You can't say things like that or you'll get GR's resident keyboard warrior getting all righteous on your ass.....


Are you talking about me? If so, you are wrong, there is no warrior here, I just found it amusing how eighthours had had different reactions to different trial results (as we all do).


Have I ever called you that??? :lol:

No, I was on about the local gobshite Dblock.


I was the one posting so I wasn't sure who you were on about. Does Dblock have an opinion on this case? I would imagine he thinks it was all just a conspiracy by the Illuminati to ensure that the USA can gain control of the Paralympic oil reserves. ;)

I think it's a case of she couldn't say without reasonable doubt that he murdered her.


Yeah, while it is incredibly unlikely that he had no idea who was in the bathroom, but I guess there is a tiny chance that he genuinely thought it was a burglar. It's much easier for us to be judges on here than actually being a judge in court.

I thought pre-meditation was a prerequisite of murder?

Earlier, Judge Masipa cleared the world-renowned athlete of both premeditated and murder without premeditation.

I guess there is a difference between planning something for days/weeks/months and murdering somebody in a fit of rage.

Ah, ok, cheers. There are obviously discrepancies between their laws and ours, too.

I guess, in South Africa, the legal system needs more types/categories of murder. A bit like Inuits and "words for snow".

Why don't you surf your little midget ass over here so I can shove a bottle of my opinion in your mouth?

Why did you mention my name in this thread? You bitter old fart. You smell literally like fart according to your friends I've had chat with.

''Saying it's because I was controlling you and making you sad when actually I just asked you to wear some trousers'' :lol: :lol:

The (white) South African in the room next to me is going nuts, saying he shouldnt be sent to jail because "that's a death sentance".. he's right but he deserves it.

On another note, this court case and South African in general makes me never want to step foot in South Africa. The things the South Africans tell me :dread:

What a strawberry floating disgrace. A man who's trained in how to handle a gun shoots a woman multiple times, killing her, and gets only five years in prison. He can be considered for release in 10 months.

To be fair if they put him in gen pop (they probably wont though) he'll get raped and get AIDs.

For perspective, in South Africa earlier this year a Rhino poacher was jailed for 77 years.

Yes but the rhino wasn't in the poacher's bathroom, it's completely different.
