Badmonkey82009: GAT_00: scottydoesntknow: Pistorius' case took a dramatic turn Thursday as police announced that lead investigator Hilton Botha has been replaced. Botha, who testified earlier in the week, faces attempted murder charges from a 2011 case. The charges stem from an incident in which Botha and two other police officers allegedly shot at a minibus they were trying to stop.Ohh christ, this is going to get messy./+1 subby!Once that came out, it was pretty much guaranteed in my book that this whole thing was done. Dragging up a murder charge from two years ago suddenly once the detective broke on the stand? This is pretty heavy handed, but obvious.Agreed... At first I didn't think Pistorius' defense had a leg to stand on, but now I could see them making a real run at getting him off. I am stumped how the police could make such a basic oversight.
cman: farking GOLDHeadlines this year have been weird. Either they are the greatest headlines in Fark history or they straight up suck. There is no inbetween
treesloth: It should be even more illegal to kill hot chicks.
keylock71: I freely admit I haven't been following this story closely as I don't really care one way or the other, but...Doesn't it seem odd that a person would just fire off multiple rounds through a bathroom door without you know, checking to see if it was just his girlfriend taking a late night dump? Especially if one lives in a gated community?Did his girlfriend not sleep in the same bed as him?Again, I may be missing something vital to the story here, but his version of events seems a bit suspect to me. *shrug*
Popcorn Johnny: His statement in court said that he wasn't wearing his prosthetics when he went to check on the noise he heard. The bullet holes in the door where at a height of 5 feet. Not that his story made any sense in the first place, but this seals the deal.
walrusonion: I bet he runs to south america.
brigid_fitch: The magistrate pointed that out during his 90-minute bail soliloquy, too. Pistorius hears someone in the bathroom, grabs his gun, goes to the bathroom door, and fires. Doesn't put on his prosthetics, doesn't check to see if his girlfriend is in bed next to him, doesn't call out to see if it's her in the bathroom--just fires. I don't care how groggy you are in the middle of the night, your first instincts aren't to fire blindly at a locked bathroom door.
cookiefleck: I'm pretty sure subby lifted this headline from a joke made in a previous thread about pistorious
Birnone: The thing is a lot of activities people engage in seem 'odd' to me. Shooting a woman because you thought she was a deer(she was wearing a brown jacket and white mittens) seems very unlikely, but someone did it. I mean, it's either a deer or it isn't right?Leaving your kid for hours in a boiling hot car? You're the one who put the kid in that car! Those 'accidents' happen just about every summer though.Personally, I think this guy is guilty of being up to no good, but at this point I see no evidence of a murder. Negligent homicide? Yup, but murder? Nope. It's still early in the case though, that could change.
oldfarthenry: Is it wrong to expect a slow legless chase through the streets similar to OJ's?
IAmRight: BTW, re: the defense claiming "well, crime is really high, so this is a totally logical sequence of events."Um yeah, if this story passes muster, I think I can see why crime is so high. You don't even have to make up a plausible alibi!"Yeah I shot my neighbor but I thought he was going to attack me!""You shot a 9-year-old kid 18 times.""DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE CRIME RATES ARE HERE? I HEARD SOMEONE RING THE DOORBELL AND HAD TO PROTECT MYSELF!"
Vodka Zombie: Oh, and to answer the question, you put the monitor in the only place you CAN put it:
Hyperbolic Hyperbole: i spend an awful lot of time on a news site to still have no idea what this story is about at all.
TheOther: '...not a flight risk.'That's just cold.
Langdon Alger: put the monitor around his neck so everyone can see it all the time. and make it extra tight so he'll think about what he's done everytime he eats or takes a drink that she will never have again.
Captain Steroid: "Headline of the Year", and it's only February! :-)
farm machine: It would appear that the court is stumped as to where to put the monitoring device. How about around his balls (can I say that?), they're apparently the size of car tires based on his account of the events. And who the heck locks the bathroom door in their own home when they use it?
