Here we go again: Welcome to Day 3 of the Oscar Pistorius sentencing.
The defense has been presenting a summary of St. Oscar’s Greatest Hits in support of a recommendation of 3 years home detention in a mansion with a swimming pool. A defense psychologist and a social worker have testified that he’s a broken man and doing time would destroy him.
Surprising revelation yesterday: Pistorius offered to pay the Steenkamps the equivalent of $34,000 but they rejected his offer as “blood money” and announced they do not intend to sue him for killing her. They just want justice for Reeva.
We have not heard much about her. That will change when the prosecution makes its presentation.
