Taxi driver, Mido Macia was tied to the back of the police vehicle and dragged for 400 meters and reportedly later died in a police cell.

    This is absolutely horrifying and left me shaking in rage and revulsion at this barbaric display of police brutality. I feel such sorrow when thinking of what that poor man suffered. When is the government going to reign in these so called law enforcers? God help us all.

    Hopefully there is a lesson learnt here.

    WTF is up with the air of celebration and jubilance? How are none of the many people standing around saying anything or doing anything to prevent this?

    These are police officers – they are some of the only people in this country able to administer lawful justice. If the taxi driver did wrong, then they should have arrested him.

    Every single one of the police officers there, participating or not, should be arrested and charged with murder. This man died – this is not something to be taken lightly.

    I am so NOT IMPRESSED. It’s stunt like this that contribute to the shit-hole image of our country.

    All those law enforcement farts should be locked up.

    Isn’t it awful that the rest of the world and its media constantly point to the savagery of South Africa. The public brutal execution of the taxi driver for parking illegally is perfectly normal for South Africa. Their over-reaction to Oscar Pistorius shooting his girlfriend four times has also raised their ire. Don’t they understand that this is the South African way? The Minister for Justice was quoted as saying: “South Africa is not for sissies. If you don’t like, leave!”. An excellent point. Certainly don’t get caught parking illegally!
