Parolee rapes warder's wife - report

2012-11-04 15:50

Johannesburg - A paroled prisoner is expected to appear in the Uniondale Magistrate's Court on Monday for allegedly raping a warder's wife, Rapport newspaper reports.

The 27-year-old was arrested last week after he allegedly broke into the prison warder's home in the early hours of the morning. He had been released on parole the previous week. The warder was not home at the time.

He reportedly got into bed with the woman.

When she realised he was not her husband, she tried to get away, but he overpowered and allegedly assaulted and raped her.

    Considering the unmatched depravity of the SA criminal, paroling prisoners is idiotic. Catch 'em and keep 'em (or kill \em, but we're much to bleeding heart for that). Never parole them!

      On the plus side he now goes back to the same prison? Of cause if you're the husband, there may be a few slips on the stairs, walking into know..accidents

    There must be much more to the story then what is told. Even if you are really stupid, why would you go and rape a prison warders wife, after getting released on parole, really? it might not be stupidity but actually revenge or something. Still does not make it right though.\r\n\r\nWe cannot keep prisoners in prison forever, the tax burden on normal society would become to much, and that would not reduce crime. Killing them wont work as well. People do not commit crime because they are not afraid of the punishment, they commit crime because they are not getting caught, better policing reduces crime, not harsher punishment.

      I suppose that why murder is almost unheard of in countries in the Middle East, not the fact that they publically behead a murderer and chop the hand of a thief. I so hate those that excuse criminals and attempt to justify their miserable lives. Shoot them all I say.

      That's exactly the problem. There is no rehabilitation in South African prisons, and as a matter of fact, virtually nowhere else in the world. Alot of lip service is given to rehabilitation, but very lttle is done to facilitate that. The reason , mostly I think, is the high cost involved. In highly developed countries it may work, but in countries where a large slice of the population is destitute, and people are sent to prison for petty offences, where there are hardened offenders, prison is just a training facility for future criminals.

    The fruits of poor justice

    I think we can all agree that the justice system is the one area where the constitution fails us.

    Take for example if a woman is in one cell with a rappist for one night before his parole, he'll still rape that woman even though he knows the next morning he'll be out on parole. A rapist is a rapist he'll never change. No parole for them.

      Is a rappist the same as a rapper?

    Members of the parole board must be sued in their personal capacities, for this obviously floored decision they have made.( I don't even know if they can be...... may I suggest that if a payrollee re-offends within 12 months of release on payrole, that the board should face consequences). Once again the justice system is de-valueing the lives of the innocent by abusing the true spirit of the Bill of Rights and our Constitution. I sincerely believe that a payrollee should have to work at getting back rights (which we must suspend when he is found guilty) guaranteed under the aforementioned. To suggest that the innocent and the guilty are equals is illogical, and goes against every survival instinct known to man. The sooner people reverse the often used sentiment and phrase of 'you're allowed to make mistakes' the better. I do not know who the furkin idiot was who came up with this saying but take it as gospel NOW, 'YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE MISTAKES'. You will yes, we all will, but we must all acknowledge the fact that there will be consequences, and that it is on our own shoulders that we must bear the burden. No excuses.....just don't make mistakes !.
