Good on the chap. But, please, do not put it down to "Thainess". He is simply a decent person with a desire to help others. There is absolutely no exclusivity to this based on nationality.

...almost a case of unThainess. Not sure "Thainess" is an apt description. The article suggests this is common place in Thailand but probably less common than a lot of other countries. Good on the cop if the article is accurate. A good worldy citizen worthy of praise. 

It is mai tamada.

And he has a nice kindly, friendly looking face to go with it. Not like some of those evil looking mongrel senior officers you see so often in the PR photo shots.

So questionable about the truth of this.......... We never know..............

I say:-------- not very likely...................... But................. Let's imagine for a moment that it is all truth and not fiction..... THEN I say that this is THE MAN to be elected Thailand's NEXT Prime Minister........... If the present Army General ever permits a 'Democratic Election'...................

LOL (in this case------ LOTS OF LUCK).............

My first thought was that police officers must be earning a bit more than I thought, if this good samaritan can afford to give away 50000 baht and not be concerned about money.

What about all that tea money they collect? Anyway, how is a policeman allowed to be so overweight as he looks in that photo?

Hum, well. I am a bit sceptical. Since most Thais have this inbuilt survival instinct to make money when an opportunity arises... I mean i understand that in country where there is no social welfare system should you fall on hard times. Good on him if its true. But cops dont get much salary wise and to make ends meet they need to do something to supplement their income...

If he is a genuine caring person I Applaud him. The wolves in Thai society will

take advantage of him. Look out for the Orange robe mob he will be swamped

with Motorcys and trucks, with bold tyres and no fuel.

"One sign says he will change rear lights that are malfunctioning for "the sake of life".
Thais don't seem too worried about having no rear lights,in the dark,dark clothes,

for the sake of 20-30 Baht for a bulb,they are crazy,and if you ran into one ,who's

fault do you think it would be.

I'm afraid this appears to me to be not as positive a story as it is meant to be.

   He has laid out about 50,000 Bt. so far in being a good samartian. I assume most of the people he has helped would be Thai and it does not speak too well of them.....have they not shown their grattitude with more than a "thank you".

   I know for sure if it were me on the receiving end of having been helped out in those awful circumstances, .......after rising up from kissing his feet, I would insist on him accepting componsation......as much as I could afford.

For sure mate, a good deed deserves another I would definitely contribute to his little shop and it would be nice if other people did the same that he helped.

I reckon he's doing the right thing, so don't get me wrong, however, further investigation may find that's its a 'marketing' ploy to get people back to his workshop to have some 'paid' work done for more serious problems with their vehicles ? There's always a motive to these nice gestures in life, no matter what race or breed you are, rich or poor !
