      I missed the part where they threw him. Where did they throw him to, or what did they throw him at or against? Whatever the case, good riddance to yet another piece of scum and a case of Bells to the brave who defended the rights of the lady. Well done to you!

      Raymond - 2012-06-14 08:32

      Please don't ever comment or thumbs down anything this d00s ever says. We're just keeping him going.

  • jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-06-13 18:19

    The people in Katlehong don't take cr@p. Its a very dangerous profession to be a tsotsi there. Hope this will go out as a stern warning to the rest of them. People are getting g@t vol.

      Koos - 2012-06-14 01:37

      We should send some ancESTORS there for target practice

  • Shirley Van Heerden - 2012-06-13 18:21

    At last the community of SA starts fighting back. We are g@tvol for the tsotsis and prisoners having all the rights. Only thing outstanding- bring back the death penalty for raping of children, gangrape and murder. And hard labour for all the other crimes. Pay your debt- build roads, make bricks, build homes, replant forests. No more holiday with benefits courtisy of the tax payers - thats us law abiding citizens

      Lana - 2012-06-13 18:34

      I agree Shirly! It's rediculous that a person who took away another's human rights are protected religiously. Criminals should fear prison, not look foreward to it as a welcome break from the daily grind of robbing, murdering and raping.

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-06-13 18:22

    If he allegedly tried to rob a woman he brought the attack upon himself. People are tired of crime, of lack of justice and apply jungle justice. Harsh I know, but maybe necessary. If the justice system was seen to be doing its job properly, maybe this would not happen.

  • barry.dogg.fritz - 2012-06-13 18:27

    give that mob a bells one less oxygen thief to contend with

  • Lana - 2012-06-13 18:27

    People are frustrated with the lack of results from the police service, what do you expect....?

  • Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-13 18:35

    Probably some ill disciplined youth. Such good news.

  • dave.prinsloo - 2012-06-13 18:50

    i prefer getting stoned the rasta way

      Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-13 19:17

      Agreed Dave.

      Rob - 2012-06-14 08:52

      Good one dave. Lol.

  • Ako - 2012-06-13 19:12

    Give that crowd a Bells and some more stones, oh no some ROCKS. The government doesn't want to bring back the death penalty people are bringing it back themselves

      Gerald - 2012-06-14 08:41

      That will make it Bells on the rocks

  • selahle - 2012-06-13 19:14

    What was jail made for again? Brutal South Africa

      Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-13 19:18

      In our jails the criminals get set free.

      Shirley Van Heerden - 2012-06-13 19:22

      subsides accomodation, payed with your tax- that is what jail is! Then they are released to rob, rape and murder your loved ones. We pay their studies, meals, clothes, heating and medicines - all this whilst law abiding people die because of poor service delivery. Does that answer your question. And for the record: If any criminal dare hurt my family, I will stone him myself!!

      Sewela Marcia Rapudubudu - 2012-06-13 19:27

      Selahle don't tell me that you are feeling sorry for him.

  • stefaans.blaauw - 2012-06-13 19:24

    Well it should be an eye opner to the SAPD, and the ANC. The population is tyred and fed up with a useless police force. Who else can they rely on, but them selves?? Hope someone wakes up in the process. Hang em Hihg.

      Wally Walters - 2012-06-13 19:49

      Im sure he was one of those set free by zuma on freedom day ones criminal always a criminal proove me wrong because 43 is back in jail who was set free

  • Dawid Van Heerden - 2012-06-13 19:49

    Best news I heard all day. Stones are much cheaper than bullets.

  • Terrence Shava - 2012-06-13 19:57

    Give that mob a bells!!

  • Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-13 20:27

    2000 years ago the christians stoned the wrongdoers. Not much progression in this country!

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-06-14 05:36

      I just wonder how many times he asked for help? Was he destitute or a common criminal? I often wonder people even bother to stay alive. What makes the sense of self-preservation so strong? Is it easier to cut someone else's throat before your own? Most importantly - why breed when you can not even sustain yourself? We have a lot to answer for. All of us.

  • Emmanuel - 2012-06-14 08:20

    Lets stand and fight crime

      Rob - 2012-06-14 09:49

      Stand & throw......
