Then came the bizarre story that the lead investigator in the case was being charged with seven counts of attempted murder in an earlier, unrelated case.
Now comes the sad story today that the brother of Oscar Pistorius, Carl, is being charged with culpable homicide in a case from 2008.
I don't know what's in the water in South Africa. But if anyone is asked to be on the jury in this Oscar Pistorius case, they'd probably be wise to turn it down, lest they discover they're involved in some murder. It sounds like playing "six degrees of separation" in South Africa not only never gets much farther than two degrees, but can also be dangerous to your health.
