Ok, so I've read the Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius' account of how and why he accidentally shot and killed his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius laid out a long manifesto explaining himself to a judge as to how it happened and why it was an accident and not premeditated murder.
All I have to say is: "WHAT DA?!!" "C'MON MAN!!!!!"
Does Pistorius honestly expect anyone to believe his bogus story that an intruder was in his bathroom?
EXCERPT: I grabbed my 9mm pistol from underneath my bed. On my way to the bathroom, I screamed words to the effect for him/them to get out of my house and for Reeva to phone the police. It was pitch dark in the bedroom and I thought Reeva was in bed.
Hey Oscar-- I know it was pitch dark but couldn't you have checked on Reeva to see if she was ok? Or at least woken her up to let her know that an intruder was in the house and that danger lurks? And if it was pitch dark how can you see a 9mm pistol underneath the bed but you couldn't see a full grown woman on the bed? And if you were screaming, how in the world didn't she hear you and woken up to your screaming?
EXCERPT: I noticed that the bathroom window was open. I realized that the intruder(s) was (were) in the toilet because the toilet door was closed and I did not see anyone in the bathroom. I heard movement inside the toilet. The toilet is inside the bathroom and has a separate door.
Hey Oscar-- What intruder in his right mind is going to use the "john" before robbing a place? Why in the world would he lock himself in your toilet?
EXCERPT: I fired shots at the toilet door and shouted to Reeva to phone the police. She did not respond and I moved backwards out of the bathroom, keeping my eyes on the bathroom entrance. Everything was pitch dark in the bedroom and I was still too scared to switch on a light. Reeva was not responding.
When I reached the bed, I realized that Reeva was not in bed. That is when it dawned on me that it could have been Reeva who was in the toilet. I returned to the bathroom calling her name. I tried to open the toilet door, but it was locked. I rushed back into the bedroom and opened the sliding door exiting onto the balcony and screamed for help.
Hey Oscar-- That is when it dawned on you???? Before recklessly firing shots at the toilet couldn't you have first yelled, "HEY REEVA! HONEY IS THAT YOU IN THE TOILET?" "ARE YOU STILL IN THE BEDROOM?" If Reeva comes out of the bedroom or yells "I'm in the bedroom honey, what's wrong?", then you know it's an intruder and you fire shots at the toilet.
It mind boggles me how (according to Pistorius) Reeva was "sound asleep" during all this. Unbelievable!
Good luck with this lame story, buddy!
