Here is a very amusing, yet heart inspiring, story from the VietnamNet Bridge newsite about a Vietnamese school teacher who fought over 40 criminals, thieves, robbers, etc., in Vietnam. In one instance, she even fought and tied up 3 robbers who stopped her bus while the 22 males on the bus looked on.
Granted, she is not an ordinary school teacher. She has practived martial arts since a child for 27 years, an amaing feat.
Unfortunately, tackling criminals is actually not the smartest thing to do in Vietnam. Just a couple months ago in the Tan Binh District, not far from my house, two men confronted a would be thief. The thief came back to one of the men’s home and put the guy in the hospital.
Still, Ms. Nguyen Thi Loan should be give a lot of praises in trying to fight crime.
