    Jump to conclusions much?
    Arrested and charged....is not the same as proven guilty....and there is always more to the story than what is printed in the news.

    And given the number of 'news' outlets that we have in today's world ... the competition for one to be more sensational than the next.

    Premeditated murder. No jumping to conclusions needed.

    An excellent column on this that was published today in the South African Press

    Pierre De VosAnother woman is dead today. She is one of the many women who die every day at the hands of their spouses or partners. Her name is Reeva Steenkamp. The only shocking thing about her death is that most of us only know her name because she was allegedly shot and killed by her famous boyfriend, Oscar Pistorius. As is often the case when allegations are made about spousal abuse or killing, many people have jumped to Pistorius’s defence and expressed sympathy for him. But how could they possibly know whether he is guilty or innocent?


    Pierre De VosAs I write this, I have no idea what happened in the early hours of Thursday morning in the house of Oscar Pistorius. The facts might eventually show that he is guilty of murder or culpable homicide. The facts might show that he is innocent. All we know is that a woman is dead and that Pistorius is alleged to have caused her death.

    An excellent article. Pierre De Vos is a constitutional law expert in Cape Town.

    So please can we hold off until a court decides if he is guilty or innocent...
