Oscar Pistorius Did Not Intentionally Kill Girlfriend , Judge Rules

http://abcnews.go.com/International/...ry?id=25422654


Oscar Pistorius did not intentionally kill his girlfriend in a 2013 shooting, a South African judge ruled, but the former Olympian could still be convicted of culpable homicide and other charges in verdict proceedings that resume Friday.

Pistorius broke down into sobs as Judge Thokozile Masipa found the athlete not guilty of murder today.

Masipa called Pistorius a “very poor witness” during the murder trial and found he was at times vague and avoided answering some of the prosecution's questions. Despite that, she says this does not necessarily indicate his guilt.

A verdict on the charge of culpable homicide, similar to manslaughter in the United States, still remains. Pistorius also faces two counts of discharging a gun in a public area, as well as illegal possession of ammunition.

If he is found guilty of murder without premeditation, or culpable homicide, he could receive a 15-year sentence as a first time offender. Mitigating factors, such as his emotional state, anxiety levels and disability could result in a lesser sentence.

Steenkamp was killed on Valentine’s Day 2013 when Pistorius fired four shots through a bathroom door in the middle of the night, saying her mistook his live-in girlfriend for an intruder. Pistorius testified that the shooting was a horrible accident. At trial, there was testimony from neighbors that they heard a loud argument coming from the apartment around the time of the shooting.

The judge is offering her insight and analysis on the evidence given by dozens of witnesses in the case. The verdict on Steenkamp’s shooting death will conclude Friday.

As Masipa began reading her ruling, Pistorius appeared tense and emotional. He was later seen crying.

Earlier, he squeezed through the media throng awaiting outside the courtroom.

The trial has spanned five months, prolonged by several interruptions including a month-long break so the paralympian sprinter could be examined by mental health experts.

Pistorius -- known as “Blade Runner” for his prosthetic legs -- served as an international inspiration after performing in the London 2012 Olympics.

Masipa, along with two assistants, are tasked with determining whether Pistorius is guilty or innocent. South Africa does not use jury trials.

TL;DR: Some ignorant judge took pity on a murdering asshole because he has no legs.

Dangerously unstable narcissist that could easily kill again...with equally lame excuses.

I don't know what happened other than he killed her. None of us know if it was premeditated or not. Also, he's still stands trial for manslaughter.

I watched as much of the live feed as I could manage. I took her point on that as the prosecution did not sufficiently resolve reasonable doubt against Pistorius' version of events. That's a fair legal problem.

We have the luxury of being emotional, a judge does not. The fucker killed her, for sure, but the judge is looking at the "mathematics" of the case, legally-speaking, and not the emotions.

I hope he at least does a dime. And I hope they ban him from ever owning or shooting a gun again. Fucking simp needs anger-management therapy -AND- a proper ass-kicking. The court can provide the former and society, I'm sure, will provide the latter.

May I introduce you to South Africa's new "Casey Anthony".

The man heard noise in his bathroom And he claims he thought it was a intruder. So instead of checking on his girlfriend, or calling police. Or even arming himself and calling out to the person in the bathroom to check who it is. He just fired several times through the door. You can't possibly think he forgot his girlfriend was there? He later lied about it and stated he doesn't know why the gun went off because his finger wasn't on the trigger. And blamed police for moving things in his house because his story didn't add up to the placement of items.
This guy is a cold blooded killer. I hope that worthless judge gives him the max.
I think they were fighting and she went into the bathroom and locked the door. And he killed her.
