Terro White said:

"This is our new South Africa, taking a video is all you know, posting while watching your sister, your brother, mother or father being terrorised before you, you are the same as the two guys stealing, I can't possible believe you had so much time to take the video instead of helping out, if you don't have the energy, why don't you use a brick? It's about time we south Africans change, help each other and stop being so cruel video grapher"
