Gang members shoot down and disarm an officer in Tshwane

The level of aggressiveness that is being displayed by armed criminals in South Africa is something that should be addressed with immediate effect. The nation is being terrorised by dangerous thugs who seem to be the ones calling the shots. Some have even began labelling the country as a gangsters paradise as criminals are having everything their way.

In a report which was shared by Crime Air Network on Sunday the 26th of September 2021, a security officer found himself on the receiving end of an attack. It is widely believed that armed gang members were behind this attack. The victim was a security officer who was carrying out his lawful duties on the corner of Moss and Van Den Berg Road in Danville, Tshwane at the time of the fateful attack. The officer was left lying in a pool of blood in the middle of the road.

The gang members went on to disarm the security officer after they had shot him dead and stole the service firearm which he had. It is widely believed that the suspects intend to use this firearm to carry out other violent crimes. This means that the gang members now have an extra weapon which they will use to launch terror with on citizens.

Law enforcement agents were summoned to the scene and they began carrying out investigations. No arrests have been made and the members are seeking for assistance from members of the public.

What is saddening is that one more family will be missing their dad on the dinner table and more kids have been turned into orphans. Security officers are often attacked by thugs as they protect communities. Their job is a high risk low reward type of job and lives are lost in large numbers in their field.

The law in South Africa seems to favor criminals. Some have been advocating for the death penalty to be put in force.
