    Aaah, to be a doctor or nurse... imagine having to help heal a thug like this? - 2012-10-07 22:23

      A doctor friend of mine did his "Zuma year" in Umtata in 1998. He often spoke of having to protect himself and other staff members in the hospital from thugs with surgical instruments taped to the end of a broomstick.... Go figure!

      RIP dude! All it takes for evil to win is for good men to do nothing!!! Never turn your back on someone in distress!!!

    Salute and respect to the unnamed hero for not just standing by and watch the assault of the defenseless woman! if only the mob got angry when numbnuts was beating on his wife first, the hero would not have had to pay with his life! Its a pity the mob only sent him to hospital, the swine deserved to die!!!!

      As I read your comments/opinions guys regarding this PARTICULAR story, no one and absolutely no one has in mind that we are NOT permited to take the LAW in our hands.

      @Onke just as people are not permitted to take lives,assault women/men, steal, rape but does that stop them? No, but they deserve to live so they can repeat the cycle and exercize their human rights while they infringed those of their victims. Very twisted world this is.

      Onke, we are mostly law abiding citizens that express our opinions here. Wait untill someone close to you are taken away in such a senseless act, then turn the other cheek! And when it sinks in come and express yourself again! It is the kind of appathy that you display that in some way encourage these criminals to thrive!

    Murder in south africa typically only gets 5 years in jail. And people ask me why I support the death penalty.

      Where you pulling these stats from? At least state your source?? Which study??

      gestoffle.vaneerdenvark - 2012-10-07 23:32

      @Jack, have you been living under a rock? Kent is actually exaggerating, it's less than 5 years! It's figurative anyway, WTF cares. Unless of course you asking him to state his source for justifying the death penalty - just read news24 each day.

      lindela.e.mtshali - 2012-10-08 07:08

      Really? So you are saying that you get that little for murder? How about carrying an unlicensed firearm with ammunition? Let's just complicate things and say that firearm was used in a murder? What will you get for that? I read somewhere that some woman married to a minister got 20 years for asking someone to transport drugs

    People will help you out when you in trouble which is the decent thing to do in a civilized society.This thug who stab's others when helping a person in need should get locked away for life.

  • jay.kganyago.5 - 2012-10-07 14:46

    So based on the picture, the stabber is white, and yet I'm told that crime is committed by blacks.

      golden.egg.12 - 2012-10-07 14:58

      I don't know what you are trying to do but you are such a racist. How sad and voetsek.

    why dont they let him suffer for awhile, let him really feel pain..

  • riotousr - 2012-10-08 10:21

    That is why I prefer to attack my wife from behind. That way we both face in the same direction. Any unwelcome interference will be thwarted with ease.

      rude.awakning - 2012-10-09 05:13

      really i can see the humour, if it wasnt such a sad case with a life lost.
