    A botched trial. It should have been murder from the start. I hope returning to court will land him more years in jail.

    Only God knows what was going on in the mind of the trial judge when she was writing her judgment. Her conclusions and verdict were in direct contradiction of the facts and legal principles well placed and canvassed before the court by the very brilliant and dogged Mr. Nel the prosecutor. Even the contradictions and inconsistencies in Oscar’s account were clear for any lay man to see that he was guilty of murder ab initio.

    Lmao @romancing the case!

    A human being slept beside you. You heard some noise, rather than look for your partner and protect her first, you just started shooting. All dis controlling and abusive men. Tueh!

    mmhhh…….only God, Reever and Pistorius know the trueth if he shoot her intertionally or not. but the fact is he admit he killed her…… he must take responsible of his actions as the law of this earth demand. may prayer for him is to Find and accept Jesus as his personal savior and God to grant him grace to live again after his punshment.

    Ashh! this world, i know he never dream or wish his life to turn up this way…..but on earth we pass through a lot, the only place we will see no more pain or tribulations is heaven. may the good Lord have mercy on this world. AMEN
