Stop Attacking Tourists Or Else

Pattaya Police: Stop Attacking Tourists Or Else. Or Else What?

Pattaya police were out in force on Tuesday night in and around Walking Street and the Sin City boys in brown had a message for all – “Stop Attacking Tourists”.

Leading the charge was Pattaya police chief Pol. Col. Sukthat Pumpunmuang together with the chief of the Chonburi police Pol. Maj. Gen. Amphon Buarapporn and their message to entertainment venues was clear – end the attacks or face five year closures.

Armed with an entourage of cops in fancy dress outfits, lots of placards and a bunch of lovely leaflets the police hit the streets to share their message with all.

The funny thing is, this was the exact same threat made at a meeting about crimes against tourists held back in January and yet here we are four months down the line and it’s the same old song, just a different day.

Unfortunately, many of the sleaze bars are owned by individual police themselves and as such it is unlikely they will close down their money making establishments.  Only those bars owned by the mafia and other private owners will be subject to any closures.  The kicker here is that if they continue to pay the police protection money they also will not be subject to closure.  Of course we will hear in the future of an odd closure but that will only come about if the owner of the bar refuses to pay.  This country is so full of liars and corruption.  The police think they are clever by announcing something that they will never do.  There are much safer areas in the world for tourism. The Army needs to seriously crack down on the police to solve the problem.
