      Tomorrow (September 11th) is the day Oscar Pistorious will be sentenced for the killing of Reeva Steenkamp. I myself personally feel that Oscar is guilty, it sounds harsh and I know that many will tell me innocent until proven guilty but nothing really does add up if you ask me about what is said to have happened that night.

      What are your thoughts on the Oscar Pistorious verdict?

      Seems he got 5 years for the killing of Reeva Steenkamp which I personally do not feel is enough. Knowing he will do less than that as well is just shocking.

      Any thoughts on the verdict and what he was sentenced to? Was it enough?

      The word is he may only spend 10 months actually in prison.

      Heard that myself not too long after I replied to this thread. It seems crazy that someone can do something like this despite him being in a situation like that and seem to just get away with it so to speak. I still believe now he didn't have any solid reason to shoot through that door but I guess we will never honestly know that.

      I see where you are coming from. I also believe that for this he should have got life but I guess they didn't see it like that which is pretty poor in my eyes!

      I agree, regardless of whether or not he was scared in the situation he was in anyone in their right mind would never shoot through a door to a room which is very small, maybe try and frighten them but never do exactly what he did.

      I heard about this. I doubt he'll spend the full 5 years in jail or even get close. It seems anymore these days that anyone with any amount of fame, that they won't be held responsible for their actions. Even if he killed her by accident, he should have gotten more than 10 months in prison. I know it probably sounds like I'm being a little harsh, but I grew up knowing that my parents were going to hold me responsible for the things I've done or didn't do. It's called accountability and it seems like celebrities have never heard of the word.

      I agree, I was brought up exactly the same to be honest and was always made to realise that what I had done was wrong. celebrities get let off the hook too easily nowadays meaning they are always willing to try and get away with more at a later date. It's a shame other people don't see that.

      It just boggles my mind when celebrities are able to get away with things or get off with just a slap on the wrist. I just don't get it but then I wasn't raised that way so I don't live my life that way. I'm just thankful to have had the upbringing that I got.
