    Wuudy! Woo! We burnt a statue! I suppose burning and damaging statues will improve education, healthcare, housing, food, cost of living and poverty in general, the police must think so they don’t seem to want to take any action to prevent this!

    I think no one has anything to say about the police clearly out numbered and out gunned Police Watch in Suspense..

    If they had proper Rifles like it should be with rubber bullets in every station maybe then our police would enjoy there line of work simply because they can Really protect and prevent correctly.

    Let he that can stand as two against a crowd with weapons throw the first stone …

    I think the Police here should be fired for not doing their job.

    Nothing but a bunch of barbarians! As for the poor excuse for police that made NO effort to apprehend the perpetrators, hope you get punished to the full extent of the law that you are supposed to uphold along with your EFF buddies that destroyed the statue for NO reason. Has their life changed in any way since they burned the statue? NO!!!

      Cops was probably told not to do anything. The EFF and ANC is working together on this issue. Have you heard or seen any ANC members talk about this or trying to interfere – “NO”. Old communist trick and if the people can’t see what is happening then they deserve whatever they get.The world can now experience the monster that they and the national party created. Viva FW, waar is jou wigte en teen wigte wat ons vir maande na moes luister.
