No patron, no justice: "I'm not here today to ask for anything. I came to parade to the world an injustice that happened to me," says a bitter Mr. Prinya Sumalgun, a house painter from Ayudhya. In February last year, after his pick-up truck was stolen, he'd managed to track down both his truck and the thief. But the police at the Phra Nakorn Sri Ayudhya District station refused to lift a finger about it. He continues, with redened eyes, "I have no choice. I'm totally discouraged, in despair. When I get back there I'm going to kill someone."
