The title of a recently released CNN article is “INTIMATE photos show Oscar Pistorius (and) Reeva Steenkamp before her death” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/14/world/africa/south-africa-pistorius-photos/index.html?hpt=hp_t1).
“The photos of Oscar Pistorius and girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp APPEAR to show a young couple in love“. BLISSFULLY “in love” judging by the photos.
“Pistorius DOES NOT DENY shooting Steenkamp, a law school graduate with a burgeoning TV and fashion career, but says it was a “DEVASTATING (?) accident“. If Pistorius REALLY shot Steenkamp AFTER NON-STOP ARGUING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT because Pistorius was an ALPHA male who HAD TO HAVE HIS WAY all the time, then this WASN’T “devastating” and perhaps these two WEREN’T as madly in love as we thought they were.
In a statement on his web-site on the anniversary of the shooting, Pistorius said: “The LOSS of Reeva and THE COMPLETE TRAUMA (?) of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life“. REALLY?
“In a recent statement, Barry and June Steenkamp, Reeva’s parents, said they would like to thank people for their condolences”. “We understand and EMPATHIZE with friends who have lost a child through VIOLENCE or ABUSE” obviously because Barry and June Steenkamp LOST THEIR DAUGHTER to a “violent” and “abusive” man (Oscar Pistorius). Also notice that there is NO HINT that Barry and June Steenkamp are willing to accept Pistorius’ alibi that he shot Steenkamp by accident. The Steenkamp family clearly WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH Pistorius now.
In conclusion, let’s return to the title and the first sentence of this article: “INTIMATE photos show Oscar Pistorius (and) Reeva Steenkamp before her death”. “The photos of Oscar Pistorius and girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp APPEAR to show a young couple in love“. Well, if Pistorius MURDERED Steenkamp they obviously WEREN’T as “intimate” and “in love” as people thought they were/they appeared in public/on TV/in press coverage.
