A week later i asked the girls what happened to the men, they told me not to ask about them.
I think Thailand is a pretty safe place on the whole as long as you behave yourself. But there is no doubt if you cross the line you will be dealt with one way or another.
A bar owner I know told me of a story told about an incident he saw a number of years ago. It happened at the Beer Bar complex at the start of walking street, the one with the boxing ring.
One of the boxers there was basically rounded on by a number of motosai drivers who all had knives and basically stabbed the guy to death not only in full view of everyone in the bar complex, but also in front of a number of watching policemen. After they had killed him they collected all the knives up and handed them over to a policeman for disposal, they then threw the body in the back of a Baht bus and carted him off. Don't know what the guy did to deserve it, but he obviously pissed off the wrong person and his death was ordered by the police.
I see falangs badly misbehaving there all the time, and many don't realise how close they are to being getting a severe beating/being killed.
