Tell me there is nothing sinister going on with white farmer killings

Correct me if I'm wrong but why are black farmers not being targeted like this?

What have we traded off here? A productive member of society, a rare breed of individual (I consider farmers gifted people), still in his prime ready to contribute to society as his record indicates he had done. Someone fully participating in the so-called new South Africa versus two scum-sucking black savages with nothing to contribute to society but mayhem.

But you know what, this murder is mentioned, it's will be forgotten but woe betide if Joost is off somewhere shagging or some blokes pull a dumb prank on blacks. Now THAT is news, stuff to be splashed across the front pages for months on end. This farm murder, atop another 3000 plus murders ...? *yawn*

Farmer shot without warningPietermaritzburg - Opening a door to let out the family dog has cost the life of a well-known former senior government official and farmer.
Warwick Antony Dorning, 55, of the farm Adamshurst near Howick’s Mpophomeni area, was shot and killed in his home at about 20:00 on Saturday. His wife, Dawn, was not injured.

Dorning recently took early retirement from his post as Chief of Staff in the Office of the Premier.

Peter Miller, former Finance MEC and a long-time associate and family friend, said two armed men entered the house through a bedroom door onto the verandah that was open for the dog.

Dawn Dorning was in the room and screamed when the two burst in. Dorning, who was in the kitchen getting a bedtime snack, ran to the bedroom where he was shot in the head as he entered, “stone dead, in cold blood, without warning,” said Miller.

The men threatened Dawn and demanded money before moving into the house where they also threatened Dorning’s mother, 85-year-old Noo, who lives in a wing of the main house.

Disturbed by phone

Evidence found by police suggests that the men had started to remove the plasma TV when they were disturbed by a phone call from Dorning’s sister, Nicola Nielsen. She lives in a cottage on the property with her partner, Patrick Sinclair.

They had heard the single shot, and they phoned the main house.

The men fled on foot, taking Dorning’s wallet, two cell phones and, according to police, a DStv decoder and a video player.

The police were called and they found a 9 mm cartridge and a spent bullet on the scene. A case of house robbery and murder has been opened.
KwaZulu-Natal Agricultural Union (Kwanalu) CEO, Sandy La Marque, said the union noted “with shock, anger and regret the callous murder of Dr Dorning. He was a well-respected resident".

“Kwanalu cannot but note the escalation in criminal violence against rural properties recently.

While noting that much comment has been made about rights violations against farm workers, we as an organisation are gravely concerned with the violation of basic human rights of all residents on farms, particularly, at this time, farmers and landowners.
