"This is what a white c*nt looks like afte we f*cked him up"
This is how Mpumalanga traffic "officers" bragged after they seriously assaulted the 42 year old farmer from Grootvlei.
Mr. Rikus Ras' two todlers went histerical while about ten traffic "officers" assaulted their father.
Little Heinrich (2) and Rikus (3) was with their father when he was stopped by the traffice "officers" at a t-junction.
"I have never in my life been so humiliated and afraid for my life. Fearing the very people who were 'appointed to protect the public'..." he said.
One of the traffice "officers" told Mr Ras that his one brakelight was deffective. Mr Ras got out of his car and checked the light. An argument started and the traffic "officer" started pushing Mr Ras around and head-butted him.
Mr Ras informed him that he was going to lay a charge at the police station for the assault.
He then drove of towards the town to go to the police station.
A couple of kilometers further he was forced off the road by 4 traffic police vehicles.
That was when all hell broke loose. One of them tried to break his window while another was choking him through the back window of his pickup truck. One of the "officers" sprayed teargas into the cab of the vehicle.
Two of Ras'workers who were on the vehicle pulled the children through the window and ran away with them for their own safety.
The traffic "officers" dragged him from the vehicle, swore at him, made racist remarks and assaulted him.
He was handcuffed and taken to the police station where he was charged with assault, crimen injuria, and refusing to comply with an order from a traffic "officer".
He was later taken to the Grootvlei police station where he laid charges against the "officers" and he was released on a warning - no bail required.
Mr. Joseph Mabuza, spokesman for the department of safety and security confirmed the incident.
Lt.Col. Leonard Hlathi, polic spokesman confirmed that they are invstigating the case.
