Walk into an alley or somewhere with no witnesses. When he follows you there, kick his ass and he won't be able to identify which foreigner did it to him.Joker Poker wrote:Post from Rain Dog today elsewhere:
One time I got aggressive with a particularly insidious motodop who works Riverside and followed me once for half a block with "want marijuana" "want massage" "want young girl - got very young" --- where I lost it -- turned around in front of a crowded restaurant and said very loudly "I don't want any fucking young girls now stop following me" . He looked surprised and with a lot of people looking at us turned his moto and sped off.
Probably bad judgement on my part to escalate to that point, but we all have our boundaries. I would not take the chirping in Khmer from frustrated drivers who cannot find fares too personally though.
This is almost certainly the same man. He approached me again last week while I was walking, it was as though he'd never spoken to me before. Really odd and creepy.
I am 50/50 it is either or, happened to me several times just back from Riverside a few times a couple years ago, surely not the same guy ? But just pulling the same extortion "scam".Rain Dog wrote:Joker Poker wrote:Given his persistence I think he is either a thug looking to get someone involved in a bad situation or more likely he is employed by one of NGOs here hunting kiddy fiddlers.
You expect that motodop would have a go at him alone? No chance. If he comes at you it will be with 7 of his buddies and it won't be only with fists. If someone wants to be the tough guy hero, he damn well better really be a tough guy.0to60 wrote: Walk into an alley or somewhere with no witnesses.

Also, it is probably unfair to call him a Motodop. I've encountered him numerous times over the last few years and he's never actually asked if I wanted to go somewhere, neither have I seen him with any passengers. It is always his vice providing spiel. So, I suppose this adds more weight to the possibilities that he's solely involved in pimping kids and dealing drugs or he's a plant.
You would be surprised. We don't look the same. I often encounter Tuks Tuks who remember me from journeys taken a month ago.0to60 wrote:If he follows you like a puppy and there are no witnesses, obviously it's just one guy. Since we all look the same to him. How is he going to identify you later?
Physically attacking the guy is not a good idea. Even if you are bad ass enough to fuck him up, it's a vendetta culture and you could well find yourself strolling down Riverside only to get a machete or iron pipe to the back of the neck.
I like the idea of getting his photo, posting it, and then putting some serious pressure on NGOs to deal with him as a potential perp --- failing which it might become obvious they are protecting him as a plant --- in which case the same NGOs need to be called out public for such a sleazy and unethical approach to the problem.
The Rum pours strong and thin. Beat out the dustman with the Rain Dogs;

I've been recognized years later in PP, and called out by name by people I barely remembered. But this guy acted like he'd never spoken to him before. Just a week later. One way or another he should be dealt with. I would think pimping children is illegal. And personally I would be very insulted if someone thought I was interested in buying children for any reason. I'm sure you or the OP would be as well.
