I would bet my next paycheck that he didn't "retch" the night Steenkamp was shot.  I bet he didn't throw up, NOT ONCE, even when having her blood and specks and chunks of her flesh all over him. And yet - PHOTOS can provoke this response in him?  Pffffttt..... I doubt it.

This is nothing more than an ACT, constructed to convince the audience of how "horrified" he is, at the death of Steenkamp.

I believe he underestimated how long it's taken to convince the world this was an accident, and that a much bigger deal has been made out of this than he thought would happen.

I believe Pistorius was convinced that he could be very convincing.  Pistorius was convinced that he could convince the police, and he would be able to get away with killing Steenkamp.

Police, however, were unconvinced - and charges were brought against Mr. Pistorius.

I remain convinced that this was murder.

Apparently Pistorius remains convinced, that he is convincing enough to get away with it. 

He certainly is throwing his all into it, that's for sure.
