Heartless, Shameless and Depressing

Sometimes something comes to to light or hits the news that really makes my heart ache and inspires complete and unadulterated wrath. As much as this blog has mentioned the savagery of black men and how they are able to torture and rape at will seemingly without any remorse, sometimes you come across the same kind of white men. Men who seem to take joy in inflicting pain on others.

The story of Raymond Buys, 15 and the manner in which he was tortured over weeks and finally killed is as sad as any - I cannot even bring myself to repeat it. The men who perpetrated the evil that this murder involved are some of the lowest forms of life to ever breathe. If even half of what is alleged to have happened turns out to be true this has to be one of the most horrific instances of child abuse and murder we have ever seen. 

Court hears of teen's terrible torture

Johannesburg - Shocking evidence was heard in the Vereeniging Regional Court about how a 15-year-old boy was tortured and abused prior to his death at a training camp for game rangers.

Gerhard Oosthuizen, 19, testified how his tent partner Raymond Buys, 15, was chained to his bed every night, was not allowed to go to the bathroom and was forced to relieve himself next to his bed, reported Volksblad.

Tears flowed in the court when Oosthuizen testified how Buys was too weak to work, walked hunched over and was once made to eat his own faeces when he was caught defecating in a field.

“His hands were tied and he was made to eat it,” said Oosthuizen.

Buys was allegedly beaten with pipes, planks and sticks if he made mistakes or didn’t do his work properly. He was also beaten with a whip made from a garden hose. 

He said Buys was once forced to eat washing powder than he had knocked over, resulting in the teen throwing up and having diarrhoea for two weeks.  

Oosthuizen said shortly before Buys was hospitalised, he saw how the boy was taken to a rondavel by the owner of the camp, Alex de Koker and Michael Erasmus. When he peered inside, he saw Buys tied to a chair, naked, with a pillow cover over his head and being shocked with a stun gun.

“He was screaming…I got scared and ran away.”

Oosthuizen said they received no training in this time and were made to do manual labour around the camp. 

De Koker, 49, and Erasmus, 20, are facing several charges including murder, child abuse, neglect and assault.
