Those who remain hopeful about the future of the Chinese economy got some extra evidence to bolster their case today. On Tuesday, the government announced that GDP in the third quarter rose by a slightly better-than-expected 7.3%.
But don’t get too excited. That 7.3% is the slowest quarterly pace in five years — since the depths of the recession after the 2008 Wall Street financial crisis.
Athlete Oscar Pistorius was sentenced Tuesday to five years imprisonment for the Valentine’s Day killing of his model girlfriend Reeva Steemkamp.
The 27-year-old double-amputee was found guilty of culpable homicide after shooting Steenkamp through the toilet door of his home in Pretoria on Feb. 14, 2013.
The “Blade Runner,” as Pistorius is known due to his trademark prosthetic limbs, claims he thought an intruder lurked inside, but the state maintained that he shot four times with the intention of killing Steenkamp after the couple had argued.
The South African was acquitted of murder by Judge Thokozile Masipa last month after a high-profile trial that was televised around the world.
In sentencing Pistorius, Masipa said she weighed, “The personal circumstances of the accused and interests of society.”
She added: “A non-custodial sentence would send the wrong message to the community, but a long sentence would also not be appropriate.”
Pistorius made history as the first Paralympian to compete against able-bodied athletes at the 2012 London Olympics.
On Tuesday at South Africa's Pretoria High Court, Judge Thokozile Masipa sentenced Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius to five years in prison for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013. Masipa also gave the double-amputee runner a three-year suspended sentence for an unrelated charge of recklessly firing a gun in a crowded restaurant.
