Other than O.J.'s children and the families of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, who cares?

I care that this guy sliced up and brutally murdered two human beings and is now playing golf and sipping ice tea in a mansion as free as you and I.

I don't know whether or not he did it, and honestly, I'm not sure how most people have arrived at their opinion on the question. It seemed, at the time, as though everyone had an opinion on whether or not he had committed the murders, but almost no one had seen any evidence save for the helicopter video of the white Bronco racing along the freeway. And for most people, those opinions persist, though I can't think of a single person I've met that's given the matter more than a cursory glance in the meantime.The whole thing is more interesting to me as a test case of popular psychology than as a criminal case in itself, particularly given that popular psychology seems to have derailed the legal process.

It would be a rather lengthy discussion as to why almost everyone believes he did indeed slaughter those two people.

I think there is no conclusive evidence that the man actually put a knife into two people. However, the circumstantial evidence is simply overwhelming that he was involved somehow in some way, whether we was there or hired someone else to do it, who knows. Maybe he did actually do it himself, but unfortunately, based on the evidence, the jury really had no other options. The trial was a fiasco and the PD botched so much of the investigation. It is pretty sad that the OJ simpson verdict essentially became the JFK assination of the 90s in that most people remember where they were when the verdict was announced. I as SO friggin glad when it was over. That trial started me down the path of eliminating television from my life which I did a few years later.

OJ does it for me. A glass every morning seems to revitalize me and give me so much energy.Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.Once you perceive the irrevocable truth, you can no longer justify the irrational denial. - Mr. P.The pain in hell has two sides.
