    Yesterday | News24

    As sick and tired as I am of seeing photos of and reading articles about the violence, rape and murders in South Africa every day, I WILL NOT advocate for the death penalty and here is why: 1. NOBODY has the right to take another's life, including the State; calling it the "Death Penalty" does not change the fact that it is the taking of a human life 4. We are already sitting with an inept, corrupt government that is more interested in giving jobs to buddies and family than employing someone who is actually qualified for the job will you trust YOUR life to this government ? 6. Today it will be the Death Penalty for Murder; tomorrow it is the Death Penalty for being Homosexual, for being Mentally Challenged, for being an Albino, or for insulting the King or painting a naked picture of the President, etc.
