Today's testimony suggests that OP could well cry like a woman. That doesn't seem such a trump-card for the defence. It's in the essential nature of crying that it can often have an androgynous quality. Strangulated high-pitched squeaks are naturally produced by the lachrymose of either sex.
Screaming like a woman is a whole different thing, though. Reports of OP's effeminate blubbing ought not be extrapolated into a presumption that he screams similarly. Since this matter could well be pivotal to the outcome of the trial, I don't think it'll be sufficient for Roux just to wheel in a witness who says "Yeah he screams like a woman. I've heard it." If it's important to the defence that the judge and her advocates are persuaded that it is so, OP is probably going to have to demonstrate his screaming style in court, I should think.
I watch a lot of cricket (in person). The sound of bat on ball - if it's a really well-timed, full-blooded stroke - can sound a little bit like a gunshot. Much more so if it's coming your way, I've noticed. I still think there's something fundamentally different about the timbre, though, and it's difficult to imagine that you'd really confuse the two sounds.
But it sounds a lot more like a gunshot than the sound of a bat on a wooden door does. An angry batsman - perhaps disgruntled at having been wrongly given out by the umpire - will sometimes clout any woodwork within reach once he's off the field. Over the years I reckon I've heard enough batsmen savaging dressing-room doors with their bats (from a distance of maybe 80 metres) to be able to tell you that it's absolutely nothing like a gunshot. (I'm not around guns all that much, but I've heard urban gunfire on a few occasions while staying at a mate's flat in London). The cricket-bat-on-door sound has none of the explosive quality that gunfire often (though not always) has, nor any suggestion of what might be described as a loud report or a rifle-crack. It hasn't got that tight, percussive feel that some other types of gunfire have, either. It's a dull, leaden thud, with - crucially, I think - instant decay. Closer, if anything, to the sound of a bat hitting a cardboard box, only with more grunt behind it. I really think we can forget about that one."
Lerena: Oscar apologised, asked Fresco something like 'please take the blame for me, there's too much media..Zu seinen Taten zu stehen ist nicht grad seine Stärke - offensichtlich!
