It's OK to show cock-fighting on TV's Fight Sport channel though...what's the difference? Are you telling me there's no gambling going on with these televised events? Rubbish.

Yet again, a couple of people have a wager (300 baht?!) is considered a serious crime but the horrible cruelty of forcing animals to brutally injure maim and eventually kill each other is just fine. Buddhism in action.

Unbelieveble! How they dare? Full force of the law has to hit them immediately! This is serious crime!
Same way as they did hit those retired folks who were bridge playing in Pattaya! The world most famous sex city of Thailand.
The law is the law and must hit the non influential immediately.. Right?
( hope some readers understand irony).
Is this workers camp up to thai sanitation standards?
