The verdict, “Not Guilty" is clearly distinguished from "Guilty" or "Innocent", but why isn’t there a plea, "Not Innocent?" There should be that plea. I am no student of jurisprudence, and I still figured that out.
Ignore the technicalities. I am sick of seeing this trial dragged out…
A few things. You say you have not enter ur opinion in this fiction. I see it through out. Anyway, first, there is no item 1). The state has no evidence what so ever to proof that. So life in prison and execution is non existent. IF he is accused of culpable homicide he could get 5 years or a suspended sentence.
Second, you have no idea how many people will cheer for his freedom or his incarceration. You may be surprised. And Not innocent… IS guilty, so I dont know how you came up with that. There are accidentally deaths of gfs and wives and bfs and husbands. The judge will be hailed AND condemned no matter her verdict.
Third, you have no idea what his personal love life will become. Especially if his actions on that night were pure fear and anxiety and thought his gf was in bed. You may be surprised by that too.
You say “There can always be some good to be reaped from evil.” This was not an evil act. It cant be proven to be. You say “Make him give back to humanity.” He has ALWAYS done that and will continue to do so if given the chance again.
Maybe you should go live in SA and see how people who live there feel and react to violence. If not maybe you should read more about violence in SA, period. And while ur at it maybe you should read more about his life and him helping children. Also go through the trial again, its ALL on Youtube. SMH
