This sickening video emerged today of South African police officers tying a man to their van and dragging him through the streets. The man later died.
The victim, 27-year-old Mido Macia, a Mozambican immigrant, was found dead in police custody just two hours after being arrested for the parking dispute in the Daveyton township.
The taxi driver’s distraught family said all he had done was argue with the police over an alleged parking violation.
The incident brings fresh embarrassment to the country’s criminal justice system which is under intense international scrutiny due to the high profile Oscar Pistorius murder trial.
