Thai police in New Year warning – shooting in the air makes you a murderer

Thai police have been out on the streets to tell the public not to shoot in the air at New Year.

Cops in U-Thong district of Suphanburi were parading about with placards saying firing in the air would make you a murderer.

Arrests were promised for anyone celebrating 2018 in this fashion, reported Daily News.

Deputy chief Charn Yangngam toured the shops, gold traders, and banks in the area – and asked everyone to pass on the message to the kids.

Celebratory gunfire has been known to cause death around the world.

In the US the habit of firing in the air has differing sanctions from state and is treated as a misdemeanor and a felony, according to Wikipedia.

At New Year in Georgia in 2010 a four year old boy was killed inside his church “The Church of God of Prophesy” after a stray bullet was presumed to have entered via the roof.

Someone was hit in Thailand at a wedding last year.

The practice is banned in most countries.
