also do get sex often as they want. This is not about sex per se. This is why I am telling you all that this is a RAPE thing, nothing more and nothing less.
  7. I am talking about said .."this happens about 1O times a week here to men" as if who gives a damn!! Next, your idea about getting punished for what you have done..great! There is a difference between murder and attempted murder. I am not calling what he did by drugging people murder. I am calling it "taking a risk with a person's life that may kill them, that they did not consent to, with illegal drugs, for purposes of committing a serious crime against them." For example, drunk driving, why is it illegal? If you drive home and nothing bad happens? No harm no foul according to your argument. We will only bust those people who are drunk and actually cause some harm? We want to keep the harm from happening so we make drunk driving illegal. That is public policy. We want to keep people from dying due to getting drugged so we don't want to only penalize the people who gamble with our lives and actually lose!! I don't know what your other comments are doing here, religious nuts and so forth, have no meaning to me in this context. You also keep confusing the death sentence and life sentence ..these two things are not the same. Only you ever spoke of a death sentence.
  8. Are you kidding me? You think it is okay to risk someone's life while raping them, without even having any consent for that? For taking the drugs, for the sex ..for any of it?? He didn't say "execute him" he said "give him a life sentence" and if you knew a damn thing about sex offenders you might know that they often don't change from any amount of therapy, punishment, or even aging out like other kind of offenders. If you would like to test this with yourself ..I might be able to help you, give me a call.
  9. Let me say it again ..He is a RAPIST. Rapists, rape people. Doesn't matter what their education is or if they will shame their family. He is not someone with a "little problem" that just got out of hand.
  10. AND?? So that is okay then??? People get murdered 10 times a week somewhere too, shall we just forget the whole thing??
  11. So the women were not in danger according to you?? They were raped and filmed and that was spread around the internet, and they could have died from a drug OD of some sort. And you think that punishment or therapy should be porn and sex toys at home sound very informed you work for a government agency by chance and make policies?
  12. Because he is a RAPIST. Rapists don't do this because they just want some sex. They are not calling this rape per se because in Thai law, as I remember, you must have penetration. He may not have gone that far, simply because the women may have noticed it later and there would be some evidence? However, he is still a rapist.
  13. Not just HERE, that is a standard way to get to children around the world. This is common in Western countries as well ...just the Mothers may not realize it as readily as in some other places.
  14. Gosh, that was quite harsh of you! Why would you take the side of this spouse? You don't know anything about him, but he is 20 years younger, seemed to be a "secret marriage" which doesn't sound good ...who says he did a damn thing for this grandmother? Maybe he was some kind of gigolo who married her for her money and was just waiting in the background all of these years and not even with her?? If he was NOT that kind of guy ..he should have some money of his own, he just got a lot of money from her ..he is 80 now ..I am sure they had a home to live in? That isn't pretty good? If you want to argue it, WHY does the man, expect ALL the money of a woman he married at 80 years old? She had a life before him that was rather long and she had people and family who came before him, did she not?? Is a man not capable of taking care of himself to some extent? If they got divorced what would he have gotten? We don't know but not 100% that is sure. And if and when he dies, maybe in ONE year ..where will all that money go? To his heirs and totally miss her heirs now!! There is a REASON for these laws which give money to children and grandchildren no matter what ..this is ONE of the reasons!!
  15. This money that you "received years ago, before he was married to your Grandmother, from your Father and her" was that in some way documented to be deducted from a future inheritance?? Or is that just something that he WISHES to happen?? Or something that she complained about in later years, because she was angry? I'm not sure you can gift money and then deduct it from inheritance ...certainly it seems like there would be some formal procedure for this?? Especially money from your FATHER. You need to get clear about this issue. It may not be an legal issue ...and then get clear about how much the money should be. If it should be $750K-800K to split between you and your sister, then go for that amount. Remember the words here ...they are "take this low amount of $150K now to avoid the RISK of a lawsuit ...or the THREAT to go to court." He doesn't want to do those things either, those cost him money also, he knows you are in Thailand, he might think you are desperate for quick cash and will go for it!! Most people do. Just insist on the full amount and wait and wait. Be calm and don't show any need or impatience. He thinks he is in the position of power and you think you (he thinks) you are the weak one ..change this in your mind, and find the way to have some power in this negotiation ..which might just be to show that you don't need this money and you will WAIT. The law isn't always about the law, it is about who negotiates better. Don't cloud the issues, in your mind, or with your lawyers, with old stories about the 1940s and who stole this or that, and who was greedy that with your friends. Stop trying to CONVINCE him that he should pay YOU more ...he is ASKING YOU to ACCEPT LESS and SIGN right? Say NO. That to me, means he should pay you the full amount and he will have to convince the court, WHY he should not have to pay that full amount. Maybe he can't do it. Maybe he only has a small chance in hell. Don't talk to him anymore, he is your enemy. You might just have to pay to show up in court and little else, if it ends up there. He will have the burden to show why he shouldn't pay you and to prepare all of that. These countries like France have this law for a reason make families leave money to heirs without their choice and they are fairly strong laws as far as I know. He got 75% and I think the court would look at that ..he is only a spouse. You are a blood relative and getting very little.
