The student claims the man threatened him with a weapon.
When: February 4th, 2021
Where: Khok Samrong fresh market, Lopburi province
Perpetrators: Unnamed student
Victims: Nai Ong, 36
What: On February 4th, 2021, a video clip was shared across social media of a student in uniform kicking the head of a man on the ground at the Khok Samrong fresh market in Lopburi province.
Since the incident spread online, more information has come out about the victim. The victim’s sister, Mrs. Payom, said that her younger brother was psychiatrically ill. He liked to go to the market to ask for spare change and ask for snacks, and offer the vendors to clean their floors.
He was well known among the vendors in the market. He never hurt anybody. He may have looked unkempt and dirty, but he never caused a problem.
The victim, Nai Ong, was brought to the police station after the attack to meet with the perpetrator, the student from the clip. The student was asked why he lashed out with such violence. The student replied that he was defensive because Nai Ong asked for money, and when the he didn’t give it, he said that Nai Ong pretended to use a weapon to threaten the student. Therefore he acted out of self-defense to teach Nai Ong a lesson.
Nai Ong was taken to the hospital with injuries including a swollen brain.

My take: I haven’t seen the clip, but from what I’ve read, it is difficult to watch due to its savagery.
I don’t believe the kid’s story, but the verdict’s still out.
