Oscar Pistorius: A few words from my heart - "No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved - and continues to love - Reeva. The pain and sadness - especially for Reeva's parents, family and friends - consumes me with sorrow. The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Oscar." = Half accurate account of Valentine's Day Massacre - premeditated murder or not guilty? "Last Valentine's Day I overreacted after a bedroom tiff and shot my lover who was on the toilet. Why? I had no prostheses on and was very scared of an intruder, I swear. Fact is, the cow may have chaffed at me, 'Such a queer impotent legless wretch!' So what? She placated herself. As for my unusual propensity for violence... I'm so sorry."
