      David, I think we are very privileged to have you, a behavioural expert to analyse and put things in perspective for news24 readers. What is your expert view on this article? More pointedly, is this the "African Way, European Way"? Addict guilty of killing adoptive parents 2011-11-03 08:48 Jeanne-MariƩ Versluis, Beeld Johannesburg - An 18-year-old drug addict who murdered his parents, claimed in court on Wednesday that his mother had told him before the incident that she regretted adopting him. Schalk du Plooy was found guilty in the Delmas Circuit Court on Wednesday of killing Schalk, 52, and Theresa du Plooy, 51 - both pharmacists. They were killed in their home in Dunnottar on December 6 last year. He admitted guilt, and also said he smoked dagga daily in the Nigel prison.

      Herman, after waiting for almost 5 long hours for our expert david's opinion, I am losing hope of ever learning more on this topic my brother. Or perhaps david could still be conducting some research :)

    We live in the murder capital of the world. What a pathetic people we have become? This is when I agree with people when they say Botha was better because people were scared to commit crimes like this. I do miss Botha's bad ways of running this country sometimes.
