Summary:

Bruce takes an in-depth look at what we know about Marikana, and presents a historical overview of police culture since 1998.

Description:

South Africa is still dealing with the aftermath of the Marikana massacre. As a nation, we’re still waiting to hear the details, and to see the official reports. The media has reported on many horrific accounts from witnesses. Strikes and protests happen daily, indications, some say, of South Africa’s growing displeasure with a lack of leadership. It’s almost time for the ANC Mangaung summit, but the party remains silent. Bruce takes an in-depth look at what we know about Marikana, and presents a historical overview of police culture since 1998. What he reveals, however, will not make you feel any better about how those employed to protect us are doing their jobs.
