Gen. Prayuth: Abracadabra…!
Police officer: I can see now!… From now on, I’ll see who breaks the laws.
Caption: Uncle Too’s magic power is awesome… even those who are blind for a long time can be cured.
[‘Uncle Too’ is Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the National Council for Peace and Order.
Using a Thai Buddhist ritual, he spits sacred water at the blind police to heal them magically. This refers to the sudden flood of law and order issues that the military has forced the police to deal with since the coup. Normally the Thai police look the other way on many issues of crime and safety in deference to local vested interests.]
