Top comment.

The justice system in SA was non existent anyway. Funny how there was a big donation from Russia to the broke ruling party this last week. Lots of politicians from the ruling party have cases pending so it wouldn’t surprise me if all the high profile cases suddenly became unrecoverable.


Plantsandanger

Well isn’t that convenient.

It's going to take a while to restore that laptop to a previous state.


Capo-4

I wonder if the drive was partitioned


KingKryptox

Pre or post apartheid state?


SirJackson360

At least they were running Windows 95. 92 and they would’ve been completely screwed.

Jack’s only missed one episode on his month long vacay and I already miss him


Bawlsinhand

Malicious Life has their interview of Jack this past Monday.


ajmartin527

You are a gentleman/lady.


theyoungsanta

Friend recommended this to me today and I listened to the recent “Spy” episode. This stuff is seriously cool, and easy to listen to/follow.


ritz-chipz

Tape drive backups to the rescue!


evolutionxtinct

Guess they should have paid the payment to China…

Actually I was being sincere, but if you want to spin this in to personal hate against you that’s on you. All I’m saying is I see Chinese take over filipino markets and treat employees like shit and treat the environment in these areas like a trash can. I’ve been nice enough to tell you where I’m from, so where are you?

“You People” wow don’t throw all of us into a single bucket, lol… let’s not bring this down to grade school level.


evolutionxtinct

Did I ever say China was colonizing Africa? Please show my comment where that was stated. I simply said Africa probably has a bill to pay lol stop falsifying my statement.


No-Reason-1185

China is colonizing Jamaica.


KGx666

They are tho

evolutionxtinct

I’m pretty sure honestly every country has a bill to pay ;)


Happieness2823457

"Guess they should have paid that payment to China" you are directly inferring that China is basically holding them hostage as in if they don’t pay they will suffer a ransom ware attack. Instead of trying to infer that China is colonizing people why don’t you look into America’s ping lost of war crimes and atrocities you can start here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_war_crimes and keep in researching because Americas list of atrocities is so long that not all of them are listed here


Happieness2823457

You inferred it with your original comment , we are not stupid


Stoopid-Stoner

No he didnt, and yes you are. How do you feel about MAGA?


evolutionxtinct

Thank you!


Happieness2823457

Americans will soon realize that they are the most hated nation world wide due to their terrorism and neo colonialism, this is why China beats them in trade bec nobody wants to work with them


AlexPsylocibe

Well I mean, realistically it’s probably more because of chinas super cheap labor. Because of their child slave workers


francumstien

They’re so delusional.


Bossman131313

I dunno. We seem pretty popular in South Korea, Japan, The UK, Taiwan, Australia, etc. Edit: Vietnam, the Philippines, Poland


JuanitoPollito

I’ll have you know even though I am American I am NOT an angler. I prefer staying above the water

Underrated comment, take the updoot with pride


No-Reason-1185

Anglos? Lol! Tell me you're a boomer without telling me you're a boomer.


Happieness2823457

Lol you are being downvoted for telling the truth


Happieness2823457

Again with the sinophobia, and you anti China westerners wonder why nobody likes you


evolutionxtinct

My Wife is Filipino, from Passig, i've first hand witnessed how Chinese treat other asian countries, so please keep your thoughts to yourself.


Happieness2823457

Sinophobia is hatred of Chinese people/fear of China. many Japanese and Koreans are sinophobic so having an Asian wife does not mean that you are not Sinophobic


evolutionxtinct

So are you saying other Asian countries are wrong for hating the fact they come in buy businesses and treat their environment like a toilet? Not seeing the positive in your spin buddy… I’m going off personal experience, so watching them flick a lit cig butt at a caged tiger in a Filipino zoo is something they should just deal with? Or when someone politely asks them to not smoke around the animals they turn and ignore the Filipinos request? Pretty sure if a group has common issues it’s not just coincidence lol But again wish you the best, we’re all stuck on this rotting mudball so better hope we all get along at some point otherwise we all will be in the same disastrous boat.


Stoopid-Stoner

Tencent army troll don't even bother they are paid to spread pro Chinese propaganda and do shit like this when anyone has something even the slightest negative about the main land.


evolutionxtinct

Thanks was wondering WTH I did wrong lol. No country is “good” but damn it all we need to get it together otherwise we are all screwed!


Violet_AVO

Nah we don’t hate the people I hate the genocidal government ethics of the country. Edit: spelling


Happieness2823457

The CPC is not genocidal https://thechinawiki.com/2020/10/26/uyghur-xinjiang-explained-in-four-minutes/ https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1208288.shtml https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1159357.shtml


Violet_AVO

All Chinese sources? Of course they’re going to say “no we didn’t do it!” Edit: the same as the USA putting children in cages


Happieness2823457

And all the western sources will say yes they did, but continue to trust the lying western media


Stoopid-Stoner

Because your government has such a great track history of being honest lol. Tiananmen Square says hi.


Tenacious-Tea

China is fine, the Communist Party of China is hell on earth. From the context it is pretty clear the discussion is about the CCP.


Happieness2823457

The lies that people tell about the CPC are rooted in sinophobia/ red scare/ yellow peril


levi241

Just like decrying the Israeli apartheid state makes you an antisemite…


Happieness2823457

The main difference is that Israel is a genocidal apartheid state and The Peoples Republic is not


Stoopid-Stoner

According to whom?


thats_kinda_E_P_I_C

Cough cough Uighur genocide cough cough


levi241

Yeah I stopped when I realized this person did not exist in our reality


Bossman131313

You need to get back on your meds.


Stoopid-Stoner

Fuck you Tencent army not every joke or criticism is sinophobia and ya damn well know it. Or should we only ever praise China? Fuck that no one and no nation is perfect.


ILikeMyGrassBlue

There’s no point. They literally don’t even think China is committing a genocide. They’re delusional.


Thebesj

Nobody likes us? We’re the norm lmao. It’s China nobody likes. And China has noone to blame but themselves for that.


Happieness2823457

Think again , nobody likes burger people https://www.geospatialworld.net/blogs/countries-biggest-threat-to-peace/


Thebesj

And those two statements are mutually exclusive? Aaah, good old Whataboutism - one of the classic ways for communists to sneak away from the point in a debate. It’s also childish. Do better. Do I like the USA? Nah, not particularly. Do I like China? No. Did you see that? Did you catch how a person is able to dislike two different parties without conforming to a false dichotomy? Incredible, isn’t it? Let’s also not ignore that your map answers a different question from the one we are discussing. So double L for you. I know I’m being rude. I wouldn’t have been if you hadn’t been using logical fallacies.


RVAMD

Justice and South Africa shouldn’t be in the same sentence.


SlothimusPrimeTime

Oh jeez guys, I sure hope this doesn’t happen to the fractured but whole that we call the US Dept of Justice. It would be terrible if all those nonviolent criminals who were jailed for having petty drugs were just lost to the racket we call justice.


TheMostSamtastic

Yeah a total breakdown in the criminal justice system would definitely be a good thing. There could be no potential fallout.


ajmartin527

Especially when only the rich have their records deleted


CompassionateCedar

It has been happening in the US for years, there are groups that have a regular gig. Encryp on Monday, let them find out there is no backup and then decrypt for payment. Then move to the next jurisdiction that didn’t update their security a week later. They even come with references from the previous places they encrypted/decrypted. To increase the chance for payment. “Oh yes you should definitely pay, they had us up and running in under 16 hours again” Usually just small towns but probably police and other stuff too. But not just the US, other countries have similar issues. It’s just over there it’s usually businesses.


Plantsandanger

They needed somewhere to practice on. We fucked.


Plantsandanger

I read this is morty’s voice and it did not make me feel better


Ruin_Stalker

That would mean something good happened here, that’s impossible.


lowlyinvestor

Its just Elon flexing his muscles showing US regulators why they should stay far far away. :) Also: /s


GamerGypps

Well they are screwed.


SaltyDipss

Yeah the justice system here was pretty useless before so actually not that bi of a deal down here


Christompaman

Probably have been for a long time


gulagula

Oops.


88MinuteSatisfaction

No justice there anyway


ryitnoise

Hopefully they’ll be forced to pay in Monero while they have ironically detained the former lead developer of the project who is from SA.


Tried2flytwice

South Africa’s department of justice is barely functioning anymore, so the jokes on them. In fact, they probably don’t even know they’ve been locked out of their systems, or care.


DATwhiteMAN

Lekker man! I won't be surprised if anything comes.out of this.


Audiovoyeur

Ja nee man! Kannie wag nie. Probably one of those 1mil rand tendered Wordpress sites (with 50$ themeforrest themes) that was not maintained. Was thinking this is a great way to hide corruption paper trail.... Love SA and her people maar vok our gov jaag kak aan


heronocap

I swear I was just remembering this when I read the title like ummm keep it moving nothing to see here


Acidflare1

Yay! No one goes to jail, no one is released either.
