Thieves Rob Police Station, Even Take Kitchen Sink

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Thieves have robbed a newly renovated police station in South Africa, stealing everything down to the kitchen sink.

Officers from the police station in Carletonville, west of Johannesburg, had moved into a smaller building so their station could be renovated, but thieves stripped the unguarded facility bare when the renovations were almost complete, the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) said Friday." - AFP

South Africa is the most violent country on the face of the Earth, the African country makes Afghanistan and Iraq seem like paradise. If anybody should know that South Africa is a crime-ridden god-forsaken place, it should be the cops. They should never have left their police station unguarded.

The brazen thieves stole toilets, cupboards, windows and even the proverbial kitchen sink. If a solitary cop had been there, they would have probably stolen him as well, and held him for ransom.

Police declined to comment. No surprise there, what could the idiots possibly say?
