A private security company in Johannesburg is making its presence felt worldwide after a video started trending, quickly getting close to two million views in under a month.
The video posted on YouTube quickly sparked up a conversation about South Africa and security companies in general.
This is what head of No Jack had to say about the incident:
We drove on the freeway when this red car was noticed. The plates seemed to be out of place for that model.
We contacted the police control room to check if the vehicle was sought. They replied that a vehicle with a similar description was involved in a robbery and attempted murder a short while back in the Benoni area. We decided to observe it for a while.
It was clear they noticed us observing them, The rest of the video will speak for itself.
We are experts in vehicle-related crimes and therefore we also know what to look for and how to act. Whether a vehicle is standing still without any people in it or whether it is driving we have training that shows that the vehicle may be either stolen or was or are involved in serious and violent crimes.
So to those who talk about profiling we profile any vehicle irrespective of the occupants. The vehicle is primary and the occupants are just part of it. 32 years of experience teaches that which books cannot teach.
We are in service of the people law-abiding people of our country and we will stand in the gap for others. It is our privilege to serve.
Take a look at the footage below.
