Heartbreaking. Look at what SAPS officer did to a lady who went to report a crime at a station. Vid

It is heartbreaking to realize that people are not getting the treatment that they should be getting when visiting the nearby police stations. The duty of the police is to serve the people of South Africa with passion and respect. No one should feel like an odd one, or feel left out, in this country. Everyone has to exercise their rights, in the country and with the government they have elected to put it in power. 

The police brutality continues. This video shows a police man at Tembisa police station, who slapped a woman who is alleged to have come to the station to report a crime. This is below standard, and people are furious. There are two sides of the story, and people should not only focus on attacking this police officer, without knowing what might have really happened.See the source image

This can also be seen as another form of gender based violence. Despite the profession you hold, or being a law enforcement officer, no man should raise his hand and hit a woman, more specifically in countries such as South Africa. This SAPS member had the courage to not speak to this lady as we witness in this video, and decided to unleash a hand. There is no justification to this. Female SAPS members should only focus on dealing with matters involving women, since they know how to treat them.See the source image

Tembisa police station is not different from Tembisa hospital. People complain about them in the comment section. It shows that this lady is not the first one to be treated unfairly by the SAPS members. Bheki Cele needs to intervene and guide his fellow people. Poor management and lack of leadership are the reasons why people are being treated like this, in public or government facilities. Justice for this woman need to be served.
