Crime: The order of the day

Ok so it’s been a while since my last blog but, I have to admit I’ve been experiencing writers block.

The reason for this, is that I’m not used to choosing my own topics to write about. I’m a journalist who’s been on a break from covering news since I had my kids. In the past my topics were pre determined by the crime that took place in the areas I covered. 

I wrote a few blogs but never posted them because they were just way too much about me and I just didn’t find it interesting enough to share with my readers. 

One thing I’ve been dying to bring up though is this story about a 60 something granny who whilst travelling home in a taxi was robbed then thrown out of it while it was moving. Come on! Really?!?! 
What kind of a person do you have to be to have the ability to do that to a senior. The woman was badly injured since she landed on her face.

This is just one of the hundreds of crime stories that shows that the quality of life in Cape Town has drastically decreased. In all honesty the only thing still keeping me in SA is my family. The allure of the table mountain, the sunny beaches and colourful klopse ain’t worth the crime that we are faced with on a regular basis.

Anyway, I hope that something can be done about crime soon or else immigrating will be the order of the day for all who can afford it.
