Remembering the Thaksin Years: Is a dealer worth more than an addict?

From Thairath, March 3, 2003
Title: A fight based on… bodies and victims
At left Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is holding a dead body.
On the body: Victim of drug addict
The policeman behind him is holding a boy on which reads: drug addict… living death
Word above the man’s head: Human rights
The men on the right are carrying a dead body on which reads: shoot to kill
The corpse on the ground: a victim of extrajudicial killing.
[Thaksin’s anti-drug policy was brutal with thousands gunned down in extra-judicial killings. Some academics in Thailand questioned this and it was a major issue for overseas observers, but most in the country, both in the government and opposition, supported the mass killings.]
