Current Event: South African Mobs

Post  CicelyS on Thu Apr 16, 2015 11:42 am

In South Africa recently, a mob of citizens armed with machetes attacked immigrants. Five have been reported dead already. Around 2,000 people have fled to police stations for safety. It's truly terrifying that people can act this way toward one another due to a simple reason of different origins. The governement has already began to assemble care packages for those who now have to make the journey back to their home country for safety reasons. Although this act was committed against the immigrants there, three of the five deaths were South African, one even including a fourteen year old boy. Many people say this resembles the events that occured in 2008 in Africa where nearly 200 people were arrested on charges of rape, murder, robbery and more. It's so sad to think of what those poor people are going through right now, and I hope they can settle this as soon as possible for the safety for everyone.

Thats terrible. Just because they are from different races, they are killing each other. What dont people understand. At the end of the day we are all the same and there is no reason to be aggressive towards each other.
