    Death Penalty is the only way for these savages

      DoublySalmon - 2011-07-04 21:31

      Dogs who bite humans are shot, humans who kill humans should be shot also.

      Flash - 2011-07-04 22:16

      I couldn't agree more. I cannot understand the argument that the death penalty is a "cruel and inhumane" punishment. Why should we value their life if they clearly don't values others.

      Peter - 2011-07-05 09:24

      The death penalty is cruel punishment because many friends of government would be submitted to the death penalty and then who would vote

      A diseased limb is amputated to save and preserve the rest of the body. In the same way, these cancers on our society should be excised to protect the rest of the population.

      Again these thugs are such cowards . Attacking women . Condolences to the families. Hope the police nail the killers

    So much for the much vaunted "ubuntu" that all blacks are said to practise assiduously. Not that I believe that the Christian tenet of love thy neighbour is more honoured. But at least the whites do not go about priding themselves on this. Let the truth be known - blacks in this country have no respect for human life as is comfirmed once again by this incident and the daily farm murders. Maybe this is not politically correct but the truth never is.

      Kleinjan - 2011-07-04 23:13

      Hopeforall, did you grab a random dictionary and started typing words?? All things you said makes absolutely no sense what so ever. What is a boor?

      Kleinjan - 2011-07-04 23:20

      I bet you study drama....

      Kleinjan - 2011-07-04 23:24

      "pollute the environ"?? Your best year was the 7th year in grade five?

      York Hunt - 2011-07-05 09:11

      @Gallus. I call them nihilists - blacks that is. To me, that is politically and literally 100% correct. @Kleinjan. Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 09:18

      Hopeforall. OK Now having impressed everyone immensely with your stunning vocab, perhaps you could speak in terms the average jack understands.

      Xinobia - 2011-07-05 11:04

      Well done with a piece well written. Sad that some poor souls like Kleinjan, York Hunt & daaivark don't understand. Shame! And then they criticize. I think you are more than correct: blacks in this country have no respect for human life.

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 14:15

      For the record, Xinobia, I am anything but sad. I hold my opinion, just as you hold yours. I consider your opinion to be worthless, but you are free to have it. Kleinjan, look in a dictionary. Xinobia, you are beyond help.

  • World Traveler - 2011-07-04 20:23

    Sick people! Sick anc! Sick President!

      Bluemas - 2011-07-04 21:42

      and sick opposition parties like DA

      Bill - 2011-07-04 22:00

      No're sick!

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 09:19

      Children, children. Play nice.

      Opinionated - 2011-07-05 09:28

      Soooooo bored with political parties always being brought into discussion. These actions were the actions of individuals, and it is these individuals that need to be dealt with... there is no point projecting the matter in another the direction, it will not resolve anything.

      Xinobia - 2011-07-05 11:10

      Bluemas did you vote? Or are you one of those people who criticize but do nothing about it, because you believe as the masses, IT'S YOUR RIGHT, you don't have to do anything.................

      Kevin - 2011-07-05 16:27

      Bluemas -Does your comment mean you do not think the killers are sick? You have a problem

  • Leon Groenewald - 2011-07-04 20:31

    In the absence of civilization the civilized will always be the victim of any dispute. The animals responsible for this heinous act clearly acts outside of the construct of civilization and should therefore not be brought to justice (which is also a civilized construct). They should be dealt with by uncivilized men with a point of view in opposition to theirs. Only then may we even begin to hope that justice may be served.

      Mr D - 2011-07-04 23:59

      @Leon, Wag so n' bietjie, wat die ouens nou doen en wat die vorige regering se sterk arm manne gedoen het is dieselfde. Die SAP AKA Varkplaas se manne het mense ontvoer en vermoor uitgebrand of in mynskagte afgegooi net om more uit te vind dis die verkeerde ouens en glad nie ANC manne nie. Vir een oomblik se ek nie moorde op witmense is reg nie maar dis nou maar hoe dit is die gespuis van vandag doen wat die SAP en Varkplaas se manne jare terug gedoen het so asb mense moenie so geskok wees nie. Gaan lees eers die verslae van die Waarheidskommiesie voor julle julle bekke uispoel oor dinge wat julle niks van weet nie. It's payback time en kry dit nou maar in jul koppe....

      Xinobia - 2011-07-05 11:13

      Mr D - Waaroor gaan jy aan. Dis nie wittes wat hier doodgeskiet is nie, so waar kom die payback vir SAP en Varkplaas jare gelede in?

      De la Rey - 2011-07-05 13:57

      Mr D, as jy bloed op jou hande het, praat vir jouself. So min as wat die gewone man op straat die ANC vandag kan oortuig om 'n reguit padjie te loop, so min beheer het die man op straat destyds beheer oor die doen en late van die Nationale Party politici gehad. Ek was maar net 'n jong laaitie wat gewerk het vir 'n toekoms en het niemand doodgemaak omdat hy/sy 'n ander kleur as ek is nie. Hierdie was buitendien nie 'n rassemoord as ek die berig reg gelees het nie, maar aangesien jy dit nou 'n rasse-issue wil maak. Daar is 'n groot verskil tussen politieke vuispel en 'n moord deur 'n gewone lede van die publiek op ander lede van die algemene publiek soos in hierdie geval, tensy jy iets weet wat ons ander lesers nie weet nie??. En amper vergeet ek, jy klink erg rassisties. Geen moord, van enige ras kan goedgepraat word nie, maak nie saak hoeveel jy my as blanke haat nie en hierdie moord klink na swart op swart?

      Manyoza - 2011-08-04 15:09

      @De la Rey. You sound like a man with a very balanced opinion. Well written. Regards.

  • phillip.havenga - 2011-07-04 20:38

    No death penalty for these type of dogs, there should be a new penalty the skinned alive and left to die slowly penalty in public. That should deter this kind of filth.

  • Gregory - 2011-07-04 20:40

    What a savage country.

  • l3mming - 2011-07-04 21:10

    these are death squads. they are trying to fish for reaction.

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 09:21

      Oh Bull! Grow a brain.... or is it too barren in there?

  • THE.SRG - 2011-07-04 21:21

    this is terrible...nothing to do with black or white...just terrible.its a god damd shame when old folks have lived their whole lives avoiding crap to be snuffed out by greedy young ones.its a shame

  • Ian - 2011-07-04 21:47

    are u happy malema, see what you have created, your criminal scum have even turned on your own

      Opinionated - 2011-07-05 09:34

      Seriously, I think Malema is a knob as well, but he can't now be blamed for every shooting that happens in SA, that is just lame. There were shootings long before he was around and will be long after, fact is that these guys are ruthless killers and that is the bottom line.

  • Darkidonea - 2011-07-05 03:41

    reason? does there have to be one in SA? sheesh!!

  • Smaal - 2011-07-05 07:36

    Sorry guys, I can’t agree with you. They were not tied up or raped nor was anything stolen. This was no robbery, it was a “problem solving solution”. Either elimination or maybe a suspected practitioner of the dark arts who “needed to be removed”. Who knows but it definitely wasn’t robbery.

  • Theoniel Bosman - 2011-07-05 07:40

    Why...just for R500 or what?

      Mishka - 2011-07-05 08:02

      What R500? According to the report, NOTHING was taken. I tend to agree with the comment above yours by Smaal, that this was a 'problem solving' act. Thug scum despots. May their privates itch continuously, and their hands turn to fish hooks.

      DJI - 2011-07-05 08:44

      Could be DA supporters taken out because, well, they vote DA.

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 09:22

      DJI. DO you need help?

      DJI - 2011-07-05 09:31

      Daaivark, not really, it is the anc way to threaten and burn down houses to put fear into the opposition supporters. Maybe this went one step further.

      daaivark - 2011-07-05 14:29

      I think it might be wise to seek help anyway. There's a psych hospital near you, I'm sure.

      DJI - 2011-07-05 17:42

      daaivark, no thanks, you look little senile, maybe get help for yourself maybe to much lsd in the 60's. TX

  • Fredster69 - 2011-07-05 09:46

    You should have a form of deterrent. There is nothing in SA, cause when the thugs kill and get away, Great. If they get caught...also great cause now they have food and shelter. It is a win win situation. Thanks to our great forefathers for messing this up...

  • Mart - 2011-07-05 10:23

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of the victims. What has always been evident in most these murders is that the victims are elderly and largely defenceless. I fear that this country is overpopulated with cowards....further evidence is that they are intimidated by, and attack lesbians under the guise of 'correction'. The truth is that they are weak and cannot compete equally in our tough world and so commit crimes against the weak to give themselves some sort of misguided 'value'. These are mutants that must be destroyed if the innocent are to have any chance at life.

  • liebner - 2011-07-05 11:05

    Bring back the death penalty!!!

  • Civil_Rights - 2011-07-05 13:03

    Bring Back the death penalty. An eye for an eye.

  • Darwinian - 2011-07-05 14:41

    Those two heart goes out for them, same to the families. It is sad that articles like this, is the norm in SA...sad sad sad.

  • Badballie - 2011-07-05 14:58

    The death penalty is dead and gone, no way will the ANC allow its power base voter wise to be affected. Face facts South Africa is one of the only countries that gives prisoners civil liberties and the right to vote. Other countries suspend the civil rights of its prisoners the way it should be.
