    I think he's as guilty as sin, I recon they had a row she ran in the bathroom to escape his temper by locking the door, he lost it completely.
    What a load of old tosh about telling her to lay on the floor, am I the only one who thinks he's as tricky as a box of frogs?

    He killed her,how he justifies his actions is just tosh.Murder or manslaughter will be
    all the trials about,I reckon the former.

    I`ve not really been watching the trial but from what I have seen and heard, I reckon you nailed it in your first post...

    I'm of a view that trials like this should not be televised.

    I'm also of a view that rich people or celebrities seem to end up in long trials given the nature of what transpired. How on earth does it take so long to make a case and defend it given the actual circumstances.

    I get the distinct impression based on what I've seen and heard already that he is as guilty as f.

    I agree with the argument theory and he shot her in a rage and now repents at leisure.

    It's certainly a complex trial and doesn't appear to be as clear cut as people imagined.

    Guilty as sin. He has form, a bad temper and knocked her about previously.

    Looks like he has been taking acting lessons since the murder too.

    But........will he be found guilty?

    I think his story sounds very unlikely, so tend to agree with you

    When relaying how it happened he was all hesitant and sparse with detail. He described the aftermath with remarkable clarity and spoke at great length. Hmmmm.

    And what's with the bin bags?

    This is not about whether he's done it or not.... it's about whether there is enough evidence to secure a conviction, and whether he can get a fair trial. I suspect the answer to both is No. In which case he should be pronounced Not Guilty.

    This is how the legal system works... we know for fact that not all criminals get convicted.

    As for the first question... only Pistorius knows the answer, and no else will ever know for sure - unless he actually did it and decides to confess at some future point of time.

    Exactly right, so much media involvement inevitably means an un fair trial which must be very disappointing for Reeva Steenkamp's family

    That may well be the case and his guilt may be nailed on. All I am pointing out is that at this stage no one, apart from Pistorius, knows the truth. The long list of police mistakes during the collection of evidence is terrible and has not helped.
