Be under someone’s control


The land is under the state control.

You are under your girlfriend’s control. That is, you obey her.


Someone or something is conserved and supervised by authorities such as state.



In today’s class, we discuss the news which happened during summer vocation. I and Chiaki talked about Oscar Pistorius, who killed his girlfriend. He is double-amputee runner. When he was in bed, he found someone being in shower room. He mistook the person for a theft, and he shot with a gun. But, the person was his girlfriend. He is in trial now. The issue is whether he is guilty or not. That he killed one person is the hard-and-fast fact. But, he killed her by mistake. The sentences was that he was cleared of premeditated murder but he was found guilty of culpable homicide. I think it is difficult to judge someone. The fact is more important than the motive ?
