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.

Also, Oscar's going to be going solo to that restaurant tonight for Valentines.

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?

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.

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.

Igor Jakovsky: What would be the US equivalent of this guy be in terms of fame in SA?


Michael Phelps maybe, or some Olympian like that. People liked Pistorious because of his story (having no legs and working really hard to compete in the Olympics etc) but he was always a bit of an arrogant prick who allegedly had had "issues" with previous girlfriends before the one he shot.

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.

Yep.

This sounds like a case of his girlfriend came home at 4am after a night of partying, he confronted her about it, an argument broke out, and instead of sending her on her way, he shot her. It seems that the police didn't even buy his story for a second.

Yes, I do believe that's what happened.

I truly hope this is not the case but I fear it is. He is a very motivational person in the world of adaptive sports and one of the few who has made the leap over to compete in the traditional forums.

He can still be motivational to cripples with murderous intent. I watch a lot of Investigation Discovery and I don't recall ever hearing of a cripple-murderer.

I know one here in Philly. Guys robbed his house so he found who and killed him (after the fact, so no stand or sit your ground defense)


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

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.

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".

spawn73: misanthropologist: 
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...

How do you shoot someone even once by accident?

If something startles you, your first reaction shouldn't be to just randomly shoot it until you know what's going on.


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.

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.
