Controversial website to expose crime

South Africans are no strangers to crime, but even they are shocked by the recent spate of violence in their country.  One South African, mr. Neil Watson, has had enough.  He is the mastermind of a controversial website, entitled "Crime barometer of South Africa", which is due for launch on 4 July 2006. 

Mr. Watson intends to raise awareness of crime in South Africa, especially among potential tourists.  Despite some harsh criticism from government officials (some of which accused him of being unpatriotic) and several death threats, he is intent on fulfilling his plans for the website.

The website will contain cold, clinical information and statistics on crime in South Africa.  Watson has warned that it will contain some graphic crime-scene images and is not intended for sensitive viewers.
