(PLO)- The actions of thePolice officer of Vinh Chau town, Soc Trang province, when he aggressively attacked two juveniles who violated traffic, it was difficult to tolerate; The Ministry of Public Security demanded strict punishment.
When the pain of the sacrifices of the three fire protection policemen has not subsided, the society is shocked by the act of hitting juvenile traffic violators of some policemen of Vinh Chau town, Soc Trang province.
Public opinion was surprised and outraged at the images that were spread at a dizzying speed, without which, few people could have imagined that it would be handled by public officials. People wonder “when you hit with such heavy blows, where is your professional courage and heart”?
In life, amidst the chaos of difficulties and hardships, making a living with rice, clothes, rice, and money sometimes makes people “too angry to lose their wisdom”. If you are a human being, then the joy, anger, love, and stains are always around like a picture with a shadow. However, when putting on the shirt of the people’s police force and with professional courage, the sorrows and joys of life should be put aside to give way to the spirit of “service, tactics, justice and impartiality.” “.
That’s not to say that you don’t have the right to be angry, but don’t let that anger overwhelm your mind and heart, leading to unethical behavior, even breaking the law.

Through the images on the video, it can be guessed that these two children did not obey the traffic signal. However, where they are wrong, there are legal provisions to handle. Therefore, it is difficult to accept the fact that police soldiers beat me continuously and continuously, from both a social and legal perspective. It is difficult to defend the policemen even though yesterday they were dedicated to their profession to ensure the peace of the people.
One detail worth noting is that even I who was sitting in the back of the car were taken down by the brothers. This is intolerable!
From a legal perspective, specialized laws such as the Law on People’s Public Security, the Law on Management and Use of Weapons, Explosives and Support Tools, the Law on Handling of Administrative Violations, etc. did not allow the use of force in this case.
The legal documents all say that the use of force, tying, locking hands and feet, using weapons and supporting tools is only considered lawful when it is determined that it is necessary to control and destroy. neutralize hostile behavior.
When the opposing behavior no longer exists, the use of force is absolutely not allowed. Through the video, it can be seen that during 5 minutes from the start of the stop to the end, the two juveniles completely resigned and did not have any resistance to be able to think that they have committed the behavior. against.
From a social perspective, the fact that the upper leg and lower forearm for young people worthy of their children and grandchildren in a state of crouching, standing still and suffering the battle is very sad. Why don’t you put yourself in the position of your father, uncle, brother to control your anger? Try to imagine your children and grandchildren on the street being beaten by others using helmets with such heavy blows, do you feel heartache, pity or not?
Now, perhaps you are also tormenting and repenting for your violent behavior. However, your mistakes still need to be dealt with seriously.
If people make mistakes, they must be held accountable before the law; wrongful law enforcement officers must also bear corresponding responsibility before the law. This not only ensures deterrence but also has preventive meaning, in order to prevent similar unfortunate events in the future.
