Sitting in the dock...

25 March 2014, 09:41
I imagine most people have never experienced the daunting reality of sitting in a courtroom.
For those that do not know, While you sitting on that wooden chair, There is one God. That God happens to be the judge.

In a whisker, your fate can be determined. The Bible tells us that a wise man will settle his dispute and avoid the courts if possible. 
Watching the O 'what a' scar saga, We get to see the realities of our own lives. Reflections of our own relationships and more so, revelation of our 'justice' system.
If I had watched a case such as this when I was a kid, I may have chosen to be a prosecutor. I guess many would want to emulate the Foxy Roux or the highly intellectual Oldwage.
Maybe some would be inspired to become a ballistics expert. You need the stomach for that though.
I cant wait to hear what Texts was sent and what time these messages was made.
When Judge Masipa allowed for the last adjournment, I thought she may say we must resume in 5 minutes time. It was way too exciting to leave it till the next morning. 
Seems the prosecution is administering their check mate..
Seems unlikely that then defense can remove all the scars made by the prosecution.
We get to see a time were money actually means nothing. 
SA is facing a generation of lies, Our president lies, his ministers lie, his spokesmen lies, Even the teachers are lying to our kids.
We need a bit of honesty in SA.
Only then, can we fix that which is broken.
