Default Re: Rumor: Corrie Sanders shot and killed

Sanders used to be a cop in Johannesburg and I would be surprised if he didn't try to take action when a party he was attending was stormed by armed gangsters. I am certain he went down swinging like a hero, looks like he gave his life in order to protect others.

How stupid do you have to be to rob a restaurant? How much money could you possibly get?

Ya its completely ****ing retarded. Probably not very much. But in South Africa.....Not very much might be enough of an insentive to do it. The place is ****ed. I don't want to be a dick to a country but it seems like SA badly needs to clean its shit up. I've done a lot of travelling and have been to many places that are far more poor then south africa but they have better rule of law because people policed themselves. It doesn't seem like that happens very much in SA.

He was damn near close to beating Rahman as well.

And he was gutsy against Vitaly.

Good fighter. I loved his emotions during the Wlad fight.

Very sad that Corrie passed away :(
