farkplug: Gyrfalcon: AliceBToklasLives: Is there anyone is South Africa NOT up on a murder charge?Only the victims.And let's see, the 39.5+ millions of people who live there and do not become a part of the annual 'murderers' statistic?I know you were both partly joking but the reality is that violence and crime has definitely gone up since the ANC took power almost 20 years ago, but now we also have factors like nearby Zimbabwe going down the tubes with lots and lots of starving migrants from there crossing the southern border on foot and running to South Africa because it is relatively wealthy and normal. There is still a lot to like about the place, especially if you WERE Oscar Pistorius: successful, young, rich, famous, and living in a secure compound, in a home with an excellent alarm system and three large dogs. He might have been trigger happy because he felt he was a target, but that aside, I know South Africans who live in homes with just the locks on their windows and doors to protect them and they are some of the most upbeat, funniest, and nicest people I've met.
