Hijackings: be alert, be safe

There have been so many hijackings lately that driving late at night or stopping next to a group of people at robots is proving to be a risk.

Crime in Gauteng is definitely worrying, and the violent hijackings are terrifying. Are police doing enough?

The people who hijacked and killed a four-year-old boy at Reiger Park drove on without a care, while the boy was dragged beside the car. Obviously criminals have no conscience; it would be asking too much to expect such people to show concern for children.

As a parent, I cannot even begin to imagine how the family who lost a child in such a manner feel.
