Shocking Video South Africa Man Dragged Behind Police Van [01:14]
JOHANNESBURG — They bound his hands to the rear of a van, and then sped off, dragging the slender taxi driver along the pavement as a crowd of onlookers shouted in dismay. The man was later found dead. A gut-wrenching video of the scene is all the more disturbing because the men who abused the Mozambican immigrant were uniformed South African police officers and the van was a marked police vehicle. The graphic scenes of the victim struggling for his life shocked a nation long accustomed to reports of police violence. "The visuals of the incident are horrific, disturbing and unacceptable. No human being should be treated in that manner," said South African President Jacob Zuma. The Daily Sun, a South African newspaper, posted video the footage Thursday and it was quickly picked up by other South African news outlets and carried on the Internet. It sparked immediate outrage about police behavior. `'They are there for safety, but we as a people fear them more," said Johannesburg resident Alfonso Adams. `'You don't know who to trust anymore." Some of those in the crowd who watched the scene unfold in the Daveyton township east of Johannesburg shouted at the police and warned that it was being videotaped. The police did not seem at all concerned by all the witnesses and the presence of cameras as they tied Mido Macia, a 27-year-old from neighboring Mozambique, to the back of a police vehicle, his hands behind his head.

Sun City, The Casinos - South Africa [03:06]
English see below [dt.] Sun City in Südafrika wurde vor allem wegen des Glücksspiels erbaut. In Südafrika war Glücksspiel verboten, nur im ehemaligen Homeland Bophuthatswana war es gestattet. Mehrere Kasinos bildeten den zentralen Kern von Sun City, schnell nannte man Sun City das Las Vegas Südafrikas. Die Casinos mit unzähligen einarmigen Banditen gibt es immer noch, aber auch Spielsäle mit Roulette und anderen Spieltischen. Es soll einige Bürger in Johannesburg geben, die abends nach der Arbeit die ca. 150 km bis Sun City fahren, die Nacht durch spielen und am Morgen wieder zur Arbeit zurückkehren (ich vermute meistens ärmer). Andere wiederum schicken Frau und Kinder an den Pool, während sie selbst den Tag im Casino verbringen. ******** [en.] Sun City in South Africa was built primarily because of gambling. Gambling was forbidden in South Africa; the only exception was the former homeland of Bophuthatswana where gambling was allowed. Several casinos formed the central core of Sun City and soon Sun City was called the Las Vegas of South Africa. The casinos with innumerable one-armed bandits still exist, but there are also gaming halls with roulette and other gambling tables. Apparently there are citizens of Johannesburg who drive after work the approx.150 km to Sun City to gamble the whole night long. In the morning they drive back to work. Others send woman and children to the pool while they spend their day alone in the casino.
