Oscar Pistorius
' GF Reeva Steenkamp was supposed to give a speech on the hardships of abusive relationships on Feb. 14th -- the same day she was shot dead in her boyfriend's home.

Reeva was set to speak to a group of teenagers at Sandown High School in South Africa ... to talk about her own experience suffered at the hands of a previous boyfriend -- not Oscar -- this according to the Daily Telegraph.

In the notes for her speech, the former model reportedly urged the school kids to "be brave, always see the positive" and "make your voice heard."

The Olympian is now charged with her murder.

things aren't looking good for oscar. security cameras have her coming to his house at 8pm on wednesday night; neighbors heard arguing that night at his place. so he couldn't have thought she was an intruder. looks like he let his temper get the best of him.

I thought he was a stand-up guy! His motives have us all stumped! He doesn't have a leg to stand on in court! He better put his best foot forward! He had the world at his feet! He was hopping mad at being arrested!

Bitter irony here. You'd think a chick that hot would have more self-esteem than be with Pistorius. But he wasn't half the man her old boyfriend was.

She never had a chance...its not like she could kick him in the shin or stomp on his foot to make her getaway.

So she was previously involved in an abusive relationship? It's well-known that women who leave one abusive man will often end up with another one. Now I'm learning that this guy had a bad temper and police had been called to his house not just once, but several times, for so-called "domestic incidents" (translation: he was violent and abusive). I think she was cowering behind the bathroom door and he just lost it and shot her.

Abuse speeches on the day of love, Valentine's?
Is that like Obama using the day of celebrating fathers, Father's Day, to publicly insult fathers and call them deadbeats?
(while refusing to sue Mother's Day to publicly insult mothers and call them deadbeats?)

Surprised at so many hateful comments esp the ones degrading him for not having legs. We do not have all the evidence. We do not know if he awoke to something at 4am and crawled to the bathroom and shot thru the door. I am just pleading for everyone to calm down and let the evidence come out so if you want to judge the man use the facts instead of making cruel comments.

I think it's disgusting how this man is being tried by the press before he has his actual trial. All of these stories about him having a past with guns, arguments with his girlfriend, and now this story about how he was to give a speech about abuse does not make this man guilty. He lives in South Africa, where it's smart to own guns. In one piece I read about his "gun enthusiasm" he was clearly skittish about intruders. There have been reports about them having loud arguments, but that doesn't mean he abused her. I'm not saying he's clearly innocent, I just don't think we should assume he's guilty based on cir***stantial evidence. Although, based on the nature of this case, he's probably up ****s creek unless forensics can somehow prove that this was accidental. Otherwise it's just based on his word.
