PAD Closes Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport

People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) protesters stormed Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport, camping out, shutting the place down.
Shots have been fired, people injured, no flights in or out of Thailand at Suvarnabhumi Airport at this time.

Doesn't look good.

Bangkok Police Stopping Tourists, Looking For Easy Money

Notice the police?
They are out in droves on the street looking for anyone and anything to bust. This is what happens when the take is down due to a lower tourist season. Just walking home I have been stopped twice in the last week.

Seems the police here are clueless about profiling.
The only thing they can hope to bust someone walking around for is drugs. That is easily a 10k hit for a couple of men in the tighty brownies.
BTW - they really sit close to each other on the smaller motorbikes.
