Hijacked car drag little boy to death

Hijacked car drag little boy to death

A four-year-old boy trapped by his seatbelt was dragged to his death behind a hijacked car in Boksburg, South Africa, leaving his traumatised mother screaming at the side of the road, police and media said Monday.

"Mommy help me," were the last words Chantel Morris heard from her panicked son Taegrin as he struggled to free himself before the car sped off with him hanging helplessly out of the door, Independent group newspapers reported.

Morris had loaded Taegrin and his eight-year-old sister into their VW Golf outside their grandmother's house in Boksburg east of Johannesburg on Saturday night when three hijackers held guns to her head.

"I asked them to let me get my children out, they could take whatever they wanted, but please let me have my children. I went to the back to pull out Taegrin," Morris said.

Her daughter managed to climb out of the car, but as Morris tried to free the boy from his seatbelt his foot became stuck and the hijackers sped off, ripping him out of her hands.

Morris and witnesses to the hijacking ran after the car screaming, but it did not stop. It was later found four kilometres away, with the boy's battered body next to it.

Police have offered a reward of 50,000 rand ($5,000) for information leading to the arrest of the hijackers.

South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime, and carjacking is common.

Lets take the land from the white farmers

Location: Hartbeesfontein
Crime Date: 16 July 2014
Reported Date: 18 July 2014

Lets take the land from the white farmers

This is what happens when the government takes farms from people and give them to people who do not know anything about farming!

"Another farm, owned by the state, has been found outside Hartbeesfontein in the North West where pigs have been mistreated, the Democratic Alliance said on Thursday.

"Maritha Coetzee, DA councillor in the Matlosana municipality, has since Sunday provided food and water for three pigs through holes in a wall," provincial leader Chris Hattingh said in a statement.

This was after being told the pigs had been without food and water for some time.

"Another two pigs in the pen were already dead and were being eaten by the surviving pigs," Hattingh said.

"The agricultural unit of the National SPCA was informed of the situation and removed the pigs after obtaining a court order."

Hattingh said the farm was under the management of the Matlosana municipality and was used for local economic development projects.

He said millions of rands had been spent on the farm but every project had failed.

The farm, Moria, was across from another farm, used as a provincial agriculture project, where the SPCA had to previously euthanise 28 stud cattle, and where recently a further two were found to be in a "shocking" state of malnutrition.

"The DA will insist on greater involvement of the North West department of agriculture in agriculture projects," he said.

"It is clear that novice farmers are left mostly to themselves, without training, support or monitoring."

On 6 July, The Sunday Independent reported that pigs were found starving and eating one another on the farm Modderfontein, near Potchefstroom, owned by Thandi Modise, who is National Council of Provinces chairperson and a former North West premier.

Police and SPCA officials found dead and dying animals, including pigs, sheep, geese, goats and ducks. Many had to be put down.

It appeared the animals had been without water and food for around two weeks. There were no farmworkers on the property, no electricity, and the water pumps were broken. "
