Oscar Pistorius

without comments

What really happened on the night of the 13th to the 14th February 2013? A fallen star won’t forget it this Valentine’s day. With four shots in the night prevailed (26) Oscar Pistorius, the South African Olympian and national hero a dubious monument, itself for all times and thus brought his person suddenly too small around the world in focus, which still not had known him hitherto despite its para-Olympic success (at least by name). From the acclaimed blade runner with the amputated lower legs, a “Blade-gunner”, stretching down his own girlfriend, the South African model Reeva Steenkamp (29), through the closed bathroom door of his mansion in Pretoria with four shots because he has said they thought a burglar was suddenly in the early hours of the morning of 14 February 2013. Immediately after his arrest, already the press reports from around the world were over. There was talk of repeated domestic violence in the home of Pistorius in the past. Of strife, from the security service of the well-guarded residential complex cited by neighbors several times to the House of the athlete.

With a bats he bashed his head Reeva and then shot them. The mother of an ex-girlfriend Pistorius’ spoke theatrically, she thank God on my knees, that her daughter was no longer together with this man, because she got to see Oscars dark side several times and had fear of death before him. The case seems clear: A lovers ‘ quarrel has escalated and a man known as Hothead has lost control. Even psychologists from sad experience to certify that the most dangerous man for a woman is her own, also supports this assumption. With Barry Roux Pistorius took a South African star lawyer, who delivered in the bail hearing a taste of what we can expect from him in the trial, which is scheduled for June 2013.
