 Feb 22 - Oscar Pistorius (Blade Runner) gets bail!

PRETORIA, South Africa A judge has granted bail to Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee athlete who has been charged in the shooting [rip] of his girlfriend.

Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair announced his decision Friday, on the fourth day of Pistorius' bail hearing.

Pistorius is charged with one count of premediated murk over the Feb. 14 k!lling of Reeva Steenkamp. He says he accidentally shot her, thinking she was a dangerous intruder inside his home, lurking in a toilet stall off his bedroom.

The prosecution vehemently opposed bail, calling the Olympian also known as the "Blade Runner" a flight risk.

Pistorius' hands trembled as he said, "Good morning, your worship" as the session began in Magistrate's Court in Pretoria, South Africa's capital.


For the first time some of Reeva Steenkamp's friends have come to the hearing, but her family and those closest to her have stayed away.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel called Pistorius' version that he shot Steenkamp accidentally improbable and argued that Pistorius did not have to have planned the k!lling for days in advance for it to be premediated.


"He planned it that night when she (Steenkamp) locked herself in (the toilet)," Nel said in response to a question from the magistrate on why Pistorius hadn't staged a break-in at his home to make his story look more believable. "The fact that we have only one survivor of that tragic night is difficult for the state."


Pistorius' defense lawyer, Barry Roux, brought up culpable homicide as a possible charge for the first time in the case when answering questions from the magistrate

"The change is that he is heartbroken, that is all," Louw said in the courtroom, surrounded by reporters and television cameras. "For me it is tough to see that. Not to be able to reach out and sit next to him and say, 'Sorry, man, it was a terrible accident.' But I cannot do it, I must just sit here in court and that's all.


"The sooner he can start working the better." said Louw, who was the person who convinced the double amputee to take up track as a teenager a decade ago.


As the hearing got underway today, Frik and Claudia Van Wyk -- both friends of the Pistorius family -- stood with a placard showing their support for Pistorius and for the family of Reeva Steenkamp.

"This is tragic what's happened to Reeva, tragic what's happened to him, so yes we are supporting both the families," Claudia Van Wyk said tearfully.

Pistorius has been held at a police station in Pretoria since last week, but suspects who are denied bail are typically held in a prison.


Roux argued on Thursday that the evidence backs Pistorius' statement that he shot through a toilet door at his home because he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, k!lling her by accident.


"I think there will be a level of shock in this country if he is not released (on bail)," Roux said in court.


Opposing bail, Nel argued that Pistorius was too willing to shoot. The prosecution says Pistorius planned to k!ll his 29-year-old girlfriend, a model and budding reality TV star, after an argument in the early hours of Valentine's Day.


"The reason you fire four shots is to k!ll," Nel said.


Louw said he might put Pistorius, who overcame the amputation of his lower legs as a baby to compete at last year's London Olympics, back on a morning and afternoon training routine if he is freed, believing it might help him to be able to run track again.


"You must give him space," the coach said.

I gotta feeling hes gonna beat it too.. Honestly, I see no reason for him k!lling his GF on purpose and not have a escape plan. He knew he would go to jail so why do it? I can see him honestly being scared with no legs, one thing I don't understand though, is how you don't glance at the bed and see your girl not there unless its pitch black and you can't tell.

Why would you shoot through a bathroom door though... like there is no reason at all to do it...

If he heard some man's voice talking about k!lling or robbing in the bathroom then i would understand...

But to just start shooting through a bathroom door?

he shot into the bathroom 4 times...first one missed...the second one hit, when someone gets hit with a bullet they will scream, 3rd shot hit the elbow, 4th shot hit the hip...u mean to tell me the lady made no sound at all when the 1st bullet hit her....I understand being paranoid in that country but come on man too many things just dont add up
