Oscar Pistorius, the Olympian without legs who became famous in 2012, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend.

Pistorius -- the paralympian known as Blade Runner -- is accused of shooting 30-year-old Reeva Steenkamp in the hand and head -- allegedly with a 9 mm pistol found at the scene.

Pistorius, 26, had reportedly been dating Steenkamp for a few months. She was a law graduate and an aspiring model.

Sounds like he pointed the gun at her and she put up her hand defensively to shield her face...like we all would. Looks like he's going to jail.

I don't care about the people asking me not to talk about race, because you guys are hypocrites. If this was a black couple or a black man with a whit woman, BOTH Guy and the dead victim would be vilified, especially the white woman for being with a BLACK man... So keep your comments yourself. Sick and tired of hypocrites who are silent when racist things are being said on blacks and hispanics.

As a survivor of a domestic abuse marriage it is difficult to leave someone who can manipulate and alienate you. People are wondering why Reeva didn't leave probably because she was being threatened by him and scared to tell anyone or probably because he made her feel like she was crazy for thinking the things he did or said were okay. It proves domestic abuse happens anywhere and all the time. Rest In Peace. If your relationship doesn't feel right get help and get out of it! i left with 4 kids and we survived

This dude is absolutely delusional. He thought he could beat people in the Olympics and failed miserably. Then he came in 2nd in the paralympics which sparked his depression and anger. Then he thought everyone was out to get him and rob him. Including the security in his complex. He has a camera at his door. He knew it was her. The police had been called to the house multiple times in the previous 2 months for domestic disturbances, including prior that same evening. He is insecure, angry, and self inflating and a nut case. He had a glock, a machine gun, a baseball bat, and a cricket bat in his room. What does anyone want from you dude? You live in a high security neighborhood. Even if you get off in your claim of self defense it still doesn't change the fact you KILLED her. Poor girl, only knew this idiot for 2 months. Everytime I saw his interviews I just got the sleaze vibe from this guy. Know at least I can understand my own personal feelings of hatred towards him. Just because you have no legs doesn't mean you can't still be a jerk off. I know her family wishes she had never met this man. So sad to hear.
