Calls for compulsory military training
What is our society coming to when an elderly gentleman, on a walker, is attacked leaving the RSA? This follows hot on
the heels of other well-publicised and cowardly acts against elderly, and Grey Power is sick of it. It is about time
that we demanded better.
Grey Power National President, Roy Reid is disgusted and says that anyone convicted of assaulting a superannuitant
should automatically face a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 3 years. Maybe if we bring back compulsory military
training for youths we could have the ambulance at the top of the cliff. This country is under direct threat from
within. We need a society with respect, for people and property, with discipline, pride and with skills and leadership
qualities. We believe that military training can provide that and would prove much more cost effective than the
inevitable prison sentences and many of the training schemes that are currently on offer. This would also provide a
force of civilians who are trained in emergency situations that can be utilised if needed.
