Talk about special treatment… Oscar Pistorious, you know the gun toting paraplegic olympic winner who murdered his model girlfriend on Valentines Day… yeah that guy was allowed out of prison for four hours to visit his family.
The shamed olympian was given compassionate leave to attend his grandmothers memorial service. As news of Pistorius’ leave emerged, reaction appeared predominantly negative amid accusations that the athlete’s ‘white privilege’ and status had led to him getting special treatment.

One woman, Zamachibi Mthabela, wrote online: ‘It’s so nice being a white male murderer in South Africa.’
Another Facebook user said: ‘Disgusted! Many murderers get denied to even attend their own mothers’ funerals. Only for the white rich murderers I see.’
