But yet when roux was cross examining you didnt have a similar problem?.
Some people are not happy with people's posting so we all get lumped into the big nasty ball and get bashed by people on the forum.
So its okay to bash Nel, the prosecutor, but OP is off limits?
He was photographed with a black eye for a promotional thing he had already committed to. Reeva's enemies said that SHE had given him the black eye.
I used to have one. I never really liked them as a kid, as it was the only type of dog I'd ever been bitten by.
Anyhow, I got one and she was absolutely brilliant. Unusually she wasn't a yapper as well. She was the shyest one in the litter, so maybe that had something to do with it. She could bark when she needed to tho.
She was called Star. :angel:
Just bumping this, as it seems the session ended exactly as it began. Isn't there some term for when professionals have to maintain a proper distance and separation between themselves and clients, but they allow it to get confused?
How thoughtful and helpful to call netcare!
And he does like talk about what a hero he is.
Nel is being tough but no more than Roux. Roux used a squirmingly artificial niceness at times and then called the witness a liar. I would much prefer no messing. This is a court of a law not a family chat about a murder.
It is a hearing loop to help him follow the trial i use a similar one at home to watch t v.
After the glorious recounting of the special deeds of the illustrious Oscar Pistorius, I'll be disappointed if the Vatican doesn't convene a special meeting, during which it is decided that a living person can be granted sainthood.
BIB But you loved when Roux was doing it! :floorlaugh:
Mr. Nel is much better at this stuff than Roux. Mr. Nel actually gets the witness to break and change their story. Lovely day for the PT today.
I'd say that went both ways
Agreed. :seeya: US citizen here. I've never heard that it's considered rude to comment that a specific urban area is high in crime when the statistics back it up. Crime is committed by all races and nationalities, and specifying a place is 'urban' is simply specifying it is of or pertaining to the city, not a suburb, and not rural.
It's not racist at all! You can talk about the factual high crime rate of certain areas and cities and not be considered racist. It's just a fact.
I have definitely seen an article saying there had been no incidents in the previous two years.
That's what I meant by we.
I think the judges pen should be a mini Taser and if any lawyer steps out of line.....:whip2:
We know all of that .. but what we are saying is that this was never just a freak accident, say for instance she was out in the garden with him, doing a bit of work on the garden cutting down a branch of a tree or something and that branch happened to fall and hit her on the head and kill her. It's not that kind of accident .. in this instance, OP, deliberately and intentionally killed someone, and that someone turned out to be Reeva (whether he knew it at the time or not!). There is no possibility of innocence, because the law does not allow a person to shoot a target behind a closed door and without establishing who your target is, first .. OP failed to do that, and he failed to ensure that it wasn't his girlfriend behind that door (either that or he knew it was her, and intended to kill her .. but neither of those scenarios will ever mean that he is innocent).
Sometimes I used to wonder what the Arias forum would have been like if Nurmi had been prosecuting and Martinez defending. Crazy to think about. I equally wonder how this case would play out if Nel and Roux swapped roles.
You're correct, but that's why the state needs to prove premeditation. That's where the presumption of innocence bit plays out. He is not innocent but he is as yet not guilty of premeditated murder.
Hope Nel asks OP if he stayed around and gave police a report in those two incidents. Sounds like in the many crime examples of OP's, he's always the victim-by-proxy, i.e. anecdotes of others' encounters with criminals.
