Criminal Court attacked by gunmen

The Criminal Court was attacked by gunmen on Friday night but no one was injured, police said.

Pol Col Chatree Kanchanakanti, the superintendent of Phahon Yothin Police Station, said investigators suspected that at least two motorcycle-riding gunmen opened fire at the Criminal Court on Ratchadaphisek Road at about 9pm.

Police found an M79 mortar at the scene.

The shooting shattered a glass window and damaged the ceiling of a court room.

Officers were checking closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage of the incident.

More attacks on an empty property. I wonder who it could be?

Who jumps to conclusions? Why does it have to be any "party"'? Or is your world only definable in terms of two groups; pro and anti; black and white? Rather a child's world, don't you think?

Police cannot be more dysfuntional than they already are. 1st of March is set as the date for their next fund raiser!

Which party despises the courts again?

The police will like always have no clue. Neither the DSI nor the police will ask for court arrest warrants. We will read that the aim of the gunman was to just scare rather than kill. The police is busy trying for multiple arrest warrants for each of the protest leaders. Sick politics. Scare media.

Thailand will become cowboy town again if the police is dysfunctional. There are too many unsolvable mysterious violent attacks on hand if there are going out of control, many lives will be sacrificed.
