Yes very sad that the family have to loose their beautiful daughter under such tragic circumstances, but I really do not believe that this young man has intentionally killed his girlfriend,who just hours before was sending love letters to one another. I really think it was an accident and almost think that justice is being served to show who is in power at the moment. Let hope that this is not another case like our famous cricket player! Yes I think you may be dealing with a over zealous young punk who has let all the fame go to his head, but a murderer NO!

I really do believe he is guilty. Neighbours say they heard screams then gun shots. The police are charging him with first degree murder and rightfully so. I hope he rots in jail but unfortunately he has fancy lawyers who will probably get him off!

damnpistorius should feel guilty and rot for what he's done
instead of reclaiming home arrests, freedom, forgiveness.
also a bloody crikcet bat was found.
I wonder why Reeva would hang around with such arrogant jealous control freak

All the publicly available information suggests that the killing was intentional.

Three shots through a door into the confined space of a bathroom could be guaranteed to hit their target, either directly or by ricochet.

A single shot might have been explained away as an accidental discharge but not four.

With his team of high priced lawyers and "experts" just one single mistake by the prosecution will get him off the hook and the chances are good that that is what will happen.

that's very true, since the end of apartheid everything has gone to shit for both the white and the coloured. Security force is outsourced to private companies and there's only so few official police out here, just imagine every 1 police here having to investigate 10 cases of rapes, 6 cases of burglary, 3 murders and 2 domestic violence every single day with minimum pay. This is what's wrong with South Africa today, it's very unsafe to go anywhere alone, you're scared to leave your own house, you even have to pay hundreds for a moderate sense of security in your own home.

But still it doesn't mean this guy's innocent. I mean if he knew someone was in the bathroom, the first thing I check would be if my family/beloved ones are right there beside me. It's not logical to shoot away at the closed bathroom door while you know your girl is staying in your home. If he'd just check that she was there this tragedy would have been averted.

Reeva and her family lost Big Time today.
The good news is that S.A. families can still refugee out. Thousands of Rhodesians are living productive lives in safety in Countries around the World.

Reeva's body was an important piece of forensic evidence - why was it not retained? I suspect many believe Pistorius is lying but as his lawyer knows - evidence is all that counts, and the victim's body was crucial in that. Remember OJ!
From here on it is vital that the prosecution acquire the best forensic experts, and stop using "keystone cops".
