Oscar, stay strong boet

23 February 2013, 18:22
After accidently killing the person he loves, something that will carry a curse on his heart for life, he's branded a deliberate killer with intention.

So much speculation and media coverage is given to possible alternatives to Oscar's reality that he's already guilty.

Whilst I agree with a judicial system that allows for conceivable alternatives to stated fact, I strongly dispute the court acceptance of a viable option in this case. In fact, it's a disgrace to this country.

I guarantee you that Oscar is on a suicide watch, he cannot come to terms with what he's done. This is a mistake that he is questioning living for.

The media attention, combined with fabricated or altered possibilities have done nothing but create attention and further destroy the man we all love.

There can be no further punishment than the guilt he must now live with and I pity him greatly.

The court is a shame. Considering or allowing so called evidence to support their concocted version of events is truly disgraceful to our nation. After 3 days of arguments and sometimes incredulous contemplation a 2 hour lecture is endured to an obvious conclusion that did nothing but defend the decision maker.

The media is something else.

Forget the tasty flesh, just go for the heart. Every supposed argument from the state was instantly headline news and of course to the detriment of our loved man, who should still allowed the chance to continue to be an inspiration to millions across the world.

Oscar has committed a crime that was not intended.

To not believe him is a reflection of where we are. Crime is the biggest issue we have to deal with in this country, the statistics are beyond belief.

This is certainly having an influence on our judicial system as well as logic appears to be going out of the window.

Avery fragile man is with his family. The press will remain until the right photo is taken or another piece to the state's puzzle is conceived.

Our heartfelt thoughts should be with comforting his troubled mind.

I still believe in you Oscar, stay strong boet.
