The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union condemn
the recent spate of police killings that have taken place over the last month.
They warn the public that police will use
any necessary means possible when confronted with dangerous criminals.
POPCRU is calling on police management
across the country to ensure the police are properly armed and well-resourced.
The union Spokesperson Richard Mamabolo
said “The police force should obviously react defensively towards such a nature
of crimes, another thing we would like to emphasize on, is that we need to
ensure that we find a way in which communities can better work with the police.”
He also reported that police have been able
to arrest a lot of criminals and a lot of guns have been apprehended since
