In a video from the TODAY show, NBC national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen showed the demonstration that occurred after the defense claimed that “based on injuries and the bullet pattern there is just no way,” that the crime happened the way the prosecution claims.
“May I invite the court to observe,” the prosecutor countered, and the Judge left the bench, escorted by a security guard holding her hand to stand near the bathroom set that was built in the courtroom.
“The prosecution sprayed chemicals to illuminate the laser beams tracking the trajectory of the 4 bullets through the door,” Rossen reported.
Separately, NBC interviewed officials who said that should he be jailed, Pistorius’ prosthetic legs pose a security risk.
If he is permitted to wear the metal ones other inmates may “sharpen them and using them as knives,” and if he wears the plastic ones the inmates could “use them as a club.”
