Monday, September 1

But it is Monday,so... Apparently there is method in the madness of denying us access to crime statistics.

Between January 2000 and March 2002, there were almost 48 000 murders in South Africa. In the same period, approximately 27 000 murders were referred to court, of which only 4 760 ended with convictions.

In America there were 16 110 murders in 2002. We beat that handily with a few thousand too spare. When you consider there are 6 times as many people in America then in South Africa our crime wave becomes a slaughter. About 60 people a day are is being murdered in SA, with only 1 in 10 murderers ever being convicted.

Perhaps the african potato will help with this problem.
