Public concern is mounting over the service provided by the large number of security companies springing up in Ho Chi Minh City.
On July 30, a 60- year-old Vietnamese-Dutchman was beaten, tasered and stripped of his pants by eight private security guards at Minh Duc Restaurant in District 1.
Local agencies only started tightening their control of security companies after the incident happened. If nothing had happened, I wonder whether and when they would have taken action. I hope the agencies in charge of protecting people's security and lives function properly right from the start.

I felt so angry after reading the news. Local agencies should conclude their investigation soon and impose proper punishments on the involved parties. Don't let one rotten apple spoil the barrel and tarnish our country's image. I, along with many others, am waiting to see how agencies handle the case.

It's time agencies tightened control of security companies. There are many shortcomings including the uniforms that lead people to mistake the guards for police officers. Meanwhile, the guards abuse devices to arrest, beat, examine or even kill people.
