It must be nice to live in a country where serious criminal charges can be levied against someone for the right price.

How does one mediate a murder? What is involved in premediation?
 
2013-02-21 10:32:11 AM
wow, they just took out the prosecution at the knees
 
2013-02-21 10:32:59 AM
Wasn't he the one that admitted the scene was consistent with Pistorius' version of events?

Worst high profile prosecution ive ever seen. How did they let this guy have this case?

The penalty is much more severe than aggregated assault.

What I'm really thinking is why anyone not physically in a combat zone doing house-to-house is putting bullets through a closed door? This guy play "Call of Duty" too many times? Get a bad batch of 'roids?

WTF Indeed: It must be nice to live in a country where serious criminal charges can be levied against someone for the right price a police officer, ever.

I don't think he's gonna walk because he did shoot someone to death who was objectively not a threat.  He might get the manslaughter equivalent instead of the murder one equivalent though.

You're missing an important "t"

South Africa is a Third World Shiathole....so no surprise that a prosecutor would be charged with murder

If Pistorius is not released....then you know the fix is in. SA is a Thugocracy.....whose own national hero had a wife involved in her own murder scheme. Of course, Winnie Mandela got a pass because of her race

Well, the good news is that at least there isn't a jury of easily-duped buffoons to hear the case.  Of course, the judge could also be bought and paid for, so who knows.

That joke went so far over your head it left a contrail. Hint: go find a picture of the accused and take a look at the shinnal and footal regions.

I think his own ridiculous testimony should get him murder one just for how obviously ridiculous it is. They should just say "y'know, the prosecution really f*cked this up and if you had done anything but go with the story of how you thought it was a burglar so you reached across the part of the bed where she normally would be, didn't notice that she wasn't there, grabbed the gun, didn't grab your legs, fired from a height that indicates you did have your legs on...we might have been willing to believe you. But your story is so patently ridiculous that it's pretty goddamn insulting to us that you expect us to believe it. So f*ck you, murder one."

In fairness, he can walk with his prosthetic legs, so it's not quite as obvious as it might be if, say, he were wheelchair-bound.

He's a tea partier, or at least the South African equivalent. He misses the days when whites could just murder blacks for sport

Probably good advice.  Homicide rate in South Africa is 31.8.  Current US homicide rate is 4.8.  You're nearly 7 times more likely to be murdered in South Africa than in the US.

Well isnt that his right?  Since when is it the job of any federal government to enforce PC behavior to the extent of even regulating the kind of sport an individual chooses to partake in.  Thank god we have a constitution that defends us from this kind of liberal strongarming.

Not on dear ol' Fark. If something is funny one time, it's funnier a bajillion times. (I see your point, though)

OTOH, when I hear 'Pistorious' I picture this scene:

It's not exactly what she said, but it's kind of close.

Yeah.   Now the blacks murder whites for sport instead.

On a less snarky note, the homicide rate in SA is over 6 times higher than in the supposedly "gun crazy" US.  If I were a high profile person living in SA, I'd be armed to the friggin' teeth, regardless of my ideology.

Low hanging fruit and all of that. In my defense, this is my Boobiesorious thread.

In all seriousness though, in my mind this case is shaping up to be a "celebrity athlete murders someone and gets away with it because of the inevitable media clusterfark surrounding it."

These sorts of things tend to be self-fufiling prophecies. Media gets ahold of case, sensationalized it. Case becomes more opaque and facts become less clear. Media sensationalizes case more based on new controversies and competing media reports. Rinse and repeat n times until any hope of an unbiased jury are pipe dreams.

Added to the fact that he's a national hero and a white one in South Africa at that, the prosecution's irregularities....

I'd be surprised if he gets more than equivalent of manslaughter. The only way he doesn't is if the jury buys the "roid rage" explanation, or if he had a history of domestic abuse (did he?)

He's already been released and they're having a parade for him.  South Africa does things differently.
