This was my exact reaction after reading Oscar’s affidavit on the Feb. 19. Until his official version of the incident came out, I was holding back on forming an opinion, as I said. But when I realized I could potentially believe his version, my paradigm shifted. I had been so focused on Reeva – and rightfully so – that I hadn’t even been able to even attempt to empathize with Oscar. I experienced some very strange emotions that day; the whole situation is so tragic it’s like a mindfuck to even try to comprehend.Still, based on the established facts regarding that night, I can believe that Oscar made a horrendously stupid and ultimately fatal mistake in a moment of panic. I am less inclined to believe he decided to murder someone he cared for and simultaneously destroy his career over an argument. As improbable as Oscar’s statement is, I find the accusation of premeditated murder more far-fetched. As Mary Carillo said, I feel heartsick over the entire case.
I know lots of people disagree with me, and I’m going to address that in this post. Please hit the jump and read the whole thing before responding to it in any way. Anyone addressing this post without reading it will be wasting time. (TL;DR? Fine, just move on.)
Agreed, I dont know if he’s telling the truth or not, Ill leave that to when the case is formally presented in the actual Trial, and all evidence is revealed.
But at this stage his case is a lot more clearer and plausible (albeit questionable) than it was when all we had to go on was gossip in the media. The Prosecution were clumsy at best and offered me nothing substantial to sway me in their direction.
This whole thing has been horrendous - The violent death of this Beautiful, young, vibrant woman - the villainization of a Sporting Hero who is yet to stand Trial and the Media Circus surrounding it.
NO ONE WINS here, whatever the outcome, everyone lost something, most importantly Reeva Steenkamp. I just hope for justice for her and her family, and Oscar and his family, that he is rightfully judged ONLY on what actually happened that night.
