Pattaya & Thailand News (11th October 2022) from Fabulous 103fm

The final day of funeral rites for most of the victims in the Nong Bua Lamphu massacre take place today.  Royally sponsored by HM the King and Queen. Three temples will see funerals throughout the day with government officers and even the PM expected to attend. No closure for families though as with the killer having commited suicide, the case is virtually closed save for the WHY.. which is likely t be revelaed at some point.  Nationally the Thai police chief has ordered senior police to remove weapons from any officers or officials who exhibit behavioral problems or are involved in drug use.  A major issue is that Thai police buy their own guns, they are not given as a part of any uniform,  and so can choose whichever weapon they prefer.  It’s pointless talking about the number of firearms out in this country and, like most of Asia, it’s long been known that the majority of weapons are owned without licence anyway and there is no indication that Thailand has any greater number of weapons per capita than anywhere else in the region.

The killer, an ex-policeman, seems to leave behind a conflicting background, as mother had told the press he was a drug user, with behavioural problems. Police have told the media too that he had mental issues and was using illegal drugs and yet.. initial reports tell us that he had NO DRUGS in his system when he killed 37 people. No motive has been established as to his reasoning behind the stabbing and shooting of the 37 which included his own wife and young stepson.

Two CNN reporters who violated the pre-school crime scene in Uthai Sawan district where a former cop shot and stabbed teachers and young pupils last Thursday have been fined.

47 year old Australian Anna Coren, 47, and 34 year old British Daniel Hodge, got some deal yesterday as it was decided that they didn’t INTEND to violate the crime scene, so that means it was an accident AND they had asked, in perfectly clear ENGLISH can we come in, to a handful of local women who were obviously fluent in English. Both were fined 5K baht, and apologised to the Thai people for their mistakes and given assurances that their recording would be permanently deleted. Coran was clearly spotted climbing back over the school fence after filming in the day care centre, pointing out and recording blood stains on the floor and on childrens school bags.  Globally, they have been derided for their lack of decency.

It’s fair to assume that Thai authorities were less than impressed with the duo BUT have enough to deal with, without the self righteous brigade adding to their problems. There’s a chance that the woman will be more than free with her opinions now she has left Thai soil but, let’s hope she doesn’t.

Yesterday, Monday, was the end of the Buddhist Lent, and traditionally the end of the rainy season in Thailand. For the followers of Buddha, a special day, seeing temple celebrations and monks again allowed out from their 3 month retreat.  As to the weather, well, slightly out of sync perhaps, as Pattaya is enduring its wettest week yet. With Monday morning stormy, and then from mid evening through to this morning moderate to heavy rain. Travel advisories are out for the region as flooding was popping up at various points. A survey of the sukhumvit at 6am saw mostly clear but heavy flooding close to Chayapruk 2 heading South and at two points heading North, near Pattaya Tai.   Other routes, too, have flooding and the railway road is one to avoid where possible.

Locally, in the Pattaya region, pumping stations are running at full power as City Hall teams were sent out at down to inspect areas where flooding had occurred.  In some areas homeowners were caught out as they were SLEEPING when the heavy rain first hit. For most though, right now, its groundhog day as recently the region has seen flooding in most areas at different times.

One born every minute, but in the South of Thailand, a scammed family were far from dumb, in fact Dad is a reited doctor YET when they received a phone call from someone claiming to be police and knowing that they had mailed an illegal product or substance, they coughed up 100 Million baht .  At one point told to check on the line app for a page that proved the caller was genuine police, which they weren’t, the family finally went to the real police to report the scam.  No word on what it was that they were willing to pay 100 Million baht to hide, but it wont have been small potatoes.

We’ve had road signs directing traffic the wrong way, some where two different streams were given the right of way but this week’s photo from Pattaya takes the biscuit.  As it gave the option of driving straight ahead… into a brick wall.  Red faced contractors have been called to put it right but for now, it’s one of the funnier sites in the city.
