Angry Edenpark residents burn stolen Red-Ant equipment after some of the Red-Ants, (a rag-tag private security company tasked with evictions and other dirty jobs) killed a man during evictions in Edenpark near Alberton, Gauteng. After the Red Ants apparently beat a man to death, for trying to stop them assaulting his wife during an eviction, the illegal residents of Edenpark went on the rampage. They really wanted to attack the Red-Ants, the crowd consisted mostly of older woman, rough young girls, some really young drunk looking boys and a lot of really drunk looking men, but I'll tell you, the Red-Ants were lucky the cops were there, these people were so wound up that they wanted to tear the Red-Ants apart... and to tell the truth, I reckon they would have done it quite easily. The Red-Ants sit around under police guard from angry residents that want to attack them.

Police crime scene investigators comb through the mangled remains of the cash-in-transit van that was held up this morning. A group forced the van off the road under a bridge, fired some shots at the windows, then used explosives to open the van.It's started... Every year around November the cash-in-transit robberies increase dramatically. We journalists joke that it's because the thugs want their Christmas bonus, but its simply cause there's more money changing hands around this time. One thing I know there will be many more... These guys were not playing, they used explosives to blow the back of the van open, but they still couldn't get any of the cash.
