Oscar Pistorius

A South African judge has cleared Olympic and Paralympic track star Oscar Pistorius of murdering his girlfriend. Judge Thokozile Masipa, who is a black female, simply said Pistorius was "negligent" when he fired multiple shots through a bathroom door killing model Reeva Steenkamp last year.

At least 3 neighbors -- including a doctor -- testified they heard a woman's "terrified screams" the morning Pistorius shot and killed Steenkamp.

Oscar Pistorius But Masipa said she was "not persuaded" that a reasonable person with Pistorius' abilities... would have fired the shots that killed the law graduate and model.

Masipa will read her full verdict in open court on Friday morning South Africa time, which is 6 hours ahead of the Eastern time zone.

Pistorius, whose legs were amputated as a child, was the first Paralympian to run in the Olympics. He was dubbed 'Bladerunner' because of his custom running blades.

      What are yall talking about? :stop: This man is going to jail. How could he get off on the weapons charge. Her language all but says "you going to jail". :yes: She called him negligent.

      He was only acquited of premediated murder.. and what i think would be our manslaughter is still on the table.. The prosecution didnt prove the premeditated case basically.

      :think: :huh: :shrugs:

      ok help me out rosebushels. what point am I missing here? I know there is one but ion get it.

    • OutsidetheBox

      “Culpable homicide,” or manslaughter,... the judge explained her reasoning on this charge, applying what she termed “the test of a reasonable man.”

      In other words, the judge examined whether it was reasonable for Pistorius to fire four shots through his bathroom door at what he believed was an intruder... Masipa did say Pistorius did not pass this test.

      “All the accused had to do was pick up his cell phone to call security,” Masipa said of Pistorius’s reaction. She added that Pistorius could also have “run to the balcony” and called for help. Masipa added that she was “not persuaded that a reasonable person with the accused’s disabilities would have fired four shots” into the home’s small bathroom.
