Oscar trial is the biggest sideshow

26 March 2014, 20:30
In the very week that the prosecutors have stated their case, we have thousands upon thousand of other cases. 

Non that are televised and for the few others that grabs media attention such as Radovan Krejir and Gavin Louca, we see a different reality.

Case postponed and guess why ? The experts were too busy with the Oscar case ? 
What a joke we are in SA.

To believe this trial simulates in any way a reality of ours is complete false.
And boy do we have a crack team of journalists on this one.

The Carte' Blanche has managed a 24 HR news channel just to show everybody how a trial could be and maybe should be,
But actually, the system is broken and possibly beyond repair.

How can George Luoca not be a massive priority and why is the prosecution so slow and unprepared ?

Delay delay delay

Well, maybe if we got to see a bit closer, we will find that our police and courts are in the criminals pockets,
Yes, Oscar may well sit, and we all may think that our country has a justice system in place and a system that works.

In SA, The strategy in the courts is delay delay delay, Until the case is thrown out..
I think our Journalists are route cause of the peoples blindness.

Sensationalism sells, they could not care a bit about revealing the truth.
The Oscar trial is a unique case, But it does not reflect how things really work.

I feel betrayed being glued to channel 199, what a farce,
Must be hundreds of thousands of cases that entail rape murder and fraud, 
Nothing will happen regarding the most of these....
