Our police are sitting ducks

2015-09-03 06:00

The recent killings of our police officers in SA leaves us wondering what may be the cause.

But we must also keep in mind the saying: “There is no smoke without fire.”

Our police officers are not skilled enough or equipped to deal with cases.

The manner in which some police officers handle cases is shocking.

We always read and hear in the media about how mean some of them become when doing their jobs.

I’m a victim of bad treatment from a particular officer in Mamelodi.

In my opinion, I think he does not qualify to be a police officer.

I had a domestic problem at home. Instead of solving the problem, he kept on telling my wife to divorce me.

Is that what they are supposed to do?

We can all guess what his intentions were in that regard.

Many people are tired of the treatment they get from police officials.

This results in communities not co-operating when they require assistance.

The powers in the police force need to review the training methods of the SAPS.

No to police killings!
