O.J. Simpson Jury Out: You Decide

As Tom Petty once sang, "waiting is the hardest part." And 13 years to the day after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder, America once again finds itself on tenterhooks awaiting what could easily be the verdict of the month or maybe even the quarter.

The football legend turned tabloid El Dorado, was not in Clark County court this morning when a jury of nine women and three men began their deliberation. He and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart, are facing 12 counts including kidnapping and robbery stemming from the alleged hotel room invasion and shake down of a sports memorabilia dealer last September in Las Vegas.

Simpson's attorney Yale Galanter contends that his client didn't commit robbery, but merely reclaimed what was rightfully his. Galanter further asserted in his closing arguments that Simpson was in fact the victim of a large scale plot by greedy hangers-on eager to use his notoriety against him.

And so after 12 days of often colorful testimony, secret recordings, and 22 entertaining witnesses, District Court Judge Jackie Glass has dispatched the jury to perform its civic duty.

But as anyone who has seen "12 Angry Men" knows, these kind of things can take some time. So rather than wait, I thought I would put the question to you, our NFL Crime Watch readers. If you were on the jury how would you vote?

Was he there?
Were there guns in the room?
Did he invite the gun toting men?
If the answer to these three questions is
yes....he's guilty.
If he wanted his stuff back, he should have shown up with a bunch of cash as was expected when he set up the meeting.
If indeed he feels the stuff was rightfully his he should have called the police.

Does it concern anyone at all that any U.S. citizen is being tried in the court of public opinion? How dare we suggest "you decide!" when we are not the ones sitting in court daily being presented with evidence, testimony, and legal guidance.
I care too much to vote "couldn't care less" but not a single person reading this has any justification for judging "guilty" or "not guilty."

Maybe this time they'll get him, just for old times sake.

He's as guilty as Goldman is greedy.

Posted by: Abolhassan Bani Sadr | October 3, 2008 5:40 PM

I think OJ was absolutely guilty of the killings - but I think he was set up on this one. He'll probably get convicted - but it's only because he walked on the killings.

Posted by: Kathy | October 3, 2008 5:44 PM

He got away with murder but he won't get away with this one. Sucks to be you Juice!

Posted by: Justice | October 3, 2008 5:45 PM

As much as many of us wish he will be found guilty we need to remember that each case is decided on its own merits. He cannot be punished for what happened 13 years ago. That is why our countrys laws are the way they are. The incident of 13 years ago HAS to be ignored and only the facts of this new trial are to be weighed. And apparently because of the joking of the police caught on tape stating 'we are going to get him' this to me dismisses the entire case. As professionals they should of acted professionally all the way from arrest to trial. I am sorry but the only verdict is Not Guilty. May be down the line the police will learn to shut up and not bamboozle a case with their loose lips.

Posted by: Lee | October 3, 2008 5:47 PM

Why would we be on tenterhooks? Since when is this verdict of national importance?

And why should anyone be voting on the verdict, except for the jury, which actually heard the case?

Why there so many white people rushing in to lynch OJ without looking the facts.

This was a clear set up. Look at the evidence. The cops are laughing about catching him. His so-called friends are plotting to take him down.

People think he got away with murder and they think this is some kind of retribution. Thats BS! He was innocent, back then, the jury found that, case closed. But because he's black people have to go claiming that he got away with murder.

How about all the white people who do get away with all types of crimes, why don't you talk about them. No you have to go 13 years tracking and bankrupting the guy and then setting him up.

This is why Obama probably wont win.

Oh, btw, is the timing just coincidence?

Posted by: Kathy | October 3, 2008 6:05 PM

He's definately guilty of trying to hide assets that leagally belong to family of Ron Goldman. Whether he had a gun or not, though when you burst into someone's Vegas hotel room with 5 big guys trying to "take back" your property, there had to be intimidation involved. Probably assault. Kiddnapping is a bit of stretch but it does sound pretty bad.
Oh and Byron, I am black.

Posted by: Guilty | October 3, 2008 6:06 PM

O.J. Simpson is innocent in this case. There is no criminal intent nor a victim.

The media did not cover this trial like the last one because our "justice system" is a joke. If the people saw what happened in that courtroom, they'd be out-raged!

13 years to the day of his last trial verdict. Apollo 13 wasnt so lucky. Will OJ?

Posted by: Oh Gee OJ | October 3, 2008 6:21 PM

The problem with Simpson isn't the color of his skin. It's his attitude, arrogance, and the belief that he does not have to abide by the law or lifes rules that apply to everyone. He could have taken a policeman to the hotel room but he chose to "Do it my way" and he believes his way is acceptable and he is above the law. He has a problem with that thought process because it only serves to "draw the rockets in on his own location." These are choices he makes out of arrogance and stupidity. It isn't a black thing or a "brother" thing at all. He is a pathetic person and with him it never stops. His pitful declaration of "I'll never stop looking until I find the killers" statement at the murder trial was total B.S. as he has proven by doing NOTHING about finding killers unless they are playing golf somewhere. He is a total fake and everyone is tired of his false presentation of himself.

Posted by: Weber | October 3, 2008 6:29 PM

I'm no fan of Simpson, but these charges of "kidnapping" and "armed robbery" seem ridiculous.

It's clear that what happened is that Simpson went to the room to take back his own stolen property. He brought some muscle with him in case he met with resistance. Whether he knew they had guns or not is unclear. But even if he did, the logical charge is something like assault with a deadly weapon. The current charges of "kidnapping" and "armed robbery" are simply over-the-top, and make the local Nevada authorities look like amateurs trying to hook a big fish.

I really love it when everybody sees what eventually happens when race, and notoriety determine how we treat a person in the court system. During his first trial he recieved special treatment and made a mockery of our legal system with all the idiocy. . I remember being called a raciest when I dared suggest that OJ was nothing more than a thug during his first trial. Well here is the proof that the measure of a man is what he does. Have fun rotting in jail Mr. Simpson, you’re finally are home.

O.J. was lucky to get off on his last trial, only reason he did I believe is from fear of a riot. I don't believe there is any fear of a riot this time. The man is as guilty as SIN he needs to pay the price. I think he deserves the stiffest penalty allowed for this crime.

Posted by: bledsoe 56 | October 3, 2008 6:49 PM

Wow. This is really very important to our lives. Way to go Washington Post. How about trying George Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and the rest of that rotten crowd in the court of public opinion. Better still, try these dirty rogues in the WORLD court of public opinions and allow that same world to decide on the punishment. Ooops. I forgot. This is the Washington Post - xerox machines for the Pentagon.

Posted by: Anonymous | October 3, 2008 6:55 PM

Well I am a white southerner and am not racist. I believe that OJ was innocent in the murder case and I think he is innocent on this one as well. If he is found guilty then the all white jurors are doing it just because they think he was guilty of killing Ron and Nicole. As for just blacks voting for Obama, just isn't true. There are many white people that are for him. I am not one of them but it has nothing to do with his color. I hope that I can scream once again as I did when he was found innocent in 1995 ( The Juice Is Loose!!!)

Yo Mitch...You are a B*tch. I'm black as the ace of spades and you have to be mentally challenged if you think that OJ is now innocent and didn't commit the prior murders. Let me guess, you live in AK and didn't pass the sixth grade. PLEASE!

Posted by: JeffJam | October 3, 2008 7:04 PM

Byron, DC,
OJ was not found "innocent"... he was found "not guilty". There is a HUGE difference. Innocent is when you "did not" do it. Not guilty means they cannot "prove" that you did it. OJ killed them both, or had them killed, but it couldn't be proved beyond a shadow of a doubt. He is nothing but a wife-beating (killing) thug who keeps getting in trouble with the law, and is too stupid to realize that he can't get away with things forever. He should KNOW that his face is known all over the world, and that people are just waiting for justice to finally be served. No-one forced him into this latest caper... he brings it all on himself.
And if he was white, he'd be just as stupid! And famous! Look at Robert Blake... same thing. Famous and stupid! And a wife killer! But he's white, so what do you say to that? And if you are voting for Obama just because he's black, that's very sad. Sounds like you are the racist, not the others on here.

Posted by: Wichita Kid | October 3, 2008 7:04 PM

Why the trial, he will be found not Guilty and walk, again.

Posted by: kabuche | October 3, 2008 7:06 PM

WHO really cares?

Maybe, OJ shouldn't have tried "pimpin" his "here's how I would have killed them" book.

OJ is like so many of the modern pharmaceuticals today with side effects like rectal bleeding, neurological dmg, blood clots, heart attacks...

Just because it sounds good up front doesn't mean the side effects are worth it.

And OJ is just that...an unwanted side effect.

Posted by: Vince Foster | October 3, 2008 7:07 PM

I don't care if he did it or not. I hope he goes down as payback for the murders. Also, I worry an acquittal would fuel an anti-Obama backlash.

Posted by: bitterology | October 3, 2008 7:13 PM

Posted by: Lin | October 3, 2008 7:16 PM

fck

Posted by: ffff | October 3, 2008 7:17 PM

After all is said and done, mostly what we read about OJ is logical "BS" and newspaper sensationalism. I seriously-doubt that the folks making a "guilty" judgment were in the trial room day-by-day listening to the alleged “facts;” nor, were they participating in a desperate act. And, besides that, who gets to say and choose what is or isn't the ONLY right way of retrieving one’s personal items?

Furthermore, the “law” is only a psychological policy enforced by selective autocratic enforcement answering to a plutocracy. Otherwise, it (law) is meaningless except for the believer or those “beat up” by it. Likewise: Aggression, arrogance and/or stupidity, including predatory behavior--are universal phenomena. So, it is silly and/or petty to enable linear-assumptions--which dynamically exclude the man or woman “looking in the mirror.” Hence, OJ’s purview is only one of the many variations of the same thing differently.

Consequently, as far as I am concerned, the folks who are so "unscientifically-ready" to condemn OJ or others should--instead, be reactive to their participation and acquiescence in the deteriorating socio-economic and ecological events effecting their ability to live in the world. --Rooster

OJ should have been hacked to death years ago by some of Ron Goldman's relatives, then his rotting corpse wouldn't be attacking anyone and his murderous presence would long ago have faded into history - where it belongs.

Posted by: R U Kidding | October 3, 2008 7:37 PM

This is pretty irresponsible; how can people who haven't been members of a jury state with any degree of certainty whether he is or is not guilty? This is yellow journalism at its best and is at or below the level of some of those stellar publications like "People" or "Us".

What a waste of publishing space.

Posted by: Header | October 3, 2008 7:39 PM

OJ Simpson should have been sitting in jail for past 13 years ... maybe this time he will get a just verdict and will finally start doing his well deserved time. The man is garbage and he thinks he is above the law. He got away with the first time because he was black, but I dont' think he will be so lucky this time. If he does go to jail, all of you OJ fans shouldn't be sad ... there's still hope that King Obama could pardon him if the king makes to the White House. It's the great African-American way ... blacks should be able to do as they please and it's always someone else's fault.

Posted by: thinker02 | October 3, 2008 7:42 PM

I watched everyday of the previous O.J. case in LA. I am not naive enough to absolutely say that O.J. didn't commit the murders, but I do know that he was framed by the police in that case. The high levels of EDTA found in blood in that case could only have come from a tube pre-coated with EDTA as a blood preservative. I also remember that there were fifteen other murders the same night that Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered. None of those cases got the attention that O.J.'s case received.

Shortly after the verdict was read a poll was taken. Of the people who said that they got their O.J. trial information from the evening news but didn't watch much of the actual trial 75% of white people said the state had proven their case and 25% of black people thought the state had not proven their case, but when only people that stated that they watched most or all of the trial were asked race did not play a role. Only 25% of those that said they watched all or most of the actual trial believed the state had proven their case against O.J. regardless of what race they were. I have a feeling that it will be the same way in the current case.

All O.J. is guilty of is inviting a crazy ghetto thug like Michael McClinton along with him. Anyone that is a fair and honest person that listened to all of the tapes and all of the witnesses in this case would have to admit that O.J. had no criminal intent in this case.

After O.J. and C.J. are found not guilty the judge should through out the guilty pleas of Charles Cashmore and Charles Ehrlich and instruct the prosecutors to drop all charges against them. There is no reason that these two men should have felony convictions from this case.

And OJ bought his justice last time with the "Dream Team" Notice this time he does not have a huge table of lawyers. Just one! He his going down this time!

I personally can not wait to close the book on the whole OJ thing. He is too big on himself and thinks the laws of the land do not apply to him. WAKE UP OJ... Reality is about to come crashing down on you!

Oh come on this is obviously not a grand jury. You should not get so caught up with your emotions. This is just a way to see what other's opinions are. This will not be used as a means for the jury to decide if he is guilty or not. Have fun and answer the question if you think he is guilty or not.

Posted by: Mrs Harris | October 3, 2008 8:03 PM

D.Raven,

I watched all of this trial also, but if anything O.J. has a better attorney this time than his so called "Dream Team". You must not have been watching very closely or you would know that O.J. has had two attorneys at the table the entire trial, plus I am sure they have others doing research behind the scene. God forbid that I ever need a criminal lawyer, but if I ever do my first call will to Yale Galanter.

Just Because He's Black

A white man asked his black friend, 'Are you voting for Barack Obama
just because he's black?'

The black man responded by saying, 'Why not? Hell, in this country men
are pulled over everyday just cause they're black; passed over for
promotions just cause they're black; considered to be criminals just
cause they're black; and there are going to be thousands of you who
won't be voting for him just because he's black! However, you do not
seem to have a problem with that! This country was built with the sweat
and whip off the black slaves' back, and now a descendent of those same
slaves has a chance to lead the same country, where we weren't even
considered to be people, where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink
from the same water fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or even
vote. So yes! I'm going to vote for him! But it's not just because he's
black, but because he is hope, he is change, and he now allows me to
understand when my grandson says that he wants to be president when he
grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal. He now sees,
understands and knows that he can achieve, withstand and do ANYTHING just because he's black!'

Posted by: Joseph Hans | October 3, 2008 8:33 PM

Wouldn't a reasonable punishment be that O.J. forfeit his right to the items he took, (possibly they should go to the Goldman's settlement). What really was happening here is O.J. was trying to get items back that would probably have been taken by the Court in the Civil case...like his Heisman trophy. It seems to me that by having all of these items go towards the Civil case...this is sufficient loss for what O.J. was really trying to do. I don't know if what he was trying to do (get these items without authorities knowing), rises to a prison sentence.

Posted by: Clay | October 3, 2008 8:36 PM

Posted by: TK | October 3, 2008 9:01 PM

I watched the trial on CNN's live feed. If I were a juror I would vote Not Guilty (I am white, for those interested). Listen to the tape. Does anyone "react" to a gun? No. If someone pulled a gun on me I certainly would say (more likely yell) SOMETHING.

OJ was there for a friend's wedding. Another man set up the confrontation, recorded it and sold his story in various places for $210,000. One of the parties in the case was caught on tape offering to do really well testifying against Simpson if he was paid enough. Other than the one guy who stood trial with him all of the others involved were given deals to testify against him.

One of the "victims" is heard on tape admitting to who had taken the items. OJ is heard telling the others to not take anything that wasn't his.

As far as why the police were not involved, they didn't WANT to be involved. The police and FBI were both notified of the stolen items and offered no assistance.

What he did was stupid, but stupid is not against the law. These charges were SUPER trumped up and if the jury convicts him, they are breaking the law and punishing him for the earlier case.

The Justice system will never find any one innocent, only guilty or not guilty. Like most Americans, I don't have the money to disprove my guilt with my own group of experts.

The police, crime-lab , prosecutor, has almost unlimited resources to gather evidence of guilt and can charge me with 20 crimes stemming from one incident, knowing that the jury will find something to stick.

It's the heighth of pandering, irresponsible and wrong-headed to ask people who have not heard the testimony to come to a decision on a criminal case. What kind of message does that send about the integrity of the judicial system -- that an uninformed judgement is as good as a juror's informed judgement?

These are little less than "pluralities of ignorance" as are most polls. However, when a person is wronged he or she has access to the justice system to recover lost or stolen objects. We are either a people of law or we are not.

The larger more important question is, shouldn't Congress vote on a bail-out bill for simpson? look how much money he has paid california lawyers, and they want a 7 billion dollar bail out now. isn't an icon like O.J. Simpson due something for his trouble?

It is justice upside down!!! Instead of the robber, the owner is going to go to prison because he used "force"!! This is a kind of justice Blacks in America faced the last three hundred years. White America can't swallow the fact that for the first time ever, a Black man, suspected of "killing" a white woman was found not guilty!! The current drama is an excuse to lock him up for the rest of his life for what happened more than ten years ago.

I'm tired of apologists who claim that Afro-Americans "can't be racists," as though their historical collective suffering somehow gives them a free pass. I'm for equal rights and equal opportunities for EVERYONE - no exceptions! Racism towards Caucasians or Native Americans or Asians or Latinos is exactly the same thing as racism towards Afro-Americans. Until all of us embrace true equality, we'll never be free of racial oppression. Passing it back and forth and endlessly blaming one another just doesn't work.

I'm supporting Obama in every way I can and I yearn for his fresh leadership, and I share his vision and hope of making America worthy of our pride once again. President Barack Obama will bring us together and restore our moral standing in world affairs. He will help our nation recover from the damage caused by eight years of de-facto-president Cheney's greed, self-service and arrogant spite.

As for OJ, he is a fallen hero to many, a truly sad and pathetic old man who - as several people previously noted - believes that he is above the law. Our hearts should not be filled with vengeance towards him. If the jury finds him guilty, he should receive the same sentence as anyone else under the same circumstances. What would be fair? In my opinion, perhaps a year in the county lockup. This wasn't exactly the crime of the century.

And if the jury finds him not guilty, then for heaven's sake let it go! Having to live with what he has done and who he has become is enough punishment for anyone.

What a lot of intelligent comments! Thinking someone would listen and seriously consider the childish remarks regarding the Simpson trial. Misspelled words, poor grammar, incorrect meaning of words, just to mention a few. A decided lack of understanding of American Laws and Procedures. Yes, I think he is a pig, but that's not illegal, that's the problem with a large portion of our population. Name calling online is like spitting on each other in the sand box. Now to facts: I watched and listened to a large portion of the case. The decision point for me was when the main witness for DA Roger first stated "they stormed into the room" and later in cross examination he responded to the question "What was your state of mind when they came into the room?" by saying "I first thought they were Policemen because of the orderly way they filed into the room!"............Sorry, can't have it both ways when swearing to tell the truth. That was the first of a series of lies from the DA's witnesses....BTW, I'm white, lawful, a former Federal Official, and 78 years old.

America: guilty until proven innocent, kangaroo courts, draconian sentencing for minor offenses, trumped-up charges, "counts" mutiplied so there is no chance you are not indicted, cops trained in brutal and violent intimidation, psychotic juries, judges and prosecutors, the highest prison population in the world with thousands of innocents, victims of drug use and minor offenders jailed for decades along with murderers and career criminals. Capital punishment is leveled with a perverse cold blooded sadism by the real criminals, the judges, prosecutors and legislators of a facist state. America's so called "justice" system is a restoration of slavery for profit. It is an attack on the ordinary citizen and is designed to create an endless supply of "criminals" for a multi-billion dollar corporate penal industry. The "justice" system is a travesty of anything remotely resembling fairness and is comparable with Stalin's gulag system and the worst dictatorships in history.

WASHINGTON - Many people know that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's father was from Kenya and his mother from Kansas.

But an intriguing sliver of his family history has received almost no attention until now: It appears that forebears of his white mother owned slaves, according to genealogical research and census records.

The records - which had never been addressed publicly by the Illinois senator or his relatives - were first noted in an ancestry report compiled by William Addams Reitwiesner, who works at the Library of Congress and practices genealogy in his spare time. The report, on Reitwiesner's Web site, carries a disclaimer that it is a "first draft" - one likely to be examined more closely if Obama is nominated.

According to the research, one of Obama's great-great-great-great grandfathers, George Washington Overall, owned two slaves who were recorded in the 1850 census in Nelson County, Ky. The same records show that one of Obama's great-great-great-great-great-grandmothers, Mary Duvall, also owned two slaves.

The Sun retraced much of Reitwiesner's work, using census information available on the Web site ancestry.com and documents retrieved by the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, among other sources. The records show that Overall, then 30, owned a 15-year-old black female and a 25-year-old black male, while Mary Duvall, his mother-in-law, owned a 60-year-old black man and a 58-year-old black woman. (Slaves are listed in the 1850 census by owner, age, "sex," and "colour," not by name.)

An Obama spokesman did not dispute the information and said that the senator's ancestors "are representative of America."

"While a relative owned slaves, another fought for the Union in the Civil War," campaign spokesman Bill Burton said last night. "And it is a true measure of progress that the descendant of a slave owner would come to marry a student from Kenya and produce a son who would grow up to be a candidate for president of the United States."

The research traces the Duvalls to Mareen Duvall, a major land owner in Anne Arundel County in the 1600s. The inventory of his estate in 1694 names 18 slaves, according to a family history published in 1952.

The records could add a new dimension to questions by some who have asked whether Obama - who was raised in East Asia and Hawaii and educated at Columbia and Harvard - is attuned to the struggles of American blacks descended from West African slaves.

"The twist is very interesting," said Ronald Walters, a political scientist who is director of the African-American Leadership Institute at the University of Maryland, College Park. "It deepens his connection with the experience of slavery, even if it deepens it on a different side of the equation."

Gary Boyd Roberts, a senior research scholar at the New England Historic Genealogical Society who published a book on the family lineage of presidents, said he did not think the slave-holding history was "particularly unusual."

"If you have a white Southern mother, or a mother from the middle states who has ancestry in the South, it doesn't strike me that that should be very surprising," he said. While the majority of such families did not own slaves, many with some wealth did, Roberts said.

Reitwiesner's research identifies two other presidential candidates, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former Democratic Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, as descendants of slave owners. Three of McCain's great-great-grandfathers in Mississippi owned slaves, including one who owned 52 in 1860. Two ancestors of Edwards owned one slave each in Georgia in 1860.

It was unclear last night whether Obama was aware of any slave-holding ancestors, but he makes no mention of them in his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.

The book contains many approving references to his mother's side of the family. At one point, he writes that his mother "could give voice to the virtues of her midwestern past and offer them up in distilled form."

The memoir, however, comes close to confirming the Overall-Duvall lineage - stopping a generation short. Census and other records complete the gaps.

In a reference to his American ancestry, Obama writes "while one of my great-great-grandfathers, Christopher Columbus Clark, had been a decorated Union soldier, his wife's mother was rumored to have been a second cousin of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy."

Clark was actually Obama's great-great-great-grandfather, according to Reitwiesner's research and census data available at ancestry.com. A 1930 census document lists Clark, 84, living in the same El Dorado City, Kan., household as a 12-year-old great-grandson, Stanley A. Dunham. Dunham was Obama's grandfather.

Clark's wife, Susan, was the daughter of George Washington Overall, the latest known family slave owner.

Who is talking about the history of slavery here? Weren't we talking about OJ Simpson, a priviledged man of millions, who abused his wife and chose to murder her and her friend in cold blood??

To bring a detailed discussion of slavery into this, is to do that topic grave injustice.

OJ--You got away once, but once a criminal, always a criminal...guess you just couldn't help yourself. You should definitely have your own page in the Guiness Book of World Records for the most stupid acts ever committed.

Anybody pronouncing him guilty is just a lynch mob terrorist and would be the first lynched themselves if there is chaos in the country. You have no right to pronounce anybody guilty. So think twice before you start shrieking since that makes you a terorist and the same as the Rwandans when they attacked their neighbors with machetes and causing a million deaths. This was clearly a redneck kangaroo court which makes America no better than Sudan or Nazi Germany.

Posted by: El | October 5, 2008 2:55 PM

First, if those items were his as his lawyers said, there are legal ways to go about getting them back, and if he didn't want to go the "legal" route because he was also hiding much of is "stuff" from the law for fear of having to turn it over to the Goldman's lawsuit, certainly, there was a way other than a "hotel room invasion" with a bunch of your best buddies playing thugs".....please....OJ...a victim.....only very willingly indeed....

The situation that OJ willingly put himself in was dangerous to all parties involved including innocent bystanders....

This is not how law abidig citizens go about retrieving their property from another....

he is a guilty as I am innocent of these charges...

Posted by: rann | October 6, 2008 11:03 AM

The guilty verdict was based on the Nicole Simpson/Ron Goldman case. Period. OJ can't get an unbiased jury in this country over the age of 15. Change of venue couldn't even help him, unless the case was moved to West Africa!!

Posted by: dcp | October 6, 2008 11:22 AM

He should have called the police, had them escort him and his unarmed men to the room. Like a person said regarding the case, If someone stole your purse or wallet and you saw it in the front seat of a car and broke in the car to get it you would still be guilty of breaking into that car. O.J should have realize that although he was aquitted 13 years ago he was on parole in the public eye for the rest of his life. If I were him I would not even tried to pee in a dirty alley knowing that the public will love nothing better but to see his butt in jail. I think the jururs were wrong in answering a survey stating that they were thinking about the 1994 case when they deliberated. That gives any defendant, even the notorious O.J sound grounds for a successful appeal.

If you were a juror you would be excused. You are still making reference to the murder case. That means if a mother accused O.J of molesting her child you would be willing to find him guilty to punish him for what you feel he got away with. Thats not how the law should work. Would you want the justice system to handle you or your love one that way? And race does have something to do with it. Its why O.J is found guilty and Phil Specter is not. Its why you still care about O.J getting his due but you dont care about Robert Blake getting away with the same thing. Robert who you may ask? You probably forgot that he was acquitted on a murder case that was more a slam dunk than O.J's. Phil Specter just beat his second murder case of one of his girlfriends just last summer. Do you care about those cases and those people getting theirs like you do O.J.? If not, ask yourself why? Its because O.J is the black celeb who was on trial for killing a white woman and beat it. Something that had never happened before in the American justice system and was a shocker to all white people that it happened then. Whites got a taste of what its actually like to be something other than white that day and they have never forgotten it. Thats why cops are still eger to arrest him, collegues are eager to turn on him and the public is cheering his demise. In the end I still blame O.J, not the jury, not you or the public because he should have known that no one was really on his side from the start. He is by far, the most hated man by whites in this country and would be for the rest of his days. Even now he has been convicted whites will be outraged if he does not get life. Why? Because they want the punishment to fit the crime they feel he committed 13 years ago and got away with. There is no objectivity with whites and the justice system when it comes to O.J Simpson. Bend and break all the rules as long as it leads to him getting his in the end. He should have known this before he pulled a bonehead stunt like thinking he could approach anyone in a threatening way.

I guess we have to pass the white mans litmus test and become so anti black that we can convince you whites that we are not partial to our own. I think O.J was wrong for approaching these guys even though they were low lives themselves. He should be found guilty but the charges, guilt and punishment should fit his actions that day, not for what we may think he got away with.

Tell that crap to the loved ones of all the blacks that were killed by whites in this country. God Damm, one black man gets away or acquitted in a murder case almost 15 years ago and the whole white race is up in arms and cant move on. How come you people never get when a white guy beats a wrap. How come you care more about OJ than lets say Scooter Libby? Robert Blake, Phil Specter? Then you have the freekin nerve to try to justify your partiality based on race by blaming black people. White people have gotten away with the same thing you accuse O.J of hundreds of times. Tell the family of Emmit Teal about the black american way. Tell the families of all the blacks lynched in this country in the name white supremacy about the black american way. You bast@rds dont know what injustice is. The O.J case in 94 was just an example of what whites have been getting away with for years and will still get away with. He is in jail now, The one damm black guy that got acquitted for a crime against a white person in the whole history of the united states is now going to serve life in prison for a trying to get his own stolen items back. Can white people finally have confidence in the justice system again. Its a shame that it took O.J Simpson to show you how it feels to be black in the justice system and you white idiots still missed the point. Stop using blacks to justify your own bigotry. You would have thought whites were the ones who were slaves, discriminated against for years, barred from public places and voting rights, segregated from schools and for the first time in this country's history actually have someone from their race running for president. PLEASE STOP PLAYING WHITE VICTIMS IN A WHITE COUNTRY! You sound like a bunch of crybabbies. Its a white mans country and all I hear is white people complaining about their race being mistreated. Maybe you will be happy If all the blacks go back to being sharecroppers on your farms. Excuse us for actually being able to hire a good lawyer who can actually get us acquitted from a murder case like whites can. The nerve of O.J. He should have gone to jail 13 years ago like all the other black people do when they are accused of a crime. But dont worry white people, all is well now, O.J was found guilty. The world is all good now.

And yes Angus, the king of all Idiots. Now what? The next time whites want to consider themselves color blind, just go to these post read them and then reconsider your statements. You have a long way to go, you want to play racist and victim at the same time. You want to vote against Obama, even when some of you would not vote for McCain if he were running against anyone other than Obama yet accuse every black person voting for Obama as being racist. Is that why white people vote for white candidates in elections? Because of race? Why did blacks vote for Kerry in 04? There were two blacks running for president then. No white person wants to address that question yet they have the nerve to say blacks only vote for Obama because he is black. We unlike some of you are not sheep, we vote based on issues, not color. Dont believe me, ask Al Sharpton or Alan Keys. They both ran for president.

O.J should be found guilty of conspiring to commit a crime of armed robbery. But his co-conspirators should all go down with him. In those videos did it look like OJ was forcing any of them to go with him? O.J is not a mob boss folks. Those guys had no problem grabbing weapons and going up to that room. They had the same choices O.J did, yet they are not being held responsible for their actions. Why are they not facing the same charges seeing they are the ones who actually had the guns? Thats what makes it seem like justice is not served. What it shows is an unarmed O.J can get life with no gun while his co conspirators get off. The guys with the stolen items were made to be innocent victims. That is what I have a problem with, selective justice. Justice against O.J but the rest of you can go free. Now if they were low life enough to go with Simpson, rob and kidnap these men at gun point, why in the hell would you not be locking them up with O.J? I guess they will go back to being law abeiting citizens? Now they will still be crooks and low lives, just not O.J. Thats the only thing they were innocent of, not being O.J. I say the whole group should have gone to jail. How can you send the one guy who was not armed to jail and allow all the other guys to go free? This case would make no sense to you people if anyone other than O.J were involved. But I understand that when it comes to him rational logic does not have a place in you peoples minds, just get O.J. no matter how. Even if they let everyone else involved go as long as he doesn't beat the rap is how you people look at it. But there are no white racist people in america, just the blacks. Just look at that racist Obama, He makes Trent Lott look like Nelson Mandela according to some of you. He is racist by association. A new spin in todays society. Apparently if a black person even knows another black that says something racially controversial that makes them racist by association. Now whites on the other hand can continue to say racist things but that does not make them racist, they are just stating the facts in their minds. Like Geraldine Ferraro. She was just telling the truth, right white people?
