People have been so vocal about police brutality, but little or no one seems to be raising awareness on assault against police by the civilians.
The world is facing a new dimension of crime and people has used the excuse of police brutality to attack and assault police throughout the world and also here South Africa. Many South African cops had suffered assault from citizens who they are paid to protect and that's so wrong. We must give our cops the necessary support to do their job.
Many at times have we seen citizens assaulting police with reckless abandon around the world including here in South Africa. Police are instituted to protect us against crime and insecurity, so why people will attack the same group who are meant to protect them is mind bugling.
