Police were called after a passenger on a public Bangkok bus blew his nose and spit in a tissue. Thai media reports that the bus driver ordered the man to get off the bus in Bangkok’s Petchkasem area and that the passenger eventually agreed after the police were called.

The man had removed his mask and was wiping and blowing his nose with a tissue. Someone video recorded the man and posted it on Facebook saying it was “terrible behavior.” Thai media reports that many passengers were worried about the spread of Covid-19 after the recent spike in cases.

    A pity he wasn’t arrested, but having his face plastered over the news may encourage others not to follow his example.

    Disgusting behaviour at this present time.
    He still was not going to leave even when the cop arrived.
    A gentle tap on the knee with a truncheon tends to alter these scoundrel’s antics.
    Or as in the West, a full power blast with a taser which make their hair spike out from their head.
    However I would favour a three second application of a pepper spray, which would turn them blue in the face, and leave them coughing and choking for an hour.
    What other methods would members on the forum recommend to punish a person for coughing on a bus?

      Personally I’d rather see you get the taser and pepper spray treatment than somebody with a cold. We have a lot more to fear from glib authoritarians than people with the sniffles.

        Yes well us authoritarians have to suffer remarks from persons that have no sense of humour.
        Alas it is one of the the penalties of being an authoritarian.

          I’m sorry if you were being sarcastic but it flew over my head. It’s hard to do satire when the suggestion could easily be completely genuine.

            Yes I did not really believe a man coughing on a bus deserved to be tasered.
            .

    Seems like paranoia has really set in, NEEDING to blow your nose or sneeze isn’t a guarantee of covid 19 especially in a country with less than 1 in a 100,000 people are actually infected. On reflection I think he would have been wise to do it a bit more discreetly though.

    Blew his nose and spat in a tissue, not on the floor i may add. Then everyone goes crazy. Herd hysteria at its worst. Blowingz. Spitting is not a major Covid sign, its coughing,

      The whole thing is a bunch of BS. I’ve been to China and heard the chorus of hacking and spitting all day long, and had to dodge as they chuck their crap out in the street, and it’s grim, and disgusting, but nothing justifies turning the world into a police state.

    That proofs the fact that Land of Scam is inhabited by paranoid morons. This includes the majority of the expat community as well.

    Just remembering a guy going for a swim with a face mask at Nai Harn beach some days ago when around 20 people where spread out at the whole beach.

A man suspected of selling the ketamine-based drug cocktail, which is said to be tied to at least 10 deaths in Bangkok, was shot and killed in a shootout with police in Nakhon Pathom, just west of the capital. The narcotic cocktail, known as “K powdered milk,” is ketamine laced with methamphetamine, heroin and the anti-anxiety medication diazepam, all crushed up together resembling powdered milk.

Police tracked down 41 year old Wasan Khiaohom yesterday. He was in a pickup truck parked next to another car on a roadside in Nakhon Pathom’s Mueang district. As officers moved in to investigate, Wasan, who also went by the name Ple Kampangsaen, got out of a pickup and pulled out a gun, firing shots at the officers. Police fired back, shooting him. Wasan tried to flee the area, but collapsed and died in a wooded area by the road.

Police say they searched Wasan’s pockets and found a small bag of “K powdered milk” and 40 ecstasy pills. Police also arrested 2 alleged accomplices who were driving the car and pickup truck.

Police have been cracking down on illicit drugs after 10 people died reportedly after taking the narcotic drug cocktail while others were hospitalised. From January 13 to 18, police arrested 592 people in the drug crackdown. In a series of busts, police say they seized a total of 8,644,825 baht worth of drugs including methamphetamine pills, crystal methamphetamine, cannabis, ketamine, kratom leaves, kratom drink and ecstasy pills.

Woman sentenced to 43 years in prison for violating lèse majesté law

The Bangkok Criminal Court sentenced a former public official to more than 4 decades in prison for violating the country’s strict lèse majesté law on insulting or defaming the Thai Monarchy.

The woman, a former Revenue Department official known as Anchan, was found guilty on 29 counts of violating Section 112 of the Criminal Code, known as the lèse majesté law, as well as the Computer Crime Act. She was sentenced to 43 years and 6 months in prison.

Anchan had posted audio clips on Facebook and YouTube of a man making comments considered critical of the Thai Monarchy. The man has been arrested, but officials haven’t released any other details.

The ruling comes during an ongoing pro-democracy movement raising subjects that are considered taboo in Thai society. In recent months, dozens of protesters have been charged with violating the lèse majesté law. A senior researcher from the Human Rights Watch as the recent sentence sends a “spine-chilling” message.

“Today’s court verdict is shocking and sends a spine-chilling signal that not only criticisms of the monarchy won’t be tolerated, but they will also be severely punished.”

Section 112 of the Criminal Code:

Those who defame, insult or threaten the King, the Queen, the Heir-apparent or the Regent shall be punished by a jail term of between three to 15 years.
