SA cops raid Afrikaans school: find some cigarettes

Kids found with a few cigarettes were ‘dealt with…’ – SAPS says

March 3, 2012: The ANC-regime’s ongoing criminalisation of the Afrikaners continues. This time it was decided to carry out an armed police-raid against the Afrikaans-medium High School in the working-class town of Boksburg: and while the SAPS’only found some cigarettes’, they said they ‘dealt with’ these children…  Representatives from the provinice’s ‘Community Safety Dept’ also were on hand while the personal belongings of 350 children were searched.

The policing-authorities claimed that ‘some injection needs were found in one of the bathrooms but there were no specific people around at the time of the discovery… ’  The authorities did not apologise for the raid, claiming that ‘the children” (with the cigarettes) were “dealt with and their parents contacted by the school.’

South Africa is one of the most criminal countries in the world, where huge, heavily-armed crime gangs rule the streets and the cops increasingly join them – where tons of illegal narcotic drugs are traded each month, where armed gangs even kidnap children from the streets to turn them into sex-slaves and ship them to brothels.

Yet the SAPS found it absolutely necessary to raid a working-class Afrikaans high school at gunpoint, and undertake searches of 350 pupils’ belongings.  And when they find a few schoolboys with harmless, ordinary, non-narcotic cigarettes, these children are treated as common criminals —  for doing what schoolboys all over the world have been doing for the past two centuries: sneaking a few cigarettes…

Later two other police vehicles pull up and the officers get out and proceed in further assaulting the man.Fritz Kraemer, a resident in the street who witnessed the whole attack and says, “The man shouting, for what,  for what? The officers just kept on hitting him and a pulled his feet out from under him causing him to fall. “It doesn’t matter what the man did, there is no reason to be beaten up like that. I shouted at the police to stop, but they said I must go to the police station if I have a problem.”

The CCTV cameras that captured the entire assault are situated in Johan van Dalen’s yard.  Van Dalen says, “We do not want to go to the police station and show them the footage because we are scared they will lock us up to cover this up.” The NEWS contacted the spokesman of the Krugersdorp Police, Captain Jacob Raboroko for comment who said that he would send through comment as soon as possible.
