    Man runs over neighbour after clothesline quarrel

    AYUTTHAYA: A man rammed a car into his neighbour in front of his house on Saturday, killing him instantly, following a quarrel over a clothesline.


    The incident occurred at the Krungsri City housing estate in tambon Khlong Suan Phlu of Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya.


    Police and forensic officials who were called to the scene found the body of the victim, with broken legs and arms and severe bruises, about 50 metres away from his house. Broken plant pots were found scattered over the area.


    The victim was identified as Suphan Yatbanthung, 57, a senior civil engineer with the Department of Rural Roads.


    Video from a closed-circuit camera in the soi showed Suphan cleaning the area and watering plants in front of his house. A man, identified later as Paiboon Sangsarn, 56, who lived next door, walked out of his house and spoke to Suphan before walking toward a car parked opposite his house.

    Mr Paiboon drove the car toward a clothesline that extended into the soi and almost hit it. He then drove away to pick up two boys, after which he suddenly accelerated and ran over Suphan before speeding off with the boys still inside the car.


    A sickening video showing the incident was posted to Facebook and has been widely shared. The Bangkok Post has opted not to show it.


    Police later found the car abandoned at a football filed, about three kilometres away from the scene of the incident.


    Pankamol Rassamee, 44, the wife of the victim, said she was cooking inside the house when she heard a loud crash. She rushed out to check and found her husband lying unconscious on the pavement.


    She said she believed the driver intended to ram the car into her husband.


    Her family had lived in the housing estate for 8 years and had no conflict with anyone, said Ms Pankamol. Her husband was supervising a road project in Chiang Mai and was away from home most of the time, she said.


    An initial police investigation found that Mr Paiboon, a hired motorcycle taxi driver, had quarreled with Suphan over the clothesline that the latter had put up in front of the house.


    The car used in the incident belonged to a neighbour, who had hired Mr Paiboon take the two boys to the football field.


    Police are still looking for the suspect.

    Clothesline across a road has possible dangerous consequences for motorcyclists, so in principle I side with the perpatrator. Although his methods were a bit extreme.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.

    Well yeah.

    Thoughtful of him to pick up two lads just before too, to give them a good view of a homicide.

    The link shows a photo just prior to the killing, not a worry for motorcycles, it seems

    The thing is, psychologically, the vast majority of Thai are still living in their jungle bothies and have not yet acclimatised to the urban environment except in a superficial sense. Once the conflict/confrontation neuroses is triggered, they default to the binary concept mode and either retreat into their own space or kill each other.

    It was the raised eyebrows that pushed him over the edge

    "The man was watering some plants and sprayed the water towards me, and gave me eyebrow raises.

    I couldn't have been angrier, and did it," Mr Paiboon said.

    Truly, the fucking stupidest people on the planet. If he were a real man instead of some curious subset of humanity he should have emerged from his vehicle and arranged a bout of fisticuffs at some mutually convenient date and time but no, he is Thai and therefore a potent accident of utter puerility, crass imbecility and an absurdly over-inflated sense of entitlement concealing an abject sense of insecurity that a fucking butterfly would exploit.

    Not exactly sporting, is it.


    Blindsiding him, hitting him from behind, while he's bent over watering his plants.

    Whilst you're in a car.

    Presumably with the doors locked just in case he isn't dead or mutilated and can somehow fight back.

    Ain't that the truth.

    As their saying goes, when the smiles are gone, the knives aren't far away.


    Remember the American that got a samurai sword in the head over a 50 baht taxi.

    And the family on holiday in Krabi (?) that were allowed on stage to play some music at a restaurant, and the Thai band then killed them...


    and the.... and the... and the....

    The most important thing to remember with Thai, they simply do not think like normal human beings, they are a society apart that has developed in an isolation that melds the three dimensional world with another existence rooted in superstition, stupidity and profound ignorance - in the end, in extremis, they invariably will give themselves up to the savage within.

    Aint this the truth. File it under a perceived "loss of face" and pretty much anything is fair game.

    Police have arrested three pub musicians who reportedly killed an American man and severely injured his son after the two men sang with them but then refused to get off the stage at a bar in Krabi’s Muang district early on Wednesday morning.


    Bobby Carter, 51, was stabbed to death in the stomach while his son, Adam Carter, 27, was badly beaten up. The injured son and the father's body were taken to the Bangkok Hospital Phuket.


    Ratikorn Romin, 27, Sathit Somsa, 40, and Nopanan Yoddecha, 26, were arrested at the bar, the Little Longhorn Saloon. Police also seized a homemade rifle from Mr Sathit, according to Pol Col Boonthavee Tohraksa, deputy superintendent of Krabi police station.

    I should imagine the usual; 40 years imprisonment reduced later on appeal to twenty years and then paroled after eight years. Essentially, if you plead guilty to a crime which was not premeditated and was perpetrated in a fit of anger because you are an emotionally stunted retarded moron with all the development of a 12 year old in a gang of like-minded idiots then the courts will credit an admission of culpability as the most important factor in the judicial process.

    By and large, if the killings are not significant or concern no-one of importance, the killers are generally released after around six to eight years.

    Well, he did admit it. Probably a nice chap really, just had a momentary lapse of reason, a brain fade so to speak. On your way then and dont do it again.

    When one resides in lieland for an extended amount of time and is privy to how they actually conduct themselves one laughs out loud when reading all the tourist bullshit.

    The peaceful Buddhist Thai is simply a myth supported by fukers who come visiting occasionally.

    The fact is that they are the most emotionally unstable people ever put on God's Earth.

    Quiet fookin ridiculous lot actually.

    Essentially, I think it resolves to the curious state of consciousness that is unique to them in that they cannot make a decision on the basis of pure logic eschewing emotion. We often say that we want a thing but our heads overruled our hearts - I'd love an Alfa Romeo but in the end I saw sense - and we accordingly develop rationales that form the bedrock of our cultural mores in which good order and common sense are preserved. The Thai under any sort of pressure simply do not have the cognitive ability to do this and make no distinction between the brain and the heart, it's all the same to them, everything is "something jai".

    Too much emotion, too much heat, and too much pent up frustration arising from the medieval straitjacket that is their need to know one's place and to comply with the hierarchical demands imposed by it, all combine to make them the loonies they can be.

    A nation of children in reality.

    Its good that your entire knowledge of Thailand is confined to Sukumit rd and a few soi's off of it along with Silom road and a few sois off of it as well. Totally clueless and with a ten ton chip on your shoulder..
