Domestic Violence Charity Creates Intentionally Offensive PSA (NSFW)

A provocative new public service announcement asks viewers to consider which is more offensive: the “F-word” or domestic abuse.

SA school violence ‘out of hand’

Parliament – South African pupils still experienced higher levels of violence on schools than most other countries in the world, MPs were told on Tuesday.

“The 20 percent violence in schools is high by international comparisons,” Whittle said.

“There are a few countries that have a higher rate of violence [than South Africa] like Jamaica for example…”

Whittle said deploying police to schools was only a short term solution to specific incidents, with the department opting to adopt a long term approach to stem school violence.
