Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius is a free man, for now.

Pistorius was released on bail on Friday and is currently staying with his uncle.

The blade runner admitted he shot model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp because he thought she was a burglar.

South African locals are reacting to the accused shooter being in jail for only eight days.

Pistorius has expressed his need to talk to the Steenkamp family.

He is due back in court on June 4th.

Until then he must see a psychiatrist and report to a police station twice a week.
