Vigilantes torture crime suspects
At least three suspected criminals have been attacked by a vigilante group in the Mtuba area
This is very brutal for me, but I understand why it’s done. If we had laws and a good police force then this wouldn’t be necessary.
And people work so hard, earn nothing to have something and there are people like him who come and take. You report to the police they act as if crime is the norm. People are sick and tired.
Beating up criminals does no one any good. All this means is that they are admitted to hospital for their injuries with free food, clothes, shelter etc, and if those injuries are severe enough they qualify for social grants which come from taxpayers. In the end who is really winning here?
So he will not be hasty to walk and do crime again. In some countries they used to cut your hand that you need to eat with, straight off.

Maybe if the justice system starts doing their job people would not take the law into their own hands.

Phoning police nowadays gets a person nowhere, that is why communities take the law into their own hands. If we knew we could rely on our SAPS this wouldn’t happen.
At least he will think before doing crime again - if he’s learnt out of this.
