South African Farm MURDERS

Dear AWSG Readers

My friend Paul Els is the owner of TORCUSS, SA one of many security training facilities in South Africa and one of the best in the business. TORCUSS offers security services as well as training. One service unique to South Africa is their Anti-Farm Murder quick reaction team. Anti-Farm Murder, why? Farming  is the most dangerous job in South Africa and I dare say in the world. Why? Racial hatred and government indifference.

Most of our readers here live in North America, many others from Europe and Australia. Please consider with me what you really spend from your home finances on feeding yourself and your family. Now try to imagine how much more expensive feeding your family could be if your farms and farming families had to face this kind of danger on a daily basis. How long could your orderly world be held together? What would you pay to feed your family? What would you  expect your government to do about the situation?

The high-minded social engineers of the Western world seem to have plenty of praise for the “new” South Africa. News of the farm murder terrorist attacks is silenced outside of South Africa. There are lessons to be learned here for all of us who see the dark clouds gathering in our own future.

A handful of very brave men with a helicopter and a GPS-based alarm system are all the support that an entire nation’s farmers has in the war against terrorist murders. When a subscriber to their security service activates his alarm the signal is sent by radio to Torcuss. The responder team kits-up in less time than it takes to warm the helicopter engine and they fly to the alarm location. Areal observation of the emergency site is usually all they have to decide on the best location to drop the reaction team.

Most of us live in areas protected with on-call ambulance medical services and on-call fire protection. That extra comfort in our lives is often taken for granted. What would your life be like if the lives of every family member depended upon Paul’s TORCUSS reaction team? Would you consider work other than farming? Would you abandon your land to the terrorists?

Please read Paul’s own words.

Hi Bret,

We at Torcuss feel honored to give your reader an insight on the real deal
horror threats of farm murders and the shocking implications on this in and
around South Africa.

Just to start this of look at the few pics I am sending then think about
this in a personal type of attack ( put yourself in this shoes) and then see
the full impact of it all, we love our country more than anything and we
cannot sit still and look at our bread makers our food makers our sources
die on a weekly basis just because our country is flooded with criminals
that just not care.

Quick Stats: *
 10,5% of Farm Attack victims are murdered

 Farmers are 3 times more likely to be killed than cash in transit security officers

 12% of women attacked on farms, are raped

 60% of victims are white men over 40.

 Over half of attacks take place in the main house, a third just outside and the rest on the rest of the farm.

Fact #2: There are a lot more people moving around on your property than you think.
We have been operating on farms since 1997 and our surveillance have shown that there are a lot more people moving around on your property than you think. Did you know that in many instances, farm attackers spend weeks surveilling the farm and its inhabitants before attacking?
We now offer various options to ensure you, your family and your workers can farm and live in a safe area. The question to ask yourself “Am I prepared as best as I can to ensure the safety of my family?” If you are even 1% unsure, maybe you need to contact us. We can give you assistance to ensure your safety plan is optimal for best results.

Fact #3: From 1991 to 2010 there have been over 11 000 farm attacks.
In spite of the current safety situation on South African farms, we have found that even implemented safety measures taken by farmers are sometimes lacking, incomplete or almost nonexistent DO YOU WANT TO BE A STATISTIC???

Farming in South Africa is one of the most dangerous professions in the world. The murder rate for farmers is 313 per 100 000 per year according to a statement in July 2007 by Freedom Front spokesperson, Pieter Groenewald (Source) – about eight times higher than the reported national average murder rate. Farm attacks in SA are also 7 times higher than any other country in the world. Since 1994 more than 1600 farmers were killed. White people are in most cases the victims – there is, however, a perception that whites are the only victims.

Since the ANC came to power in 1994, 1600 farmers have been murdered in over 8000 farm attacks. A farmer has been murdered, on average, once every second day for ten years. There has been an average of 77 farm attacks per month. The murder rate of South African commercial farmers is the highest for any specific group in the world 313 per 100 000. The murder rate amongst the general population is officially 55 per 100 000 (In Europe the murder rate is 2 per 100 000).

Two of the hallmarks of farm murders in South Africa during the last ten years have been the horrible torture perpetrated on many of the victims and the sadistic cruelty to animals which is reminiscent of the Mau Mau terrorist campaign in Kenya in the 1950’s. The sheer savagery of the extremely brutal attacks include: an elderly farmer whose head was opened by an axe; a lady of 84 who was repeatedly raped; a year old baby set alight; farmers strangled, garrotted; mutilated, dumped

There are lessons to be learned here. We all need to do what we can to prevent our own societies from falling into situations where decay is normal and death hangs so closely over us all.

We will here more from Paul and his team in the future. I hope to provide you with an account of one of their rescue operations soon. In the mean time while our governments choose to remain silent about this creeping genocide, we can at least pray for our friends who want nothing more than to work their land in peace. BR
