This is pretty unbelievable. So as most of you are probably aware, about two weeks ago there was a confrontation between striking platinum mine workers and the police in South Africa. The incident ended when police opened fire on the workers, killing 34 and injuring 78. Now here is where it gets interesting. South African prosecutors are apparently charging 270 of the striking workers with murder! Meanwhile, the police who actually killed them have yet to be charged. The Telegraph informs us that:
In a situation where there are suspects that confront members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) and a shooting takes place resulting in the fatalities of either SAPS or the suspects, those who get arrested, irrespective of whether they shot police members or the police shot them, are charged with murder.
This sort of thing will be coming to America soon unless we stop being little pathetic sheeple and start being strong, proud and brave men and women.
Here is the article from USA Today on this topic.
