The violence erupted at the Camp Beer pub in tambon Bo Phut around 2am, said Lt Ratthakarn Chanwong, a duty officer at Bo Phut police station.

The shooting left seven men wounded – three policemen from Bo Phut station and four pub staff. All were rushed to hospitals, where two were later pronounced dead. They were Lt Corp Jaerasak Sroisangvarn and Kraisorn Mingsakul, a guard at the pub.

The other five with bullet wounds were identified as Lt Corp Sitthisak Ngamkhom, Lt Corp Kritsana Boonyin, pub guard Voravit Yimyong, pub manager Thepthinnakorn Thongphet and pub waiter Veerapong Jarusenee.

Police investigators reported that seven policemen attached to Bo Phut Police Station were having a night out at the pub.

While dancing they became involved in a brawl with a group of young men. Security guards intervened and asked them to leave.

After emerging from the bar, Lt Corp Jaraesak pulled out a pistol. The pub manager tried to stop him and then chaos then erupted.

Another policeman, identified later as Lt Corp Narongsak Khamjai, fired shots from his 9mm pistol into the crowd gathering in front of the pub. The bullets hit three fellow policemen and four pub staff, including the manager. After the shooting he drove off in his car.

Police sent to the scene found bloodstains and six spent cartridges in the parking lot of the pub.

CCTV footage which showed Lt Corp Narongsak opening fire at the crowd. He was later caught and arrested on charges of murder, attempted murder and carrying a weapon in a public area.

Kurt...your story writing is just that...a story. What has the shooting by a few rouge cops got to do with coruption?...nothing. They could have been anyone. 

Kurt | 24 September 2016 - 10:24:06

Swerv: Yes!  It has to do with the continuing story of a dysfunctional situation of the RTP on Phuket.
Corruption, as you could read in my story writing. 
This shooting drama. And the shooting drama outside a bar at Patak road Chalong ( drunk police officer killed a working bar waitress at 4 AM).
And there is much more what we can read on and of. Right?

Your writing:.."Who cares what ha...

Kurt: It is very easy for people to get confused with your writing, i sometimes get a headache trying to decipher your child like ramblings. So many times you go off on a tangent with unconnected issues. Who cares what happened to a bar in Rawai, it\'s nothing to do with this story.

Jome | 24 September 2016 - 01:00:28

nobody with a little bit of brain can understand this writing.........

Kurt | 23 September 2016 - 18:06:05

stegee, don't take that part literally, see it figuratively. Ok?
Sorry, I did confused you.  :-)
I thought you would understand the writing.

stegee | 23 September 2016 - 16:30:39

@kurt you seem a little confused... 
"There were no bar girls to entertain!"  
you don't need an entertainment licence to employ staff- you need an entertainment licence to play copyrighted music in a venue...

Yes Samantha,  thai civilians hate the RTP, not for 'selective' law enforcement, but for their 'site work' to make money.

Here a short story:
A few years ago 2 thai friends, after completing their thai university education did open a small bar in Rawai.
Most of their customers were nearby living foreigners and their thai wives because of the good atmosphere and absence of bar ...

Lets see what happens. The police in Thailand are worse than the mafia. Correction, they are the mafia.

Kurt | 23 September 2016 - 13:02:34

Anyone in Thailand who feels the RTP not needs a real clean up?
Things getting worse in RTP Force.
No weapons on them in free time, specially not when they go to pubs.
I consider that as being the same driving a car after drinking.

I am still shocked by the murder by a drunk Chalong police officer ( shooting from his car) on Patak road Chalong a working terrace waitress at 4AM in the morning...

Alcohol,  guns,  and pseudo police. Not a good mix.
