Date set for Oscar judgment

Pretoria - The judge in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius says she will give a verdict on 11 September.

Judge Thokozile Masipa made the announcement on Friday after the prosecution and the defence ended final arguments in the murder case against the double-amputee, who shot dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year.

Pistorius said he mistakenly shot Steenkamp, thinking there was intruder in his home. The prosecution alleges the Olympic runner intentionally killed her after an argument.

Oscar is guilty as sin. However, he has a lot going for him namely his disability and his unstable upbringing. The biggest mistake was to allow him to be assessed on an out patient basis. I honestly believe he is a psychopath and lacks empathy. Everything about his past behaviour leads to that. Oscar would sell his own soul to save his skin, which he has done in this matter. I hope that he is removed from society because he is a danger. He cannot be rehabilitated.

Guess where Oscar will be on the night of 12 September 2014? Either in a nightclub fighting and shooting or in a cell! Any takers?
