If the police are no longer allowed to shoot to protect property, how did all these people die? We await the findings of 337 inquests, but the wheels of the SAPS and the ‘justice’ system will no doubt grind so slowly that we’ll have forgotten about this massacre in five years. Must be time for yet another commission of inquiry headed by a retired judge anxious to boost his/her meagre pension!

Will be the same as Life esedimedi.

If you play with matches, you will get burned.

so some of the looters also used guns on civilians?
