Visser, George & Keulder, Zelda - attacked, Donkerhoek smallholding: son Zane 6 hides in car

Keulder Zelda attacked with partner George Visser while son 6 hides in car Nov282010

Pretoria – Six-year-old Zane Visser hid in his father's Land Rover after attackers had shot his father through the windscreen and then dragged his dad to their smallholding house at Donkerhoek, east of Pretoria.  After the three armed black male attackers assaulted George Visser and his partner Zelda Keulder with firearms, they also dragged the terrified boy from the vehicle.”They kept their firearms pointed at us… I started praying out loud," said Keulder, 36, on Sunday outside the Pretoria hospital where bullets were removed from Visser’s shoulder. “One black attacker told me that I could pray even louder because we wouldn't see tomorrow." Nothing was robbed. Police are not investigating attempted double-murder: only a ‘house robbery’. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Robbers-Pray-it-wont-help-20101129

A 61-year-old country club manager from Port Elizabeth was killed in an attempted hijacking, Eastern Cape police said on Tuesday. Walmer Country Club manager Jan Gerrit Hoekstra was on his way to the bank on Monday around 10am, when he was attacked on 9th Avenue in Walmer, said Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg. “A shot was fired by the suspect who tried to hijack his Opel Astra and he sped away. His car hit another motor vehicle slightly, he swerved to the side and hit a tree on the corner of 8th Avenue and Heugh Road. “The incident was first treated as an accident scene, until paramedics noticed that he had a gunshot wound in his upper body while they were treating him. He later died on the scene,” Janse van Rensburg said. She said nothing was taken from Hoekstra as his money and other valuables were found in the car. Police were investigating, said Janse van Rensburg. -http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/man-killed-in-attempted-hijacking-1.875715

Mrs Cornelia Kilian, 84, strangled to death, retirement home Huis Aristea, Queen Street, Durbanville Saturday Nov 20 2010 – NOTHING APPEARS ROBBED 

2010-11-21 Kobus Pretorius reports from Durbanville. An Eight-four-year old frail resident of a retirement home opposite Durbanville High School was strangled to death inside her bed on November 20 2010. A nurse found the body of Mrs Cornelia Kilian, 84, in House Aristea in Queen Street. “The nurse noticed that the burglar-bars were torn off a window,’ said sergeant Bernice  Laäs-Bezuidenhout. Her cottage was ‘overturned inside’ but it’s not clear whether anything was robbed. The murder must have taken place between Saturday 22:00 and Monday at noon. The frail old woman was last seen alive on Saturday-evening. She lived alone and is survived by two daughters. The SAPS brought in trauma-councillors to talk to the deeply upset residents – and they were also adviced that if they wanted to leave the home for a while and stay with their family and children for a while, they should do so, as it would help them come to terms with the murder of their friend, said manager of the complex Mr Willem Agenbag.  He said the home has excellent security and is monitored with closed-circuit TV 24/7 – however the cottages where Mrs Kilian was murdered were not included in the security system and they want to change that at once. The murder-weapon and the number of attackers are not yet known. http://www.dieburger.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Vrou-in-tehuis-vermoor-20101121

Chris Bronkhorst, 67, torture victim, Walkervilleville smallholding Sept 29 2010 - back in hospital with stroke, complications
Bronkhorst Chris disabled Walkerville man tortured melt plastic and sjambok Sept292010 4 blacks Nov 23 2010 Magda Cracknell writes on her Facebook page “White Genocide, did you Know? ‘--- “It is with great sadness that I want to ask you all to pray for the badly injured “crime” victim Mr Chris Bronkhorst. The 67-year-old partially-disabled Afrikaner pensioner was tortured with melting plastic and whipped repeatedly with a sjambok during a vicious daytime attack in his Walkerville smallholding home on September 29, 2010 by four young black males. The traumatic attack has caused a severe shock to his body and he has lost his zest for life. He has a permanent nurse looking after him physically but   emotionally he needs upliftment and it's very understandable, considering what this man had to endure. On 20 Nov 2010 he was taken back to the Intensive Care Unit with a stroke and complications. Mr Bronkhorst was severely tortured – a lot of the details were omitted from the press reports. His Wife Hester and sister in law Helena appreciates your support in prayer.http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Rowers-martel-en-slaan-verlamde-67-20101102

Afrikaans hero-schoolboy Riaan Vermeulen 16 who shot, injured home-invader Sept 19 2010 in Naudeeville, FS family now target of terror-gang, police guard home
Nov 24 2010 – NAUDEEVILLE, FREE STATE - Afrikaans schoolboy Riaan Vermeulen (16) saved the lives of his family when he overpowered a home-invader, got the attacker’s gun away  from him after his father was shot in both legs – and then shot and injured the attacker while they were grappling. The family also told police that the attackers must have drugged them somehow because the family had suddenly fallen asleep in front of the TV before they were attacked. Now, reports Beeld newspaper, the young man is being terrorised by the criminal fraternity. Marisa Phillips of Volksblad newspaper writes from Welkom that the youth’s mom Jackie, of Naudéville, said three more attempts were made to break into their home and people have been drawing red marks on a tree in front of their home to terrorise them.  The family is still in Bloemfontein however to be near the family patriarch, Riaan, who is in hospital for surgery after he was shot. A neighbour phoned Mrs Vermeulen to warn her that strange people had tried to get into the Vermeulen property on Saturday. ‘My neighbour’s husband yelled at those people to get out. The next morning they also saw the red cross scrawled on the tree and also that plastic bottles had been placed as field-writing markers atop our gate”. The security alarms were tripped thrice since the Sept 19 2010 incident. Security company officials have posted a guard inside their erf and the police are also watching the house. Mrs Vermeulen said her son was still undergoing trauma-counselling and because of all the stress, would be unable to complete his exams. “He is still very emotional but said if placed in the same situation he’d do it again.’ The home-invader (described as a ‘robber’ although nothing was robbed) who was shot and injured by the young man was found collapsed on a neighbouring property and has been in critical condition at the Bongani hospital since that day, under police guard.http://www.volksblad.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Inbrekers-teister-glo-jong-held-nadat-hy-gesin-red-20101121 http://www.volksblad.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Seun-16-skiet-inbreker-met-eie-wapen-nadat-hy-pa-wond-20101120

Two black-owned mining companies’  owners face criminal charges over dangerous pollution

Acid Mine Drainage from West Rand Mines Mariette Liefferink Hartbeespoortdam Mr Hendrik Mills, on behalf of the private Environmental Protection Association, has laid criminal charges against 2 mining companies at the Ermelo SAPS – one being Coal of Africa at its Mooiplaats mine outside Ermelo. The continued media reports on the degradation of the environment and pollution caused by industry and more specific, certain mining companies, caused the Association to lay criminal charges.  Government departments have shown their inability to effectively police the industry. Administrative actions against such companies do not have the necessary deterrent effect and despite criminal transgressions by some companies government still does not pursue criminal charges. Companies must realise that they are not above the law, the law applies equally to everyone. They may be able to afford to pay administrative fines but facing the possibility of going to jail, having the assets and profits of the company seized and its mining rights withdrawn may have the necessary deterrent effect. Aggrieved persons can contact the association for assistance at 0828079278. http://blogs.beeld.com/Elise_WatOpAarde/iets-op-engels

KILLER OF ROBIN McGREGOR, PUBLISHER/OWNER OF ‘WHO OWNS WHOM’ ON AUG 12 2008 – SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON

 

McGregor Robin, murdered publisher, trial murderers WestCapeHighCourt

killer Thomas gets 30 years in jail

Cape Times. November 23 2010 By A’Eysha Kassiem Judge Nathan Erasmus of the Cape High Court sentenced Thomas, the convicted murderer of Cape Town publisher Robin McGregor to a 30-year prison term.  He would be free after his 60th birthday. The popular publisher was murdered in 2008 in his Tulbagh home. His Mercedes-Benz and two safes were stolen. Judge Erasmus said: “Mr McGregor was killed in a brutal manner. He was stabbed with a knife multiple times and dragged across the floor in his corridor. The question is: ‘What kind of man does that?’ Especially with your background?” Judge Erasmus was referring to the fact that Thomas seemed to come from a “good home” and had also been able to study further and get a post-high school certificate. The murder had clearly shaken both the Tulbagh community and the Saron community, where Thomas was from. “It was not just because it was McGregor (who was killed), but because of the type of murder that was committed,” he said, referring to the brutality of the crime. “You are too young to understand where we come from as a society. “We are trying to build a nation and one of the biggest problems in terms of our democracy is crime. It undermines what we stand for,” said Judge Erasmus. Thomas claimed that his involvement in the murder was because he was “put under duress by members of the 28s gang” and said he was innocent. Judge Erasmus said it was necessary to underline the seriousness of the crime with the sentence. McGregor’s daughter, Elizabeth, said that nothing could bring her father back. “But I feel that the justice system has been good to us and we feel lucky,” she said, before bursting into tears. “I’m glad that it’s over.” aeysha.kassiem@inl.co.za - Cape Times http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/western-cape/mcgregor-s-killer-spared-life-1.875690

Pretoria regurgitated bus ticket scam by drivers?

 

PRETORIA TICKET SCAM RESELLING USED TICKETS

Nov 19 2010 - Gordon Schumway writes on the Facebook page of the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group (PRAAG) : "Got on Bus 310 on Saturday of the Pretoria bus service. Instead of one R10.- ticket the driver - a black woman - gave me two R5-tickets - one of which had already been used. I suspect that bus-drivers earn extra income in Pretoria by reselling used tickets. This is a scan of the two tickets.

African Field Writing:  Winning in Farm-Attacksin Afrikaans only - by retired field-tracking police expert Lukas Swart  - who teaches the secret language of African field-writing sign-posting…

Blacks in SA increasingly angry with their greedy elite - strikes hit SA again Retired SA police officer Lukas Swart ‘s book “Winning in farm-attacks’ (in Afrikaans only), explains the secret language of the African field-signs which are often placed around SA homes by criminal gangs while watching your place -  long before their hit-squads plan any attacks on your family. Often your home is watched for many weeks to analyse your movements before these attacks. The gang members communicate with African field-signs, which involve a large variety of colour-coded objects. Targetted victims however can prevent attacks if they know the secret language – but only if you learn to read and interpret them correctly: and know what to do when spotting them. Importantly, this book also teaches you to never remove these signs nor to go and study them up close – because the hit squad could be in the near vicinity,  hiding, watching your place, testing its defences – and then be able to kill you on the spot… The author, a retired SA police officer with extensive knowledge of the secret art of African field-writing, is often hired as a private forensic investigator. He writes that ‘many people are under the impression that as long as they can speak an African language, they would be able to understand enough to be forewarned against armed criminals planning to attack them.” But people should also learn this secret way in which Africans communicate with each other all across the continent…

Nigerian drug-gangs enslave Afrikaans kids

 ‘Our kids are turned into Nigerian sex-slaves…

November 27 2010 – BLOEMFONTEIN, Free State. Volksblad reader “Len” writes:   “About three weeks ago I turned at the corner of Haldon Road into Van Schalkwyk  – and suddenly saw a beautiful redheaded white girl, about 20 years old, being chased like cattle by a Nigerian man. ..

Farmer Jurie Louw beaten senseless, Krugersdorp: nothing robbed

Jurie Louw, 38,  assaulted, left in coma, farm Rietfontein, Kromdraai Nov 28 2010: assaulted with hatchet and knobkierie and left comatose: nothing robbed – SAPS only archived a ‘house robbery’ and are not investigating attempted murder http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Boer-erg-geslaan-sukkel-om-te-praat-na-aanval-20101128

------------------

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff  - KRUGERSDORP. Boer Julie Louw, 38, of the farm Rietfontein at Kromdraai near Krugersdorp, was discovered beaten comatose. A neighbour found the farmer next to his Toyoto Corolla’s opened doors and a flat tyre on the tar-road leading to his farm. He suffered ‘serious facial, leg and back injuries’ and was rushed to the local hospital, which appropriately enough was renamed after a communist ‘freedom fighter’ called Yusuf Dadoo. Doctors said the injuries show that he was assaulted by someone with a hatchet and another person with a knobkierie, a ‘traditional weapon’.

Warrant officer Dennis Jones believes that the Boer was attacked either late Friday evening or in the early-morning hours of Saturday November 28 2010. They confirmed that ‘an unknown number of men gained access to the Louw farmhouse.” They ‘could not say’ whether anything was robbed but they are not investigating attempted murder charges, only ‘armed robbery’. The farm is located near the Brookwood trout farm and the rural Kloofzicht Tourist Lodge. The police tried to interrogate the comatose farmer in hospital but unsurprisingly ‘were unable to communicate’ with him. And orse just as unsurprisingly no-one was arrested: the SAPS specialised farm-tracking units which could have followed their traces were disbanded during ex-pres Thabo Mbeki ‘s inept reign.

Afrikaners tortured, killed by SAPS

Afrikaner security-technician Riaan Petrus Velloen, 37, killed by SAPS in custody,  Florida police cells, Roodepoort S.Africa – nobody charged – police offers no ‘regrets’ nor ‘condolances’ to the grieving family…

----------------

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff of Beeld newspaper reports that 37-year-old Afrikaner security-camera technician Riaan Petrus Velloen was beaten up so brutally by the Florida police in Roodepoort that the healthy man died in the police cells within just hours. There were no charges against Velloen when he died in police custody, said his mother-in-law Mrs Ria Hogan, 50, grand-mother of his son Kevin Hogan, 15.

“Police claim he was drunk but he was not a drinker. We don’t know why he was arrested and there have been no formal charges lodged through the charge office,’ she said. She said her daughter received a phone call from Riaan’s sister – who informed him that he was beaten to death in the police cells. SAPS spokesman Lt.col. Lungelo Dlamini indeed confirmed that Velloendied while in police-custody and that a ‘murder-dossier was opened to investigate ‘the incident’. Hogan said the family have no idea where he was arrested, or why.

“It’s so heart-sore, because he was a kind, loving man who always tried to make you happy even if he had to put his own needs last. The police should be there to protect people – one cannot trust them any longer.’

His son Kevin was devastated about his father’s death. “He always listened to everything I ever told him and I will miss all the special things we did together. Velloen’s remains have not yet been released for burial because the investigation has not been completed. The SAPS ‘would not say whether any of the arresting officers would be criminally charged or prosecuted in an internal hearing”.

They also did not offer their condolances nor regrets to the family. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Man-dood-in-selle-na-polisie-glo-aanrand-20101128

TWO PICTURES ABOVE: June 9 2009 – deniseryan@mweb.co.za sent around an internet petition, demanding anvestigation into the deeply mysterious death of Kriel old-age pensioner James Brown in a cell of the local police station . The TV programme Third Degree, broadcast by ETV in South Africa, showed these pictures of the late Mr James Brown, a 09-year-old Afrikaner and also an Alzheimer’s sufferer,  who was arrested at the Shoprite supermarket in Kriel – for ‘taking a chocolate bar without paying for it’. Ryan writes: “The old man was assaulted,  beaten and sprayed with pepper spray by the police officers who arrested him without any probable course for their behavior towards him – the old man did not resist arrest and the police officers were never in any danger from him at any stage. This old man did not know he was doing anything wrong because he was an Alzheimer’s sufferer – his doctor said his physical health was good, but he did suffer from Alzheimer.  “After his arrest, his civil rights were also violated  because he had nobody to assist him and his right to a phone call was not presented to him otherwise he could have been assisted by a family member or attorney.  “He died within  four hours of custody at the Kriel police station. This is what he looked like after four hours in a police cell - alone . Relatives questioned the reason for the (clearly fresh) FATAL head wound to the back of his head because the footage on the CCTV which showed his arrival at the Shoprite in Kriel, proved that he ‘d had no injuries at all. “ http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2009/06/why-did-this-alzheimer-sufferer-die-in.html

SAPS TORTURED AFRIKANER FARM FAMILY MALHERBE with CATTLE-PRODS, PLASTIC-BAG CHOKING TORTURE IN POTGIETERSRUST, JAN 28 2010

Heavily armed men in police uniforms who showed up in police vehicles tortured an Afrikaner farm family in Mokopane/Potgietersrust on January 28 2010 - tied them up, covered their heads in plastic bags and shocked them with cattle-prods. Injured were Okkie Malherbe (63) wife Emmerentia (53), of the Olem farm on Doelen, and watched by their little granddaughter Kaycee, 5. Malherbe's son WD, 34 said the attack took about two hours. The family had opened the door to their torturers because “they thought they were police officers”. Investigations found later that the attack-gang had indeed been members of the SAPS after investigators checked the police-vehicles’ number plates. [Source: Polisielede roof, skok boer en sy gesin, Beeld, 2010-01-28. Beeld newspaper claimed they were ‘bogus cops’. URL: http://www.scribd.com/doc/26063669/

Deaths in SA prisons often due to torture by officials:

Nov 29 2010 – CAPE TOWN PARLIAMENT. The portfolio committees of correctional services and public works held a joint hearing about the ‘fruitless, wasteful expenditure on the building of new facilities” and “the torture of prison inmates at the hands of officials”.

In one such unnatural death, a number of officials were charged with culpable homicide when an inmate was killed during a mass assault on prisoners by officials, yet only one was found guilty. He was dismissed. Charges against the others were withdrawn. The MPs wanted to know why they had not been charged with murder, and were told that the police would be investigating the criminal charge against the dismissed official.

They also queried the inhumane treatment of inmates who ended up killing themselves. In one case, an inmate was locked in a cell that had no lights and, in another, an inmate who said he had been raped was found hanged in the shower area of the cell. There had been “a delay in transferring him to a rape centre, allegedly because there was no transport available”. The nurses who failed to examine the man were acquitted in a disciplinary hearing, and the officials who failed to arrange his transport to a rape centre were given a final warning. The MPs were unhappy with the lack of action against errant prison officials.

A number of extremely worrying trends have been found during an investigation into 55 unnatural deaths in prisons in 2009. The Civil Society Prison Reform Initiative said one of the "top concerns" was that despite guilty findings at discliplinary hearings,  not one correctional services official had been prosecuted in a criminal court in any of the unnatural death cases.

This was despite disciplinary internal enquiries finding them guilty of offences such as gross negligence and excessive use of force. "Of topmost concern is that in not one of the 55 cases has a single Department of Correctional Services (DCS) official been prosecuted yet," the Initiative said.

  • "It is rare that officials are dismissed following the death of a prisoner."

The CSPRI - a project of the Community Law Centre at the University of the Western Cape - said it had analysed a report by the Judicial Inspectorate which provided details of 55 "unnatural deaths" in 2009. "The CSPRI has analysed the data, discovering a number of extremely worrying trends."

Deceased often brutally assaulted by officials:

It said in many of the cases, the deceased had been brutally assaulted by officials with batons, electric shields and booted feet. The official had then failed to provide "adequate and timeous" medical attention.

Nothing more than murder

In one case, involving the death of a 59-year old prisoner at Ebongweni Maximum Security Prison in Kokstad, an independent pathologist had found "death consistent with smothering" or an obstruction of mouth and nose.

  • "The incident happened on August 9 2009 and according to the inspectorate, no action has been taken by the DCS nor has the investigation by the police resulted in anything," the CSPRI said.

The prisoner, known only by his initials 'RT'", must have died a horrible death - first severely beaten and then suffocated. This is nothing more than murder and all officials implicated should be prosecuted and punished accordingly."

55% were suicides…

Other trends apparent from the 2009 Judicial Report indicated that 55% of the deaths were suicides. In a significant proportion of these, the prisoner was a known as a suicide risk. Despite this, "The DCS failed to take effective measures to prevent the suicide," the CSPRI said.

  • "In nearly 65% of the 55 cases, the DCS had not taken any action against its officials although there is evidence indicating liability."

Investigations by the police in the deaths of prisoners seldom progressed to a stage where a docket was handed to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

"The CSPRI is of the view that when a person dies in state custody, the state is liable until the matter has been properly investigated by independent and competent authorities and the findings indicate the contrary.

"In meeting its obligations under the UN Convention against Torture, South Africa is obligated to investigate promptly wherever there are reasonable grounds to believe that an act of torture or ill treatment has been committed in any territory under its jurisdiction."

Poor, delayed and uncompleted investigations fostered a culture of impunity within the DCS, the CSPRI said. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Worrying-trends-in-prison-deaths-20101118

Afrikaans toddlers in armed attacks; Afrikaner dies in SAPS custody

Zane Visser, 6, hides in dad's landrover during vicious attack, Donkerhoek Pretoria Nov 28 2010

  • "Pray - you will not see tomorrow,' armed black attackers tell unarmed Afrikaans family...

2010-11-29 Six-year-old Zane Visser hid in his dad's Land Rover after armed black attackers had dragged his injured father George from the vehicle and dumped in their homestead in Donkerhoek near Pretoria.

  • This is the fourth attack against Afrikaner families in the Boschkop police district within a month, reports  Hilda Fourie.

Attacked were George Visser, his life-partner Zelda Keulder and little Zane, 6.The black attackers held the Afrikaners at gunpoint and screamed vicious racist abuse at them throughout their Saturday-night ordeal. Visser was shot in the neck through the windshield of his car just after he had fetched the little boy from a birthday party.After he was shot the dad grabbed his little boy and  told him to hide in the back of the vehicle."I started praying out loud.' said Ms Keulder, 36, speaking to the news media at the Pretoria hospital where her partner was operated on. "One of the attackers yelled that I had better pray louder because none of us will see tomorrow.' She was working inside the house at 9pm when she heard five shots fired in rapid succession. An armed black man ran into the front door, pistol-whipped her and threw her on the floor of the bedroom.Two black men then followed and dumped the injured Mr Visser next to his partner.The couple was brutally beaten, pistol-whipped."They told us we were not going to make it,' said Keulder. "I prayed and asked Dear Jesus to please help these attackers and to forgive them for what they were going to do to us.

‘ Where is the child? ‘

The attackers then asked them: ‘ where is the child' and went outside to drag the terrified little Zane from the vehicle.

  • The attackers were frightened off when a vehicle arrived at the homestead: it was Mr Visser's mom Leona, who lives just a few kilometres away from them and stopped by to fetch some pain-medication. This scared the attackers off. The family is convinced that they would have been murdered if it hadn't been for his mother's timely arrival. Nothing was robbed. Zane needed trauma-counselling for his ordeal. "I wish something can be done about this,' said Keulder. "We live in a society where everybody just wants to flee overseas. If only we can give everybody jobs...' http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Bid-maar-julle-gaan-nie-more-sien-nie-20101128

Antonella del Fabbro, (2) shot at while asleep between parents: Mooiplaats smallholding Nov 25 2010:

As only became known several days later, two-year-old Antonella Del Fabbro was also attacked at a Mooiplaats smallholding while she was asleep between her parents.
Armed attackers had fired at the sleeping family from outside their homestead and the parents were injured. When the first bullet hit dad Marco, 35, he grabbed the toddler girl from the bed and hid her in the hallway, telling her to stay put. He then returned to the bedroom while the shots were still being fired to help his wife Monya, 37. As he pulled her off the bed she was shot in a foot while he was shot another three times.

Eight spent bullet-cartridges were later found outside the bedroom window.
Del Fabbro told Beeld that they had just fallen asleep when they heard sounds at the window and the shooting started - just like that, from the outside.

"It is ludicrous to wake up because you are being shot at,' he said. When I realised we were under fire I grabbed the little one and put her in the hallway. As I grabbed my wife and pushed her into the hallway too, my wife was shot in the foot and I was shot in the back. By that time they had already fired bullets into my hip.” Their twelve-year-old daughter Anya woke up from the shots in her bedroom. Four armed black men then climbed through the couple's shattered bedroom window and ordered Del Fabbro at gunpoint to stand up and lie on the bed to be 'tied up'. He said he couldn't walk because bullets were fired into his legs and thigh. Another black man then walked into Anya's room where the two girls were cowering, pointed a gun at their mother and ordered her back to the main bedroom. The two girls were left behind weeping and terrified, alone in the room while the gang plundered the main bedroom and fled. "I would not wish this on my worst enemy,' said Del Fabbro. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Pa-4-keer-deur-ruit-geskiet-20101128

Afrikaner security-technician Riaan Petrus Velloen, 37, killed by SAPS in custody,  Florida police cells, Roodepoort S.Africa – nobody charged

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff reports that 37-year-old Afrikaner security-cameras technician Riaan Petrus Velloen was beaten up so brutally by the Florida police in Roodepoort that he died in the police cells. There were no charges against Velloen when he died in police custody, said his mother-in-law Mrs Ria Hogan, 50, the grand-mother of his son Kevin Hogan, 15. “Police claim he was drunk but he was not a drinker. We don’t know why he was arrested and there have been no formal charges lodged through the charge office,’ she said. She said her daughter received a phone call from Riaan’s sister – who informed him that he was beaten to death in the police cells. SAPS spokesman Lt.col. Lungelo Dlamini confirmed that he has died while in police-custody and that a ‘murder-dossier was opened to investigate ‘the incident’. Hogan said the family have no idea where he was arrested, or why. “It’s so heart-sore, because he was a kind, loving man who always tried to make you happy even if he had to put his own needs last. The police should be there to protect people – one cannot trust them any longer.’ His son Kevin was devastated about his father’s death. “He always listened to everything I ever told him and I will miss all the special things we did together. Velloen’s remains have not yet been released for burial because the investigation has not been completed. The SAPS ‘would not say whether any of the arresting officers would be criminally charged or prosecuted in an internal hearing…’

Afrikaners in South Africa are in a crucible of violence - US journalist:

November 28, 2010 US journalist Carol Forsloff writes:

"South Africa is in the crucible of violence, with daily clamors for help from individuals across the country, especially white minorities now a target of violence, the rest of the world has ignored.  On the pages for the United States Department of State, the list of countries underlined by America as having problems in human rights is lengthy.  These pages do not, however, include South Africa.

  Perhaps this is an example of being politically correct on racial matters, since to respond to the issue of black on white violence may have repercussions to the major power's messages on human rights as being specific to minorities of color as opposed to white groups.  

"The United Nations and international human rights organizations make declarations frequently about human rights problems in Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria and other African countries on matters related involving everything from child trafficking to drug abuse.  Again the criminal violations against white groups in South Africa are conspicuous by that absence.

"A short entry on Facebook today by a white South African journalist brings a plaintive statement of his not being able to tolerate the problems anymore.

"I just don't know what to do any more. We should move, but where to? I don't think I can take living here much longer. I haven't slept properly for three weeks."

" This is a voice that speaks of a hurt so deep and awful that many of the people of South Africa are fearful every day.  It is a fear addressed in social media, but the major countries of the world do not address, although the problems are severe. 

“Every day speaks of violence and deprivation’, Forsloff notes:
