I agree.

He said he was sleeping, heard the intruder in his bathroom, grabbed his gun and blasted away. Then he went back to bed and noticed his girlfriend wasn't there. The dude doesn't even know how to concoct a half-ass decent alibi. He also said he didn't have his legs on, but then he said when he found out it was her, he picked her up and ran downstairs.

Do they have the death penalty in S. Africa?

Default Re: Olympian Oscar "Blade Runner" Pistorius Charged with Murdering his Girlfriend

In his court appearance yesterday his lawyers ate the one detective alive on cross exam. He admitted no bloody cricket bat, her skull wasn't crushed, the witness that heard the argument was 600 meters away, that the steroids were legal herbal remedy. Another cop that was at the scene testified that the crime scene fit pistorius story.

I have two questions
1) how long where they living together?. Is it all possible he wasn't use to her being there?
2) what is the bullet trajectory? He said he was on his stumps and then put legs on before taking her downstairs

I tend to believe he is guilty right no but want to see more evidence in the case. Shooting in pitch black dark is against one of the main rules of gun safety. Know your target and what is beyond it.

This ESPN article will help answer your questions:
http://espn.go.com/olympics/trackand...way-police-say

This is the most interesting case I have seen in a while. Police are saying no inconsistencies in Oscar's story, and their key witness was four city blocks (over 2,000 feet) away from the house when he allegedly heard a verbal argument in the early morning of Valentine's Day. I just hope the jury can learn the truth from all of the evidence, because I am having a hard time deciding if he did it with intent or not.

^ Good article but keep in mind it's referencing the case laid out by the defense in hopes of getting him out on bail.

Ok, things just officially got weird. Head investigator now charged with attempted murder and admits he contaminated the crime scene.

I don't think this case has been reported very well from the beginning. Too many inconsistencies, and a lot of confusion.

I want to believe that this was a horrible, horrible mistake. But there's kind of a dearth of clear facts at the moment.

To answer an earlier question, no, South Africa does not have the death penalty.

If you noticed his official statement, he never denies killing her. He said he didn't intend to kill her.

Sounds like OJ, another killer may go free.

Anyone who claims to be a gun enthusiast as much as he does knows better than to put four rounds into a door without knowing who's behind it.

I call bullshit.

Dude got out on bail. I'm surprised. But they took his legs, so he's not a flight risk.

If it is true that he shot her while she hid inside the bathroom...I will have a hard time believing this was an accidental shooting from mistaken identity. Due to the botched up crime scene we may never know the truth .

Is anyone keeping up with this? The trial has been going on for about 9 days.

Check out this cool interactive graphic that explains both sides arguments.
http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/28/world/...l-interactive/

I just read up on the trial updates for the first time today. He's like their national hero over there so they actually have a channel dedicated to 24 hour coverage of it. To me just gut instinct it doesn't look too good for Pistorius. They have had witnesses come forward and attest to him being trigger happy. He once shot a gun out of the sunroof of a car going 100+ mph after an altercation with a police officer. He had an ex girlfriend testify that he was angry and would often yell. But they love him over there so who knows. A couple days ago when they were sharing gruesome crime scene details he completely lost it broke down crying and puking in the courtroom. He vomited again today when they accidentally flashed up pictures of her corpse meant to be shared later.

I also learned that South Africa does not have juries. His fate lies up to one judge.
