Twitterverse responds to SCA ruling on Pistorius

The athlete was this morning found guilty of murder by a full bench of Supreme Court judges.

JOHANNESBURG - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein this morning overturned former Paralympian star Oscar Pistorius's culpable homicide conviction to murder.

Pistorius was convicted in 2014 of culpable homicide for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day in 2013.

But the State appealed the culpable homicide conviction, arguing that he should have been convicted of murder instead.

Twitter users have been quick to respond to this morning's SCA ruling.

Leach said, "[#OscarPistorius] must have forseen and therefore did foresee that whoever was behind toilet door might die..."

Now we can tweet: #OscarPistorius is a murderer, and not a negligent killer.

SCA: Inconceivable that rational person would believe he was entitled to shoot at person behind door without warning shot. #OscarPistorius

Leach ruled that #OscarPistorius's parallel universe of anxiety allowing him to kill at will does not exist.
