I don't think there is any question of him being innocent of anything. But what he will try and argue is that it was a mistake and not pre-meditated. Either way, it's still murder.

We were discussing this at work yesterday and most of us agreed that, in all likelihood, he'll get off on some technicality like evidence that's ruled invalid or something to do with the corrupt prosecutor.

No, by definition, it isn't murder if it's not pre-meditated. It's true to say that either way, he still killed someone.

Are you trying to say that you got away with murder once and now you can see through the bullshit that other murderers say?

Apparently Oscar Pistorious wanted a new bathroom door but his Missus was dead against it!

Police have discovered a book containing names of 50 other women Oscar Pistorius was planning to kill. It was called 'Shinless List'

Really so what about this whole thing. It's not as if amputees the world over are going to start murdering their cheating girlfriends then make up a poor excuse because their mind couldn't handle uttering the truth. And it's South Efrica. So effing what. Never going to affect us. Bleh. But he never seemed a bad bloke to me. Making himself really unpopular by complaining officially about other athletes was a brave move. Noble sportsman.

I can't stand the guy but I'd rather have his tweets on my feed rather than Barton who has already clearly seen all the available evidence to the courtroom and come to an educated verdict based on the facts, and is therefore entitled to be judge and jury on the matter...

Seems like Guilty of premeditated murder is off the table.

The judge could also find him guilty of culpable homicide, for which he would face a long jail term
He also faces two charges for firing a gun in public and one for illegally possessing ammunition

I think culpable homicide would be a fair verdict, in S. Africa the punishment for that can vary from a fine to heavy jail time. Somwhere in between will be the outcome, I imagine.

I heard on the radio this morning that there are pretty much no legal experts in SA who think the judge has got this right, and there could well be an appeal. Common sense says that firing so many shots at a bathroom door cannot be said to have no intention of killing someone, so people are baffled by the judge's comments in this regard.

Frankly, I think that Pistorius has been lying his arse off throughout. He clearly has a temper problem, and I reckon something happened between him and Reeva that evening which made him so angry that he shot his girlfriend while she was hiding in the bathroom.
