You know, I get that we have to do all these additional things for the World Cup (new stadiums, following FIFA standards, changing roads,etc.) but I really don’t think that security should be one of them. What has changed that makes it suddenly possible for our special forces to actually do their jobs? More money? A better incentive? The knowledge that the entire world will be watching?

I keep reading all these reports about the alleged Human Trafficking case in Kempton Park this morning, where they say that security has been ‘beefed up’ or their has been an ‘increased focus’, ahead of the 2010 Soccer World Cup, and I just can’t understand why the Soccer World Cup should make a difference. Why weren’t we doing this before? What are we doing differently? Are you saying that if it weren’t for the World Cup all those Thai women would not have been rescued? I don’t know about you but I’d like to know what that means exactly, because as far as I am concerned, when it comes to our country’s security and the peoples safety, we should always be at our best!

People die everyday because of completely preventable crimes (such as prostitution, child abuse and human trafficking). We don’t even hear about half of it, but all of a sudden the security for these things are ‘beefed up’! I think somebody needs to explain this to me, because I am just not getting it…
