Oscar Pistorius made a very serious mistake by going out to a bar, regardless if he consumed any alcohol, because he would have been fair game for any drunk with a chip on his shoulder.
But the following behavior goes far beyond the carefully constructed image of a physically disabled, anxious and emotionally vulnerable victim that his legal team so carefully constructed.
The Telegraph is reporting today,
Oscar Pistorius, the paralympian on trial for murdering girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, drank tequila shots, socialised with a known violent offender and had scantily-clad women sitting on his knee before the fight that led to him leaving a nightclub on Saturday night, it has been claimed.
Another unnamed partygoer quoted by the Johannesburg Star newspaper said he witnessed the scuffle between Mr Mortimer and another “flat-out drunk” man he later identified as Pistorius as he passed him with a group of friends and allegedly flashed his middle finger.
Instead, his conduct is consistent with this alleged behavior:
He also faces two charges that he recklessly discharged a firearm in public – one charge relates to him shooting a friend’s gun by accident in a crowded Johannesburg restaurant and another relates to him allegedly firing his gun through a car sunroof during a day out.
That is why I’m shaking my head and asking, WTF was he thinking?
Before this face-plant, I did not believe he had a realistic chance at an acquittal.
Now, I am sure he doesn’t.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
