Default Pre-empting the scare mongerers...

There is an e-mail going around purporting to show the decapitated and
dismembered body of a woman found in Hillbrow, Johannesburg. The
e-mail claims that the event is typical of the violence one can expect
when visiting South Africa.

The photographs are real, but the description is false. The incident
took place in Jamaica a few years back, and HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO
DO WITH SOUTH AFRICA.

I detest these types of sordid, scare mongering bits of
mis-information that only serve to increase negativity for no reason.
They also waste precious bandwidth.

What bothers me even more, is the mentality of the idiots who
perpetuate or originate the garbage. What DO they hope to achieve?

While I am in no doubt that similar incidents do happen in South
Africa, I can see no reason why someone would need to fake the story.

I wouldn't be surprised if our friend, Neil Watson / Juan Uys / Skye
the rent boy, (Crimexposouthafrica.com) wasn't behind this little
piece of digusting drivel.
