I’m just wondering if there are any of u following the murder trial of the famous South African Paralympian Oscar Pistorius?
This is obviously not a priority since most are busy planning weddings but I tend to be glued on the screen every night after work. It is so interesting.
I even labelled my invites, put them in envelopes, sealed & got them ready for distribution whilst watching the trial.

Commenting just to follow.

I’m following. TBH, it seemed open and shut to me, but his testimony seemed so genuine…
I suspect that maybe he is an unbalanced person who was very paranoid… wonder why they’re not crying mental health grounds?

I’ve kind of paid attention. A lot of things that the pundits say don’t make sense confound me. They wonder how he can say they were in bed asleep but yet she had just eaten, well, I get up all the time at night and dh sleeps right through it so it makes sense to me. I haven’t paid enough attention to make a hypothesis but I wouldn’t want to be the judge or on the expert panel.

Let’s see. There’s a noise in the bathroom and your partner’s not in bed next to you. What’s your first reaction – ask if he/she is in there, or find a gun and shoot through the door?
I haven’t followed the trial itself because it’s all too gruesome and sad. I have a sneaking feeling he’ll get away on a lesser charge, unfortunately.

aussiemum1248: I agree with you! I even asked my husband if he thought there was someone trying to break in, what would be his first thought? He said to check to see if I was in the bed and have me call 911 and get us out of the house. Not shoot through the door several times, hear me scream, and then ask if I’m in bed. I don’t think he’ll get 25 years in prison though. I do think he’s guilty.
I like trials and find them fascinating, even though they are upsetting.

Rachel631: I think the lack of emotion after he murdered her is very telling, versus the emotions that he is now displaying…. Polar opposite. I think he’s had plenty of time for the “heaviness” of all of this to have truly sunk in (which likely has been traumatic in itself) and to have coached himself on exactly how he SHOULD react had it been a genuine accident. No doubt he has mental issues. Anyone who brutally murders a “loved one” does.
It’s his life on the line here… So, I’m chalking it up to good acting.

Exactly. That’s what made up my mind right there. You don’t check to see where your partner is, but instead shoot at something unseen? Absurd.

- Wedding: April 2013 - A court...
Haven’t been following it closely, but yeah, guilty. Though agreed with PP, I doubt he’ll get charged with what he deserves.
