Star South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was awarded bail today after being accused of murdering his girlfriend. The decision by Magistrate Desmond Nair drew cheers from Pistorius’ family and supporters at the Pretoria magistrate’s court, although the athlete appeared unmoved as the decision was read out.
The decision followed a week of dramatic testimony about how the athlete shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his luxury home near Pretoria in the early hours of Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day. Bail or no bail does this really matter right now?
There’s just too much evidence to support that this was a cold blooded and calculated murder. At this point given the forensics report, steroids found, and overall “story” I just have a hard time believing that Pistorius isn’t in the wrong. I mean even Pistorius himself just doesn’t seem like a guy who feels like he made a mistake. I don’t know. We’ll keep you posted.
