Oscar Pistorius trial

What people need to remember is this.

 

He fired 4 shots into a small locked room no bigger than a cubicle, it is irrespective whether he thought there was an intruder inside that room or not, because he knew someone was inside, but still fired 4 shots into that room.

 

It is irrelevant in my mind that he tried to save her after the shooting, the simple fact is anybody would or should have known that by firing 4 shots (unprovoked I might add) into such a small space would result in at least one of the bullets hitting whoever was inside that room, by firing 4 shots then that is gross recklessness in the extreme and he showed a total disregard for human life.

 

It makes no difference what his actions were after the event, what is important is his actions immediately prior to and the actual act of discharging his gun.

 

What should be remembered is, he could have escaped easily, the bedroom door from across from the bed, he and Reeva could easily have got out of the house, but Pistorius chose to confront the danger, Pistorius chose to fire shots into a that room, Pistorius chose not to make sure that Reeva was there and was getting out of the house, I would have made sure that my loved one or family were getting out, you could have covered them with your gun from the bedroom, but no Pistorius chose to confront the danger on his stumps knowing that he was vulnerable on his stumps, yet he used that very same vulnerability to try and mitigate his actions in court.  He didn't seem to worry about his vulnerability on that fateful night, did he.

Nailed it !

State prosecutors are appealing the 6 year sentence calling it "shockingly lenient".

 

As others have said still think he lost his temper and shot at her.

 

State believe that too.

Six years is ridiculously lenient.   Looks like his "I am a worthless destroyed cripple" act worked.

Think we all know that's probable, mate.

 

Just can't be proven. :(

Quite right as well.

How can you get 5 years for Manslaughter and only 1 year more for Murder?

 

I think Judge Masipa shouldn't be allowed anywhere near this case again, as that's twice now that she's made a dogs dinner out of the sentencing.

South Africa going to just keep re-running this trial until they get a result their happy with? Seems 'fair'.

 

The constant re-running of the trial is clearly having a likely permanent effect on both the physical and mental health of both Reevas family and Pistorius, given the whole idea of prison etc is both punishment and rehabilitation surely it's time to finally focus on that and allow everyone to get on with both that and there lives.

Who cares about his health, 6 years is nothing for murder. If I was related to Reeva I would be going batshit crazy. Would want him dead.

What's the points of law they're appealing on?.

I know its lenient, but they may end up setting him free if they feck up somewhere.

Denying he's tried to top himself.

 

More a cry for help this sort of thing. Trying to get public sympathy more likely.

 

Selfish knob!

It was only a matter of time before a story like this came out.

 

Let's not forget about a poor murderer in prison. Hope he gets to watch the Olympics and Paralympics

As I understand it trial judge Masipa is still to rule on whether an appeal against her sentence can go ahead.

 

Re point above this lenient sentence is a big deal in South Africa. Right or wring it's seen as not being justice.

Part of me does think it is him trying to say 'I told you I was vulnerable'.

Application for increased sentence for murder denied.

 

By the same judge who ruled him guilty of only manslaughter and sent him down for 5 years.

And the same judge who eventually found him guilty of murder only to increase the sentence from 5 years to 6 years.

 

SA justice system is a fecking joke and that judge should be made to resign.

Amazed that it was the same judge that was allowed to decide whether she had made a mistake or not.

I really expected that it would have been taken out of her hands.

The White Cockade

anything is possible now over there in a country where the President is trying to get the Finance Minister arrested

for doing a good job and trying to prevent corruption (ie stopping the President and his cronies get their hands on millions

of rands of Public money) and police chiefs are sacked if they do a good job and go after the bad guys rather than do

dirty work for the men in charge

Pleased about the sentence increase - won't bring Reeva back but it's a small crumb of comfort for her family

Still not long enough.

 

Does this mean he'll be taken back to real prison and not be living at home watching netflix and eating pizza every day?

 

Been in the hospital wing of prison

That Judge  Masipa should never get another murder trial. At times she actually felt sorry for Pistorius.

 

A joke of a Judge

Reeva Steenkamp's parents are preparing to meet her murderer, the former Paralympics star Oscar Pistorius.

 

It is part of a process that could lead to his eventual release on parole.

 

The South African athlete has been moved to a prison closer to Barry and June Steenkamp to enable the meeting to go ahead.

 

Pistorius has served half his 13 years and five months sentence, handed to him for the 2013 Valentine's Day killing.

 

The Steenkamp family lawyer has previously said the announcement he was being considered for release came as a shock, but that they were willing to participate in what the South African authorities describe as "restorative justice".

 

As part of this, offenders are expected to speak to their victims or their relatives.

 

They must also acknowledge the harm they have caused, the department of correctional services said.

 

He has been moved from a prison in the capital, Pretoria to one in the port city of Gqeberha, previously known as Port Elizabeth, in the Eastern Cape.

 

Pistorius shot his girlfriend Ms Steenkamp dead in 2013, saying he mistook her for a burglar at his Pretoria home.

 

He fired four times through a locked toilet door.

Has he ever admitted knowing she was in toilet? Until he does, they should keep him where he is. He got a lenient sentence in the first place. He is a danger to any other woman who he may start up a relationship with.

I still cannot fathom how his first reaction on hearing a noise in the bathroom is to grab his gun and shoot through the door, without even considering that the woman who sleeps next to him and wasn't there might be the one making the noise?...He's never explained it. He should be locked up until he does. I'm 99.9% sure he knew exactly what he was doing that night. Arrogant sod just thought his celebrity and ability to turn on the crocodile tears would help him blag it...

Everything we know about guys who can't control their temper says he knew who he was shooting at.
