SA is so used to crime, we don’t even expect it to be punished
I wrote a “nice” column last week. I wrote that we must not allow some of the outrageous acts of our politicians and some of our fellow citizens to become normalised in our society. It was a pretty decent column (I think!) as columns go. It said all the right things. It was harsh without being negative. It was forward-looking without ignoring the past. Crucially, everything in it was true.
Yet I have to confess that I think it was all a bit dishonest.
