Pistorius parole is a real disgrace

We live in a very strange world. Having shot his girlfriend Oscar Pistorius (inset) is due to be released from prison on parole in August, after serving 10 months behind bars. His sentence was five years and he won't even do one. Whether it was murder or homicide, one would imagine that even for the sake of the family of Reeva Steenkamp - who, along with their daughter, are the true victims in this - the law would ensure that he was locked away for a decent amount of time. And 10 months is simply not enough time, given the crime that was committed. It's baffling to me. And it's an absolute disgrace.
