An old video of two men escaping from a police van recently resurfaced on social media, and it has Mzansi divided. One half sees the escape as something funny, while the other half feels it's wrong to laugh since the men clearly did some crime to get arrested.
Social media is a wonderful thing - it can help us relive funny and strange things that happened ages ago.
An old video of two men escaping from a SAPS van recently showed up again, and it has Mzansi divided.
The video shows the two men worming their way out of the van through a broken door and then making sure it's closed before taking off.
The onlookers can be heard laughing and clapping, clearly amused by the escape they're witnessing.
However, Briefly.co.za gathered that not everyone finds this incident amusing.
Taking to social media, South Africans expressed their disdain at the fact that people find it humorous, while others couldn't help but note the funny side.
Which side are you on?
@ObusitseThapelo - I just love the team work and the unselfishness of convict number one. He even took the pressed time to fix the door to illuminate suspicious
@Busko22 - Lol lol was never ready
@JeffBowyer1 - So polite to close the door after the escape!
@Chris40204576 - Ahhhh and a little touch of Ubuntu
@KhensaniBino - They could be murderers or rapists and they are now roaming the streets. If only people knew that an escape by a suspect is a straight dismissal to a police officer.
@Wendyihh - Wow We even clap , clap for them to get away so that they can come back and commit crime on us again, we must clap and laugh like this when they commiting crime towards us
@angel_anella - Jiki jiki around the corner someone will be screaming vimba at the top of their lungs because the same escapees robbed them.
