How could the police be proactive in a case like this?  Armed escort as she went jogging?

police need to investigate, get it? you know, not sit on their backsides and do nothing, CCTV don't investigate by themselves

Who speculated it was Ukraine motivated, unbelievable. 

It was not wise of this teacher running at night. 

This is true anywhere but applies more in Pattaya, where the dregs of  Thai society congregate. 

The very first poster (a well known one) in this thread.

proactive ??? what is that ?

 

Same worldwide, police take reports and investigate.  They are not there to prevent crime.

Worldwide, many police do patrols. Those can and do prevent and catch crime/criminals. Obviously they don't have the resources to be everywhere at once so focus on areas of high crime.

Thai Rath reported that he admitted to the attack saying that he was stressed and found release in attacking people. 

I find it surprising that a guy who seems to do attacks like that regularly is still alive and not in prison. Does he normally get a slap on the wrist or what is the usual punishment for attacking people?

Pathetic.

 

May someone destress on him one day.

I haven't lived in any of those places.  And not sure if patrolling prevents it, simply postpones it, or simply forces it elsewhere.  The criminal IS going to commit the crime, where ever he/she/it feels it's advantageous to.

You're not sure yet you go on to give a definitive statement. I disagree with you, a lot of crimes are crimes of opportunity and a routine police presence can and does prevent/reduce them. When they setup a police tent on beach road and also did frequent round ups of loiterers there, there was a significant reduction in crime, especially against tourists.

Interesting how they always quickly confess once they get inside the police station.

Confessing in Thailand usually reduces your sentence quite a bit.

But only for SOME crimes.  After a jailbreak & switching cars the cops tracked the villains 500kms.  Yet on Suk there are multiple red light runners & speedsters contributing to the daily death toll with impunity.

Different type of cameras required, normal CCTV is no help

1/2 the jail time if you confess.

Quite claustrophobic inside those black bin-liners allegedly.

If we're talking about crimes against tourist, then yes, I'd agree, and their presence would discourage them from committing the crime there, in tourist areas.  Smaller areas to control & patrol, and only when & where they actually are.

 

Doesn't mean if the criminal needs money, or need to be violent, simply wouldn't go elsewhere to commit the crime.  Obviously they do., and may have to commit more, the get the same amount of booty they would from 1 or 2 tourist.  Means a higher risk of something going wrong, and someone getting hurt.

 

Police simply can't be everywhere all the time.  And TBH, I don't think the taxpayer, inclusive, wants to foot that bill so they can be.  People should accept a lot of that responsibility, their safety, upon themselves and not put themselves in harm's way.   Sometimes easy, sometimes, not so easy, for some.
