Exactly, our job is to pay taxes, after that the government should spent it and sort out the problems, instead of creating more.

yes, and that is exactly why the perception exists that crime is on the increase
Then you're one of the lucky few not affected by crime. Oh, hang on, one of the reason's Telkom fees is so high isbecause of cable theft.Everyone is affected by very high out of control crime, but some choose not to see it.

In the last 2 months of last year we have had more breakins and robberies in our street than the 10 years combined before that. They attempted to steal my car twice during that period. :rolleyes:

My car stuff yes, had to get repairs done through insurance. Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Took the policeman an hour to write my A4 length statement.

What I've always wondered is why they write it, it would be much quicker to let people write it themselves. Apparently you legally can if you choose to.
