Oscar Pistorius gets five years for killing Reeva Steenkamp *
JAIL NO GOOD O.Oscar Pistorius' jaile: Rife with AIDS, gangsters, stabbings and gang rape, Oscar Pistorius’s brutal new home - Kgosi Mampuru II prison – Indeed, the jail, where the pampered athlete is today beginning a five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, , is one of the most feared in South Africa. The concrete fortress in Pretoria, which became notorious as the main hanging site during the Apartheid era, houses 7,000 of the country’s most violent criminals. The vast majority of inmates are black and from impoverished backgrounds – and, unlike Pistorius, who relies on two prosthetic legs, very few are disabled. So, what exactly can Pistorius, a rich white man who became one of the wealthiest sports stars on earth following a privileged childhood, expect? MONEY TALKS: However, report says he is to be held in a specially prepared part of securely-guarded prison section with only six cells. If so, his only neighbour would be Czech fugitive Radovan Krejčíř.
My letter published in today's London Evening Standard... 'Yesterday in South Africa a man was sentenced by a Judge to serve a sentence that is predicted to amount to around 10 months in prison followed by Community Service. Was his crime a minor burglary or persistent shop-lifting? Nope. He killed a woman. Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius on Valentine's Day in 2013. Statistically speaking, Steenkamp was one of three women killed by an intimate partner on Valentine's Day in the country. According to a report (by Lydia Smith , International Business Times Sept 11 2014) the day after Reeva Steenkamp was killed, she was due to wear black in a "Black Friday" protest against South Africa's high number of rapes. The event was spurred by the gang rape and murder of a 17-year-old girl, who managed to identify her attacker, her ex-boyfriend, shortly before she died. In South Africa, a woman is killed by domestic violence on average every eight hours. The rate of women killed in South ...
There have been many appalling aspects to this Reeva Steenkamp/Oscar Pistorius tragedy... ...The fact that beauty is the antithesis of death; that a violent death is incomprehensible to normal, sensate people; that no amount of justice, or sorrow, or remorse, can rever...
PRETORIA, South Africa - Oscar Pistorius was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for killing Reeva Steenkamp by a South African judge who cited the "gross negligence" the runner showed when he shot his girlfriend multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home.
The parents of Reeva Steenkamp have told how they do not believe Oscar Pistorius's account of the night he shot their daughter dead but accept the judge's decision to clear him of her murder.
BREAKING NEWS!!! Olympian and great man Oscar Pistorius is sentenced to 5 years in prison as a result of brutally murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. I can sleep well at night knowing that a murdered is walking free at night.
While I'm on the media naming and shaming bandwagon today, I hope that Masipa and her assessors take a day to review the appallingly misleading and out-and-out false reporting of the Oscar Pistorius case from start to (please!) finish. Since it's what created the societal need for retribution in lieu of ubuntu and fed the misconception that Oscar murdered Reeva and knew she was behind the door, it's worth taking time before she ever again publicly embraces public opinion as a determinant. Or praises Gerrie Nel. Or absolves the NPA and SAPS and the media.
He is an amazing Prosecutor and did a wonderful job with Oscar Pistorius, he saw right thru him from day one and gave him exactly what he deserved. Unfortunately in my opinion the Justice system failed him. He is just man and is quite prepared to put the blame where it belongs, he is strong and believes in what he is doing. Just a great pity Oscar did not get what he deserves. ( and that was not due to the lack of trying. If it was me I would appeal the sentence, but then it won't help because all the relevant people have already been paid off. Put the Justice back into this society Gerry!!! they need people like you.
Oscar Pistorius gets 5 years but life w/o parole isn't good enough for Jodi Arias. Mind boggling.

With today's news regarding Oscar de la Renta and Oscar Pistorius, Sesame Street authorities have issued a Code Red for Oscar the Grouch.
Bar. Corner considers the sentence of 5 years imprisonment handed down to Oscar Pistorius mild looking at the crime he committed but against the backdrop of the torture he faced from the paparazzi all through the trial coupled with his physical disability, My Lady, Judge Thokozile Masipa would have return a non custodian sentence abeit it would have also sent a wrong signal to the society and the justice to the Reeva Steenkamp's family would have been betrayed by the very law that protects the society from killers. Indeed, the celebrity status of Oscar complicated the case for the Judge and here we are theorizing the best method to serve the three ways justice system. What a World!

Oscar Trial: from Paralympian to prisoner Pretoria – Oscar Pistorius will on Tuesday begin serving the five-year prison sentence he has been given for shooting model Reeva Steenkamp. Before noon on Tuesday he became an inmate under the Department of Correctional Services, and was no longer a global sporting icon with prospects of immediately resuming his athletic career. Criminal law expert Ulrich Roux confirmed that this effectively means that Pistorius could be released within 10 months, after which time he would serve the remainder of his sentence under correctional supervision or house arrest. There were few shows of emotion in the North Gauteng High Court room where cameras captured the solemn faces of Steenkamp’s parents June and Barry, the Pistorius family and Pistorius himself. A short while later Pistorius was led away by officials so that he could be transferred to a correctional facility – widely reported to be the Kgosi Mampuru Prison in Pretoria, where he will be accommodated in the *** ...

Oscar Pistorius trial: Athletes sole aim was to kill, court told - Sydney Morning Herald
Xolile Mgeni was denied medical parole because the Correctional Facility he was held at had the best medical facilities than what he could have had outside prison. He died in prison today. Oscar Pistorius can't be sent to jail, for South African Correctional Services has no facilities for a prisoner with no legs. This was argued in court last week. Facilities are best for a black prisoner with a brain tumor but there are no facilities, countrywide, for a white prisoner with no legs...
Xolile Mngeni may your soul rest in peace. Thou may not speak ill of the dead as I am tempted to go into reasons why ended up in jail. The point is that is done and dusted. You received punishment harsh or not. I shall let that to rest. I hope your death shall not be in vain. I sincerely hope that your death is timed well such that it exposes the inequality that is appalling within the Justice System in our own land. I hope your death does raise conscious in the Justice System that the poor are not afforded same opportunities. It is sad that you were not afforded the opportunity to be with your family at the time when you needed them most. No matter how conditions were at home. Speak of restoration and Ubuntu in the Justice System. Mercy is only for rich people, and that defies the whole purpose of the concept of Ubuntu and mercy, if class and race is the determining factor in this case. I still maintain that Judges then were not and today are not independent. How do you put someone in prison who ...

Oscar Pistorius has been making monthly payments of $530 (6,000 Rand) a month to the Steenkamp family, a month after their daughter's death.
Meet Black Singles 300x250
C&C Daily News Bit: Analysis: Andrew Harding, BBC News, Pretoria What constitutes "blood money?" That question surfaced in court when it was revealed that Oscar Pistorius has been making monthly payments to Reeva Steenkamp's parents. The couple's lawyer confirmed that he had approached the Pistoriuses some 18 months ago, asking for support because Barry and June Steenkamp were broke. It seems their daughter had been supporting them prior to her death. But earlier in court, Prosecutor Gerrie Nel scathingly described a separate lump-sum offer of 375,000 rand, made by the athlete as "blood money". So what is the different between refusing a lump sum and accepting a monthly payment - in moral terms? Clearly issues of need, timing, emotion, and the ebb and flow of the trial process itself must come into play. But in the meantime the Steenkamps have now announced that they will not be pursuing any civil case against the man who killed their daughter, and will repay "every cent" of the money Pistorius has alread ...
