TWITTER EXPLODES AFTER SHOCKING MURDER ACQUITTAL OF OSCAR PISTORIUS…FINAL VERDICT EXPECTED TODAY
Many people were shocked on Thursday when the judge in the Oscar Pistorius trial acquitted the paralympian of murder, and many took to social networking sites to voice their disappointment:
“Oscar Pistorius has been found NOT guilty? He killed his girlfriend! Is this a sick joke?! #JusticeForReeva,” @Harrv_Styles wrote on Twitter.
Another user, @KarlJCompton wrote: “I can’t believe Oscar Pistorius has been found not guilty of murder. He intended to kill her, don’t care what anyone says. #Disgusting.”
During the first half of her judgment on Thursday, Judge Thokozile Masipa found that Pistorius was not guilty of murder but could still be found guilty of culpable homicide.
“The accused therefore cannot be found guilty of murder dolus eventualis [legal intent]… that however is not the end of the matter as culpable homicide is a competent verdict,” she said in the High Court in Pretoria.
