Thai man jailed for stealing three coconuts

Can't help feeling sorry for this guy, yes stealing is not the thing to do but, is there a law for the rich and another for the poor.

The guy steals three coconuts he said he took the coconuts because his pregnant wife told him she wanted to eat fresh coconut.
He was jailed because he was unable to come up with the 50,000 baht compensation demanded by the owner of the plantation where he took them.

The owner of the plantation has been widely condemned in Thai media and by people commenting on the story on social media with people questioning how this lady could possibly ask for such a huge amount of compensation for three measly coconuts worth around 60 Baht.
