Somebody please help...

13 March 2012, 15:02

In life, there are many different characters in people. One could label some as clever or smart, some as stupid, some as parasites, some are considered the architects of useful resources and the infrastructure people use in their everyday lives.

In South Africa we have quite a lot, but three of those characters are the most dominating. SA has Hard-workers who worry about making life better, the Sit-back-relaxers who get what the Hard-workers share with them through tax, and the Parasites – you already know what I mean – those that sneak into Hard-workers’ houses and “take.”

Of course there are many other characters that have their own definitions and detrimental effects in society, but I would love to focus on the Hard-workers and the Parasites. Crime is a serious issue to many Hard-working SA citizens.

There are new areas of housing developments in some parts of the country. In Johannesburg, there are quite a few that I personally know of. Criminals target these houses. The criminals know that the people that stay in these houses are the Hard-workers. In most cases, Hard-workers are at their workplaces during the day. That is a great opportunity for Parasites – the criminals – to step in and “take.”

From June 2011 to present, four cars were stolen in an area I live in. It is a new housing development. More than eight house break-ins occurred. Just yesterday, some lady’s flat screen television was stolen. All the house break-ins happen during the day. The community members, who don’t work during the day, try to help by calling the police and blowing whistles to alarm others, the police arrive three hours late.

These Parasites have a serious instinct of doing what they do. They don’t panic. When the alarm launches, they go ahead as planned – without panic. They park their car in your yard (most of these new houses are not fenced yet), open the boot and shovel your belongings in their car.

The justice system does not deal with such cases in a way that at least consoles the victims. Instead, the police make the experience even worse. Community members have evidence of what happens during the day; they have video footages, registrations and colours of the vehicles that roam around the community streets. But the police do nothing to fight this. Somebody please help! If you can’t, the least you could do is be aware of such activities. It might be you next.
