Well trained, armed patriots for hire?

‎Thai Navy secretary Rear Adm Kan Dee-ubon confirmed PO1 Sompong and PO1 Preecha were members of the Naval Special Warfare Command, Royal Thai Fleet, but were currently assigned to assist with work at the Royal Thai Marine Task Force in the southern province of Narathiwat.

They were arrested by the Thai Royal Police while returning from Narathiwat. (a province in the Deep South)

The two members were part of Thai elite Navy squad “SEAL” ‎and admitted to being hired to provide “security” to PDRC leaders at the Lumpini rally site.

When the persons we place our hopes on to defend us against extreme threats ‎are the very ones who are working against us, then what future do we have? It is an unnerving thought that Navy cannot control some of their armed personnel, and prevent them from being private bodyguards (or hitmen?) for neo-fascists.
