Just hours after a top brass policeman visited Pattaya to pledge safety for tourists all the cops seem to have deserted their post, reported TNews.

 

They more than likely moved on to another location to give the same spiel. Again calling them Keystone Kops your just being to kind and generous.

It's best to stay inside during 'The Purge'. 

One of my favorite series 4 now I think. Not out of the realm of possibility for the future.

Make sure you have 10 bahts with you at all times to call 919 to get a busy signal.

Need help from these people? Probably pray to the roadside tree spirits and they would respond even faster!

Party if you like but anyone been to Pattaya, live here, for Songkran know these tourist drink themselves into trouble, of course that is in general. The funding just isn't there nor the system setup for them to to respond in 5 minutes for any emergency don't hold your breath so don't put yourself in a position for something to happen.

In defense of the Royal Thai Police, I reluctantly joined the festivities in Soi Ta-ied in Chalong, Phuket and on-duty police made their way up the road several times.

I wasn't brave enough to aim my weapon at them but others gave them a good wetting and it was received in good spirits with broad smiles.

I was impressed.

Well, the bigwigs had left - it's the tourists fault; they should have gotten assaulted while the big cinema was showing.

Just look at the man in the picture. I would be scared to confront him. Maybe that´s why all the police run away.:shock1:

Once more the only sane response would be to fire the lot of them. Of course that won't happen

Hell will freeze first. Way too many connected people in all levels of RTP, especially upper echelons. Art 44 not powerful enough to take on that massive change. And PM knows every officer that would be affected has his own gun!

Never mind the recent changes in governments, coups, etc.  Several years ago 2005 I think it was I decided to experience Songkran.  It was my 4th trip to Thailand.  Yes it was annoying as during the day you could not walk to the mall, take a baht bus without getting wet, etc.  So after a few days the novelty wore off.  But what I observed was the pent up frustration among the Thais and what I perceived as resentment as the Thais did not just throw water, but literally lashed out at the foreigners.  Luckily it was usually with water, but in their eyes, I saw more hatred.

Sorry for your bad experience in the past. I did not feel that at all today, and although I saw only a few foreigners, I felt I was welcomed as a guest, never hated.  Not one negative instance today, just lots of good fun. Saw some police occasionally, but the crowd was exceptionally well behaved. It was a wonderful family event, with children, young, and old taking part. Just get out there and join in and have a good time!

 

Today's water festivities were in Naklua, and I rode my scooter this afternoon through the full length of it from the dolphin roundabout to the exit on Sukhumvit.  This is a time when you can really interact with all the people. Embrace it!

Pretty much a carbon copy of a Samui full moon party.  Expectation of lots of drunk tourists and drunk Thais together.  Good opportunity for friction of some sort.  Lots of talk about security.  In actuality, ZIP police presence in evidence!!!!!  Must have been away on a brown envelope treasure hunt or something equally important to not man the dedicated security tent.

You are on your own in Pattaya as the cops prefer the air-con down at the station. To force them to walk the beat would be considered cruel and unusual punishment.  

Inhumane.....😎

I did one Songkran in Pattaya years ago and that was wild enugh, I have never wanted to be there for Songkran again.

There was rockets being shot off from the back of pickups that were going down beach street, as well as some on the beach.  People were chucking wather everywhere and most were drunk.  I was soaked and felt quite expoed all the time I was there.

I felt lucky to have survived 2 days and one night of the festival, and got away to Bangkok after those two days.  It was a lot

more peaceful in the city.

Geezer

nice place to have a holiday if your a villain and a nice place to live if your on the run or a pervert, otherwise bring your own body-bag and make sure you say goodbye before living home as you will not see home again in one piece

No mention of why the farangs were set upon, wouldn't have anything to do with alcohol and ego's would it, just asking ?
