Juiced!

OJ finally went down today. and what a spectacularly dumb way to do it. robbery??? really, juice???i feel conflicted. i know most people believe he killed those people, and he probably did. i preferred to remain undecided and not take a position. it amused me to see people get annoyed by him drawing the breath of a free man. i'm not sure what that says about me. maybe i like seeing things get stirred up. my position was always "if he did kill them, there is no escaping The Judge, so, he'll get his someday."well, its over now....

Interesting Post for "juiced" as compared to your comments in "care of the elderly." Isn't all life sacred? Shouldn't Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown be vindicated?

i'm all for justice. like i said, since i was never convinced oj was guilty, i was ok with him getting off. but who ever did kill them will get their's, i believe....

I agree wholeheartedly with you. When the original trial was going on I used to say to people who were crying for his conviction that he, like everybody else, is Innocent until PROVEN guilty. If the prosecution failed to do their job and prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt then he has no business being convicted. I always believed that Klaus Von Beulow put his wife into a coma and there was no uproar when he was acquited in his retrial. Not only did he get away with attempted murder, he walked away and lived high on the hog on Her millions. All life is sacred Jeff, and Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown did not deserve to die in anyway. However, what makes this country great and other countries less so, is that the legal system here in America puts the burden on the State and not on the accused, who does not have one thousandth of the power of the state. There are plenty of countries where people are adjudged to be guilty based on flimsy circumstantial evidence. Where their "Judge" refuses to hear evidence and witnesses that would prove the accused's innocence. I would much rather be a citizen of this country, where sometimes guilty people are "acquited", because the state can't prove their case rather than being a citizen of the many countries where innocent people are railroaded and sometimes murdered by the state because "Everyone Knows" that they are guilty.
