Thread: Article: Blacks receive harsher punishments than whites

    "According to Beeld, the Law Commission is currently engaged in a disciplinary hearing against Ndamase, because of firstly, her alleged refusal to carry out judicial orders and secondly, her alleged refusal to accept authority."

    Seems the Judge is being investigated, So he's a racist AND has a problem with authority, so why the hell does anyone care what the piece of shlt says and then quotes it as if it means something?

    Oh yes of course because there was racist sensationalism in it, to make blacks with inferiority complexes feel better, I see now.
    We've been havin it!

    And yet, courts are supposed to and probably do take into account the heightened flight risk of the wealthy. Most middle class people don't have the resources to relocate to another country while abandoning their property.
    A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

    huh?, can we stay in the main theme of "equality and fairness, no matter what colour, social status nor resources you have, when you have entered the judicial process."... the tributary of class distinction is of no concern to me, it is not a logical component in this discourse.

    What about Shaik or Tony Yengeni ?

    Examples of the other side of the spectrum, you average Joe Nglovu isn't politically connected though.

    But the average Frik van der Merwe isn't politically connected either. And with the racist ANC there is a bigger chance that Joe Nglovu will be politically connected. Also don't forget the racists in powerful positions. For example the magistrate quoted in the OP and John Hlophe a judge in the high court.

    If you don't remember Hlophe he said in a court:

    [I]n 2005, Hlophe was reported to have called a Cape Town attorney, Joshua Greeff, a “piece of white **** who is not fit to walk in the corridors of the High Court”. He also suggested that Greeff should go back to Holland. Greeff is not Dutch. Hlophe denied making the remarks
    In 2005 Hlophe was reported to have said that he allocated an Afrikaans language rights case to senior Cape High Court Judge Wilfred Thring “because I knew he would **** up the trial and then it could be set right on appeal”.

    "Logical component to this discourse"
    Honestly man, by the level of you're grammar it seems like you either are intelligent or are really trying to sound intelligent, because of the fact that you cannot grasp Nick's perfectly logical concept .

    iesh, shame....-try to stay on one topic at a time, maybe you will be able to contribute something worthwhile and leave the multitasking activities to those that are able to function on that level. \limitations are sometimes a gift from the gods, embrace it.

    Clearly you have embraced your limitations, especially in the the department of cognitive Logic.

    This reminds me of Bill Cosby 's pound cake speech

    "But these people, the ones up here in the balcony fought so hard. Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! And then we all run out and are outraged, 'The cops shouldn't have shot him.' What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand? I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else. And I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said, 'If you get caught with it you’re going to embarrass your mother.' Not 'You're going to get your butt kicked.' No. 'You're going to embarrass your family.'"

    So it wasn't that the court was more inclined to be lenient considering that they are orphans?
