Police . One Friday I was waiting for someone at the Philippi police station when two boys came with petrol and asked for help for their father, who is old and whose car broke down near the bridge. They wanted to ask him whereabouts he was, but the policeman said a straightforward ‘No’.

So we phoned their dad, who said he was at Voorspoed Primary. With the shootings and robberies how could they be so insensitive and disrespectful? They should offer service with care and a smile. - Merle

. The police refuse to help me send an e-mail to Arno Lamoer’s office to let him deal with those corrupt police who tax the people, take bribes and tip the merchants off and take the station commander for granted.

. People are leaving the country not only in fear of their safety, but also due to the police’s ignorance. Some of them are a disgrace, why do they keep on getting away with their actions? What happened to “serve and protect”?

. We are not safe anywhere as gangs are keeping the community hostage. Yes, we do everything we can to keep safe, but if a coward gangster wants something nothing’s going to stop him with that gun in his hand. Start making examples out of them. It will make them think twice next time
