      Oscar Pistorious has been jailed for 6 years today for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

      It is being said that Pistorious must serve at least half of his 6 year term before he will be eligible for parole.

      Prosecution could and may appeal against the sentence for being too lenient.

      Do you feel the sentence of 6 years is too lenient?

      Wonder if the sentence would have been so lenient if he wasn't a sports celebrity.

      Does make you wonder. They believe he is guilty yet he gets far less than any average person would committing the same crime which makes no sense to me and I believe many are more than likely thinking the same thing and that is it's because he is a celebrity.

      Celebrity or not if you commit a crime you should do the time like everyone else.
