    Serves him well!! Not condoning mob justice, but poeple have had enough, and the cops are not helping either.

    If He did it then well done but if it was false then perpetrators must be disciplined

    I don't condone killing, but when it comes to criminals I just can't find any sympathy either. A product of the current SA perhaps???

      If the system was working I would have trusted. Highest crime rates in the world!! Does that mean the police are effective? No, because they are forced to restrain themselves. Maybe we should step up and help them out.

      Tsietsi we can't put our trust in men

      eric.schollar - 2012-05-14 13:44

      @Tsietsi. Trust the police and justice system? What have you been smoking? Try visiting the real SA one day!

    May be convicted rapists and murderers should be subject to mob justice. Just Saying.

  • Alan - 2012-05-14 11:47

    I hope he did steal the car. If so.....YIIIIIIPPPEEEEEEEE!!!

  • Deana - 2012-05-14 11:51

    This is what happens when people get fed up and take justice into their own hands. While I feel bad for the thief's loved ones mourning him- this is the only way SA will get crime under control- As our dear government opposes the death penalty. The same should be done top rapists and murderers.

  • revaro.winkler - 2012-05-14 11:51

    kasi justice

  • sjhuman1 - 2012-05-14 12:01

    I'm loving this. we should start a thing where everyone in SA gets a air horn. if you come across a criminal you sound the horn and he ends up being killed. thats taking law into your own hands. seeing as the cops cant shoot and are getting fired.

      n3r0t0x1n - 2012-05-14 13:57

      But maybe it will be like that Bloemfontein video, you blow the horn while the person is stealing your car, and all of the onlookers just say "Eish, baas, there goes another kaaritjie"

      In the old, very old Jhb CBD, there used to be elderly Zulus with 'knobkerries'. I can tell you Jhb was the safest place on earth. When a criminal was found in the act, whistles were blown and all the guards within ear shot of the distress whistle would converge on the scene and beat the living daylights out of the criminal. That's how you deal with vermin.

    Instant justice.People are sick and tired of our judiciary system.Its failing them so that they take the law into their own hands

    mo justice has been around since the beginning of time. only after police was introduced it all went pear-shaped. no repeat offence. no wasting tax-payer money housing, feeding, caring for them. no rax-payer money wasted on jails and the prison warders. works for me. and any aspiring criminal knows he will die.

    when (if ever) will the politicians notice- the system isn't working- the people feel betrayed and helpless- criminals have more rights than the longsuffering public...in a roundabout way the criminals themselves are even not so guilty because its the leaders who gives them a license and a platform to carry out their crimes

  • Gee - 2012-05-14 17:52

    good....one less oxygen thief.

  • Ally - 2012-05-14 18:17

    Let the people decide! It's swift, effective and the perpetrator will never steal again.

  • Monica - 2012-05-15 06:12

    Yh give that mob a bells! Sounds good 100%'\
