The million man march against crime was your opportunity to take a stand and just 5000 bothered to show up?!
Thousands of South Africans are being mowed down like dogs every year and the rest of you couldn’t be bothered to get off the f**king couch to spend one day protesting.
YOU DESERVE WHAT’S HAPPENING TO YOU!
I am so pissed off right now. You don’t want to help yourselves. You want to wallow in your misery, bitch and whine around braais and dinners about the crime and government but when a chance appears to have your say, you f**king idiots couldn’t be bothered!
Your actions have ensured that another 20 000 people will die this year and next year and you and yours will probably be one of the statistics.
Don’t blame the government, BLAME yourselves for the shit you are in!

Many of the people who joined the "million man march" on Tuesday expressed their disappointment in fellow South Africans for not joining the initiative.
"I am thrilled I am here, but the numbers show something of the apathy of some South Africans," said Johannesburg businessman Jeff Blunt.
Sporting a South African flag around his shoulders, he said the business community had not done enough to support the initiative.
He had given all his staff the day off to join the march.
"I would rather come here and contribute than become another whiner," he said.
Actor and comedian Desmond Dube said the government needs to take people seriously.
"The leadership needs to take people seriously. They are sending the wrong message to the country ... that people are not important," he said.
Dube is the organiser of the gathering at the Union Buildings in the city.
Dube said he was disappointed that President Thabo Mbeki would not be accepting a memorandum on behalf of government.
The aim of the gathering was to change people's mind sets and let them know they could help in the fight against crime.
Francinah Mpete of Hammanskraal said she was disappointed by the number of people who turned up for the event.
"We see this at other activities as well, such as the community policing forums," she said, adding that people should become more active in the fight against crime.
Around 5 000 people had gathered at the Union Buildings for the start of the official programme at noon.
Yolandi du Plessis of Walkerville had been robbed 14 times. This included incidents where she and then later her sister, were hijacked.
"There could have been more people here. It would have made a bigger statement," she said.
However, she said she was happy to be there and would take part again in an anti-crime protest if the opportunity arose.
