[quote]South African police have charged Olympic star Oscar Pistorius with the murder of his girlfriend, who was shot in the sprinter's home Thursday.

Pistorius kept a collection of powerful weapons at his luxury South African home as a means of protection against his country's soaring crime rate, according to a British writer who had exclusive access to the Olympic sprinter.

Oscar Pistorius' court appearance will likely take place Friday. (AP Photo)In the early hours of Thursday morning, the 400 meter runner – the first man to compete in the Olympics and Paralympics – is believed to have used part of his arsenal to tragically gun down his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in what being reported as a heartbreaking accident.

It's sad. Perhaps if she was also carrying a gun she could have defended herself.

Dayum... Unbelievable. That was the last person I expected to see when I opened this thread. I've been semi-following his journey over the years as he obviously had a "feel-good story" backing his efforts.

Wow, just wow. What a demise.

I'm wondering if they got in an argument and she brought up his "third leg"?

I still see you are still trying to blame the gun and not blame the individual for their actions.

But then again, no personal accountability is the rallying cry for you liberal Dems.

Shoot someone...it is the gun's fault.

Don't wirk hard and get an education....it is the systems fault.

Don't want to go out and work a low skill job when you have no skills...it us big corporations' fault

But, don't worry.....the government will take care of all your needs.

Yeah, seems like a weird account... If it was an accident, they don't have manslaughter over there?

And I agree with Happy, she was hawt. Sad deal.

I imagine if he had a car under his bed he could have driven over her in the living room.

Why does this ridiculous response from you not surprise me? Oh yea...that is all you have. Stupid little quips because intelligent thought is just not something you have mastered yet.

I am sure you are a complete disappointment to your parents....but then again they may be as lacking and shallow in intelligent thought as you...in that case, your are the gem if your family.

Carry on

Ah making it about my family and personal. I love it. I'm in.

Let's just hope everyone else in the world has the personal accountability you do when your kid goes to play at their house.
