Oscar Pistorius
is free ... the Olympic sprinter accused of murdering his girlfriend was just released from a South African prison after posting bail.

Pistorius -- who's charged with murdering GF Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day -- was granted bail in exchange for 1,000,000 rand (or $113,000).

He has spent the last 8 days behind bars.

The Chief Magistrate granted Pistorius bail on the condition he turn over his passport and surrender any guns he owns. Pistorius also can't leave the district of Pretoria without the permission of his probation officer. He is also banned from drinking and doing drugs.

He's due back in court on June 4.

Gee    

no one has mentioned whether the bathroom had a window. If it didn't, how did an intruder get in, and if it did, where did that a-hole think she was.
Let him commit suicide and save the country some money.

Anybody heard any more about a bloody cricket bat found at the scene? Is it true? If so, are we supposed to believe he shot 4+ times through the bathroom door without knowing where his girlfriend in the house was he'll probably say he keeps his bats in the bathroom and she fell on it.

I'm way behind in this story... but if he shot at the door on his stumps ... then how did he balance and hold the gun? Can he walk on them? Or does he have to crawl to go get his artificial legs?

This guy is an Evil Lying Psycho and almost as bad as him is his sick family and supporters. And the little crybaby in court was pathetic. What sort of person would hire a PR person hours after shooting a girl 4 times and killing her? A self entitled narcistic s***bag is who. This guy is truly a coward. The judge is an idiot and his supporters are retards.

I wonder if she went in the bathroom, sat on the toilet with the lid down, to make a call/text or take a call/text on her cell phone (her panties were on I heard). Wonder what her phone records show.

Q: If he is sentenced and put in a damp prison cell, will his "blade" feet rust?

Enquiring minds. I want to know!
