Theft robbery

Good Job | Another robbery gone wrong in broad daylight

More and more dangerous robbers keep getting incarcerated day by day. This can only be wonderful news to South Africans if these suspects get life imprisonment. There has to be law and order in SA and all the criminals especially robbers have to be forced to obey the laws by harshly punishing them for their wrongdoings.

Harsher punishments, such as longer prison sentences, can help prevent crime and may actually have the positive effect in SA. Criminals have to know that imprisonment hinders the possibility of people making reparation, paying off debt, and increases the likelihood of homelessness, and in some cases can break up contact with families.

People lose a lot because of crime and some still continue losing what is valuable to them when perpetrators are not brought to book.

In Palm Ridge, 5 suspects robbed a business and fled the scene in a white Nissan Almera. Gauteng highway patrol officers soon intervened and chased the suspects. Unfortunately, the suspect driver of the Nissan Almera lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a wall.

Social media users are saying the patrollers should have just fatally shot all the robbers for they will be out on bail soon. Of course, this always happens. Ruthless criminals get caught but in most cases, the justice system fails the people. Guilty people deserve to be punished in proportion to the severity of their crime.

How business robberies can be prevented :

• Do not release personal information to strangers.

• Install robbery alarms as this is a strong deterrent.

• Have at least 2 employees open and close the business.

• Keep purses and personal valuables locked in desks and lockers.

• Don’t keep large lmounts of cash around.

• Invest in proper lighting and visibility.

Experiencing a robbery is something that can be incredibly difficult for businesses to recover from - not just financially, but psychologically and emotionally as well. It’s also important to recognize and be ready for the possible emotional trauma that the victim, and anyone else present at the time of the robbery, may endure.
