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.

Belinda van Ee­den

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

Monique Meeky Young

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.

Aletta Bezuiden­hout

At least he will think be­fore do­ing crime again - if he’s learnt out of this.
