The assailant wore two hats.  At the same time?

The victim told police the man, who police said was Blue, pulled a gun on him and demanded his money, phone and keys.

It's in my head now, so everyone else can also have a reminder of how bad the early 2000s were, musically.

Because OJ had the money to hire good lawyers who wove a plausible story.

In my own mental  A is for Alibi, I was thinking I'd send a prostitute to secure a used condom from the target/fall-guy, make him drink until he passes out, steal his car and make the murder look like a sexual assault.
Make sure it's someone with a past record, so DNA on file, have the car scuff something there and make sure it's witnessed so the license plate is recorded by some passerby.
Pay the prostitute enough to leave town.
Guy's best case alibi: I was drunk at home with a hooker, I don't know how my DNA got there, or why my car was seen there and has matching scuff marks on the paint.

/problem: the prostitute will remain a lose thread unless I'm willing to take her out as well

"Good" as in accomplished and skilled, not as in "moral".

I mean, we're talking about lawyers here.   Moral behavior is off the table completely.

It didn't help that some blood from the actual evidence vial was unaccounted for. That's one of those "bad things" in court if the defense brings it up and the prosecution doesn't have a good excuse.

That's what hiring a bunch of sharp lawyers gets you, the ability to comb through all the evidence from the prosecution and find holes in it.

You rely on a public defender with dozens of cases on his desk at once, you're not going to get that level of attention.   Plus, they probably aren't that smart to begin with, or they'd be making more money.

I've always thought that if I wanted to pursue a career as a serial killer, I'd take a day job as a barber, so I could have plenty of stray hair to plant at crime scenes to give police DNA to find
 
2020-09-30 8:57:01 AM  
So the victim grabbed the gun, got pistol-whipped, fought the assailant AGAIN, got stabbed, got the gun away, and chased the assailant off - apparently Jackie Chan has a night job.

This is an example of why we have repeat offender laws. A small number of people making a huge amount of trouble.  This guy needs to be in a prison cell for a while.

Pick up the trash from any ghetto barber shop. Reality of racial disparity in the justice system means you will have hair from at least a few felons with DNA on file. You can sprinkle a fark-ton of hair all over a crime scene and keep police chasing down dozens of false leads.

Do be aware that if you do this you might get someone convicted of a crime they didn't commit. Police might just pick a suspect and make them fit the crime.

It's would be pretty easy to tell the hair was cut and not shed. So then you  would have the police looking for someone with access to a barber shop. If there truly were a lot of hair from people with DNA on file, it would be easy to track down which barber shop.

Too late. He's black so the police already shot him.

Cop at crime scene: Why is there a lot of hair from different people scattered around?
Detective: Maybe our guy is a barbar?
Cop: *thinking to himself* what does an elephant have to do with this?

The Master Baiter: The problem with the O.J. trial is that they didn't have DNA evidence like we have now.  Also, the prosecution was piss poor.

As for this guy, even the O.J. jury wouldn't fall for his story.  They weren't that gullible.


The biggest problem with the O.J. trial was the prosecution's critical evidence was found by one detective who was recorded both saying racist remarks as well as admitting he would give false testimony. O.J. probably owes his freedom to Fuhrman's racist ass.

Investigators found a large blood smear on a metal guard rail on the on ramp. DNA was recovered from the blood, and from two hats the victim told police were knocked off his assailant's head during the fight.

Suspect was two-hatted, repeat, two-hatted.

In reality this is the argument I use professionally to explain to people why having a Universal DNA database would be a very bad idea for that very reason. DNA is not the magic wand most people assume.   It has to be ONE factor of many establishing a crime was committed and that the accused had motive, means an opportunity

Agree that it would be easy to see that the hair was cut but if you believe the police would let a small detail like that get in the way of arresting (if they're lucky) an African-American for a crime, I have a bridge for sale I think you might be interested in.
