Quietly enjoy the Daily Maverick completely ripping to pieces Oscar Pistorius’ claims under oath, about that boating accident he had on ‘the Vaal.’
When Jani Allen alleged that murder-accused, Oscar Pistorius had taken acting classes before taking the stand in his defence, our interest piqued. When Oscar’s family denied the allegation, we believed them. It’s irrelevant whether Oscar took acting classes, or not. I mean, Brad Pitt never did. It turns out that loads of actors never did.
MH:370 – now what? South Korea ferry death toll 100+. Oscar didn’t take acting classes. Man U manager out. Malema’s Louis Vuitton problem. Lohan had miscarriage during reality show. Leo to play Steve Jobs? Tiger’s ex tight with girlfriend.
South Africa’s favourite reality TV show, the ‘Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial,’ has been adjourned by Judge Masipa. An application was brought before the court by defence Advocate Barry Roux, in agreement with state prosecutor, Gerrie Nel that the trial be postponed for a number of weeks.
9 dead and 288 missing as Ferry goes underwater. Amputee comes clean and apologises for killing wife. DA commercial on/off air result. Nel punishes ‘expert’ witness. North Korea won’t let the hairdresser issue go. Smartphones will get a ‘kill switch’ soon.
Criminal law expert William Booth says Oscar Pistorius crumbled under Gerrie Nel’s cross examination by presenting different versions of what happened on February 14. So how’s Oscar doing? “Not well at all.”
Oscar Pistorius read in court the Valentine’s Day card that Reeva Steenkamp gave to him before he shot her to death, containing the message “I think today is a good day to tell you that I love you.”
Gerrie Nel has been hammering away at Pistorius for days now, and talks are that Nel’s grilling may continue for the rest of the day. Pistorius’s strong will and focus may have served him well on the track, but on the witness stand it isn’t doing him any favours. Oscar’s biggest problem at the moment is dolus eventualis.
Sigmund Freud would have a field day analysing the Oscar Pistorius trial, especially comparing Oscar’s attractions to Reeva Steenkamp to his mother. Photos shown of Reeva with her natural hair colour during the trail, bear a striking resemblance to Oscar’s mother.
If you’re watching the Oscar Pistorius trial, you’re witnessing the defendant getting himself into knots on the stand. This one tweet captures exactly how badly the morning has gone for Ozzy P.
Gerrie Nel has not been holding back during his cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius. We have seen a lot of crying, puking and theatrics from Oscar, but was the half a minute silence while he was on the stand last week a sign that he was about to crack?
Before the trail started, Reeva’s family spoke words of forgiveness when pressed about their stance on Oscar Pistorius. While June Steenkamp stoically attends the trial, the rest of the family back in Port Elizabeth are far less composed. Over the weekend, Reeva’s sister told the media in an interview that she thinks Oscar is lying on the stand.
This morning, the dedicated Oscar Pistorius trial channel on DSTV channel 199 featured an interview with one Mark Batchelor, a former Bafana Bafana footballer who suffered an alleged threat by Oscar Pistorius in 2012 that the Blade Runner would “break his legs.” We wrote a story about that incident, which the channel referenced for context [...]
There are so many questions Gerrie Nel can and has been asking Oscar Pistorius, and he’s done a bloody good job at reducing Oscar Pistorius to a dithering wreck. But one question we can’t help wondering, is yet to come up.
While you were keeping up with the footage of the Oscar Pistorius trial, the lovely people over at BrandsEye have been getting their nerd on, collecting all the stats of online conversations that related to the trial. The stats make for an interesting read – check out the breakdown here.
You might have grown accustomed to Oscar Pistorius’s courtroom drama and his behaviour. Some may think that Pistorius’s tears and vomiting may indicate remorse. But experts warn people not to let Pistorius’ anguish fool them.
Yesterday’s courtroom drama lead to a crucial moment in Oscar Pistorius’s trial proceedings. Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel again lambasted Pistorius’ credibility and his inability to take responsibility for his actions.
June Steenkamp has stoically endured every account of the day her daughter died. She has seen images of her daughter’s lifeless body that she will take to her grave. And through all the heartache, she can’t take her eyes off Oscar Pistorius, the man that took her daughter’s life.
An incredibly hard-core scene has just emerged in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius. Gerrie Nel played the video of Pistorius at a shooting range and compared the watermelon to Reeva’s brain. He shouted at Pistorius and told him to look at an image of Reeva.
High drama today in the Oscar Pistorius murder-trial courtroom as Gerrie Nel has submitted a video showing Pistorius at a shooting range where he says “It’s not as soft as brains but fuck it is a zombie stopper.”
This photograph is doing the rounds at the moment. We have received it from a number of people and allegedly shows Pistorius having a good time at Koi restaurant in Sandton last Thursday.
Oscar Pistorius’ ex, Samantha Taylor, made it know yesterday that she didn’t believe a word that was coming out of his mouth as he took to the stand yesterday. This subsequently deleted tweet spread like wildfire..
We have three recordings from today’s trial. The first is Oscar explaining how he and Reeva went to bed that night. The second is what happened once he woke up to a noise. The third is the dramatic ending.
The 2oceansvibe office was wondering if the voice Oscar is using on the stand (click here to listen) is his usual voice, it turns out it isn’t. Click through for an interview he did with Larry King a few months before he killed Reeva Steenkamp.
And he’s bawling his eyes out. “I can’t imagine the pain, the sorrow and the emptiness I’ve caused you,” and “I have terrible nightmares. I wake up in a complete state of terror.”
Oscar won’t testify first. MH370 is now a criminal investigation. Nato blocks Russia. Vodacom slashes rates. Massive eartquake in Chile. Zuckerberg cashed in nicely. More iphone 6 news. Tiger will miss Masters. School shooting April Fools prank.
