Oscar Pistorius Maintains Innocence

The murder trial of South African Olympian Oscar Pistorius  reached new heights when Pistorius took the stand a few days ago. While on the stand Pistorius broke down crying as the prosecutor repeatedly told him he shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on purpose.

Pistorius claims that he thought an intruder was present in his bathroom, and in a state of panic he reached over grabbed his gun and shot through the door. It was only when it was to late did he realize he had shot and killed his girlfriend.

However, prosecutors say the story goes a little differently. They assert that on the morning of Valentines Day 2013, Pistorius and Steenkamp had an argument and Steenkamp locked herself in the bathroom. Following that Pistorius, in his state of anger, went and grabbed his gun, and then purposely shot through the door with the intent to kill Steenkamp.

It is estimated that the trial will go on for at least another month. What do you think? Is Pistorius innocent or guilty?

Vick’s Doggone Summer

Apparently Vick cannot get a break from his ties with animal cruelty. On the website Change.org, anti-Vick fans are calling for a petition to prevent the controversial player from setting foot on SUNY Cortland’s campus for the Jet’s summer training camp. As a reminder, Michael Vick served a 19-month prison sentence for his role in dogfighting back in 2007. For his cruelty towards animals, both residents of Cortland and other people have organized a petition that already has about 1,500 signatures. Those that signed the petition feel that if Michael Vick is part of the Jets summer training camp, they would be “complicit with his crimes”. The Jets have yet to comment on this petition.

Personally, I feel that Michael Vick should be ashamed of his dog fighting past. But just because I feel what Michael Vick did in 2007 was horrendously wrong does not mean that he should be banned from training, based solely on those grounds. The dog fighting does not reflect on the sport of football or possess any sort of connection with the sport. If Michael Vick did anything wrong under football standards, then I would imagine that the NFL would take care of the situation. But the fact is that Michael Vick did penance for his illegal action and should only face public scrutiny rather than literal actions. People have the right to express themselves, but this petition to ban Michael Vick for an action not related to football seems a bit too extreme.
