Oscar is guilty?

25 February 2013, 14:01
So this past Friday I was one of several people I can imagine who were listening to the judge read the judgments for the bail application for Oscar Pistorius and I must say now, I think Oscar is guilty.

Now I am not judging the man before the time of trial, but it's important to at least have an opinion about this worldwide phenomena case involving an Olympic athlete and universally known runner with blades.

Before all the facts of last week, I was in all minds accurate about his innocence, but after the evidence learned since then, it is apparently that maybe Oscar can be guilty of this crime of which he is standing accused.

I'm an not an investigative offices or any kind of forensic scientist or doctorate, but I believe the following facts are questionable and give rise to other unanswered questions about that fateful night at Oscar's house.

1.  The security cameras of the estate has revealed that both Reeva and Oscar arrived within 10 minutes of each other, so they had plans to meet.

2.  Oscar was receiving threats and also had workers in the garden so his home was maybe a suspect and not secure which could have made him fearful.

3.  In the early hours of the morning, he heard noises in the toilet and went to investigate.

4.  He goes to get a weapon and comes back to the toilet but doesn't first maybe ask where his girlfriend is.

5.  He still hears the toilet noises and returns fire, a few times and the tragedy then has happened.

I would never just open fire first without maybe attaining the wherebouts of my loved ones especially if they are in the toilet.

I am not the one to pass judgement or condem, but after these facts it appears as if Oscar does not have a safe story.

And one other thing, this will be a career threatening case because everyone is watching.

But after all of this, I can think now that Oscar is guilty.
