Side bar: Been meaning to ask you about South Africa's reaction to the Pistorius verdict. I believe the judge is awaiting to determine her sentence for culpable homicide.
Folks aren't happy.
Naturally the feminists have turned this into a "well, you can murder a woman and get away with it", but to me it's more than that. 2 people lost their child, and don't really have any answers to go home to.
There's talk of maximum sentence being 15 years, but if gets anything over 5 (probably out in 2 on good behavior) I'll be VERY VERY surprised. I think the judge will dish out some years due to the potential backlash.
Also, race is still a heated subject, and there's always talk of "if he was black", and black folk are calling for his head knowing damn well if that case was on a black dude, he'd be under the jail.
One last factor to take into consideration, this is the first time cameras have ever been allowed in the court in SA, so for many people this is their first interaction with court proceedings, and they still have a long way to go in the understanding of murder charges, intent, tainted evidence etc.
All in all...the judge better through him some years, otherwise there will be a very unhappy public.
