    I can't believe they couldn't find him guilty.
    So can he still be imprisoned for the other charges - wrongful death and all that?

    I like how this judge equates abuse with being fickle. Even if the texts are decided to be irrelevant to the ruling, there's no need to pontificate with such fucking stupidity.

    Or taking the piss. What a farce.

    Being totally objective it was never going to be easy to prove intentional, premeditated cold blooded murder, especially beyond reasonable doubt. So in that sense I don't think the judge had much choice but to acquit.

    However, the fact that he's a typical Boer arrogant gun nut with a volatile temper and a bad attitude towards women must have some consequences (other than the violent death of an innocent woman) surely?

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Maybe it's a language thing but the wording of her decision made it sound like she was convinced he thought it was an intruder, not that she was unconvinced he didn't - OK that's confusing, but instead of saying "I have no doubt the accused believed he was shooting an intruder" I would believe "I cannot find beyond reasonable doubt that he knew it wasn't an intruder" so the way she worded it sounds like she's convinced it was a case of mistaken identity.

    Yes, that's what she said and it may well be that genuinely he thought it was an intruder. The problem was how he reacted to it, ie, blasting away with a powerful handgun rather than getting out of the house and calling the cops.

    News reports here that she adjourned the proceedings midway through her verdict and there's now all kinds of horse trading going on with both sets of lawyers behind closed doors. Very odd, or maybe that's the South African process. The fix is in IMO.

    The fix was in from day 1. But that's okay, at least my sweet baboo will be able to fly out for a rendezvous or two.

    You pain me, child. He's really not all that. He kind of looks like one of those Aryan kids you see on Hitler Youth posters from the 1930s. I can picture him and a bunch of strong young tow-headed kids looking brightly towards the future/fuhrer.
