Shoot-Out at the OK Corral

Dear Editor, Just one or two questions…. After the recent shooting of the Russian girl in Jomtiem (only one minute’s drive from my house. Scary or what!), we might see Police doing something to clear up the violence that’s infesting our streets.

Am I being cynical, but does it take the shooting of an innocent young Tourist, which will be reported, worldwide, to make to Police take affirmative action? 

Did any of the dignitaries that visited the Russian Lady, pop along the corridor (so to speak) and offer their sympathies to the two Thai’s that had just been shot on Theprasit? 

I doubt it. 

Why has it taken so long for anybody to sit up and notice, that this Resort Town is turning into the Wild Wild East? With gun toting Thai’s (and others), wandering the streets, blazing away at who ever they don’t like. 

This is truly something that I don’t understand. 

WHERE ARE ALL THE GUNS COMING FROM? 

When a gunman is captured, do the police question him, as to where he got the gun? 

If not, why not? 

What do they do to Gun Suppliers? 

A more positive note, is that the Navy might be used to patrol Pattaya. Probably the best idea I have heard come out of a local Politician in years.
