i'm not sure what i believe on this one... seems to me that he's mostly got away with it ... bet her parents don't think that's nearly enough.

www.bbc.co.uk...




South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been jailed for five years for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Judge Thokozile Masipa, issuing the ruling in court in Pretoria, also gave Pistorius a three-year suspended sentence for a firearms charge. Pistorius has been taken to the cells. The prosecution had called for a minimum 10-year sentence; the defence for community service and house arrest. Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide but cleared of murder.

I followed this fairly closely from the beginning, and I definitely think he should have gotten the 10 years the prosecution asked for.

It is very clear from this guy's history that he was abusive to the victim as well as to other women, was into power and control over others, and enjoyed gun play.

How is he different from Phil Spector?

8 - 10 months in prison, the rest of it as house arrest... if i were the family i'd be most unhappy with this.

He's off already..


Anyway, If the prosecution wanted 10 years they should have asked for the maximum of 15. Yeah, he got off very lightly IMO.

His Story was BS from day one. Out of all the witnesses who heard the argument and the gun shots he was the only one who didn't alert their partner to goings on. He said he whispered to her that someone was in the house. BS.

OMG, that cartoon is precious. Oh Oscar!

If I was her family, I would be thinking, "the sooner he gets out, the sooner he's dead. "

you'd think someone like him would appreciate and respect life, given how he would barely have one himself without the artificial legs.
all that is his life, depends on people wanting him to live it to the fullest, he could just as easily been another gut on a wheelchair otherwise.

I think I am most disappointed in the female judge. I don't get how she seemed to side with him.

On the news the reporter said he could be out in as little as 1 year and be given home arrest. What a joke.

Not enough. He got away with murder.

I believe that for the rest of his life Oscar will be in the prison of his memories; in his mind, his soul, heart, spirit emotions; for the rest of his life he will suffer much with torment over what he did.

He may become a better person; he many try to do good to in some way make up for what he did...but he will always be in the prison of his memories over what he did; he will never escape from that.

Oscar Pistorius is getting a light sentence for the same reason Justin Bieber gets light sentences, which is also the same reason Michael Vick got a sweetheart deal (both financial and criminal).

So what is that reason?

There are some wealthy "owners of capital" that have invested a large sum into marketing these people, as TV or sports personalities. For example if the Giudice's (Housewives of New Jersey) served a real prison sentence some "really really rich" people would be out of their "investment". So, even though the Giudice's seem rich by our standards, you have to remember the people who write their paychecks are far, far wealthier. That's why celebrities like Bieber get off scott-free, the judges wouldn't want the wealthy people (whom help get them their appointments/elections) to lose money, so they keep the cash cows, whom these really rich people OWN, out of jail. They can't simultaneously be in jail and making easy money for the "owners of capital". Thats why regular people go to jail quicker and for far less severe crimes because no wealthy "owners of capital" have invested anything into them, so its easy to throw regular people away like trash.

Another example is Hope Solo, whom was accused of domestic violence, she WILLplay in the games, she will likely also not get much of a criminal punishment as well.

The only way this is going to change is if the population starts giving "mob justice" AFTER these people have been found not guilty or given lesser sentences. The courts are not going to do it,PERIOD, so its on the community to instill justice AFTER these guys think they got away with their crimes.

If it was my daughter that he had sawed in half, through a bathroom door, I'd be counting the days till his ill-deserved early release....

Then I'd kill him.

Until the day we mere mortals begin paving the streets with the corpses of these elite bastards we will continue to suffer the consequences of a lop-sided justice system.

The only thing hes sorry for is the fact he got caught,the defense did a good job portraying him as the poor little man when in fact his past girlfriend says hes a sociopath was violent and that she was scared of him.

Yeah - legs his legs had very little to do with the tragedy. Apparently the whole incident happened because Oscar wanted to buy a new bathroom door, but Reeva was dead against it.
