Paralympic superstar Oscar Pistorius - murdered girlfrien

There have "previously been incidents at the home of Mr. Oscar Pistorius," said police spokeswoman Brigadier Denise Beukes. Police in South Africa do not name suspects in crimes until they have appeared in court but Beukes said that the 26-year-old Pistorius was at his home at the time of the death of Steenkamp and "there is no other suspect involved."

"Yes, there are witnesses and there have also been interviews this morning," Beukes told reporters outside the gated complex where Pistorius lived. "We are talking about neighbors and people that heard things that happened earlier in the evening and when the shooting took place."

If it was an accidental shooting, she should have been more careful. Everyone knew he was fully armed.

Reports in South African media outlets say he thought his g/f was an intruder.

If that's the defense...he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

I'll be here all week. Avoid the veal.

I am surprised you aren't desensitized by this type of thing happening bi-weekly in Baltimore.

the murders in baltimore are mostly drug dealers killing other drug dealers. Either way, i think it's pretty gross to make jokes about a person's murder like RIGHT after it happened.

Nike had pulled the ad in South Africa, and it has been removed from Pistorius' website.

First of all, it's lighten up Francis.

In a serious question.... when admitting him to prison, what do they do with his prosthetic legs? Are they considered a weapon? He could remove them and beat someone with them. Is it possible to file a shank out of the material of the leg? Create a lock pick? To me it seems like they would have to, but I'm sure in this country it would cause a huge outcry from advocates and the ADA and what not.

It's silly that it's in any better taste to make the joke months after something happened rather than hours.

He'd better find a good lawyer and get a leg up on his defense efforts.
