    Crime definitely pays!

    After I was a victim of crime in 2000, I attended many crime discussions, brain storming and therapy sessions. At each of thesediscussions the question came up on how to tackle the symptoms of crime.

    The only question never raised was:

    Question: "What is the influence of crime on the S.A. Govt?"

    Answer: Crime generates millions and millions of Rand's for the S.A. Govt

    Here are the facts:

    Example 1:

    Take just one million home owners in Gauteng who pay for "armed crime reaction" (not crime prevention) where private security companies react AFTER the crime has taken place - no wonder they never make any arrests! This service costs on average R250 p.m. Therefore 1 000,000 x R240.00 X 12 months x 14% VAT, generates R403 million in tax revenue for the S.A. Govt!

    Example 2:

    A car thief steals a R500,000 car and receives between R10,000 and R30,000 for his deed. The car owner is paid out by insurance and then purchases another similar vehicle, on which he pays 14% VAT or approx R70,000 as a direct result of crime.

    Who profited the most? The thief or the S.A.Govt?

    We must begin with a mechanism whereby the S.A. Govt is forced to reconsider this unconstitutional and immoral practice of profiting from crime!
