‘Spy tapes’: Zuma fears DA

No Fear No Favours No Zuma..........

July 31 2014 at 01:36pm 

Bloemfontein - President Jacob Zuma wants to keep his communications with the NPA in the so-called spy tapes case secret because the DA could use them against him, his lawyers argue.
In papers filed at the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA), Zuma argues his vigilance in the matter is because the Democratic Alliance is the entity seeking disclosure.
Zuma is appealing against a High Court in Pretoria decision, ordering acting National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Nomgcobo Jiba to hand over a copy of certain tapes. The matter will be heard in the SCA on August 15.
The tapes, transcripts, and other documents relate to a decision the NPA took in 2009 to drop corruption charges against Zuma.
In papers filed as part of the appeal, Zuma maintains his representations to the NPA were made on a confidential basis.
Zuma contends that as president, political leader, and member of the African National Congress, he would be the DA's natural target.
He argues that denigrating him or using certain information to his detriment would advance the DA's political cause.
The DA in response would ask the SCA to decide whether the High Court order forcing Jiba to give a copy of the tapes to the court registrar was appealable.
The high court held, in granting leave to appeal its order, that the parties had different interpretations of the order. The matter required the SCA to decide on the final interpretations, the court said. - Sapa

Krecjir Interpol files stolen

Krecjir Interpol files stolen

30 July 2014 at 08:06 by Sapa

- Five laptops possibly containing sensitive information, including data on investigations into Radovan Krejcir, have been stolen from Interpol's Pretoria offices, The Sowetan reported on Wednesday.

Five laptops possibly containing sensitive information, including data on investigations into Radovan Krejcir, have been stolen from Interpol's Pretoria offices, The Sowetan reported on Wednesday.

Investigators indicated one of the laptops stolen belonged to an officer who was involved in George Louca's extradition to South Africa from Cyprus, the newspaper reported.

Other possible information on the laptops included secret witness lists and information linked to investigations into international crime syndicates.

The burglary happened over the weekend, with Interpol using offices seconded to them by police.

The thefts first took place on Saturday, with burglars returning again on Sunday.

It was believed the thieves had access cards and key codes to gain entry into the offices and building. The offices were being used by three colonels and two captains.

Lt-Gen Solomon Makgale confirmed to the newspaper the thefts had taken place, but would not confirm sensitive information had been compromised.

"We don't want to get ahead of ourselves. We are busy with investigations," he said.

No arrests had been made.

Krejcir and five others are on trial facing charges of kidnapping, attempted murder, and dealing in drugs.

Louka, a Cypriot national, is accused of killing Teazers strip club boss Lolly Jackson.

Only 23 682 trained detectives in SAPS - Dianne Kohler Barnard

Dianne Kohler Barnard
29 July 2014

DA MP notes that only 43% of the cases reported to SAPS make it to court often due to problems in evidence, and poor handling of crime scene

SAPS needs more detectives to fight crime

28 July 2014

A reply to a DA parliamentary question has revealed that there are only 23 682 trained detectives in the South African Police Service (SAPS). However, in the recent budget briefings, the number of detectives (less support staff) was given as 25 771. This therefore raises questions over the number of untrained detectives in particular. Either way, this number is simply not enough to address South Africa's massive crime crisis, which has seen violent crime once again on the increase, and the murder rate rise again to 45 per day.

According to the DA's policy proposals, we would ensure that an additional 7 818 detectives are brought into the SAPS, to bring detective numbers to 31 500.

The DA will submit parliamentary questions to determine the current vacancy rate for detectives; the number of dockets on each detective's desk; whether a plan exists to increase the number of detectives, and a budget made available for this; and whether continued training is made available for those who remain in the employ of the SAPS.

Well-trained and resourced detectives are essential to ensuring that all crimes are properly investigated and that a successful court-ready docket presents a strong case against the accused.

Currently, the conviction rate as a proportion of the cases reported to SAPS sits at a mere 14 % as of 2011/12 according to the SAIRR.

Importantly, only 43% of the cases reported to SAPS make it to court. This is often attributed to problems in evidence, and poor handling of the crime scene, often being attributed to cases being thrown out of court.

The Minister and Police Commissioner would do well to spend their R73 billion budget on employing and training more detectives as opposed to wasting R45 212 787.50 of public money on "accommodation and meals" in one year alone.

Indeed, the DA recently revealed that R 153 322 610.10 has been noted by the Department as irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditure between 2009 to 2014. This is money that would have been better spent on providing a well-trained and professional service.

The DA will continue to urge the Minister of Police, Nathi Nhleko, to prioritise the hiring and training of more detectives to ensure that our criminal justice system works optimally.

Only when we do this, will we see a real impact on our unacceptably high crime rates.

25% cops failed gun test

25% cops failed gun test

Over 25% of cops required to carry a firearm are not competent to do so, says Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko. File Photo: Antoine de Ras
Cape Town - Nearly a quarter of the police officers required to carry a firearm are not competent to do so because they failed the test, says Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko.

Also, more than 900 officers - 281 from the Western Cape - were charged in the past four years with helping detainees escape, he said in response to questions from the national and provincial legislatures.

By July 14, only 116 201 of 155 534 SAPS members met the standards to carry a firearm, he told DA MP Dianne Kohler- Barnard in a written reply.

Kohler-Barnard said this meant that 39 333 or 25.3 percent of operational SAPS officers did not have the competency to carry a firearm.

“This confirms a 2012 leaked performance audit which revealed that 27 000 police officers had failed their firearms proficiency test. It is of great concern that not all our police service members have the necessary training to perform their jobs to the best of their ability. This not only puts them in danger, but it may also result in harm to members of the public when they perform their duties.”

It might also be contributing to the “trigger-happy” firing of weapons, which was “increasingly becoming a trend in our SAPS”, Kohler-Barnard said.

From 2009 to 2011 alone, the number of allegations of police brutality increased by 91 percent, she said.

“The minister of police, Nathi Nhleko, must take urgent steps to address the lack of training that is making police officers a potential danger to the citizens they are tasked with protecting.”

Nhleko’s spokesman Musa Zondi on Sunday said he was unable to give details of why some officers had failed the firearms test and what measures would be put in place to correct this. “I will need to get the details from the police.”

Nhleko said that national police commissioner Riah Phiyega was not required to carry a firearm because she was “classified as management”.

Kohler-Barnard said the DA would submit further parliamentary questions to seek clarity on the status of the officers who do not possess firearms “or possess firearms without the requisite clearance”, and the measures put in place to correct the problem.

In a written-reply to a question from DA MPL Mireille Wenger in the Western Cape, Nhleko said 907 officers had been charged with helping detainees escape from 2010 until last year.

Of them, 516 had been found guilty in disciplinary hearings.

More than a quarter - 281 - were from the Western Cape. Nearly 60 percent of these were found guilty, but only two were dismissed.

Wenger said this was “cause for concern”.

In the province, 162 officers were found guilty, but only two were dismissed. Of these, 133 received written or verbal warnings, while the rest were fined, suspended or received counselling.

“The consequences appear to be far too lenient. Aiding an escaper is tantamount to defeating the ends of justice and is a serious matter,” Wenger said.

She would take this further.

Wenger, who is also chairwoman of the standing committee on community safety, said the number of officers committing crimes was alarming.

It was even more worrying that they were being kept on in the service. She would investigate how many of those found guilty in disciplinary hearings had been criminally charged, Wenger said.

More than a 10th of police cannot shoot

10th of police cannot shoot

Written by defenceWeb, from the Sunday Times ( Going back to the year 2012 )

More than 27 000 police officers on active duty have failed the firearms proficiency test - making them a danger to their colleagues and the public. This is according to a draft performance audit report by the SAPS internal audit unit dated December 14 2011.

The audit was conducted to assess the quality of training provided to police officers. Yet, despite this, many still carry official service weapons, the Sunday Times reported yesterday. According to the report, 27 329 (or 17%) of the 157 704 police officers who underwent training to comply with the regulations of the Firearms Control Act, which took effect in 2004, failed firearms proficiency tests. A further 55 429 members still have to be trained in accordance with the new legislation.

There are 213 133 operational members, including 59 955 active reservists, in the SAPS [South African Police Service]. The firearms test which the policemen failed is similar to that which ordinary citizens have to pass in order to obtain a firearm licence.

Acting national police chief Lieutenant-General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi appeared taken aback by the report Saturday, saying it would be unfair to comment on something he had not seen or heard of.
He said detailed questions should be submitted to his communications department. But the department has refused to provide detailed comment to questions submitted two weeks ago. "If there's that number not competent, then, in terms of the law, they can't carry weapons," Mkhwanazi said. Mkhwanazi admitted that not all police officers had undergone firearms training in compliance with the new act.

Asked what action would be taken against those who were carrying firearms although they were declared not competent, he said: "I would charge the commander. I would want to know from the provincial commissioner why he [the member] was allowed to carry a firearm." Findings in the 40-page report, based on an audit on training in the police force, included:
- A total of 7578 of the 16 123 operational members in the Eastern Cape have not yet been trained; and,
- 448 of the 1019 police members who failed firearms proficiency tests in the Western Cape were declared "untrainable" because of medical reasons or as a result of being declared unfit to possess a firearm. The definition "untrainable", a policeman told the Sunday Times, is also used for those who cannot even pick up a rifle or continually fail to hit a target during shooting practice.

The Safety and Security Sector Education and Training Authority (SASSETA) - the body tasked with issuing "learner achievement" certificates to members of the SAPS who pass proficiency tests - confirmed that only 3570 certificates were awarded since 2010. The revelations come in the wake of the fatal shooting of Soweto teenager Thato Mokoka on February 14, allegedly by student constable Sipho Mbatha. It has since come to light that Mbatha had been declared unstable and unfit to carry a firearm. Mbatha is in police custody and will appear in court again on March 16. He allegedly had his R5 rifle in full automatic mode when shots were discharged, hitting Mokoka three times, the Sunday Times reported.

The audit report stated that one of the effects of having members who were "not yet competent" in handling weapons was that "they are placed on operational duties with a firearm they cannot use properly". "This fact is a very high risk for the lives of fellow colleagues, as well as members of the community." It added: "The fact that members cannot utilise their firearms with confidence could lead to an increase in police killings."

The majority of those who failed the tests, according to the report, were operational members "who were supposed to carry their official firearms on a daily basis". The audit team said despite "ample legislation" indicating what was expected of the police's top management, "there are still no proper policies and procedures in place regarding the competency issue of Police Act members [those on operational duty]."

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa's spokesman, Zweli Mnisi, would not comment, as he said the issues were of an "operational nature".

The opposition Democratic Alliance's Dianne Kohler Barnard says those who have failed the firearms proficiency test, pose “a clear and present danger to the citizens they are mandated to protect.” The DA shadow minister of police adds “SAPS members should not be endangering the lives of others and adding to the problem by carrying guns when they are clearly not fit to do so.”

She would like both Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa and Acting National Police Commissioner Mkhwanazi to account to Parliament and outline the action they will be taking “to ensure that the SAPS does not violate its own constitutional responsibility to protect and secure South Africa citizens.”

SAPS urged to shoot dangerous criminals - report

Cele said 'shoot to kill' - journalist
Man hands himself in after killing cop
Female cop killed in shoot-out

Johannesburg - Eastern Cape police have been urged to shoot criminals who pose a danger to police officers, the New Age newspaper reported on Monday.

"You must shoot when your life is in danger of criminals. We cannot always have funerals of police killed by criminals," deputy police commissioner Major general Zamuthango Mki was quoted as saying.

Mki was speaking at the funeral of Sergeant Thembile Gulwa at Ngcwazi village, in Ngqamakhwe, on Saturday.

Gulwa was shot dead in an incident involving seven people in Kinkelbos, Port Elizabeth, in February, the newspaper reported.

A 37-year-old man was arrested for Gulwa's murder. Six other people are still at large.

Mki told community members to stop protecting criminals.

"When you do that, you are contributing to the increase of crime in your areas," he reportedly told the newspaper.

In 2009, former national police commissioner Bheki Cele said that he wanted the law changed to allow police to "shoot to kill" criminals without worrying about "what happens after that".

Parliament approved the criminal procedure amendment bill in 2012.

It provides guidelines on when and how deadly force may be used to carry out an arrest.

Boetman is die bliksem in

28 July 2014, 12:35

Back in 2009 when I blogged on Mweb, Chris Louw committed suicide and his letter Boetman is die bliksem in was read by many, I was reminded of this letter by Brollox and Bittergal, who I knew under a different alias back then, I am sure but not certain.
Boerseun is that you?

I translated Chris Louw's article back then because there were many that did not understand Afrikaans, I went looking for it on Saturday but my English translation is lost to mankind. I am posting a translation of Chris's letter here. Chris said the words that many of us that survived grensdiens, the rooi gevaar and the swart gevaar wished we could. Sleep peacefully Boetman.
I have made a few notes and the words that I translated, as there is no real English translation that has the power of the Afrikaans word or phrase, in parenthesis.
Afrikaans is a beautifully expressive language and that is why the English in South Africa use words like lekker, gatvol and the curse words that have no equal. My translation loses some of it's flavour because the vernacular is beautiful in it's original language. I want to thank my beloved M for helping with the translation.
"Dear dr. De Klerk
At first I wondered why I read your book "Afrikaners: kroes kras and kordaat" with such resistance, not complete loathing, take note resistance.
My generation was brought up to keep our emotions in check, and not to give in to any longing, not love nor hate.
We were taught to be seen and not heard, to do as told without backchat, to show respect for our elders, To, at the drop of a hat, be prepared to sacrifice our lives for our country and the greater cause. I am talking about white Afrikaner men between 30 and 50, the guy's who were branded by National Service.
(I am English and I was brought up with the same constraints, Chris thought he was talking for Afrikaner men, but he spoke for English men as well)
Let me phrase it diplomatically, your book smells of dishonesty, the dishonesty of excusing prior misdeeds.
Primarily your book was not written for children, those that must push out their new branches from their Afrikaner roots.
Your book was written for an aged man, somewhere in the seventies with wrinkles on the face and grey hair on the temples, a conservative pair of specs on the nose to create the impression of someone with status, someone with insight, whose judgement can be trusted, whose words carry weight.
I remember when you were the Editor of Die Transvaler. You most likely will not remember me, I was the lad that you greeted in the halls with "Dag Boetman", Then I was Boetman, twenty years later I am a middle aged white Afrikaner man.
My generation was taught from the cradle to play with words, words that seldom had the meanings seen in the dictionary. Think about concepts like "democracy", "nationalism", "self government", "independent states", even the noun that my friends were sent to the border for, and some were never to return, "South Africa".
The "South Africa" of your words, The "South Africa" that you promised loyalty to, was something totally different, something a lot whiter, than the South Africa that we together, black and white, praise in our painful new anthem.
We learned this from your generation, this ability with words, your generation thought up the concepts, my generation lived them. Because we were trained not to be openly rebellious, "yes dad, no dad, three bags full dad"
Your generation was the first and probably the last in Afrikaner history that never attended a war, too young for the second freedom war, too young for the first world war and too German Neutral for the second world war, too deep in thought and wonder about state orders and planning of other constellations and seeking justification for the border war.
(My dad was too young for the second world war but eagerly sent his sons off to war)
You were the first generation that conscripted your children and sent them to die for you.
Those that did not want to defend your crazy dreams with weapons that you issued were sent to jail or even worse declared insane. Those that even then called the system too crazy for words were declared schizophrenic and unfit for military duty.
And you? Where were you, You withdrew into your dusky office and minted resounding phrases and judgemental words like your famed new creations; enlightend (verligtes) and unenlightened. (verkramptes)
In reality there is another group of Afrikaners, The "addicted" (Die verknogtes), as in "addicted to power" or rather addicted to back stabbing (knoei). The dictionary definition of knoei is "untidy, unfinished work done, fraudulent and underhanded methods of doing things, using dishonest methods.

Enlightened, Unenlightened, Addicted (Verlig, verkramp, verknog.)
My Dad always said : Verwoerd, Confused, Arrogant (Verwoerd, verward, verwaand.)
Did you know when you "Dag Boetman"ed me in the Halls of Perskor, I was a married man, a father of two, just shy of thirty, with bond payments to make, Did you know that my peers, the shut-up-dad-has-spoken-generation were in Angola to shoot the k*k out of terrs? Do you know how the Terrs shot the k*k out of us?
But you were too busy thinking about new meanings for seperate development, too busy giving new meaning, moral and intellectual content to seperate development, You had to keep yourself busy with State Philosophical issues like the continual expansion of democracy that had to find favour in the stunning tricameral parliament.
Do you know that when I was the News editor of "Die Vaderland" I was called up for a military camp in Richards bay?

Do you know how this well known and important citizen served his country? I cleaned toilets (k*kpotte) in the army, That was my daily instruction.
I am not complaining, I am just one more generation of generations of Afrikaners that went to war for the survival of his people.
Cleaning Toilets in the camp at Richards Bay. When the captain heard he had a well known member of his community, he was ashamed and took pity on me.
So I was appointed to clean the office of his secretary, I was after all a senior journalist at a leading pro NP newspaper. I even decided what Afrikaners read, what was newsworthy and what was absolute k*k.
I was a trustworthy catalyst. I was after all a product of Christian National education, a succesful creation of groups like your "broederbond"
You, the product of a generation that let every war go by like the poisoned chalice (bitter beker). The generation that took the weight on their shoulders to mold their children by hand into tin soldiers that had to go to the border and fight, to kill and be killed for your ideals.
We got medals, yes Honoris Crux pinned on, post mortem in some cases with the strong and trusted hands of PW Botha.
We learned to live ironically, my generation, we couldn't do otherwise, we had to, to survive.
Shut your trap, listen when you get spoken too, put your head in the effing scrum, It's not an antheap, bend over, why is your hair so long, lets bow our heads and thank God for all our blessings, The K*ffirs are getting much too white, children must be seen and not heard, you are a effing sleg troep, do you understand? You will follow orders, we will solve the political problems ....
You never tasted that humiliation, not you or your generation, you merely created the stuation for it. You even phrase it better than I can - The herd instinct and tendency to bow down to authority make us followers of leaders in many areas.
How beautifully you play with the nouns "us: and "them" when you refer to the Afrikaner, everything to place distance between the subject and the verb, "I" nicely finds shelter behind the abstract "us" and "them" and "Afrikaners" as if the camoflaged "me" was never present, no need for self pity or to say I am bitterly (tot die dood toe) sorry.
Then your big opportunity arose, your hour of truth. To meet the ANC face to face on the battlefield of the conference table. For years the young ones held the enemy at bay, Now the childrens games were over, now you would take up arms, you were ready, Your words were honed by many years of practice.
All your biggest plans were unmasked in mere months at the multiparty negotiations in Kempton Park, Where were your seven point plans, your 5 point strategies, your guarantees for minorities, when you met representatives from the whole country? Where was your bravado, the threats, the rousing speeches, the promises? I was there, it was pathetic to see your arguments and your arrogance ripped from beneath you.
Now we sit with questions, Apartheid is dead, the time for grieving is over. There is reformation and transformation.
A new state is being ordered with snapping fingers. Come come "Boertjie" Move your arse, The servant has ordered his own state. Stand to attention, don't talk back, your days are over. It's your duty to help the new order to arise. You must hand over your skills to the new black elite, that's how you justify your existence.
Who is the you that is being referred to? The addicted? No their nests are feathered, the addicted made a historic about-turn, without missing one goose step as Breyten Breytenbach put it.
The elite of the old order fell over their duck feet to make peace and alliances with the elite of the new order. They visit one another and discuss high, reconciliatory ideas like state affirmation strategies, a new patriotism, paying homage to the new order.
Phil Molefe, the SABC's News boss, tells the human rights commission that transformation in the upper echelons of the management sector has successfully concluded, the problem lies in mid level management where white men are still kicking against transformation.
I am a white man. What is your definition of transformation Mr Molefe? Is it expected of me to transform out of my post? Must I willingly and courteously live out your African dream, because that is the way I was raised? What is it you expect of me? Oh, I may not have an opinion. Thank you Mr Molefe, that's really easy Mr Molefe, because that is how I was raised Dr De Klerk.
Who is the "you" like in "Hey you effing soldiers, Move your arses, the "you" that must now bring the sacrifices to the new South Africa? Is it not those poor bastards that fought the Afrikaner elites doomed war on the border and in the townships that once again has to pay the piper?
A Psychiatrist wrote in a letter to Beeld that a large part of my generation suffers from spiritual weariness. In many cases it takes the symptoms of psychiatric maladies like depression, PTSD and other anxiety disorders. A general reaction of grief, loss and an existential crisis.
The syndrome has to do with a loss of respect for the previous patriarchy. It has to do with predicting one thing and doing another, with truth and lies, with honesty and holier than thou attitudes (skynheilig) amd with communication rather than language.
"Despite all the discussions, we are a nation with rights, fame, achievement and a brave history" This, Dr DeKlerk, is what you wrote on page 99.
It was either Nat Nakasa or Can Themba, I don't remember, that once said, no matter how tightly he closes his eyes, he can't imagine a South Africa without white people, how impossible that would be.
Do you know when I close my eyes and I wish your generation out of Afrikaner history, then I don't see a nation of heroes, but only down to earth, real people with whom I can identify, people built by the conflict of the oppressed, from that old pedophile Jan Pieterzoon van Kaspel ter Mare that landed in the Cape in 1659 and battled lions and the Dutch Officials till he had a prize farm named Louwsvliet where the current Newlands is, to Louis Trichardt that rode to meet his death at Lourenco Marques, A stubborn and hard headed man without vanity, in his diary not one self righteous entry referring to the Bible or even the mysteriousness of God, The never say die General Christiaan de Wet, even Louis Botha and Jan Smuts that were prepared to fight and die for their beliefs.
Do you know how easy it is for me to close my eyes and imagine your whole generation of patriarchal, know it all, race obsessed thugs out of my history.
What is the greatest achievement of your generation, the generation that never smelt blood, never heard whistling bullets and felt the anxiety of battle, just the creators of big ideas and life philosophies? I admit my subjectivity, but didn't you expend all your energies to lead the world and your children by the nose?
Wasn't your greatest achievement the amount of dogmatic horse manure you successfully sold to us as moral fruits?
You have tough and bitter things to say in your tract, words you drop humbly, but why the abstract? Why "us" and "The Afrikaner"; Why not "I"; integrally part of the master race prophecies?
You write "It is absolutely true that the Afrikaner youth in large numbers are suspicious of being Afrikaans. Why? Why not a simple sentence that admits, I, I was personally, energetically and purposefully with the inhuman abberation called Apartheid?
The irony is that, intellectually, I agree with so much you wrote, but it does not dispel the rage. I am the "bliksem in" (totally beyond p*ssed off), raging at the arrogance, the self justification, the rationalisation, the denials and the lies.
If we follow your advice, we can survive, yes. But if we follow your advice now, we will be exactly where we would have been if your generation did not defraud us with apartheid, and what's more we would not be saddled with your guilt.
Like always we are at the feet of the masters. We get slapped on the ears. Because the new generation of know it alls is a generation that has rejected us, along with the patriarchy that we portray. In a single lifetime we have been transformed from shut up, stand to attention and do what the uncle says to middle aged white Afrikaner men that suffer from power loss syndrome. The result is the same "Shut your trap, you have nothing to say!"
Excuse me Corporal, but f*ck you, Excuse me Dr De Klerk. Excuse me, Mr Molefe, Excuse me, Excuse me, my fellow citizens, I have sinned against you. Excuse me, Sonja Loots, your generation are the real children of apartheid, you are still young and innocent, the real victims, I am an old sinner, polluted with gun oil, the sweat of the parade ground, the blood of black children.
Excuse me, I have no moral right to open my trap, I have never had that right, How dare I do it now?
What remains for me? I am too old to be totally innocent, I am too young to be completely involved, I am too innocent to make apologies, I am too guilty to wash my hands.
I am gatvol, completely, to the brim, gatvol of taking orders. First the apartheid's patriarchy, now from the reformed Pontius Pilate patriarchy and the new black elite.
Already the judgemental reigns are being taken over by young white feminists with a sharp eye for a power gap, the new class of oppressed, with the historically disadvantaged, black men, especially black women, the disabled, HIV infected ...
Shut your gob middle aged white Afrikaner man, Attention! listen when I speak, You have f*ck all to say.
I am sorry, I am very sorry, but I have been cheated enough. Now I fight for what is important to me, inside democracy, sure.
But not neccesarily with the prescribed and outspoken and the politically correct and the idiotic masses.

Respectfully Yours
Chris Louw "
I would have said some things differently, I probably would have used harsher language but Chris spoke for me at the time. Looking back we trusted our leaders to ensure that our children would not be victimised for something they had no part in, We went to the gallows willingly, we voted YES and we were discarded like old toilet paper and flushed. Even worse is that our children are being punished for the sins of their fathers and their fathers before them.
