Pistorius trial postponed to August 19…on Reeva Steenkamp’s birthday
Posted by on Jun 4th, 2013

So as expected the pre-trial of Oscar Pistorius didn’t last very long this morning and  the murder case was postponed till August 19 later this year. Nothing out of the ordinary with that, oh wait….that just so happens to be the birthday of Reeva Steenkamp.

Reeva would have turned 30 on that day.

Given the reaction on social media networks this was clearly a poorly chosen date to start the murder trial.

Here are a few reactions from Twitter.

Lots folks wondering if it was planned by the defence team to gain sympathy or a just bizarre co-incidence.

Mystified why A) this court case is dragging on …and …on…and on… when the whole world seems to be focussed on this battle

B) the very insensitive nature of placing the court-case on Reeva Steenkamp’s birthday…

Seems that anything is possible with inconsiderate morons!
