I think the cover page of TIME magazine with Oscar Pistorius’ image and title was disgusting!! This magazine, which I had in the past I had respect for, has bent lower among the tabloids. It is as if Oscar has already been convicted and jailed. The thought that this magazine has jumped on the bandwagon with the rest of the … to achieve sensationalism is more than I can stomach. Not to mention not having all the FACTS. They would have done better and been more creditable to use other non-human images, and a different title, than to use an image that, in the past, stood for inspiration and heroism. Making him the poster boy for harden criminals in SA. I hope the powers-that-be are proud of themselves for doing this. It’s all about being in the black, the bottom line, and damn everything else.
A note to all of Oscar’s fans (and haters), and people who want to joke, what happened on FEB 14 was TERRIBLE and TRAGIC but give the court system a chance to do its job. The truth will come out. I know the lies already have.
