Brutal beating at the Russian Market

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Ha! I manage to avoid all that by staying away from those areas as much as possible. 8)
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I lived on St. 51 because it was near my workplace. The machete attacks I saw from my balcony. The mob beating I was just driving by... I'd seen beatings back in Australia, and even a horrific manslaughter once, when I was 18. I guess I was young and wanted to party... Didn't know any better. I certainly avoid it now.

It’s 4 streets from TTP pagoda. I asked because the police had closed it off yesterday morning with guns drawn. “Nowhere near”, only a stone throw away.

What are you getting at?

I had to go around some coppers because they had blocked the street and I saw this thread and was wondering if it was the same incident. Apparently it was something separate. That’s all.

Jesus man, you posted that the cops had their "guns drawn", which I found hard to believe, so I asked "really?". I wanted some clarification, because being a non-native English speaker, you might have misspoken.

You find trivial things hard to believe all the time. You didn’t believe me when I said that I pass behind Lucky almost on a daily basis.

Now we’re debating if the guns were drawn or perhaps a few notches below what you consider drawn. Was I even on that street? I guess we will never know. Its’s tedious.

I don't find the fact that you reported that a police officer had his gun unholstered and drawn to be trivial at all.....

....hence why it caught my attention and I asked for clarification from you...

....clarification that never comes because you're a consistently truculent knuckle-head.

I live on 376 and saw no such thing, though could have missed it.
