PLAYERS: Oscar Pistorius

By now the news about Oscar Pistorius being charged with premeditated murder in the shooting death of his girl friend Reeva Steenkamp has made it around the world a couple of times. What the world may not know is his older brother who has not claimed fame by running in the Olympics with fake legs, is also facing his own murder trial. Carl Pistorius is facing a murder trial for the death of a women he killed while driving his car recklessly before he crashed with the female motorcyclist in the daytime. While Oscar’s brother’s murder may well have been a terrible accident, he still faces a charge of Culpable homicide. The parents of the Pistorius brother’s have to be at their whits end. What are the chances when you give birth to two sons, one day both of them would be facing murder charges for taking the lives of two young women? The trail of Oscar’s brother Carl was sent to start this week. The courts have wisely postponed the start of Carl’s trial due to the publicity surrounding the murder his brother Oscar allegedly committed on Valentines day. It looks like both Pistorius brothers lives life recklessly and both brothers may not have concern for the lives of others. Now both Pistorius brothers could be facing years behind bars. The trial has been rescheduled for the end of March. If you were writing a movie script, you couldn’t dream up this stuff….
