    This is what he says happened:

    I could see being scared, given what a lot of people are saying about crime in SA, though not sure someone would normally shoot through a closed door . . .

    Mr. Pistorius said he and Ms. Steenkamp had gone to bed early on Wednesday night, but in the middle of the night he heard a noise from the bathroom and went to investigate on his stumps, not his artificial legs.

    He was nervous, he said, because the bathroom window did not have burglar bars and contractors who had been working there had left ladders behind.

    The room was dark, he said, and he did not realize that Ms. Steenkamp was not in bed. He felt vulnerable and fearful without his prosthetics and opened fire at the door, he said, calling to Ms. Steenkamp to telephone the police.

    Only then did he realize that she was not in bed, he said. He put on his artificial legs and tried to kick down the door before breaking it open with a cricket bat to discover Ms. Steenkamp.

    He carried her downstairs, he said, and “she died in my arms.”

    That's his defense? He was scared so he randomly pumped rounds through a closed door?

    I bet the prosecution is all like, "Pfft, he doesn't have a leg to stand on!"

    Amirite?

    Now that is BS.

    Whenever I hear a noise, the first thing I do is check to see if the Mrs was awoken by it (hell she's lying right there, you can't turn your head to find out if she is there or not???) and if she is awake, you ask her if she heard it.

    This guy is a legless pos.

    His version is so far fetched it might actually be true. It's scene from a Coen brothers movie.


    This is why I'm not a cop.

    You'd spend all your time loosening "too tight" handcuffs, and helping the prisoners diagram how stuff wasnt actually "on them" when they were arrested. Then when you were found depansed, disarmed and locked in the otherwise empty holding cell, you wouldnt snitch, blaming a prank by unamed precinct hooligans.

    Cuffs are always too tight. I pride myself in never btching. My wrist and hands were numb for two months once. After sitting in the back of the cruiser for hours while they decided what rabbit they could pull out of their asses to cart me off to bklyn detn. They arrived at resisting arrest. Idiots.

    I'm already half way there, just not quite ready to leave lala land.


    So Prosecution now has a witness saying he heard 1 gunshot, female screams then more gunshots. Plus that gun shot angles don't match his version where he said he was without his blades. Wonder how he'll spin this one.

    Can't imagine how scared that poor girl must have been.

    What, pray tell, led up to them cuffing you? Were they cruising by and decided you were the one they were going to falsely arrest that day?

    Oscar Pistorius referred to state mental hospital for psychiatric evaluation

    Judge suspends trial in shock decision, saying she needs to be sure of the athlete's mental state before deciding if he is innocent or guilty of murdering girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp

    An expert witness for the defense testified that Pistorius had an anxiety disorder that may have influenced his judgment


    The trial of Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic athlete accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, has been dramatically halted after the judge referred him for compulsory psychiatric assessment at a state mental hospital. Judge Thokozile Masipa said evidence introduced by a psychiatrist that Pistorius was suffering from a Generalised Anxiety Disorder which might have influenced his actions on the night he killed Steenkamp “cannot be ignored”.
    She said she was aware of the delay the referral for 30-day evaluation would cause, but said any suggestion of mental illness that might diminish his criminal responsibility for what happened should “never been taken lightly”.

    "This is not about anyone's convenience but about whether justice has been served,” she said.

    Pistorius, 27, is accused by the state of shooting Steenkamp, 29, four times through a locked lavatory door at his Pretoria home in the early hours of February 14 last year after the couple had a row. He insists he did so thinking she was an intruder.


    He is expected to be admitted to Weskoppies public psychiatric hospital on the outskirts of Pretoria where he will be observed by three psychiatrists over 30 days.

    Crucially for the defendant, the judge asked for him to be admitted as an outpatient, meaning he will be able to return each night to his uncle’s comfortable home in Pretoria where he has been living since the shooting on February 14 last year.

    “The aim is not to punish the accused twice,” Judge Masipa told Pistorius’s lawyer and the prosecutor after making her order. “If there is a possibility of making sure he's an outpatient, that's preferable."

    Pistorius was told to stand as the judge read out her decision, and seemed calm with the outcome, which was communicated to him beforehand by his lawyers who had been informed by the judge in chambers.

    He declined to speak to journalists as he left court, but his family indicated that they understood the judge’s need for a “belts and braces” approach. Pistorius’s personal psychologist, who has been at his side throughout the trial, said her greatest concern had been his possible admission as an inpatient.
    Arnold Pistorius, the athlete’s uncle, said in a statement that the family was “comforted by the thoroughness and detail of this judgment”.
    A source in the defence team said they were happy with the outcome, despite opposing the referral requested by Gerrie Nel, the state prosecutor.
    “If they find there was an aspect of diminished responsibility, that’s an open pass,” the source said.

    The police investigating team said they had not expected the judge to rule in the state's favour but welcomed the chance to rule out any diminished responsibility Pistorius might have had for what happened. Mr Nel had warned the judge Pistorius might raise the lack of proper psychiatric evaluation at appeal if he is convicted of Steenkamp's murder.

    “Better now than on appeal,” one said. “If it’s an issue, we need to know. We’re prosecutors, not persecutors.”
    Pistorius’s legal team had opposed the state’s application for their client to be referred, saying the GAD was only raised as a factor in what happened rather than a cause.

    Mr Nel suggested Barry Roux, Pistorius’s barrister, introduced the evidence late in the trial because his client had done “badly” on the witness stand.
    Judge Masipa said that either way, the possibility of mental illness had been raised. "Dr Vorster's evidence was placed before court by the defence,” she said. “A doubt has created that the accused may possibly have another defence."

    The judge will hand down her official order, which will include the terms of Pistorius’s assessment, on Tuesday next week.
