Gangsters in Uniform, a collaborative film by the Delft Safety group, highlights everyday challenges faced by ordinary South African citizens and the major shortcomings when dealing with the police, whose most important tasks should be to keep their communities safe, prevent crime from happening and support citizens in their time of need. A key theme highlighted throughout the film is how deeply corruption has taken hold in Delft. Many police officers participate in the local drug economy and there are clear connections made between them, who are meant to uphold the law, and those who break it. These relationships are most often fuelled by greed and the quest for monetary gain. The film illustrates how easy is it is for innocent people to be brought into harm’s way when police officials neglect their civic duties and abuse their power over South African citizens. This has resulted in a situation where police are now feared more than gangsters who ride through the streets of Delft wielding guns in broad daylight. For people living in Delft, these untouchable gangsters in uniform pose the biggest threat to civil liberty, to their freedom, and in so doing, represent an oppression that turns back the clock in our country by at least 50 years.
