Robbers Get More Than They Demanded


We don't get to read stories like this often enough.


Three "wanted" men who allegedly tried to rob a family of 14 holidaymakers, including seven children, at a Pennington resort got more than they bargained for when their victims and neighbours retaliated and shot one robber dead and seriously injured the other two this week.

Police have linked the suspects to five other serious crimes in the South Coast area, including one in which a young girl was shot and another incident where six students were robbed while on holiday.

The incident took place at about 11pm on Tuesday when the group of relatives who had rented a cottage in Beefwood Road were allegedly attacked and robbed by three balaclava-clad men.

SAPS police spokesman Capt Vincent Pandaram said the attackers used a homemade firearm.

"The adults in the family were seated around a table in the lounge and the children were in another room when the three suspects entered through the back door. One was armed with a home-made revolver while the other two were armed with knives."

They held up the family members who were in the lounge and demanded guns and money, said Pandaram.

"The victims were herded into the adjacent garage where they were robbed of their possessions. They are all family and relatives from Creighton in southern KZN. There was also one member who had emigrated to Australia and had come to the South Coast on holiday."

Pandaram said a neighbouring family, also holiday-makers in a rented cottage, noticed the balaclava-clad gang and realised that something was wrong.

"Two of the neighbours decided to investigate what was going on next door and as they approached the house, the suspects allegedly turned on them. A shot was fired, hitting the lounge wall and the neighbour returned fire."

As result a suspect was shot and wounded in the back while a second was shot dead. The third suspect attacked a 71-year-old pensioner with a knife. The man fought back, disarmed the suspect and stabbed him with the same knife in the back.

The two wounded suspects were attended to by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital. A home-made revolver and knives were seized by police, who also recovered the stolen property.

Charges of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition as well as robbery have been opened for investigation by the Scottburgh SAPS Detective Services.

Pandaram said the suspects have been sought by police for various other serious crimes in the area.

Well done especially to the 71 year old who disarmed one scum bag (probably 50 his junior)and zapped him one in the back, three cheers and a hooray. As our chief of police says kill before you are killed. Better make hey while the sun shines boys because after world cup it's back to normal.

A good way to start off the New Year, a dead kaffir!

Good that this focusses on the good news. People are apt to accuse ILSA as fearmongers that only tell the bad news.

Aah, what a nice way to start 2010 - a dead kaffir.

That's one of the ways to put an end to the killing of white people by these bastards! We all should constantly carry our guns and be ready and able to re-act instantly by killing the bastards. They must take note that they won't receive any mercy from the white public and that the chances of them getting killed are greater than the killing of their victims.

Now let me guess. The people who shot them in self defence get arrested for murder? The bastards who attacked them now sue them for damages.

What a fucked up world!

DAMN! Why were ANY of the bastards allowed to survive?! When you have to kill a few kaffirs, don't bother to call the police, dispose of the scum and go about your business as if nothing had occurred!
