Do you really think that anyone would take this jerk to trial and not have EVERY loose end tied up. After watching 2 trials where common sense was not a big trait in the juries, I am betting the Prosecutors' are covering every side of this....

141. Elaine27 First off the black man did get his justice when he went free for 13yrs, second he thought he couldnt be touched and fell for the bait, what a dumbass, watch the pre trial, OJ asked for the gins to be brought, and third, the boy sent to prison for 10yrs caz at the time it was a state law. rather you were black or white, he got released when the law there changed. So dont start your crap about the black man gettin no justice. ITS GETTING OLD.

========================================================
I live in GA and if the civil rights leaders and concerned citizens did not speak out about the injustice that was meted out to Geraldo by the justice syetem,the white republican senator would not change the law. It took the supreme court to over turn his conviction and even then the white prosecutor was being a pain in the neck.The young man stood up for his rights and decided that he was not going plead guilty because they would have branded him as a sex offender for life, and even though he was in prison for about 3yrs he still claimed that he was innocent and that was why on Saturday he was given the award for CORAGE, because as a black youth he never relented even though he was in prison and the white girl said that the oral sex was concentual, the darn redneck prosecutor even was exerting undue influence on the white girl's mother, so go do your home work, if it had not been for the public outcry and the hard work of his lawyer and the civil rights leaders,the poor promising blackman would be branded for life as a fellon. Thank God that he kept his fortitude and will be going to college soon. The poor kid was a footballer and an honor student. This is the pattern of some hungry white prosecutors who are looking a name for themself at any cost. A WHITE MAN CANNOT UNDERSTAND A BLACKMAN'S PHLIGHT. THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS DIFFERENT FOR BOTH. THE BLACKMAN ALWAYS GET THE HARSHER SENTENCE. TOO MANY BLACKMEN HAVE BEEN TO THE ELECTRIC CHAIR INNOCENTLY. Just listening to all the witnesses against O.J., any one with an ounce of intelligence would throw the case through the door. One of the key players told 911 that O.J. held him up at gun point and then he is recanting his story and said that O.J. did not have a gun.This is all policits and I am sick and tired of the judges and prosecutors sending innocent people to prison because of politics and thier own selfish gain.

In life, all the bad will come back and haunt you in one way or another. It could be minor setbacks to offset the bad thngs u have done in life, just to teach u a lesson! But when u do the big thing like murder, there is no forgiveness. OJ is a creep he is done - soon Nicole and Goldman will be ready to rest in peace!

When you walk into a hotel room with 4or 5 goons packing heat and try to remove things that may or may not belong to you and you somehow threathen those in the room when you enter by yelling obsenities or what ever. That to me is a crime. If you take the police to that same room and try to determine if said objects are yours and do not threathen anyone that would have been perhaps the way to go. But O.J. thinks he can do as he pleases. Jail might just be the place to put him in his place.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Love the picture! It's almost like he realizes that he's NOT going to skate this time! Jury selection is gonna be fun. They'll have to get people living in caves, or from Mars that are oblivious about his past. It's going to be very hard for him to find Nicole's 'real killer' now that he has to do it from a jail cell and not a golf course. What does the inside of OJ's holding cell smell like? Depends. wa, wa, waaaaa.

Bonaventure is an excellent judge and has given a fair ruling but...this was still a set up. OJ has clearly gone too far and broken the law but he was ratted out and I feel there is so much more to the story. I guess you can expect nothing less (after hearing all the testimony) from a bunch of mafia like weirdos with felonies and misdemeanors. I wonder how the jury though sleeps at night from his criminal trial of 13 years ago????
