So the shots were not quick.

To me it sounds more like he became extremely mad at her for some reason, and then shot her during a long and violent argument.

Even his previous girlfriend's mother though he needed counseling, since he apparently has a very bad temper.

The girlfriend stated the following during her testimony:

Pistorius' ex testifies about his gunplay, temper



And a security guard who heard the shots stated the following:
To me, from the testimony I have heard, the time interval was between the initial series of 4 gunshots, and then the sound of his breaking down the door with the cricket bat, which sounded like gunshots. I'll have to go to your link later, but I didn't recall anyone saying that it was as long as 15 minutes between the first sounds of bangs, and the second set of bangs.

Does anybody else think it's pretty funny how he keeps calling the male prosecutor "M'lady"? I know it's supposed to be directed toward the lady judge but still ...

I think he is referring to the judge when he says that. It's comparable to "Your Honor," I think.

She was leaving, breaking up with him and he did not want her to have anyone else. Some people are trigger happy fools. Jealous, in a rage he grabbed his weapon and started firing. Ending a life was way too easy for this man. Hope this is not another O.J. The judge does not look like she is convinced of his crocodile tears.

The man may be remorseful; but it is probably only for himself. He should have let her go peacefully.

He was such a hero to so many, we admired him, now he has fallen way down as so many do. But, he is alive; he took a life he should not go free and live a merry old life!

He probably won't. Either he will get convicted of some random crime (like OJ) or somebody will mete out civil "justice." If he was truly afraid before this happened, he will probably be outright paranoid if he manages to not get incarcerated over this.

Here's another thought I just had about this quote from the neighbor witness Stipp:

Quote:
Stipp said the couple called security and heard what she thought was three more shots 15 minutes after she had first woken up. After the second set of shots there was no more screaming, neither male nor female, reports eNCA.
Stipp, an occupational therapist involved in medico-legal work, said she was "absolutely certain" the screaming she heard was female and repeatedly insisted it was not Pistorius. They had two different pitches, she said.
Stipp states that there was no more screaming (male or female) after the second set of gun shots was heard.

And yet, Pistorius claims he screamed after he realized he shot Reeva:

What Did Oscar Pistorius Fear When He Shot Reeva Steenkamp? : The New Yorker

Quote:
He says that he went to the bathroom, walking on his stumps, and saw a window open: “I wasn’t sure where to point my firearm. I had it pointed at the toilet, but my eyes were going between the window and the toilet. … Then I heard a noise from inside the toilet. …Before I knew it, I fired four shots at the door.” It only “dawned upon me” that Steenkamp might be in the bathroom, he said, after he went back to the bed and put his legs on.
“I was screaming and shouting the whole time. I don’t think I have ever screamed or cried like that. I was crying out to the Lord to help me, I was crying out to Reeva, I was screaming.” (Earlier, he had testified that he was glad that Steenkamp was a good Christian and prayed for him each night.) He described kicking the door with his prosthetics, then getting a cricket bat and knocking it down, and then seeing her: “She wasn’t breathing.”
So once again, Pistorius must be lying, otherwise the neighbors would have heard him screaming after the gun shots.

Well, I forgot to note that this post is all just my opinion!! Have been around people that are so mean and possessive, that I could almost see this happening. What tragic things happen to innocent people. Live and let live.....wish people with weapons would be careful. Why do some people shoot to kill? More questions. Why?
