Oscar Pistorius charged with premeditated murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Didn't see a thread, so I thought I'd start one to follow everything. The hearing has been postponed until next Tuesday.

Reeva Steenkamp (model & reality TV star) was shot 4 times and died due to injuries.

I've heard that Pistorius defense is "he thought she was a burglar." That is not confirmed though. Police have said if that is the defense, it's the first they've heard because they have numerous people in the stating they heard the couple fighting all night.

Steenkamp was killed on February 14th and her last tweet was about Valentine's Day.

Here is a photo of Steenkamp and Pistorius.

Saw it posted in there but figured it was big enough news to warrant it's own thread since I'm sure the case will be well documented.

Just razing you. It is a terrible situation, a beautiful young woman who lectured on the abuses women in South Africa, in particular, suffer on a daily basis, is dead. A star that was was loved by everyone in South Africa it seems, is now going to spend a long time in jail if it found that he indeed killed her. Sad situation.

Very.. I remember being so pumped when South Africa were given a spot in the finals and I cheered him on when he ran. It seems like Reeva was a very good person and it's just a disappointing situation.

Looks like the prosecution is going for premeditated murder.

What a sad sad story. Thoughts are with this woman's family right now and I hope Pistorius is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Will be interesting to see how this story plays out. I imagine that he was (is?) a sports hero in South Africa. Wonder if he will get any sort of star treatment? Celebrities always seem to get away with things, or get a much lighter punishment.


My brother-in-law said it best:

I thought he was a nice guy because he had no legs. Stupid stereotypes.

Innocent until proven guilty, no?

He definitely did a lot of positive things in the world at only 26. He was a role model for disabled people and he constantly was doing things to help out that community. That's why it's such a shock to me anyway.

One of his ex-girlfriends came out and said she needs to hear his side because they dated for 5-years and he never so much as raised a finger.

This sucks no matter what though.

Oscar's uncle, Arnold, stated today that there is forensic evidence that proves that it wasn't murder.

From what I read, she was shot four times through a door.

Also, the reality TV show Reeva pre-recorded, was shown last night in Africa. A lot of people are pissed off because she was rolling around in the sand in a bikini.

He wanted his lawyers to try to get the sentence reduced. They told him he didn't have a leg to stand on.

When hes sentenced and goes to jail, will his legs be taken away from him? Considering they could probably be used as a weapon.

Considering he's technically disabled, I wonder what kind of prison he'd even go to to begin with.
