Destitution in the realm of smiles

Bangkok built on the poor, their broken backs, scorched by the sun, cracked lips and sad eyes that no longer offer tears.

The homeless man in this video was beaten when he was asleep at the roadside. He was met with verbal abuse, before being forced to leave. As he walks away, the man (in blue) hits him with a parting gift. So much for the land of smiles and the Thai reputation of being kind.
