    What kind of "thing" can put a gun against a child's head, or anyone's for that matter? What a terrible, traumatic experience for that poor family. I wish every terrible thing imaginable on those who did this.

      WarDog - 2011-10-03 11:11

      No Coquine, I did not do this.

      Dilberrt - 2011-10-03 11:29

      @EnglishBoer Sadly I read far too often along similar lines "We need to start fighting back now" .. it's been years and years that this is going on, and for years I'm seeing similar comments. There is little anyone can do I'm afraid other than try their best to protect themselves and their family. This senseless and probably racial murders will not end any-time soon - fact!

      Siff - 2011-10-03 11:36

      coquine It is retards like yourself who are the cause of atrocities like this. WarDog has hit the nail on the head, unfortunately we are headed down a very dark road where blood will flow like rivers and that is because little liberal fools such as Coquine have pushed us down this road in their ignorance.

      Shadoz - 2011-10-03 11:47

      Shut up Coquine maybe you should stick some common sense up ur nose

      Kiepies - 2011-10-03 12:04

      We had incident on Saturday on vacant stand adjacent to our property with so-called barber plying his trade there inbetween doing gardening work where he stays - one of his customers with their GTI Golf came with two friends, parked car, turned up volume of boom-boom music, and strolled around the car and area drinking beer out of green bottles and clapping their hands to the music - when told to turn music down, kept ignoring us and when my husband went to warn barber and his clientele about it being JRA property with neither having any right to be there, whilst my husband turn around to walk away, one of the clients got ready to hit my husband in the back to which I shouted with barber then grabbing hold of his client and pulling him back - I called the police, took photograph of car and the clients and an hour later, police rocked up with usual story (SAPS situated three blocks away), we short of cars, manpower, blah blah, to which I said not once during the five times we got burgled, anyone came to take fingerprints, when our lives are threatened, because we are white, we are now the forgotten race - maybe we should arm ourselves and start shooting when threatened to which the AA sergeant, yes maybe its better to which I replied and guess who is going to get arrested, us, not the perpetrators to which he could not answer me......!!!

      WarDog - 2011-10-03 12:09

      Strange how certain comments just vanishes but I’ll stand by my words “remember these stories well”. People like Coquine and other liberals might not like the truth but unfortunately the truth does not care what you think. What is staring us in the face is 50+ million who want what maybe 3 million has. Fueled by hatred, greed and entitlement without the means or capability to achieve it, spurred on by words to kill. What do you think is going to happen? Playing nice and making excuses for deeds like this will not make the problem go away.

      Taboe - 2011-10-03 12:28

      What kind of "thing"... The same kind of "thing" that did it to little Willemientjie who was ony THREE years old. The same kind of "thing" that has done it to so many white farmers. The same kind of "thing" that Malema encourages to do these things. The same kind of "thing" that will still do the same many times. The same "thing" that the ANC has been turning a blind eye to for 16 years.

      Gaina - 2011-10-03 12:58

      Ayoba s comment that this happens every where is naive, SA is the second most violent country in the world, if we got honest statistics we would probably be shown to be the most violent.

      I think, at the moment, it's only the Mexican Mafia that's worse than here!

      time for zuma to proof that his youth league is not running the show. Kill the boer kill the farmer must not be allowed in south africa. do you have the balls to protect the whites in south africa?? - 2011-10-03 15:55

  • jeremy - 2011-10-03 11:03

    I'm not normally a supporter of the death penalty. But there are crimes for which it seems to be the only appropriate sentence. This is one of them. Whoever committed this terrible crime has forfeited his/their right to live!

  • sniperman - 2011-10-03 11:03

    And the genocide continues unabatedly.

      Siff - 2011-10-03 11:43

      Jeremy wake up you twat what in hells name do you think is happening around you? How may white farmers have to be annihilated before you open your eyes to the truth?

      The_Realist - 2011-10-03 11:45

      @ jeremy, wake-up & get your head out of your ass! this is blatant & savage murder! "Genocide is where one race sets out to destroy another", what fool's paradise are living in that you think this is not EXACTLY what is happening here in sifefrica?

      Francois - 2011-10-03 11:50

      @jeremy, we have actually been upgraded(or is that down) to level 6 out of 7 for the possibility of genocide,, 7 being the actually mass killings of people. If you look at their page of how they describe genocides evolution, what is busy happening in South Africa is almost a carbon copy of exactly their analysis.

      Natalee - 2011-10-03 11:59

      I agree,,, when are we going to say enough is enough and stand together against the Malemas of this country

      Noname - 2011-10-03 12:05


      The_Realist - 2011-10-03 12:06

      jeremy, you can STILL not dispute your OWN statement! "Genocide is where one race sets out to destroy another", because it is 100% correct & 100% in effect!!!

      The Wonderer - 2011-10-03 12:31

      @jeremy; The term genocide in SA might sound far fetched to you, but have a look at this link & allow reality to sink in. This is how a Global organisation views us! We're at stage 6, stage 7 is genocide. "Genocide Watch will keep South Africa at Stage 6 - Preparation, until Julius Malema is removed from his position of growing power."

      The_Realist - 2011-10-03 12:38

      jeremy, quit sphyncter diving! "If you're firmly convinced that every black person is out to kill you" i NEVER said anything of the sort!, let me guess, genocidewatch and other organizations have NO idea what they are talking about because jeremy said they are wrong, jeremy you are retarded! do not procreate & do consider euthanasia!

      Lions Man - 2011-10-03 12:44

      This happened next door to my wife's parents place in Walkerville. The little boy was drowned in a bath of boiling hot water (from the police on the scene) and they have linked the garden boy at the property and my parents in laws domestic workers son to the crime through finger prints lifted at the scene. The police have said they will shoot them on site. I was there on Saturday afternoon when the incident happened and we had no idea what was going on a couple of 100 meters away. The property where this happened has an 8 foot high electrified fence around it but obviously because this was an inside job the fence meant nothing. It has been proven that 8 out 10 of these crimes are inside jobs. This is now too close to home and we have decided to emigrate from South Africa, bare in mind my wife has a Doctorate in Science and I have a Masters degree in Science. So Julius you are achieving what you have set out to achieve.

      cliffarc - 2011-10-03 12:47

  • NowOrNever - 2011-10-03 11:04

    It is my wish that someone in the family takes revenge on such a large scale that the rest of the world will start taking notice on what is happening in your country.

      Psalm - 2011-10-03 11:14

      Revenge against whom exactly? Or are you one of those nutters who think it is reasonable for people to go on public shooting sprees? The world will notice, alright, and will call your "avenger" a terrorist- as he/she will indeed be.

      Pekkie - 2011-10-03 11:19

      Even though i disagree, Look across the globe, people eventually start to go on killing spree and blame all sorts of things, Lets hope this never happens as it would unite all affected by crime, This would be a very dangerous situation and would cost many lives, however the Government hasnt once come out to condemn these types of murders, so its reasonable to assume there are people already taking revenge but on small scale, God help us if its on a large scale!

      Baddy - 2011-10-03 12:04

      Now you are talking... Like the way you think

      emile.eley - 2011-10-03 16:10

      Violence begets violence. It is not the solution.

      Pekkie - 2011-10-03 16:40

      Emile agreed, but do you have any idea how many people will disagree with us? Its shocking, Whats the one thing that affects most in SA? Crime, and its crime that will unite them, I believe there is a big storm coming, If our government wont do anything about it the people will, all races who have been affected by crime will unite as one and then you going to see how African Justice is dealt whether innocent or guilty, Its happened across the globe many times, Now its Africa's turn!

      It seems that it is very easy when you look at the execution type killings. People like that should be removed from the gene pool asap. To people like these the next drag on a cigarette or sip of booze has more value than human life. Sick

      Well Fraser, that obviously makes all the difference.

      jeremy - 2011-10-03 11:38

      I don't know whether it's Viana or Vaina - but the dead man definitely wasn't the racing driver Tony Viana. As far as I know he died some time ago.

      pragmatism - 2011-10-03 12:10

      Vaina or Viana ... doesn't really matter, the family isn't less dead.

      blacksonly - 2011-10-03 12:30

      @fraser, i guess that will make the incident better to you. the family would be less dead. Funny funny comments.

  • PilgrimX - 2011-10-03 11:25

    This is getting too much and I don't even know how to comment on this. Helloooo Cele and Zuma, can't you see what is happening? Yet you want to watse time with petty pepper spray and biltong knive issues.

      Broodjie - 2011-10-03 15:19

      You know PilgrimX, they know exactly what is happening and they love it! That is why don't intend to do anything, cause this is what the ANC wants!

  • Robyn-Lee - 2011-10-03 11:30

    This is disgusting and Justice should be served. . I knew this family and they were so helpful. . Amaro went to Highveld Primary in Linmeyer. I hope the people are found and this is why i feel the death penalty should be brought back. He was 13 with a full life ahead of him and so innocent. They have a daughter overseas, i really hope she doesn't have to read about this . .

      blacksonly - 2011-10-03 12:06

      point is, they will be caught then sentenced 25 years in prison. At least escapes three times before they get parole having served only half of the sentence. Costing tax payer about R200 a day for each of them on expenses for medical, sports, food, shelter etc. Does it really make sense to have these heartless criminals in our society? Lets force government to bring death penalty.

  • blacksonly - 2011-10-03 11:51

    Zuma evaded the question about death sentence this morning. Criminals are not scared to kill because they know when u take them to prisons they will still have rights to everything. You are in essence relocating them to their other homes, and u still have to foot the bills for their arse.

    The family were not shot. They were hacked to death with pangas like animals. The people who did this do not deserve to breathe our air. They should be hanged. One arrest has been made. A man who worked on the property has been arrested. Well done to the SAPS for their quick action. Malema singing his effing song should also be killed if he still thinks it is okay to provoke this type of action. Now a young girl must live the rest of her life with no parents and no brother. nothing will justify this behaviour!! Nothing! Bring back the death penalty!

    @Blacksonly-your reply to Pommie Abroad is interesting.The very reason you wanted to "kill whites" is the same reason this mentality is is starting to manifest itself now!Whether you admit it or not,the fact is,Whites,as a minority are being treated as such and together with the terrible violent crimes and Government,s Apathy/ Silence,a flame is being enkindled.

      charms - 2011-10-03 13:45

    Tragic, absolutely f#cking tragic!!! Condolences to all affected by this horrible family killing... I understand there are plenty of people calling it the start of Genocide and instilling fear into the hearts of many. I have the same thoughts at times, but lets face it, there are on average 4-7 incidents like this happening to black families for every one white family attacked. I'm not saying thst it isn't a hate crime, but c'mon people. this affects ALL south africans of ALL colours. People are being wiped out at a incredible rate with inexplicable brutality. I wonder just how many white people glance over articles where people have been murdered because its blacks, not whites. I know we do it cos many have admitted it to me. This type of crime is especially dangerous in that it weakens an already very sensitive social fabric. I wish we could all stand together and say enough is enough. this affects all of us, no-matter what colour we are. S.A. is not safe for anyone anymore.....

      charms - 2011-10-03 13:49

      Yes, but unfortunately we dont here whites singing the same song as Malema, and I am sorry for all people being murdered everywhere but when it comes to whites, it's a lot more brutal...
