    Internet is so slow to catch up. Stabbing,robbery,prostitution is a norm in the tarvens.I wonder why is the local government so slow in closing these degrading, killer shebeens. We are not oppressed any more,you can go in every town shebeen 'bar/pub,cafe' you give them cute names but they are all beer gardens were people pis themselves and become stupid.

      Don't put the blame on government, blame the hooligans that go there!!! There is alot of other places in S.A where people get drunk but don't stab each other. Think of another excuse please!!!!

      Hypocrite carlo, Everybody thought your always blame is the government, I wonder when did they convince you for you to protect them publicly 'white man who hates the ANC' get over your yellowish-pink self . And for your info, the local Government is in the process of closing all the shebeens,I was not blaming but highlighting their slowness on acting. VIVA ANC.

      @Carlo Hayes maybe if there were 40million white South Africans instead of 4.5million it would be easier to see white hooligans

      Carlo Hayes - 2011-12-17 16:35

      That is a lame excuse! Look in Europe were the majority of people are white, stuff like this just doesn't happen every day.

      @Carlo Hayes please copy this and paste it on your address bar http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/5712573/UK-is-violent-crime-capital-of-Europe.html After reading please search for SA crimes stats and see for yourself that SA recorded around 2million crimes

      @Carlo Hayes here's another link that shows where the real hooligans are http://www.mapsofworld.com/world-top-ten/countries-with-highest-reported-crime-rates.html

      I have to disagree Carlo, i live in england, and this behaviour is typical of white trash in this country. Every single Friday and Saturday night in any sizeable town is filled with drunken hooligans fighting, destroying property and many are stabbed. The police are outside certain nightclubs and pubs at closing time to try and minimize the chaos. Drunken hooliganism is NOT reserved for non white people.

    With friends like those, who needs enemies?

    Government talks about banning alcahol adds and cracking down on trading hours-WELL they should start at the taverns!!! These are breeding grounds for crime and violence and they have the cops in their pockets!
