This is ugly. Some cops thought a female passenger(?) was a hijacker and shot her!
You know that the 'shoot to kill' phrase thrown around by folks was going to be a bad idea.
Worse yet, there is so much crime in SA (which include an abnormally high death rate of police officers) that everyone is afraid for their lives.
Now throw in the 'do your own bit to keep neighborhood safe' as well as the 'police should just shoot to kill criminals' and it's only a matter of time before something goes horribly wrong.
Like this instance.
Quote from News 24:
Members of the Flying Squad had been "looking out" for a hijacked grey Toyota Corolla when they spotted a car fitting the description, Captain Julia Claassen said.
"The police put out their blue lights for the driver to stop, but he didn't, so police fired shots."
