Acid test



Re: 24-hour tourist police units launched (PM Wednesday, 11 September 2013) – The ‘acid test’ of success will be the crime rate. If the crime rate remains unchanged or rises, this initiative will be deemed a failure. Farang/tourists have a right to be skeptical and unbelieving given Thailand’s police and judicial system. Since both these institutions have failed the people of Thailand, why will a new department be any different?
