I'm thinking cover-up. He shoots crazy girlfriend after she gets all slappy scratchy, then makes up the home invasion.

I'm a hunter, not a home defender. But I'm thinking if I ever raise my Mossberg at an invader, I can't picture pulling the trigger before at least a touch of dialog with the invader.

What is the possible scenario? Blood thirsty murder decides to rampage on this guy's house? Blam Blam Blam Blam? Phew. That was close! They're coming for my TV! Blam Blam Blam Blam. Phew. That was close!

Nope. This will be a murder trial.

Haha, and I had to listen to NBC talking heads blather on and on about how much of an inspiration this guy was because he got to run in the Olympics with his robot legs.

No, he DID shoot and kill her, he allegedy mistook her for an intruder.
 
2013-02-14 04:03:52 AM
I don't think his defense has any legs to stand on. He is definitely making big strides in the world of Fark gun threads. He better be quick on his feet and find a good lawyer. I guess he was light on his toes when it comes to home defense. Maybe he shot her because her name was Irene or Peggy, and was sick of the irony?

deffuse: Medic Zero: HotWingAgenda: The first trigger pull might have been accidental.  I don't buy that the next three were.  Unless she put on her ski mask and carried a Kalashnikov to get a midnight snack.

I train to double taps. I could see getting off four shots before I realized the mistake. Ever watch a speed shooter shoot? A good shooter can empty a magazine lickety-split.

A woman should never ever try to sneak up on a man when he thinks he's alone. She might catch him whacking it to tranny porn, then he'll have to spend hours trying to explain to her that trannies are more woman than man, really. The face is really feminine. And besides, he doesn't watch it much at all. This was like his first time seeing it. He didn't even really know this kind of stuff existed. Yeah, he agrees, it's kind of weird, and he'll never look at this kind of stuff again. He promises.

This happened in South Africa, where the usual standard for burglary in an occupied home is to tie the people up, panel-beat them for a while, terrorize them for a while further  to get any ad all valuables  and then proceed to rape all the females, shoot anyone who disagrees, and then beat toddlers over the head just for fun.

South africa is a farked up place to say the least. What happened here is a real tragedy and i feel for the family who lost a member, but burglary leads to vicious and violent murder in that country and  being in fear is entirely understandable. Mind you, switching on a light beforehand to actually SEE who it was would be a smart move before shooting, but who thinks clearly when they're scared out of their mind?

oldtaku: Eh, it's South Africa, total shiathole of violence and crime. Think Detroit but with better weather and much more annoying accents. They shoot people just for jaywalking.


I honeymoon in South Africa and my wife's brothers go there regularly with their children. It IS possible to have a safe and fantastic visit.

Of course I wouldn't take my children there, and everyone we know who lives there has been burgled or attacked, but it isn't THAT bad.

Odd that the first source I got when I googled Reeva Steenkamp identified her as Pistorius's "ex-"girlfriend.

Is there more to this story than we're getting here?

It REALLY is possible to have a good vacation there, provided you go to the right places (which are getting fewer and fewer by the day) The wine route, for one. And for fark sakes, stay out of any and all informal settlements.

Let me just be clear about this. Whatever else i say in this thread, i also believe he should stand trial for this act and should serve whatever punishment is deemed reasonable. Someone who wasn't a threat to him/his family is dead because of this.

Also, after that first muzzle flash, you can't see shiat. Plus if you're certain enough to put that first round in to the unknown person, you're going to keep shooting - why wouldn't you?  What downside is there to pumping too many rounds in to a (perceived) threat?

I'm a touch sceptical of the claim that he mistook her for an intruder. The guy lives in a gated golf estate with security guards where you need to pre-clear visitors if you don't want them to have to go through paperwork. Even then they need to give the unique pin that you send to them to the guard to get through the gate.

If he lived in Hillbrow I could quite see where he'd come out guns blazing, but you'd think he'd turn the light on at least and make sure, given his secure location.

Yeah, gated communites don't mean much actually.  Most of the violent crime committed in them is because the guards themselves either facilitate the burglars' entry into the complex, or are the burglars themselves.  Happened to a family friend in a Fourways security estate.

Or the burglars don't come in through the front gate, maybe?

Here is what I was taught, and I think it makes sense: If you hear someone you suspect is a home-invader, call out to that person "Go away, I have a gun." If it's your girlfriend, family member, or some other innocent person, they can identify themselves and a tragedy like this could be avoided. If it's really a home invader, the warning might run them off. If not, well...you can decide what to do with that .357 in your hand. But at least they had fair warning.

Doesn't matter who he thought he was shooting.  He killed an innocent person.  You pulled the trigger, you own the consequences.

It looks like he actually lived in Silver Woods next door (different article issued a correction), but the security is pretty much the same so your point still holds.  Looks like they have electric fences surrounding the estate.

Correct.

WHO'S THERE? IDENTIFY YOURSELF! LEAVE NOW! I'M ARMED AND I WILL KILL YOU!

Don't go looking for them in the house. Lock yourself in the bedroom. Hide under the bed and dial 911. Have your gun ready if they kick in the door.
