My vote, I do not care, but Im happy to see him go

Why on earth, you reckon that having to leave this sad place is an opportunity you'd love to be be given too?

As far as the Doctor kicker goes, It wasn't social media that did him in. It was all his own doing, along with his wife. If he would have immediately apologized, asked for forgiveness, and maybe offered to pay all her "medical expenses" it probably would have never made the news.

medical expenses?

 

for what? a kick that we aren't 100% sure even happened because it hasn't yet been proven to have definitively taken place?

He did exactly that at the police station..

But his wife needed to add a complete diatribe to it and made everybody furious.

Go.  And as he gets on the plane they should have the Doctor there to kick him in the rear as he boards the plane.

 

So, he should be punished by the law, punished in terms of having his life ripped apart, and then the final punishment should be to have the exact same act committed against him by the aggrieved party?

 

A kind of a "if a foreigner commits an act of aggression towards a Thai, the punishment must be three times greater than the crime" thing?

 

Seems a little disproportionate.

Also, he supposedly boasted of connections and the police initially threatened to charge the Thai.  Something like that.

Do you also believe that was the first time the coward ever struck a woman?

 

That doesn't really matter when you're talking about law and punishment.  Otherwise anyone who did anything ever would have to be treated the same.

It is a reminder to all of us how fast things can change.

I guess most of us don't kick people, especially no women.

 

Unfortunately, you can find yourself in trouble even if you don't start it and you end up having to defend yourself.  You need to be prepared to think ahead and get yourself out of any potential argument or confrontation.

Did you see the quotation marks? Probably pointless explaining the meaning of that to you.

 

And the man has admitted to kicking her although he gave a ridiculous explanation that it was by accident because he thought he was kicking a Chinese lady.

 

Kicking a Chinese lady?

 

This is NOT Shanghai!

And, this is not the Swiss Concession in Shanghai, either!

I guess people in Thailand, or at least very few of them, can accept extraterritoriality....these days....maybe....

it's a nice concept, maybe, but hard to find in these post-colonial days....

He who has never commited any sin cast the first stone - famous quote of the Rolling Stones on 2500 AD.
