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

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.

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.

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.

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."

- 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.

clyph: Mikey1969: 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.

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.

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.

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.

Mark Furman took the missing drop of blood and spread it on the glove, the sock, the car and whatever else OJ bled on.

/The bronco was found outside his compound, beyond the back wall, askew on the street, with the door open and blood pooled inside on the console and on the steering wheel and seat etc. But the glove didn't fit.

It's a wonder they convicted Manson with the LAPD involved. One thing I remember was the Tate residence had an electric gate. Big bloody print on the 'open' button from the murderers opening it. Some LAPD cop pressed the button to open the gate without looking at it first. DeerrrrrrppPP

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.

The Police work was terrible, the Prosecutor was inept and everyone on that Jury knew LA would burn and their families would get annihilated if he was found guilty.

Sequestered jury? Yeah. Anyone happen to notice the Postal Worker next door has been gone for 8 months? Wonder if they are on that Jury?



So many reasons that travesty happened.

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.


I think that's because there's a lower standard for finding someone guilty in a civil trial than a murder trial.
