While I agree you have to be an idiot to walk off and leave any device behind you, I’m not sure you can gaol someone for being stupid. 

 

For one thing the gaols would be flooded with the guilty. They are overcrowded as it is...

I think  everyone has done that at least once in their lives.  I know I have... I saw a group of Koreans walk off and then I noticed an expensive  camera  they left behind. .  I picked it up and waited .. 2 minutes later a guy came running back for it.  He was so gratefull.. also a couple waiting for the movies got up and left a cell phone  on the seat.. I walked over and told them..   a little good will goes a long way..   great work by the security.. WELL DONE..

If anyone thinks I am a thief because some other westerners stole some stuff, then I would think they are ignorant for generalizing. 

 

Kind of like how some posters on here think all Thais behave the same way :) 

Plenty THAIS steal  too.. !!!

An Indian stole many TV's...here, Swiss nationals steal a laptop and it will carry on.

 

The lesson of this story could also be a lesson for the future to the few regular sour bashers around....dishonesty is universal and not related to a specific nationality.

 

Another consequence could arise on the short term -  the Thaïs may tend put all farangs in the same basket, as dishonest.

   What have a couple of hard-core thieves, aged 60 <deleted>, got to do with a couple of fun loving gays who simply made a cultural error?

They are both in Bangkok jails ?

The couple will get to avoid all the snow and yodelling of Switzerland for at least another 5 weeks.  While they might not get much of a tan, I'm sure they will lose a little weight while guests of the Thai government.  Nice Catch Swampy security

If he bends over to pick up the soap he might do some involuntary yodeling

In today's world - entrapment. That old story - if by killing someone totally unrelated to you could receive some substantial benefit with no risk ... would you do it? Some old Twilight Zone episode I think. Of course they miscalculated, but the thinking is clear.

The Thai owner should also be jailed for being so stupid

Yeah! sorry about that, but the vast majority of "guilty" in Thai prisons either pleaded guilty to get a lesser sentence, or were found guilty as they couldn't afford a lawyer. If you don't have money and a lawyer, you cannot fight a charge with a realistic chance of being found not guilty. It reinforces my first point that the prisons are full of poor people, who are not necessarily actually guilty of the charges. The judicial system here is unnaturally harsh and allows those with money to walk away, while penalizing the poor.

 

Can you please list the countries where the poor are not penalized in the legal system and the rich do not have an unfair advantage?
