My views Oscar Pistorius' tragic "accident" on the morning on February 14th.

Shock Horror

I was in complete shock earlier this morning to find out that South Africa's ultimate hero "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius had shot his 30 year old girlfriend dead at four am. According to reliable news sources, she entered his Pretoria home to surprise him for Valentines Day (how cute?). Pistorius thought it was an intruder and ended up shooting her four times. According to neighbours, they had been fighting the previous evening. There have also been reports of domestic violence at previous stages. Oscar has been charged with murder, but will go to court at a later stage.

My Views

I have always been a fan of the Blade Runner. He has always been a true South African hero in the country's eyes. The respect I gained for the man during the 2012 London Olympic Games where he ran the 400m with abled bodied men has now gone under serious question. To me, this story does not add up. Keeping in mind he does not have legs, I understand why a gun would be necessary at his Pretoria home. The question is, why would you blindly shoot someone four times? I am not saying it was deliberate, but I am skeptical as to how bizarre the story seems. I will definitely be watching the news for more information on this case. I wish Oscar all the best if he he made an innocent mistake, as this will haunt him like a ghost for the rest of his life. If he is found guilty, all I can say is that I think I need to stop looking up to sportsmen as they seem to keep disappointing me.

The high and low of life alternate, but to kill if deliberately done is beyond reason - siva

I would think that athletes must be admired for their special skills, but to look to them as role models is dangerous. In most cases they are certain to disappoint. Nice article.

Blindly shooting someone once would be accidental. Shooting someone four times smells of something else.
