Christopher G. Moore Updates: 18 April 2014

Dear Readers,

Most people outside of the criminal class are in favour of reducing crime. The question is what is proven effective and what is speculative can be a blurry line. That is especially true when on law enforcement culture seeks to graft or fix lifted from another culture.

In New York City the 1993 introduction of No Broken Windows by then Mayor Rudy Giuliani was his way to reduce urban crime.

The question is whether such a policy is suitable to be transported and implemented in Bangkok. I have a look at some of the issues involved.

Songkran is over and all eyes are turned on the political front as the time of sanuk has ended, and the water guns stored away, as we enter a period of what appears more conflict with no apparent end in sight.

Next week, I should have some news on the movie front.

Meanwhile, Asia Hand, Paying Back Jack, and The Risk of Infidelity Index are on kindle for Thailand only purchase at $3.99 (about Baht 120). If youve read them, Id be grateful if gift a copy to a friend, introduce him or her to the Vincent Calvino series.

Asia Hand Asia Hand The Risk of Infidelity Index

May the first year of the Thai New Year bring you much success and happiness.

Best,
Christopher
