On my way back to campus from church this man catcalled me and continued to say disgusting things about my body and that I should get into the car with them.

After swearing at him and telling him he should be ashamed of what he’s doing especially in his uniform, him and his colleague (the driver) asked if I have a problem and then followed me down the street to Noswal.

“just call the police” but what’s supposed to happen if they’re the ones harassing you? @SAPoliceService why even @ you if you’re not even going to do anything about it. i’m so sorry you had to go through this💔💔
 
In reply to @lightupastate
We gonna retweet until his boss, colleagues and wife/girlfriend sees this
 
In reply to @lightupastate
It's distrubing how some of our brothers don't see, or see, but choose to ignore the fact that this is harassment and that it shouldn't be done. Its really dissapointing. As a man Im ashamed. Im sorry you had to go through that especially by pigs disguised as a policemen.

Most of our cops are definitely killers & rapists, that I’m sure about 🤞🏾
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
Can you share details when this haened and where?
 
Report this incident and the officer urgently to the Independent police Investigative directorate (IPID). Their Gauteng and Jhb offices are listed please google them.
 
In reply to @lightupastate
Babes, what he(they) do is disturbing, some of them instead of fighting and preventing crime they harrass women and start crimes. Maybe it's because they have zero accountability or no honor in their jobs. This is way the crime rate in SA is so high. Nkosi yiza ngokwakho🙏🙌
 
In reply to @lightupastate
I'm sorry @lightupastate. I'm an old, old Witsie & I know how unsafe it can be moving around Braamfontein & campus as a woman. Doubly awful if it's the cops who are supposed to protect people. Hope you're okay.

I want to fight him!!! 🤬. I’m so sorry boo .

I have a strict rule at my factory for all my guys. Any lady passing by in the road is free to pass by without being whistled at or catcalled or interfered with in any way. They know the consequences of such actions result in a server reprimand or possible disciplinary action.

Twitter is destroying lives... Even if I post a tweet everyone is going to believe me without proof. People will retweet for likes people these days believe anything hayiiii . That's nonsense
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
This actually happens a lot, there is an officer that waits for me near my afternoon classes and cat calls.
 
How are we meant to feel safe when the people who are meant to enforce it are doing things like this ?
 
In reply to @lightupastate
I sincerely hope that justice is served. It is actually more scary coming from them they protect their own. Prayers coming your way xxx 💞
 
You see, it starts here! Where men think it’s okay to catcall and we must just answer and smile and entertain! I always call this out & make it clear I do not need to say hi to you or entertain your disgusting disrespectful ways! Leave me alone! I do NOT have to answer to you!
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
Each police vehicle has a unique number on it. Together with that number and the exact time you can figure out who it was. Go to the nearest police station and make a complaint. There are many sick people in the SAP using their uniform as a disguise.
 
A cop. A whole entire cop cat called & harrased a woman. I've also been cat called & harrased by cops before, that's why I don't trust them. @SAPoliceService

In reply to @lightupastate
So happy this tweet is doing numbers, giving him the attention they’re desperate for. So sorry you had to go through all of that from the people are supposed to protect us. 😞
 
 
“Just call the police” Right, yes, okay got it.

I'll say this again, there is no way women will get justice when the police are the same abusers and rapists we talk about.

Instead of taking a video you asked him to smile and take a pic?
 
In reply to @lightupastate
Will @SAPoliceService @GenBheki_Cele @IPID_ZA charge this Officer, or will they shield him. Any outrage from #ANCWL and EFF?
 
In reply to @lightupastate
As an official such behavior is not permitted in uniform and driving a state vehicle. He is identifiable, just go to the local police station and lodge a harassment complaint, they will find him. He must be ashamed of himself. Apologies for our ( men) bad behavior .
 
I'm so sorry ❤️. You see why women do not trust the police. Fok maan every man is trash. Nonke nje.
 
In reply to @lightupastate
I can imagine the court session. 💂🎓 Did he swear at you : No Did you swear at him :Yes. 😕
 
ironically they are the ones who are supposed to protect us. But ke what can you possible think? He is a man after all naye 🙃🚮

I'm so sorry baby❤, this is so disgusting 😡!!
 
In reply to @lightupastate
are you going to do something about this predator or?
 
In reply to @lightupastate
This department @SAPoliceService has collapsed, we were harrassed by a drunk SAPS official at Standerton MP, whilst being attacked by a taxi driver. Instead of protecting us (2 ladies and children) he defended the other drunkard who almost bumped into us at a 4 way stop..

if this march was genuine, please make our daughters, sisters and mothers safe! Are we asking too much of you? twitter.com/SAPoliceServic…
 
Our police force are not only illiterate, bereft of competence and application - but are also the biggest purveyors of GBV due to the their power intoxication and little regard for ethics.
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
I don't condone such behaviour by our @SAPoliceService but just a picture without any proof or evidence is soo not cool what if @lightupastate is not telling us the whole story..
 
In reply to @lightupastate
senzenjani uma sekwamaphoyisa who are perverts??? Who should we report them to?
 
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
I'm so sorry mtase. I really am. 😢😢
 
There's no pride in The Uniform, just criminals wearing blue
 
In reply to @lightupastate
You girls 😂confuse us. When they promise you money 💰you don’t tell us.
 
Are these the same male police officers who were marching against GBV and rape culture last week or whenever?

So so sorry sweetheart😪❤

Police men are men first before they’re police- Trevor Moah
 
In reply to @lightupastate
You must report this to the IPID, we don't need people with this kind of behavior in our Police force! Imagine how many people did they do this to?
 
Then y’all wanna ask why we don’t report rapes, sexual assault/harassment etc. 😡

I am really sorry you had to go through this😔♥️
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
and @HermanMashaba This bahviour of our officials is not acceptable. Can we please address this.
 
 
Is this the same @SAPoliceService that was marching the other day?
 
 
 
 
 
In reply to @lightupastate
You keep employing these predators & expect them to treat survivors with respect?
 
 
Absolutely revolting! @SAPoliceService it's disgusting the amount of times I've had similar experiences. Your visible policing officers need to be disciplined for this sort of behavior.
