I read this article the other day in which the Deputy Security minster in South Africa aired some rather unusual views. Her advice to the police dealing with criminals included:

 “You must kill the bastards if they threaten you or the community. You must not worry about the regulations - that is my responsibility. Your responsibility is to serve and protect.

"I want no warning shots. You have one shot and it must be a kill shot.

"Criminals are hell-bent on undermining the law and they must now be dealt with. End of story. There are to be no negotiations with criminals."

With 22,000 murders in South Africa a year it’s easy to see why she might give such advice. It makes an interesting contrast with the UK, I wonder how the media would react if a government minister here said something similar.
