South Africa is like a whole country that is like the worst african american neighborhoods in America Times ten.
The whole Mandela "bloodless coupe" has turned out to be complete bullshit.
Yea, this guy was/is never going down for this anyway even without all of these latest keystone cops blunders
The guy is wealthy, a national hero with a good degree of worldwide fame being charged in a still ass-backwards corrupt third world shithole with a Mickey Mouse legal system.
Celebrity justice....he was never going down for this no matter how much evidence says he did it (if it's so) and even if their investigators and prosecutors didn't screw it up (does anyone think they wouldn't screw up even the tightest case?).
His "story" sounds like complete bullshit, but I can't see very many scenarios where they would ever convict someone like him over there. It wouldn't happen here either in most cases with someone of his comparative status....just another Celebrity Justice/Stand Your Ground defense.
Nelson Mandela is a dumb cunt.
His story is complete bullshit. Unless home invaders wear victoria's secret nighties before they try to steal a tv in your gated community, then i'm not sure how he "mistook" her as a robber.
But like you said, he could just be another OJ.
Understand something. There are no juries in SA. This will be decided by a judge. It actually isn't relevant that the investigating officer was up for charges on a unrelated case. He wasn't suspended by the police department.
Oscar did admit killing his girlfriend in his statement. Even if his story has some element of truth the best he can hope for is reduced charges. He is currently facing 25 years. The lower level charges would be 15 years before he can apply for parole. I don't know SA law but if there are lower levels you would have to figure he would do no less than 7 years. In those shithole South African prisons that is still a lifetime. He doesn't have the support you think. Most women groups want him to get the max. Rape and murder of women is rampant in SA. I will be absolutely shocked if he doesn't go to prison.
A group of lovely people in charge
It looks like Warrant Officer Botha is going to be dropped from the case. He did give testimony this morning. It appears his murder charges stem from firing on a taxicab chasing down a man who killed a woman, dismembered her and flushed her body parts down a drain. I was thinking about all the celebrity murder cases and how in each one accused lucked out. The OJ trial and the botched state's case with Mark Fuhrman. Robert Blake and the ridiculous not guilty verdict. Now Oscar Pistorius with incompetent Warrant Officer who is accused of murder. What are the odds that a detective with a murder charge would be assigned the case. He wasn't wearing foot coverings because they ran out another dumb move. Only Phil Spector didn't get off. With all his money and fame he's going to die in prison. OJ did go to jail on another charge but that was due to stupidity.
so basically, just like our mickey mouse legal system
You do realize the dirty copy is white right? But please don't let the facts get in the way of your bigotry.
Everyone involved in this case is white. This is people of privilege trying to put away a man of privilege.
This. If only Shaka Zulu were still in charge of South Africa, none of this would've happened!
I do agree with MutteringJohn, there's no way the Judge lets Oscar walk on this one. The best he can hope for is some type of reduced sentence (7-15 years).
Howard did have a good line about this: "He's sticking to his story there was a super hot intruder."
Worst system in the world.....except for all the others....
Tweet of the day: Oscar Pistorius wanted a new bathroom door for his house but his girlfriend was dead set against it.
Agreed. Watch just one episode of Locked Up Abroad and you will see that it's true.
Oscar is being held in a police station jail with other prisoners. He is sleeping on a mattress on the floor. There is one toilet and one shower for the whole cell. He is not being given preferential OJ treatment. No protective segregation. He's going to be in there at least until Monday. They said in an article that after the final hour of testimony by the prosecutor on Friday morning the magistrate will take the weekend to decide if Oscar gets bail. Alan Dershowitz attorney for Claus Von Bulow and advisor for OJ defense team thinks Oscar will be found innocent. He did say one thing. I believe it was Alan. Because Oscar gave a statement which is unheard of in murder cases, he said if forensics prove any part of that statement is lie all bets are off. Oscar's statement was concocted by his defense team. It was really stupid to make a sworn statement. Your basically giving ammunition to the state which will help get you convicted.
I've got a good friend from South Africa, if you come from the people that stole the country away from the natives it's a great life there.
How I killed Reeva: The graphic display.
