Looks like the angry little thuggies still can't accept that they're losers and need to move on. Once again, they resort to their thug ways, because that is all they really understand.  Seems like the police are too cowrdly to take the appropriate action, which is to run these punks into jail or out of Phuket.

Not exactly rocket science as to who will have done this given the location.
