Woman blames cops for killing sex drive

2012-09-03 09:08

 Cape Town - A Cape Town woman has accused the police of wrecking her sex life following a raid on her house, during which she suffered an injury to her vagina.

The Daily Voice reported that the family wanted to press charges against the police but the prosecuting authority had decided not to pursue the matter.

The incident happened 12 years ago when police stormed the house of John Swanepoel and his daughter Rina, throwing gas grenades and shooting rubber bullets at the family that was accused of behaving disorderly.

Rina Swanepoel, 50, said the fly-off lever of a shock grenade flew off and injured her vagina.  

“I felt a strange feeling in my vagina and till today I have lost my sex drive.”

Swanepoel’s father was also injured in the stomach during the attack, losing his appetite and giving him unspecified stomach ailments.

“I have brought three children into the world, but now I get no feeling for a man, not even a little warmth,” said Rina.  

The whole family was suffering as a result of the incident but a police spokesperson said officials had met with the family and explained to them why their case would not be pursued.

    LOL, the fly off lever gets launched off with the spring loaded firing pin and can't hurt you anymore than someone throwing you with a piece of burnt toast...

      judith.o.stanbridge - 2012-09-03 11:19

      What I want to know how did it hit her was she sprayed open. Surely sex drive comes from the brain ?

    Um this happened 12 YEARS ago people!!! so clearly you can't point at the current police. Honestly while it is a horrible story, I can't understand why it has take so long for her to speak up, suddenly now when there is so much pressure on the SA Police ....

    WTF did I just read?!?!

      lorain.maseko - 2012-09-03 13:33

      A story about a woman who lost her sex drive and blames the police for it.

  • emilyjane.elson - 2012-09-03 10:27

    Umm.. I doubt it was anything knocking her privates that has put an end to her sex drive.. It's probably just the whole ordeal that has put a dampener (or not :-) ) on her things working properly. Trauma has strange effects on some.. Unless its just an excuse and her hubby is just really bad??

      ludlowdj - 2012-09-03 11:35

      Wrong .....if it put a dampener there wouldn't be a complaint!!

      emilyjane.elson - 2012-09-03 16:30

      The (Or Not!) is relating to the fact there's NO DAMP! Hello!!

  • gwilym.howes - 2012-09-03 10:40

    Good one gogo! I also want to sue the Tswane Municipality for loss of appetite. One day I was sitting at a restaurant minding my burger when a thick stench like rotten flesh decided to pass by; killing my appetite for burgers forever! I am watching this lady's story with interest. But at fifty, the explanation for loss of sex drive can easily be hormonal brought about by old age. As for sex drive, I think my wife was hit by a bombshell in the same area.

      Hahahahahahah! Oh man! Brightened my Monday, thanks!
