Law enforcement and justice in South Africa continue to falter

What is it with South African law enforcement and justice, that they so much want to emulate the same in Zimbabwe?

I read a blog post about continued "jail raping" of white "offenders" that are thrown in holding cells together with hardened black criminals who then gang rape these white "offenders." It is absolutely sickening to see what is happening and how our own law enforcement people (aka police) could become such vile criminals themselves to allow this to continue in police holding cells.

Next, I read a news article at Independent-Online of a woman who thought that she could be hijacked, who ended up being beaten by a traffic officer in front of the police at a local police station! The sad thing is that this is not an isolated case. The problem with this scenario in South Africa is that many in the police see their job as a way to collect a salary. It is just another job! They don't have any honour in the execution of their duties! The problem with these thugs is that they think they are the law instead of upholding the law and protecting the citizens of this country.

Does the South African government know about these offenses happening under their noses? Or, should I rather ask, do they care? When considering the government's track record in fighting crime since the ANC took over in 1994, the answer is undoubtedly "NO!"

These thugs that are supposedly our police force, should be fired, and should be charged against every possible law that they broke during these events, from gross human rights violations to physical assault. But, will that happen? Dream on!

This government and their paid thugs are sowing to their own reward, and they WILL reap what they have sown! The question is, will they realize this before it is too late and standing before the Great Judge of heaven, Jesus Christ?
