Oscar Pistorious was born in South Africa without legs and had special artificial legs made so he could become an outstanding runner. He even appeared in the Olympics. Oscar became famous in his native land and adored by gobs of women. One night when he was with a woman, Oscar claimed he heard a noise in the bathroom and assumed it was a murderer out to end his life. So, he blasted away with guns winding up killing his girl friend.
There was a trial for this famous person. As most trials of the famous conclude it is rare that any such person is sent to the electric chair. Oscar spent a few months in jail and was released to home confinement in a luxurious place with its own swimming pool. The South African Supreme Court of Appeals questioned the verdict and ordered a new trial. Oscar’s lawyer denounced this action because it “unfairly discriminated against the applicant on the ground of his disability, vulnerability, and anxiety.”
In other words, Oscar was scared, he did not have real legs so what else could he do but fire away to protect his life? I wonder if he ever was concerned about the life of the woman?
