Oscar Pistorius.......doomed like icarus

18 February 2013, 11:00
What is you idea of justice for Reeva Steenkamp, Anene Booysens and that 100 year old gogo raped somewhere in the Eastern Cape lately?

Lets ignore the media generated hype and focus on the horror that is killing the womb of innocence, the killers and assailants whether their high profiled TV Actors or athletes notwithstanding.

Oscar has consistently maintained that it " was all a mistake" and Reeva's mother wants answers. So does South Africa because what we are experiencing is a civil war where lawless brigands strike at will and with impunity since they do not fear the law or the consequences of their action.

We need answers first and punishing the killers and assailants wont  give us that especially when were are so angry and we want swift justice.

So what is your idea of justice for Reeva , Anene and that 100 year old gogo and whist we're at it what justice must Oscar expect. For after all we are a country with a constitution that guarantees everyone the right to be presumed innocence and the right to a fair trial.

Poor Oscar, he's doomed either way like icarus!
