Yeah, unfortunately you need to be logged into FB to see the posts. Bangkok Post has now posted the news, although it's not up to date as reports on FB have him holed up in T21.

12 killed as soldier opens fire in Korat

NAKHON RATCHASIMA: At least 12 people were reported killed and an unknown number injured in a shooting spree by a soldier who sprayed bullets at a commander, fellow soldiers and civilians in Muang district on Saturday.

The attacker first shot dead his commander and two others inside a military camp before fleeing in a stolen Humvee. He fired at civilians along the route to Terminal 21 shopping mall in Muang district. The attacker streamed the shootings in the mall on Facebook Live and took a selfie holding a rifle.

He was still posting text messages on Facebook at 7.10pm Saturday. An earlier post showed a picture of a hand holding a .44 Magnum with an amulet wrapped around the barrel.

Thai media reported that 12 people were killed. The number of injured people was not yet known.

Lt Gen Thanya Kriatisarn, commander of the Second Army Region, said police and soldiers were hunting the attacker, identified as Cpl Jakrapanth Thomma of Surathampithak camp.

The slain commander has been identified as Col Anantharot Krasae. A 63-year-old woman and another soldier were also killed at the camp. Other details of the attack are still emerging.

Slow and painful is an understandable sentiment, but let's keep it humane and practical please. A bullet through the head will terminate the situation and free the hostages. And one of my two arguments against capital punishment, the chance of convicting an innocent, isn't applicable during an active hostage situation.

 

But given his rank, shouldn't he get corporal punishment?

Good, hope this is comes to an end soon. Heard the death toll is now 20....

I hope that includes the idiot, is still 19 innocents dead (assuming that commander was innocent, he may triggered that idiot in which case he got what he deserved).

Yes, we all know with the saving face BS Thai men can be boiling but are taught to keep it inside..... until they finally blow up.

Can only imagine the drill sergeant- private type relationship would only exacerbate that

But clearly a nut job to take his issues to a crowded mall full of innocents
