Oscar Pistorius sentenced to five years in prison! The pros and cons are batted back and forth.

Oscar Pistorius,South African Olympic athlete known as the “Blade Runner” for racing on prosthetic legs,was sentenced in prison for five years because of killing his girlfriend in 2013.

The USA TODAY reported:The judge,Thokozile Masipa,ruling in place of a jury,found Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide that is the equivalent of manslaughter,for killing his girlfriend model Reeva Steenkamp,29,after shooting her through a bathroom door. She acquitted him of murder.

Pistorius’ lawyer said he could be released after 10 months to serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest.

“The following is what I consider is a sentence that is fair and just both to society and the accused,” the judge said.

On the side of Pistorius,his uncle stated that they would accept the judgement and that Oscar would embrace the opportunity to pay back society.He also suggested there would be no appeal from the defense.

Concerning to the judgement,Reeva Steenkamp’s mother said justice had been done.
It is said that the Steenkamps would not file a civil suit against the Olympian last week.

Celebrities,athletes,and more react to Oscar Pistorius’ 5-year sentence.

Some of the South Africans feel the prison sentence was too light.

Here are some citizens’ comments on this matter.:
“I think it should have been 10 to 15 years and the only reason that it’s less is because of his contribution to society and his disability.”

“I think he will be out within the next year or two because of good behavior, which is an injustice to the justice system.”

“(Pistorius is)a killer, a murderer.You have to punish him (strongly) or he’ll do it again.”

Honestly speaking,I feel sympathy for the citizens’ comments as a Japanese.Even if the shooting was accidental,Pistorius would be arrested for a violation of the Firearm Control Law in Japan.

He has a history of domestic violence and seems to be a man of trigger-happy.He should accept heavy corrective training before return to society.
