Transcript:Pistorius told the judge: "My lady, the sound of that gunshot in the bathroom, you wouldn't have heard anyone scream. The decibels of the gunshot, I don't believe you would have heard anyone scream. When I had finished firing the gunshots, I was screaming and I couldn't hear my own voice." = Oh yes, my lady (long nods). No accident - unsound conduct. Why? Oh, we had this huge, huge argument over Reeva's cheating. She hid behind the toilet door (Snort!). I shot my Parabellum four times, over and over again. No! Oh, the noise was just awful. I wanted her to die, my lady. I hated the bitch! (Sniff) PS I can't run.
