You'd think the Secret Service would have noticed that. They supposedly ran a security check on the guy.

It really seems like the whole event wasn't even close to passing muster for POTUS-level security. I wonder if the Secret Service tried telling him not to go or if they knew they had no hope of stopping him.

A rape charge in South Africa isn't surprising. 25% of the male population admits to doing it at least once.
 
2013-12-16 10:33:40 PM  
Just a little necklacing.

I'm sure the secret service looked at this guys record, and decided it couldn't have been any worse then standing next Ted Kennedy or Mel Reynolds.

Well that messes up my plans.  I was going to get him on a tour of mega churches for his ability to sign speaking in tongues.
 
2013-12-16 11:39:07 PM  
Didn't we know that already?

Also, the SS said they didn't do a background check because the South African security guys were doing them. At least, that's what I read. Could be wrong.

I read somewhere else that the murder charges in 2003 were from him and a group of other guys catching two people who had a stolen TV. They put tires around their necks and lit them on fire (apparently it's called 'necklacing' but it fell out of favor by the 2000s).

He was so crazy he couldn't even stand trial for that shiat and they had him next to world leaders?

Well yeah, dead people don't do anything aside from smelling bad.
 
2013-12-17 12:42:07 AM  
For some of it, yeah sure, sounds pretty bad, and from a security perspective the times he was unfit for trial may be a nightmare.  But charges are not guilt, if they were we'd live in a truly horrible world.

Another 1-in-4 stat.  How convenient.  Really, the lies, damned lies, and statistics is getting pretty farking old.  Challenge: site evidence other than some biased feminist source.

Ugh, "cite"...and also, source data would be nice (i.e., actual questions asked).

Wasn't this "news" re his history reported extensively several days ago?

And as long as you don't let Ted Kennedy drive, you're okay.
 
2013-12-17 12:48:16 AM  
I guess the Secret Service figured this guy was safe as long as he wasn't carrying a tire.

Yeah, not "just murder" but what I consider one of the sickest, most depraved thing anyone has contrived to inflict on another human being.

And this guy was an arm-length away from the President.  Just let that sink in.
 
2013-12-17 12:51:05 AM  
Who cares? It already happened. Not like they can dig him up and do it again. It would be undignified.

Yeah, but that was mostly done against Afrikaner oppressors. Obama certainly doesn't fit that bill.

Um, no it wasn't.  I can't think of a single Afrikaans, or otherwise white victim of necklacing during the Apartheid period.  It was used at that time in in-fighting between different anti-Apartheid factions and now in vigilante actions against suspected criminals.

Given the scrutiny the Secret Service gives to anyone who is going to be close to the President when he's in this country, you're right.  But that also raises the same question about the security details for all the other world leaders who were there.  Did they all rely on South African security?  And one might wager that won't happen again soon.

I think you will find that necklacing was used as a general grudge settling device and the majority of people who received the treatment were from the majority population.  But much like in the US, black on black violence doesn't get the press the way black on white violence does.

Like everyone else who saw "Children of a Lesser God",  I thought I knew how to say "bullshiat" in sign language. Turns out the sign they used is wrong and was made up by hearing people. Too bad. It was a very funny sign.

It's not like he had a tire and some lighter fluid, for Christsake. Teddy Roosevelt ditched his Secret Service detail and camped out overnight with John Muir in Yosemite. Those guys must have really been going crazy.

Your weak Google-Fu is weak. Just type '1 in 4 South African Men' and you'll see stories from Time, msnbc and the bbc.

Points for style, I suppose, but it couldn't possibly match the agony of slowly burning to death over 20 minutes.

They say the best assasinations are the one where you set the board and the pieces just right, and let events just play out.

But seriously, they need to fire a LOT of higher ups, or the whole thing is a joke.  A GROSSLY OVERPAID BY THE BILLIONS joke.

Oh goodie. This is the new Benghazi. We were running a little short on manufactured outrage.
