Ok lets even assume he was guilty and knew it was her in the bathroom. He could plead manslaughter as it was possible that she provoked him, people can get pushed beyond their limits. Maybe she mocked him for having no legs? Not that he really wanted to kill her but lost his mind in a moment of anger. That looks more like 2nd degree or man slaughter.

it was not like a planned killing i.e Anni Dewani case.

No, there was a report that some in the court room heard OP quietly say 'yes'. Not sure if that's the yes we heard though. I doubt it.
OMG, the 'Yes' from Oscar was from when Nair asked him if he understood the conditions of the bail. It was the only time Oscar spoke throughout the entire session. This is the problem with people having access to half-arsed bits of information.

"I think it is important to remember that someone lost their life," Kim Myers, friend of Reeva, reacting to #Pistorius bail.

Yes she was, and I know she wasn't actually in the court. I did say that I wasn't sure she was right
Well that explains it then. She might be biased like many female journalists covering this case.

This is correct.

Some of us have tried our best to post here what has been reported on numerous sources but I'm not sure it has helped so much

Alex Crawford of Sky tweeted that OP has to refrain from alcohol during proceedings. Does he like a drink?
Yes, it could be said that he likes a drink. Lots of alcohol was allegedly found in his house at the time of the shooting, and he has been involved in drink-related incidents:

In February 2009, he crashed a speedboat on South Africa’s Vaal River, breaking his nose, jaw and several ribs and damaging an eye socket. He required some 180 stitches to his face. Witnesses said he had been drinking, and officers found alcoholic beverages in the wreckage, though they did not do blood tests.

People just believe what they want to believe, as long as it reinforces their pre-conceived conceptions.

What? How can firing 4 shots, at close range, into a small room where you know there's is another human being, possibly be described as an accident?


Or do you believe that Oscar tripped and fell and the gun went off accidentally?

'26-year-old man likes a drink' shocker. This is just more BS.

I need to stop reading in to this sh*t. I'm going to be a quivering wreck after dark
It's like a car crash though isn't it, you know it's horrible but you can't help looking.

It was an accident that he killed her i.e. it wasn't intentional therefore it was accidental.

I understand their relief. I don't understand their insensitivity.

The shooting was intentional, the person hit was the accident.

I don' t think her death has been lost by fms on here. What has been lost is the ability to see beyond 'if it was me, I would......', to understand that not everything is black and white, to understand that only the barest outlines of the evidence have yet been presented, and to realise that there has been some very misleading and speculative reports in the papers and by TV reporters.

I'm gobsmacked! A woman calling a man names is an excuse for shooting her dead?! Good grief, I've heard it all now.
