The scared sanctity of Thailand's Buddhist temples and monkhood have been exploited from time to time by criminals and other unsavoury characters. By becoming a monk, a criminal avoids prosecution from the authority, at least until he leaves the monkhood. Apparently in the earlier days when Thailand had a national military conscription programme, some would avoid the harsh army life by becoming a monk for the period they were eligible for conscription.
One doesn' have to be a lifelong monk, and in this we see young boys sometimes taking up the wearing of the saffron robe for a short period of, say, 30 days or three months (particularly during long school holidays), to bring blessings upon their families.
But this Shaolin-like behaviour is ridiculous, bringing disrepute to the Sangha.
