With all the nonsense in BKK, have people been noticing what seems like daily killings in the South? This is a very serious problem which has never been adequately addressed in ten years and is now overshadowed by the jockeying for power in BKK, which in reality has nothing to do with reform or corruption whatsoever, by the way. Approximately 5,500 have died there and it still continues. Why?
