And the verdict is "Not Guilty"

It was judgement day for world-renowned athlete, Oscar Pistorius as he received the judge's verdict on his murder case for the death of his former fiancee Reeva Steenkamp in Pretoria, South Africa,

According to the Telegraph, the Judge, Thokozile Masipa, "finds Oscar Pistorius not guilty of murder but calls the athlete 'negligent' in shooting Reeva Steenkamp and will rule on 'manslaughter' tomorrow friday." 

Futhermore, Judge Masipa said prosecutors had not proved he intentionally meant to kill his fiancee, but added that he acted hastily and had been negligent saying that a reasonable person would not have fired. On hearing the verdict, Oscar Pistorius broke down in tears.

The verdict has elicited various reactions all over the world. What do you think of the verdict? Lets hear from you....
