Every day up to 35 cars is hijacked in South Africa. The brazen robbers are almost always connected to syndicates who place orders for particular makes of vehicles. The car hijackers locate the vehicle required by the syndicate and make an attempt to steal the car as quickly as possible.
Are the South African police involved in criminal activities? There are so many good reports across the media of how the police capture criminals and confiscate stolen property, including unlicensed firearms and hauls of drugs. It is commendable that the police are doing a respectable job of cleaning up the streets of South Africa. There is, of course, the intimidation and corruption that lurks in every government department and the police service is not exempt from these activities. However much the police do to rid South Africa of criminals, they are also responsible for keeping criminals actively involved in crime.
The South African police appear to have participated in a car hijacking in Mtubatuba, KwaZulu-Natal. The video shows the police vehicle parked at the entrance watching events unfold. The police watch how a white golf motor car is moved and then reversed to let the robbers get out with the stolen car. The make of the stolen car is unknown although the color of the vehicle is blue.
Shortly after the hijackers ride away in the stolen vehicle, the police drive through the entrance and speak to the people who notify them about a hijacking. The police do not take notes, they just drove away.
Whether the police are actively involved or not, in this video it would appear that they did not assist the victims of crime but rather allowed another criminal to get away and commit more crimes.
