Daily News reported that two college students from Minburi were found with multiple gunshot wounds in the Sri Nakharin area of Bangkok yesterday evening.

 

Hua Mark police were at the scene studying CCTV and interviewing witnesses to try and get a lead in the case.

 

Unconscious outside the Sinthorn Steak House in Soi Sri Nakharin 3 were two 17 year old youths named only as A and B.

 

A had been shot in both legs and B in both legs and his chest.

 

The type of gun used was not known but a witness at the PT Gas station suggested it was a Thai made gun. 

 

The witness said the men were on a Honda Click getting gas when they were shot at and chased down the soi 200 meters to the steak house. 

 

It was not sure how many assailants there were.

 

Both youths were taken to Samitivej Sri Naharin Hospital and were out of immediate danger after surgery.

 

ASEAN NOW notes it was the second apparent case of inter-college rivalry this week after a pitched battle in Phrapradaeng had residents and rush hour motorists running for cover.

This sort of thing has been going on for ages but the police seem powerless to put an end to it.

Clearly , when the miscreants are caught , which they will be , a stronger punishment is needed to act as a deterrent. For starters , any student involved in this kind of thing should be immediately expelled and black listed from further studies.

 

My wife was on a bus once in Bangkok when this kind of violence erupted around her scaring  the passengers as youths chased through the bus wielding various knifes and machetes.

I can remember many years ago when rival students were fighting with sords and guns outside Central , Changwattana, A young mother was shot and killed while waiting for a bus to go home from work. The RTP never got anyone for that.

Every time there is a shooting that involves college students, it is immediately written off as a rivalry.... no evidence needed.
They adjudicate cases just about as good as the comment section in this forum! 😛

So a witness supposedly can tell that the gun used was a Thai made gun. That's incredibly observant for something that is happening in a flash by them! But he/she couldn't figure out how many people were chasing the guys down the soi? hmmm seems a bit weird to be so unobservant on the more obvious thing.

I wonder what made the witness think it was a Thai-manufactured weapon - Did it jam repeatedly?

This isn't how things work. Deterrents after a crime don't prevent crime because no criminals think they're going to be caught. 

Extended / harsher sentences serve to make the populace feel better but don't actually do anything to stave off these kinds of crimes. 

Access to affordable education, healthcare, housing, and mental health resources are the surest ways to avoid this type of crime by eliminating the desire to commit the crime at its source. 

Though one wonders how or even if that would affect people that just...want to do crimes like this. 

Your thought process is honorable but misguided.  You do not take into consideration the Thai male ego which is inborn.

You're right, I hadn't considering making my solution racist, what a great point.

In case you hadn't noticed they are in a college so they do have access to education.

 

I am sure they have housing and healthcare too.

 

What they need is parents that aren't useless.

Show me an instance in which harsher punishments have actually deterred crime and we'll talk.

A Thai once told me that these disputes often go back generations.   The same technical school the father went to the son now goes to . . . etc.    

It's just like Harry Potter.

Nothing to do with race.  Only with gender.
