Murderers of police deserve to be hanged
"Bring back the death penalty in honour of our for Buddies in Blue"
One of the Jeppestown massacre accused has decided not to contest the confession he made to a Roodepoort magistrate about events on the day four police officers were gunned down.

Mzamo Mchunu, one of 13 facing charges of murder, attempted murder and armed robbery, handed his confession to the Johannesburg High Court on Tuesday.

In it, he describes the day he and 20 men robbed the Honeydew Pick 'n Pay and later defied the police at a house in Jeppestown where a bloody gunfight ensued.

Mary Maleke and Senzo Mweli, who were not in the house that day but were arrested two months later, are contesting the admissibility of their confessions.

Mchunu, who initially also planned to contest the admissibility of his confession, dropped his bid on Monday.

On Tuesday his lawyer, advocate Robin Stransham-Ford, said they would plead no contest.

In his confession, Mchunu admits to taking part in the robbery in Honeydew.

He says that after they robbed the supermarket, the gang fled to the house where they were to divide the money.

When they got there they learned that one of the gang members had been arrested and was bringing the police to the house.

"When the police entered ... they pointed firearms at us. I immediately threw the firearm that I had on the floor. (Siswe) Dlamini ... started shooting at members of the police. It was Dlamini and the others ... who opened fire on members of the police. Police officers were hit. Dlamini and Sibiya ... were also shot and died at the scene," he says.

Inspectors Frikkie van Heerden, Gert Schoeman, Victor Mathye and Constable Pieter Seaward were killed along with eight robbers.

Bring back the death penalty
Recently the Jewish community hosted a talk with Jacob Zuma the president of the ANC.
During the discussions Zuma was confronted with the uncontrollable crime rate in South Africa and what he thought of bringing back the Death Penalty.
Zuma admitted that crime was out of control and he added that if the “people” wanted to bring back the death penalty, they would have to hold a referendum to see what the majority of the people wanted.
Zuma would not commit himself regarding how he felt about reintroducing the death penalty.
On Wednesday 5th March eTV News at 7pm, did a poll on what its viewers thought about bringing back the death penalty and 98% out of 35,000 viewers voted YES for the death penalty while only 2% of the viewers voted NO.
Should the eTV poll be anything to go by then the majority of South African’s feel that the death penalty is the only solution to beating violent crime and murder in this country.
It is now up to the citizens of South Africa to call on the government to hold a referendum on this urgent matter so that the Constitution can be changed to accommodate the wishes of the Nation.

If found guilty, they deserve the Death Penalty!

Protect And Serve - Not Die

My four brave buddies in BLUE
Today the Country salutes you
You were all an inspirational light
Keeping your mission and zest bright
Little did you ever know
What seeds of evil against you could sew

On Sunday 25th Junes 2006 you were on duty
Little knowing what was expected of you
To come up against the trained forced of evil
Lead to your fate by Lucifer, the Devil
You were outnumbered, outgunned and slain
Like pigs going to their slaughter

Out numbered, not once, out spirited
You stood your ground like heroes
You carried your cross like disciples
You paid the supreme price with your flesh
You have all earned a place in heaven
While your enemy will languish in HELL!

The above poem says it all.
To many Policeman are being killed in the line of duty.
Lifelong jail sentence for any murder of a policeman is not good enough.
No mercy must be shown!

http://wallofhonour.co.za Fourteen policeman alone were killed during the month of June 2006 in the line of duty. Four of them were the four buddies in blue killed during a shootout with at least twenty heavily armed robbers in Jeppestown .Visit the Wall of Honour website. Decide for yourself. Reinstate the death penalty for our buddies in blue who are prepared are still prepared to protect and serve the people of South Africa.Protect our officers killed in the line of duty ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chilling glimpse into 'Jeppestown Massacre' For 19 months, photographs of the Jeppestown bloodbath lay hidden in police dockets and court files - but today it's clear why the June 25 2006 shootout was dubbed a massacre. Some of the 1 000-odd images presented to the Johannesburg High Court on Wednesday are too grisly to publish, but they tell the real and frightening story of a raid gone very wrong. The most striking photograph shows two slain police officers - Constable Pieter Seaward and Inspector Gert Schoeman - on the floor in a final embrace. Seaward's right hand is resting on his colleague's arm, his left hand is tucked under Schoeman, only the hand protruding. Their blue uniforms are covered in blood and dust from the crumbling plaster. All around is the bloody chaos of a standoff that, in the end, claimed 12 lives. The wall above the officers is smeared in streaks of blood and riddled with bullet holes. At their feet is a bag used by the gang to carry their loot. The floor is a wild mess of clothes, suitcases, bags, takkies, newspapers, car tools, buckets and coins. In the same room lie three dead robbers - one at the feet of the dead cops, one on the floor and one on his back on the bed. Five guns are scattered around the bedroom. The photo albums also contain pictures from the postmortems, detailed ballistic diaries, chilling glimpses inside other rooms at 54 Mordaunt Street, the areas surrounding the house, and money bags stolen from the Honeydew Pick n Pay and recovered in the hideout. The much-awaited trial of the "Jeppestown Massacre 13" began on Wednesday after a two-day delay. State prosecutor Joanie Spies read out the 23 charges and was met with defiant pleas of "I'm not guilty" on all counts from all accused. This means the trial - set down until the end of March - is likely to run its full course. The 12 men and one woman face various charges of robbery, murder, attempted murder, and being in possession of unlicensed and illegal firearms. All but one accused exercised their right to remain silent. Zinto Mqunu claimed he had gone to the house to visit a sangoma and was not involved in the robbery. Ballistic evidence has shown that at least 27 firearms were used in the siege - including an AK-47 - and that more than 110 shots were fired by the seized weapons. The real figure - including shots fired by police outside the house - is closer to 300. On Wednesday, 11 handguns and an AK-47 were laid out as evidence. The service pistols of Schoeman, Seaward, and inspectors Victor Mathye and Frikkie van Heerden were also presented. Two witnesses were called to give evidence: a woman robbed outside the Pick n Pay and a supervisor on duty on that bloody Sunday. Joanne Brown, who has an artificial leg, had parked in the disabled-parking spot outside the supermarket. As she opened the door, "a chap" appeared and ordered her to hand over her handbag. She later saw a man with the bag - covered in "trinkets, teddy bears and silly things" - making a getaway. She spotted a red Honda Ballade and claimed it was used by the gang. The car was then linked to the scene in Jeppestown. Sarah Marumole - a supervisor at the Pick n Pay since 2002 - was six months pregnant when the gang struck. She said she worked with one of the accused, Mary Maleke, who is thought to be the insider at the store. Marumole attended an identity parade at C-Max prison (where 10 of the accused are kept) but said she was too scared to point out anyone. On Wednesday, she was given a set of photographs and picked out one of the faces. None of the widows of the slain police officers were in court. http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_i...1832949C238812
