Lifted from the group, CAMPING & FISHING: -

Cop robbed and killed while fishing

 / 
28 January 2016 at 13:07pm

Johannesburg - What was meant to be a leisurely day off work spent fishing had a bloody end for an Ekurhuleni metro police department officer when he was robbed and killed.

Jordaan Voort from the Equestrian Unit had taken the day off on Wednesday to go fishing at the Aston Lake in Springs, EMPD spokesman Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng said on Thursday morning.

But his body was found in a pool of blood in the grass in the afternoon.

Mokheseng said the cop was found with open wounds. He was unable to say whether he was fatally stabbed or shot.

He said Voort was believed to have been killed between 1.30 and 2.30pm.

“His Nissan Nivara bakkie, 9mm Glock (service) pistol, wallet and cellphone were taken,” said Mokheseng.

The motive for the murder is suspected to be robbery and a hunt is on for those responsible for the officer’s death.

“We are not sure how many people are involved in the murder, but an investigation is under way,” said Mokheseng.

Murders such as Voort’s sparked protests by the police last year after the death toll reached 73 in November. Of the 73, 33 were killed while on duty, while 40 were off duty.

A spate of attacks last year began on July 27 when a Joburg metro police department (JMPD) officer was gunned down in an armed robbery at a mall in Rosettenville.

That followed the death of Hawks officer Petrus Holtz who was stabbed to death in Cape Town while changing a flat tyre on the highway.

On the same day of Holtz’s murder, a gang of armed robbers shot and killed 36-year-old police officer Njabulo Buthelezi while he was responding to a crime scene in Vosloorus.

The following day, a Gauteng police officer and a robber were shot and killed in Temba, outside Pretoria, with another officer killed during a shoot-out in Jeppestown a day later.

An Emalahleni, Mpumalanga officer was killed just two days after the Jeppestown incident.

On that day, a police officer was shot and wounded during a stop-and-search operation in Carltonville while two JMPD officers were shot and seriously wounded while directing traffic in Midrand.

JMPD spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said at the time the sergeant had sustained four bullet wounds, two to his chest, and one to each leg, while the other officer had sustained a bullet wound to the neck.

Following these attacks, the Police and Prison Civil Rights Union (Popcru) organised a march and asked that officers who defend themselves against criminals not be prosecuted.

Popcru spokesman Richard Mamabolo said at the time: “When police don’t do anything, fingers are pointed at them, but when they do something, they are blamed for it.”

Very sad.  I am very weary of remote, quiet spots.  I do not want Colin to go fishing at the surrounding rivers in our area  anymore.  You should also never go alone.  They see you there and they think, you will probably have a phone, a wallet, a watch.  That is enough reason nowadays to be killed.

Dink die koerant het nie hul feite mooi reg nie;

Sy naam was Koort Jordaan, en hy laat sy jong vroutjie en 'n pragtige blonde, blou oog baba dogtertjie van paar maande agter.

Dis baie skokkend. En dan die vrou en kind wat hy agter laat. Ook sy familie! Sterkte en God's seen toegewens. Ook aanvaarding. Hoop hulle kan voortgaan met hul lewens sonder om te "HAAT!"  Ons bid vir hulle!

The days of fishing alone at remote spots is long gone. Even if you are armed, you are still at a disadvantage. The cowardly attackers normally operate in groups. They may surround you and one will likely distract your attention. The idea is for anther one to strike from behind with any kind of weapon.

You cannot just go and point firearms at people. That in itself is a crime and you will lose your licences. You thus have to wait for some kind of threatening move before you are allowed to use a firearm for self-defence. That is bad if the first threatening move is a shot from behind! Attackers look for easy targets. A group of alert guys will most likely cause them to look elsewhere.

Many people frown on camping with firearms. Bullets will penetrate caravans and tents with ease. We are however also at risk on the way to and from our destinations if you should have any mechanical malfunction or even a flat tyre. I do not want to be armed with pepper spray in a gunfight! The Gun Free South Africa supporters can try to show their membership cards to the armed crooks.

Ek self is 'n visserman en dit laat mens koud.  Mens moet vreeslik versigtig wees en alleen visvang  is regtig nie 'n opsie nie.

Die was 'n polisieman iemand wat redelike kennis het om homself te verdedig. Wat nog van mense wie se ingesteldheid nie naastenby is soos wat syne was nie en hy het steeds sy lewe verloor.

Sonder Jesus is ek niks! ! ! !
