CCTV cameras mounted on a house roof in Hillcrest, on the eastern seaboard of the South African coast, have captured a vicious panga attack on a white family by black criminals.
South Africa’s notoriously high black crime rate is famous across the world, but this dramatic incident has highlighted the dangers of the situation once again.
The house which was attacked is a fairly typical upper-middle class residence in South Africa—complete with electronic gates, electrified wire fences, and CCTV cameras.
None of these precautions was however enough to prevent the black criminals from gaining entrance to the property and attacking its owner, Ryan Sutherland, and his family.
Sutherland is also a fairly typical white liberal English-speaking South African, who in the video below, pathetically mumbles on about how he was “always an optimist” about South Africa and claims to still be one (!) but then immediately declares his intention to leave the country.
Around 50 people are murdered in South Africa each day, a steady increase over the past 40 years.
The incidence of rape has led to the country being referred to as the “rape capital of the world.” One in three of the 4,000 women questioned by the Community of Information, Empowerment, and Transparency said they had been raped and more than 25 percent of black South African men questioned in a survey published by the Medical Research Council (MRC) in June 2009 admitted to rape; of those, nearly half said they had raped more than one person. Three out of four of those who had admitted rape indicated that they had attacked for the first time during their teens.
South Africa has one of the the highest incidences of child and baby rape in the world.
South Africa also has a record number of car hijackings. A South African insurance company, Hollard Insurance, stated in 2007 that they would no longer insure Volkswagen Citi Golfs manufactured in the previous two years as they were one of the most frequently hijacked vehicles in South Africa. For many years, car manufacturer BMW has had to provide its own insurance because commercial insurers either refuse to cover the vehicles or the costs are astronomically high.
