Death of a son

Ernest Hoon (18)

I have updated the count of white South African farmers and their families killed since the end 0f Apartheid in 1994 to 3,102 so as to include 18 year old Ernest Hoon, shot in his own bed earlier this month and who died trying to protect his parents and sister.

I have posted further details of Ernest Hoon's murder and that of 23 year old white urban South African Conrad Griss, who was shot dead only yesterday, at South of the Zambezi, which can be read by clicking here.

Brave, brave lad, he will be missed by his family and friends. Of that I am sure. I will pray for them, not that it will make them feel any better.

Imagine waiting for someone to fall asleep before shooting them. You do not get a more cowardice way to kill someone. Keep in mind that this is not a special forces operation where having the opposite forces asleep serves as an advantage.

His parents and sister should be extremly proud of their son and brother. I wish them all the best as they mourne his passing.
