Cops arrested for rape

Johannesburg - Three men, including two policemen, have been arrested for rape in Nelspoort, police said on Wednesday.

The three men, aged between 23 and 33, were arrested on Tuesday, Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

They allegedly raped and abused four girls, aged between 14 and 18, between January last year and April this year.

"It is alleged that the accused performed sexual acts with the victims over a period of time without their consent."

The two policemen were based at the Nelspoort police station. Pojie said more arrests would be made as police believed other people were involved.

A disciplinary investigation had begun.

"We cannot and will not tolerate, nor allow our members to be involved in crime," said provincial commissioner Lieutenant General Arno Lamoer.

The three men would appear in the Beaufort West Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charges of rape, statutory rape and sexual exploitation.

    Not again, this seems to be happening every day. Only way to solve this is to give these criminals life in prison or cutting their dicks off.

    It's police officers like this that make it so difficult for the good ones. What has happened to our society?

    Hi guys, stand back and look at your comments. I agree that action must be taken, but wow you judge very quickly. Where is your sense of decency....yes reacting and stating that they were not decent in their acts is true, but saying what you say and judging how you judge....catch a wake-up.

      So what are you implying then? How is our judgement inaccurate? Where dealing with low life scum bag rapists. And That’s Exactly What They All Are!! Decency is shown towards people with integrity, not these foul creatures. So please get off your moral high horse, choppa!!

      @Zulu - are you for real? Why dont you stand back and accept that these clowns violated someone elses rights, and to boot they CHOSE to do a job of protecting the very public whose rights they violated. I think we know where our sense of decency is - my question to you Zooolooo is where is your sense of morality? You arent Jacob Zuma are you? Catch a - aw forget it - you're too thick to get it...

    I think that any cop involved In a crime like murder or rape, if found guilty should immediately get a life sentence. Full stop, do not pass begin do not collect 200. They are supposed to be our protectors but yet they prey on us. Life i say! LIFE!!!!

    Further more I think the government should create a law whereby, should a non south african citizen be found guilty of a crime that they be mediately deported and banned from entering SA again. For life!!!! Let their own country do with them as they will. Also this lifetime visa for missionaries must stop!!!!

    We the parents, friends of children who have been sexually abused need someone with power to stand up for children without Voices and make sure that these sick people dont get bail. Did they give a choice to our children or friends.Does a 9 month old baby have a Voice to say NO Please we need all the signatures to make our children FREE AGAIN to be able to play and laugh instead of being scared.
