The national police chief has voiced his support for the idea that street brawling students should be conscripted into the military service and sent to the restive Deep South.

criminals for military service ThailandPol Gen Chakthip Chaichinda said Monday that he found the idea interesting.

“If they want to fight, send them to the three southernmost provinces and give each of them a gun and a knapsack so that they learn some real experience which will hopefully turn them into good citizens,”said the police chief, adding that serving the country as a soldier is not a bad idea and it is much better than wielding knives or axes to fight one another on the streets causing panic among the people.

He pointed out that there are about 2,000 flash points in the city where rival students are likely to clash one another and, hence, a timeframe should not be set on how long it will take to solve the problem of street brawling.
