The police are obsolete
SIZWEKAZI JEKWA prompts me to write, as she’s again touched on my current hobbyhorse. She speaks of how we should make sure we don’t assist the criminals in their quest for ultimate control of the economy. Just the other day a newspaper headline in Durban intimated that it was the public who caused the Durban police to be corrupt.
If the public must police the police, why do we need them? I suggest we don’t anymore. They have become obsolete.
I saw a Sunday evening TV programme where a Moral Regeneration lady was telling us how they’re rewriting the book on how we should determine morals in this country. Since they refuse all standards that could form the basis for any true morals, I suggest that when they’re finished, the norm for our beautiful country will be “Do as you please” – since they said they certainly don’t want to be dictated to.
So we definitely won’t need the police. Except, of course, for speed traps – which, as you know, is the most important task of any police force. Not menial tasks, such as point duty, that may assist the public... Oh yes, I forgot: it’s do as you please. This group would have us believe that all parents are criminals and unable to uphold standards even in their own homes. Morals and standards are created through a deep-seated belief in something much higher than governments. Without something higher there will never be a uniformly accepted moral standard.
Crime will never stop unless there’s a national desire to create a moral standard and that standard needs to start at home, be reinforced at school and policed within society. Criminals can’t police criminals. Currently, we’re slipping into anarchy, as only those few who still have a moral standard are prepared to accept the law.
Over the top? Let’s wait and see.
