Thai Senator "Accidentally" Kills Secretary With Submachine Gun, Has Arrest Immunity, Faces $636 Fine

We had great hopes that following the return of Merkel from vacation, the VIX would finally post an uptick. Alas, it appears that the Fed's new market desk head will not relent until the VIX is at or below 0 (alternatively, stock volume will hit 0 first, in either case confirming the death of equities as anything resembling a discounting mechanism, and validating it as a plaything of central banks). Which means that until reality does come back first slowly and then very fast, we have to focus on more "off the beaten path" news. Such as this one courtesy of BBC: Thai MP Boonsong Kowawisarat 'accidentally kills secretary.' With a submachine gun. In a restaurant. Has yet to be arrested. And faces a $636 fine if convicted.

Senator Boonsong Kowawisarat took out a 9mm Uzi submachine gun while waiting for food, the Bangkok Post reported.

 

He told police the gun accidentally discharged and his secretary was shot in the stomach.

 

Police say that the shooting happened in Phrae province, northern Thailand.

 

Police say that because Mr Boonsong was in shock after the incident, the restaurant owner rushed the secretary to hospital where she succumbed to gunshot wounds.

 

Correspondents say that it is not clear whether Mr Boonsong knew the gun was loaded before the shooting.

 

"From our initial inquiry, the secretary's family will not sue because they were relatives and it was an accident - he did not mean to do it," a local police officer told AFP by telephone.

 

Officials said it was also unclear why the senator was armed at the meal.

 

Police have yet to arrest the senator - a member of the upper house of the Thai parliament - as he is protected by parliamentary privilege, the Bangkok Post reported.

 

Mr Boonsong faces a maximum of 10 years imprisonment and a 20,000 baht fine if convicted.

That's $636. And now back to the doldrums.

A Mae Hong Son senator is facing charges of manslaughter following the accidental shooting of his wife.

Mae Hong Son Senator Boonsong Kowawisarach, 56, was removing ammunition from his gun when it suddenly discharged, shooting his 46-year-old wife Chanakarn Dedkhad in the abdomen.

She died on her way to hospital.

Wang Chin Police Station received the report on the shooting at 10pm on Sunday.

Police will submit a letter to the Senate president for permission to prosecute Boonsong, who is now protected by parliamentary immunity.

"At this point, he is charged with reckless action causing the death of another person," Phrae police chief Maj General Wisut Wongkham said.

Chanakarn's relatives said they have no intention of taking legal action against Boonsong because they believe it was an accident.

An informed source said Boonsong was partially paralysed and his condition could be a reason for the accident.

I'm sure you meant "baht", but I did witness the excellent spectacle of a drunk and rudely combative french couple get beaten down by thais; the dumb bitch started a fight with the thai girl (and her friends) who asked her not to sit on their car, and the tall, noisy, piece of shit dude opted to scrap with the thai guys, twice, and the second time, after returning from having retreated, the french guy got a wooden bat to the skull.  Awesome scene; I clapped and cheered. :-)

At a time when the defense is trying to claim their client is bat-shit crazy, the Denver Post comes out with a story about what James Holmes was like just a short year ago. When he applied to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign neuroscience program they wanted him so badly they waved tuition and fees and offered him a yearly paycheck of $22,660 just to attend their school. Out of 150 qualified applicants yearly they take between 5-15. James Holmes was one of those.
 
How does James get from point A to point B? How do we get from one of the brightest students in the nation, a guy who’s love of knowledge made him want to study the mind, a student so desired they would offer to pay him cash to attend, to a guy practically drooling on himself in a courtroom seemingly with no idea where he was?
-----
Back in March of 2011, the University of Illinois had him come up and they interviewed him…

“Those who met you … during your interview visit felt that your personal and professional qualities are truly outstanding and that you will be an excellent match for our program,” said the Illinois acceptance letter from professor J. Lee Beverly.”
 
The Denver Post also references an article put out by the News Gazette which detailed his application history a bit more. Holmes was exceedingly bright, the kind of kid you want your child to be, the kind you wish you were.
 
“Holmes’ GRE quantitative score was 800 (94th percentile), his verbal score was 710 (98th percentile), and he had an analytical writing score of 4 (45th percentile), according to his UI application. His GPA was 3.94 out of 4.00, according to the application.”

 ___ listen to Holmes himself…

“I have always been fascinated by the complexities of long lost thought seemingly arising out of nowhere into a stream of awareness,” he wrote. “… These are the very cognitive processes which enable us to acquire information and retain it. They are at the core of what distinguishes us as people. Due to the seemingly infinite vastness of indefinite knowledge, we must be selective in our pursuits of knowledge. This is why I have chosen to study the primary source of all things, our own minds.”
 
“Rational people act based on incentives for self-fulfillment, including fulfilling needs of self-development and needs of feeling useful and helpful to others. I look forward to fulfilling my quest to advance my knowledge and I plan to use my critical thinking skills by studying the subject I am passionate about, neuroscience.”
 
Does that sound like the guy we saw sitting at the defense table blankly looking around or emoting various quizzical expressions? Does that sound like a “spitter” who needed to be gagged?

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - The last thing Andrea Fernandez recalls before being drugged is holding her newborn baby on a Bogota city bus.

Police found her three days later, muttering to herself and wandering topless along the median strip of a busy highway. Her face was badly beaten and her son was gone.

Fernandez is just one of hundreds of victims every month who, according to Colombian hospitals, are temporarily turned into zombies by a home-grown drug called scopolamine which has been embraced by thieves and rapists.

. . .  Colorless, odorless and tasteless, scopolamine is slipped into drinks and sprinkled onto food. Victims become so docile that they have been known to help thieves rob their homes and empty their bank accounts. Women have been drugged repeatedly over days and gang-raped or rented out as prostitutes.

It’s funny – I just did a quick Wikipedia search and it turns out the Anschutz family (the family the Medical campus was named after after they donated $91 million) owns over half of the Regal Entertainment Group (cinemas). It just so happens that Cinemark, which the Century 16 theater in Aurora belongs to, is listed as their biggest competitor.
 
Then I accidentally came across news from August 7th, apparently a guy with a 9mm handgun, ammo, knives, tactical gear (!) and a gas mask (!) was apprehended at a Regal 16 (!) movie theater in Ohio. Guess which movie he was going to see…

800 is not the 94th percentile on the quant test.  800 is the max possible, it cannot be less than the 99th.

If, hypothetically, the test were so dumbed down that half the people who took it obtained perfect scores, then a perfect score would only amount to 50th percentile; getting that score would mean you outdid only half of the population that took it.  In particular, it would certainly not mean that you outdid 99% of the people who took it as you seem to believe. 

In fact the GRE is not this dumbed down, but it is entirely possible that 6% of the people who take the math test get perfect scores, therefore, earning "only" a 94th percentile ranking on that test.   

Thu, 08/16/2012 - 13:40 | 2711215 Doomer_Marx
Doomer_Marx's picture

They changed the test several times since I took it but at least it did used to be 99 percentile for a perfect score in qualitative or analytical and missing one problem equaled a 97 percentile. Doesn't mean that it currently couldn't be a 94 percentile for a perfect score now but usually it is 99 percentile on standardized tests. I think the 94 is more likely a mistake than a perfect score being that low of a percentile.

On GRE's website they have this little bit and I think this may be where the mistake came from:

An 800 on the quantitative section on the old GRE corresponds with a score of only 166 on the new test.  So, getting a perfect math score on the old test only puts you in the 94th percentile on the new test. ETS has made the math content harder on the new GRE to allow for differentiation of high scoring candidates for quant-intensive programs like business school, engineering and the physical sciences.

Compared to the new test, a perfect score is only 94 percentile. But when he took the old test, he was at the 99 percentile for that test. It is unknown if he would get 94 percentile or if he would get better on the new test. So it would be incorrect to say he scored 94 percentile based on a perfect score on the old test, which seems to be what they have done.

I hear what you're saying, but have a little hunmanity.  Teddy buried 3 of his older brothers.  One died in war and two were gunned down by assassins.  Teddy had one of those strange small plane crashes that "only" shattered his spine instead of killing him.  He had the rest of his extended family exposed to the same cruelties.

This is an amazing post.  2702036      What happened to this amazing, brilliant kid during the past year in Colorado?

About Teddy, who knows what he would have become in a more perfect world, but to me, this kind of thing 2702036  probably applies to some extent to Ted and our other USA elected "Leaders" as well.

There was probably a dozen others standing around including his spotter.

I finally understand foreign policy - If you can't win their hearts and minds and discuss differences - shoot 'em in the fucking head.

Jesus... they made the trail for killing two people seem all legal like.

""Following a mediation process and upon examination of the evidence with the recommendation of the military court, both sides have reached a plea bargain in which the indictment will be adjusted, and he will be convicted of using a weapon illegally," a military statement said."

 

yes... THEIR mediation process in a military court... with BOTH SIDES.  Who are "BOTH SIDS"?  The military on one of course... and what, some sort of Israeli Humanitarian NGO on the other claiming legitimacy over the grievances of the family who lost two members?

 

The article needs to be more specific.

"From our initial inquiry, the secretary's family will not sue because they were relatives and it was an accident - he did not mean to do it," a local police officer told AFP by telephone"

 

She was either a real bitch and they are glad to get rid of her or the senator wrote them a fat check.

Her left nipple drove me to dire extremes...I lost my compass. She lost her head. Now I am in hell when I could have been in heaven dancing cheek to cheek! That would be the drame passionnel version of the act...

Accidents don't happen at dinner tables when you only eat with fork and knife. Uzi is for mafiosi. And she was his intimate henchwoman. She was his political shield and he is the sword that's lost its sense of honour. It needs to be said : Thai politicians are often machomen; its part of being local feudal baron. But the Uzi...that is not family material. Strange, was he under threat...that's the other scenario.
