What do you think of the "Blade Runners" case? Should he have gotten bail?
I was one of millions who watched his exploits at the Olympics and cheered him on. This case has come as a shock to many. Is it a case of domestic violence ending badly or was he truly in fear of his life and defending his home?
I just read that he was granted bail for 1 million rand (a little over $100K).
To be honest, I think if the court is going to set bail for one - it should be set for all and the amounts should be commensurate with what the defendant or their family can afford. I am sick and tired of the wealthy skating while those who can't afford good lawyers languish in prison.
I have to say, too, that I'm not sure if there is enough evidence for an arrest in a murder case, that bail should be set at all.
