Khao San Road bouncers warned against use of violence after one slaps foreign vacationer (video)

The Superintendent of Chana Songkram Police Station rounded up all of the bouncers working on Bangkok’s notorious Khao San Road yesterday to remind them not to use violence in opposition to tourists and partygoers.
The warning follows a current viral video of a security guard, working at a nightclub on Khao San Road, handcuffing a Westerner and repeatedly slapping him within the face.
The vacationer – who is apparently a YouTuber – appears utterly confused by the guard’s violent behaviour.
It all began when the vacationer reached for a bottle of water that he thought was complimentary. Turns out it wasn’t.
At Dollar , the Superintendent of Chana Songkram Police Station Pol. Col. Sanong Saengmanee met with 30 security guards working at venues alongside the Khao San Road, reports Matichon.
The police officer said he called the emergency meeting to remind bouncers of the foundations following the inappropriate behaviour seen in the clip.
He stated that sort of behaviour will make vacationers really feel unsafe and put them off coming to Thailand and will negatively have an effect on the economic system of Khao San Road.
The two bouncers seen within the clip have been each fired from their positions. The venue – “The Club” – was ordered to shut for three days to improve its administration processes.
The police officer said that bouncers on Khao San Road might carry handcuffs and use them in instances of robbery or when it is appropriate. Sometimes, it is greater than essential to handcuff people to guard tourists’ security.
The superintendent added that no charges had been filed against the offending bouncers because the tourist in the clip did not file a police report.
The Club issued a public assertion apologising for the incident and stated they have been retraining their staff to improve their quality of service.
The superintendent added that one other video surfaced final night of a Thai girl talking in an Isaan dialect – a taxi driver – kicking a international tourist in an argument over a scratch on her automotive.
The foreigner did not do something to the woman’s automobile, he was simply making an attempt to make her conscious that he noticed a Tuk Tuk driver crash into it. The occasions within the video took place, to no one’s surprise, on the entrance of Khao San Road..
