    Subject: Fw: Please make sure that lots of people get this ”

    PLEASE READ
    I used to love South Africa, I used to say I’d never leave… my
    rose-tinted glasses were shattered last month!

    - Monday morning my mom was driving to work when she hit a pedestrian.
    - the pedestrian seemed fine, however, the other black people started
    stoning my mom’s car.
    - she has a witness, a man who hooted at her to go – then followed her to
    the closest garage and told my mom to go to the police
    - my mom was so upset, she then got my brother to take her to the police
    station to make a statement
    - the superintendent at the station took the statement and told my mom not
    to worry, seeing as the pedestrian was fine and hadn’t come forward with a
    charge, nothing would come of it
    - my mom went to work – only to have a police van full of officers pitch
    at her office to arrest her!
    - As she hysterically tried to call me to say they were taking her to
    Roodepoort Police Station, they took her phone from her and simply threw
    her into the van. On route to the station they asked my mom for a bribe,
    my mom never had cash on her – then they all started laughing at her and
    told her what a useless white she is.
    - I raced to the police station and immediately got hold of a lawyer….
    the lawyer was furious!
    - There was no charge! no pedestrian! and yet my mother was thrown in a
    cell – with a convict!
    - the convict told my mom she organised for other convicts to be let into
    the cell to rape and beat my mom that night
    - when fingerprints were taken my mom asked for some toilet paper and was
    told to wipe her hands on her effing hand bag!
    When I was at the police station I was treated with total disregard by the
    black police officers – who looked at me like something someone scraped
    off the bottom of their shoe!

    Long story short, this entire nightmare cost four thousand rand in lawyer
    fees and bail to get my mom out. The lawyer knew to act quickly to ensure
    that my mom did not stay in overnight. The case was thrown out of court on
    Tuesday morning, as there was no case! My mom was put through hell and
    back by our joke of a police force – who should surely to God use their
    manpower where it’s so desperately needed in our country.

    My lawyer confirmed that white people are being victimised. The theory is
    that we have the money to waste on bribes and bail!
    Please ensure that you have the number of a lawyer… the police aim to
    keep you in jail for at least one night – they only need one night to get
    you raped and beaten by other convicts – so that they got their revenge
    against whites.

    My mom is terrorised and currently undergoing counseling…And simply
    wants to forget the whole thing. But I refuse to let more people be
    victimised by an institution that’s supposed to protect us!

    ALWAYS HAVE A LAWYERS NUMBER – and warn everyone you know to keep the
    number of a lawyer handy, as you have to act speedily to avoid staying
    even one night! (we’ve all heard scary stories about traffic officers
    arresting people without the necessary legal documents)

    Racism is an ugly thing South Africans are trying hard to get rid of, yet
    racism against white people is so clearly evident.
    God help us… let’s pray we don’t end up like Zim, as our government and
    law enforcement seem set on sending us in the same direction!
