Over the past week a serious issue has come to light over the reformation of the SA Police's "Occult Related Crime" units. In a press release last week, the SA Pagan Rights Alliance, representing the Pagan community of South Africa, revealed that the SAPS is forming these units to address so-called "occult related crimes", based on information obtained from a SAPS internal memo. Most of the items on the list (i.e. "investigating rape by a Tokoloshe") are patently ridiculous, and make the SAPS look even worse than its largely overweight and too-incompetent-to-handle-a-firearm 'blobbies' on the beat PR image already do. The other items place non-Christians in South Africa up front as targets for suspicion and intimidation simply on the grounds of their belief systems, and largely on the basis of "crimes" which could never ever be proven in a court of law.
