Poor souls... Thai people are too
cute for turning to crime because
of being evil. I believe that in most cases in Thailand lots of
good citizens magnetized easily
by the world of crime because the
so called "financial factor".
Most of these people are under
heavy pressure. Simply -no cash.

The way the female inmates were being searched I would not call a thorough search rather more of a "pat". The last search I went though at the airport was more thorough than that.
