We also come to Thailand to get away from these badly behaved drunken louts

 

I doubt it.

Many people consider that middle aged men who travel to Thailand are just that.

He might graffiti, someone else might P4P. Both are disgusting from differing perspectives.

So don't be so quick to find fault.

It's a minor issue, but it cost manpower to put it right and bring them to justice, a hefty fine should be enough.

Silly suggestions for prison etc, just make you look like angry old men.

I don't consider myself bitter or angry, but I do get annoyed when halfwits from the west decide to do mindless graffiti on iconic things like this. Had he done it down a narrow alleyway on the back of a building somewhere, I'd agree a drunken prank. The fact he had the spray paint with him in the first place would indicate some sort of planning, right? 

 

If you care so much about him, you might want to start visiting him in prison. A fine doesn't really cut it when those in the western world are generally more affluent than those in Thailand. Mummy and Daddy will probably pay for it if he couldn't and there would be no lesson learnt. 

 

But that is exactly how you appear. If it walks like a duck.....

 

Seriously, take a breath. It's not that serious. As aforementioned, he perhaps though it was the thing to do and was proven wrong. There is a lot worse happening around us. Keep it in perspective.

True. If they'd found it spanning the road, they probably would have knocked it down too.

I havent suggested that he gets sent to prison though .

Not sure why you are bringing prostitution, age and  anger issues into the equation

While I do see your perspective and I'm generally not one for overly draconian sentences, ultimately it doesn't matter what any of us think. It's the Thai justice system who will make the decision on this. It's their field and their rules.

 

Whatever they decide, I won't be feeling any sympathy for him for that very reason, in the same way I don't for people who feel the wrath of their heavy handed drug laws. We all know when we come here that their justice system is a bit primitive and overzealous, particularly to foreigners. If he didn't, then he should have at least done his research before he decided to break the law. There was a kiwi kid a few years back who got banged up for 18 months for stealing a taxi drivers' cell phone and doing a runner from the cab without paying the fare. His explanation was basically that he used to get really light sentences for that sort of stuff in NZ. He learned the hard way that not everyone is as lenient as the NZ justice system.

Perhaps they could use defense of being under lots of stress.... can't recall the crime, but didn't some mucky muck get off with that month or two ago? "Couldn't help it, your lordship. I was suffering culture shock!"
