Oscar could improve our jails

15 April 2014, 11:54
If Oscar was to be scored by his performance in the witness box, 
If we were to count the mistakes or lapses or contradictions he has made, My count has it estimated at a mistake every 30 seconds and it keeps getting worse.
Who can argue now that only the truth, the hard telling truth can lift that boulder off his shoulders?

I think his supporters are doing him much harm. He may well believe that if he has support, then he has a reasonable doubt upon him.
Seems he has waited a year to deal with this trial and he hardly processed the facts as he could have.
Reality has surely struck, and if there is even one family member that could still believe him, It would be his late mom. Mom's can be expected to protect their young no matter what.
When the people that love him most, realize that they have been feeding the ' monster' in him for years. Their denial and covering up has contributed to this sad story. People that suffer from a from mental illness are more likely to fall apart if they ignore on going symptoms of anger and madness.
Oscar could be partly crazy and clearly needed medication. He had no business getting a gun. But his loved ones are the people I question!
You know the man's a 'hot head' , you all knew it dammit !
Why did you allow him to be a gun crazy freak ?
When a man has a temper, he cannot own a gun, I am not sure what the law says, But common sense would establish that.

The fat lady is singing and she is holding her note...
Anyway, I would like to see an athletic track built at the jail he will serve at.
It could improve the jail somewhat.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
