Thailand: Senator 'accidentally' kills secretary (with an Uzi)
Bangkok Post ^ | 8/13/12

Posted on 08/13/2012 10:15:11 AM PDT by LibWhacker

A senator for Mae Hong Son has told police he accidentally shot and killed his personal secretary with a submachine gun in a restaurant in Phrae province, a duty officer at Wang Chin police station said on Monday. Senator Boonsong Kowawisarat

The shooting occurred at a restaurant in Wang Chin district of the northern province on Sunday night, Pol Lt Choosak Poonsawat said.

Boonsong Kowawisarat, 55, and his personal assistant Chanakarn Detkard, 46, were travelling to Bangkok in the senator's car and stopped for dinner at a restaurant on a local road in moo 2 in tambon Mae Keng, Phrae.

While waiting for food, Mr Boonsong took out a 9mm Uzi submachine gun. He told police the gun accidentally discharged and his secretary was shot in the stomach.

Mr Boonsong said he was so shocked by the tragedy that the owner of the restaurant had to take Chanakarn to hospital, where she succumbed to the gunshot wound, Pol Lt Choosak Poonsawat said.

It was not known whether Mr Boonsong knew the gun was loaded before the shooting. Police have yet to arrest the senator as he is protected by parliamentary privilege.

When I first read the headline, I thought that Ted Kennedy had come back from the dead.

What else could he do?

His mother didn’t have an Oldsmobile for him to borrow.

Well then...there's no reason NOT to screw around with a loaded sub machine gun now is there?

The secretary knew too much. This sort of “accident” is all too common in Phrae,

The location is some 20 miles from where my wife was born. Likely that the secretary’s last meal was tasty. The waterfall near there is spectacular. Unfortunately, the local politics are hopelessly corrupt.
