Oscar’s wild rants on FB

2014-03-10 00:00

OSCAR Leonard “does not get angry, he gets even”.

This is one of the posts on an old Face­book page that looked like that of Oscar Pistorius.

Another states Oscar Leonard is waiting for the baby seal clubbing season.

Leonard is Pistorius’s second name.

Sister paper Beeld had found the old Facebook profile of one Oscar Leonard and all indications are it had been created years ago by Pistorius.

The creator calls himself “Oscar Leonard” but there are several references to races, overseas trips and international athletic meetings. The posts contain expletives and several references to violence.

One post from November 1, 2009 advises “in event of sudden cabin pressure dropping … scream and suffocate the people next to you before trying to secure your own oxygen”.

On September 13, 2008, a post states Oscar Leonard “is getting ready to rape those yakee [sic] mofos on the 200 m”.

And on June 9, 2007, a post about the frustrations of air travel describes how he is “waiting to board a stupid f****** palane [sic] to London only to wait 11 hours for a connecting flight”.

According to the Facebook page, Oscar Leonard matriculated in 2005 from Pretoria Boys’ High, just like Pistorius.

His Facebook friends included Amiée Pistorius, Pistorius’s younger sister, and Ampie Louw, his coach for many years.

The page had been removed from Face­book on Friday.
