Thief gets 20 years

In what has to be the Facebook post of the day if not the month is the news SA Police Detective Captain Johan du Toit’s success in finally having a habitual criminal put away for 20 years. Sadly he will will probably be out to continue his thieving ways in five years or so years but hopefully other magistrates will start to follow suit with harsh sentences that will support police efforts in keeping criminals off our streets.
