The Thai police as it is. never let go a chance to make themselve more impopulair with the Thai population.  All that food should have distributed among jobless people.

Police salaries are dismal, which  keeps them corrupted. No doubt their  side earnings are way down.

JohnC | 14 January 2022 - 08:56:44

So people with jobs suuporting other people with jobs when there are tens of thousands of Thais with no job, no support and practically no food to survive. Donate food to the needy, not to other corrupt colleagues who are not in hardship.
