Model girlfriend fled to bathroom
as Oscar Pistorius shot her
through the door: neighbor

New York Daily News, by Julian Rademeyer & Larry McShane

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/16/2013 6:14:32 AM

THE MODEL girlfriend of Olympic hero Oscar Pistorius spent her final minutes cowering behind a bathroom door after a late-night fight with her gun-loving boyfriend. The internationally acclaimed double-amputee sprinter pumped four bullets through the door and into the helpless blond beauty, a neighbor told a South African newspaper. Details of the Valentine’s Day murder emerged as Pistorius sobbed inside a South African courtroom before prosecutors alleged the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp was a cold-blooded killing.

He says he didn´t do it. There´s a One-Armed Man joke in there somewhere.

He´s detailed as a "gun-loving" guy. Of course he was dangerous. Good grief SUVs were dangerous on their own, now guns are.

Early days, as the Brits say. Too early to tell just what did happen here.

But how do the neighbors know so much, from having heard arguing to now being able to describe the bathroom door and how she was shot? These are very large houses, set apart on large lots. ???

As for the comment from the disgruntled woman who dated him before he moved on to this woman, nothing she says hasn´t been said about some man at some point by a woman who has been dropped by him. "He was a player." And some women go after famous men. And "he is not what he seems" may be the most poisonous comment one can make. How to prove that one actually is what one eems?

I can wait for more details from appropriate sources.

The gun is not the problem the man is the problem. She was cornered in the bathroom. I have a feeling she was going to end up dead even if he didn´t have the gun. Strangle her, stab her, beat her to death. It´s called domestic violence for a reason. He appears to be a violent man and he was not going to let her leave alive. It will be easy enough to prove that he shot the gun. He certainly was not in fear for his life so what will he say? She was going to scratch my eyes out and I had to defend myself. Four shots through a bathroom door are pretty damning.

Sure he pumped bullets through the door - - but he never intended to actually HIT her.

C´mon, people - - when was the last time you blasted bullets through a door and actually hit someone? It was an accident - - he didn´t mean it.

The Daily News has taken a neighbor´s "report", which even NBC says is "unverified", of her having been shot through a bathroom door and expanded it into her having "fled to bathroom". That little gem is nowhere else.

We need to slow down. For people who purportedly love the "innocent until proven guilty" law under which we and few others in the world live, some of us love to rush to judgment.

If the woman was found shot dead inside the bathroom how can he claim he didn´t know who she was and that he was firing at an unknown intruder? Passion and Jealousy sound a lot more credible to me.

If the neighbor is the sole source of info. here (where she was shot, arguing, etc.), I´m going to wait until LE investigators share what they know. If what´s alleged turns out to be true, this guy´s scum.

A lot of sick people are attracted to these threads. Bad jokes about amputees are not funny no matter what the context.

That said, the scale of these houses, which are built staggered and offset down a street, makes them anything but "built cheek by jowl". Look at the size of the cars relative to the sizes of the houses. There is a lot of space between those houses.

And those are undoubtedly double-paned windows. Did this couple argue in front of an open window so that the neighbors could hear it? And from which side of that bathroom door were the shots fired? Was he in the bathroom with the door closed?

No forced entry? She undoubtedly had a key. Did she leave and then return, planning to surprise him?

There are too many unanswered questions for us to get ready to hang this man.

Regarding those neighbors, here is a long shot of this subdivision.

There are three off-white houses in a row center right, facing the aerial camera. His is the one on the right of this row, the house that is cocked on an angle. There is a white house to its right. The other house lot that abuts on his property faces another street and its back is toward his house. It has a red roof.

Not "cheek by jowl" by any stretch of the imagination. These are big houses on good-sized lots.

If you read this story and your first thought is to decry people making jokes about the killer, you´re probably not as morally astute as you think you are. If your second thought is to work out all the ways the guy who shot his girlfriend might be innocent, you´re probably not astute at all. "Presumption of innocence" does not mean "wilful and total suspension of disbelief."

Assume, ridiculously, that he doesn´t know who is in the house, and that at no time does he call out to challenge a possible intruder, and that at no time does she say anything to let him know who she is. They somehow proceed silently to positions where she is in the bathroom and he is outside the door. The door is closed. He is, therefore, in no immediate danger. Yet, without either party trying to speak, he takes out his gun and shoots through the door multiple times, and she dies instantly and silently, without ever making a sound to let him know who she is.

If that all sounds plausible to you, please decline to ever serve on a jury.

I dunno, #28/31 -- for such large houses, they look pretty tightly juxtaposed to me. Don´t really know what happened here until the facts emerge. But I think that his shooting through the closed bathroom door four times, following a fight loud enough for a neighbor to call the police, undermines any claim of mistaken identity.

I don´t understand why everyone is so quick to believe that the neighbor could possibly know anything for certain. The police plainly said that only the two of them were in the house (no neighbor present). All this "judgment" is making this thread look worse than Evening News.

Fascinating to see the amount of insider information that some, like the Daily News journos and #34, have about this tragic shooting.

One question that comes to mind is how a victim would call out if they were shot with four sequential shots through a (presumably closed) door, one shot going to the head?

Is it really important to convict this guy today?

For me, the moral of the story is that even people who appear admirable --like those have triumphed over terrible adversity-- are not necessarily good persons, or even persons we should heed unquestioningly.

We´re often presented with someone who has suffered some devastating loss, and then are lectured that we can´t question that person´s "moral authority."

Other examples of this phenomenon: Max Cleland, who lost his legs in Vietnam ... then became a liberal politician whom we were not allowed to criticize; and Elie Wiesel; and Cindy Sheehan; and Gabby Giffords.

#39 -- I took #34´s comment as a thought experiment which raised entirely reasonable points. I don´t think it was presented as knowing the specifics of this case, but rather it challenged those who are straining to explain the known facts as exculpatory.

Your own remark -- "One question that comes to mind is how a victim would call out if they were shot with four sequential shots through a (presumably closed) door, one shot going to the head?" does exactly that. It´s not a stretch to presume that bullet holes through the door meant that the door was closed. Of course, if she was already dead, she couldn´t have responded. But, if he knew she was in the house, surely he would have established her whereabouts by calling out to her before shooting through a closed bathroom door.

It remains to be seen what actually happened, but a claim of mistaken identity simply isn´t credible.

To prepare for Dyngus Day, Eddy Dobosiewicz drives to an abandoned lot in east Buffalo, N.Y., in search of an elusive commodity: pussy willows. Dyngus Day celebrations, to be staged Monday in Buffalo and a handful of other U.S. cities, trace their roots to ancient Polish fertility rites centered around the end of Lent and the advent of spring. As part of the festivities, young men traditionally splash water on women they fancy. Women carry pussy willow branches to hit the men they like. But this year, after an especially harsh winter, Dyngus Day organizers are worried that there won´t be enough

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law.

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I
