I don't know anything about legal process in SA so from that perspective the case is quite interesting. The bail hearing goes into so much detail - things I would have thought would be saved until trial. 

I was surprised by that too xine. Particularly since the incident happened so recently.

Reminds me of a story from South Africa's 'Mail and Guardian' newspaper.

"Today a man went mad in the streets of Johannesburg, until he was shot dead by a passing church-goer"

Sticking him in front of the judge with his head bowed down and a hundred cameras flashing away feels like being put in a modern day stocks. Guilty or not that isn't right. Those South Africans are fucked up.
