If you’ve been checking your Twitter feed today, chances are that you have been spammed by loads of Things Longer Than Oscar’s Sentence (#ThingsLongerThanOscarsSentence) tweets.
Thanks to sentence being passed in the Oscar Pistorius Trial (5 years jail time for culpable homicide), this hashtag has hit the number 1 trending topic nationally and internationally today.
Judging by what I’ve seen on social networks, the majority of people in South Africa (and many people abroad) are not happy about this “light” verdict for the crime that was committed. Their anger was fueled a little more when it came to light that Oscar would only need to serve 10 months of his sentence before he would be eligible for parole. It’s totally ridiculous and whoever came up with the Things Longer Than Oscar’s Sentence (#ThingsLongerThanOscarsSentence) hashtag (which has spawned some dark humor) is a genius if you ask me.
Oscar Pistorius got a way with a slap on the wrist, and these 30 Things Longer Than Oscar’s Sentence (#ThingsLongerThanOscarsSentence) Tweets are proof of how ridiculous it is:
