Crime is not going away

24 July 2014, 12:00

As I made abundantly clear a couple of days ago, I have a major problem with crime in our country specifically the horrendous attacks on farmers and families. Now I believe I made my point that I believe every SA citizen has the right to defend themselves. This got me thinking that just writing a bunch of articles about the fact that hate crimes against white people cannot be denied isn’t really doing anyone much good, is it?

So far the only reaction I got is being called a racist and a lot of people agreeing. Well people I hate to break it to you but no matter how many times we agree on the matter it’s not going to change a damn thing. So I started thinking what can we do that will change the situation.

Firstly I had a look at what do we need. Well that turns out to be an easy one, we need a police force. However the one that the government has supplied us with is about as useful as a waterproof tea bag. Then something struck me, when I was growing up there were way more military patrols in SA so I decided to find out why. Well it turns out that almost every small town had something called a “commando” which is basically a reservist military unit.

And that made sense seeing as in those days all men did military service they could thereafter serve at the “commando” where they would conduct patrols and so forth to ensure the security of their town or area if you will. Now the funny thing is this, these units were still made up of the people who lived in the area and who had day jobs.

Now I ask you this, what in the world stops us from doing it now? I can already hear a million excuses but I thought about it and sorry guys that is probably our best bet to ensure our own survival. The only problem I see with this is well to put it bluntly we have become “slapgat”.

I thought about and the first thought that hit me was, so I’m going to spend my free time not only looking after myself but a lot of other people too. And I must admit I was not to thrilled about that idea, but then I thought about it that you know what I’m also expecting someone else to look after me.

But at the end of the day it worked in the past why not now? Or does the fact that they have taken away the uniform change anything?

So like I said I know I’m probably going to get a million excuses but let’s hear exactly how unwilling we are to stand up for ourselves.
