Well it certainly wouldn't have been reported by a senior Thai police officer.

As with nearly everything in Thailand, it's the details that matter.  And like with most things, it's the comically inept Thai response that makes a bad thing worse.

 

The CNN story has made quite a bit of national attention on the subject and portrays Thailand as it should be.  Instead of making a half-hearted effort to deal with the bad publicity, the malevolent halfwits running the country attack the source of the information.  CNN, in true form, played into their hands by purposefully leaving out how their main 'protagonist' had been arrested and deported for an attempted kidnapping from Thailand.  The Bangkok Post (or Thai Pravda) reports that this person "sold" the story to CNN....demonstrating that one of the largest media outlets in Thailand doesn't understand that reputable news agencies don't pay for these types of stories.

 

Another forum member in a previous thread about this subject posted a clip of the hotel's closed circuit video of the Taiwanese man being roughed up by the Americans and pulled dragging (and presumably screaming) from the lobby.  The Thai staff are clearly alarmed...and there's one other fine detail.  A Thai cop sitting next to the Taiwanese man, taking it all in and doing nothing.  Then after a filmed SWAT team raid of a hotel room....all are deported from Thailand.

 

Oops....looks like a few 'other' people had their hands in that cookie jar.  Standby for a new 'scheme' to 'lure' medical business to Thailand for a BOI 'incentive'.  

 

Teenage children could manage a better response....

Leaving aside who was behind this scam and their nationality, the practicalities of recycling used medical gloves doesn’t add up.

Presumably when produced they are manufactured and packed by machine.

Any I have ever seen used in hospitals are discarded into bins.

Has somehow been scouring hospitals to recover them?

Are they then cleaned, returned to their original shape and re packed?

Doesnt make economical sense to me even in low cost Thailand.

A disturbing image is that of a glove formerly being used to check a prostate, later putting those cotton wool cylinders into your mouth for some dental work!
