Re: "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend dead

I hear some fans are sending him support... REALLY? After all this?

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

And he was never caught doping. Yeah, for sure doping tests are 100% reliable.

Oh, absolutely. When someone flips out and kills an innocent person, even if drugs are the cause, it's no excuse. I was just struck by all the guns he had and how he appeared to be a kind of paranoid guy who had also been abusive to at least one other woman in his life.

The more I read, the more I think that he did kill her in some rage. I feel so sorry for the woman's family and his family. For him, I feel that he threw away his life with both hands. That makes me sad, but he does need to be in jail for a very long time.

may be he can get out of it by using those "insane" "affected by drugs" excuses?

from what I read in internet today, that intruder story is as fake as hell. He said he woke up in the middle of the night, heard some noise in the bathroom, thought an intruder was inside so he shot the door 4 times without opening at and while at the same time, he admitted that the girl friend was in the same bed with him on that night. How come he did not realise that his girl friend was not in the bed when he got up and could be in the bathroom?

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

How come he did not realise that his girl friend was not in the bed when he got up and could be in the bathroom?

Or some other valid questions:

How come the robber, who had entered the house and most likely noticed someone was home, went to the bathroom, closed the door and started to make noise. What was he gonna steal anyway? medicines? Is it worth it to break into a gated community with guards and rich ppl to raid their bathrooms? Makes no sense.

How come Pistorious didn't use his fully functional ability to speak and told his gf to call the police BEFORE seeking confrontation with a potentially armed robber. Why would he tell he AFTERWARDS (and find she wasn't there). So the idea was to wake her up to gunshots and freak her out completely? or potentially get killed himself in a fight with a robber and have no help on the way? His body is crippled, not his brain.

In the same way he should also have screamed at the intruder before firing and heard a womans shocked reply. He claims to have done that. In that case why wouldn't his gf respond to Pistorious mistaking her for a robber?

How did he hit the "robber" so perfectly with multiple shots though a locked door unless the robber actually were standing right behind the door and he knew that and was having an argument with said person? A real robber wouldn't stand still behind a door getting caught and wait for the police. He would've made an attempt to escape right away, as soon as Oscar called out.


In short the story has more holes than his practice targets at the shooting range.


My own theory: Oscar had been drinking too much, he and his gf had a major fight, she escaped his "wrath" by locking herself into the bathroom. Oscar got even angrier and went for something to get the door up. His gf probably didn't know he had gone for one of his guns and was arguing/threatening to leave him through the door, Oscar fired his gun a few times in a fit of rage.

If the prosecutors use witnesses from neighboors and security guards in the area they can most likely prove the fight between the couple on said evening/night, loud bangs following since he didn't use a silencer, and it will be downhill from there because it will torpedo his own story. Technical evidence can easily prove how close he was to the door when firing and how close she was to the door on the other side when getting hit, including various other things that put even more holes in his story.

In short: game over. Question is more if he can escape murder in the first degree and get a less severe charge, most likely by using the fact he could have been mentally unstable due to alcohol abuse/drug abuse

saw this on another site...


If this bathroom is ensuite to the bedroom, it makes his story even more unlikely.

Hell, we don't even need circumstantial evidence to know that his story was complete bullshit.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Yup, an intruder locking himself up in the bathroom, and making noise there enough to wake someone up many meters away is insane proposition.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Now, now.

An herbal remedy called testo-composutim co-enzyme .



I can't find the testo-composutim co-enzyme on the internet, but I do find Coenzyme-Compositum. It's in a tablet form.

I'm sure there's another explanation for the needles.

Re: "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend dead

I used to respect and admire this son of a bitch... Now I kinda hate him... It seems you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. It could be a really bitchy book.

Rot in prison, Pistorius.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Re: "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend dead

I read from the posters in TF that the polices look very incompetent and were being kicked hard by the defense lawyers. I fear that he may get out of it just like OJ Simpson
