Oscar Pistorius

I'm NOT Suicidal

EXCLUSIVE

0311_oscar_pistorius
Girlfriend killer Oscar Pistorius is NOT on the verge of taking his own life -- despite multiple reports to the contrary -- this according to a source very close to Oscar.

Various reports hit the Internet this weekend claiming Oscar was suicidal ... after a man named Mike Azzi -- claiming to be one of Oscar's "dearest friends" -- told a British media outlet he feared for the Olympian's mental state, saying "I would say that, just by speaking to him, he is a broken man. I’d go as far as to say he would be on the verge of suicide."

But the source -- who has daily contact with Oscar -- says it's just not true. "Oscar is absolutely not suicidal and any reports out there are just false. Oscar is grieving like anyone would be ... but he is not suicidal."

The source also says Mike and Oscar were business acquaintances, not friends -- Mike trained Oscar's horses ... that's it, and he's in no position to know Oscar's mental state.

He killed that girl why?? Because she commented about him not being able to get it up? He should go ahead and kill himself.

Well, rich people get anything they want, even in other countries.
I heard on the news this morning he wants to be able to leave the country, but he is not a flight risk. Huh, What?
Leaving the country is taking flight.
He shoved his way into the Olympics and forced us to watch him lose and then he has to ask for the handicap cell when sent to jail? If you can be in the regular Olympics, you don't need no stinkin handicap cell.

Well of course he's not suicidal. If he was suicidal then he would have shot himself after he murdered his girlfriend.

Pointless story. The suicidal thing seems like a ploy for sympathy and that probably didn't go over well.

Look TMZ, I could see you pushing the story at first, Olympic Hero Offs Girlfriend in Blaze of Bullets!!!. But the story is pretty played out and we don't really care until they sentence this idiot.
.
I don't really care that he had to sell some of his horses, or that he wants to commit suicide. Enough of this, find a story we still care about.

Maybe he needs to consider becoming suicidal. This prick should be flogged to death publicly with his own carbon prosthetics. That this guy walked free on bail is a joke.
