Cops caught with their fingers in the till

26 October 2012, 11:44
Just as Jackie Selebe was caught with his "fingers in the till", this trend now continues.

A robbery in Midrand, where a family and friends of the young children that were present took place last week, has shed some light on the nefarious modus operandi of our police. Unbeknown to the robbers there were hidden camera's videoing the whole sting operation. The video, reportedly shows, that police vehicles, blocked the road leading to the home while it was being robbed. The robbers nonchalantly and brazenly walked into the home of the victims, as if they were unafraid of any consequences, because they thought there would be none. Sound familiar?

The SAP have removed the videos (evidence) and are submitting them for forensic evidence. I wonder whether they will be returned to the rightful owner.

I feel outraged by this. For how long are we going to tolerate a police force that is communicating with, co-operating with, and indeed collaborating, with criminals, many of whom we are paying for through our tax money. It seems to become evident that the fight against crime is a fight against our own police force, and the "handlers" who bribe and control them. Not all policemen are corrupt. They are just underpaid, and will live with the legacy of corruption as long as our government keeps appointing corrupt and inept commissioners. If the head is rotten the whole fish smells.

What was interesting for me was that this victim is a campaigner against the corruption in the banking industry. His computer was stolen; so much of the research and mail concerning this was also stolen. Years of dedicated research gone, and into the hands of the robbers (the SAP?), while the police were reportedly blocking the road to his home. Who sponsored this crime? Who, if not the police, were blocking the road. Who ordered this theft (will those in the banking industry please put their hands up -just kidding, but it does look like a set up).

Oi. When will people begin to take notice what is happening.

The ANC are corrupt, the police are corrupt, the municipalities are corrupt, the juidiciary are corrupt. We are a thoroughly corrupt nation.

When are you going to do something about this? What will it take before you get off your bums and do something?

On the subject of theft

In another vein - this is about petty thievery from homes. It is rife in the suburbs and although the Police are prompt and attentive - nothing is ever recovered.  Read more...
