19 Jun 2017, Cape Town: Members, Friends, Visitors, Capetonians, Kraaifonteiners, South Africa... Read this letter, written by John Bond, the father of a 8 year old girl who was murdered by a drunk driver.
TRUE LIFE STORY...
Baby Girl... Daddy is meeting with an Advocate today, I have done everything I can and have been ignored now I need the power to force them to listen. I wont accept that your murder be down-scaled to anything less than the truth.
I wont accept that the State does not prosecute them for loading you into their car and driving away with you. How can the authorities allow Drunks to handle their victims without consequence, what message are they sending to criminals?
How can they turn a blind eye to such horror when there were so many who could have helped you. How do they expect me to accept that your killer and his passenger could pick you up when you were so badly injured and load you into their car?
My mind has never stopped thinking about the pain you must have suffered at their hands...
They say there is NO CHARGES because the passenger picked you up and not the driver, (how absurd) they say there's no charges because the killers neighbor drove the car away with you.
They say they "rushed" you to hospital, yet they took 20-minutes to get to a hospital which is only 6 minutes from the scene... NO EXPLANATION GIVEN - I must just accept - BUT I WONT, They are protecting the criminals.
After knocking down my child causing severe injuries the driver and the passenger ignored the first witness on the scene who tried calling the ambulance and police and picked her up and loaded her into their car.
The killers neighbor jumped into the car and the three left the scene with my child. They dropped her at the local clinic 20 minutes later - it is only 6 minutes away. 1.7km from where she was struck.
She was deceased when she arrived at the clinic, no heartbeat, no pulse and not breathing. The culprits tried to leave the hospital before police were called, only the nurse calling for the security to lock the gates stopped them.
The prosecutor and the NPA refuse to charge them with picking up my child and transporting her even though there were many people who heard and saw the impact and could have helped her.
I will not accept that Reckless Drunk Speeding criminals can pick up their victims and clear the scene. They did not try to help her, their actions were to help them self by removing evidence and clearing the scene which is virtually IN FRONT of the Day Care center run by the killers parents. She had so many multiple injuries...
HOW CAN THE AUTHORITIES ALLOW DRUNKS TO CAUSE FURTHER HARM TO VICTIMS BY HANDLING THEIR BODIES WHILE OTHERS ARE CALLING FOR AN AMBULANCE!
It is absurd that this can be allowed on our roads! PLEASE HELP ME BRING CHARGES AGAINST THEM - THE STATE REFUSES!!! What horror are they bringing to our roads condoning such actions?
Please Support by buying a bumper sticker to help us with litigation to expose the truth and get JUSTICE for Nadia - we can't rely on the State!
Respect yourself, respect others, let's keep these comments respectfully.
