Look, I know everybody is tired of this story, and a hell of a lot of comments and articles have been written.
I just want to “put one question” to you, would you (the supporters of Oscar), support a “normal” person under the same circumstances? Would you have supported a man, you don’t know personally when he gave you his version of events like Oscar? I know what most response will be : A normal person wouldn’t have been subjected to this public circus, but if take the facts into account…
Is Michelle Burger, her husband, Dr Stipp and his wife all lying (in some devilish complot against Oscar) about the screams that night? Is it reasonable to think that the police sabotaged him and moved two fans, the duvet, the jeans, the cricket bat, the phones, the gun, the pistol holder etc etc? Why does he remember certain details EXACTLY as they happened that night, and then other details are foggy. It’s signs of a person telling a story that’s not true.
I truly believe Oscar did not intend to kill her, or in that moment lost all sense of reason. He was blind with rage, because he didn’t want a scandal, like a gun going off in a restaurant to come out in fear of public repercussion, he sure as hell wouldn’t plan to shoot a women and the scream accident.
People blindly support Oscar, based on his “status” as an athletic hero. They believe his statement (which makes no sense at all) based on their impression and the persona generated by his PR people. People supporting him often ask the question – how do you know his lying? Where you there that evening? So I want to ask the same question to his supporters? How do you know his telling the truth? Where you there that evening? Based on the facts of the case, he did not think she was an intruder. Gerrie Nel is doing his job, that’s it. Go into any court room, the prosecutor will do the same to any murder accused person (irrespective of his place in society). I do think the photo of Reeva was brutal, and shouldn’t have been shown, but I think he did it to show people what happened to Reeva, and how Oscar took this young woman life.
Look I’m not for or against Oscar, but thus far the facts point to all but an accident. Where is the support for Reeva? Where are her white balloons? She has just become another statistic of abuse against women.
Good luck Oscar, and Reeva’s family. This is a terrible time, but justice will prevail.
