PRETORIA, South Africa -- An expert witness for the defence

PRETORIA, South Africa -- An expert witness for the defence at the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius was supposed to help the athletes assertion that he killed his girlfriend by mistake last year, but he ended his testimony on Thursday amid blistering attacks on his credibility by a prosecutor who accused him of slipshod analysis and fuzzy explanations. Shane Lechler Jersey . Roger Dixon, a former forensic scientist for the South African police, was frequently on the back foot as he tried to fend off sharp questions from chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel, who says Pistorius is lying and fatally shot Steenkamp on purpose after a nighttime argument in his home. For nearly a week, the double-amputee runner was subjected to the same kind of harsh scrutiny when he testified that fear led him to fire four shots through a toilet door at what he thought was an intruder. Legal analysts say Judge Thokozile Masipa will review the mass of testimony in its totality, which is said to be almost 2,000 pages so far, and that it can be misleading to assess the course of the trial by a single witness. Defence lawyer Barry Roux, for example, hounded police witnesses with questions about alleged mishandling of evidence at the house where Pistorius killed Steenkamp in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013. Masipa, who will deliver a verdict on the premeditated murder charge against Pistorius, adjourned the trial until May 5. Dixon, now a geologist at the University of Pretoria, was forced to acknowledge Wednesday that he had no expertise in light and sound measurement, as well as pathology and ballistics, despite his commenting on those topics while testifying about the circumstances of Steenkamps death. On Thursday, Nel resumed his attack, criticizing Dixons work after the geologist did not use Pistorius exact height when standing on his stumps. The prosecutor questioned why his measurements were 20 centimetres (eight inches) shorter in a test to see if Pistorius head and body would have been high enough to be seen by a neighbour through a window of his bathroom. "It is something I omitted. I overlooked it at the time," Dixon said, adding that he was not trying to "mislead" the court. Nel also questioned Dixons statement that he conducted tests showing that Pistorius bedroom is very dark at night and with the curtains closed, a conclusion that would support the athletes contention that his inability to see his girlfriend on the night that he killed her contributed to the shooting. Nel noted that Dixon judged how dark it was without using any light-measuring equipment. "What one can see using your eyes is a very subjective thing," Nel said. "I wanted to see what I could see," Dixon replied. "A measurement doesnt translate to me into what Im actually seeing." Nel also said Dixon was giving convoluted responses, addressing the judge: "My lady, may I just ask the witness which question hes answering at the moment?" Another time, Dixon picked up a prosthetic leg of Pistorius that had been included as trial evidence while discussing varnish traces that he said were found on the prosthesis and he matched to the door varnish. The defence has cited that as proof that the Paralympic champion tried to kick down the door to get to Steenkamp after realizing, according to his version, he had shot her by mistake. Then the prosecutor chided Dixon for not bringing the varnish sample to court. Dixon appeared serene throughout the rough-and-tumble of his cross-examination. Asked if he knew the states case and other trial details, he said: "I am not like most people. I do not have a television set. I do not have a radio at home." His Twitter handle reads: "I am a mineralogist and forensic scientist, I grow clivias and other plants, have a landrover and a Trans Am. I live in a forest I planted myself." He acknowledged the pressure from the feisty prosecutor in a message on his Facebook account that was apparently posted on Thursday morning. He confirmed its authenticity when questioned by journalists. It read: "Third day in court today. Lets see how much of my credibility, integrity and professional reputation is destroyed. It is difficult to get belief in those who will not listen because it is not what they want to hear. After that, beer!" Whitney Mercilus Jersey . The 31-year-old Russian dominated the No. 3-ranked Ferrer throughout, breaking the defending champion and local favourite four times on the indoor hard court. Jadeveon Clowney Jersey . The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor. http://www.thetexansfootballpro.us/texans-tom-savage-super-bowl-jersey-authentic/ . Dane Dobbie had four goals and two assists, Karsen Leung had two goals and two assists, and Matthew Dinsdale scored two and helped on another for Calgary (6-3). Shawn Evans and Jeff Shattler had eight-point games with a goal and seven assists apiece, and Jon Harnett and Geoff Snider also scored.Omaha, NE (SportsNetwork.com) - Down by two with three seconds to play, Sterling Gibbs hit a contested 3-pointer to help No. 19 Seton Hall slip past Creighton, 68-67, on Saturday. Gibbs paced all scorers with 22 points for the Pirates (13-3, 3-1 Big East), who rebounded after suffering their first Big East loss of the season on Wednesday at Xavier. Khadeen Carrington chipped in 11 points for Seton Hall, and Brandon Mobley added nine points, 13 rebounds and two blocks. In his first career start, James Milliken scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting for the short-handed Bluejays (9-8, 0-4). Creightons top two scorers, Austin Chatman and Isaiah Zierden, combined to play just 19 minutes due to injuries. Will Artino contributed 14 points and 11 boards for the Bluejays. With 7:51 to go, Angel Delgado hit a pair of free throws to put Seton Hall up 54-50. Neither team would lead by more than three the rest of the game. Toby Hegners triple a minute later gave the Bluejays a 55-54 lead, but Jaren Sinas long-distance shot two possessions later returned the lead to the Pirates. Seton Hall held a 65-63 advantage before Artino hit a pair of free throws to even the game. His tip-in off a Milliken miss gave the Bluejays a 67-65 edge withh 17 seconds to play. Kendall Lamm Jersey. . At the other end, Pirates coach Kevin Willard called timeout after 10 seconds of stagnant offense. Gibbs inbounded the ball, got open to receive the return pass from Mobley and spun away from Avery Dingman to create just enough room to hit the go-ahead triple. Milliken got an open look to win the game as time expired, but he was just off the mark. Each team went through droughts from the field in the first half. Creighton hit just two of its first 10 attempts as Seton Hall built up what would be its largest lead of the game at seven points. The Bluejays made four of their last five shots and closed the half on an 8-2 run. Rick Kreklow hit a 3-pointer with a minute to go, and Devin Brooks jumper with three seconds left gave Creighton a 32-30 lead at the break. Game Notes Seton Hall had lost two in a row against Creighton ... The Bluejays shot 51.1 percent, ending a 61-game winning streak when shooting better than 50 percent ... Seton Hall scored 14 points off nine Bluejays turnovers ... Creighton outscored Seton Hall in the paint, 36-22 ...
