6. The Thai Royal Family are revered by Thais and the laws of
lese majesty are well known by locals and ex-pats alike.

I think there is a good case for retaining the Thai Royals as they are like the glue that hold the country together. The King is highly regarded and has in the past signaled to the army and police to lay off during protests. I think the alternative is another general led dictatorship.

On the plus side this man will probably have his sentence quietly commuted or receive a reprieve from the King. That's what usually happens.
