ransack.: My mind couldn't handle being a juror on a murder trial unless it was the most totally obvious of cases that should never have even brought to trial, and the defendant took the stand. I'm fairly certain that doubt would nag at me for the rest of my life, regardless of the outcome.


I would agree with that.  Due to my job at the time I watched nearly all of the OJ trial.  I also had access to the unedited feeds of evidence (the stuff too gruesome to show on TV.)  I would bet my life savings that he did it.  I know in my heart he did it, but I would have found him not guilty.  Too many things that weren't right.

henryhill: Mid_mo_mad_man: A murder trail in South Africa gets a thread? This hardly news. I mean who really cares?

1. famous athlete
2. beautiful victim
3. guns

I'd say a lot of people are interested.


Three pages back on the mobile site and only 53 comments including this one. Perhaps you want to amend that "lots of" part.

All this time people saying that Africans have no business having guns, and people trying to turn that into a racial statement...

He has 312k followers on Twitter.  Not a million, but not none, either.

Almost shocked he hasn't used the "I knew it wasn't her in the bathroom because women don't poo"

I can see a guy "on stumps" being highly defensive and shooting first and asking questions later, especially in SA. However, their relationship and his past domestic violence makes me think he's guilty. But I'm not watching any of the trial.

Here is the obvious thing with this case.
He was in a room with his girlfriend.  He knew she was there.  Yet, he explains that, he heard a noise in the bathroom, and his first reaction was to get his gun and fire blind through the door.
He never even checked to see where his girlfriend was?  Isn't it obvious that if she's not laying in the bed, it's a pretty good bet that it's her in the bathroom?  Why would an intruder lock him/herself in the bathroom?!

She was really, really good looking, and if I were pissed off with her, I punish her by having sex with her.

I believe he put his blades on (based on the path of the bullets) according to prosecutors, which is part of the pre-meditated issue.

Interesting that she had locked the bathroom door.

Do many couples do that when having a quick pee in the night?

I would guess many don't even fully close the door.

/ unless partner is coming to beat the crap out of them

The fact that the door was even closed is suspect unless she was dropping a deuce.

we haven't been told yet if there was a floater or whose fingerprint was on top on the flush button.

/this trial is a lot of crap.
