Every day in South Africa crime takes place and unsuspecting citizens fall victim to these thugs. However, one video has had South Africans shocked over the brazenness of several alleged robbers.
On Wednesday, Yusuf Abramjee shared a video on Twitter showing the thugs robbing a woman in broad daylight while two police officers were only metres away.
A citizen decided to alert the cops to the incident but the officers were in no rush to stop the alleged robbers. They casually got out the police van and walked over to the scene of the crime, giving the thugs enough time to drive off.
As the car drove away, the officers suddenly started to run back to their vehicle to follow suit. It was not revealed whether or not any arrests were made.
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans were not impressed with the cops' feeble attempts to stop the crime that took place just metres from them. While some said the officers looked after their own safety because thugs don't hesitate to shoot, others dubbed the cops useless.
Social media user, @dramadelinquent, commented:
"The crime is our incompetent police."
Another tweep, @madlinkosi, wrote:
"There is Paradise Tavern there, those cops know there to buy alcohol... So they were flat-footed."
