This just represents everything that is wrong with the Police here. Inactive Post...kidding right. He should be in jail!

Inactive post simply means one where he cannot collect bribes and shakedown money.

 

It is a <deleted> joke.

Presumably, an 'inactive post' means that he has 'nothing to do all day, and plenty of time to do it in', so no wonder he returned to his criminal ways.

What was that saying by Jack Nicholson in that famous movie oh yes "I'm Back!!!"

Cops do not get prosecuted or jailed for the simple reason they know too much about other bad cops. The only other option is death by cop to silence a caught one, which is also bad for the cop mafia.

I kind of conjur up a scene in my mind where the bad cop sits at a table with a revolver with one bullet in it. He is surrounded by other bad cops pointing their loaded guns at him. I think they drew straws and he lost.

Will this country ever learn.

I don't understand the point of an inactive post when a bad cop or government official commits a serious crime. It's repeatedly obvious its not the solution.

Only sacking and jail time can ever deter these criminals from operating their seedy and greedy lust for money

The Russians then went for some quit time  at the beach to unwind from the kidnapping and robbery only to be fined 100'000 baht for feeding the fish.

You just could not dream this up could you? Allowed to return to the place of his criminal activities?! To carry on as before and enhance his activities and perhaps deal out "justice" to some tour operators.

 

Some high ranking policemen need their heads banged together for allowing this! But, then again, what "interests" did they have in the criminal activities on Koh Phangan? :whistling:

"The case has forced the chief to admit there are some bad apples in his barrel but he claimed that "almost 100% of his force were upstanding honest cops"."

 

Those so called upstanding honest cops are anything but simply because they know who the corrupt ones are but do nothing about them. Upstanding and honest is not about turning a blind eye to corrupt partners. Absolute and total reform is the only way to change the RTP.

Serpico?

Absolutely, TAT should go and witness for themselves the queues at the "Visa on Arrival" counter in Hanoi or HCMC.

 

Plus the visa process is easier (if you need a visa to enter), very easy application on-line normally approved within 24 hours.

Thailand police and authorities :  instead of harassing 50 year old ladies feeding bread to fish, please issue CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS to such scumbags, be they police or not.

Isn´t this what we hear about every week now? How would it be with a real investigation into the force, when the ruling government already know how bad it is?
This is just one of the things that has to show itself in the light. Wouldn´t it be better for the image of Thailand, if this was taken seriously and looked at before a loss of face is created?

Does anybody else see the parallels between how Roman Catholic Church authorities used to deal with complaints by members of the public about instances of paedophilia or sexual abuse involving their priests and Royal Thai Police authorities' usual responses to complaints by members of the general public about illegal activities by their representatives in the field?  

Villainous priests removed to other posts were able to continue on their merry venal ways.  Only the victims of their hypocrisy suffered any consequences.  The Church did not care about its obligations or resposnibilities.

It took a generation or two but recently the Church looked around and realised nobody wanted to become part of their parishes any more; any moral authority,  integrity or community influence the church once enjoyed as a public institution had just about disappeared.  Any trust or faith had virtually evaporated in communities where it counted.

How long before the Police and responsible authorities in Thailand recognise they're on a downward spiral in their own society and will, eventually, have to confront the illegitimacy of their arrogance and deal with harsh consequences they could have easily avoided simply by fulfilling basic community expectations?

Tourism operators on the island said that the gang were well known and several of them had been let out of jail after serving time for drugs offences and attempted murder. They were in league with the rogue cop - named as Suriyan Ranjuan or "Jiap" in extorting tourists in drugs deals.

 

Just how much jail time are these low-lifes being given? I have a feeling it depends how much money you have and how much "pull". The Thai police love to make an example out of some luckless falang caught with a few ecstacy pills or a half ounce of marijuana, by giving them what amounts to a life sentence, but a Mr Big caught with a pick-up load of yaba is out in 6 months.

small crime is punished hard big crime is paid off , what is new?

small laws are enforced big laws ignored

making to much fuzz over small things

and avoiding all big problems, ,Thai style!

talking b******t on tv every day , about changes that will never happen

highest mountain in thailand not "doi Inthanon , but the huge mountain of  b******t spoken on TV

If the force knows the bad apples within & outside of the force then maybe a clean-up operation wouldn't go a miss ??
Hang-em high & show the public you actually mean what you say!!

The locals on Phangan said he was well known for being involved in many cases there.

 

Apparently a heavy criminal known for years.

Specialized in kidnapping, blackmailing, extorting and drug trafficking.

 

Why this scum sit not in prison?

Only because he wear a royal police uniform?

Disgusting.

 

 

Thailand really need to build up a new police force.

Same old story.It goes to the top.Put in inactive post.Dont say we are also involved.We send you to the mainland.People forget about you in a couple of weeks.Then you can come back.I hope the people who comment on here about crime being the same in other countrys.Read this.Crime the same.Justice is not.There is only justice for farangs etc etc.And some of them have done nothing wrong.And he,s given flowers for what.young people dont care about danger.Untill it happens to them.You will hear no more about this case.As normal .It will be coverd up.How many thousands put it down to bad experience.Say nothing and leave.And this is the best way.How about the other way and complain.You can end up in a thai jail for 2 years waiting for a court case.False evidence against you.Us ,older.more wiser .We try to warn you.It did not take long to catch them.Because they knew who has always been doing it.only that its in the western media.they try to show that the culprits have been caught.and now it is all safe to go back.BE WARNED.

Yet more proof that the admin of BIB has absolutely no genuine or serious interest in cleaning up corruption within their ranks. Look at how they (did not) handle this guy.

 

Always inactive posts. Almost never prosecuted and sent to jail. Why???

 

And you'll notice, we almost never hear of what happens to these guys AFTER they're sent to inactive posts. It's not like they stay there forever. Probably in most cases, a brief cooling off period and then back to robbing, stealing, extorting, etc.

 

They probably hold off with prosecution as the bent cop would sue for defamation.

What a slap in the face. He is the absolute embodiment of poor policing going back to visit the scene of his crime. 

Re-enacting his crime?

What the heck?? Can I believe this absurdity?

 

This criminal given a pat on the back asks for holiday time (!!) instead of being hauled off to jail in chains as an example of what the upholders of law and order cannot do!

The chief of police has the bl**dy nerve to state his rotten cops are fine upstanding honest men.

You (pay to ?) become a cop in Thailand to soak the locals and foreigners and enrich yourself. 

 

Every single day we see examples of what a totally lawless country this is. 

Hang on a minute. I thought Thailand was a bastion of virtue and Buddhist values. And all the women are virgins. Thats what the TAT brochure says anyway.

At  face  value  this  story  does indicate  a  very  sad  lapse  in the  system. 

But to my thinking there  is something  missing  in the true  details. Probably  never  to  be  made  known despite the offered story  that  a policeman removed  from  active  duty  was  given leave to  take   " holiday  time"  to return  ( in uniform or  not???) to the location where his  activities leading to  the original cause  to  be made  inactive  whilst being under investigation.

In  any event  this  definately is  a situation  that  deserves   very  very  much  public expctions.
