They really didn't look like they wanted to, and they were calling for cease fire almost immediately after it started, sucks it came to that.

I read somewhere that the crowd was thought to be armed with rifles, clubs and machetes. Just like things that happen here in the states I think we will have to wait for all the details.

holy crap...

and people say it can never happen here..

i bet the South Africans thought the same
I"ve spent time in SA in some not-so-touristy areas......

Life there is cheap; they don't ask for a wallet, your killed first and THEN they take it.

It doesn't exactly equate with western views.

As the further away from the promises made by the ANC at the end of aparthied the country is slipping; the more violence will occur there.

Wonderful country and people; but as the saying goes;

TIA.

This is Africa.

Nothing stays stable there very long.
