  1. It is true that this man has committed murder, whether intentional or not. As much as he should be punished for this, does it mean that everything he has achieved or stands for now means nothing? J

      Has he committed murder? I’m not sure that has been determined yet has it?

      1. Firing shots through a door into a small cubicle can only mean he meant to kill someone though.

          I’ll wait until I hear the evidence before I condemn the guy

    2. What good he has not done is not diminished, but traumatic wounds are raw and visible right now and will need time to heal. It is like a massive and messy car crash that needs to be searched through, to salvage what spirit of good everyone can go forward with. Both of these two people were upstanding and well loved people. Unfortunately, mental health issues, especially given the reports steroid abuse, and mistrust enter the equation. My heart and thoughts go out to the families in this difficult time. Such a horrible situation.

    This is such a sad tragic case not only for a very talented Paralympian but the achievements he has made toward stop.

    My heart goes out to Reeva’s family and friends but I do hope he will get a fair trial and not what seems to be happening a media circus playing judge and jury.

    I do feel innocent until proved guilty as in any case so in two minds about whether he should be dropped though I doubt Oscar Pistorius is focused on the campaign at the moment but it doesn’t mean his mind has changed.

  3. This is such a tragic case and I feel that there is much more to it than we are being told. I feel so desperately sorry for Pistorius and the family of Reeva. But, as Jack (above) says, should everything he has achieved and stood for be so readily dismissed. I hope he gets a fair trial.

    1. Personally i’d prefer Oscar Pistorius as opposed to anything from Francois Nel. At least Oscar has substance (guilty or innocent) and has achieved in the face of adversity. All i remember from Francois Nel was his “crowing” and a crying queen, and the guy next to me discussing a perverted notion. since then nothing.

    So they seem to think he is guilty before the trial even begins….they couldve waited until after….messy business though and a tragedy
