    The judge seemed to forget about the law as well! Some of the arguments put forward are plain weird...

    Why the break?? I thought the Judge was done with her verdict. Isn't sentencing done at a later date? :confused:

    Are they at recess? Will judge come back and make an announcement about sentencing date?

    I think this is a great shame. i don't know anything about South African law but this verdict lacks simple commonsense to me.

    It seems as though Oscar Pistorius might even walk away with no prison term at all for killing Reeva Steenkamp. I suppose Uncle Arnold is already looking around for his nephew's next sponsor. I hope Reeva's family can bring a civil suit.

    I sincerely hope we have some kind of "No dangerous, gun-crazy lunatics" rule here in the UK!

    Me either. Big fine and suspended sentence is my guess.

    I'm so disappointed with Masipa. She should have stuck to social work.

    Can the Steenkamps take him to a civil court as the Goldman's did with OJ and won?

    I also predict a suspended sentence, he'll have to be good for a few years.

    OP probably hit the track again, jmo.

    That will be quite different, because he's not famous and he's not SA's golden boy.

    I think he may get a year in jail or prison. Maybe.

    Probably, but he sold all his assets that the court knows of, so what they will receive? Pittance, I'd say.
