    Wow, can you imagine being stopped in the US for speeding and telling officer not to touch your gun sitting on the car seat. It really is the Wild West in South Africa.

    Pretoria - Paralympian Oscar Pistorius told a metro police officer not to touch his firearm, the North Gauteng High Court heard on Tuesday.

    Witness Darren Fresco told the court how he, Pistorius, and the athlete's then girlfriend Samantha Taylor were pulled over for speeding in September 2010. They were driving from the Vaal to Johannesburg at the time.

    Fresco, who had been driving, was speaking to a metro police officer when Pistorius got out to find out what was taking so long.

    A second metro police officer picked his gun up off the front passenger seat, where Pistorius had left it. Pistorius had a "verbal altercation" with the officer, Fresco said to questions from prosecutorGerrie Nel.

    "The accused replied 'you can't just touch another man's gun'," Fresco said.

    "He was furious that someone else had touched his gun."

    After he was sworn in, Judge Thokozile Masipatold Fresco that if he answered questions truthfully and honestly, he would be discharged from prosecution.

    He faces possible charges related to arms and ammunition control legislation.

    Pistorius is accused of the murder of model and law graduate Steenkamp on 14 February last year. She was shot in the arm, hip and head.

    He is also charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and two counts of discharging a firearm in public.

    He allegedly fired a shot from a Glock pistol under a table at a Johannesburg restaurant in January 2013.

    In September 2010, he allegedly shot through the open sunroof of a car with his 9mm pistol while driving with friends in Modderfontein.

    That's what should happen - but I have little confidence it will. I know a woman who moved to S. Africa, and that place is immensely fucked up. Pistorius being wealthy and famous has a slim chance of seeing real justice served.

    Wonder how they handle cripples in prison? Obviously he can't have his leg things... and without, the other prisoners will have a field day with him.
