Oscar Pistorius

breaking news

When Oscar Pistorius gunned down girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, she began screaming -- presumably in pain and horror -- and he continued shooting ... this according to a prosecution witness. 

As the bail hearing resumed Wednesday, prosecutors revealed a statement from a witness who claims he heard gunshots, went to his balcony and saw the light was on. He then heard a female screaming two or three times ... then more gunshots.

If true ... it's devastating for Pistorius, who claims the room was pitch black when he began firing, never realizing he was shooting at his girlfriend. If the lights were on and he heard Steenkamp's screams but kept on shooting -- it blows his intruder defense sky high.

Prosecutors also say they have a witness who says there was "non-stop talking like fighting" between 2 and 3 AM ... shortly before the shooting. Pistorius claims there was no argument before the killing.

And there's this ... the first officer to arrive at the scene says when he got there, a lawyer and Pistorius' brother were already present.

An officer testified the bullets were "fired down," which contradicts Pistorius' story that he was not wearing his prosthetic legs when he began shooting.

One thing in Pistorius' favor -- the chief investigating officer was grilled like a cheeseburger on cross-examination and he reportedly did not do a very good job.

Bastard should be hung by his unmentionables, tortured and then should die the way that she did, in devistating pain and horror!!! I hope those screams haunt him in his dreams and waking life and that he never be free from them ever! May he get what he deserves!

So sad for her the victim. I hope for her sake and her loved ones, he gets thrown in jail. His lies make me sick. Lets not forget the life that he took. It's beyond doubt and any attempts to state otherwise are just making him look worse. His story is so incredible, its ridiculous!

Hmm. So by his own admission, if we are to take Oscar's story for truth..."It was too dark to see, therefore I had no idea Reeva wasn't in bed. But at the same time (AMAZINGLY!), I was certain Reeva was in bed (even though it was too dark to see). I then felt completely justified in pumping four bullets through a locked toilet door."

Seriously? Lock this dude up. Even if this story is true, he's a danger to everyone around him.

Wow, how nice to have trials so FAST there!
If we could only have that privilege here in the USA!
Instead of torchering families having to wait years.
Even in custody, contempt, divorce you have to wait months/ years=$$$$

Guilty as sin.

Dude needs a new lawyer. His excuse is totally weak.

All this is so sad. I'm hoping against logic that something comes out that shows he didn't do it, but like I said logic. It seems like he's guilty. It breaks my heart too because what he did at the Olympics inspired so many people that I know and even myself. He overcame so much to run in that race and he did decently too against able-bodied men. And here he goes f*cking it all up. He's just another OJ Simpson. Dammit Pistorius!

This guy can hobble around on his stumps in the dark, find the balcony, find the fan, close the door and the blind, find the bed under the gun, put on his legs, and aim really well, How amazing. Too bad the only thing he can't do in the dark is figure out where his girlfriend is. What a crock of s**t.

How much was she insured for? Does he also believe in Santa?

Why does he want to be free on bail---their daughter is still dead, not freely enjoying her young life. R.I.P.

It is plain to see that Oscar is innocent. What is wrong with some people?

I also read today that the person who said they heard fighting and screaming from inside the house was 600 yards away! It was also reported that steroids were found in the house but the lead investigator now says they were supplements. I think we all need to step back and wait for the truth to come out. Prayers for the young lady and her family.

His story seems very plausable to me. I would like to know if she was wearing underwear or not...if she was, then perhaps she was hiding in the bathroom making his story questionable, if not, then perhaps she was using the toilet and he was mistaken. Btw, looking at the diagrams of his bathroom, it would be pretty hard to miss anyone in the tiny toilet room, even in the dark
