More Snatches on Bandit Alley - Porsenchey

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.

More Snatches on Bandit Alley - Porsenchey

Post by Mishmash »

Another victory for the embattled boys in my Sangkat!

Bandit Alley - The infamous Airport Road stretch is now a full on battlefield, with travelers and residents having to run the daily gauntlet of bag thieves phone thieves, armed robbers, fake taxi back alley blaggards etc.

Today we saw one fake taxi driver who mugged a Chinese visitor with the old "down the alley with his boot boy mates trick" - caught and somewhat sadly beaten up. (reported on CEO)

Here we have a young Chinese lady who gratefully recovered her belongings, with the perp preparing himself to meet his destiny later.

Stirling Work - Send the boys their beers :beer3:

Kakap 2 : Blaggards 0

Bonus

The BKK boys are vying for a shot at the title of Top Cop of the day with a late-strike

The stretch from just beyond Chom Chao roundabout going out of town to the lights at corner 110 and 2004.

The Chinese have taken over opposite the airport so are prime targets as they are usually carrying wads from their businesses - you know how they are with their man-bags and the ladies purses.

People coming out of the airport who get tuk-tuks are snatched every day.

The latest scam was the fake taxi driver taking the new arrival down a blind alley and calling in his mates.

At night you basically can't go down the back streets alone - simple as that.

The stepped-up night patrols are successful in pulling likely suspects and turning them over, but they can't be everywhere.

Adding to that are the nightly accidents from mainly Chinese speeding and destroying the dividers or mowing down the motos. Carnage..

From a quick search, these are just some of the threads on bag-snatches around the Phnom Penh International Airport and on the road into town that have been reported on CEO in the past year. Some threads contain several incidents. Haven't included phone snatches.
The first thread below is an announced police crackdown on bag-snatchers in this area in Sept 2018, so the police are not getting on top of this at all.

Yeah you can see the wads in the stories....



It truly is Bandit Alley.

I regularly go to my friends house - just on Kakab 2 up in the quiet relatively undeveloped parts, for small parties, but I ride home with the boys - armed. It's not worth the risk.

You have seen the body count on the news - even on here - killed for a fucking moto right on the donkey track outside my friend's new home, just for one instance.

Porsenchey is the wild west.

Uncivilized bullshit. Nearly nobody I know has been beaten as a child and they are all not stealing and robbing. There is a reason for child violence being illegal in most respectable countries, it fucks up their minds. The reasons for these kids robbing can be found in bad parenting, poverty, and in the utterly incompetent Cambodian police force.

Ahhh, its a good counter post.

Ok you say poverty is linked to crime. The studies are divided with some saying yes and some saying no. There is no consensus.

Child Violence leads to Psychological Problems - correct - I am one example - fucked me up for years when my mother broke my skull.

Bad parenting - correct according to most studies.

The absence of the father is the single most important cause of crime.1) In fact, boys who are fatherless from birth are three times as likely to go to jail as peers from intact families, while boys whose fathers do not leave until they are 10 to 14 years old are two times as likely to go to jail as their peers from intact families.2) According to Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation, children without a father are more than twice as likely to be arrested for a juvenile crime and are three times more likely to go to jail by the time they reach age 30 than are children raised in intact families.3) Adolescents who had a positive relationship with their fathers are less likely to be arrested, belong to a gang, damage property, steal, or run away compared to their peers with less positive relationships with their fathers.4) Along with the increased probability of family poverty and heightened risk of delinquency, a father's absence is associated with a host of other social problems. The three most prominent effects are lower intellectual development, higher levels of illegitimate parenting in the teenage years, and higher levels of welfare dependency.5) According to a 1990 report from the Department of Justice, more often than not, missing and “throwaway” children come from single-parent families, families with step parents, and cohabiting-adult families.

Incompetent police force - this is a personal opinion i guess - can you prove their detection rates are less than other countries?

And more to the point - if you have some way to improve it - you can come and meet the Porsenchey Chief of Police tomorrow - he will genuinely listen to whatever ideas you have for improvement.

I say this last point because if you do have ideas to contribute, the boys at our embattled station will listen and respect you. You have my word on that.

Be a man of action brother! Take an active part in your community rather than complaining.

Hmm, as there are no independent studies of the Cambodian police I obviously can't prove it scientifically, but anyone who has spent a bit of time in the country should have made their own observations.

Taking action?! I took the action of leaving a few months ago ;)

On the other hand, is there a study that proves a beneficial effect of hitting kids?

Interesting. Back in the 90's and early 2000's nobody with any sense would be in that area at night. Before Toul Kork got built up, the area was well known bandit country and being out there at night was a guarantee for something to happen to you. Seems to have returned to it's well deserved infamous reputation.
