Unpaid brokerage fee believed to be behind Korat mass shooting

An unsettled brokerage fee from real estate deal is believed to be the motive behind Sgt. Maj Jakrapanth Thomma’s shooting rampage, according to a Thai PBS investigation.

 

Jakrapanth doubled as a broker for Mrs. Anong Mitchan, a real estate developer and mother-in-law of his commander, Colonel Ananrote Krasae. The investigation found that Jakrapanth had persuaded his army colleagues to buy houses or land from Mrs. Anong and earned substantial brokerage fees from her. He had received all but the last payment, said to be about 50,000 baht, for which he had repeatedly asked her.

 

A meeting was then arranged at Mrs. Anong’s house, in Muang district of Nakhon Ratchasima, for Saturday, with Col. Ananrote acting as a mediator.  However, when the talks broke down, Jakrapanth drew his pistol and killed both Mrs. Anong and his commander.  An army private at the house was also injured.

"face" had nothing to do with it. It was over 50,000 baht. People get killed for much less than that.

Losing face means losing credibility or respect. If someone stiffs him for 50k its a loss of face, in his mind anyway. "Losing face" is a very big deal in Thai culture.

It's loss of expected money. He had asked for it repeatedly. I wonder why she wouldn't pay him. It seems they had done business successfully before.

Thank goodness I'm not inclined to murder someone when a business deal goes south. I'd have many notches on my belt by now.

I'm sure same can be said for many members on this forum.

propably he saw too many times the movie: "when it's time to shoot , shoot. don't talk".

and emulating the last movie he watched? - Rambo Last Blood

 maybe this from where some reports had him lugging an M60 (like the movie)

Yet other reports a lowly 5.56 mm HK33

Yes, but a M60 does not make logical sense for a weapon.... hugely impractical... much better options.   (not to mention the ammo itself is bulky and heavy) ... not meant for a single person to use as a hand held weapon.

The international media and social media do share a part of responsability in massively reporting live the madness of such tragic incidents worldwide. It gives ideal to all the madmen around to world....

That's why you'll never be a Thai politician, or a general in Thai Police or Army.

He had both. Discarded the M60 fairly early on. There was a photo of it on the ground outside while he was in the mall.

It’s all about someone getting stiffed in money owed to him...nothing about face here....more like injustice

 

but the private getting shot and then beyond needs more explaining...mom said he had a bad temper..

 

He just lost it combined with his military training and access to weapons lead to a predictable outcome...

"Loss of face" again!

Quite often the case in FarangLand where both extreme reactions to loss of face and mass shootings are common, but you're making a stretch in this case in order to bolster your prejudices. More like a loss of money.
