Eros on line and public security : the thai police lacks hand tools

Holly Molly ! I’ve managed to put two pictures of a hot chick on this blog ! I thought I’d never make it.


Now I can quietly wait for the traffic to grow. Exponentially of course. It’s more interesting than charts about oil consumption or trade deficit, right ?

Allez, back to topic and let’s hit one more time the thai police (it’s sunday, God’s day, even though it’s really too easy).

So the Finest have found another matter of public security to care of, and with their high sense of duty, they went on “fifth gear” mode to tackle the “problem” (because there is a problem, a big one).

So this time, what’s the fuss about ?

A girl… hum… 19 years old… hum… Chinese living in Beijing… hum… her skin is soooooo white… hum… who wants to raise money, apparently, to save the earth quake victims… by uploading wink-wink pictures on her blog… hum… She’s now a celebrity in China. Fair enough. She’ll get a good husband.

But… what’s the point with the Royal Thai Police ? !

Public security, I told you ! And possibly, national security.

Police are monitoring a Chinese website on which a girl posts her nude pictures to raise funds for Sichuan earthquake victims. Pol Maj-Gen Wisut Wanichbutr, commander of the Economic and Technology-related Crime Suppression Division (ETCSD), said 19-year-old Xiao Yun’s website is creating a buzz in the cyber community, but it might be illegal.

ETCSD inspector Pol Lt-Col Panya Cha-emthes said the distribution or display of nude pictures is subject to prosecution under the computer crime law passed this year.

Webmasters of such sites are liable for a jail term of up to five years and/or a fine of up to 100,000 baht.

Those who duplicate the pictures and post them online will also be punished.

Ms Xiao caused a media sensation in her country after she displayed hundreds of pictures showing herself in lingerie and in the nude on the website to raise cash for the victims of the May 12 earthquake in Sichuan province. (Bangkok Post)

Is it clear ? If you visit this website or if you copy and send the pictures to your friends by e-mail, you’ll be punished. πŸ˜‰

Believe me, the Royal Thai Police knows very well how to answer the “call of duty” when it’s necessary (or could it be “call of nature” ?)

    You seem to have a sense for especially great posts lately! Another ingenious find. Not to imagine what could happen if an earthquake hits places closer to home here.

    No, no. Those charts are WAYYYYY more interesting, with all the curves and smooth lines and sparkling eyes…

    On more business note… may be that chinese girl is impeding on Thai way of life. Only Thai girls are authorize to find date and marry farang online. She is fixing the market and must be sue with our all-mighty-ICT-law.

    This story came out just as the furor over a similar incident, alot closer to home here in Pattaya, broke last week.

    Seems some police came into a bar with printouts of a girl posing nude and the cops were tracking her down, and then trying to get the farang photographer.

    Maybe have a look and give a mention?

    Fall… don’t challenge me ! I’ve got a really sexy chart for oil imports (updated with april figures), on the schedule for tomorrow ! Seriously. Watch out !

    We know that Thailand is a marvel when it comes to bigotry and weirdness… But I’ve to say that I like very much this news.

    I mean I can imagine the police Major-General… during a press conference… talking shit like that but very seriously : “Yes, sure, this website might be illegal… we’re running a deep, very deep investigation. All my teams are red hot, I mean on the front… Committed to serve and protect, okay khrap, khrap, khrap ? “

    And no one in the room to tell the fatty : “do you seriously believe that the world gives a rat shit about what you’re thinking ?”

    It’s like to be in high school again ! It’s just too funny.

    ->pattayaghost. Yes I’ve read your paper.

    I’m afraid that this story in Pattaya is actually and unfortunatly much more serious.

    I think about “new technologies” + “hard times” = this.

    I mean before, the Finest were good enough to use a PlayStation during working hours… but that was probably all.

    Now, the boys start to get real about computers and Internet.

    Plus… as we know… times are difficult… gasoline prices went to the roof (and counting)… I mean it costs a lot to fill in the tank of the BMW bought last year for the mistress, right ? πŸ˜‰

    So… the “fees” must go up, accordingly, following exactly the evolution of CPI (Consumer Price Index).

    Porn and Internet are just 2 new… fees machines.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
