Have you kept up with Oscar Pistorius?
Long story short, a double amputee Olympian was convicted in South Africa for shooting his girlfriend through a bathroom door. It was supposedly an accident. There's lots more tot hat story, but a ruling found him guilty of culpable homicide. Basically manslaughter. OOPS, I didn't mean to...
And now his lawyer says he should be on house arrest and should have to clean floors. And he should not be destroyed, in fact he should be allowed to continue to compete in his sport. So basically, life should go on for him.
