The arrogance of Oscar Pistorius

It's beyond belief that Oscar Pistorius has the gall to release a Valentine's Day message he wrote to the woman he murdered exactly 12 months ago.  But what's even worse - he's still calling it an "accident."

Surely he must realize that nobody in their right mind believes his story - that he thought she was an intruder - and you have to wonder if this hollow love note was released to the media in an effort to sway the jury when his trial comes up next month.  He wrote:

No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved - and continues to love Reeva. The pain and the sadness - especially for Reeva's parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow. The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life.  Oscar.

Reeva Steenkamp was found on the bathroom floor with gunshots to her head, elbow and hip.

His trial will begin on March 3 and prosecutors will try to prove him guilty of premeditated murder.
