I doubt he'll ever set foot in prison.

Pistorius delivered a tearful apology to his girlfriend's family in court.  He spoke in Afrikaaner.  Luckily enough, Fark managed to secure the services of the same hand signer who did such a nice job for President Obama when the president addressed the South African nation at the memorial for the late Nelson Mandela.  This is his translation of Pistorius' statements in court:

"I can't begin to tell you the depth of my sorrow at the loss of your late sister and daughter.  At first, I felt like Nancy Kerrigan felt being knee-capped, confused and hurting.  Then I realized I have no knees to cap and I just settled back into a feeling of confusion and hurt.  There are times since I've been cut off from beloved that I feel half a man, with the best part of me ripped from me.  I've thought through those tragic events and, try though I might, I can't seem to conjure up a logical explanation that will stand on its own and all I can say is this stumps me."

Cold_Sassy: ...Sanctioned or not, he competed on a wildly tilted playi ...

My Mom always said this.

Dude, all that work. All the research to make sure I had my facts straight. And then you cut to commercial on the payoff pitch.

Satanic_Hamster: What kind of idiot just starts shooting through a closed bathroom door without even confirming if there's a burglar in there, much less a family member?

I'm stumped.
