How can a 3-year-old be a threat to police?

I AM disgusted by the way the cops kill innocent people - now even children, for God's sake. Do they really think that a 3-year-old kid would kill them with a gun?

This shoot-to-kill thing will increase the number of deaths in South Africa. We must know that racial discrimination is still alive in our country and this trigger-happiness is a way out for those who are still racist.

People will kill and say they were under threat. Our children are now not safe on the street and in the cars we drive. We are trapped and we live daily knowing that we might not finish our day.

We are afraid of the criminals and the people who are supposed to protect us.
