Good looking, well liked, athletic, famous, wealthy.... he could have had any woman he wanted and he goes and does that to Nicole and Ron with his own children inside that house sleeping. It never made any sense what he did. He could have at least confessed when he knew he was terminal but he was too selfish for that.

Now he's dead.

Well, to show how stupid/gullible/naive I was, I was in my early 40's when the the trial took place, and I think I would have voted to acquit, too, because of the testimony of the copy who admitted that evidence was often (?) placed and because the glove didn't fit and was portrayed as being a racist. Also, I would have thought that of all the blacks that were wrongly convicted, it wouldn't make me lose sleep if a black man who was guilty was actually let go if I had been on the jury. (I'm a white woman, btw.)

Yeah, I know -- mea culpa.

For OJ I say R.I.S.--rest in the shame you brought upon yourself.
I was surprised as well.

My cousin and his wife were both ADAs. His wife had twice taken part in small group activities at conferences where the group was led by Marcia Clark, and she was impressed with Marcia.

I remember seeing an interview with someone whose name I never caught, but he was an older black man who had been part of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. It was months after the trial was over, and the interviewer said something to the effect that that OJ Simpson seemed to be having trouble maintaining the kind of support from the black community that had been behind him during the trial.

The man laughed and said, "OJ's realizing that his support from the community was a mile wide--and an inch deep."

No great loss at all.

I've said this before.. There would be no true justice in the universe if Ron Goldman didn't live to get to see OJ dead.

And to touch on what someone posted earlier.. It's a tragedy that Norm MacDonald died before OJ.

During the trial, I was stationed at Andrews AFB in Maryland. Verdict day I was in Anacostia at Bolling AFB. I had to do a lot of paperwork in an office that employed a lot of SE DC civilians in its' work force. About a half hour before the reading of the verdict, 1 of the employees plugged in a small, portable TV set.

From the new bits & pieces I saw on the news, it sure looked like OJ had motive and the appearance of guilt hung around him.

Everyone was going about their business until everything stopped. You could hear a pin drop as the verdict was being read. Customers like me were on 1 side of the counter. The office employees were on the other side.

When the verdict was revealed, the office side of the room exploded in celebration. The folks on my side of the counter just looked at each other in silence. It was hard to process at the time the revelry that this single event brought to some people.

That sure was 1 of those teaching moments for me in my lifetime about race relations in America. It was surreal how 2 diverse groups interpreted the same information based on a single personal characteristic trait.

Drom what I see these days I don't think celebrity is necessary to give many people an outsized sense of entitlement.

Ok, I'll open this can of worms. I don't think he did it. Even today. No proof whatsoever except for past domestic issues with Nicole. Nobody placed hm there. After the butchering both Ron and Nicole took when they passed, OJ only had a small cut on one finger. Again no proof, Just emotional, knee jerk reaction from arm chair lawyers.
