Oscar Pistorius begs for forgiveness of victim Reeva Steenkamp’s family

Paralympic Oscar Pistorius, who was imprisoned for 15 years for shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, ​​said he was anxious to have his best friend accept the apology.

His former principal, Bill Schroeder, 76, said Blade Runner stopped exercising, started smoking, had a big beard, and returned to God.

Mr Schroeder, who visited him four times in prison, said Sun Sunday: “Forgive him what he really really wants.

“If he killed my daughter, I didn’t think I would forgive him, I told him.

“He is more interested in forgiveness than he is actually on parole. In fact, he is really afraid to get parole because he knows that parole will be a backlash.”

“He quoted an expert study when you woke up from a deep sleep and were placed in a situation where you were afraid to behave very differently than when you were completely conscious. I heard what you said, but didn’t buy it. “

In 2018, Riva’s mother, then 71, forgave Pistorius but said she still wanted to punish him.
