That says it all.

I think he is 100% guilty!

She obviously must have screamed after the first bullet hit her, so there is no reason in the world for him to fire 3 more bullets, or for him to not be aware he was firing at her.

This trial is not going to be another O.J. I believe the judge will find him guilty...

Default Pistorius' trial: Text messages are read

I've been reading about the trial for Oscar Pistorius in the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

This article is about text messages from her phone to his saying that she was afraid of his anger and jealousy.

Oscar is an arrogant control freak who it was said went off his head if Reeva spoke to another man at a party or as he thought ignored him.... the girl said she was scared from him in a phone call or text...There is also another story from 2009 about Oscars bad temper, Oscar Pistorius’ Domestic Violence History Before Shooting Girlfriend - Hollywood Life another slant on the story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...oor-party.html

As this trial goes on, it seems to be more and more of a joke, but the defense is putting a good one on. I can't think of any straw ungrasped here to make him justified..
