A man is assaulted with machete in front of kids going to school in Sea Vista, a man dragged from his truck and beaten to death for being a foreigner as mobs burn and loot shops, even a car dealership in Johannesburg. Similar scenes played out in Pretoria last week and again yesterday. Cape Town student abducted, raped and beaten to death with a scale in a post office. A six-year old kidnapped from outside her school with a R2 million ransom on her head???

Two weeks ago we mourned the senseless murder of a gentleman who did nothing but good for our community and a shocking and unnecessary assault on his elderly defenseless wife. The mayhem cause by these savages goes on unrelenting with seemingly no way of stopping it.

Last year an elderly St Francis man was badly beaten by robbers in St Francis Bay. Recently his attacker walked free because his attorney was able turn the tables on the victim and set his client free. South African law dictates that everyone if considered not guilty until proved otherwise but surely that applies to people, to human beings not savages. These savages that murder and rape whether their victims are the aged, women or children, they show no mercy, no feelings or humanity so humanity should show them no mercy. No defense and life behind bars, better still life at the end of a rope.

It’s not because they are poor, or that they never had opportunity or lack of education and it’s not because of apartheid. It is because they are savages with no conscience or empathy, even for their own families who they will assault and rob and kill  as easily as they will a stranger.

 Incarceration does nothing to get them change their ways and it simply a waste of taxpayers’ money for you cannot rehabilitate a savage. Sadly our justice system seems intent passing lenient sentence that sees these savages back on the streets in next to no time to continue to terrorise and wreak havoc on their the communities. Why do we not pass sentences as they do in the United States, three strikes and you are out? Life in prison without possibility of parole!

Some people call these savages animals. Please don’t do that! Animals kill to protect or to eat, they don’t kill for fun or rape their own. Don’t besmirch our wildlife by comparing them to this scum of the earth.  

In an interview on Charl Leslie’s Sitdown Show on AlgoaFM last Sunday he asked his guest, South Africa’s first black woman to take command of an air force base (Port Elizabeth) and the first black woman air force helicopter pilot, his weekly question “if you were president for a day”? Her answer was “bring back the death penalty”! Plain and simple and without hesitation.

Now as those all human rightist choke on their post toasties saying it won’t stop the murder and rape. Well yes it will! Those perpetrators sentenced to death and hung by their necks will never murder, rape or molest a woman or child again. That is an absolute guarantee and the world will be better off with one less savage.
