Some want to call it vigilantism - BUT IS IT?
When a child is raped - or a man is murdered - or an old woman tortured and the perpetrators meet swift justice and retribution.
WHAT IS THAT?
Is that the backlash from a society that is sick and tired of being victims?
Is #CITIZENJUSTICE is the next step?
The government is tasked with protecting the lives, property and rights of ALL South African citizens.
It is written in the Constitution that every member of the government has sworn to uphold.
To do this there are MANY laws that mandate that it is their DUTY to uphold the Constitution and protect the citizens of this country.
There are a number of ministerial departments that are tasked to see that this happens WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
BUT THEY ARE FAILING MISERABLY!!!
Criminality, bribery and corruption is unfortunately what is in reality happening.
And POLITICAL CRIMINALS are inciting their followers to "KILL THE BOER" and invade property on a DAILY BASIS.
Yet the government does SWEET F*ALL about it DESPITE there being CLEAR GUIDELINES on how to handle these sorts of situations.
And criminals are beating up and in a lot of cases, simply murdering the citizens of South Africa during "incidents" that are more often than not, politically and racially motivated - but never reported as such in the official reports.
Government then tries to tell us citizens that it has nothing to do with "politics" or "racism" or politicians inciting their followers to murder but it is "MERELY CRIMINAL ACTIVITY".
That right there IS AN ADMISSION by the government that THEY ARE FAILING TO CARRY OUT THEIR SWORN DUTY!!!
There seems often to be a "revolving door" of politicians, all totally unqualified, that take up positions as the top dog in for example, the Ministry of Law and Order, the Ministry of Justice and so many more and without exception they make passionate speeches promising to "fix their BROKEN departments" and all the other cr@p that they carry on and on about.
BUT NOTHING GETS FIXED !!!
ITS ALL BULL$#!T !!!
And things on the ground simply get worse while those that are supposed to be solving the problem get driiven around in "blue light brigade" convoys and whose homes and families get protected by larger and larger "security contingents" that the public have to pay for.
It seems to be a case of "F*CK YOU JACK - I'M OK".
Meanwhile on the ground the citizens get robbed, tortured and murdered on a daily basis.
Farmers get targeted.
Children, sometimes less than one year old, get raped and killed.
Women of all races get assaulted, raped or killed - some even get forced into slavery - IN SOUTH AFRICA!!!
Honest citizens have their possessions, bought with their own hard earned money, stolen.
And all we get are vague undertakings that the problems are being "investigated" and strategies are being "formulated and put into place".
AND THEN NOTHING HAPPENS!!!
The criminal activities simply carry on, getting worse EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!
Often it turns out that those that are charged with protecting the citizens are in fact themselves the criminals that are targeting the citizens - or at least not doing their jobs.
Recent reports indicate that the Western Cape is the CRIME CAPITAL PROVINCE OF SOUTH AFRICA.
Not a very good accolade is it??
Recently there was a case where the criminal was beat up and necklaced ON THE SPOT by outraged members of the community.
Criminals are starting to be beaten up - and in some cases have died on the scene of the crime - BY THEIR VICTIMS !!!
Child molesters have had to run from the wrath of the community that is trying to protect those innocent children.
And government is VERY QUICK to say that "this sort of criminal activity is UNACCEPTABLE".
That citizens who are doing the duties that GOVERNMENT IS UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO DO are to be seen as VIGILANTEES.
That it is WRONG for a citizen to ACTIVELY ENFORCE THEIR RIGHT TO LIVE IN A LAWFUL SOCIETY AND TO HOLD CRIMINALS RESPONSIBLE.
That is supposedly the "job of government" they maintain...
However government is doing a pi$$poor job - they are incapable of protecting the citizens of South Africa.
And THAT means that the citizens are having to do it themselves if they want to maintain their rights as per the Constitution.
So until government is able to do their job, these sorts of incidents will increase.
Its NOT vigilantism.......
Lets call it what it is.......
People doing what the government cant or wont do.
ENFORCING THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
