You gotta love the ol’ Vietnamese state organ, Thanh Nien. It’s not so much the story as the way they tell ’em,
"At 1am, the officers laid
siege to the disco at No 10 Trang Thi Street in downtown Hanoi and
found over a thousand people, mostly from 17 to 24 years old, dancing
frenziedly to strong music."
OK drugs were allegedly involved in the raid which involved over 500 armed police and resulted in over 1,000 folk getting fingered by the cops, but I do find it hard to stifle a smile at the implication that "dancing frenziedly to strong music" is somehow wrong or at least indicative of debauched behaviour of the big Vietnamese book of social evils kind. Although, in all fairness, going by the frenzied Vietnamese dancing to strong music I’ve witnessed over the years I can see why social evil may be the most apt description.
