On Wednesday the National office of Buddhism stripped him of his status as a monk saying that his action was not consistent with Buddhism.

That's very badly incorrect according to the Bangkok Post's reports, as their photograph titled: "Pol L/Cpl Norawich Buadok, dressed in monk's robes, lays a sandalwood flower for Waraluck Supawatjariyakul during her royally-sponsored cremation at Wat Phra Sri Mahathat in Bangkok's Bang Khen district on Wednesday" clearly shows.

Reportedly:

"The NOB did not make an official position on the widely debated issue, but it posted a comment of its spokesman on Tuesday against the ordination of Pol L/Cpl Norawich Buadok, 21.

NOB spokesman Sittha Moonhong told CH7 News that the policeman could not be ordained because he was facing charges and the case was still ongoing, according to the NOB's post on Facebook.

The office had informed senior monks in charge of the religious jurisdiction of Wat Pariwat Ratchasongkram, and the decision to end his monkhood would rest on the temple, the spokesman added.

Phra Khru Sathit Bonyawat, the abbot of Wat Dan who ordained them, told Thai News Agency that he was asked for a favour by his counterpart at Wat Pariwat to ordain the two.

Phra Khru Sathit said he had been informed that Pol L/Cpl Norawich agreed to leave the monkhood on Wednesday to end the issue, but his father would continue being a monk"

Saw photo of the accident site. Long fast straight stretch of  Road … natural race track … bisected  by a pedestrian crossing…with 80 km speed limit…. which should be 50 km ….traffic engineer and boss promoted with that scheme no doubt…….😞 

There must have been numerous prior deaths on that crossing. Recalls that Max Max scene where hero’s wife & daughter are mown down by motorcycle.

in UK such incident is simply unheard off but would perhaps attract a two year ban, retest, large fine and huge insurance premium even if you could get it ! All that for first offense. sentence here? week in jail & silly 2k fine no doubt.

I think you'll find that he'll be doing rather more jail time and getting off rather less lightly than you imagine he would in the UK, even though he's reportedly admitted all the offences and will be pleading guilty so getting his sentence halved.

He hasn't "escaped" anything - he simply became a monk for a few days, with the victim's father's agreement, to earn merit for her.

But they didn't, as is very clear from the photo of him at the funeral, above.

The report here was simply ... well ... 'misinformed'.

It’s comical the police added a charge of speeding to his laundry list of window dressing offenses. Better to stick to the “reckless driving causing death” charge and get on with it

A royal pardon in Thailand is not a forgiveness of crime and or wiping of criminal conviction as seen in some democratic countries. A pardon in Thailand is only a commutation (sentence reduction) and often mistakenly called an amnesty. Royal pardons are awarded to all eligible prisoners to celebrate an event, most frequently every 12th year of a royal birthday. 100% guaranteed there will be a pardon issued on the King’s 72nd birthday, the Queens 48th etc. The DOC has it’s own rules that determine a prisoners eligibility for any sentence reduction based on prisoner behavior class (very bad to excellent), their type of crime and first or repeat offender. For example: a  typical” crime” (eg: murder, rape, theft) on excellent class will receive a 50% reduction in sentence, a drug dealer/user on excellent class a 20% reduction. All eligible prisoners on normal class or above automatically have any court issued fines wiped upon issuance of a royal pardon, regardless of their financial status. So don’t shed a tear for any ex politicians/govt employees with multi million baht fines because they’ll never pay them.

You know  what, I  think forgiveness  is the LAST  thing anyone in prison cares  about, all that  matters to them is  getting  out.

The Thai system is that if someone's charged with an offence then any other charges that come up are added on because sentences are generally consecutive rather than concurrent.

The longest sentence given was to pyramid scheme fraudster Chamoy Thipyaso, jailed for 141,078 years in 1989 as it involved 16,000 people - pardoned and released after eight years.  If the sentences had been concurrent, as they often are in the West, the maximum would have been 20 years.

That's a similar period to most of the West before parole.

Hmmm.. maybe that’s why Thais call a commutation amnesty

That isn't the way the Pardon system works - as a minimum he'd have to have done a third of his sentence, for example, for this sort of crime.

http://www.correct.go.th/eng/royal_pardon.html

Hmmm.. maybe that’s why the Thais call the commutations given to all prisoners an amnesty although the media incorrectly calls them pardons as the King has to sign them.  As Stonker pointed out there are selective Royal Pardons that individual prisoners can apply to the King for as opposed to blanket sentence reductions given to all eligible prisoners.

a doctor who is not carfully on street, should not teat people.

this almost daily, "make, to drive a motorbike or car, bad", will not help you WEF-supports.
( in some years, not be allowed to drive ).

and reduce, better change, stress life-system, change fast-drivers,
includes traffic system, health ( better focusing ), and places for racing.
