Scoring SA through the trial...

15 March 2014, 21:30
Has anybody noticed just how quiet the workers unions, the government and the people in general are surrounding the execution of 43 workers at Marikana ?
How many deaths at the hands of police would spark an uprising in SA?
Watching Roux the last 2 weeks, Revealed so much about what we lack on the policing side..
I know well, after a robbery, very few people would even bother to to open a case. Especially if you have tried before..
Let us say you have been robbed? Would you really think the police will check fingerprints and bother doing any investigation what so ever ?
There is a big mockery at present around the career of policing in SA.
The ministers in parliament cheered at the E-Toll judgement just as they cheered the scorpions being dismantled .
Even though both these matters affect us citizens most...
We have nobody policing thieving and corrupt officials, The scorpions must be brought back to life again. Its vital and it is our right as individuals to have government in check.

SA is in the hands of criminals,  
As for court interpreters, It should be wise to rather bring your own. The court cannot provide proper interpreters.
You would think while watching the trial, When a judge sees some incompetence from the states side or from the police, That these judges should be taking time to write recommendations to government. It should be published too, 
Our courts are ever so inefficient, their trading hours is a joke, 9h30 to the tea, then lunch and then adjournment .
One would think with the massive back log that the courts have , they would try and bring matters up to date, this would mean working more hours.
As a matter of fact the courts should be running 24 hrs a day with rotating judges and more prosecuting teams working for them.Remember at the world cup, there was some idea from government to speed matters up of the legal side. Clearly that was just window dressing and an insincere gesture. 
Crime never rests, Yet our courts trade for only a few hours a day.
If you live in Sweden or Denmark or most European country's, then the courts can run half day as it does in SA.
Crime in SA according to Zuma has dropped. You know, I know that is a lie.
Looks like the ANC is planning fraud at the polls again, But this time a bigger plan is at brew. 
There is no ways more people registered than before, this is not consistent with the tone of the ordinary man.
Most I speak to refuse to vote, Yet our voting registration is up ? Educating the masses in SA is not needed, Its more like educating the few that are in power.

The problem with defining people ...

A while ago there was a spate of articles about white privilege that I really wanted to respond to but business being what it is I simply didn't get the time.
