A video has been shared on social media showing car guards watching a robbery unfold right in front of their eyes. In the footage, unidentified suspects can be seen robbing a shop in Tygervalley and casually driving away.
The clip was shared on Facebook by the Intelligence Bureau SA. According to the post, the robbery took place in Durban Road, Tygervalley at a store called Matrix Warehouse. Suspects can be seen loading stolen goods into a black bakkie while the car guards look on. They then leave in t bakkie and another nearby vehicle.
Social media users had mixed reactions about the video. Some people were on the side of the car guards, saying it would have been dangerous to intervene, others said they could have at least called the police. Facebook user Mkhuseli Boesman said:
"I wouldn't do jack if I was a car guard too, you have filmmakers sitting on the second making videos instead of calling the cops or security and you want to blame the car guards. Cummon man!!!"
Tshepi Rametlae said:
"It's because there are no cops in SA... I feel like pizza, let me go rob a local pizza store without a mask."
Khumo van der Ntloana said:
"So Alta didn't have a cellphone on her to call the cops too? Why focus is on the guards? They squeak or squirm they get shot."
Chicco Letlape said:
"Very surprising, we complain about full prisons and yet we are saying police are useless, none of those prisoners handed themselves in."
Kirk Brown said:
"People are getting more stupid every day, why didn't they call the cops?".. Hypocritical if you ask me, especially if they were also watching.,
