SA Police lost 20,000 guns

_51594267_policeThere you have it.  Citizens owning legal firearms are being disarmed by law, while the South African Police lost 20,000 firearms since 2004.  Now “lost” here can mean many things.  Anything from drunken cops leaving their guns in the local shebeen to corrupt cops selling firearms voluntarily handed in by legal gun owners.

The police described the report as “worrying” – not incompetent, corrupt, inept, but worrying.  The best part – no report of how many officials have been criminally prosecuted as a result (as required by law).  If this doesn’t stink of communist regime to you, you probably won’t notice a turd on your upper lip.

Annelize van Wyk of the ANC said that laws “seemed” to be stricter for civilians than police officers.  More communist wordplay – “seemed” to be.  Annelize, just remove that turd from your lip.

Diane Kohler Barnard of the Democratic Alliance said that “I am convinced that many murders are committed with police weapons”.  She is correct of course.  This is of course over and above the crimes committed by cops themselves, with around 10,000 of them in jail.

Ja. Ja. Ja. I know. For 3 years in the SADF I never managed to lose 1 weapon. And I was in charge of 70 men. WTF are these kaffirs doing? How in the hell can you lose 20K weapons - WEAPONS - DEADLY DEVICES DESIGNED TO KILL ? ? ?

We never had a system. We just had a sign-off sheet with a weapons serial number next to a troopies name and his BG number and a signature indicating HE received it and another one indicating that he gave it back.

If it was to go missing - a quick check would tell us if person X had weapon Y and we could then find out WTF happened to it.

Simple effective, but obviously beyond the ability of the cream of SA's finest to implement. I think they just could not be arsed to take the ten seconds it would use up to implement a simple but effective system because the opposite of effective is kaffir-geid.

FUBAR ! ! !

Its difficult to differentiate between Cops and Criminals, not a good sign for coming future.
