SA can’t deal as cop takes a break from catching crooks to have a picnic

2 min read

South Africans have been left both laughing out loud and speechless after one local shared a snap of a police officer making use of his work van to have a romantic picnic. In the snap, the cop and his lady friend can be seen chilling next to the van with a cooler-box and all.

South African police officer catches smoke for canoodling with a work vehicle

Many of us have been told a number of times that South African police officers are facing a shortage of police vans which has resulted in a problematic late response when they are called during emergencies.

One cop has left many South Africans questioning whether or not there really is a shortage of police vehicles after he was spotted chilling beside his police van while having what appeared to be a nice and relaxed picnic with his significant other. The cop in question was not wearing a police uniform.

The photo was shared on Facebook user Buhlebenkosi Morris who hilariously captioned the post:

“I usually catch criminals, but now I caught feelings for you, baby girl”

South Africans are flabbergasted

Many locals had no words for the cop and his picnic while others simply laughed it off. Many didn’t seem to have a problem with the police officer using his official work vehicle for personal business.

A drunk cop makes headlines

Earlier this year we reported about a traffic officer in Lydenburg, Mpumalanga went viral for all the wrong reasons.

Footage of his drunken malaise through a local shopping centre angered social media users nationwide. There are now calls for the cop to be suspended, following the “contravention of his civic duty”.
