How Many Reports Will There Be Before Another Person Dies In Thailand?

Alpha 6

GT-200 Molecular Detector

The Bangkok Post has two more articles showing the use of GT200 and Alpha 6. In one case, the GT200 was used after a bomb dog alerted on a suspicious motorcycle. THEN, The user of the GT200 pointed to the cycle as well. When they checked the cycle, no bomb was found. The user of the GT200 dowsing rod saw the dog alert on the cycle and thought it had explosives in it, so when he walked by, even without him realizing he was moving the rod, he tilted it in the direction of the motorcycle. He was not trying to point the rod, his brain knew the dog had alerted on the cycle and without him noticing, his hand tilted to the cycle.

In the second article, the police ALREADY were informed a truck containing a large amount of narcotics products would pass through the district. THEN the driver was found to be on drugs. The police found the cans of liquid, and determined they were chemicals used to make drugs. FINALLY, they used the GT200 and Alpha 6, both of which said the chemicals were related to drugs. This does nothing to prove the dowsing rods work. After the tip, the driver on drugs, the search finding hidden containers of liquid, a chemical test, why were the GT200 and Alpha 6 even needed?

PHUKET : There was a brief panic at the Asean forum yesterday after an attempt to defuse a suspected bomb near the meeting venue.

A motorcycle with a flat tyre drew attention because it was parked in the prohibited area near the Holiday Inn hotel where the North Korean representatives were staying, about 300 metres from the meeting venue.

A military team sent a sniffer dog to examine the bike and its reaction indicated there was something wrong.

The military then brought in a GT 200 detector robot to double-check and the result confirmed there was a restricted object inside. The motorcycle also had an access sticker for the meeting area.

The military decided to use a high-pressure water gun to destroy the vehicle's electrical circuit. The sound of the water blast was heard around the compound of the Laguna area and caused brief panic for some participants and organising staff.

"I would like to reiterate that we needed to follow precautionary measures based on the highest security level. There was no explosive substance found," said Lt Gen Kanit Sapitak, the 1st Army Region commander, who is responsible for security measures at the meeting.

"We think it may have been traces of urea, or it could have been traces of a substance used for fireworks."

Meanwhile, security authorities have starting returning to their barracks.

Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said the troop withdrawal began at midnight yesterday.

About 10,000 soldiers from the 4th Army and other forces including the Special Forces Unit based in Lop Buri were used to safeguard the meeting which began on Friday.

PHAYAO : Police have found a suspected precursor chemical for producing drugs hidden inside cans containing corn seed on a truck heading to a port in Chon Buri province.

The cargo was destined for export to Dubai, police said.

Phayao police had received a tip a truck carrying a large amount of a narcotic substance from Chiang Mai province would pass through Muang district.

At about 3.20am yesterday, officers led by provincial police chief Prasai Sangkhasap stopped a truck driven by Watchara Sisawai, 40, at a checkpoint in tambon Mae Ka in Muang district, a Phayao police source said.

Inside a container were 1,000 boxes containing cans of corn seed weighing about 21 tonnes.

The source said tests confirmed the driver had taken narcotics.

Tests were also conducted on liquid substances found inside the specially-designed cans. The results showed the liquid was likely to be a chemical precursor used for producing drugs.

Drug abuse charges have been laid against Mr Watchara and he has been taken into custody.

The police team is now tracking the source of the cans, which were to be trucked to a port in Chon Buri and shipped to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The source said labels on the corn seed cans showed they were the product of Progress Service and Repair Co and were transported from Chiang Mai's Chai Prakan district by OV International Import Export Co.

He said police scanned the cans with narcotic substance detection devices called GT200 and Alpha 6 before seizing those containing the suspected precursor chemical.

The cans would be sent to Bangkok for further laboratory examination, the source said.

Why Does Mexico Still Use GT200 Detectors?

User Dragunov on the forum posted these photos of Mexican police using GT-200 detector molecular for finding drugs and weapons. Please warn the government of Mexico to stop using these fraudulent detectors before more police and civilians are killed! Instead of looking at the people in the cars who might be drug runners ready to shoot him, this officer is made to watch a freely swinging radio antenna attached to a plastic box that detects nothing.

This newspaper says 300 were bought.

Latin American Herald Tribune - Mexico Finds Almost a Ton of Cocaine Inside Shark Carcasses
[By using worthless dowsing rods which should have zero credibility in court]

Shared via AddThis

The Latin American Herald Tribune reported a story about police in Mexico finding cocaine in frozen shark carcasses. When the shipment was inspected, it was first x-rayed, and "showed signs of irregularities." Then the GT-200 molecular detection dowsing rod was brought out and confirmed that the frozen shark bodies that had had their meat removed and replaced with an unknown powder, in one of the biggest drug smuggling areas in the world, just might have cocaine inside.

THE GT-200 DID NOT FIND THE COCAINE! The POLICE found the cocaine, using their training, experience, and the X-RAY machine showing the "irregularities."

The only thing the GT-200 can do is find the budget accounts of police and military units and suck them dry.

Mexico Finds Almost a Ton of Cocaine Inside Shark Carcasses
Caracas, Monday June 22,2009

MEXICO CITY – A shipment of 893 kilos (1,967 pounds) of cocaine was found hidden inside frozen shark carcasses in the southeastern Mexican port of Progreso, the Navy Secretariat said in a statement.

The drugs were found in a container being transported by the Marshall Islands-flagged Dover Strait vessel, which had departed from Costa Rica for this Gulf coast port, located in Yucatan state.

The secretariat said Wednesday that the seizure was made following a routine X-ray inspection of seven containers.

One of them showed signs of irregularities, prompting navy personnel to carry out a detailed inspection with the help of a GT-200 molecular detector and narcotics-sniffing dogs.

Upon opening one of the shark carcasses, the navy personnel found black plastic bags containing rectangular packages with cocaine inside, according to the secretariat, which did not indicate whether any arrests were made nor the intended destination of the drugs.

Experts say that, of the 650 tons of cocaine shipped each year from South America to the United States, some 400 tons are transported through Mexico and a large portion of that total remains in the Latin American country. EFE



Update: More news from Mexico, with police using completely worthless dowsing rods to search for drugs and weapons. The article above about the three police from Thailand shows the danger of this. Second, what about people who are convicted based on the "evidence" provided by a dowsing rod. No scientific test has ever shown dowsing to be able to detect anything: water, drugs, explosives, gold. Dowsing does not work.

Will The Death Of 3 Police Officers In Thailand Halt The Sale Of The GT-200 Molecular Detector?

If you support our efforts to warn police and military units about these frauds that are endangering their lives and ours, please consider linking to the site or using Digg or a similar service to help spread the message! -LL

Bravo to the Bangkok Post for warning the people of Thailand about the dangers of bogus explosive detection equipment! Thailand continues to be targeted by the salesmen of the GT-200, Alpha 6, and ADE651. NONE OF THESE DEVICES WORK! They seem to work when demonstrated, but it is an ILLUSION. The person holding the rod correctly guesses where the item is hidden, while the rod does not detect anything.

When Faulty Technology can Cost Police Lives
By: Abdulloh Benjakat

A number of technology-based security measures has been introduced in the strife-torn deep South to tackle militancy and aid police investigations.

But several incidents have proved that authorities cannot absolutely trust the technology, which could lead to misunderstandings among local residents.

Bomb detectors and surveillance cameras are among the tools used to give security authorities an edge in their struggle to restore peace and order.

Known as GT 200, the remote substance detection device is popular among international security forces.

There are more than 100 of them in the South where explosives have now become the insurgents' weapon of choice.

The 700,000 baht GT 200 not only prevents explosions, but can track down bombers by detecting traces of explosives on their clothes.

However, the device has given wrong readings on several occasions and even failed to detect explosive materials, resulting in the loss of life.

Three members of a border patrol police unit were killed in a blast while they were inspecting a suspected bomb planted on a road in Panare district. The GT 200 they were using apparently could not detect traces of explosives.

In another blast in Muang district, security forces narrowly escaped death when a bomb exploded while they were investigating the murder of three officials.

Using a GT 200, security forces scouted the scene of the shooting five times and declared it clear of bombs.

Just as forensic officials began pulling out their tool kits, a bomb went off. It was a sheer luck that no one was hurt.

The deployment of GT 200s has also led to intense stand-offs between security forces and villagers.

Following an ambush in Ban Pakageenor in Nong Chik district in Pattani, security forces sealed off a ponoh school and lined up students for examination for traces of explosives.

The devices readings suggested three of them had traces of explosives on them. The three were detained for questioning only to be released because a conventional investigation could not find evidence to link them with the ambush.

However, their families and neighbours were angered by the incident.

In Yaring district, three men were detained for questioning over a bomb blast after the explosives scanner suggested traces of explosives on them.

An inquiry coupled with witness questioning cleared them of any involvement. They just happened to pass by the blast scene when police were investigating the site.

Similar erroneous readings caused pandemonium at Pattani Hospital.

According to the GT 200, a bomb was inside a briefcase that had been left unattended. But when a bomb disposal squad arrived, their GT 200 found nothing. The briefcase was then opened and found to contain documents and a clock. The owner had left his belongings as he rushed for a kidney dialysis appointment.

In addition, several thousand surveillance cameras which have been installed across the violence-torn region have never become operational.

The equipment procurement was approved under a budget of 972 million baht by the interim government of Surayud Chulanont.

The battle against insurgent attacks in the troubled region is not just about having technology-based security measures. It is also about putting them to good use - otherwise any attempts to solve the problems will be perceived as perfunctory.

More about dowsing fraud scams in Thailand as discussed on the PANTIP.COM forum. Thank you to everyone posting good information to prevent the continuation of the fraudulent selling of these dowsing rods!
