MOST of theses incidents, I did say most, are the result of alcohol, screaming and scuffles. Actually I'm surprised we don't see more of this. I have seen farangs behaving badly to the point that I felt they should take a beating. I have seen Thai police take abuse that no one should have to take and the abusers are normally able to pay a fine, sober up in jail then be on their way. No one wants to see anyone shot but tempers, alcohol and guns don't mix. I wouldn't think about that in my home country much less a foreign country.
