The state of South Africa’s police forces came into sharp focus last week during Pistorius' bail hearing where police stumbled and fumbled in the bail hearing of Pistorius who is charged with the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The judicial system and its ruthless police force was the backbone of the racist Apartheid system. Now, almost two decades after Mandela ended the all-white regime in 1994, this system is creaking under corruption and mismanagement. (AP Photo/File)
