Police appear to be 'Stumped' as to the reason.

Shocking news. I have to admit, the minute my wife and I heard the 'mistaken for a burgalar' line, our collective thought was 'yeah, pull the other one'. I guess it could well have been at a distance where it could happen by chance but wasn't she shot in the head (what I read on BBC anyway)?


Another leg joke? Shocking.

Something definitely doesn't add up though.


Unintentional, but fuck it, I'll have that.

People are actually making jokes after a young woman has been shot to death?

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

To be fair, this place has been severely lacking in the hectoring moral guardian department since The Great Expulsion. I'm glad that there are still people willing to step into the breach.

I have to agree. If the shoe was on the other foot and I was in Oscar's shoes, I'd be hot footing it out of there.

If he's guilty he should definitely stand trial and come clean, rather than getting cold feet and legging it.

I've got no problems at all with jokes about death, murder, disability, etc just as long as the next time an actor or director dies and someone makes a quip it isn't met with disapproval or a ticking off from a mod.

It's not absolute and is down to context. Some threads run to puns, some don't, Some people genuinely think the pun ones are sometimes in remarkably poor taste. I happen to think so here - a young woman has been killed and all the world wants to do is think up blade runner jokes. Most based around the fact the man who apparently shot her is disabled.

It's often a question for any of these threads whether the general feeling is it's gone to far. That doesn't seem to be the case here. So I'll just continue to avoid reading the posts.

Im with DC on this one. Oscar has fucked up here, such a shame because he was awesome to watch in the games and there was a buzz about him for a while. Accident or not he has killed his partner, and is now to be charged with her murder. Hes screwed himself and im completely shocked by the news.

There's a yawning chasm in hell in which all of you will be dropped for making these puns.



I know it's just jokes, but a bit distasteful all the same considering it POSSIBLY a murder, and police have revealed previous domestic disturbances, of course what these disturbances are is speculation. I don't know if South Africa charges people with murder as a matter of routine, and innocent until proven guilty, but a bit more respect to a victim of what could either a terrible accident or crime should perhaps be given, without wanting to sound too saintly.

Oh, Lord, youngling......you wandered into the wrong forum if you expect us to back off from such a deep well of bad taste jokes.

I don't expect anything, merely expressing an opinion which is allowed. And I've not just wandered here you fool, I was a member of these forums years ago in the orange days. So leave the youngling crap, next you'll be calling me a n00b. I know that every story is an excuse for bad jokes and puns, as long as its open season on everything it's no problem. I have loads of bad taste child abuse puns ready just on the off chance, seeing as its established its fine. I'm not some prude, far from it. But as said, I am allowed to voice my opinion just as much as everyone else is allowed to make jokes about it. Cos you know, this forum doesn't operate just for people who haven't just wandered in and don't know the rules. Idiotic thing to say.

To quote Nathan jessop, don't I feel like the fucking asshole seriously, you're not a fool obviously, you're very lovely. I'm not having a go at anyone here, but I just remember the days when the tone in the news forum was more serious, and not off topic-ish or idle banter for that matter. Times change I guess.

See, I knew this thread would be cannon fodder for punnage. I don't know if that's because this place is predictable or because I really need to get out more.

There's definitely something fishy about the mistaking her for a burglar line. How many burglars in South Africa look like blonde, leggy models? Was she wearing a balaclava? Fair enough if she was, but to mistake a little thing like her for a burglar is bullshit, if I'm honest.

Safe to say South Africa is one place I never, ever want to visit!

Putting bad taste jokes aside for a mo, just saw The Sun's front page for today's edition.

It's a real facepalmer. They might as have this as the headline: "This woman was shot six times.... PHWOAR LOOK THE DEAD GIRL'S TITS, EH LADS? PHWOOOOAR!"

"Surely Oscar can't be the first man to wake up legless on Valentine's Day, and then empty a load into his girlfriend's face while imagining she was someone else?"


I am very conflicted about his one. Itís beautifully crafted, but utterly horrible.

Whats sad about this is that shoddy journalism has made international headlines focus on crime and fear in SA, as opposed to focusing on domestic violence

How come its ok for everyone in this thread to make utterly awful jokes about a brutal murder of a young girl, but The Sun shows its lack of decency and everyone is up in arms?

Not saying I condone The Sun, its abysmal and they should be held to account for it. But this thread is hardly the first port of call of decency and respect, is it?

It is rather sad to see that the violent death of a women has kind of been glossed over in favour of unnecessary punnage...

The ONLY way I can think it happened IF what he claims happened IS true, is that he heard noise assuming it to be a burglar, grabbed his gun, didn't switch the lights on, saw a shadow and then, hand up in front of his face and with his eyes closed, just shot "blindly" in the general area. Otherwise, I can't see how he would have not known it wasn't a burglar after the first or second shot.

Now, whilst the above is plausible, one other BIG assumption has to be made for it to be - that he has never fired a gun before.

I read he's still strongly denying murder (or, at least, pre-meditated murder), so I suppose we'll have to wait to see what the next few days/weeks brings.



P.S. - I'm not glossing over my pun from page 1, just thinking more seriously about what may (or may not) have happened now.
