South Africans are very jumpy about house burglaries, as a large percentage of them are violent and often lethal, in a way not seen in many other parts of the world.

No special treatments! I don't believe he just mistook her for some criminal!

On those prostheses, he'll bounce back from this.
 
2013-02-14 02:40:42 AM
So does he sleep with prosthetic legs on? How long did he take to strap up, load his gun, and not realize it might be his gf
 
2013-02-14 02:40:54 AM
I hope her family has money. Obviously he will be unable to foot the bill for the funeral.
 
2013-02-14 02:42:03 AM
I can't imagine how he'd feel. Would you want to kill yourself after something like that? It's horrifying for the girlfriend, but I can't imagine the state of mind he'd be in. It would be surreal.
 
2013-02-14 02:42:24 AM

Hot. Very hot.

Also, it's somehow ridiculous that a female golfer gets put on display like that, while the thought of a male golfer doing something similar (hell, even posing in a flashy Boss suit) would be completely ridiculous. Beach volleyball players and swimmers I can see, but lingerie shots have, oh, zero to do with golf, other than marketing golf (and erectile dysfunction) products to aging, balding, slumping men.

And also, shiatty deal this story. I hope for everyone's sake it was an accident. But how do you blast someone four times with a handgun by accident? I'm just going to take a shot in the dark here and say there's something more to this...

Don't know.  Never blasted my gorgeous blonde girlfriend in the dar...wait a minute!  Yes, yes I have.  And it was Morgan Fairchild.  That's the ticket.  I blasted her good and left her a gooey mess.

I'll leave that to you all to figure out.  Cause, I got no motive to kill Morgan Fairchild.  None.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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.

ESPECIALLY if a loved one is not right there with you. If you don't know 100% that everyone that should be in the house is in the house for God's sake don't shoot at movement in the dark.

My house has a hallway where I can put myself between all our bedrooms and the rest of the house. You better believe that the first thing I'm going to do in a home burglary situation is to move to a defensive position and scream in a very high pitched voice "Who's There! I have a gun!"
The wife will of course be calling 911. of course knowing her, As soon as she has contact with the police, she'll be grabbing her own piece.
Screw the stuff, I'm not moving away from where my family is. I like to think that I wouldn't shoot at movement, or without identifying who I'm shooting at, but who knows what you'll do when your adrenalin is pumping.

The story that always sticks in my mind is a family friend, who thinks he's Rambo, was going room to room with a shotgun when he heard someone in the house at night. He came around a corner and came within a split second of blowing away his daughter who had come home from college unexpectedly. That was a real "come to Jesus" moment for him.

For real. Even if you know that it's a burglar, you turn the lights on and hold the gun in his face with one hand while dialing the cops with the other. Maybe you've got a little more of a right to be on the defensive if you have no feet and can't move so easily, but even still, you give the criminal a chance to surrender. If he lunges at you, then go ahead and get trigger-happy, but shooting at some random noise in the dark? In no way can that be justified.

An astoundingly hot woman is gone from the world, and an icon of perseverance over disability -an inspiration for millions- is going to wallow in disgrace in prison for the next decade or so. A sad day.

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.

2013-02-14 06:43:59 AM

Smoking GNU: 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?


He had a gun, how could he be scared?

South African police says they're mystified about the burglary story, that's nothing they have speculated towards the press.

They have been there before because domestic disturbances, and now they're likely charging him with murder.
 
2013-02-14 07:05:00 AM

Smoking GNU: 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?


How about actual numbers on number of home invasions vs. home invasions that include rape, murder, etc?

Despite the fantasies of the "experts" here that believe SA to be a lawless wasteland, the police didn't wait all that long to decide this story was bullshiat and officialy charge him with murder.
 
2013-02-14 07:07:00 AM

MisterRonbo: 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?


If this alleged incident is true, Pistorius failed 2/4 basic rules of firearm safety.

1. Guns are always loaded
2. Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you have identified your target and are ready to put holes in it
4. Know your target and what is beyond it.

BigBooper: My house has a hallway where I can put myself between all our bedrooms and the rest of the house. You better believe that the first thing I'm going to do in a home burglary situation is to move to a defensive position and scream in a very high pitched voice "Who's There! I have a gun!"
The wife will of course be calling 911. of course knowing her, As soon as she has contact with the police, she'll be grabbing her own piece.
Screw the stuff, I'm not moving away from where my family is. I like to think that I wouldn't shoot at movement, or without identifying who I'm shooting at, but who knows what you'll do when your adrenalin is pumping.


Food for thought but if there is someone in your house up to no good, and they do manage to scram when you call out that you have a gun, there's a good chance they might find an attorney and claim that you menaced them with a firearm.  Difficulty: the courts where you live.

Every bit of training I've ever had has always suggested that you use your firearm to disable a threat, not to threaten a threat.  This also goes for the common belief that if you rack a shotgun you're going to scare off a burglar.  9/10x it might scare him off.  In the case of burglar who has a piece and knows how to use it, you just told him where you are.

ryarger: Despite the fantasies of the "experts" here that believe SA to be a lawless wasteland, the police didn't wait all that long to decide this story was bullshiat and officialy charge him with murder.


That's quite often the default position of police forces in self-defense cases outside the US, and in some jurisdictions inside the US.

Also, as far as the '"experts" here that believe SA to be a lawless wasteland', perhaps they've seen South Africa's homicide rate:  31.8 per 100,000.  For comparison, the homicide rate in the US is a very low 4.8 per 100,000.

Yeah, based on the homicide rate, I'd call it largely a lawless wasteland.  May not necessarily be true in the "nice areas" or Pretoria, but for most of the country it is.  It's got a homicide rate nearly 7 times higher than the US.

o5iiawah: This also goes for the common belief that if you rack a shotgun you're going to scare off a burglar.  9/10x it might scare him off.  In the case of burglar who has a piece and knows how to use it, you just told him where you are.


Assuming you aren't immediately visible, that's not actually true.  You've told him you are aware of his presence.  He's lost the element of stealth, and the element of surprise, and he's in territory that you likely know very well, well enough that you can walk around blindfolded, and that he doesn't know as well.  From behind which door did the sound come from?  The two on the left of the hall, or the two on the right?

Also, the "knows how to use it" proportion of burglars must be vanishingly small.  They won't get to practice too much:  They'll mostly either be too young to legally own a handgun, or they will be a felon.  That's going to limit their ability to actually practice.  People who aren't allowed to have guns have a hell of a time finding a place to work on their marksmanship skills without risking arrest.  Note that I'm not saying they can't get guns, just they won't be able to practice enough to "know how to use it".

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!

Yeah, obviously there's a higher chance of this kind of thing happening when people have such a strong need for guns to protect themselves against a high level of robbery, brutality, rape and murder - and all in their own homes!
Not saying it's impossible this guy deliberately did it and the police don't have reasons to be suspicious.
But equally it's an indictment of the police; the cops look bad if the rich and whites are routinely preyed on and lot's of 3rd world police solve a problem by locking up the victim.

So, if I'm understanding the basic explanation:

-Stubby lives in a dangerous area, one in which violent home invasions are common
-GF would obviously know that
-Stubby owns several guns, and arms himself whenever he hears a twig break in his back yard
-GF would obviously know that

With all of that knowledge, the GF then decided to sneak into his home cat burglar style to surprise him on Valentine's Day, and instead of having his gun drawn while asking for the person to identify itself, he shot four times.

2013-02-14 10:13:08 AM
This is why you have dogs and/or an alarm system to go with the gun.

While someone coming home late might initially startle the dog or trip the alarm, it won't last.  Once the dog realizes who it is they'll stop with the barking or you'll hear the code entered in the alarm to clear it.  If either of those two things fail to open, you have an intruder and should consider opening fire.

Even some dog like the tibetan spaniel my wife owned when I met her works, even small can do IFF for you.  I prefer larger dogs since they're full service, not only do the malamutes identify intruders, they deal with them.

ha-ha-guy: This is why you have dogs and/or an alarm system to go with the gun.

While someone coming home late might initially startle the dog or trip the alarm, it won't last.  Once the dog realizes who it is they'll stop with the barking or you'll hear the code entered in the alarm to clear it.  If either of those two things fail to open, you have an intruder and should consider opening fire.

Even some dog like the tibetan spaniel my wife owned when I met her works, even small can do IFF for you.  I prefer larger dogs since they're full service, not only do the malamutes identify intruders, they deal with them.


dogs are stupid, high-maintenance and malodorous. I'd prefer a burglar in my home.

illannoyin: Aces and Eights: 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.

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.

Having said that, as somebody who used to live in South Africa, if you think an intruder is in your home you shoot them first and ask questions later because that burglar WILL shoot you first given the chance. It's not like in 1st world countries where more often than not if you make a noise or turn a light on or something it will spook the burglar and he'll just run away, in South Africa a life means nothing to these criminals, they'll shoot you and your children as easily as they'd open a can of coke. It makes me laugh when Americans cry about their crime and need to protect themselves etc, those types of people would be paranoid wrecks if they had to live and work in South Africa.


Correct, 1st world citizens that enjoy a relatively safe and secure society would not enjoy living in some shiat hole in Africa with an embarrassingly high murder rate.

Popcorn Johnny: As bad of a reputation as South Africa has for crime, the USA still has a higher rate of death from guns.


So It's OK that South Africa has a homicide rate nearly 7 times higher than the US, because they aren't done with guns?

Don't you grasp the moral bankruptcy of that argument?
 
2013-02-14 03:00:05 PM

ha-ha-guy: This is why you have dogs and/or an alarm system to go with the gun.

While someone coming home late might initially startle the dog or trip the alarm, it won't last.  Once the dog realizes who it is they'll stop with the barking or you'll hear the code entered in the alarm to clear it.  If either of those two things fail to open, you have an intruder and should consider opening fire.

Even some dog like the tibetan spaniel my wife owned when I met her works, even small can do IFF for you.  I prefer larger dogs since they're full service, not only do the malamutes identify intruders, they deal with them.


Until the intruder is a team of cops on a wrong address drug bust. Then your malamute just gets a couple new holes.

"I'm picturing a guy frantically propelling his wheelchair down the street with his left hand and enduring great difficulty steering and closing one eye while aiming a Mac-10 held at arms-length to the right with one hand and his tongue is hanging out of the bottom left corner of his mouth and he's wearing a beige trenchcoat, and when he pulls the trigger his unwary target suffers a head explosion but the recoil flips his wheelchair and the rest of his 31-round clip empties into the air and shatters people's windows while they are feeding newborn triplets and blows out bolts on fire escapes and hits electrical transformers and shoots out tires and after like ten seconds the entire neighborhood is ducked down covering their ears and every car has been in a fender bender and nobody has power and then after a few seconds of silence there resumes the eternal urban cacophony of people yelling and babies crying and car horns honking and sirens and gunshots"

This happens Stateside all the time too. Can you explain to me why you think this isn't a relevant story to gun-control policies everywhere just because it happened somewhere different from where you currently are?

Well, I suppose we can outlaw guns...and axes and spades and knives and pangas and knobkierries and sticks and stones and fists and ...

...or we can just stay sane and stick with outlawing murder regardless of weapon used.

So then you're cool with people owning weapons-grade plutonium and rocket launchers? Or do you think that maybe, just maybe, the risk-vs.-social utility tradeoff presents a bit of a reason to make it illegal to own those things?

Well, there's nothing wrong with that! However, you may want to read up on the Jodi Arias case before you judge a book by its cover. She is a complete farkin' "Fatal Attraction" psychopath. And she's changed her story 3 x.

However if you need something to masturbate over, her is a NSFW picture for you. However, while you are masturbating you might want to avoid a google image search of her victim Travis' nearly decapitated neck and bullet riddled body, unless you are in to that kind of thing.

hitlersbrain: If some one that looks like her breaks into my house I'm sure as HELL not gonna shoot her (though she may wish I had.. (evil laugh, wringing hands).


Seriously though. Everyone in this thread needs to get over their fever dreams about the Dark Continent for a minute and think this particular story through. It doesn't make any damn sense. To believe the "mistaken identity" angle, you have to believe that:

A) She knew her boyfriend has a gun, and lives in a country where people are very paranoid about break-ins, but
B) she decided to "break in" to his place in the middle of the night,
C) likely disguising her identity so that Oscar wouldn't recognize her immediately-- at the very least, that would require baggy clothes to disguise her figure, and some kind of facemask/hat so he couldn't see her long blonde hair

All for a cute Valentine's Day surprise. She'd have to be the dumbest person ever to do that. And we know she had a law degree, so she had to have some functioning cognitive ability.

Dude's going away for the rest of his life. She could have given the internet more hot photos, but he stole that from us. Fark him.

2013-02-14 09:43:02 PM
It is a weird thing.  Here was a guy that really had the world by the balls. He was internationally famous. He was rich. He is good looking. He had some hard challenges early in life and he overcame them to great success.  If he did murder his girlfriend, what could have gone so catastrophically wrong?  He had overcome so much. He had ridden the emotional roller coaster.  He had experience in dealing with adversity. If there is a guy that should be able to keep his shiat together, this is the guy. I won't convict him. I am not a judge or on the jury. But how could a man that has been through so much, lose his mind and kill a person he supposedly loved.

I have been cheated on and divorced as a result. I never..... EVER..... Thought of killing anyone. I was angry. I hurt. But I got over it.  He may have to get over it in jail.

You are wrong. Here are the stats.

South Africa has a markedly higher total rate of death related to firearms, 18.5/100,000
The USA  has a rate of 10.2/100,000

I know you will try to run and say "citation needed", so here you go:

BigBooper: illannoyin: Aces and Eights: 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.

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.

/Common sense goes a long way to avoiding "accidents" like this

ESPECIALLY if a loved one is not right there with you. If you don't know 100% that everyone that should be in the house is in the house for God's sake don't shoot at movement in the dark.

My house has a hallway where I can put myself between all our bedrooms and the rest of the house. You better believe that the first thing I'm going to do in a home burglary situation is to move to a defensive position and scream in a very high pitched voice "Who's There! I have a gun!"
The wife will of course be calling 911. of course knowing her, As soon as she has contact with the police, she'll be grabbing her own piece.
Screw the stuff, I'm not moving away from where my family is. I like to think that I wouldn't shoot at movement, or without identifying who I'm shooting at, but who knows what you'll do when your adrenalin is pumping.

The story that always sticks in my mind is a family friend, who thinks he's Rambo, was going room to room with a shotgun when he heard someone in the house at night. He came around a corner and came within a split second of blowing away his daughter who had come home from college unexpectedly. That was a real "come to Jesus" moment for him.


This is why I use a shotgun and have been bag rounds you ll get hit coming up the stairs if your stupid enough to get up and keep coming your getting lethal rounds.
