A disturbing incident unfolded in Pretoria when a drunk police officer caused an accident and attempted to flee the scene. The shocking incident was captured on video and shared on social media, sparking outrage and raising concerns about the behavior of law enforcement officers.
Witnesses and videos posted online indicate that a drunk police officer hit a woman on a motorcycle in Pretoria.
The officer, rather than accepting responsibility for his actions, fled the scene, leaving the injured woman behind. However, alert drivers spotted the criminal and stopped him before he could get away.
Unsettlingly, the video shows other officers on the scene trying to protect the intoxicated officer and discouraging witnesses from filming the incident. The public and witnesses alike are outraged by this action and now question the honesty and accountability of law enforcement.
