PISTORIUS CASE TAKES FRONT PAGE
WHAT does it tell you about Jacob Zuma and his presidential address when Oscar Pistorius takes every paper's front page headline?
PIET Naude, your suggestions of how JZ should run this country are spot on.
VANISHING species: Guy Rogers missed Homocivilservantus Honestcompetus. Almost extinct.
SA TROOPS FOR CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
CAR army support: we cannot fix our own problems, but will fix for others. Never fear, Jacob Zuma is near.
LET justice be done to this young life taken away tragically.
MY daughter has just qualified and is looking for a job. She has been for numerous interviews, but not even one company has even SMSed back to say her application was unsuccessful! It's disgusting! What happened to good manners?
STILL CROOKED POLICE
THERE are still a lot of crooks in the SAPS. I was involved in an accident when a drunk woman deliberately bumped into my car. Having established that I was sober as what a judge should be, I was rushed to the same hospital, which wasn't busy that day. The case was withdrawn without my knowledge, the reason being blood was drawn after two hours. I had to challenge them to reopen the case as I'm sitting without a car and hers is fixed. Sies!
JUST because you're in uniform that doesn't mean you're God. I was shocked and appalled that there are still racist white police personnel. I witnessed a scene in Sidwell where a white policeman was assaulting a man. When a woman questioned him and threatened to take a video of the assault with her phone, he just went for her, swearing and shouting. I couldn't believe it that in this day and age there's still a man in uniform with that kind of attitude. They aren't gods and something needs to be done. They are supposed to protect and uphold the law but these days we are not safe in the hands of the police. Then who's gonna protect us.

ANC BREAKS PROMISES
WHEN is the ANC going to stop promising gullible people still believing them? They haven't done anything for the 19 years except enrich themselves.
METRO STAFF WOES
POOR management, selfish politics and Samwu union domination of the municipality has destroyed morale, eliminated productivity and resulted in low quality staff appointments. Exorbitant electricity tariffs is one way of partially recovering the loss.
CHILD SEX ACCUSED 'TOO SICK FOR JAIL'
THEY weren't too ill to allegedly abuse those children, they must go to jail to rot for the rest of their lives. A leopard never changes its spots.
CHILD sex accused: the only illness they suffer from is in their evil minds. Lock them up and throw away the keys forever.
SORRY for you, your sickness did not prevent you from doing what you did, so now may you rot in jail. May the warders lose the key.
TWO men plead to be released from jail? Shouldn't they have thought of their health and fear of prison before allegedly hurting innocent children? How did the kids feel healthwise and trapped when these "men" allegedly used them like they did? The mind boggles!
I WANT these men to rot in jail. The one with sleep apnea should have thought of it before allegedly raping those innocent children and I'm also opposing bail. I want them to feel the humiliation that was felt by those kids.
DIAMOND DEALER WANTS TO BE RELEASED
IF Geil Mans is out on bail, the rest of St Albans will soon want the same. Is this the latest ploy for prisoners to get out of jail? That's why crime is so rife.
BHISHO TAKES OVER METRO ADMINISTRATION
BHISHO to take over the running of the metro? What a joke! Those okes couldn't organise a "you know what" in a house of ill repute!
IT sounds like the blindest is going to lead the blinder! Disaster ahead!
TRAFFIC DEPARTMENT INCOMPETENCE
TRAFFIC cops can fill a ticket book in 30 minutes. Taxis stop on red lines, on pedestrian crossings, at green traffic lights daily, at the entrance to Boardwalk next to the Beach Hotel in the inbound lane.
WELL said, Ed Gutsche! It's a disgrace – lazy incompetent staff. The traffic department head will never have the guts to take you up on your offer.
HAMILTON Totoyi, could you please reply to Ed Gutsche's letter.
GREAT letter, Ed Gutsche. Nail on the head. We desperately need a very visible traffic department who will take their jobs extremely seriously.
WELL said, Mr Gutsche. Chief traffic officer Hamilton Totoyi should have been fired long ago along with his lazy and incompetent comrades.

DOGS ARE PUREBRED, NOT THOROUGHBRED
SHORTAGE of thoroughbred dogs in police force: perhaps they are looking for horses. Dogs are purebred not thoroughbred.
