A video is doing rounds on the internet of a cheeky farmer assaulting a cop inside the charge office somewhere in the Western Cape.
The farmer is alleged to have gone to the police station to make a report of a robbery but he ended up in a scuffle with the officer.
In the video the man is seen pinning the officer down on the floor before he is persuaded by another officer to let go. He does so, but reluctantly he kicks the helpless officer in the face two more times.
Commenting about the video, as has become the norm, it quickly turns to racism.
The farmer is accused of being racist even though the circumstances could not be quickly ascertained.
Some blame the cops themselves for not being able to defend themselves in their charge office and fear they could do worse in the streets.
Have your say:
