That's right keep on suggesing that it was 'just an accident' so that -

1/ The gullible sport crazy 'Hero' worshipping public will eventually believe it.
and more importantly
2/ So will a 'Dumb & Dumber' jury!

This is the strategy of his defence team.

At least they haven't (yet) proffered the age old defence -'I didn't know the gun was loaded'

Remember that one?

... and of course the other old standby -'The gun just went off'.

Either are enough to make you laugh - or perhaps cry.

If only poor Reeva could speak to us.

What part was an accident? He purposefully fired into a room he knew had a human being inside. The question is not accident or murder, the question is culpable homicide or murder. There was no accident, he deliberately set out to gun down another human being. If it was an intruder we would be dealing with a different dead body.
