JOHANNESBURG - For the second time in six months, South Africa's police have won themselves global attention for all the wrong reasons.

The lead detective in the Oscar Pistorius murder investigation was taken off the case on Thursday after it emerged he was facing seven attempted murder charges for opening fire on a minibus full of passengers.

South African police have drawn criticism at home for their failure to bring down one of the world's highest crime rates, as well as perceptions that officers lack basic skills and that political clout, not ability, determines promotion.
