It's a shame she won't live, but then again who does.

hitlersbrain: If some one that looks like her breaks into my house I'm sure as HELL not gonna shoot her (though she may wish I had.. (evil laugh, wringing hands).

Seriously though. Everyone in this thread needs to get over their fever dreams about the Dark Continent for a minute and think this particular story through. It doesn't make any damn sense. To believe the "mistaken identity" angle, you have to believe that:

A) She knew her boyfriend has a gun, and lives in a country where people are very paranoid about break-ins, but
B) she decided to "break in" to his place in the middle of the night,
C) likely disguising her identity so that Oscar wouldn't recognize her immediately-- at the very least, that would require baggy clothes to disguise her figure, and some kind of facemask/hat so he couldn't see her long blonde hair

All for a cute Valentine's Day surprise. She'd have to be the dumbest person ever to do that. And we know she had a law degree, so she had to have some functioning cognitive ability.

Dude's going away for the rest of his life. She could have given the internet more hot photos, but he stole that from us. Fark him.

He would have only shot her once, but for the false start...

Dead man clinking.  Most awkward perp walk ever.

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.

My sentiments exactly.

Popcorn Johnny: As bad of a reputation as South Africa has for crime, the USA still has a higher rate of death from guns.

You are wrong. Here are the stats.

South Africa has a markedly higher total rate of death related to firearms, 18.5/100,000
The USA  has a rate of 10.2/100,000

I know you will try to run and say "citation needed", so here you go:

BigBooper: illannoyin: 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, can decide what to do with that .357 in your hand. But at least they had fair warning.



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.

/Common sense goes a long way to avoiding "accidents" like this

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.

This is why I use a shotgun and have been bag rounds you ll get hit coming up the stairs if your stupid enough to get up and keep coming your getting lethal rounds.
