Grey Power calls for compulsory military training

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.
