In May 3rd, the times of the times, the website of the Times reported the publication of Jan Flanagans report entitled the spread of crime in South Africa: how cities into the public security violence was published in April 18th. At the foot of Table Mountain, the area of the Gulf of Ho, surrounded by 1.6 kilometers of Changsha beach, is a microcosm of modern South Africas overall inequality. The Cape Town region is the epitome of a country that is increasingly committed to crime, making South Africa top the list of the most unequal countries on the world bank, which has recently been published by the world bank, and has won an unwanted position. Although the differences still revolve around race and privileges, few people in the house can escape crime, whether their homes are worth millions of villas or shacks on the hillsides. According to the latest statistics from the government, violent crimes nationwide have been rising for fifth years in a row, and the murder rate has increased by 22% since 2012. In South Africa, 52 people die of murder every day, 42 of them may be young black men from poor and high unemployment areas. The world banks data show that more than half of the people in South Africa are still in a state of extreme poverty, but the statistics do not in themselves explain the countrys long and serious state of impossibility. On the contrary, experts believe that the fight against crime is hampered by political interference, and former president Jacob Zuma is the chief culprit of policing politicization. In hoout Bay, public security is almost entirely responsible for the civilian population in the rich and poor communities. The only police station in the area is located at the entrance of ImizamoYethu Town, but the police do not patrol the community regularly. Local residents said three years ago, after the towns crime rate surged, public security personnel killed two major criminals - the two were hostile gangsters, one of whom was shot, and the other was sentenced to stone - leading to a sharp drop in the crime rate. The patrols organized by our community leaders have saved a lot of work for the police - we havent seen how much work they have done before, said Afrika Moni, a tour guide for foreign tourists. Our problem now is that patrols abuse their power, he said. Recently, a boy was killed. No one knew why. They slapped women just because they sat outside their homes after dark. In the valley, the call of the white community in the hoat Bay, the patrols carried by private security guards with radio and automatic rifles are the only visible public security activities. South Africas militarized mobile strain industry is worth 2 billion 600 million pounds a year and employs 490 thousand security guards, two times the number of armed forces and police in the country. The survey shows that most households are afraid of serious robbery. There are good reasons for this. Over the past five years, such incidents, including violent burglary and car hijacking, have increased by more than 40%. Lizette Lancaster, a crime and justice analyst at the Institute for security issues, praised the South African government for sharing its crime statistics publicly, but she said the data often led to a sudden and unjust comparison. She said: few countries in the world have collected such detailed criminal data as South Africa, let alone made public. Therefore, the crime rate here is often compared with countries and cities in Europe and other regions, which are not like our social challenges and modern history. Therefore, in the right context, the hard facts will present a very negative and unbalanced situation. Many wealthy and traditionally white suburban areas, including in Johannesburg, are often described as the worlds murder capital, but the murder rate is far below the average murder rate of 6.2 people per 100 thousand people. However, this relative safety is at the expense of living in high walls and power grids and paying for all weather private security every month. Gareth Newhand, a criminal justice and violence prevention expert, said that it was no coincidence that crime became worse in the most serious period when President Zuma took office. During the Zuma administration, the police budget increased by 50%, but the positive effect of additional funding was damaged by his deliberate interference. Newham said: one of the biggest mistakes in combating crime is the political intervention in the police force and the appointment of unqualified and incompetent candidates for leadership positions. Such intervention is not only at the highest level, but also at the provincial level and at the police level. Between 2009 and 2012, the National Criminal Intelligence Department of the police reduced the number of serious robbery in Johannesburg by 20% by targeting gangsters and criminal gangs. Zuma dismissed the Department, which is the most obvious example of his poor management. After the success of Johannesburg, the Department was paralyzed by Richard Mdluli, a trusted Zuma, who was appointed commander in command, and soon he faced charges, including murder and corruption. He was suspended from office and left the Department struggling. After Cyril Ramafusa was elected chairman of the African National Congress last December, he was relieved of his post. Ramosa has promised to fight corruption. In many poor areas of South Africa, the trust of the police or the ruling party is hard to recover. Last year, the ANC office in Holt Bay was burned down and looted, and five houses of its members were doomed. The charred buildings are still empty, and all the clues to arrest the suspects are gone.
