    Leader of demolishers shot dead at JJ Market

    Leader of demolishers shot dead at Chatuchak Sunday Market









    A leader of a group of men sent to demolish shops at the Chatuchak Sunday Market early Wednesday was shot dead.

    Police said Samlee Yai-im, 50, was shot at his forehead while leading some 20 men to vandalise shops at the market at 1 am.

    Police said they did not know where he bullet came from.

    The market was owned by Thanasarn Sombat, which has been unsuccessfully trying to evict vendors.

    The gunfire frightened the men who tried to flee the scene but they were rounded up by police who happened to arrive at the scene.

    They admitted that they were hired by Samlee between Bt200 to Bt500 each to demolish the shops.

    Not sure getting killed is equal to pulling down some shit (s'pose it depends on how you look at it though)....maybe having his house torn down would be more karmic

    Remember when they ulawfully demolished the square at Sukhumwit? There were rogers with their johns actually engaged in bedroom olympics while it was falling down. They had to run starkers down the soi. Also there were some pets inside the bars, which had beams, etc fall on them and they were consequently killed (murdered).

    Re: Leader of demolishers shot dead at JJ Market

    But isn't it a tricky one as the chap that hired these people is (I assume) trying to 'protect' his livelihood....and they in turn are trying to protect theirs by shooting said hired chap? Who trumps whom?

    I'm sure the chap who hired them is a jerk. :P

    Why not follow legal channels before getting your thugs for hire army up and running?

    Taking out the leader sounds well intentioned and calculated though...

    I'm sure the chap that shot the bloke is a bit of a jerk...and a murderer

    But we don't really know any of them do we?

    To be fair it looks like they did try legal channels first:

    The market was owned by Thanasarn Sombat, which has been unsuccessfully trying to evict vendors.

    Yeah, "Get out or I'll send my thugs to get you!"

    Would I be correct to assume they're just going to build another hotel there?

    ^ I personally didn't read it that way.

    But then you (or me at least) could argue that the people that were being chucked out did pretty much the same (lets not fight to stay here legally let's kill someone).

    To me at least knocking shit down isn't quite as bad (by all means try it out though to prove me wrong ) as a bullet in the head....and I don't mean the film or song!!!

    ^ Yes, I'm reading that the people with shops are the innocent and it's the corporate pig dogs who are the antagonists.

    I could be wrong...but the same thing happened on Sukhomvit some time ago...

    Mate they shot and killed a bloke....so while they might have had more 'rightness' initially....now they got Jack Shite rightness IMO!!!

    They put their shops in a market that weren't theirs....no?

    So you'd be cool with me coming to your house and just moving in? Or would you want to kick me out big time?
