    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

Remember her ruling that Roux can put words in the mouth of the witness, or have you finally conceded that the State has a water tight case against OP. She should be commended for her sagacity and high level of professionalism displayed in conducting the most high profile murder trial in the history of SA being broadcast live to the whole world. OP with criminal intent used race as his excuse for the cold blooded murder of Reeva, the judge in all her wisdom had decided to run her court in a cool calm and resolute manner. The CDA in you would prefer her to in an agitated state of mind that would strengthen OP’s appeal in a higher court. Sorry to disappoint you, it won’t happen.



    He screamed to Reeva to call the police and for the intruder to get out of his home.Maybe he momentary lost his hearing during the shooting, that resulted in him not hearing Reeva screaming out in pain.Any rational thinker will conclude that his suspicious refusal to call the Police and inform Reeva parents about the accident that killed their daughter is amply proof of premeditation.
    1. I was not praising her, but I did observe that she tended to favor the defense.

    2. I am not a "CDA" as I have stated, and I believe that there have been admonitions about personalizing posts in such manner.

    3. I have absolutely ZERO stake in whether OP is found guilty or acquitted of all charges. I am interested in what the evidence shows.

    4. He did not refuse to call the police - he called Stander at 3:19 and asked him to call ambulance; he called Netcare at 3:20; He called security at 3:21. He was not trying to hide what had happened.

    And a person's actions after the fact are not typically evidence of premeditation in any event - actions after the fact can be seen as "consciousness of guilt" if they are obviously designed to misdirect an investigation or to prevent the discovery of potentially criminal acts and evidence. That did not happen here - not even a little bit.

    BBM part I question.
    OP supposedly could not or would not give a pass code for a cell phone that if it was indeed his was, according to ST's testimony, had to have been accessed many times a day. Then there's the cell phone that he did not give to police at all but instead gave directly to his defense who then withheld it for something like 5 days before disclosing it's existence and apparently only after having it examined and possibly scrubbed, as well as deliberately washing his hands and face before being examined by forensics stating he had permission.... oh and then there's the whole moving the body who by his own defense lawyer had to have already been deceased... and that's just off the top of my head. Also, who insisted on him needing clothes and a watch from the crime scene? Just wondering eh?

    Nel examining.

    4 shots hit the bathroom door. Explaining how he placed Reeva on toilet seat but wound on hip too low for that.

    Cpt M: 'Most likely she was in a standing position between the toilet and the door'

    'She was standing in front of the door, facing the door'

    taking all the measurements into account..

    bullet hole A = wound on the hip.. in terms of the door.. she was standing in front of the door, facing the door.

    this bullet penetrated and broke her hip bone completely. . she would collapse.. she wouldn't be able to stand. she slumps down.

    she didn't fall right onto the floor her head shot would not strike as she would be too low

    she fell down on top of the magazine rack... slumping..

    the next shot missed her, deflected, fragmented, and the fragments hit her on the back..

    Cpt M: The hip wound caused her to fall down....importance of magazine rack. If she fell on the floor arm and head wound too low. If she fell on the mag rack, they line up. After the hip wound, she fell down on the mag rack and was hit by bullet (hole B).

    He says the bruises on her back caused by bullet fragments.

    This is big evidence.

    That explains the wounds on her back and bruises behind her knee and shin.
