I cannot come up with a better explanation , either!.... influence from the uncle, the general influence of the inequality of Pistorius's generally squeaky clean high livin,world admired sportsmanshite, the usual story. As opposed to the general run of the population... Reeva herself had clout, and influence, but up against the male sports star, it proved to be a handicap.I always thought that there had been influence.
The dolus eventualis angle rested more in the bullets than the gun , I thought. Oscar purchased a particular kind of bullet to load up with, ammo that shot to not only kill, but to destroy, mangle, to mutilate .... killing was not enough. He loaded that gun with those bullets for a particular purpose, and while he can claim he forgot he had those in the chamber, he fired them four times into Reeva. Maybe something to do with his own perceived mangling from birth, and his long desire to punish someone with perfect limbs..Someone was going to pay. Just a late Sunday arvo thought.
