Violence and Private Security in South Africa

11878 ratings | 1946626 views
Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News The high walls, electric fences, and private security guards surrounding South Africa's residences and businesses are as inherent to the country's landscape as Table Mountain is to Cape Town. And with good reason — South Africa's 2012-2013 crime statistics were the worst in a decade, with increases in murder, attempted murder, violent armed robbery, and carjackings. Fear of crime has led to a boom in South Africa's private security industry since apartheid ended 20 years ago. The field's quick expansion is largely a result of continued social and economic inequality, increased violence, and inept police forces. VICE News traveled to South Africa's mother city Cape Town to look at the lifestyle gap between those who can and cannot afford the luxury of safety.

I hate to say this but I notice a HUGE lack of seriousness and common sense in these people. Not the security but just African(white or black) people in general. It's like their competency is non-existent or very small.
William Burkett (1 day ago)
always say white have so much priveliges,white people are far more less than black people,more than 70 percent of the population is black,there isnt jobs for everyone,not everyone here is educated,black or white or whatever,so they not going to get good salaries sadly,the government steals most of all the money for their own stuff,so its a white mans fault
We're same as other countries it's just that system is not working for us in fact the whole World is crazy the first thing rights are not equal to tell you the truth most people commit unwillingly and knows that what they doing is crime in other words they're forced by a living situation .I don't support anything that is called crime

Look, it's hard to have to admit it, but some people just have no business running a country. James Madison, a former U.S President that is considered the father of the Constitution, wrote about the great danger of letting the poor vote themselves into power. Even though that's not how things happened in South Africa, it the same thing. Look what these fucking animals did to what was possibly the most beautiful nation on earth ? Shameful

as a latino one can only appreciate the automatic citizenship (full extent of rights) for the black community at the instauration of (most) republics about 200 yrs ago. hope South Africa solves its problems, we do know how hard is to build from scratch a tore society... is hard guys but doable! best wishes from Colombia to all South Africans.

This is what you get when you have corrupt people in control. It's a trickle down effect, and who knows what kind of outside influence is still at play in Africa. May not be good for europids in Africa, but it isn't good for Africans who just want to live in peace in any Country.

Jesus Christ is love you guys come back to Jesus Christ he is Lord and King John 14 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ 6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.John 3 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ 16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.Romans 10 (KJV) - ሮሜ 8: But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

As a white South African living in Cape Town this is a Perfect documentary to open the worlds eyes and 100% accurate.. hard to be the educated minority. I have so much love for my county, but to see it being run to the ground is heart breaking. Corrupt govenment stealing from their own black people and blaming whites because #Appartheid.. ? Yip... white privelage..

I have an idea: Why don't you South Africans take the land away from the whites. THAT WILL FIX ALL YOUR PROBLEMS ...... meanwhile, Zimbabweans are dreaming of the day that happens. They can't wait to take 15 zeros off their currency once all those evil white farmers go up to Zimbabwe for 99 years. One thing that will do is fix the Zimbabwean immigration problem of yours... They'll go back home where they actually know how to take lessons away from huge mistakes....

I do not think Whites have future in SA after what they did to Blacks for centuries. I think one day they will be forced to leave SA. They are in the sea of very angry, violent and uneducated black mass. And they are not gonna forget what whites did to them for last 200-300 years. Also no one can live as a minority member among Blacks (and also Muslims). The history has proved that. Even today you cannot live with blacks in US and Europe. Forget Africa. What is shocking is Merkel is letting in million plus uneducated dodgy Africans and Arab Muslims into Europe but refusing to take in white South Africans who have skills, education, right culture and attitude. These guys will be real asset to any country they go in. But for some reason there is more willingness to let in uneducated, dodgy illegal migrants than legal high skilled immigrants who can offer so much. Work permit restrictions in USA (H1B, Green card) and Europe is good example of that fucked up policy.

You mean gave them jobs when they came down from further north in Africa? They won't be forgiven for that? I guess they do say no good deed goes unpunished.

All this is a result of a bad pass. It's sad but true. And we as humans looking in from the outside should be truthful to our selves and admit the truth. The apartheid created by the white south Africans left a hole in the way south Africans think and act. And you can't blame black or whites for this you have the blame the entire country because both sides did wrong. And we should keep our nose out south Africa's domestic affiars and stop telling people to give up on their countries. Because the US is at its worst right now. Yet I'm not hearing anyone telling the blacks, Latinos and Asians to go to Canada, Europe and Australia. I'm not pointing fingures but we haven't really developed as humans.
GD (29 days ago)
So these Blacks turned South Africa into another African shit hole. These people do have some issue with law and order and self control. What they lack is social cohesion and empathy. They do not treat fellow humans (even blacks) as humans. For them he is source of Sneakers, watch or wallet. That's it. No one is talking about it. It is called racism if you discuss this issue. No one is calling them out.

If the government that you voted for never stole or had no corruption, you would be free. Even black businessmen cannot get contracts because of corruption. For 25 years, nothing has changed. Why? If you can face that fact, you will answer your own question.

White people are the devils. They should have never stepped foot on that continent. Apartheid is the main cause of all of this. I'm sure Africans were doing fine before Apartheid. They thought that they would take over Africa and live happily ever after. They are the seeds of Satan and wherever they go they cause chaos. Yes again, white people are responsible for this mess. Wherever they go, they murder, steal and abuse the Natives and their lands. They are in serious need of capitol punishment!
