The Death Squad that wasn't

The Death Squad that wasn't

The State’s case in the Cato Manor scandal is likely to be as shockingly farcical as its attempts have been to deny the arrested police officers bail. At the same time, the award-winning Sunday Times exposé of an alleged police “death squad” based at Cato Manor in KwaZulu-Natal is rapidly falling apart.

I had initially been shocked by the way the Sunday Times had portrayed the Cato Manor policemen as Hit Men who partied after shootouts and after Noseweek's lead article on the saga I immediately cancelled my subscription to the Sunday Times and wrote and told them what I thought of their journalism standards. I hope that every one of the mistreated Cato Manor officers sues the pants off the Minister of Police. The real tragedy here is that the criminals have free reign and dedicated policemen have been put through the ringer to appease the Politically connected Corruptors

As a Durban resident I would like to thank Noseweek for its investigative journalism into the so-called Death Squad in Cato Manor. All those people involved in the prosecution of the Cato Manor detectives and policemen should be ashamed of themselves. Not only that, but they should be fired by the Minister of Police.
It is time people, for a change in the government of South Africa. Roll on elections in May 2014.
