Shooting in Korat Terminal21 Mall Now

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

I'm surprised that this kind of thing doesn't happen more often. I guess serving in the Thai army, in itself, could drive a person mad - a braindead job, following orders of braindead superiors who have no honor day in and day out. But who knows, he might have had underlying issues beyond that - they wouldn't have checked or cared.
It is well documented that Thais are all generally braindead. But why do you claim they have no honor day in and day out? Please provide a link or furnish some evidence of that.
I didn't write that Thais in general have no honor. You may google the Thai army's countless crimes and atrocities yourself if you're unconvinced that they have no honor.

It has to do with a property deal went wrong. Gunman (dead) bought a property from the mother-in-law (dead) of his boss (also dead). Seems like the transaction met a problem with something like 50,000 baht.
That's bitterness gone mad....a 1600 $ trigger-situation and a soldier,fully equiped, supposed to be strong at enduring stress, kills 30 random civil compatriots.... Can't help but imagine the victims happy to give him 53 $ each to spare their lives, if asked before...it's a silly thought i know...hard to rationalize rage...

RIP* to the victims, heal well to the survivors

* Rebirth In Peace.

Police in Bangkok have reported that they are searching for a 40 year old man who has allegedly fired more than 20 gunshots in public space close to Chulalongkorn University this morning.

Eyewitnesses claim they heard the gunshots in the Pathumwan area, on Chula Soi 10, near Chulalongkorn University. At this stage the situation is unclear whether anyone has been injured as a result of the unfolding incident. The reports of another shooting incident comes just days after the mass shooting in Korat, Nakhon Ratchasima which killed 29 and injured up to 50 others.

I just heard it has been going on 5 hours already.
Shots fired into the air, nobody yet hurt.
Area closed and shooter's family trying to talk him down.

Could this be a copycat situation, monkey see, monkey do?

The one that really took the cake in the land of mass shootings was the 63 year old millionaire that shot up Las Vegas, taking his inspiration from a shooter in a tower in Texas in 1966!

Pretty exciting stuff, but I'd rather people smile instead of fire!

GUNPERSON WHO FIRED 40 SHOTS CLOSE TO CHULA UNI ARRESTED

Although police spokesman Kitsana Phatanacharoen said the incident is not another “mass shooting” as reported by some on social media, there is a widespread fear in Thailand over a possible copycat of the killings in Korat.

If he was a copycat he wasn't that good at it. The terminal 21 shooter scored 30 kills, this guy none. With 20 shots he should have at least got 20 kills.
