The cartoon is not factually correct, as shown by Judge Goldstone's Commission of Inquiry, which found no evidence of police involvement in the Boipatong massacre. The police also do not drive open land rover-type vehicles where they would be sitting ducks to snipers. Neither is there a 911 emergency call number in South Africa. And people in South Africa drive right-handed vehicles not left-handed as drawn in the cartoon. W. Davidson, Richards Bay, South Africa
