Appalling Vietnamese Police Brutality Against Motorcycle Rider [Video]
text size: A- A+
While the absence of a helmet is an offense in most countries, we doubt that riding in shorts is. And even if it were so, a completely different course of action should have been taken. Instead of a fine or even apprehending the rider, the two officers tase him repeatedly, after having him cuffed.
However, this is only the introduction to the final lesson, most likely aimed to teach the motorist the dangers of riding without a helmet... by throwing the guy off the bike head first.
Well, we really doubt this is what the Vietnamese law requires in case a motorcyclist is spotted in traffic without wearing a helmet, and we sincerely hope these two idiots lose their badges and will hopefully face severe legal consequences.
As for the rest of the riders who plan to ride in Vietnam, you'd better wear your helmets, lest police officers like these test the strength of the road with your forehead.

You can?t have a democratic society without a democratic (and non-military) police. For more, follow my blog at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com and see my new book, ?Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off??

Having lived in Vietnam for a few years I can say the police are not known to be brutal and I found them to be very calm and fair. And they don't point guns at innocent people like some other countries I know.
