Thailand Prison Inmates Fight Foreigners For Reduced Sentences

The folks at Coconuts TV are always finding something strange in Southeast Asia to share with their YouTube audience and their most recent video is no exception. Apparently, if you ever find yourself in a Thai prison with at least a ten year sentence, you can get months or even years shaved off for fighting. Not random fights in the rec yard, but organized Muay Thai bouts with tourist opponents. It may seem weird to encourage and even reward fighting, but the inmates who spend their time training for a match don’t have time to engage in drug and gang activity. How come there hasn’t been a Van Damme movie about this yet?
