It seems there are no bounds to the extremes criminals will go to in order to fleece the vulnerable , those who work to earn an honest living, and you and I, the taxpayers, who have to fund criminals’ illegal activities.
But we don’t fund their activities! Do I hear you protest?
Have a look at this signal example of how crime and nepotism hits the pockets of every South African in the country.
The Direct Democracy Forum have asserted elsewhere on this web-site that the DDF will not tolerate crime, that the DDF will shift the cost of crime to the criminal, to such an extent, that no one will indulge in crime of any sort, for fear of the consequences. Crime will simply be too expensive for the criminal to indulge in.
But to do that, to impose draconian punishment on criminals, the DDF have to make crime an unnecessary activity for survival and ensure that our criminal justice system is beyond reproach so that convictions are justly and truly arrived at and the innocent are not even unjustly accused, let alone convicted, and that activities such as but not limited to administrative infractions of the law are not classified as criminal and that the law is not used to further the interests of influential and unscrupulous individuals. So the DDF have a long way to go because none of those conditions exist in South Africa at the present time. See DDF policies on the Judiciary, Social Services, Education, Job Creation and Local Government for examples of DDF policies which will impact on this topic.
The buck stops at the ballot box.
