Is dying of COVID really worse than of poverty and desperation?

I am 90% sure that this tragedy has been provoked by the stress of anti-covid restrictions bringing people on the brink of surviving. People loose their businesses and means to maintain their families, it easily can turn them into desperate psychos.

This is 100% the result of covid restrictions.  Could not agree more with Dmitrii.  But there will be, of course, those thick-skulled creatures who believe covid is the only evil mankind is facing — but those people are idiots.

What rubbish. Blame everything on Covid. These sorts of disputes have been happening pre Covid notoriously  with motorcycle taxis but also were someone as set up a food cart in competition.

Blame it on Covid restrictions and try to portray the shooter as a victim? Over 5 million dead, some people still won’t take their medicine and here some people try to misrepresent a multiple murder as a sign of desperation simply to further their own selfish agenda. Shame on you! No-one in Thailand is starving. The murderer was a stall owner that drove away in his Fortuner. He killed 2 people and wounded 3 more. Shame, shame, shame.

Couldn't agree more!! There's many of those thick skulled creatures on here that have nothing better to do but perpetuate the "perceived" danger of Covid!! People die all the time of illnesses! NOW TIME TO GET ON WITH LIFE and stop bleating about the "woes!!!" You know who you are....TAKE NOTE!! 

Oh well, it seems there's not much difference between you and the gunman ....🤪

life's cheap in Thailand if you have a disagreement here you don't argue, pull your gun out and sort out the problem. They don't think about the consequences. Who remembers the Police Lieutenant in Udon Thani  who calmly walked into Macro's meat section pulled out his gun and shot his pregnant wife killing her and the baby, couldn't give a toss.

Absolutely - how can one fishmonger shooting another in broad daylight in the market possibly get twisted to blame Covid restrictions?

Not necessarily 'cheap', but due to 'jai yen' many Thais don't escalate issues but they have an on-off switch instead - all or nothing.

Not sure why Thai people are considered somehow more volatile at times than other humans.

Get off yer high horses imho

This kind of logic is proof of the twisted reasoning of antivaxers.

Of course. Oriental savages.

These folks require a sound civilising mission that might set 'em straight.

6 million registered guns in Thailand. On average one for every 10 -11 people (though many own multiple weapons so this doesn’t mean one in 10-11 Thais own a gun).

When mental health is pushed to the brink, people do stupid things. 

I sincerely hope we don’t see a repeat.

He must have been very poor to have driven off in a Toyota Fortuner. 

Most people would like to have one, nothing to do with his finances and the effects of covid etc as had been suggested by some.

If he did an argument with another stall holder why did he shoot 5 people ??

The story's becoming clearer - he shot the other fishmonger and those with him.

The average age well over 80 and even the CDC director just came out with the fact that overwhelming majority had 4 or more comordibities. It is not a plague but the restrictions are cruel and very harsh to some businesses.

Note from Moderators

Some members are clearly are not interested in discussing the actual topic and just interested, once again in introducing an alternative agenda beyond any façade of assumption!

There is no mention of Covid-19 or any associated events anywhere in the news report.

Members wishing to change threads into other unrelated stories into other agendas in breach of Forum Guidelines will risk having severe sanctions applied. 

Take this as a "friendly advice" warning, because that is what it is. The Forum does not permit threads being taken down clearly unassociated paths purely to introduce debate on unfounded accusations or to stimulate other agendas.

If you want your opinion heard do not follow the lead of others down the wrong path as has happened on this thread. Future such posts will likely just be deleted without notice.

So is he still on the Run ? can't be that hard to locate him on Coconut Island. Why were the Phuket 6 Tourist's allowed to have there  Mugshots plastered on various media outlets yet a Mugshot of a Thai Murderer has not been published  ?

No. He was arrested last night on the mainland and taken back to Phuket in the small hours.
