We all came together to condemn the killing of Fulbright student Amy Biehl many years ago. We went on and condemned the killing of Communist Chris Hani years ago. But recently we have been divided on what punishment is suitable for the killers of Gito Baloi, Lucky Dube, Baby Jordan, SAPS members, Lee Matthews and others. Why?
The racist little cockroach (I refuse to accept that animals deserve names) that found humour in snuffing four (race not important) people at a settlement in Skierlik earlier this year has finally reaped a whirlwind.
The little killer has been sentenced to four life sentences and 64-years incarceration. Quite a fitting punishment for a pre-meditated crime of hate which psychologist Dr Irma Labuschagne said the motive goes without questioning. She argued that the beast can be rehabilitated but that’s a story for the Parole Board.
However what I find very deafening is the silence of the Death Penalty Brigade, NGOs, and opposition parties in this instance. Those who picket some court appearances, lobby government and even threaten to emigrate to Israel, United Kingdom and Australia if the death penalty is not brought back to mitigate farm killings, suburban break-ins, car-hijackings and other crimes that target people who are either better-off or of a lighter tone’s tongue has suddenly been stolen by a cat.
If the farmers unions believe in ‘an eye for an eye’, let them come out now and demand that this little nameless cockroach be hanged as well. Let them threaten to emigrate if it’s not guillotined. The advocacy must be consistent otherwise some people might start accusing the whole bunch of racism, demanding the noose only when it’s a black on white crime.
For the pale little nameless raceless (no race or animal species, apologies to coackroaches, deserves to have this animal associated with it) coackroach, we wish it a thick cucumber-size infected penis up its rectum as its introduction to C-Max.
