A probation officer appearing for the defense at the sentencing hearing of Oscar Pistorius, has recommended that the Olympic blade-runner should not face jail time, but instead serve community service and house arrest.

Now, that is just plain egregious and again speaks to the unbecoming arrogance of Pistorius and his defense team.

As expected, the family of the murdered Reeva Steenkamp as well as the prosecutor Gerrie Nel were extremely angry with the latter describing the suggestion as "shockingly inappropriate".
