Flip my heart hurts when I see news article after news article about senseless killing. Lucky was shot and died after fleeing the scene in an apparent botched hijacking in Rosettenville, Johannesburg last night. He was dropping off his son, who although was unharmed was witness to the whole event. At 43 he was still young and undoubtedly robbed of years of his life. I'm not the hugest fan of his music but his passing saddens me. Not necessarily because the world was robbed of a great musician but because the government or someone has to do something.......surely. This is what a foreign website has to say about the state of crime in S.A.

"South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world, with nearly 20,000 homicides last year. Many of the killings occur during robberies and hijackings. These are common in a country where one-half of the population lives on less than $2 (about R14) per day"
