    Has anyone heard about having to patrol your village at night??

    I just found out from my wife that she payed cause I wouldn't have to do it.
    She says that the headman has set up a schedule for each male member of the moo to take his turn on patrol.
    Supposed to have been a school here in Phetchabun prov. that was burned and this afternoon the govt. passed word that the patrols would begin tonite.

    I would insist on getting a gun and then doing the patrol voluntarily.

    Obviously, the farangs job is to go and buy the beer for the lads.

    Didn't you mention your age as being over 70? some where on this board? How many other 70+ year old men are patrolling? Or even Fucking paying?

    Some privileges come with age; I may have to re-read the codes of decency, but I'm pretty sure not having to stay up all night to fight off arsonists is one of em.

    Tell your ol' lady to keep the money and explain the idea of "retired."

    Yes I see many villages starting to do this now and closing the village off at night with gaurds checking people coming in and out. There have been a couple of houses broken into last month in our village and they managed to catch a couple of them which were suppose to be part of a large gang working the area
    . About the only thing we have had stolen was FIL prized cock

    we have guards in my Moo Ban. They go around on push-bikes at night with no lights on them. Fucking pain in the arse as I've nearly totalled one b'stard and I doubt they'll do fuck all if push came to shove.

    Nice salute they have though

    If not, tell 'em to fuck off.

    isn't this a sign that Thailand is becoming less safe and more dangerous ?

    More and more robbery, security was never really an issue here until recently. I can't even find decent security system here, I might have to order from the US directly.

    The Neigboorhood Watch is a good idea. Do it for the fun of it. I wish we had it in the moonban. Instead we have a sleeping security guard. 3 Houses robbed that night.

    In light of the revelation about Blackgang's age, i now wish to retract my earlier statement.

    Tell them to stop taking the piss.

    I would really think that with the new military govt that they would assign a few soldiers to do the protecting of the people..

    I guess not tho,,pobly just think that the uniform means that they are a political arm of the people and that the people are supposed to protect them.

    seem thats the way it is working in the south too.

    Be careful, I hear the Thais have recently caught on to the idea of zog. Only they have found the white guy is easier to spot in the darkness.

    About a month ago the government said they were dispatching troops to the provinces to educate the people in the true ways of democracy.
