Who gives civil defense the right to arrest people?

The recent incident of ward orderly beating people until they fainted made public opinion extremely upset.

According to regulations, civil defense only has the right to arrest, take away weapons and escort criminals caught red-handed, those who are wanted, or those who have escaped prison sentences to the ward police headquarters in accordance with the law.

So why do they have the right to arrest a street vendor, even when they commit an administrative violation, specifically selling on the sidewalk?

The street vendor was strangled and beaten by orderly of Ward 25, Binh Thanh District until he fainted.

A while ago, while I was riding a motorbike in Hanoi, two people wearing civil defense uniforms jumped out, blocked the vehicle and took it to the sidewalk for processing.

Knowing that I was at fault, I refused to give my vehicle documents and made it clear that the civil defense force did not have the right to stop the violator’s vehicle.

For a person to obey the law, he first needs to understand the law.

The second problem is the civic awareness of the civil defense force, this is a very vague concept.

Giving power to people who are ignorant and have poor ethics is extremely dangerous.

Power needs to be given to people with good ethics or there must be a strong enough monitoring mechanism so that power is not distorted.

If a person who is not well educated and has no morals is given a baton and wears civil defense clothes, then of course they think they are very big and can do whatever they want.

Civil defense is the force that directly comes into contact with the people. If a conflict occurs, they are the ones most likely to break the law.

Reality shows a huge contradiction between the qualifications and the power and responsibility of civil defense.

To protect and preserve peace for people to safely do business, live and work according to the law, there needs to be a regular force, which is the police.

In my opinion, the role of civil defense should be considered as soon as possible.
