- A man demonstrated in a video how easily a thug could enter a house despite having burglar bars
- In just seconds, the lean individual gets past the defence mechanism and into the house
- South Africans could not believe their eyes and came up with drastic measures to ensure their own safety
On Monday, a frightening clip was posted on social media showing a man breaking into a house through a window despite there being burglar bars installed.
It's not known if the man is a thief or just someone demonstrating how useless burglar bars can be to thugs.
Twitter user, @theFarEastFiles, posted the clip on Twitter and he captioned it:
"And that's why folks, you have burglar bars to protect you!"
In just a minute, the man manages to squeeze himself into the house and back out again.
Take a look at the video below:
Social media users were shocked by the footage and some went to extreme lengths in suggesting people arm themselves for protection.
Others said the burglar bars might not stop the thugs, but it will slow them down enough for a homeowner to act.
Twitter user, @Inscash1, commented:
"Holy sh*t that’s a skinny criminal."
Another tweep, @SirDave01, wrote:
"That why I keep my pitbull inside the house."
Social media user, @Nightsh54017411, added:
"Time to put razors on the burglar bars."
In other crime-related news, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that South Africans were livid over video footage showing tourists being robbed in Cape Town. The clip went viral and it was revealed the German visitors left immediately after the incident took place.
With tourism being a major source of income for Mzansi, South Africans worry that the crime in the country will add to even more economic distress. On Tuesday, news broke that South Africa has entered a recession following the economy hitting a slump.
