Discovery Channel adventurer calls for justice for his Thai wife

225 posts in this topic

Thailand used to use death sentence for drug smuggling and during the War on Drugs when Thaksin were running the country more than 2000 people were killed... maybe 15 years in prison isn't really that bad after all.
Try a stunt like that in the Philippines now with Duerte in power and you probably end up in the morgue and if you are famous it's just make it a better warning to others to stay away from that shit...

They should have tested her for drugs in her blood; or did a swab of her hands to cocaine. Then we would know if it was planted or not ? Also search her home.

they certainly searched her home as that's where they found the evidence to convict her on the Wildlife charge and I understand she REQUESTED a blood check and it was refused

Here's something to ponder next time you're landing at Swampy:

 

Results demonstrated that "92% of the bills were positive for cocaine with a mean amount of 28.75+/-139.07 micrograms per bill, a median of 1.37 μg per bill, and a range of 0.01-922.72 μg per bill. Heroin was detected in seven bills in amounts ranging from 0.03 to 168.5 μg per bill: 6-AM and morphine were detected in three bills; methamphetamine and amphetamine in three and one bills, respectively, and PCP was detected in two bills in amounts of 0.78 and 1.87 μg per bill. Codeine was not detected in any of the one-dollar bills analyzed".

 

(Source:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contaminated_currency)

 

Any one of us with a few $100 bills in our pocket could be next.  She had 200-250 micro-grams on her.

 

Wonder how the members of the hang-em-high, they know the rules would feel if it was their loved one?

 

Yep.

=================

In a study reported in Forensic Science International, A.J. Jenkins, at the Office of the Cuyahoga County Coroner (Cleveland, OH), the author reports the analysis of ten randomly collected one-dollar bills from five cities, and tested for cocaine, heroin, 6-acetylmorphine (also called "6-AM"), morphine, codeine, methamphetamine, amphetamine and phencyclidine (PCP). Bills were then immersed in acetonitrile for two hours prior to extraction and subjected to Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. Results demonstrated that "92% of the bills were positive for cocaine with a mean amount of 28.75+/-139.07 micrograms per bill, a median of 1.37 μg per bill, and a range of 0.01-922.72 μg per bill. Heroin was detected in seven bills in amounts ranging from 0.03 to 168.5 μg per bill: 6-AM and morphine were detected in three bills; methamphetamine and amphetamine in three and one bills, respectively, and PCP was detected in two bills in amounts of 0.78 and 1.87 μg per bill. Codeine was not detected in any of the one-dollar bills analyzed". The study confirmed that although paper currency was most often contaminated with cocaine, other drugs of abuse may also be detected in bills.[4]

Google it.

 

She REQUESTED that the cops drug test her, but they refused.

 

They also refused to allow her an attorney, AND did not/could not present any physical evidence in court.

Bangkok Post, gets money from the Discovery Channel; to advertise; so cannot believe this paper.

In most countries she would have walked because of the bungling investigation. The chance of her being framed is greater han 50%. They also never tested her for use. I think this was a mistake by the defence. 

She didn't HAVE any defense.

...it says 250 miligrams in the article I think..

 

Enough for a "toot" I think!

Yeah....Just blindly believe every thing the corrupt cops and judiciary in Thailand say is safer I suppose?

If someone wanted to frame her; you don't do at the airport. You get the cops to stop her car for any fake reason.

If gives them the chance to search her car, purse or any bags in the car. They would then drop 500 g of coke in the car.

Not just enough coke to do a few lines.

Yes that is true, problem is many people can handle drugs quite wel, but a minority can't those are the guys that turn into monsters after alcohol or any other drugs. The majority uses drugs has fun and then return to a normal life. Its all about how often you drink and how you handle it. 

 

Quite a few people can't even do without alcohol (see the posts when there is a dry day). They are just as addicted as some other drug addicts. Its just that some can handle stuff and others can't

 

Unfortunately for those who can the lawmakers have decided to make use criminal even if they don't do any other crimes, they do so to protect the weaker people who can't handle it. (not that its really working.. but its kinda a damm if you do damm if you dont scenario)

You're right.

 

I have known boozers/alcoholics who have died of their addiction, then again, many who have no problem with it.

 

Then again, I have an old mate who has done every drug known to man and is pushing 70. I've also known guys who've died in their 30's from drugs, and one who is nearly 60 and is HIV+, I believe from intrvavenous heroin use.

This forum is still riddled with the sad elderly white male narrow perspective true, but there is hope as I see a lot of positive comments garnering a lot of likes, so it seems there are plenty of us with a slightly more accomodating, realistic and compassionate outlook.

 

Bring the hate!

A lot of us grew up in the 60's-70's.and still have memories and empathy.

That's a ridiculous post.

 

You do it anywhere you can and most importantly you do it where you have your people amidst Thailand's notoriously fractured police force with all its mini-fiefdoms.

 

Let's think where might a wildlife trafficker have most influence. Oh! At the airport, perhaps?

 

Take a look at the ridiculous "trial" at which the defence was deliberately sidelined.

 

All the hallmarks of a set-up.

Think about the Thai culture for a second. They feed about a million soi dogs each day. They won't kill a mosquito if they are in a temple. If the 70 million Thai's people thought she was innocent. They would all be supporting her; not only a few 1000 or so. It is only the Farang , because of the White husband.

I know I went through a few 8-Balls in the 1980's.

 

Haven't touched the stuff since.

 

I'd feel HORRIBLE for 8-10 days after snorting.

 

Same with LSD. Weed just makes me want to sleep....even though I never inhaled :-)

 

I don't mind an occasional Valium just before a trans-Pacific flight though....Just sleep through the 15 hour flight.

 

Now, Viagra....That's a FUN recreational drug.

She looks a lot like my wife too is one reason.

 

They could pass as twin sisters.

The 70 million Thai people are like mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed sh&t.

 

If they say anything then the thugs w/ guns and badges will be banging on their door.

Just a little adventurous boy having a tv-show, that believes his small fame can stand above the law. Just bit on it and suck it up. You wife made a choise that left you with the children.
You just should have known who you married from start.

 

She says she was set up over saving animals that pissed off someone high up.

I tend to believe her, she also says that this is why she got the severe sentence, which I think is over the top at the least.

Agreed. Geez I haven't been reading a lot of comments lately, but damn. Most ThaiVisa posters are still the same. High mighty sitting behind their computer. 

 

It's 0.2grams for personal use. Hardly worth 15 years in prison. A significant fine maybe, community service (which would be good in Thailand) but not jail. 

While other's drive unlicensed or drunk and kill 1 or multiple people in car accidents walk away with no more than a sorry, it's pathetic really. 

 

She's not a dealer, she's not selling. 

Remember the only difference between Alcohol and other 'hard' drugs is one is illegal the other isn't. The all ruin a heap of lives, cause violence, dependency and so on. Except 'weed', you'd be hard pressed to find the same amount of negative social consequences of that plant. (Note I don't do any 'drugs' and rarely drink, but I also believe in the choice for other people to do and deal with, the consequences of their own choices). 

 

Asia and their war on drugs....while running people over in the street is more acceptable. I'll never understand it....

I am not high 'n mighty or holier-than-thou on drugs. (I have tried cannabis myself, although a long time ago).

 

Just pointing out that drugs laws here aren't anything like as lenient as many people would like, or would like to think.

 

I think the "war on drugs" has been comprehensively lost, and the world needs a whole different approach.

 

I don't believe in giving people in the US, UK, Europe etc prison time and a prison record for cannabis offences, that seems to be changing in places.
