False start offenders learn the hard way that getting caught is not worth the reward. Saddeningly, a criminal would rather spend his or her life breaking the law than doing something productive with it. The epidemic level of crime in Mzansi has prompted an increase in the demand for private protection services.
We have learned that a security guard in the Berea neighborhood of Johannesburg shot and killed a male suspect on Joe Slovo Road. Authorities believe the victim terrorized pedestrians and drivers in the area before his death. The dead man was holding a revolver and his face was up on the ground.

"A security guard fatally shoots a criminal on Joe Slovo Road in Berea, JHB. Apparently, he has been causing great fear among the local populace and motorists "results indicate.
When news of the tragedy spread over social media, individuals online reacted. Several witnesses thanked the security guard for his efforts to restrain the attacker.
After terrorizing an entire community, the perpetrator realized his acts were pointless. It's because of the criminal gangs that live there and spread terror and incite bloodshed. That this issue has persisted for so long is frustrating, but perhaps a long-term solution is within reach.
