It's a difficult case, because there's no motive for it to malicious (that know of)Things that make me think wtf are when they say "He didnt mean to kill anyone" etc, ok he's not a muderer as in planned it out; but if I ever had a gun and wanted to use it for example being robbed/family in danger I'd shoot to kill. If I wanted to injure someone I'd grab my 2nd hand piece of shit carbon shaft driver which I thought looked good but is actually shit
I hope he gets the manslaughter charge just because of his previous incidents which letting off fireams in public and then shooting at a bathroom when he doesn't know who's inside but his girlfriend isn't in bed next to him:
Culpable homicide (manslaughter)
No intention to kill. Takes into account disability, but actions negligent and not in keeping with a reasonable person.
Maximum of 15 years, possibly between seven and 10 years
i still get the feeling if he had been black it would of come out differently
I was listening to the judge read out the verdicts this morning. She seemed anything but competent in the way she kept making mistakes and read the pages that were pre prepared. I have great distrust over the single person making the judgements as well.A whole trial with an expert judge watching and listening to everything, and you know better?
Apart from the neighbours testifying to a huge row that very evening, at least that what Sky News reported.It's a difficult case, because there's no motive for it to malicious (that know of).
Under-qualified people put into jobs they should not be in is the new South Africa. Quite regularly visit SAA in Joburg and the guys there tell me how their training school now has two sets of criteria for new engineers. Whites have to score >75% overall to pass, the others >50%. Massive discrimination going on now. With companies having to meet targets of employing blacks in key positions, even knowing that there are not enough well qualified ones to do it. Those that are are naming their own terms and companies have no choice but to accept.Moriath said:I was listening to the judge read out the verdicts this morning.

Your joking?The idea that you think SA is "post apartheid" in anything other than "official" terms is dumb at best.
It is more than this. In the apartheid South Africa, whites got jobs purely based on their skin colour. In a post apartheid world, they were pushed out of cushy government jobs and into private enterprise. It meant that pencil pushing management in Government was no longer a carer option. They had to be study harder, work smarter and generally be superior to their black peers, because the system was now rigged against them. For the native blacks, the route to a cushy job got easier. And people wonder why the social dynamics of the country hasn't changed?? The Economist recently had an article that showed that right after apartheid was abolished, white ownership of private business in Africa was a relatively small part of the whole economy. 15 years on, it was suddenly a major part of it.It's more the other way around. With as hawk wind said more depiscri inaction against whites. However the population is so unbalanced that there are bound to be more black people in town ships and poor settings than white even after all this time of anti apartheid
Dont forget he walked around the bed that she would have been in.'You would think that on hearing suspicious noises and waking the first thing you'd do is reach over to make sure it's not the mrs. Not grab a gun walk around the bed and then shoot through the closed door of a bathroom. WTF would a thief want in a bathroom anyway. Hardly the first port of call for any robbers. Or maybe there has been a spate of loo roll thefts and towels in that area. No logic to this other than he's guilty as fuck and knew she was in there.He went to his Gun, He loaded his gun, he went into his bathroom and then shot multiple times into a small confined area with nowhere to hide at what could have been anyone. He was a proficient marksman or at least gun user so he knew the damage a bullet could do, he knew his home, he knew it was a confined space with nowhere to hide. Taking all that into account i do not see how it cant be murder. Purely on fact he PRESUMED a noise he heard late at night was an intruder?. If that's all you need then i am petty sure we will see many more "accidents" in SA soon
