  1. Will that “baby” party also picket for this victim? They were quick to picket for those two criminals who were killed in a shootout with the police in South Ruimveldt.

    I have one simply solution for these criminals. Once you decided on a life of crime ypu have also inadvertently signed your DEATH WARRANT.
