Armed Self-defense: International Edition

How would you respond to 4 intruders in your home in the middle of the night? Suspect killed as Bryanston resident shoots at four home invaders.

[Police spokesperson Col Lungelo] Dlamini said, according to information provided to the police, “The owner of the house woke up and saw four suspects who were already inside the house. One of the suspects shot at him and he returned fire with his licensed firearm. He fired several shots and one of the suspects was fatally shot while three others managed to escape.”

“Expropriation Without Compensation” is Theft

South Africa is just about set to steal land from white farmers because whites are not allowed in SA anymore. (Almost) South Africa white farmers crisis: This IMPORTANT date could change South Africa FOREVER.

There is no voice of reason. One guy is worried it will stop foreign investment. (Really? Just because you steal things that have been in another’s possession for generations, you think people might be turned off by that?)

“I’m not against it. But if we do not handle it with great care it is certain to deter foreign investment.

“If I was a foreign investor and asked to invest in a country where there is expropriation without compensation, I wouldn’t go there unless I needed my head read.”

And “unexpectedly” the completely expected result is that agricultural production has slumped.

Statistics South Africa said agriculture production fell by 29.2 per cent in the second quarter, following a 33.6 per cent slump in the first quarter.

It said this was largely driven by a decline in crop production and continued drought conditions in Western Cape.

They try to blame the drought, but the “decline in crop production” is a result of people getting out of dodge, or just not investing the cost of seed and fertilizer in land they might not own when harvest comes along.

No Honor Among Thieves

The homeowner, more than 50 years old, managed to free himself from the ropes during the robbery and get his gun. The suspects were about to flee when the homeowner opened fire on the culprits. They returned fire.

The dead guy was found in the abandoned car a short distance away.

“There’s not much left of them.”
