This Show Trial exposes the privileged lifestyle of a celebrity — his wealth, a beautiful woman, a big house, his flaws and violence and it also shows us the contrast between the life in a wealthy gated community and the poverty in South Africa’s townships. We see the fear of the poor among the rich, fear of crime, racial tension, violence against women, gun violence, the privileges of a wealthy white defendant and the priorities of the news media delivering sensationalism and stirring the masses for profit.
South Africa's history making Golden Boy, Champion, regardless of his trial outcome, will forever be ruined, he's essentially South Africa's O.J. Simpson.
Update: September 12th 2014 - Oscar Pistorious is found Guilty of culpable homicide and one count of reckless and negligent handling of a firearm.
Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa's decision indicates that she believes the main point of his defense that Pistorious thought he was firing at an intruder, rather than at his girlfriend when he opened fire.
Justice was not served...ask yourself this. If an ordinary unknown man had done what Pistorious has done, would they have been acquitted? Would they have been allowed to drag out their case for more than a year and a half? Would they have been granted so many delays? Would they have been freed on bail? Would they have to wait a month after the verdict to hear their sentence?
