NO ONE TO TRUST: Preliminary results from a Manenberg crime survey
A survey of crime in Manenberg reveals the hold that gangs still have on the community. Many believe the police take protection money from gangsters, and most doubt the police’s ability to protect witnesses in a murder trial. Public knowledge about drugs is high, especially among the youth, which suggests open drug markets that can only exist when enforcement is lax. It is not surprising then that local public opinion of the police is much more negative than that recorded in a recent national victim survey.
