Central Pattaya knife attack leaves American seriously injured

Recommended Posts

" Khun Prasit aged 29 works as a part-time masseur, when he is not at his full-time job as a butcher." The man was only doing his job.

Some guys hail from countries where explosive bursts of anger are recognized as a legitimate release of tension. "John is a good guy, he gets pissed off sometimes, yet he means well." is a very common observation in said countries. However, such outbursts are viewed quite differntly in LoS. Hopefully, this will serve as a warning to the uninformed.

Incidently, the victim could have picked up his bicycle to defend against the knife.

Was he on a pushbike then??? AT 10.30PM Too

So let me get this straight. The Thai was in the wrong breaking the law (going the wrong way), CAUSED the accident. Yet its ok to cut someone because they got upset? Yes blame the Americans who all have hot tempers and no manners.

I cant see the article, was the attacker arrested? one thing I have noticed about thailand is that attacks like this seem to be accepted by both the public and the police

What bothers me is the number of posters who seem to be implying the Thai was somehow justified in his actions. Whilst we may not know all the facts anybody who pulls a knife and inflicts that kind of damage is guilty of attempted murder and should spend a very long time behind bars.

If you or your loved ones are in danger then this may be acceptable, but this ridiculous bullshit Thai idea of loss of face is not sufficient justification for trying to kill someone.

Thais are 'CHILDREN WITH GUNS'. They are mostly dim and unable to process their emotions, they will never be able to compete with the other ASEAN nations, I worry for the future of this country.

Have to agrree, about the attempted murder bit, but rest of the post is quite frankly ridiculous

If you're a newbie reading this thread don't let the doom and gloom merchants put you off. These incidents are few and far between., 99.99999% of us live and play here and never ever encounter stuff like this

I have been attacked randomly a couple of times, it does happen, but most Thais are nice people

The American chap was extremely lucky he was only cut and not shot, there will be just as many people carrying guns beneath the seat of their bikes as there are carrying knives!

How bad is this, the guy was carrying. A knife, ??? Who in there right mind would carry a knife ???

I know a few things annoy us here, but it ain't worth confronting any of them, you just never know.....

Hope the guy makes a full recovery....

Knife seems to go well with a butcher.

Perhaps a butcher on meth?

The meth problem has blown out world wide.

I have been assaulted by someone on meth in Australia

You're right. The Asian way, and this goes for most Asian countries is to apologise for everything, even when you know what you did

was deliberate.

Its just the way it is.

Add "ice" or coke or meth or steroids and alcohol and pride to people as tough and independent as the Thais

We farangs should know what to do.

Lying in a pool of blood, you look up at them and say "I'm so sorry." Saving their face can save your arse.

tHIS is very bad. why oh why dont the thais act like americans, brits, italians

What? You want Thais to start shooting kids in school? And bombing innocent civilians in countries far away? Thais kill and injure a lot less people than Americans.

The difference is the whack jobs in the US who shoot all the kids in a school are just that-psychos. The Thais here who stab people for no reason are the norm.

I remember one day on Huey Keaw rd near Kad Suan Keaw I honked one time at a red truck who had blocked the bike lane. The driver got out with a foot long machete and threatened me. This was during the day at a light in full view of traffic and maybe couple hundred feet from where the cop sits in his hut. I was petrified.

Another time I had a raincoat got stuck in the chain on my motorbike. I could not pull it out. A nice Thai person stopped and produced another foot long knife from under his bike seat and cut it off for me. I suspect they all carry a knife or a gun here. I'm just surprised they guy got caught.

This is not a country of common sense. They what they do because they can with no repercussions. I'm surprised the American didn't get arrested or maybe he did. Thai justice at it's best. What happened to the cap driver who killed the guy in Bangkok with a Samurai sword?

A chef or a butcher would carry a knife, which is what he did for his full time job

Nonsense, unless he was looking for road kill

Didn't know he would take his work home with him, so to speak. Also note, however, he was returning from his job as a masseur...

As a Chef I took my knife bag home with me on public transport every night (and fly with it for overseas jobs) as it's contained a large investment crucial to my employment. He could have gone from one job or the next, of course I don't know if this was the case in this matter nor if a butcher knife was used as the weapon but I was just answering the other posters question.

In the American culture yelling is common in such an incident (there is no proof of physical attack as suggested above). In Thai culture a resulting very bloody ending is common to. Both could have easily happened the other way around too but what did happen is more in line of how I understand the two countries.
