    Tragic end of two young lives. Sincerest sympathy to Reeva’s family, and to Oscar’s too. Disabled, awoken in the dark at 4am – wouldn’t most people reach for the weapon beneath the pillow before they stumble through the door? And in an instant, two worlds forever change. Panic causes impulsive reaction, with tragic consequences. Tragic.

      Were you born in a soap opera? Awoken in the dark at 4am? He lives in Silver Lakes, how many other people sleep with guns under their pillows? How about, fighting till 4am, being threatened with your life, locking yourself in the bathroom out of frantic fear, Pistorius threatening to knock the door down, you cowering in the bathroom screaming and crying, Pistorius threatening to shoot you through the door, Pistorius going to fetch his gun from a safe (do you see the pre-meditated part kicking in now?), Pistorius actually carrying through with his threat, your life ends…help me understand where the pity should be for Pistorius?
