New details emerge in
Pistorius murder case

CBS News, by Kelly Cobiella

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/17/2013 9:51:44 PM

London - CBS News has learned police believe Reeva Steenkamp, the girlfriend of Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius, was in her nightgown in the bedroom when she was first shot. She slept in the same bed as Pistorius, police said. She then ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside, where she was shot in the head, hand and arm. Pistorius reportedly broke through the bathroom door and carried his dying girlfriend down the stairs. Oscar Pistorius, famous for overcoming odds as a double-amputee to compete in the Olympics, was charged Thursday with murdering his girlfriend.

Comments:
First there was Tiger, Then, Lance. Now this athletic "hero" with his choice of "hotties." Except, it seems Pistorius may have gone a little too far and killed his. Yesterday, we heard that she was shot four times through a bathroom door, while sitting on a sink. This is much more devastating to Pistorius and his defense. Either way, what a long fall from grace.

The details seem more and more convincing that this was a murder, but to me, not premeditated. If everything I have read is factual, The two had been in the house for hours, had been arguing, at least she was in bedclothes, he may or may not have clubbed her, and she went into the bathroom where she was shot through the door multiple times. He
will have to come up with quite a story to be innocent of this mayhem. Some of the data I have read is not consistent so its hard to be totally accurate, but surely the authorities there are on top of things.

This sounds to me like a simple case of a control freak losing his sense of control over his girlfriend.I doubt it was premeditated,he just lost it.

OP first there was OJ Simpson. So many others, like Mike Tyson and let´s not forget the likes of Steve McNair. The list goes on and on.

Until we can keep guns from those with physical handicaps, we conservatives are going to be considered unreasonable and nothing more than run of the mill ´gun nuts´.

Video corresponds with the text here -- no additional insight there.

The details reveal that Steenkamp "was in her nightgown in the bedroom when she was first shot . . . then ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside, where she was shot in the head, hand and arm."

Notably missing from those details: Were those follow-up shots fired through the bathroom door? If not, then Pistorius´ claim (that he thought he was shooting an intruder) becomes surpassingly implausible.

But that´s really stretching the principle of presumed innocence... I would not believe any suggestion that after being shot the first time Steenkamp didn´t shout or even mumble any protest (e.g. "It´s me, you idiot!" or even just "Don´t shoot!") that he would recognize in a darkened room as her voice. Can´t imagine any other aspects to this that offer Oscar any possibility of injecting plausible doubt.

So, I hate to admit, I´m with #1 on this. Does RSA have capital punishment? Do they use hanging, firing squad, ´old sparky´, or maybe crocodile cage fight?

Tiger, Lance!

Disgusting to include these two men as murderous scum. They killed NO ONE.

Only other murderer in recent memory is OJ Simpson.

Most likely this murderer will also be acquitted.

What is it with successful sports figures? Did they start out life with enormous egos? The press, as is their custom, overdoes it by making them even bigger than life. Pretty soon they believe they are "bigger than life" and the peon girlfriends/masses better see them that way or else.

So far, the evidence discussed / released by the police looks pretty bad for him. What is usually the case is that there is a whole lot more evidence than is made public. In addition, "Trial by Media" doesn´t do either side any good. The only ones who really know what happened in that house are him, her and God. Unfortunately for all the speculators here, that is probably how it will stay.

Obama signs Ted Cruz bill into law,

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement. "Nevertheless, as President [George H.W.] Bush also observed,

Can This Marriage Be Saved?

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces. Iranian state television quoted Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as saying that Iran has

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
