JCPS considers releasing report on reasons for cruelty in crime


It's just that it's so bloody overdue.


****

A report by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation into the reasons for the violent nature of crime has been completed. The Minister of Police, Nathi Mthetwa, has now replied to a written question in Parliament of Mr. Pieter Groenewald (MP) of the Freedom Front Plus.

According to the answer, the report is being considered by the Cabinet Committee on Justice, Crime Prevention and Security (JCPS).

“This investigation has been outstanding for a very long time because the previous Minister of Safety and Security, Mr. Charles Nqakula, had already in September 2006 ordered an investigation into this issue. The cruelty with which some violent crimes are perpetrated is very disconcerting and the reasons for it are very important in order to act preventatively. The full report must be made known to the public and should not be edited by the Cabinet Committee. The Minister should also explain what the reason for the delay is in publicising the report”, Mr. Pieter Groenewald (MP), chief spokesperson on Police for the Freedom Front Plus says.

Groenewald has already submitted a follow-up question in Parliament in which the Minister of Police is asked whether the comprehensive report will be made known and when this will happen.

In the meantime, Mr. Jaco Mulder, FF Plus MPL and Provincial leader in Gauteng, said in a statement that uncontrolled influx from across the boarders of South Africa and total freedom of movement within South Africa, gives a free pass to intended criminals. South Africans are at the mercy of criminals who can move around freely in residential areas and farm areas and do some scouting. It disadvantages the SAPS’ already poor crime intelligence even more.

“The human rights culture which is being propagated in South Africa can only be of value in a society where people respect each other’s rights. South Africa is however not such a country. We have already seen that the state fails the constitution of the country and can not guarantee the safety of its citizens. The FF Plus demands that the government enforces access control into South Africa from its neighbouring countries and restrict the freedom of movement of loiterers”, Mulder added.

“The government is sacrificing us for a dream which through their own doing has turned into a nightmare.”

“The human rights culture which is being propagated in South Africa can only be of value in a society where people respect each other’s rights. South Africa is however not such a country".
Such a simple statement, but packed with explanatory power second to none, for those with eyes to see.

Three years in the making and they won't release the report. I can save them the trouble. The reason is black culture is geared towards raising savages with no thought for their fellow man. So simple. Blacks are merely resuming what they were doing before the white man rudely interrupted them and kept them apart.
