Today's Topic: Oscar Pistorius on trial for Reeva Steenkamp murder

Triggers: BBC News Report

My Grump: I just want to ask Oscar a question

Key Points of the trial.
Mr Pistorius shot Ms Steenkamp, 29, a model and reality TV star, at his home in Pretoria on 14 February 2013.

Ms Steenkamp was in the bathroom at the time and was shot through the door.

He has also been charged with illegally possessing ammunition.

Mr Pistorius has pleaded not guilty to all the charges he faces.

For the first time in South Africa, parts of the trial will be televised live, amid intense media interest.

The 27-year-old double amputee won gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games and also competed at the Olympics.State prosecutors allege the killing was premeditated, after the couple had a row, but he claims he mistook her for an intruder.

However, I'd just like to ask one question of the defendent.

What burglar breaks in to take a dump before robbing you?

Someone sent me a little poem about Oscar:
Roses are red, violets are glorious,
It's wise not to startle Oscar Pistorius

Please share your thoughts below, thank you.
