In South Africa, the cops are also robbers [and gang members]

SHOOT: This isn't the first article on the topic of corrupt cops. If our top cop Selebi is accused of corruption, how can you expect that that rottenness hasn't infected the meat of most of the rest of the Force? You can't. If you don't solve the problem of corrupt police you can expect your country to become a banana republic. And who decides what standards should be applied to our police? Our leaders. And who chooses our political leaders?
