That jury would've never found him guilty, even if there was video evidence of him doing it.

No. No, he didn't

From TMZ:

UPDATE: 12:58 PM PT -- We just spoke to Kato in Beverly Hills, and he insists he NEVER did an interview saying OJ murdered his wife. He says he has no idea where the quotes came from, adding, "I would never say something like this."

Kato Kaelin just told TMZ ... he NEVER told the New York Post that he knows OJ Simpson murdered his wife or that he's only coming forward now because the statute of limitations on perjury has run.

Kato says he was shocked when he read the report which quoted him as saying, "The statute of limitations has now passed ... so I can now say ... yes, he did it."

Kato tells TMZ ... he never said any of those things to reporter Cindy Adams or anyone else.

Kato says he has expressed his opinion over the years ... that he THINKS Simpson killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman ... but tells us, "I have no first hand knowledge."

OJ didn't get off because he was "popular" or "rich", OJ got off because the LAPD is inept and handled the crime scene like a circus sideshow.

It doesn't matter if DNA is 1 in a trillion, when random people have traipsed through your crime scene, anyone could have planted it, and it cold have legitimately come from anyone . Because of that, the evidence was tainted, pure and simple. The OJ defense team just took good advantage of that.

THIS.

OJ didn't "win", the DA lost because of sloppy police work.

Good. That's the way the system is supposed to work. The burden of proof is on the accuser and if you can't get your act together, then take a walk. If it were easy for the DA to put people away and take away their freedom and life, it better not be a cakewalk.

Exactly this. The DA was also incompetent, getting some pretty damning evidence thrown out because they 'forgot' to give it to the defense beforehand. They're also the ones that came up with the bright idea to have OJ try the dried up bloody glove on in front of the jury.

The jury came up with the proper verdict based on what the jury had to consider, which was not everything you heard on the evening news...the average viewer had more evidence to consider than the jury did. There was reasonable doubt, they acquitted, which is how the system is supposed to work.

That and prosecutorial idiocy. You have to be a farking idiot to let the defendant try on the wrinkled bloody gloves while wearing latex gloves. Not only that, you let him decide when they don't fit? There's not a bailiff around who can say "Listen O.J., we can tell you're not even trying. Pull that shiat harder, you won the Heisman?" That racist cop didn't help matters either. I honestly think this was L.A. county deciding to make amends for the travesty that was the Rodney King verdict, or at the very least trying to prevent mass riots at the expense of one guilty man free.

So many reasons that travesty happened.

It was a combination of both. Had LAPD properly handled the case (and particularly had Kalin testified against him) he could have gone to jail. However even with the poor handling, he probably would have been convicted had he just been some guy. Chris Rock was fairly accurate in saying if he drove a bus he wouldn't be OJ, he'd be "Orenthal the bus driving murderer."

--His fame meant that people knew him in a favourable light, they'd seen him as an actor and sports star before seeing him as a defendant. Part of the problem criminal defendants face is the first impression a jury has of them is unfavourable, they believe that the person must be bad to have gotten themselves there. His fame counteracted that.

--His wealth allowed him to hire a grade-A defense team, that could find and seize on every problem, every flaw with the prosecution's case in a way that a public defender may not have been able to (don't think they are bad, they aren't but there are limits to their resources). Also they were very with turn of phrase to stick it in the jury's mind (such as the famous "if the glove does not fit" line).

--The LAPD's farkups allowed for the jury to have reasonable doubt. They may well have believed he did it, but the farkups were enough that it was reasonable to doubt he did, and thus the jury could find him innocent.

Take away any of those, unlikely he'd get off.

Huh? what does this have to do with the evidence that he provided? His opinion about if he thinks OJ did it is irrelevant. He just provided a time line in which he was actually with OJ and about hearing some noises near his A/C unit. He can't give testimony about another s state of mine. Nor can he give testimony about what he did not see. It is up to the Jury to decide guilt or innocence.

You're right, a normal guy couldn't have afforded a defense team that could have capitalized on this as well though.

Given the circumstances the Jury came to the right decision. He probably did it, but the system is designed to protect the innocent even if it means letting some of the bad guys get away.

By the same token, George Zimmerman should probably be found not guilty, even though he probably committed manslaughter at least.

It's not perfect, but it's better than the alternative. If you don't believe that, go ahead and find yourself as a defendant in Italy where you have to prove your innocence rather than the prosecution needing to prove your guilt, and then tell me how you feel.

OJ would have gotten off no matter what because some of the jurors had already decided that they would not convict him before the trial even got started (according to TV interviews of jurors soon after the trial). The screwed up police work just gave them a valid justification for acquittal.

Fun facts: Nicole and her other socialite friends called BJs a "Brentwood Hello," and several other waiters at Goldman's restaurant were (ALLEGEDLY!) banging her, to the point where they used to draw straws when she'd call for someone to "deliver" something, like "oops... left my sunglasses there again!".

Also, it's so farking obvious that OJ did it -- biggest legal farkup of my lifetime.

Also #2 - Kato was his (ALLEGED!) drug dealer / "party planner." He had a lot of reasons to keep his farking mouth shut. The last time I saw him anywhere, he was hosting Hawaiian Tropic party videos. That was at least seven years ago.

One friend thinks OJ was framed and innocent. Me I think he's guilty and the LAPD tried to frame him.

More seriously a friend who grew up in LA before moving north to Santa Cruz said the LAPD and the Prosecutors office aren't used to defendants that don't just roll over and plead out. It means the police are sloppy with the evidence trail. The police let officers whose credibility is an issue... *cough* Fuhrman *cough* touch the evidence trail. And the Prosecutors are out of their league when faced with a competent defense.

gibbon1: More seriously a friend who grew up in LA before moving north to Santa Cruz said the LAPD and the Prosecutors office aren't used to defendants that don't just roll over and plead out. It means the police are sloppy with the evidence trail. The police let officers whose credibility is an issue... *cough* Fuhrman *cough* touch the evidence trail. And the Prosecutors are out of their league when faced with a competent defense.


Me, I think THIS is the answer. I wouldn't be surprised if he DID do it, but the LAPD only have themselves to blame for how this was handled, it was a joke from the beginning, and the live coverage in the courtroom just turned it into a circus. I will go to my grave thinking that whether guilty or not, the LAPD farking up is why OJ got off, as in if he were innocent, they had enough circumstantial evidence that a competent police force and DA could get him convicted, but they were so inept that he walked. Like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if it was him, but as someone stated earlier, this is actually an example of our system working, since they didn't produce a decent case.

Morons. Fuhrman, for one, was a huge liability.

It doesn't matter if DNA is 1 in a EIGHT trillion, when random people have traipsed through your crime scene, anyone could have planted it, and it cold have legitimately come from anyone because of that, the evidence was tainted, pure and simple. The OJ defense team just took good advantage of that.


Actually, at this point, a one in EIGHT trillion chance the DNA belonged to someone other than him is proof enough because at the time there were only 5 trillion people on the planet.

Yeah, he did it. And got away with it because of the black jurors.
We all know this and you blaming on the police is willful ignorance.

shower_in_my_socks: Fun facts: Nicole and her other socialite friends called BJs a "Brentwood Hello," and several other waiters at Goldman's restaurant were (ALLEGEDLY!) banging her, to the point where they used to draw straws when she'd call for someone to "deliver" something, like "oops... left my sunglasses there again!".

Also, it's so farking obvious that OJ did it -- biggest legal farkup of my lifetime.

Also #2 - Kato was his (ALLEGED!) drug dealer / "party planner." He had a lot of reasons to keep his farking mouth shut. The last time I saw him anywhere, he was hosting Hawaiian Tropic party videos. That was at least seven years ago.



I've heard that rumor before but I can't remember where. That sounds more like a credibility hit job on a dead woman's body. The easiest way to discredit a woman is to tell everyone she sleeps around. It's true the wealthy people in Los Angeles are more prone to sleeping around though, most likely because, like NYC, a larger percentage of wealthy are single.

THIS.

The primary witness responsible for OJ's acquittal was Detective Mark Furhman. It was a team effort on the part of the Keystone Kops LAPD, but he was definitely the star player.


Yeah people seem to forget that Furhman's and the other detective on the case credibility was impeached on the stand when they had to take the fifth to every question that the prosecution asked about them using racial slurs and planting evidence. Then mix that with the discrepancies in the blood evidence, namely the blood found on OJ's stuff had a preservative in it that is used to preserve blood samples and the amount that was in the blood evidence doesn't occur naturally in humans, would lead a reasonable person to believe that the evidence was planted.

Too bad for your argument that you don't understand how statistics work. 1 in 8 trillion could still mean that if there were only 2 people(unrelated) on the entire planet, they could still have similar enough DNA. It's not like a counter reaches a certain number and resets. In the same way, you could roll a die and get a '1' every roll for the rest of your life, because that 1 in 6 chance resets with each roll.

Blaming this on the cops is totally relevant. I remember this fiasco happening and couldn't believe how sloppy they were.

- Nicole's Akita, who are defensive, did not attack the killer
- A neighbor thought he saw a white "van" leaving the scene, and another witness saw a white Bronco leaving the scene
- Kato saw OJ the night of the murders wearing the same type of clothing that left fibers on Goldman
- Kato heard a loud thump outside where the bloody glove was later found
- The limo driver who picked OJ up the night of the murders was waiting outside for OJ, who was late, and saw a man matching OJ's description walk into the house, right before OJ told the driver he was late because he had been sleeping -- OJ didn't answer the buzzer until right after the driver saw the "mystery man" go into the house
- There was a "mystery" black bag with OJ's other bags for his trip that night - Kato loaded all of OJ's bags, but wasn't allowed to touch that one, and it was never seen again. The limo driver said he saw 5 bags at OJ's house, but only 3 were in the car when they got to the airport, and he saw OJ standing near his trash bins before they left
- OJ had a history of violence against Nicole, and she told multiple friends that he would kill her - the last time was one week before she was killed
- There was a lot more blood evidence than what Fuhrman was accused of planting -- a ridiculous amount of DNA evidence at the scene, in his car, at his house, that alone should have convicted him
- Fibers from OJ's hat and clothes were at the crime scene, and the bloody glove had fibers from his Bronco and hair from Nicole
- Hair from OJ was found on Goldman
- Footprints left in blood at the crimescene match a size 12 Bruno Magli shoe, which OJ denies owning even though there's photographic evidence proving otherwise
- Despite the glove allegedly not fitting, it was XL, which was his correct size, and photographic evidence confirms he owned the same type of gloves
- A knuckle on OJ's right hand is cut, which matches the location of blood evidence at the murder scene - he gives three different stories about the cut
- When told in Chicago about Nicole's murder, OJ has no questions about it, and doesn't ask if his kids are safe, doesn't cry, and doesn't act surprised when police tell him he's a suspect
- OJ had an alibi for 23 of the 24 hours on the day of the murders - the missing hour with no alibi was when the murders happened
- OJ and his attorney gave conflicting stories about what he was doing during that missing hour
- OJ GOES ON A SLOW MOVING POLICE CHASE WHILE HOLDING A GUN TO HIS HEAD - a suicide note is later found
- OJ's friend who drove the Bronco said OJ was going to run to Mexico, and he had $8,000+ in cash that OJ was having him carry
- Police find a passport, and a fake beard and mustache in the Bronco - the beard and mustache were bought just two weeks before the murders

Nope, not guilty.

Yeah, pretty much spot on. Gave OJ *juuuuuuust* enough reasonable doubt that a jury wouldn't convict.

The defense had a few facts that were consistent with evidence tampering, and they had someone who admitted in a taped interview he would be willing to tamper with evidence, and that guy happened to find all the key pieces of evidence.

It was a long shot defense theory, but taken together it can just barely produce enough reasonable doubt.

You haven't really read this board, have you? I don't think a single person has defended OJ. What we've said is that the case was mishandled from the beginning, and based on the evidence that wasn't discredited, the jury came up with the type of decision that they should have. It didn't convict the man most likely guilty, but we aren't supposed to convict the "most likely", that's where that whole reasonable doubt thing comes in. It's not perfect, but it's probably the best system that has ever existed.

If they based on "most likely", every case would get solved, but how many innocents would be in jail or dead?

By putting some of the key evidence in doubt, it removed the shadow of a doubt for some, and the evidence was placed in doubt by the actions of the LAPD and the DA.

Just a little of the Mark Furhman tapes. Yeah i would really believe testimony coming from this guy.

Also whether or not he ever planted evidence, which he took the fifth to. But that isn't an important thing to ask the lead detective, especially when you him on tape to admitting to planting evidence..

People seem to forget or ignore the fact that he took the fifth when asked if he ever planted evidence in the past. But of course OJ was acquitted because the jury was black and not because they couldn't trust the detectives and the evidence had all types of discrepancies.

nmemkha: Runs_With_Scissors_: No. No, he didn't

From TMZ:

UPDATE: 12:58 PM PT -- We just spoke to Kato in Beverly Hills, and he insists he NEVER did an interview saying OJ murdered his wife. He says he has no idea where the quotes came from, adding, "I would never say something like this."

Kato Kaelin just told TMZ ... he NEVER told the New York Post that he knows OJ Simpson murdered his wife or that he's only coming forward now because the statute of limitations on perjury has run.

Kato says he was shocked when he read the report which quoted him as saying, "The statute of limitations has now passed ... so I can now say ... yes, he did it."

Kato tells TMZ ... he never said any of those things to reporter Cindy Adams or anyone else.

Kato says he has expressed his opinion over the years ... that he THINKS Simpson killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman ... but tells us, "I have no first hand knowledge."

Sounds like we have a Hollywood mystery. Better call the Hardly Boys:

I'm told by a former colleague of Cochran's that there was an accomplice. This made prosecuting the case very touchy, because they had a weaker case against the accomplice & didn't charge him yet the accomplice's evidence made OJ's prosecution tricky (the glove did not fit). Furman was a turd in the punchbowl for the prosecution, also.

2012-09-21 01:26:01 AM  
One of the things the jury never heawerd was that when OJ hired his first lawyer, the lawyer got him to agree to plead guilty and dispense with a jury trial. Had he done so, it would have been all over but the shouting. As it was Johnny Cochran showed up and got a good team together and persuaded OJ not to pleada guilty and that Johnny, et al, could get him off. OJ went with Cochran and the rest is history. As to whether OJ was really guilty...you decide but in my mind, a defendant who is a celeberity does not agree to plead guilty unless he really is guilty. So by OJ agreeing initially to plead guilty tells the tale in my opinion.

The jury was 1/2 black and 1/2 white, one hispanic. And they weren't present when Fuhrman took the 5th, and once he'd take the 5th with regard to the "n-word" thing, that was it--a witness cannot take the 5th for parts of his testimony. Either he testifies or he does not. After Fuhrman took the 5th, nothing else could be asked or answered.

Furhman could have been rehabilitated as a witness. Also, the evidence was not irretrievably tainted; a better set of prosecutors could have pulled out key pieces of untainted evidence. There was a lot of blood evidence that was more than adequate to tie Simpson to the murders that was not in question; but it was lost in the morass of conspiracy theories and n-word debates.

Also, it's worth noting that of all the evidence and testimony presented at the trial, only about 48% of it made it to the jury. That is, they had to make up their minds based on less than HALF what the TV audience and later commentators saw to make their decisions. By comparison, the judge in the civil trial allowed over 75% of all evidence and testimony presented (Source: LA Times right after the civil trial, but they make you pay to access it nowadays)

So it wasn't because the "jury was black"--they weren't--or that Furhman alone destroyed the case. The case was the prosecutors to lose--and they lost big time.

People are convinced a lot of times to plead guilty when they are innocent when the death penalty is on the table, which hadn't been decided when he was arrested, so that doesn't mean much. Plus it was said that Cochrane got him to got to trial by convincing him that even if he did get convicted no jury would sentence him to death.

Gyrfalcon: The jury was 1/2 black and 1/2 white, one hispanic


No it wasn't

From an original jury pool of 40% white, 28% black, 17% Hispanic, and 15% Asian, the final jury for the trial had 10 women and 2 men, of which there were 8 blacks, 2 Hispanics, 1 half-Native American, half-white, and 1 white female.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: It wasn't the police work, it was the prosecuters. The same evidence from the police investigation was used competently during the civil case, which OJ lost.


Yeah but in Civil cases, the burden of proof is much, much lower.

I think it was more a case of "functionally retarded jury syndrome".


No, the jury was following the judge's instructions, which were that if any part of the prosecution's case was unbelievable, they had to dismiss the validity of the entire thing.

I always thought that the testimony by the old German guy neighbor was interesting. He claimed that he heard a black guy arguing outside Nicole's house.

That was predictably tossed out by the defense as "racist" and that you can't tell if a person is black by the way they speak.

I have often wondered why that wasn't challenged in court. I think I can personally identify with about 99% accuracy when someone is speaking if they are black or not, without seeing them. I agree that it's not completely accurate, especially when the person may have actually grown up in an actual Kings-English speaking areas like ex British colonies, but for most people in this country I think most of us can tell the difference.

Ebonics is an actual language, just ax the Oakland teachers union.

How many times does this have to be said before people start to understand it? Are there really that many people that dropped out before highschool? That's the only explanation since that fact is drilled into the youth in every history class that covers US history, as well as the mandatory civics class all students must take before graduating.

Hector Remarkable: That hurts my feelings. i really thought he would like my gum-flavored coffee innovation. Man, you try to make some people's lives a little brighter and that's the thanks you get.


After lunch, I sometimes sip coffee right after a stick of mint gum instead of flossing (I'm not going to floss at work, goddamnit). It's actually delicious. Someone else's gum, no.

If he helped a murderer go free, he's damn lucky if all he got was gum in his coffee.
