Even a burglar probably would have screamed out "Okay, stop shooting!" or something, right?

Can someone explain this to me? I'm not really following how it's possible for him to not know she was on the other side of the door.

ETA: Now, he is saying he made a mistake in the trial evidence.

The medical examiner said that it would be highly unlikely that a person being shot with one of those exbanding bullets would not have screamed out involuntarily. AS the watermelon video showed, that gun, even with smaller bullets makes things explode into pieces. As the prosecutor said, the interior of Reeva's head exploded.

I thought that all of the CSI investigators for both sides agreed the door was bashed in after the bullets when through it.

The mother looked so mad and disgusted, and even shook her head slightly, when Oscar was relating aspects of his and Reeva's "loving" relationship.

So close was he to the Taylors he regularly stayed with them at their home in northern Joburg. Trish repeatedly tried to persuade Pistorius to go for counselling and said she did not want her daughter to be involved with him if he did not."

Also more interesting stuff in the above article:

Wow, that's really telling.

I feel sorry for Samantha Taylor...you can see from photos of she and Oscar online that she was just a girl..and from the way she testified ---- that she was a young 17-year-old, Oscar may have been her first serious boyfriend. If I was her I couldn't help thinking ----it could have been me.

I don't think anyone believes he didn't hear Reeva screaming. If the neighbors could hear her, then he could.
