% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents. has this photo and caption of Italian photojournalist Fabio Polenghi:

While the red shirts espouse a non-violent transformation of Thailand’s political establishment there is at least one group associated with them that is willing to use violence to achieve their ends: the black shirts. The Thai Army would naturally be suspicious of anyone in a black shirt. This is why rule #2 from Andrew Marshall’s Bangkok Safety Tips is: “Wear light clothes, e.g. white top, light brown trousers. Avoid wearing black which is intimidating.” To be a bit more direct, don’t dress in a way that would lead one side in a conflict to see you as a nefarious assassin. It’s possible that Fabio was wearing body armor or some other outer layer (like many other journalists); however, the camera bag still strapped on him suggests otherwise.

Rest in peace, Fabio.

    One Day at a Time

    You lived your life one day at a time.
    The words you shared were always kind.
    You loved us all with your whole heart.
    It saddens us to be apart, and forever we
    hold you in our hearts
    Today you stand in God’s bright light.
    Watching over us day and night.
    In our hearts you will remain
    Until the day we meet again…
    Forever Your love will live on in our hearts
    and the hearts of those you touched.
    We are so grateful to God for blessing our lives with
    the beautiful gift of you.
    We miss you guardian angel,
    more than you can imagine.
    Michelle Mans
