Special Report Transcript Episode 30, Section 2, Time 10:03

We were busy withdrawing and if this person had not thrown a hand grenade there would have been no shooting. // That is exactly my point. Why did that shooting take place? There were several police officers there. There was the possibility that you could prevent that these people could get away. You could confront them with the fact that you were in control of the situation. There were police surrounding you and they couldn’t get away. // No if a person has an AK47 gun and they ran to and fro and they could shoot you it doesn’t work like that.

Notes: Major Adolf Odendal (Former Riot Squad); Denzil Potgieter
