Univer­sity violence

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

The se­cu­rity guard who was at­tacked by stu­dents more than likely had to pay for his own ed­u­ca­tion, do­ing an ab­so­lutely thank­less job, long hours and work­ing crazy shifts; likely un­able to af­ford the ran­dom pizza, jol-nights and brand-name cloth­ing so many stu­dents seem to have no prob­lem af­ford­ing. – Deb­bie Mortin­son

When se­cu­rity goes bal­lis­tic on the next stu­dent protest, the stu­dents bet­ter not cry, they brought it on them­selves. – Dave Coet­zee

That poor man. I am so sorry this hap­pened to you. I hope and pray for jus­tice for you. You were only do­ing your job. Earn­ing an hon­est liv­ing. Not fair. This is mon­strous, crim­i­nal mur­der­ous be­hav­iour. Burn­ing and break­ing is one thing and com­pletely un­ac­cept­able, but this is a whole dif­fer­ent ball­game and still it is tol­er­ated… Why? A life means noth­ing these days and law-abid­ing work­ing cit­i­zens even less. – Tanjé Viljoen Some­one said what­ever you do, don’t lose pub­lic sym­pa­thy for your cam­paign to suc­ceed but then… oooops. – Sikum­buzo Moyo

The po­lice can open fire, if you be­have like thugs then you de­serve what’s com­ing to you. I’m so over these stu­dent protests… noth­ing in life is free. – Zelda van Aswe­gen

There is free ed­u­ca­tion in jail. Where vi­o­lent stu­dents be­long. – Daniel Marsh

They are not “stu­dents”. Stu­dents study. These are crim­i­nals! – Fran­cois Scholtz
