    O.J. Simpson: If I Did It

    Okay, there were two interesting articles in my newspaper today.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15066202/

    He's just rubbing it in now.

    If there were better prosocuters and if the crime scene would have been taken care of better than perhaps he would be behind bars but, some people decided to do things half assed and now he has the right to give a big FU to anyone he wants.

    Yeah, I heard about that. It's really messed up. And it's going to sell like hotcakes.

    I wonder if "proceeds of crime" will apply given that he was acquitted...

    The funny thing is, half-assed police work or not, if any of us had been in his situation we'd be behind bars right now.

    Must be nice to be rich enough to buy your way out of trouble.

    I find it hard not to laugh at what that fella is getting away with, I'll always remember his as Det. Nordberg from Naked Gun. :grin:

    Is it a case that the rich can afford justice while the normal can't?

    He is just making some bucks, the American way! :D

    Edit: i wonder about the jury sometimes, OJ should really send each a free copy of his book. They must be feeling complete ***holes now.

    So you read the Enquirer hey?

    Don't get me wrong, I don't doubt he did it nor do I doubt that the Enquirer would be the first to get the 'scoop'.

    I just have a very short fuse when it comes to tabloid 'journalism'.

    I also have little faith in the accuracy of a story that can not be proven right or wrong. I also question the accuracy of a story that made him 3 big ones.

    All in all, I would not spend the 25 cents on what is most likely a fictional story written by a crap author published by a company that could care less if what goes in between the front and back cover is accurate or not. So long as it sells their craptastic paper.

    Not wanting to get in to specifics but didn't the Jury have no other option considering all the evidence was thrown out?

    No i do not think so, to me it sounded more like poor old innocent OJ, he was framed by a racist policeman.

    But wasn't that people the police had planted a glove in the crime scene to "put the nail in the coffin"?

    The article is from MSNBC. It refers to an Inquirer article.

    Well, he does owe the families of his victim's like 30 million from the civil trial, so I suspect they should get most of it. I doubt they will, but they should.

    Which, in my mind, does cast some suspicion on the story.

    If it's true, I'm apalled.

    I think they would. He won't lose the money from the "proceeds of crime" thing since that's designed for paying restitution to the families of criminal victims. But since he has a huge debt from the wrongful death suit, I can't see how he can dodge paying out any money he gets in by spending it quickly. Besides, he'd have to spend it Brewster's Millions style by not buying anything that could get repossessed.

    Can someone explain to me how a person aquitted of murder in criminal court can be found liable in civil court. He either did it or he didn't. Or he didn't but he's still responsible? One jury says he didn't do but another says he did. I'm confuzzled.

    In a criminal case the jury must decide beyond a reasonable doubt. In a civil case it is decided by the proponderance of the evidence. That means only 51% sure he did it.

    So they had to throw the evidence out because they fooked up?
