Murder Runs In The Pistorius Family - Brother Going On Trial

It seems that it is not just Oscar Pistorius who is a killer in the family. His brother, Carl was supposed to go on trial last week for negligent homicide had it continued to next month. He has been charged with what we would call negligent homicide. He was recklessly driving when he killed someone with his car. He has been on bail for almost two years. His lawyer says the evidence will show that he is not guilty.

Apparently his charges were provisionally withdrawn and then reinstated.

Wtf? Are they just saving the all the info & slowly leaking it so there will be a completely new Wtf headline every other day?

Meanie Reese said...

Jeez, can you imagine the family get-togethers?!

MISCH said...

So did he know her or was this a random hit

ethorne said...

@Meanie- you mean in prison?

@ethorne- zing!

kgirl said...

From what I've read it was random. The family requested further investigation bc they think he may have been drinking and the charges were reinstated.

@ethorne: Bam!!!

How phuqued up is this whole thing?! Oscar, the cop and the brother...and isn't there a charge against a prosecutor? Holy shitballs.

Curious, curious. While crazy, I don't believe that this validates that murderous tendencies run in the family and he must have done it. All it does is show us that where this family goes, death, intentional or unintentional, will follow.

And I thought my family was disfunctional....hmmmm

I wonder if murder IS hereditary?........or runs in families.........

Disgusting.They should both be locked up and throw away the artificial legs.

Excellent reportage French Girl.

Honestly there is so much crime in South Africa that it's hard NOT to be touched by it. If no alcohol was involved one wonders why they are going after him.I didn't click on French Girls link cuz I'm mobile right now.

Oscar called his family before calling the police. It's been reported that they removed large quantities of ammunition from the house prior to the police arriving.

I don't understand how a policeman with 7 counts pending against him wasn't riding a desk.

So now it's the Pistorius brothers, both reckless and dangerous to be around, and neither one is guilty of anything, not even negligence. Of course not.

That family has entered notorious territory.

Well, you know what they say, the family that murders together stays together

Geez, it was a fucking tragic car accident. He wasn't on anything, he didn't plan to be in an accident with a motorcyclist. Thousands upon thousands of people make stupid decisions while driving that result in death every year. It is tragic, and they may be culpable but it hardly makes them "murderers".

Reckless driving does not a murderer make.

Have to disagree that this means murder runs in the family.
