And the Best Actor is . . .

Oscar was never better named.

He did it, no question, even if he did get a ‘Not proven’ verdict on the murder charge. He turned into a Quentin Tarantino character and started blazing away at a door knowing there was someone behind it. All through the trial I waited for the prosecution to hammer away at the key questions:

‘When you heard the noise, why did it not occur to you to  check whether your girlfriend was still in bed beside you?’

‘When you heard the noise, why did it not occur to you to ask Reeva if she’d heard it too?’

‘When you got out your gun, why did it not occur to your to turn and say to Reeva, “Stay here while I investigate.”?’

Of all of it, that’s the part I don’t understand, and that’s where reasonable doubt must kick in.

In all the circumstances, five years for shooting and killing your girlfriend, most of it to be served under ‘house arrest’, seems like the deal of the day.

    Def the deal of the day…….house arrest with all it’s comforts…….but first a bit of jail time….wonder how the inmates will react, or will he be kept in solitary so as not to startan uprising?

    Cotton wool treatment. They won’t want to feed his post-prison memoirs.

    Five years is not enough and I hear that he’ll be able to get out in 10 months. Where’s the justice? Most of us don’t have guns of any kind but I do understand that in certain places it may be permissable to posess one. However, it is essential to know how to use the firearm in question, why you’re using it and to use it effectively. Seems to me that, if you want to scare an intruder (if you think it is an intruder), you shoot at the bottom or top of the door, not at body-height right in the middle and then wait for a reaction from inside. Easier said than done, I’m not an expert, special forces are. nuff said.

    I must agree 100%. Those were the questions I was waiting for. DID YOU NOT NOTICE REEVA WAS NOT THERE? If QJ wrote fiction like this it would be so unbelievable that it would never sell! I wonder what Big Bob would make of this?
