Hi Steve. Hard to get a balance and all the nuances in these situations. The longer I live here the more I realise how little I know - if that is not too Irish! There is a lot going on in SA at many different levels and it is difficult not to come to conclusions that are too simplistic. In fact, we can only really grasp things that are simple so we resolve everything down to one or two variables. I still think the best writing on the complexity of murder here is "Cry, the Beloved Country" by Paton. It is a picture, a story, and can capture a lot more of what is going on than a reasoned argument.
Yes, in SA we live in a deeply disturbed society in deep trouble, but then maybe that's not too different from NI and the rest of the world!
