1. I demand ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.28.13)
... that the United Nations immediately call for a transparent investigation.
2. No race card here
Mark ,   U.S.   (02.28.13)
These people are pitifull. It is sad that independence has not improved these peoples lives and the hatred of themselves. South Africa,,,,,,, a joke of all time,,,,, maybe the taxi driver was drunk off of Mandella wine.
3. Horrific Violence in South Africa
DavidM ,   USA   (02.28.13)
If this horrific violence took place in Israel it would be world wide news and the United Nations would have an emergency meeting to condemn it. Because it is not Israel it barely makes a ripple in the news and will be forgotten tomorrow. There will be no flotilla or hunger strike to assist the Mozambiquans treated so brutally in South Africa. Meanwhile South African university professors are too busy inciting against Israel to notice the murder of the Mozambiquan taxi driver..
4. Apartheid was better and everyone knows it
Sean ,   Phoenix   (02.28.13)
Who knew turning a country over to Marxists illiterates would result in its steady ruin? Who could have predicted that? The crime rate has exploded. Incomes have gone down. The AIDS rate is what? 20% of the adult population. The government shoots 35 miners to death and then drags a man behind a car on camera. The former president Mbeki is an unpunished rapist. But no, no no we have to teach children in schools that Mandela is a golden god and South Africa is much better off than when it was run competently by whites. Also we have to pretend that Rhodesia (which used to be the breadbasket grain exporter of Africa) is better off as Zimbabwe under Mugabe (which is a disaster area which relies on food aid).
5. Where's the EU UN and Human Rights Watch?
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.01.13)
at the international house of donuts?
6. Sarah, You are kidding...
Walt K ,   Sherbrooke, Canada   (03.01.13)
A crime commit by a black on a black means nothing... If the victim was an arab... it would be different.
7. Sean,
Walt K ,   Sherbrooke, Canada   (03.01.13)
But, the Apartheid era let several millions of blacks uneducated and very poor. Lot still lived into horrible conditions... Did you think that every blacks would have become fit to take the destiny of the South Africa into few years ?
8. #1
joemoer ,   israel   (03.01.13)
i second that demand...lets see katherine asston telling us this is 'worrying' ...a full united nations investigation is needed And while your at it asston ..why dont you and you little friends in europe investigate the 60,000+ deaths in syria or is that not 'worrying' enough
9. To: Walt at No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.01.13)
Sad, isn't it? It appears to have happened over 800 times in the past several years. The United Nations must have a sliding scale of values.
10. To: Sean at No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.01.13)
You are so correct. Especially about Rhodesia, which at one time was the "breadbasket" of Africa. These days, Zimbabwe imports grain to feed its starving populace. How sad.
