Cape Town - Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato warned people that hurting or killing a police officer was a crime against the state, during an anti-crime walkabout in Philippi on Thursday.

"You are committing a crime against the state and you will be punished," said Plato, through a wireless microphone, with a huge sound system on a bakkie driving ahead of him.
