    Attempted Murder? No. Really? What else did our clever SAPS think someone is trying to do when they shoot at a bus... Some alternative form of graffiti?

    Me thinks it could have something to do with the firing of the drivers. Last week the 3 robbers threatened to set the bus alight with the occupants. I wondered how long it would take for this to start happening.

    So ..... Do we pay For etags (forced I might add) or use the gaubus and get shot at...... And generally speaking -yip shooting at someone would be attempted murder.

    Too many crims in the SAPS to find any outside of it.
