hey welcome to the channel it's saturday it's  about uh probably about 10 15 10 20 something   like that real nice day up here in chiang mai  it's a little bit cloudy and a little bit of wind   it's just really really nice the air is  real nice and clear today i thought i'd uh   i'd come up and walk around soi one and two on  the east side of the moat try to get a feel of   how many people are here versus what it was like  before and i got a story to tell you about a guy just just a strange story that uh it's  crazy but anyway we're right here at moon moon lane one and we're going to make a left here story i'm  going to tell you about today is a about a guy   an american by the name of uh well he  was using the name tyler smith and uh he entered the country from from uh cambodia  first he went to malaysia and then he came up   to cambodia and apparently from all i'm finding  out he tried to get some teaching jobs in cambodia   and uh stayed there for a while and  then he ended up he entered thailand   about the first part of  2016 as best i can tell and he was trying to find some teaching jobs  and he wound up in khan khan and he got   a job there teaching and he runs up on this uh  this woman that apparently she was in charge of   or had a business that was  locating jobs for teachers and she it's unclear whether she had a boyfriend  or a husband i couldn't figure out from the   article which one it was i'm i'm thinking it  was her husband and he was an australian guy   and they had a child together and apparently this guy tyler strikes up a relationship with her   and he keeps getting bounced around from  teaching job to teaching job because he   doesn't have any credentials you know he'll  get hired somewhere and then by the time they you know really need his credentials to uh to keep   him employed he can't produce  them and they they move on well she ends up taking off with him and uh they go  to bangkok first and he gets a job down there and it's unclear apparently it didn't last very long  in bangkok and he they borrowed a bunch of money   from her friends uh borrowed a truck and he  just this guy just destroyed the truck and   and dropped it off in front of the guy's house  and and just took off and they left bangkok i   want a lot a lot of money well the family of this  girl start getting a little bit concerned because   you know usually she you know it wasn't  odd it wasn't strange for her to take off   like that but she'd always call in and  you know let everybody know where she was   and in this particular instance you know  they hadn't heard from her for a while   and uh you know they start wondering what what's  the deal and they didn't like this guy because he   he kept coming up with different stories and uh  they posted some stuff on a forum it's a teaching   forum and well before you know it i mean all kinds  of people are adding stuff adding stuff on it   uh how they've run up in this guy in cambodia  and he was uh claimed to be a ex-military and   in witness protection i mean just a bunch of  bunch of crazy stories that you're hearing   and so they're worried about her  and the husband-slash-boyfriend uh you know he's on the internet  trying to find the guy and   uh posting and on the different  forums and teaching forums and   stuff if anybody knows this guy well it  turns out he's able to find out that uh   this tyler smith is not tyler smith he's  a guy by the name of uh jackson hall and   jackson is from alabama and back in 2014  jackson got arrested for molesting a child and he made bond on that now how he made it made a  thirty thousand dollar bond on on less than a   child i don't know you know that just seems crazy  to me you know usually when we did cases that   involved you know children being molested we did  our best to keep the guys in jail uh we'd go tooth   and nails to try to keep them keep them in custody  but he made a 30 000 bond and got out of jail   and sometime in 2000 this is in 2014 and he's  he's waiting to go to trial on his charges   and uh he exposes himself to a delivery a female  delivery driver and this is all in in a place   called coleman alabama which is kind of northeast  no well it's kind of the center of alabama   um just not too far south of tennessee i've been  through there before and worked a couple cases   over there as a matter of fact but uh anyway  they uh the delivery driver reports it and uh   they finally figure out that it's jackson that was  exposing himself to this delivery driver so they   take him to the grand jury and they get a grand  jury indictment on him and they go to pick him   up and he comes to the door and he sees it's the  sheriff's department picking him up and he's got   a gun in his hand he runs back inside the house  and they have a standoff there and finally they they uh they're able to talk him out of the  house and arrest him and sure enough june of 2015 he bonds out it's crazy you know they should  have they were in the process of revoking   his bond on the other charges but apparently  they they let him out i don't understand it   it just doesn't make sense to me you know somebody  that that's out on bond that commits another crime   normally the judge will not set a bond on the  second charge you know the guy is going to   stay his butt in jail which is  what should have happened here   and in the meantime more charges are coming up  against him for physical abuse on another child   apparently the child that he molested was  his girlfriend's five-year-old daughter   and to me you know less than a five-year-old kid you need you don't need to  be making bond bonding hello you don't need to be uh you don't need to be out  of jail you need to be under the jail this place   this looks pretty uh pretty busy here a lot of  cars here and stuff and people sitting out but anyway he makes he's able to make bond and gets out of jail well the tennessee river runs from runs down the  middle of tennessee and it runs down into alabama   around the north section north northern  end of alabama hello swatty cop   so some fishermen are out they're out fishing and  they find some clothes bloody clothes on you know   on the side of the river back and they  find jackson's wallet and so they called   the police and and uh it was an obvious attempt  a bad attempt to to uh to fake a death so he's trying to fake his his death there   to get the cops off his tail well it  it didn't really work and it turns out jackson had a friend by the name of tyler smith  and uh from the pictures that i saw tyler they   they look identic almost identical so uh  jackson he goes and gets a social security   card and tyler's name gets a driver's license  and applies for a passport and from alabama he uh he goes to chicago and he catches a flight  in chicago now let's take a right here   to canada and then from canada to  japan and then japan to malaysia   and somehow he gets from malaysia through  malaysia through cambodia and up to thailand   well when the guy finds this out he's going crazy  just going nuts you know he's he's worried about   the girl and the family is worried about the  girl as well she had a sister that was in uh   i believe it was either sweden or switzerland  she posted up on facebook and i remember reading   it how worried they were about their their uh  sister because she hadn't been heard from and   and uh now they're finding out this  guy's a you know a rapist that's uh jump bond in the united states so they're they're  posting all over facebook and stuff and and uh   finally he's he's showing up  they're they're seeing him   and uh somebody has contact with with her  and she's she basically tells him that she's   trying to uh trying to get away from trying  to find him a job so she can get away from him   and uh meantime the boyfriend  turns all this information over to   the u.s embassy that gets the  marshal service involved in it   and so they've got a major manhunt for this  guy in thailand and they finally figured out   that you know he definitely wasn't tyler uh tyler  smith he was he was jackson jackson hall who was on the escape list so he had left back they had left bangkok and  they had gone down to uh rayong and he had   taught in riyong for a while rayon and  from there apparently they went to samoa   and she was able to get away from him somehow in  samoa and uh went to the police and said where he   was and sure enough they uh they set up on  a pier down there in samui and he shows up   and they snatch him and it's not long after  that uh the u.s government's got him on a   plane coming back to the united states and  it's unclear there's a thing in there that   said that she was pregnant with his child and i  that's i've only found one article that mentioned   anything about that so i don't know if it was  true or not but uh he comes back to alabama and they prosecute him on  the identity theft charge which being that he got a social security card   it was actually a federal offense  and uh they let him plead to that and i think he got something like  four years he was released from   from federal custody in the middle of 2021 so  figuring he actually he got picked up october 22nd 2016 and they released him in the middle of 2021 so  it looks like he got about four or five years   and uh you know i'm thinking i'm trying to  find where they prosecuted him for the for   the sexual abuse charges and i can't find  anything on it i can't find where he was   arrested i can't find where they uh they booked  him into the uh alabama department of corrections   so the only thing that i can figure is  that the uh the sexual abuse charges   probably was either the witness didn't want  to testify or the or it was a shoddy case   and they chose to go federal with it which is  something that they'll do hello quite often taylor oh okay you make suits yes okay good price on suits huh this is my  suit yeah all right man take care now if you need a suit come here but uh  hello hello how you doing good i see you on   youtube you do yeah great thanks well he'd be on the youtube tonight but  uh i couldn't i couldn't understand it and   i tried to reach out to the ex-boyfriend i  found him on facebook but he never did answer me   and apparently he got custody of the child  and just left the country and her i don't know   no i'm okay i'm walking getting some exercise how  are you doing a lot of business a lot of people   no no no business huh it'll come take care but  uh wow that's a neat little gadget right there   i don't have the coordination for that i  think i'll cross the street and get on the   other side of the street but you know  th this guy was really kind of stupid   for coming to thailand anyway because if the  thai police get after you they're going to get   you eventually it may take them a little while  but they're gonna find you and they're gonna   they're gonna ship you out had he gone to ecuador  he might have been safe so all you guys that are   criminals wanting to come to thailand  don't come here go to go to ecuador   there's no uh there's no prisoner treaty  there and uh you might be able to hide   there real well but you're not gonna be  able to hide here and this guy was just well can we walk this way yeah we'll walk this way   because that's really the  way i wanted to go but uh it just uh when i read the story it was just  amazing that uh hello good how are you doing   good just walking around exercise one hour i'm okay i'm getting exercise if i ride  in there i'm going to get fat thank you though okay give me one of your cards  yeah you park here all the time   somewhere okay where you stay hang dong i live  in hang dong i live here well i'm not tourist   i'll put that up there if somebody wants a tuk-tuk  this lady will give you a ride okay okay thank you   but uh i worked you know i worked a few  cases like that and and it was always we   always did our best to keep the guys  locked up uh you know you heard a kid   you know it just uh i always worked extra  hard on those cases i didn't you know and i hate to say this but a lot of cops get  lazy and once they make the arrest and put the   person behind bars they forget about the case  and in those kinds of cases you know you need   to follow through with it you need to uh you  need to keep the guy in jail as long as you can   you don't take any any pleas you don't take  any agreements and and uh you know you get   the maximum jail time out of it because they're  they're not going to change you know i mean he's he's out on bond and he commits  another offense sexual offense and uh you know put them don't put them in the jail put  them under the jail that's that that has always   been my motto i have no uh i have no sympathy for  those people i have no no remorse for them they're the ones that i have dealt with  over the years of the walk this way   come around out on the other side the ones that  i have done dealt with over the years there's uh   see if i can get through i think maybe i  can't no maybe this doesn't take me through   it might let me keep going here now  this is going back into somebody's house it's not the way i wanted to go hello hello i got too much not enough hair yet next week but uh that was always my motto keep them in  jail for as long as you can and uh we had in   tennessee we had some of the best child abuse of  investigators or investigators and prosecutors   that that you could hope for and they felt the  same way keep them locked up because you know   it's i was always there is no rehabilitation  for somebody like that that molest the kid   it's just uh the only kind of  rehabilitation for them is uh putting them someplace where  they can't get near anybody i don't know you know i  checked the alabama usually usually if you're convicted of a sexual any  type of sexual crime you put on a sexual   uh registry and that's you know that's  pretty much nationwide and i checked alabama   this is a great place to have breakfast they really serve a good good breakfast hello  and if you can fit through those bars you get   it for free i'm way beyond that i'm  i'd at least have to pay full price but i didn't find him on  any of the sexual registries   and i looked but no doubt  if he got out of jail and the middle of last year he's  definitely on federal probation and they do a pretty good job of keeping track  of people it's it's not like state probation   where you pro like state probation  where you can get away with something   yeah top north guest house those guys uh those  probation officers are pretty tough on them but uh if anybody knows anything about him leave   it in the comments i'd i'd  be curious to hear about it i uh i have no use for people that that  prey on children none hello how you doing not a lot of activity back here today all in one but it's still early in the day i wanted to get out before  it got too hot or it rained   now i'm thinking i walk back through here one time yeah there's a little that  little alley runs around there it's a nice hotel right here amsterdam shop now we'll go  back out here and make a left the voyager hotel and bar  is opening soon there you go there's definitely not as many people  here as i saw in phuket phuket was   there were a lot of people walking around maybe they just haven't got up  to chiang mai yet i don't know but this area here is usually always busy now okay let's go this way   well we're
