[Refers to the long delayed reform of the Thai police, ostensibly to improve performance. Actually, police reform is intended to break Thaksin control of the force, which has often appeared to be acting on Thaksin’s behalf in the past–particularly in its conduct during the Red Shirt sieges of Bangkok in 2009 and 2010.]
