Chechen law enforcers publicly reprimand driver for violation committed two years ago

According to a video posted on Instagram, a resident of the Kurchaloi District was reprimanded at a police station for careless driving in 2018. Social network users were surprised that the law enforcement bodies were interested in highlighting the violation committed two years ago.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Chechen law enforcers regularly reprimand local residents in public, including for violating traffic rules.

"An offender, who posted on social networks photos and videos of traffic violations, was invited to the police station. His post creates a negative example for other citizens," says an explanation under the video posted on Instagram.

The social network users expressed their sympathy for the young man.

"It is wrong to hold a person responsible for a video shot two years ago. He might repent. Perhaps, he is not doing anything like that now," wrote user ewa8008.

Residents of Chechnya also criticized the law enforcers' actions. "Our law enforcers and officials just like to condemn people, make them apologize, and expose them to public scorn," Adlan noted.

"Such 'educational conversations' in public can only irritate and cause laughter, because they demonstrate the level of the professional training of our so-called law enforcers," local resident Rosa expressed her opinion.
