"Big Joke" kicking football betting out of Thailand during the World Cup!

Pictures (3): Thai Tourist Police

 

The Tourist Police's star striker - Maj Gen Surachet Hakpal - has given the red card to three online football betting operations in Thailand.

 

The TPB website featured pictures of the crime busting deputy commissioner, known as Big Joke in the Thai media, taking down website operations in Hua Hin, Nakorn Sri Thammarat and Hat Yai.

One picture showed him with a football. Another showed him meeting troops next to a helicopter.

 

The joint operations with officers from Regions 7,8 and 9 resulted in many arrests and the seizure of a mountain of electronic equipment used by the gangs to take bets on the World Cup.

Thaivisa notes that last week's attempt to seek the arrest of a Thai woman in London posting disparaging pictures about the military junta online seems to have been put on the back burner leading many to suggest it was a bit of an own goal.

And the picture with a helicopter is to say what???? good luck to him trying to stop people from gambling, Thai punters are waiting 4 years for such opportunity to blow their hard earned cash to the wind, and than to cry and go out and rob someplace to get some money back to pay the loan sharks...

OK, I'll ask. What's TPB?

For a split second I thought The Pirate Bay. Then I was thinking perhaps Thai PBS. Now I see a link at the foot of the article to the Tourist Police website.

In one of those photo opportunity pics, behind the six bigwigs  there's a sign in the background saying 'Police Tourist Bureau', which would make it PTB.

Big Joke might think he is making some dent in the online gambling but it truth he is trying to push <deleted> uphill with a chopstick. If this government had a half a brain, which it hasn't, they would legalise betting for certain sports with restrictions, like registered bookies and time and bet limitations.

Think of the taxes they would collect for hospitals and education er......for junta and PM popularity buying and more helicopters and huge heavy duty plastic backdrop signage for Big Joke. 

 

What do they do with those big plastic signs after these pr news conferences?

 

Have they not heard of interactive screens?

Nice helicopter $10 million bucks worth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurocopter_EC155 .... no old Bell helos for the Big Joke, rank has it's privileges... 

Haven't heard the "whup whup" of those old helicopters for a while now. They used to have one at the Border Police base north of Chiang Rai, but that seems to have gone.

Maybe they have finally given up trying to keep them flying...

Perhaps they're going to use them as patrol cars - with the appropriate 'wide vehicle' sign of course. Or was it 'wide boy'?
