In her judgment, Masipa considered only whether OP knew he was shooting at Reeva, and decided he didn't. She accepted that he knew there was someone behind the door (implicitly understood to be...

The aspect of this trial that troubles me is that Masipa essentially said "OP thought it was a burglar, and under that misapprehension, shot to kill. This is excusable." The unspoken truth is that...

This can't be stated. As Masipa said, we have no idea what was going on in OP's mind. All we know is that the prosecution failed to convince Masipa that there was sufficient proof that OP knew...

This 'house arrest' option - I'm struggling with that. OP has no house. There seems to be an assumption that house arrest would be Chez Arnie. But the court can't expect Arnie and Lois to assume...

I've just realised that there was a character called Fenton, but no instances AFAIK of anyone running after him screaming 'Fenton!" I'm wondering if a joke got cut?

I thoroughly enjoyed this. The 2-D creatures were beautifully realised, and the premise was intriguing. Coleman and Capaldi are excellent together, and I for one will be sad if she leaves.

I'm not suggesting the media attention had much effect on the bench. I do think the case would not feel 'normal' at all to the judge and assessors. I'd bet Roux is a scary prospect for many judges -...

Masipa didn't even go down that path, so her ruling didn't involve this test at all. But it should have.

If she had, I think that it would have been very hard to claim that OP had a justifiable...
