Great advice, you'd probably be arrested as soon as you tried to buy the weapon.

'Pop off a few shots'? Like one for each year you'd be spending in Prey Sar.

:stupid:

Anyways, it turns out 1 of my clan studied under him. The official story is something like this....

Guy prangs a moto, slows down, nothing serious. A few start shouting, guys panics and takes off. Chinese whispers start straight away that he killed someone, so a mob takes off after him. Trying to flee the mob he hits one of their motos, causing another accident and forcing him to stop. Sticks and stones are rained down from the pack.

He's already been sent to hospital in Vietnam.

This reminds me of a story from a year ago:

Man beaten by mob after killing three in car crash now comatose in ICU

A man who was savagely beaten by a mob after killing three people and injuring eight more with his car as he tried to flee a collision remained unconscious and under police guard yesterday, with a doctor saying he may not survive.

Police yesterday named Meas Sokheng as the man who smashed a Toyota Camry into several motorbikes as he sped the wrong way up Phnom Penh’s Monivong Boulevard at about 5:30pm on Monday, in what witnesses said was an attempt to flee from a minor collision with another car.

After his car came to a stop, the 30-year-old, a phone seller from Chak Angre Krom commune in the capital’s Meanchey district, was set upon by a mob, which beat him for several minutes until police intervened.

That guy was sentenced to 3 years prison a few months back. The Post's report suggested that his mental faculties were diminished.

The official story is something like this....

You just made that up!

From the wife actually... but it fits well enough with the PPP's latest take on it,

Authorities said Sareth was accused of knocking a motorist from a motorbike near Wat Tuol Santevoan. Witnesses began chasing after Sareth’s car when it failed to stop at the site, but Sareth eventually was brought to a halt near Preah Kossamak Hospital in Tuol Kork and cornered by outraged residents.The victim of the hit and run has yet to be identified.

The video also shows people kicking Sareth’s car, beating his head with motorbike helmets, and slamming his fingers in the car door.

Teuk La’ak II commune police chief Ton Ravy said Sareth’s car was stopped due to a mechanical failure, but Sokunthea and witnesses say he collided with another car.

“After the beating, we rushed to help him,” Ravy said. “We are investigating and cannot reveal the perpetrators yet.”

A doctor at Hong Hak clinic, where Sareth was first taken, said Sareth was in a “very serious condition, because people used rocks to hit him in the face”.

The doctor, who declined to give his name, said Sareth was transported from his clinic to Calmette Hospital before his family decided to take him to Vietnam.

Has it been confirmed at all how bad the first accident that started all this was? I mean not that there's ever any good reason to try and murder somebody with bricks to the head like savages over a traffic accident but by the sounds of it the first incident wasn't major was it?. Sure he should have stopped but damn it's stories like this that will just encourage/scare more people to run over minor incidents.

There’s another video and photos here:

It’s completely seems like one moto chased and followed and attacked him, and then others just joined in.
