With one exception, shooting through a locked door is not shooting in self-defense. The exception is the battered wife or girlfriend. She does not have to wait for the batterer who has beaten her in the past to break down the door and attack her before she pulls the trigger.
Oscar Pistorius was not a battered wife. According to his version of what happened, a reasonable person in his situation would not have believed that he was in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm. He had a loaded gun in his hand. As long as the door remained shut, he was not in imminent danger.
It really does not matter who was in that bathroom. If that person were the devil himself, Pistorius had no reason to shoot. He was not in any danger.
Instead of the devil, that person was his girlfriend.
His story makes no sense.
They had an argument. She hid in the toilet room and locked the door to get away from him. He fired through the door, killing her.
Gerrie Nell is a master at breaking down a lie step by step by focusing on each individual detail.
Theodore Wafer faces the same problem. He unlocked his front door, opened it, and fired through a locked screen door hitting Renisha McBride in the face, killing her.
That’s not self-defense.
Not even close.
