I'm shocked that people on an Internet message board are making jokes about a story involving a double amputee with two blade runner style legs that shot his girlfriend.

John Cleese Tweeted that Pistorius' defense would be "that he was absoultely legless at the time".

By the time it would take him to remove his prosthesis to use as a weapon, he'd be jumped and beaten to a pulp.

But dependent upon design, I guess he could dismantle one and use any metal piece to make a shiv. But then he'd have to hop over to his potential victim. Who could easily knock him over.

Between Lance Armstrong, Joe Paterno, Tiger Woods and Oscar Pistorius, Nike's having itself quite a run.

Pistorius was moved to a "handi-capable" jail while awaiting trial.

Do they have such things here?

He wasn't wrong about that one, from my experience.

He is disabled and there should be cells that allow him to have some protection. If he is guilty of murder, he should spend time in prison, but he should not be subject to the absolute torture that could potentially arise because of his condition.

I admit I fail to see the link between petitioning to be able to run and the fact that once he takes down his magic spring-blades useful for just that one special activity, he is still a double amputee, and so he likely needs (at least) a special toilet and a shower...

I think it was more a case of other athletes and the various T&F governing bodies trying to keep him out, more than Pistorious fighting to get himself in.

And I also imagine his home is somewhat differently equipped than yours or mine.

I raised a stink (that wasn't well-received) earlier last year about Pistorious lobbying to be included in the Olympics, but also participating in the Paralympics as well. IMO, either one or the other. If you are a talented enough athlete to participate in the Olympics, you shouldn't be crushing lesser competition in the Paralympics.

On a side note, does anyone else NOT like handicap-accessible bathroom stalls? I don't like all that room around me.
