Police State: bring it on
Jo’burg metro police have upped the intensity of their spot searches for traffic offenders who have failed to pay fines, or who have warrants outstanding for their arrest. Earlier this year there were random roadblocks to check licences, and now they’re surprising people in restaurants. Over 500 people have been arrested. On friday night, during the spot raids they arrested 4 illegal immigrants and someone in possession of drugs. Good for them, you say, it’s about time the police in this country got off their butts and started to do something.
At least, that’s what you’d say if you were sane. But it seems that restaurant-goers are in an outrage over this. Why? Your meal got disturbed for a short while, and five criminals got arrested. These same people bitch and moan about the police not doing anything when they get mugged or hijacked or broken into, but when the police do something, heaven forbid it should disturb your meal or cause you discomfort in any sort of way. If i had been there, i would have applauded as they detained said criminals and marched them out of the restaurant.
People keep saying it’s an invasion of privacy. What?? You’re in a public place, idiot. Any policeman can stop you in the street and ask you to produce your ID, just like any TV Licence Inspector can ask you to produce your licence, and even ask you to allow them to enter your home to check if you have a TV. You don’t have to co-operate, but why wouldn’t you? The only reason not to co-operate with a policeman doing his duty is if you have something to hide. how much effort does it take to say ‘No problem, officer, here’s my ID. No, no, thank you, and keep up the good work!’
Fucking retards. Complain when the police don’t do their job, complain when they do. You should all just choke.
56 heads would have exploded today if i had the power. Count yourselves lucky.
