The suspect, Narin Prasertkaew claimed that they were a gift for his girlfriend. He has been charged with theft.
In his possession, police found four pairs of nylon panties in different colors, which belonged to the relative of a patient at Udon Thani Hospital.

Narin told police that he had been laid off from a job at a gas station two months earlier and had been asking for food at the hospital. He then spotted the panties, which reminded him of his Laotian girlfriend.

Because his girlfriend’s panties have holes in them and he loves her very much, Narin took a risk and stole the panties.

“I stole them for my girlfriend. Her panties have holes in the butt area,” he told the police.

Father disowns son for participating in senseless White Rally

0

A North Dakota father of a white nationalist who participated in the Charlottesville rally which left one protester dead and others injured, has disowned his son in an open letter he wrote and sent to the editor of a local newspaper in North Dakota.
“My name is Pearce Tefft, and I am writing to all, with regards to my youngest son, Peter Tefft, an avowed white nationalist who has been featured in a number of local new stories over the last several months,” the letter begins.

“I, along with all of his siblings and his entire family, wish to loudly repudiate my son’s vile, hateful, and racist rhetoric and actions. We do not know specifically where he learned these beliefs. He did not learn them at home,” Tefft wrote in the letter, published in The Fargo Forum.

He added that his son “is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast.”

His son, Peter Tefft was reportedly shown in footage from the rally speaking with a cameraman. In an interview on Monday, the self-described “pro-white activist” told CBS Minnesota that he’s simply fighting for civil rights.

“As far as the term ‘white supremacist’ goes, in my view, anybody that thinks white people don’t need advocacy, they are the white supremacists,” Peter Tefft said.

But his father, Pearce, said his son’s views were not learned at home and he hopes that the family will not be held accountable for Peter’s actions.

According to the dad, “His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews as well as his parents,” Tefft continued in his letter. “Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview.”

In a statement by Peter’s nephew, Jacob Scott, he described him as a “crazy Nazi and said: “We reject him wholly, both him as a vile person and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor.”

Other reasons listed for the strike include non-payment of salaries, non-payment of earned academic allowance (EAA), removal of universities staff schools from funding by government and non-implementation of provisions of the 2014 pension reform act with respect to retired professors and their salaries.The memo issued by ASUU reads in part

“The national executive council (NEC) of ASUU met at the university of Abuja main campus, Giri, on the 12th of August 2017 to consider the results of a referendum from all branches in a bid to ascertain ways of convincing government to implement outstanding aspects of the 2009 agreement and MoU of 2013.

The result of the referendum showed that an overwhelming majority of the branches of our union voted for the strike. In the light of the foregoing, and having exhausted all avenues to get government to fully implement the 2009 FGN-ASUU agreement and the 2013 MoU as well as related demands, resolved to embark on a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action commencing Sunday, 13th August 2017.”
