Reeva steenkamp how long were they dating

opinion

Excitingly, this long-mulled-over question has at last been resolved. This message was prescient, seeing as, on 14 FebruaryPistorius was to pump her full of bullets. And thus, even though Pistorius killed Steenkamp, he did not murder her, according to the judge. Instead, she convicted him of culpable homicide.

I have been in relationships. Some of them were dynamic and some unpredictable. Being scared of someone is not normal. Pistorius, however, has a different approach to relationships. Judge Masipa is an extraordinary person.

Indeed, part of the fascination in this case comes from the stories behind the two main players: As my colleague David Smith wrote this weekthe court provided a fascinating microcosm of how much South Africa has changed in the past few decades, with a black Zulu judge deciding the fate of a wealthy white Afrikaner. Pistorius's tale is, of course, well known.

Reeva 'met her ex-boyfriend just...

Sixty-six years old, she is the second black woman in South Africa to attain the position of judge, and she did so by going to night school for 10 years while holding down a day job and raising two children.

She is no pushover when it comes to the abuse of women. She once sentenced a former prison officer to life imprisonment after he shot and killed his wife in an argument. So admiration for Masipa should not stop us from asking questions.

Questions such as, how can a man pump four bullets into a bathroom door and be acquitted of intention to kill? And how can a judge as smart as Masipa think that Pistorius's immediate horror at what he'd done is proof that he didn't mean to kill, if not Steenkamp then at least somebody?

These are some of the factors that convinced the judge not to convict him of premeditated murder which was never Reeva steenkamp how long were they dating to happen anyway or, much more surprisingly, dolus eventualis, a lesser charge of murder.

We know what it takes for people to believe that a woman has been abused by a famous, powerful man: The earlier video of him dragging her unconscious out of the lift was, apparently, not good enough: Rice, like Pistorius, was simply too lucrative for the sporting industry to lose just because of a pesky domestic-abuse charge. What's a little culpable homicide between colleagues?

Emotional damage, yes, but not physical.
