In the light of the bail hearing for athlete Oscar Pistorius last week it came to light how police stumbled and fumbled through investigations. Police investigator Hilton Botha possibly contaminated the crime scene and faced attempted murder charges himself, placing even more strain on the credibility of the police. In recruiting personal the police have in a large way neglected the the quality of the personal recruited. It is in this lack of trust that guns thrive. (AP Photo/Cobus Bodenstein)
