Why is South African crime so violent?
Mazaan Kruger, 1, and her loving carer Francina Sekhu were brutally assaulted by an armed gang on Thursday – and the Afrikaans baby was so badly battered that her skull was crushed and she fell into a coma at once. She had to be resuscitated three times enroute to hospital. The baby girl and her loving carer now are fighting for their lives… only a laptop and a modem were stolen: all the other valuables were left untouched
Was this really just another ‘ordinary crime’? Or was this a hate-crime targetting an Afrikaans baby and her carer by black racists who stole very little of value – but were targetting the child deliberately?
The International Campaign to End Genocide lists South Africa's 'Boers and Refugees' as being at risk of "Genocide Politicide or Mass Atrocities at the hands of Black Racists' according to their "Countries at Risk 2010" ...and Boers have been listed as being at risk of genocide ever since 2002... http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/04/genocide-watch-2010-boers-refugees-at.html
The police however describes this genocidal gang-assault against a white baby and her (very defensive) carer, who’d travelled with the family to the small Robindale, Randburg home (left picture from Beeld April 22 2010) from the Free State about a year ago, as just another ordinary crime, an ‘armed robbery’.
The Krugers arrived about a year ago from the Free State with their carer – and moved into a home which had already been burgled twice, causing the previous occupant to move because it was just too unsafe, said a neighbour.
Erna van Wyk of Rapport newspaper in Johannesburg firstname.lastname@example.org also writes that South Africans ‘have reacted with horror to the brutal attack on the baby girl. She’d only celebrated her first birthday two days earlier – read entire story on Rapport: http://www.rapport.co.za/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Baba-se-aanranding-skok-die-hele-land-20100424
Violence-report ignored by ANC-regime
David Bruce, senior researcher at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, says meanwhile their report – which tried to examine the reasons for the out-of-control violence which is spreading across South Africa, is ‘gathering dust at the government. “Our last attempt to draw the government’s attention to our reports failed in March this year when the portfolio committee cancelled a discussion about it. Instead they discussed the new ranking systems for the SAPS – rather than discuss a report which explains why the most atrocious and violent forms of violence often form part of the South African crime pattern.
*Hopefully the portfolio-committee will now pay attention to our report in September.’
