Screaming Like a Girl

Screaming Like a Girl

From outset Barry Roux introduced to the Court that Oscar Pistorius 'screams like a girl' so we all knew that he was going to raise this again at some point, present the Court with some sort of recording of Pistorius screaming.

Gerrie Nel

Mr Pistorius have you listned to the recording of you?

So you screamed Reeva’s name out

Nel

So the screaming between the two shot gunshots was that also you?

Pistorius

On the States evidence centre of the gunfire on the first shots.

Nel

They said said between the noises they heard screaming was that you.

Pistorius

 Which..which shots My Lady because they said they heard screaming between the shots the second shots that’s what they said….which the State said…

Nel.  

Between the first shot and second shot there was screaming was that you?

Pistorius

On which series My Lady on the first series of the second?

Nel

You see I don’t know why you don’t understand I think you don’t want to.

Pistorius

The Stip (?) gave evidence that they heard sounds that they heard a woman scream again.

Then they heard sounds again can you remember that.   (pause waiting for Pistorius to reply) can you?

Mr Pistorius is there a problem you are quiet  looking at the Court

Judge   Just give him time, he's thinking.

Pistorius

If Mr nel can just tell me which  because, remember, the Stips said the gunshots were the second grouping, the second noises they heard.

Nel

Yes. They heard screaming before then, the second shots.  Who was that?

Pistorius

That was myself My Lady.

Nel 

Why?  What did you scream about?

Pistorius

I was screaming out for Reeva screaming out for her to phone the police

Nel

 But by that time on your version she was already shot.

Pistorius

That's correct My Lady.

Nel

So after that did you still scream out for her to phone the police?

Pistorius

Yes My Lady

Nel 

Up until the time, that.. you screamed for her to phone the police up until the time you broke down the door?

Pistorius

No I screamed for her to phone the police up until the time I got to the bed, My Lady when I walked back to the bed.

Nel

Was there screams up until the time on your version that you hit the door with the bat?

Pistorius

Yes there were screams

Nel 

What did you scream?

Pistorius

I screamed Reeva’s name out I screamed…

Nel

Why?

Pistorius

Because I wanted to know where she was My Lady.

Nel. 

So you screamed Reeva's name out during  the time that you hit the bat… on the door?

PIstorius

Yes when I hit the bat on the door My Lady, I was screaming out to....

Nel.  


 So..they heard a woman but it was You?

Pistorius


That's correct My Lady

Nel 

Now have you had your voice tested?

Pistorius

Nel 


And could you listen to your voice?

Pistorius

Yes, I could, I haven’t listened to my voice but I have watched....but I’ve watched interviews when I’ve been on fields and I’ve shouted
