Theft robbery

Watch: People steal from a car involved in an accident in the Joburg CBD

Have people now lost their Ubuntu? Since when has stealing at an accident scene been okay? 

That is the question many people were left asking after some opportunistic criminals decided to loot from a VW Polo that had been involved in an accident. 

Instead of assisting the driver of a car that was involved in a car accident in the Johannesburg Central Business District.

It is still not clear what caused the accident but media reports allege that the VW Polo collided with another vehicle at an intersection before skidding and turning over. 

Sensing danger, the other motorist involved in the accident drove off while the passengers of the VW Polo were left at their own mercy as they were bombarded by a crowd of people.

In the video, the looters can be seen wrestling for the victim's valuables and running away with them. 

This is indeed a sorry scene as ethics tell us that we are supposed to help those who are in need.

Instead of stealing their valuables they should have at least assisted them.
