  1. gd we need more of those i’m just hoping that the POLICE OFFICE OF PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY CID HEADQUARTERS look at my story in a professional way and c to it that i get some justice soon being hit down by a drunk driver where the police at Vreed en Hoop did a sloppy job plus the man was freed without even pleading or appearing in the court although arrest warrant was out for him . How can a matter be struck out of court without the the accused ever appearing and plead ?

  2. (Hot oil or Prison banngles) Ali Baba and the forty thieves did not get the chance like these looser ,they had Hot Oil/ but these looser will get Prison bangles

  3. Kill these vermin and do the society a favor. They are a bunch of lazy blood suckers whose only mission is to take what others work for something they are too sweet skinned to do. If you tell them about work they will suffer a nervous break down. Take them out of their misery- Kill them before they do the same to another hard working innocent person.
