I found that article I was talking about here it is: How to avoid trouble indeed… I give a great big @$%#^ you to the govt for this information. It should read “How to avoid trouble. Do not commit any crimes.”  But no it is the victims who have to modify their behavior in order to help the hijacker with his job, not the hijacker who should fear getting shot or arrested….

How to avoid trouble
Tips from South Africa's National Hijack Prevention Academy, which yesterday gave a day-long course to British diplomats:

·  If any person or vehicle in a high-risk area arouses your suspicions, treat it as hostile and take appropriate action. A fine for driving through a red light is preferable to an attack.

·  When forced to drive with a hijacker, be observant without making direct eye contact and try to memorize as many details as possible.

·  Do not challenge the hijacker. Surrender your vehicle and move away. Keep your hands still and visible to the hijacker, to assure him of your passive content.

·  If about to be shot turn to the side, reducing the target you present by a third. Lift your shoulders and pull your neck in. Do not turn your back -- the front of your body has more bone and rib-cage to protect your internal organs.

BOSS: "Well there is proof now."
Sipho: "Hai-bo! Seri-aaass?"
BOSS: "Yes absolutely. After you left early yesterday to go to your brother's funeral, he came here looking for you."
Sipho: "Eeishh..."

36-jarige Paul du Toit, 'n geheime agent in die Weermag tydens die laaste jare van wit oorheerste Suid Afrika, glo hy het sy gewelddadige lewe agtergelaat.
