Definitely a contender for Asshole of the Year...
 
2013-12-11 02:28:48 PM  
Well, what are the odds he'd be home?
 
2013-12-11 02:36:56 PM  
As crimes of opportunity go, that one's hard to beat.

This is tutu sad...

My guess the stuff is already pawned.

I came here to make a chess reference. You beat me to it, therefore...you suck!

Desmond has just checked in at FNB Stadium.

Stupid Foursquare.

....... especially if he was wearing one.

Good thing they didn't target Bibi Netanyahu's house.

How's the nude lady?
 
2013-12-11 04:06:38 PM  
Why would a Bishop have any valuables? Vaguely recall something about rich men not likely to get into heaven...
 
2013-12-11 04:08:06 PM  
As this is Fark, I'm sure that someone will show up to white knight for the burglars.

Polishing the bishop probably.
 
2013-12-11 04:10:46 PM  
Don't mess with my Tutu.
 
2013-12-11 04:11:16 PM  
Considering he lives in a very affluent neighborhood, it's not surprising.
 
2013-12-11 04:12:52 PM  
Is he the one who made the "I Have a Dream speech", or was that Malcolm The Tenth?

Desmond Tutu's not that bad.

Dude, it's South Africa.

I worked for a company that was about half south african.  They take some things for granted, like;

- If you're going to eat out, you need to know the armored truck cash pickup schedule, because if you go when they're getting cash, you'll be involved in a shoot out or robbery.
- It's not important if there are bars or sturdy doors on houses, you need to look at the height of the compound walls, and whether or not the mercenary company 'private security companies' that patrol it are well armed and don't have a record of corruption.
- Your car will be stolen.  Your next car will be stolen too.  Don't get attached.
- If you're female, plan to be raped at least once in your life - more than half are.  If you're a man, plan to rape - at least 25% of the male population says they do in an anonymous survey!

The UN ranks them #2 in most violent crime among all countries.  Think about that; there are places with active genocide, armed rebel gangs, child armies - they don't scale up to South Africa's level of violence.

Anyone who lives in this environment and seriously thinks that ~anyone~ without their own militia is going to be free from some breaking and entering needs to have their head examined.

Yeah well, but I doubt the robbery was politically motivated.

Pfffftttt!  He's had worse days.

For some reason, I chuckled.  Maybe it's just too over the top, or something.
 
2013-12-11 04:38:13 PM  
I heard his ancestors were assassins.
 
2013-12-11 04:40:11 PM  
It's like a glimpse of the near future of South Africa or as I like to call it, Dready Zimbabwe.
 
2013-12-11 04:43:17 PM  
This was a problem in this country back in the 60s and 70s that I remember - maybe earlier.  There were thieves who would read the obits and knock off the houses of the survivors of the deceased.  Definitely low class operators.

Well alright then.

That's why you publish obituaries AFTER the funeral.
 
2013-12-11 04:49:21 PM  
This was an option on South African cars nearly seven years ago.

I suspect it hasn't improved. Shame, it's a beautiful country.
 
2013-12-11 05:11:20 PM  
Wow. I'll bet that even Anne Frank couldn't have seen that coming.
 
2013-12-11 05:24:52 PM  
I guess the thieves are atheists.
 
2013-12-11 05:24:54 PM  
Man hasn't been dead a week and already the country's going to hell in a handbasket.
 
2013-12-11 05:33:09 PM  
That wasn't burglary. That was simply some white guy standing his ground while exercising his Second Amendment solution to give himself bootstrappyness.

35 posts and no one frothing at the mouth about "burglarized" yet? That must be some kind of record.
 
2013-12-11 06:28:38 PM  
See? That's why I didn't go.

All my froth was burgled yesterday while I was at a funeral.

Well since he was a Bishop, he took a vow a poverty.   That wouldn't seem like a good place to burgle, assuming that he decided to hide his Nobel Prize since the last time it was stolen.
 
2013-12-11 07:23:09 PM  
They say don't announce your vacations online or you'll get robbed.  Dumbass

I'll bet the Lebanese are angry about this.

I would like to reccomend a related candidate: the fake interpreter for the Deaf who "translated" Mandela's funeral.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/mandela-memorial-s-fake-interp re ter-shocks-deaf-community-1.2460506

He could have killed Obama in front a world-wide audience. Bang up security there.

he probably did something stupid

like post his travel plans on facebook

no sympathy from me
