    Pretty sad, I imagine having this happen to your daughter would push a lot of people over the edge.

    The player is alleged to have killed the men in revenge for the gang rape of his daughter, who contracted HIV as a result of her assault.

    South African police said the black player hacked his victims to death with an axe. One was decapitated. Others were assaulted, but managed to escape. The player's identity is being withheld from publication to prevent his daughter from being identified...

    A police source said: "He didn't seem to make any effort to try and conceal himself. He was just driving around the townships in a car, then he would get out and attack someone.

    "It was almost like he wanted to wipe out all the men from one particular area of the township. He must have been driven insane by what had happened to his daughter."
    ...
    The player is due to appear in Durban Magistrates' Court this morning. Police are still investigating whether he acted alone. He will be charged formally with three counts of murder and one of attempted murder.

    Many South Africans had wrongly assumed he is white and that therefore there may have been a racial element to the attacks, but a police spokesman yesterday confirmed that he is black.

    As wrong as it sounds, if someone did that to my daughter (not that I have a daughter...) that's what I'd want to do to the people that raped her. I haven't read the article, but hopefully he only went after the people that did it to her and didn't attack any innocent bystanders.

    I agree with you

    Aw man, I'd be pretty ****ed off if someone gangraped my daughter and gave her aids... but hacking people to death with an axe? You would probably want to, but you would stop yourself, surely.

    Um, I think most people in this thread have clearly failed to read or fail to understand. He didn't go out and get revenge against the people who raped his daughter. He just randomly attacked any men that he saw, killing 3 of them. As awful as the case is, what he has done is far more disgusting than what the burglars/rapists did.

    South Africa is as good as war torn with the horrific amounts of rapes comitted every single day.
    I read many horror stories coming from that country and whole families being tied up and raped constantly of periods of ours is fairly common. I am almost ashamed to say this but I wonder of apartied was such a bad thing. At least SA was a hundreds of times safer than it is now.

    He killed three SA blacks and probably reduced the crime rate doing so.
