THAI POLICE CAUGHT ON CCTV VICIOUSLY BEATING A BURMESE PROSTITUTE – According to the Thai Government there is no prostitution in Thailand, however it is widely known, and accepted, that Thailand is the known as the ‘Whore House of South East Asia’.
In order to circumvent the Thai ‘morality’ laws, bars list prostitutes as waitresses, or guest entertainers and the prostitution industry in Thailand is thriving.
When it comes to the Royal Thai Police, both Thais and foreigners (those that know of their infamy) avoid them at all costs. It is often perceived the Royal Thai Police are nothing less than thieves and thugs with a badge and a permit to carry a gun – either on or off duty.
The footage in the video above is widely known to be typical behaviour of the Thai Police, especially if they are trying to extort a confession or most often money from the person arrested.
Thais, in the mainstream, are not the gentle, smiling and caring Buddhist individuals one often mistakes them for. In fact the Thais are an ignorant and violent race who often resolves their differences with violence.
We all like the think that the United States is rife with violent gun crime, but Thailand is listed as No.3 in the world as having the highest number of violent gun crimes. To put this into perspective, the US has approximately 316 million citizens compared to Thailand with 63 million and yet Thailand’s violent gun crime rate is 6 times higher than the United States.
Burmese are always looked upon, by the Thais, a nothing more than animals. Thailand’s record on Human Rights Abuse, not just for the Burmese, but also for the Royhingya, Cambodians and other neighbouring nations is legendary in its abuse. It was reported just days ago that the Royal Thai Navy was yet again caught murdering Royhingya refugees at sea by shooting them – something the Thais have vehemently denied, regardless to eyewitness reports of the slaughter.
Young Burmese, Viennese and Cambodians are often kidnapped by Thai Police and forced into prostitution; some as young as 5 years of age have been saved by various child care organizations and yet the problem continues to grow due to the lack of humanity a Thai feels for any other race of people.
What is even more disturbing is the Thai Government’s attitude to these type of human rights abuses. In nearly all cases where police officers have been caught trafficking young girls for prostitution the punishment generally consists of simply moving them to a difference province in order to continue their illicit trade – rarely are their reports of any Thai police officers being jailed for their crimes.
The estimates for the number of Burmese girls working in the sex industry in Thailand is vague but some groups put the figure between 20,000 to 30,000, a figure many is underestimated by at least five times.
This human tragedy is fuelled mainly by tourism. According to the Thai Government over 24 million foreign tourists entered Thailand in 2012, a figure that is expected to grow by over 6% in 2013.
It is perceived that a large proportion of all tourism in Thailand is due to the easy in which sex can be obtained and with laws that are openly flouted, this allows the bar owners, many of whom are Thai, to profit from the misery and degradation of those less fortunate or those unable to say no.
The Thais will continue to abuse Human Rights Laws, they will continue to murder innocent refugees and they will continue to force children into prostitution until finally foreign tourists make a stand and refuse to support, with their tourist dollars, a regime that openly advocates the misery and debauchery of others so the Thais can simply profit from it without any thoughts of remorse.
Editor’s Note – Just remember, if you are thinking about taking a holiday in Thailand then you become directly responsible for the continuation of child prostituion and other human rights abuses in Thailand. The only way to stamp out this vile behaviour is to ensure that there is no market for it. The world’s travelers need to abandon Thailand and show them with once voice – change your ways or suffer for your consequences.
I urge you to SHARE this via your Facebook, Twitter and other social network accounts – together we can save these children from the horrors of prostitution and the unrelenting greed of the Thais.
Do you think these Police Officer should be imprisoned or is this just the way things are done in Thailand?
