Pistorius fired without warning

Published 25/02/2013

Whether the police version of events adds up, or not, is irrelevant. We can simply go on what Oscar Pistorius says (News, February 21).

He heard somebody moving in the bathroom and, without issuing a challenge, or a warning shot, he fired at them.

Who the victim was has no bearing on this case: whether it was a perceived burglar, or his girlfriend, is irrelevant.

Given the well-known effects on the human body of bullets fired from a gun, how can this be painted as anything other than murder?
