    Only in Thailand

    Hi

    again read stories like this and just shake my head and chuckle and say WTF

    http://www.bangkokpost.com/learning/...ports-to-court

    so in Thailand kill someone in car crash or hold the city hostage just become a monk until it blows over.

    nothing to do with beliefs or piousness or actually anything religious just another scam to avoid justice. of the elite or rich

    I missed the part that says they let him off. I don't think it will "blow over" in 15 days.

    True. However, there is always the possibility of the I-have-to-go-abroad-for-medical-treatment to fall back on after leaving the monkhood if necessary.

    The joke here in China is, if a taxi runs you down, get up quick before he finishes you off. Basically, if a taxi driver kills a pedestrian, they have to pay a one off payment set by the government. If they injure you on the other hand... they have to pay that person for the rest of their lives. While it is said in jest, as always, there is a little truth in there too.
