I Remember the Oj Simpson Verdict

Where were you when OJ was pronounced not guilty... 981 People

    Miscarriage Of Justice

    I remember the OJ Simpson verdict very clearly. I was in my dining room at home. I had been following the trial on Sky TV and when the verdict was finally being delivered I remember the Chief Juror stumbling over the name Orenthal, then she said "Not guilty" and I was so angry...

    48th And O St. Lincoln Ne

    I was sitting in my car, heading to a sales appointmen. I was very happy with the verdict and was jumping up and down in my  seat. Probably the white person in the country who thought he wasn't guilty.

    The Bigots Came Out Of The Woodwork

    The day O.J. was acquitted. I dare any of these outraged citizens to say they would've given the slightest damn if he'd been accused of murdering his first wife. Look at the fact that Robert Blake got to go home in relative peace, without the references in the media, on sitcoms...

     I was only 13 when O.J.'s verdict was read and made official, only in the 7th grade at the time and was actually in school in one of my afternoon classes while this was unfolding. To be honest with you, I didn't think he was guilty on the basis of the prosecution's case against...

    That trial represented what money and a team of lawyers can buy for a person. I am glad Karma came back around in time to catch him in this life. I mean seriously, he wrote a book called: "If I Did It" for crying out loud, that's pretty much spitting in the faces of everyone...
