South Africa: Where Corruption, Rape and Murder Are Normal The unthinkable is now reality. Only in Africa? Robert Morley, The Trumpet October 2013 I met a woman from South Africa the other day. What she said shocked me. “Not long ago, I thought I was going to get raped and murdered by the police.” What? She was on her way home to her acreage in a farming community outside Johannesburg when she approached a four - way stop. “This intersection is known for ca rjackings,” she said. “No one stops. You just slow down enough to make sure you are not going to hit anyone, and keep going. “You know what happens to people who get carjacked?” she asked. I had a vague idea, I thought. But I actually didn’t have a clue. The next thing she knew, flashing lights appeared in her rearview mirror. It was the reservist police basically volunteer police officers. “There was no way I was stopping,” she said. “Even if it really was the police, who knows what they might have don e to me.” She stomped on the gas. “Up where I live, when the police try to pull you over, you just head for the nearest police station and hope you make it.” She didn’t. She was rammed off the road. “Lucky I was driving a big truck,” she said matter - of - fa ctly. “I kept going.” She phoned to confirm that the police were real, and to let someone else know what was going on and to come and find her. Then she pulled to a stop. And she went from being a motorist on the way home to a woman alone in a field with a bunch of armed, angry men yelling at her and telling her she was going to jail. “Do you know what happens to white girls in jail?” she asked. Thankfully, she didn’t go to jail, and she didn’t get attacked in the field. And it was a good thing after all that she didn’t make it to the police station either; she later learned that the one she was headed for was one of the “bad” ones. “So many of the police are thugs and cr iminals,” she said. “You can’t trust them. And you don’t even know if they really are the police. People steal police cars. They have uniforms, and even bulletproof vests. Then you see it on the news, women brutally raped and murdered, or tortured.” Yes, b y police officers. “People are raped all the time,” she said. “It is part of the culture.” The mainstream media report regularly on atrocities in Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria. We rarely hear about South Africa. But what is happening there is deeply troub ling for a number of reasons. It also holds some powerful lessons for those of us who live elsewhere.
