There you go mocking someone's hero while people are trying to peg him with a murder rap.

It was a valid question regarding his case...

Anybody know if there was a foot chase?

My wife said she doubts he'll walk free.


Your wife tells even shittier jokes than you

Yet, I rolled you in the Poster of the Year Tournament.. Don't worry. I have a No. 1 seed for you in the MIT.


LOL I knew that would be a high point of your life, winning a tournament on a wrestling board

You're very proud, aren't you?  What a feat- definitely something to brag about while you frown upon trolling old wrestlers

That's hilarious

No, not really a high point for me, but certainly a low point for you.

Life must be a fucking bore if you're trying to hold that up as anything and you're spending nights telling amputee jokes with the other half

Not a leg to stand on (ON TOPIC)

The story is that this guy shot 4 times through a closed bathroom door.  He is saying he thought it was an intruder and the prosecution asked why in the blue hell he would think an intruder would break into his house and go into the bathroom.  The judge denied him bail, so already no one is really buying this.

So an intruder breaks into his house, and he shoots 4 times, instead of fleeing?

Sounds logical to me

I guess her screams didn't clue him in either.

He claims he didn't have his prosthetic legs on.

Yet he put them on and walked over to the bathroom door and blasted her through it.

Exactly

As far as not having them on, I call bullshit.

he's been granted bail

 


PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA—Oscar Pistorius won bail Friday and his freedom pending his trial in the shooting death of his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.


Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair dissected the prosecution and defence arguments over nearly two hours before he delivered his decision as tensions rose steadily in the packed courtroom.


Nair even went 25 minutes beyond the regular closing time of the courthouse in reviewing every aspect of the case.


“The issue is not guilt but where the interests of justice lie,” Nair said.


He rejected prosecution arguments that Pistorius was a flight risk or that past incidents of anger and violence showed he was a danger to society.


Nair excoriated the investigating officer, Hilton Botha, for mistakes and lapses exposed by cross-examination. Botha has since been removed from the case, after his seven charges of attempted murder were exposed.


But he also criticized Pistorius’s claim of self-defence, saying he had difficulty understanding gaps in logic: why the double-amputee athlete didn’t find out where girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was before he opened fire, and why he went toward the perceived danger of a burglar rather than flee.


Pistorius is charged with one count of premeditated murder in the Feb. 14 killing of Reeva Steenkamp. He says he accidentally shot her, thinking she was a dangerous intruder inside his home, lurking in a toilet stall off his bedroom.


Pistorius’s hands trembled as he said “good morning, your worship” as the session began in Magistrate’s Court in Pretoria, South Africa’s capital. For the first time in the hearing, two representatives of the Steenkamp family were present in court, sitting behind and to the left of Pistorius in the public gallery.


Prosecutor Gerrie Nel called Pistorius’s version that he shot Steenkamp accidentally improbable and argued that Pistorius did not have to have planned the killing for days in advance for it to be premeditated.


“He planned it that night when she (Steenkamp) locked herself in (the toilet),” Nel said in response to a question from the magistrate on why Pistorius hadn’t staged a break-in at his home to make his story look more believable. “The fact that we have only one survivor of that tragic night is difficult for the state.”


Pistorius’s defence lawyer, Barry Roux, brought up culpable homicide as a possible charge for the first time in the case when answering questions from the magistrate.


“He did not want to kill Reeva. He had no intent to kill Reeva,” Roux said as Pistorius began weeping again — like he has done for much of his bail hearing.


Roux said it was impossible for Pistorius, as famous as he is and with his prostheses, to escape South Africa before trial and bail should be granted.


“Let me tell you how difficult it is for this man to disappear from this world,” Roux said.


Prosecutor Nel earlier countered that everyone, whether disabled or famous or otherwise different from the majority, should be treated equally under the law. Nel noted that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is famous but is now holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sex-related charges.


Nair, the magistrate, will decide if Pistorius can be freed with conditions or if he is held until trial. Pistorius faces the sternest bail conditions in South Africa because of the seriousness of the murder charge, meaning his defence lawyers have to prove there is an “exceptional” reason for him to be freed.


Stephen Tuson, an adjunct law professor at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg and a practicing attorney, told The Associated Press that poor health, a weak state case, or a disability could be reasons to grant bail to a person accused of murder. But the “exceptional” circumstances Pistorius would have to prove to be freed are not established absolutely by law and are applied considering the individual merits of each case.


“(The matter of exceptional reasons) is not defined,” Tuson said. “We’ve had to have this concept expanded by the courts on a case by case basis.”


Pistorius’s defence has dedicated much of its argument in the bail hearing to questioning the state’s case against Pistorius and trying to discredit the police investigation into Steenkamp’s shooting. Lead investigator Hilton Botha was removed from the case Thursday following his bungled testimony for the prosecution and replaced by the South African police’s top detective, Vinesh Moonoo — who was in court Friday.


Defence lawyer Roux also stressed Pistorius’s disability Friday and said it was one of the reasons why he couldn’t easily flee the country.


“He cannot, cannot go unnoticed through airport security,” said Roux, adding that Pistorius also needs medical treatment for his stumps and has to have his prostheses adjusted on a monthly basis.


Pistorius’s longtime coach Ampie Louw had said before proceedings began that he is considering putting his runner back in training if he is granted bail to allow him to “get his mind kind of clear.”


Louw said he realizes that the Olympic athlete might not be emotionally ready to give any thought to running.


“The change is that he is heartbroken, that is all,” Louw said in the courtroom, surrounded by reporters and television cameras. “For me it is tough to see that. Not to be able to reach out and sit next to him and say ‘Sorry, man, it was a terrible accident.’ But I cannot do it, I must just sit here in court and that’s all.


“The sooner he can start working the better,” said Louw, who was the person who convinced the double amputee to take up track as a teenager a decade ago.


He has been held at a police station in Pretoria since last week, but suspects who are denied bail are typically held in a prison.


Roux argued on Thursday that the evidence backs Pistorius’s statement that he shot through a toilet door at his home because he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, killing her by accident.


“I think there will be a level of shock in this country if he is not released (on bail),” Roux said in court.


Opposing bail, Nel argued that Pistorius was too willing to shoot. The prosecution says Pistorius planned to kill his 29-year-old girlfriend, a model and budding reality TV star, after an argument in the early hours of Valentine’s Day.


“The reason you fire four shots is to kill,” Nel said.


Louw said he might put Pistorius — who overcame the amputation of his lower legs as a baby to compete at last year’s London Olympics — back on a morning and afternoon training routine if he is freed, believing it might help him to be able to run track again.


“You must give him space,” the coach said.
