“I fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premeditated murder, as I did not intend to kill my girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.”

We missed this in our earlier post since the statement was released in court earlier today. A sobbing Oscar Pistorius came into a packed courtroom on Tuesday to once again vehemently deny he murdered his beloved girlfriend, saying he was “desperately trying to protect Reeva” from what he thought was an intruder inside his home. Wait a minute, wasn’t Reeva supposed to be the intruder?! The dude is claiming the entire time he thought Reeva was sound asleep next to him and when he heard noises in the bathroom (assuming it’s the master bathroom inside the room where they sleep), he simply went into self-defense mode by grabbing his 9mm under his bed & blindly shooting at the bathroom door.

The statement specifically reads, “As I did not have my prosthetic legs on, I felt vulnerable for myself and Reeva.” His version of the story claims that at some point during the night he got up from bed to close a sliding balcony door when he heard noises in the bathroom. At that point, he went into a terrified trance recalling the death threats against him and quickly grabbed his gun, the entire time thinking Reeva was still in bed. To drive home the mistaken identity point even further, he claims to have screamed for Reeva to call the police.

Here’s the kicker: seconds after shooting into the bathroom, he realized that Reeva was not in bed & could’ve been inside the locked bathroom! It was only at that point that he put on his prosthetic legs, used a cricket bat to break open the door only to find poor Reeva slumped over the toilet, barely alive. We’re pretty sure he spent the next few minutes panicking at the fact that he just killed his girlfriend, but Oscar claims he instantly called for an ambulance and proceeded to take Reeva’s body downstairs, when she ultimately died in his arms.

The prosecution rebuttal was simple: A) Why would a burglar lock himself inside a bathroom? & B) Why would Reeva lock herself inside the bathroom if she was just taking a late night wizz? It’s possible Reeva was having some explosive diarrhea that night & didn’t want to wake Oscar, but even that’s a stretch. Oscar definitely didn’t think things through before releasing the statement…

Oscar ended with, “I believe forensic evidence will prove what I’m saying.”

Here is a floorplan of his place. Apparently to get from the balcony to the bathroom, he has to go back through the master bedroom where he presumably puts on his legs (which he somehow doesn't notice her in bed, but is able to get his legs and gun), goes through some type of walk through closet to get to the bathroom, where there is a locked room for the water closet. Yeah, ok.  http://media.2oceansvibe.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/balcony-floorplan.jpg

I think the prosecution are going to determine that this guy doesn't have a leg to stand on!

I'm an astrologer so I don't need any info from this guy other than his b day to know who he is. He is intensely unstable, jealous, and easily angered. He has done a good job hiding his dark side from the public eye in the past, but unfortunately he was destined to be a murderer. He has Venus in Scorpio Retrograde conjunct Pluto squaring his Moon in Leo. This shows the intense pain he experienced when his mother died and it shaped his personality very precisely. It affected him deeply and was very karmic. His Sun is also square Mars meaning he has anger problems caused by his father and would lash out on anyone at anytime. Venus in scorpio retrograde conjunct pluto is the darkest side of love any human being can possibly experience. This is how he was able to kill her.. I cannot imagine the horror she went through. I experienced transit venus in scorpio retrograde conjunct my natal pluto in scorpio in 2010.. and let me tell you. I did want to kill my bf at the time because he hurt me so much. I even told him that I thought he was going to die.. That was the most disgusting energies and emotions ive ever gone through.. haven't we all been there? Not like I would have shot him to death. I cannot imagine living a lifetime with those energies.

I'm convinced that Johnny Cochran could've squeaked out a victory for this dude...

His excuse would make sense if it was an episode of Fringe.
