Figured I'd add to the stupidity of some of the arguments/discussions I see taking place.
But I'm just curious, OJ is a free man and there we a lot of compelling evidence against him. Was justice done in that case (of course, I suppose that depends on which side of the political spectrum you reside).

I wasn't here for OJ, but GZ took the life of Trayvon Martin to save his own.

I think Zimmerman had stronger evidence against him, but not sure who was guilty outside of Zimmerman. I was too young to follow the trial and actually know what was going on. I do feel that celebrities and people of importance get special treatment in this country though.

Is what it is.


We know that Zimmerman killed Trayvon. We just didn't have details on how it happened. We didn't know for fact that OJ killed his wife and the man. There was strong reason to believe he did it.



Two completely different cases.

I doubt that story. He 1st said the fight was in the grass and that's consistent with the grass stains. It would be extremely tough to lacerate someone's head (in a straight line) while bashing it against the grass. Especially when it is raining.


Zimmerman knew he had the gun when he got out of the car. Trayvon did now. Trayvon knew he did not have a gun for protection when Zimmerman approached him.

Isn't OJ in prison ?

The man savagely murdered 2 people. The blood lead from the scene to his house.

If OJ is in prison, it's not for murder.

There was so much evidence against OJ that it wasn't even funny. That case was screwed up by the prosecution.

Maybe Martin's family should hire Johnny Cochran? (I think he's dead though?)

There was more evidence against OJ than there was against Zimmerman not defending himself. But of course, the only thing that matters to those turning this into a race issue is the skin colors of parties involved.

Yeah, but not for anything to do with killing his wife.

He lived free for several years.

Pretty much the entire defense bunch is dead.

Cockroach Cochran: Check
Kardashian: Check
Flea Bailey: Alive but too old to know it. I thought he, too, had died, but Wiki shows him to be 80.
