    I mean.....in the past I've said your idea of funny is pretty terrible, lol....but you're not annoying.
    No, nobody said anything, just how I was reading it. Maybe I am wrong, its not like I am very good at reading people. One of the reasons I tend to default to taking things people say literally instead of misreading what they intended to say.

      Pretty obvious he did it. The jury **** the bed on that one.

            definitely. There are people who were like "yep, he said he did it, sooooo"

            Plus, he lost the civil case, which means that although not criminally charged, he's directly responsible for the deaths. So that means another jury realized it was seriously ****ed up.

                I believe the burden of proof is vastly different in a criminal vs. civil case.

                    It definitely is, but....even so, to go from a criminal case, where they only tried one person, and did nothing to ever find "the real" killer.....to then just say the guy they tried and found not guilty was ultimately responsible anyway? I mean, it's pretty evident that everyone except the original jury knew the real score.

                    • There were 2 jurors who were featured in the documentary, one of which was an older black woman, and she firmly believed that the jury was going to say not guilty regardless of what evidence was brought to light. She was convinced it was tainted from the get go, just as a means of revenge against 40 years of LAPD abuse.

                      Sad story really....the black community in LA was looking out for him due to previous injustices, but Simpson did not identify with them at all.....he could have cared less about what was going on in lower income areas. Whitest black dude of all time >.<

                        I don't know if you can really blame the jury on that. It is on the prosecutor to provide the proof and with all the screw ups in the investigation, is anybody surprised they couldn't manage it. There are so many instances of the court systems in this country not doling out justice properly, why do people cling to this one so much? We all know the investigators and prosecutors screwed the pooch on this one, move on, nothing else can be done.

                          Gee whiz, 40 years of poor police work lead to not being able to find an unbiased jury from the constituents; shame nobody could have predicted THAT!

                            I agree....but it's the fact that it was the most covered criminal case in the county's history at the time, and for it to be ****ed up to that magnitude is why people "cling" to it.

                              right?!

                              What's crazy is, the prosecutors, during jury selection, didn't fight the fact that they had agreed to a 75% African-American jury. Under normal circumstances, that shouldn't matter. But in 1994 Los Angeles, they should have been more diverse.

                                If you agree, then stop watching the stupid 30 for 30s about it, reading about it, talking about it, fantasizing about it....just get a white bronco and go for a ride.
