Behind the Vuvuzelas 2

From Dina in SA

The newspapers say that crime is less during the world cup, but far away from the headlines things are somewhat different

1. Shots fired at holiday makers from Jhb in a caravan park, Gwala-gwala nearSt. Lucia nature reserve.
- Willie Maartens (40) from Roodepoort with his extended family reports shots fired at 3 caravans and tents, and robbed at gunpoint. Bullets passed right through the caravans, etc
2. Since a lot of attention has turned to the Farm Attacks, it seems killing the aged in their homes is the way to go, as this is still going on every week!
A 72 year old man from Witrivier is in a serious condition in hospital after being attacked with a byl in his house. He is Mr. Charles Baty, a bagpipe player in die Stevenson Hamilton Pipe Band, a well known Scottish orchestra in the Lowveld. He was found in a pool of blood by a visitor. He was last seen the day before at church. His kids immigrated to the USA. Nothing was stolen.
Johannesburg - Members of the police force have to choose whether they want to be heroes or gangsters.

This was what the national head of police, General Bheki Cele, said on Monday at the military funeral of Sergeant Gert du Toit, 34, in Johannesburg.

Du Toit, a member of the K9 unit (the former dog unit) in Johannesburg, was shot dead by cash-in-transit robbers in Protea South, Soweto, last Saturday.

Cele told his family that they could be proud of him.

"You can walk proudly out of this church. He died for what he believed in."
Cele said he was worried about police members who were "becoming rotten themselves".

"We have to guard against being different people by day and by night."

He referred to the R5 assault rifles that were found on the crime scene.

"There is only one organisation that uses these weapons and that is the SA police force."
