Pattaya's authorities have had enough of foreigners and Thais flouting the Covid-19 regulations. 

 

Yesterday a contingent led by Lt-Col Somboon Wuasamanmaitri of the tourist police went to the beaches around 5pm, said Ban Muang. 

 

In most places people were obeying the rules about staying off the beach and not congregating. 

 

Not in Jomtien.

Eleven foreigners and twelve Thais were rounded up and taken into custody. 

 

They were exercising, sitting around on mats and swimming without a care in the world.

One foreigner didn't go quietly, said the media. He refused to leave the beach and said that he was connected to the local mafia.

 

He was soon found to be in possession of a knife. 

 

Channel 7 national TV had reported that Pattaya's mayor Sontaya Khunpluem had warned tourists they would be fined if they flouted the beach and congregating bans. 

 

The "tessakit" page on Facebook showed pictures of some of the arrests and also said: You were warned!

Good job. I see it with my own eyes here in Pattaya every day. Some people don't care about restrictions and laws and such people need attitude adjustments.

They write in the article 

 

"Eleven foreigners and twelve Thais were rounded up and taken into custody.

Complete overkill. People and authorities have completely lost the plot and all sense of reality this last couple of months.

 

Sure Covid 19 is a dangerous bug to catch for some. But the risk should be weighted against other necessities for the modern world.

 

This virus is NOT ebola, the virus by itself doesn't kill by itself ftom what has been reported.

 

By the authorities becoming so heavy handed they are just creating more problems. 

 

Quite a few on the threads need to get a dose of reality too. Some hilariously OTT posts of late regarding covid19.

But again, Thais not mentioned in the subject heading.

 

Think again.

There are restrictions and laws and on top of it big warning signs at the beaches here in Pattaya. It is up to you if you ignore all this. But please don't complain about consequences afterwards. This would be extremely naive. But obviously there are plenty of people like this.

It's about containing the potential spread and we all have to do our part for what it's worth, laws are laws, yes some are over the top, but without them you will have anarchy.

They could have avoided this kind of hostility if the Guvnor had allowed the beaches to stay open and just banned gatherings of more than two people (plus their kids), with the same penalties as now. It would be much less work for the cops to simply break up the few groups of people along the beach than it has been to clean everyone off them completely. And to what end? Thais and farangs end up thinking the police are on a power mad fascist trip, or fishing for tea money. All it needed was for the Guvnor to sit and think calmly for five minutes instead of adopting the usual Thai "I can therefore I will" approach to the use of power.

The song "Dream On" comes to mind after reading your post.  You can complain all you want, but a Decree and rules with regulations have been made.  Warnings have been given on a daily basis, but then some people want to behave like they know what is best for the rest of the world do what they want.  I get it, I want to do things that I can not do now, but I do not flout the regulations put forth, nor do I try to take the government to task for what I see as a perceived disenfranchising of people and rights.  Maybe you can do it for us, since you seem to understand epidemiology....

Freedom means nothing to the authorities of this country. They have just too much power here. I personally expect this country will not be free for a long time even after the covid is gone just because they won't be interested to give back the freedom they have already taken.

So, I can't exercise either on the beach nor on beach road? Or just can't do it in a group?

Simply read the big signs at the beach area. It is that simple to find out what is allowed and what not.

Well seeing how people are arrested and probably thrown to jail makes me afraid even going there.

I walk every morning as do many on Jomtien Beach Road. Wear your mask walk and don't sit in a group, easy to understand. Whether people agree with it or not, that's the present law.

i'm with the ILLUMINATI.....the next step is sheep control

 

If you violate new laws regarding (insert whatever, now COVID):

 

1.  all property seized, fines up to 10000000

2.  prison, bail at 5 million

3.  all houses abroad seized, all relatives fined

4.  passport taken for 10-years

5.  quarantined for a year or 10 million

 

it's funny how we all must be like a scared mouse.  we have no choice!!

 

Luckily the weather is nice in Thailand, so no worries.  I'm talking about your home country.  

 

"wow, mike lost his house and car and money....why mommy?"

 

"oh, he went outside at 5 p.m."

 

"OMG, bad man..... bad."

They tried it at the beginning with the social distancing rule alone. But I could see it myself that this didn't work. I can understand that they were disappointed and simply blocked the beach to get rid of non-conforming people. But some still didn't get the message. They are to blame and not the authorities.

That's because you dreamed it.  I see girls everywhere giving me admiring and lustful glances, but that's a dream too.
