  1. Algerian arrested for stealing from Korean tourist in Pattaya

    It looks like they are all pointing at that one cop............ He may be the one who found the bag and other stuff and 'pocketed' the cash............. LOL...........
  2. Algerian arrested for stealing from Korean tourist in Pattaya

    This......... written in the OP got my attention........... "but the cash had been all spent."................??????????????? With a reputation like the Thai (Pattaya) Police have........... Can't you just imagine that the story could have read -------- "Police found the bag and 'played' FINDERS, KEEPERS..... with the money" Quite comparable to stories where police raid 'Home Card Games' and the story reads ---- "And 80 Baht was seized and held as evidence........ " WHERE is the rest of the 'table stakes'???? ... LOL ...
  3. I showed the videos to my Thai wife............. she said she saw on Thai TV that this cop has already been transfered to another post or maybe inactive post pending investigation.......... Let's hope that justice will prevail (doubtful in Thai under current 'Police State regime') but let's hope for the 'Right side' to prevail.............. "God Bless" modern cameras such as the one that captured this video.......... This is simply a reminder to ALL OF US........... about how much of this crap is just 'everyday abuse' in Thailand by those who are being paid to 'serve and protect' the people............. There are MANY good Thai cops and we hear about them 'sometimes'............ but seems that the good ones are in 'Minority' compared to the ones like this guy....... and it seems there is no (or little) deterrent to stop the bad ones.............. What 'good' has the present gov't done to correct this?????????? .............. Nothing............ Submarines (etc.) are distracting the present Gov't from even noticing this common occurance............ My Thai wife has 2 older brothers in the (RTP) police in Korat............ And I think that they are nearly as bad as this guy............ so I do have a bit of personal 'insight'.....................
  4. Can you just imagine the other 'crap' he pulls routinely???????? Him and many like him............. Not to discredit the few very decent cops who we all commend on occasions......... But the likes of this guy are much to plentiful........ and seldom caught or challenged............ It appears that the filming is done so as him not to notice................ They will probably penalize the shop owner for 'Defamation' now............. LOL............... TIT... (This is Thailand).......... OR ........... TITT (This is Thailand Today)............. Currently a well endowed police state, endowed with the likes of this cop............
  5. Some folks on here are more 'tuned in to the local channel' than others............ I don't stay in Thailand but I spend 50% of my time here....... I love Thailand and I love the 'common' Thais.............. for the past 30 plus years I have loved Thailand and I still do love Thailand............ But you can't paint just a single picture of Thailand.......... It has 'many faces'.......... The 'faces' I have loved over the years are the 'common Thais', as well as the beautiful beaches, islands, farm-lands,etc.......... I am from USA..... But all I know is Thailand............ I know and love the country and its common people............ What I DON'T like, is the HiSo people...... The corrupt people and government, the people in charge starting way back to Thaksin and his 'Clan' and right up to the present day ruler who thinks he is 'improving the face of Thailand' while filling his own pockets as the past elected officials have done.............. ALL AT THE EXPENSE of the Thais that I love............ Many on here share parts of my belief and 'berate' Thailand for the same reasons.............. Now days everything is to help the ARMY (and Navy... Submarines) and its 'Chosen Few' and has abandoned it's common people.... Nowhere can you see today any concern for improving education so 15 year old girls have fewer babies that the Thai boys desert and leave to raise babies alone....... because the government wants submarines or "rice schemes' more than taking care of it's population that is 'hurting' for education.......... I am not writing this post to 'hurt' anybody on TV.com........ But just offering some 'food for thought' .................... Many are angry at 'Thailand' and want to leave but most of them still LOVE some parts of 'Thailand' (Mostly the Issan people)........ But are complaining about the 'trusted care-takers'................ (and 'Grafters') (and maybe a few 'ladyboys'......... LOL........)
  6. Thankfully Thay met a few of the 'GOOD ONES'............. What is normal is in the news MORE often....... Thumbs up for these BIB..........
  7. The OP has been in Thailand long enough to talk to her in Thai and reads it as well...... He has been here a long time........... WHY is he surprised to find a Thai gal on a hooker site that is trying to scam a farang.......... Is that worse than a farang trying dating sites to try to get a little 'nookie' for free under 'pretense' of being interested in a future with her ????????????? Another Farang 'Cheap Charlie' ......... LOL.............
  8. Negative............ Last name Robinson....... From California........... Why did you think Sotrios?????? Is this pertinent to this post about a girl on a dating site???????????????
  9. Yes....... a wonderful example and I totally agree.......... Some guys for some reason feel that they can earn money from women for sexually pleasing them or even get the pleasures of some women by misleading them into thinking that they offer 'something' for the girls future......... They are only looking for something for 'free' as they have no intent to 'better' the girl's life....... Just use them for personal gratification for FREE............ Cheap Charlies..... The lot of them...... But they will make up an excuse to 'justify' their selfish plight......... Just as our 'welfare receipients' do in the US to justify their laziness to work for money...........
  10. PM Prayut presses authorities on road safety

    Keeo on 'Pressing................. BOSS........... It is not, however, the same as really doing something 'which will be HELPFUL'.............. LOL............. But at least you will say...... that you pressed for it................
  11. Wow.......... I hope very much --- That you are kidding..................... As far as 'Men' selling themselves....... I cannot imagine a market..... EXCEPT among the GAYS............. And certainly you will never get a 'single Baht' In Thailand, for your sexual expertise, from a Thai woman............ You might have a bit of luck with that with a 'rich widow' in Beverly Hills or Hollywood (if you are above average looking)............ But please don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen in Thailand......... I have a friend from USA that scams a few of the girls on dating sites, making the girls think he is 'Marriage Material' and the girls use much of their parent's college money on Him then they 'kick him out'....... That guy the worst of the 'cheap-charlies'........... IMHO that guy is worse than the girl mentioned in OP and may be responsible for 'Hardening' a nice girl into what we have in this OP............ If you aren't going to marry the girl and you know it from the start...... Then..... You are the culprit......... STEALING YOUR OWN PERSONAL PLEASURES FROM HER RATHER THAN 'PAYING' THE 'GOING PRICE' ..................... And if you are one that believes that 'they' are being 'pleased' by YOU..... In Bed ...... and you are 'earning your keep' by pleasing HER.............. Then in my humble opinion............ You may wake up 'shocked' someday......... But then again, you may never wake up to realize 'what is wrong', because you already 'KNOW' it is 'everybody else'...... LOL.....
  12. YOU are Sooooooooo RIGHT.............. While the fat/rich insurance companies get richer....... Makes me wonder if some 'Heads' of Government/Army aren't shareholders???? TIT...................... (This Is Thailand)................... (Modern Day Thailand)......................... (Used to be known as 'Land of Smiles')..................
  13. Maybe the 'Frenchman' could just 'Wai' the police and FBI and be free like the girl who stole the 4,900 Aussie Dollars while her 'customer' was in the 'john'......... LOL.......... TIT............ Fortunately for the girl that the FBI wasn't involved in her case....... LOL.....
  14. An open request.

    Let's face it........... They would probably not want to read Thai or English................ And would prefer NOT BE ASKED to cease something that they and their grandparents have done since long before 'The White Man' (Farangs) came along............. They aren't ready for the modern world............ They don't understand 'IT' (the Modern World) In my time around Ban Chang I have had it pointed out to me that it is some of the 'Cheapest Real Estate' in all Thailand....... And a reason given was all the Polution created by the Refineries and Factories in Maup Ta Phut...... just nearby...... Nobody wants to live in that Pollution........
  15. An open request.

    This a perfect example of what happens when 'the only effort' you put into something is a one line or 5 words reply........ One can read it many ways when just a few words are said....... Yes and NO are the only short sentences that will normally be understood by all of us......... That is why I normally take the time to write more explicitly and more than a one liner EXCEPY for occasions where I do write a one-liner to reply to "one-liners" Now.... the next hurdle is..........'Can he write to 'THEM' in Thai...........
