Students' anti-goverment protest turned out to be deadly violence: 5 students reported dead
After several hours of continuous shooting and grenade throwing, Thai police armed-force refused to enter Ramkam-Haeng's University in Bangkok, to help out thousands of out-cry students, on the reason that it was too dangerous for the police.
Gun-shot & grenade as war zone broke up since yesterday. More than 2000 Ramkam-Haeng's University, unarmed, have been staying overnight inside their university with extreme fear. Students' request for help had been going on since last night. This morning the situation was even worse, the students have to lock themselves up in the class-room because 8-9 men Killing sprees threw grenade, shot at students and roaming around buildings in the university.
After anti-government students clashed with the pro-government red-shirt people on November 30th, 2013, violence had been getting out of control. So far, 5 students were reported dead, several injured, without food or water. Emergency response team worked with extreme difficulties getting into the shooting area. EMS officres reported of un-identified snipers shooting at their van, obstructing them to deliver help to the injured students.
So far, more than 10 hours after the SOS request from the President of Ramkam-Haeng's Univerity, Thai police showed no action. The University’s President told news reporter that he was very disappointed that Thai police helped the red-shirt much more that the endangered students.
Speculation have been raised whether the Thai government and the police were implicated in snipers spree. By not responding to the life-threatening emergency upon request, Thai police have been criticized by the Thai citizen for their intentional negligence of students’s safety and human-right violation.
