Theft robbery

Law officers allegedly force disabled boys to drink patrol

It makes one’s heart to be heavy when the thought of what the world has turned into hits the brain. Black people have lost the roots of humanity, they have turned against each other with no fear or favor.

No officer of the law has the authority to take the law into their own hands. How does someone get the audacity to point a gun at children and compel them to drink gasoline?

Nonhlanhla Khoza, MEC for Social Development in KwaZulu-Natal, has condemned an incident in which two teenage boys were accused of stealing and allegedly forced to drink petrol by a Durban metro cop.

The teenagers, aged 13 and 16, who live in Savannah Park, were allegedly severely beaten by the officer who accused them of stealing from his home, according to Khoza.

The officer allegedly pointed his service pistol at the boys and forced them to admit to breaking into his home on Saturday before forcing them to drink gasoline. The boys involved in the incident are 13 and 16 years old and have special needs.

It is understood that this incident will be dealt with accordingly as investigations are currently underway.
