As most of you guys know by now, South African sprint runner Oscar Pistorius is accused of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was found dead with gunshot wounds at his house, after what people thought was a Valentine’s Day surprise gone painfully wrong.

It’s a pity that this had to happen, but I don’t understand why the media is throwing this dude under the bus right off the bat. This incident occurred just yesterday, and there are already reports of this guy being a womanizer, owning a lot of guns, being jealous of his new girlfriend’s rising fame (she was set to appear on a reality TV show in S. Africa), among other things. Then again, this is the classic story that the media loves to eat up b/c it features a guy with a touching story who rose to the top against all odds & now apparently has a dark side involving firearms, numerous girlfriends & a potential murder on his hands.

Hmm, the script sounds eerily familiar to numerous others in the past, most recently Lance Armstrong & Tiger Woods—both of which ended tragically. Let’s just say, it’s not lookin’ good for Oscar. If he was dating a African chick or if his girlfriend was ugly, then maybe I could see people throwing him a bone, but considering all odds are against him, he’s going to have a very difficult, if not impossible, time convincing courts & the media that it was all just one big, terrible mistake.

"If he was dating a African chick or if his girlfriend was ugly"

Kind of an ignorant thing to say. I guess you are implying a black African. She was African. Born in Cape Town, South Africa.

The report I heard (allegedly from neighbours) re the time line,  said 3am 3 shots amid screaming. 3.10am 3 more shots. Presumably two shots went astray and explain why it was reported that she was shot 4 times. So he emptied the gun? Bathroom door story explains why two shots missed.

Now, I don't know about you... but,  I can only think of one reason why you would shoot a further 3 shots, ten minutes after the first three. That would be when you realised that the first three hadn't done the job. Did the poor girl start to stir or come around? That might explain head shot. Then you are talking execution. Chilling. Doesn't bear thinking about.

I just looked at his birth chart, he was absolutely crazy. he was born for intense experiences and he was extremely possessive in a relationship.. I mean sickly possessive. His father was either absent or if he was there he was abusive to him in some awful way. His Synastry with Reeva didn't make this better. They had intense arguments and it seems he killed her out of jealousy and rage. This guy let his anger get the best of him. Sad. Anyway, death is just a graduation to a new level. As soon as her soul left her body she was blissfully happy and at peace. He's the one who will be suffering for the rest of his days on earth.

I'm sure they got into a heated argument, he got physical, she locked herself into the bathroom for shelter, he banged on the door and told her to let him in. After refusing to open the door, this tough guy grabbed his gun and shot his way into the bathroom. Hence, killing her.

Oh, great, we get to hear Nancy Grace talk about this case for the next six months. It's just another case involving an asshole with a gun.

Intruders should get shot, more than 4 times. Too bad this isn't the case here.

Dude should get two life terms, 1 for murder and the other for wasting a nice piece of ass.

Also if you are going to blame the bad guys, probably best not to live in a heavily armed, gated,  cctv'd property to give them a fighting chance of getting in to be blamed.

Biggest challenge of his life. Thrives on challenges, beating this rap counts as greatest challenge (ego-trip?) of his life. First sights of him, head down and lawyer getting into the car, answering queries as to how he was, seemed cold and arrogant to me.. he did actually say he's fine (say what?) this stance, soon adjusted with public shows and reports of emotion, seemed cynical to me - like hurriedly re grouped tactics.

The man is loved in his country, admired, a hero. One assumes the jury will comprise these same admirers. Like O.J. in that he is revered sporting hero. Like O.J. in that he has a lot of cash to assemble a defense dream team. Thirty plus million dollars said O.J. was innocent.

 She was beautiful, intelligent, confident. Probably not prepared to put up with less than she ought, setting the ground rules early in the relationship.. Probably did threaten to leave him. If he couldnt have her...

Pretty sure it's a done deal. BTW, he didn't shoot her 4 times in the head. It was head, chest, pelvis, and hand. However, it should be noted that all 4 were through the bathroom door, which she had locked herself into after they were arguing loud enough that neighbors could hear.

If it looks like a duck....

If it quacks like a duck....

If the duck has a smoking gun in it's hand (so to speak)

Then it's a KILLER DUCK!

When the fuck are we going to learn that the same qualities that it takes to be elite at something are often the same qualities that it takes to be a sociopath. Also, good looks does not equal good heart.

Someone should write a movie about this story. I am sure it would win an Oscar.

Just not adding up---feel like he must have been high  or drunk or something. doesn't seem like a total dumbass who's gonna shoot up somebody for no reason whatsoever.

and if in fact it was premeditated, that's some of the worst planning I've ever heard of....

"I'll be at home, she'll walk in & I'll shoot her 4 times in the head mistaking her for a thief!! Ya, great idea!"

this bastard shot her 4 times in the head it is claiming he confused her with a robber... really? you shot her once and she kept coming at you like a zombie? it is virtually impossible that she didn't go down after the first shot, what he did was execute her, already on the floor, with the other 3 shoots. To make things even more aggravated he wrote on twitter that day before ""What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow??? "... fuck, she was gorgeous... South Africa has some elite material on these dairy farms

yeah I think he may be very insecure and she might have wanted to break up with him or something.

It's a strange story because they were only dating a few months so it's not really like an OJ case at all

Oscar must be completely psycho or the biggest pimp in the world. I want to know what kind of pussy he has on reserve if he thought he could take this one out and still maintain a normal life.

@BigMouth this story keeps changing... if that was the case, I really hope he get raped and beaten day after day until the last days of his miserable life

@GrgeCdnBastard oh that they will, but shows like 60 min. or 20/020 will have something on it next week. nothing like a gawd-awful bloody murder to get the ratings war in full swing.

@johnconnor777 He probably murdered her, but if there's an intruder in my house, I'll put 4 in them quick.  Only a fool would stop at one.

vamp

@johnconnor777 well, if he wrote that I guess the relationship wasn't on the rocks? I wonder why he did it.

@skilligan You've never fired a gun?  I don't know what type of gun he had, but if it's a semiautmatic, it's not hard to get off 4 shots real quick, and that's just what you do to make sure an intruder goes down.  Heck, I can even do it with my revolver.

Not saying he didn't murder her.  I just don't see how 4 shots disproves his story.

@MundoLopez1 but they've only been dating for a couple months...


What happened to just breaking up & finding another hottie?

@vamp 

Of course they are, you're not privy to that outlook, but to be real the situation is much more dire because she was hot. If she was fat and ugly I would care less about it. Killing the pretty is 10x worse than killing the ugly.

@McP @skilligan dude, you don't get 4 head shots on a moving target with a handgun even on Call of duty, much less with a revolver. Unless you count as for shots one in the head, the person fell to the ground, and then you fire the other 3 execution mode... but if that's the case, and ballistics will tell the angle, you can't claim that you though the person was a robber

@McP 3 shots in the head? that is 100% overkill, I believe when u protect the home the goal is not to kill but to protect myself, fine if u disagree

@MoeJackson @MundoLopez1 

yeah...but unfortunatly some people dont' think that way..besides this guy is not complete, maybe that's one reason she was looking somewhere else and he didn't like it..well that's the way I see it anyways...who knows?

@johnconnor777 As I said, it was not clear there were 4 head shots, I never suggested you can get 4 shots to the head.  Any way, see Gabbo's post above for important details.  This was murder (though there were not 4 shots to the head).

McP

@skilligan If he shot her 4 times in the head, then I agree he knew who he was shooting.  Kind of hard to reconcile various media reports.  I read that he claims to have shot her through a bathroom door or something, if that is true, there will be holes in the door.  Which would make it virtually impossible for her to have 4 shots in the head.  I guess we'll find out soon enough.
