Former girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius defends him on Twitter; ‘You have all my family’s love’

As Twitchy reported, one of FHM cover girl Reeva Steenkamp’s last tweets before she was shot to death on Valentine’s Day was a retweet urging women to wear black to protest rape and domestic abuse. Steenkamp’s boyfriend, South African paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius, has been charged with her murder. Jenna Edkins, a former girlfriend of “the Blade Runner,” stepped forward yesterday to vouch for Pistorius with the hashtag #loveandsupportoscar.

That sentiment didn’t take off, though, aside from a handful of tweets, despite coverage by the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

    Police were there 2 hours before gunshots on domestic argument call. I’m not buying the burglar in the locked bathroom story.

    What was it, four ‘love shots’?

    “I would just like to say , I have dated Oscar on off for 5 YEARS, NOT
    ONCE has he EVER lifted a finger to me , made me fear for my life..”

    Apparently .@JennaEdkins should count herself VERY LUCKY.

    “Not once did he ever lift a finger to me,” said childhood friends of Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer, Adam Lanza, John Wayne Gacy, etc.

    South Africa is full of violent , murderous, Anti-White criminals… I completely understand if he was on edge…

    Where are these stories of previous domestic violence? I just see mention but no proof. All I found was an incident where he slammed the door on a girl at a party when she was asked to leave.

    ETA: okay this isn’t looking good :
