No shenanigans, they've set phasers to kill.

That's right. If you were planning on bringing flares, smoke bombs, or Millwall bricks to Johannesburg, you might want to repack your matchday satchel.

The new national police commissioner in the world's deadliest and most criminal country (50 murders a day) has revealed that he plans to meet any and all shenanigans with some serious brute force. South Africa will be the world's stage next summer, so it's no surprise that deputy security minister, Susan Shabangu, also supports the stronger arm of the law.

"I will not tolerate pathetic excuses"

"Aiming her words at police chiefs, she said of criminals: "You must kill the bastards if they threaten you or the community. You must not worry about the regulations - that is my responsibility. Your responsibility is to serve and protect.

"I want no warning shots. You have one shot and it must be a kill shot.

"Criminals are hell-bent on undermining the law and they must now be dealt with. End of story." DailyMail

It has brought up fears among some that it may bring back apartheid style policing, with the notoriously trigger happy law enforcers of the 50's and 60's. If you still plan on witnessing the World Cup in person, just be sure to be on your best behavior, and try to stay away from the cops and robbers.
