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.

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.

New York - Naveed Shinwari hasn’t seen his wife in 26 months. He suspects it’s because he refused to become an informant for the FBI. (Snip) Filed on Tuesday night in the US district court for the southern district of New York, the case accuses the US attorney general, Eric Holder, the FBI director, James Comey, the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson, and two dozen FBI agents of creating an atmosphere in which Muslims who are not accused of wrongdoing are forbidden from flying, apparently as leverage to get them snitching on their communities. Their lawsuit seeks not only the plaintiffs’ removal from the no-fly list but also

Washington - The United States has decided to lift its hold on the delivery of 10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt imposed last year after the military´s ouster of President Mohamed Mursi and an ensuing crackdown against protesters, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed his Egyptian counterpart, Colonel General Sedki Sobhi, of the decision in a call, saying the helicopters would support Egypt´s counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said.

Washington - US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a first-hand look at a life-size robot that resembles Hollywood´s "Terminator," the latest experiment by the Pentagon´s hi-tech researchers. But unlike the cinematic version, the hulking Atlas robot is designed not as a warrior but as a humanitarian machine that would rescue victims in the rubble of a natural disaster, officials said on Tuesday. The 6-foot-2-inch (187 centimeters) Atlas is one of the entrants in a contest designed to produce a man-like life-saver machine, the brainchild of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Manama - A Bahraini court has sentenced 12 men to life in prison for spying, receiving training from Iran´s Revolutionary Guard and processing weapons and explosives, a defence lawyer and rights activist said on Tuesday. Bahrain accuses Shi´ite power Iran of fuelling unrest in the country since a 2011 uprising led by the Shi´ite Muslim community demanding reforms and more share in running the kingdom ruled by the Sunni Muslim al-Khalifa dynasty. Tehran denies the accusation, but defends the cause of Bahrain´s Shi´ite opposition. Attorney Fatima al-Adraj said the court convicted the men on Sunday, and sentenced two others to

Washington - The administration of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has admitted to conducting a political reshuffle within the atomic energy agency in an effort to mute officials opposed to negotiations with the West over the country’s nuclear program. In a statement issued on Monday, a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said that “a limited number of people were concerned, and they were neither scientists nor were they fired.” The statement was made after rumors of widespread dismissals proliferated on local websites last week. Rouhani and his nuclear negotiators are under intense pressure from Islamic hardliners

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s fierce defense of the affirmative action efforts such as the ones that helped move her from a Bronx housing project to the upper echelons of American law found renewed voice Tuesday in an impassioned dissent that accused colleagues of trying to “wish away” racial inequality — and drew a tart response from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In her most personal moment in 41 /2 years on the court, Sotomayor read part of her dissent from the bench to emphasize her disagreement with six colleagues who upheld Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning the consideration of race in public university admissions.

General Motors moved on Tuesday to prevent future safety lapses by expanding its oversight of problematic vehicles even as the automaker continued to take an aggressive legal posture in dealing with its past missteps. (Snip) The legal filing, which was made late Monday in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, asked the judge who approved the company’s 2009 restructuring agreement to explicitly enforce a provision that shielded the “new” company from liability for incidents that took place before July 10, 2009, the day the agreement went into effect. Most of the cars in the recall were manufactured before

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
