Thai Police Caught in the Act

THAI POLICE CAUGHT IN THE ACT – It’s another typical day in Thailand where the Royal Thai Police are out on the streets, visiting business owner, but unfortunately not with the intention of policing the community but rather in collecting their protection money.

The fact is that the Thai Police are not police in any real terms a foreigner would understand – these are just thugs in a uniform and they don’t come any more corrupt or murderous than a Thai Police Officer.

It’s another typical day in Thailand where the Royal Thai Police are out on the streets, visiting business owner, but unfortunately not with the intention of policing the community but rather in collecting their protection money.

Corruption plagues the Royal Thai Police

On this particular day, at the two officers walked into the shop and demanded their money, there happened to be a television journalist at the scene.  According to the reports the owners of the shop politely asked the tow policeman to come back later, as it was not a good time to talk.

The police officers however were having none of it and insisted the protect payment was paid as they hand other businesses to go and see and would not have time to return later that day.

It was at this point that Banjong Cheewamongkonkarn of the Nation TV News Station intervened and declared himself as a journalist.  The following conversation went a little like this:

Banjong:  Excuse me officers but this is Chinese New Year, which is traditionally a time for giving and not taking.

Police Officer: That’s not our concern, we need paying.

Banjong: But your boss, the Metropolitan Police Commission had recently given specific orders prohibiting any police officer from accepting money throughout the Chinese New Year period.

Police Office: You are joking, my boss is the one that sends us out to collect money and the money is in fact his money.  We only get a very small percentage.

After the brief conversation both police officers, obviously not happy, left empty handed and the entire incident was caught on the shops CCTV.

Now you might be thinking this was all in all a good thing for Banjong to do.  After all someone has to make a stand against corruption.  However this simple truth is that this is Thailand where everyone from the bottom to the very top is corrupt.

This confrontation actually leaves both the shop owner and Banjong in a very precarious position as both could well end up losing their lives – it is nothing unusual here for a police officer to undertake a contract killing and being embarrassed in public is not something they are going to take likely.

On a final note is that these two officers will have to explain why they are short of collecting their corrupt payments to their boss, who is certainly not going to be happy if he knows, or more is the point when it finds out, these two implicated him in a crime.

For those of you who are wondering about the connection to Chinese New Year and why they celebrate it in Thailand… this is down to the fact that the Chinese actually took over Thailand over 400 years ago and even today the indigenous Thai is blissfully unaware of the fact.  Hence why Chinese New Year is celebrated by many so call Chinese/Thais.

Now you might be pretty shocked or surprised at all this but you shouldn’t be.  Corruption here in Thailand is simply a way of life, along with murder, rape and most other crimes.  The fact that Thailand is ranked 3rd in the world for Gun related violent crime should give you an idea just how dangerous Thailand is as a destination.
