Crime is a very serious issue in South Africa, many South Africans find their lives in danger as criminals run free and are sometimes even let out of bails by our law enforcement. However it seems that some people have already had enough of this and are taking the law into their own hands. Here's what happened and what it means for South Africans.
The Assassination :
A Foreign man was killed earlier today after he was let out on bail by our law enforcement. The man is a Pakistani national who has been linked to kidnappings. In a simple Assassination, the murderer walked up to him and shot him in the head.
This is just one of many Assassinations that have been taking place recently. However this one is different a the man who was killed was not an innocent civilian, but instead a possible criminal. Here's what I think this means for South Africans.
The implications of this situation :
It's been clear that for a while now South Africans have been losing their faith in the police. I believe that as more crimes take place, people are being pushed to the edge of what they can take and this may be a sign of them fighting back.
While I don't agree with this person's method, I can at least sympathize with his feelings of wanting criminals off the streets. Unfortunately I believe that this may start happening more and more and if the Government wants this type of incidents to stop, they need to start fixing the police force. Our president needs to take action to help make the police force more effective so that ordinary citizens don't have to take the law into their own hands.
What do you think of these observations, tell me in the comments section and follow for more news as it happens.
