Cape Town - The Cops arrested a dead man, threw him in a van and gave him a R1000 fine for not following instructions he was given. 


A 55 year old man who is mute was beaten and dragged by police officers in front of his 12 year old grandchild and neighbors. The incident took place on Tuesday in their garden in Shepherd Court in Lavender Hill. The police pulled up at their home around 6 pm and started searching everyone and since the man could not talk, he made a sign language to his neighbor asking what is it that is going on. 


The police started to be violent towards him and asked him why he was not obeying any of their instructions at all. They started to kick and push hin around and he was not able to do a thing. Some people were trying to assist him but the only thing he did was just to raise his hand. They asked him where his mask was, but they failed to notice that it fell off when they were beating him. 


His neighbor Faieka Gasant tried to explain to the officers that the man could not speak as he was mute, and that all he wanted to know was, what was going on and why they were searching him. The officers did not want to listen when they were told that he cannot hear them and that a sign language interpreter was needed. 



Quinton says during the drive to the Steenberg Police Station, while he was in the back of the van, an officer pointed a gun at him. They opened the van and pointed a gun at him for no reason. He could not read their lips because they wore masks. They then gave him the notice to appear in Wynberg court. He was left traumatised by the incident: The police stepped on his tomatoes in the garden. He explained that he has never experienced such horrific treatment from the police and it is bad. 


Police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut confirmed the arrest: it was confirmed that a 56-year-old male was arrested in Shepherd Way, Lavender Hill, for the contravention of the Disaster Management Regulations on 26 January at about 6.50pm. He was released on an admission of guilt fine.”


The man is set to appear in court on the 4th of March. He lost his job when the lockdown began and now because he is failing to pay the fine, he is expected to go to court and bring witnesses.
