Sorry

Dear Oscar.

I’m from The United Kingdom and both my Mother and I have watched the trial and TVs interview.

Tragically a life was lost and the pain of both families including you is apparent. Something must be done to avert this violence of a country that I would love to visit one day.

My Father used to travel to Cape Town, Joburg including Stellenbosch in the late 70’s for business.
He was told by staff of his complex never to go on the balcony of his apartment at night through threat of being attacked.
That memory has been with me ever since.

My Grandfather lost both his Legs at a late age in his life and became very withdrawn and reliant on the family to assist him.

I believe you are part of the causality of crime that puts us both in fear of our welfare and loved ones around us.

We have strict Gun Laws in The UK and should be enforced worldwide.
I do not wish you any more punishment as I believe you are part of a society that is built on fear and aggression.

You have shown your remorse and both your family and Reevas family are paying the cost. I hope the court comes to a sensible position and hope you will be strong enough to get through.
We feel so sorry for both parties.
I don’t think you’re a bad person but someone who tried to do well in life with your disabilities.

Please take care and I will pray for both you and Reeva.

Huge Turnaround

I have just watched Oscar’s interview in New Zealand and I have made a huge turnaround. I am 100% convinced now of his innocence. My heart goes out to him and his family. What a well spoken honest and beautiful man. He would be charged with man slaughter in NZ not murder. God bless you Oscar just know that even on the other side of the world people who would not have known you other than through these tragic circumstances have love for you and support you.

Totally Understand

Oscar, I watched your interview last night and my heart was broken, watching you, listening to you, I can totally understand the fear you felt that night (hence why I moved to New Zealand). The pain you must be going through I cannot even begin to imagine. Everyone is quick judge, but who knows how they would have reacted if they were in the same situation. All I can say is be strong and take each day as it comes and know there are people out there that believe in your innocence. All the best and Good luck for the future.

With Expertise

On Sunday I watched the BBC interview with Oscar Pistorius on “60 Minutes” in Australia.
It was gut -wrenching watching this poor man go through severe symptoms of Major Depression and PTSD. I am an Australian doctor with expertise in these areas.
It was clear that his consistent version of events matches the forensic evidence, and much concocted evidence has been disproven.
This has become a gladiatorial spectacle. It is ugly and unseemly and this is the face of the new South Africa presented to the rest of the world.
When Mandela and others were conferring before Apartheid was abolished, a sense of being led by the hand of God was reported.
When Mandela was president, the Modus Operandus of the legal processes addressing the atrocities of what had preceded was that of forgiveness.
What would the great man think now?
It is clear that the incident in question was at worst Manslaughter, or in your country, Culpable Homicide.
However, if one, through vengeance, plots by any means, including defamation or by sullying legal processe,s to manipulate a man to his death, this is premeditated murder. Did you think He would not judge?
As tragic as this was, none of this will bring her back. Forgiveness brings universal peace. He was going to be your son. Do you want this for your son?
Selah,
W.
