The father of "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius – the Olympic star accused of murdering his girlfriend – has been accused of racism after he claimed the family needed guns to protect themselves because they could not rely on South Africa's police.

"Some of the [family’s] guns are for hunting and some are for protection, the handguns," Henke Pistorius told The Telegraph. "It speaks to the ANC government, look at white crime levels, why protection is so poor in this country, it's an aspect of our society."

He added: "You can't rely on the police, not because they are inefficient always but because crime is so rife."

His father’s mention of “white crime levels” and the lack of protection from the government sparked an angry reaction from the ANC, which has been in power since the country’s first democractic elections in 1994, following the fall of apartheid.

ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu told The Associated Press that it "rejects with contempt" any suggestion that the government doesn't adequately protect white South Africans against crime.

Like so many moronic parents they will support their offspring (as created by a late night 'Legover') even if they killed 1000 innocent people in cold blood.
Talk about being in DENIAL and I don't mean that river in Egypt.

The dark skins do the same thing here. They have a violent strand of DNA.
