Please let us know if the Shinawatras are on the list of influential people. They should be on that list. They clearly use their influence all the time

For good or bad?😳

My unsolicited piece of advice would be to change the entire police force; it is one of the most cancerous agencies this country has - shortly after the armed forces 😉

But change with who or what?

Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin has directed the Provincial Police Region 8 Commander in Phuket Province to intensify efforts in apprehending individuals with bad influence who continuously violate the law.

Is that right across the board or just foreigners?

I think you misread the article, as I did at first.

 

he was not talking about apprehending “influential people” in the sense of hiso thai people. He is talking about, well, criminals in the conventional sense. Although he termed it as people of bad influence who habitually offend. He goes on to list a number of crimes but focuses on drug crime.

 

bad headline really. The article, as far as I can see, is simply talking about crime in general

Somehow it seems you think those are completely different groups of people...

At last an article whose title has nothing whatsoever to do with the content! 

 

Usually there would be some connection between the title and the content so you would strain to ascertain what that connection was. No such worry here.

Only those influential figures from the others. Our own influential figures are obviously all good guys. 😉 

Keep in mind that they held an accounting a few months back to identify people of questionable influence and question them. If memory serves me correctly of the 690+ people of bad influence almost 500 stated that they had already changed their ways, whatever that means. The remainder never committed to change nor did anything ever come of it.

I would love to see their definition of "questionable influence". 

We could start with legal and illegal activities. And only because they are not arrested doesn't mean they didn't do anything illegal.

And somehow, I would be surprised if anybody who helped Thaksin is on the list of influential people, even if they are obviously influential.

are the fools that do it

 

And the fools who married the gambler or were born to them. Then there are the friends and family members who bailed out the gambler and were never repaid, the people who had things stolen and pawned for gambling money, or the employer who had funds embezzled to cover gambling debts.  

 

As flawless and magnificent as you so obviously are, we don't exist in a vacuum.  The odds of everyone around you also being perfect are very slim. Their flaws cause ripples across the pond.

Well thanks I know I am, I don't surround myself in gamblers, had a GF who bailed her mother out using my money and I dumped her the same day.

No point in bailing out gamblers, they are addicts and will just continue.

Should he also instruct the Police to crack down on influential figures throughout the nation... 

 

Perhaps start with property tycoons who use their influence and power in planning to free up over 900 acres (3.6km2) of prime river front real estate.....  :whistling:
