Oscar Pistorius not guilty of murder





Reeva Steenkamp's parents are shattered with the "not guilty of murder" verdict of Oscar Pistorius. When June and Barry Steenkamp were interviewed by NBC, June said "I don't feel that this is the right verdict...you know....they believe his story and I don't believe his story - that's the difference."

"I really don't care what happens to Oscar" she said "it's not going to change anything because my daughter is never coming back but he's still living and breathing, and she's gone forever."






A stroke almost killed Barry Steenkamp after his daughter was murdered and he said there was disbelief from everyone about Judge Thokozile Masipa's decision. "There is still something missing" he said. "I think there was more to the whole story, you know....coming up to the actual shooting, the killing."

And judging by the reaction on social media, the whole world agrees with them.






I read somewhere this morning that in time, this unassuming little black lady's decision will be proved right, and history will treat her well.  

She may weather the storm as sentencing is still to come, but so far, her decision in finding Pistorius "not guilty" of murder, is going down like a lead balloon.
