You are all aware of the story about the Johannesburg shooting tragedy.
Oscar Pistorius ?
Before you judge this man, let me tell you what happened to me,in early 1970.
I was staying in a similar type of house in jo-burg.
During the middle of the night, shots rang out within the house, my bedroom walls developed three bullet holes, not a good sight to see in the middle of the night.
I pick up my hand gun in fear, cocked it and called out, as everybody in the house did, after a quick check my friend said "his mother had not replied" so we all rushed to her room, she was standing in the middle of the room crying with a hand gun and a black man was laying on her bed dead, from a gunshot wound to the head. She had survived what you could only call her lifetime nightmare.
She had fired at him through the bathroom door, not so different to this case? Her bullets passing through the building could have killed any of us?
Now I don't know if this is murder or a tragic accident. Who does? before the trial?
But to the closed minds of the world press, who have made up their own minds and see this as a good opportunity to put the South African Courts under pressure, voicing their own opinions laced with their racial undertones.and unwarranted pressures and possible corrupting a fair judgement.
Johannesburg has had the highest murder rate in the world for many years now, and more than likely still has?
So if you're a Black or White person and you work in jo-burg,
You're going to have a house with bars and walls around it and still have a high chance of being burgled and violently assaulted.
They always seem to find a way in! and on the average the women are raped and cruelly murdered.
Can you imagine living your whole life with that fear in your mind, in your own home? with your children? I think not?
It's the same fear that has created Safe rooms in some places in the rest of the world
All I say is: keep an open mind.
be well Agman
