    Anyone else fed up with the Pistorius trial, Sky News seems obsessed by it?

    The British Judicial system is not perfect but the South African system looks a farce, he was found guilty of unlawfulness, why has it taken weeks to sentence him?!

     

    Sick of hearing about it now. It's been dragged out for so long that I've gone beyond caring. I really do not understand why there was such a gap between the verdict and sentencing, and now they're having a squabble about what the sentence should be!

    I decided that age ago - 10 years seems about right. perhaps with another 5 added on for his snivelling.

    I'm surprised we haven't seen more of the Shrien Dewani trial considering it concerns a British citizen.

    I'm pleased. :) I thought the original verdict (and pointedly the judge) stank. Whether this means another round of appeals though?

    Good stuff, was a ridiculous verdict on the first place. Although a minimum 15 year sentence will probably mean 3 years then, he was only in jail for 1 year after being sentenced to 5...

    Good, it was  a complete error of law.

    I'm guessing it will take another eternity to decide his sentence?

    And so begins another drawn out, protracted farce.

    Even if you failed to prove the intent to kill as per a charge of murder , anyone who deliberately discharges a firearm through a closed door is behaving in a reckless manner , and should be convicted of manslaughter . He should do a minimum of 10 years imo
