Fire with Fire

11 February 2013, 07:36

We as South Africans and as humans need to stop this "BULL".

Stop all the blackberry messages, facebook status updates and tweets about crimes in general.

Criminals do not respond to these actions, instead of getting onto our social media choices and writing or updating our statuses and actually think we making a difference.

Last time I checked no one solved a crime with a facebook status or changed anything for the better.

WE!!!!!!! As South Africans need to hold our politicians and police responsible for not doing their jobs.

Instead they sit in their offices sending emails and making statements and tweets meant to fix thing.

Step up guys and start doing something; this is not a white/black thing or even an ANC/DA issue.


Let’s stop letting criminals get away with things, 5-10 even life sentences are no longer enough.

Our jails are to full, we need to start combating crime with no regard as well , why should a murderer get life after taking a life , why should a rapist get 5-10, instead of death?

Why do we offer criminals jail time or should I say "HOTEL" we offer then 3meals a day, a bed, shower etc, for the poor community to get this murder, rape or any other form of crime with a sentence attached is just a way to get off the street and let the tax payer and innocent people take care of them.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time to fight fire with fire, bring back the death penalty for crimes that deserve death, a LIFE for a LIFE.
