WORLD – Pistorius begins community service

Oscar Pistorius arrived at a Pretoria police station for his first public appearance since his release

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has begun serving community service, a month after he was released from jail.

The Paralympian was granted parole after serving one year of his five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

He must perform community service under the terms of his release.

In his first public appearance since then, he reported to a police station in Pretoria on Saturday wearing sunglasses and carrying a backpack.

He is serving the rest of his sentence under house arrest at his uncle’s home in the city.

    The thought of sharing the planet with this individual is not a pleasant one.

      Then Leave.
      Not condoning what he did but, man is serving his time and
      doing his community service.
      The world will never know what happened there (between his girlfriend & him on that fateful day) but everyone deserves a second chance, he may still turn out to be a solid citizen. If he messes up we know where he will be going.

        So according to you every murderer deserves a second chance, but expression of being uncomfortable knowing that cold, wicked, calculating ‘men’ are freely among us deserves departure from the world. Thankfully your warped opinion has no weight with me. Certainly not the voice of reason.
