Daily Republic seeks memories of OJ case

By
From page A3 | June 15, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — The football star. The grisly murders. The white Bronco. The bloody glove.

It’s been 20 years since the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman started a saga that starred retired football player O.J. Simpson and would captivate Americans with what was dubbed the “Trial of the Century.”

Simpson’s ex-wife and her friend were found dead outside her Southern California condo on June 13, 1994. Four days later, Americans watched as Simpson led police on a slow-speed chase through Los Angeles that underscored the media frenzy that would define the entire case.

The Daily Republic would like its readers to share their thoughts and memories of the highly publicized case that was televised and ended in the acquittal of Simpson after nearly eight months.

Readers may send their feedback and their contact information to gfaison@dailyrepublic.net.

    I watched every minute of this trial. We knew going in there was never going to be a guilty verdict because number one, it was OJ for crying out loud! You have to remember that Simpson was a hero and football legend along with his movies, most notably the Naked Gun series and broadcast fame at the time. Dude still draws a lot of attention!And number two, too many African Americans were still angry about the Rodney King incident and subsequent riots. The defense was brilliant and unfortunately unintentionally comedic while the prosecution was shown to be inept and frankly stupid. The cast of "interesting" characters were endless, forensic or DNA evidence was so boring and the glove episode forever proving Johnnie was king!

    The fist pumps, cheering, and high-fives among the black college students televised when the verdict was announced.

    The judge was grossly inept and allowed too many errors in favor of the defense. He will go down in history as presiding over a farce, a charade, a textbook example of how not to oversee a trial and the prosecutor was a bad joke.

    A determined father not settling for it to end there, but suing OJ for the death of his son. He won. Justice was finally served at a level just about everybody could accept. There is more ways than one to get justice in our system.

    Rick, he is an arrogant dude and finally got his just desserts! Sort of like Capone. They may not get you on murder but they WILL get you! ;)

    Bob, not sure I heard you complaining when the Lewinski story ran again? These types of story are revisited every so often. Still waiting on your FOX-ism challenge...

    If we didn't have this trial we wouldn't have the Kardashian's bouncing and behaving badly not to mention Bruce Jenner turning into a women, wow OJ thanks?

    Yes, good point. Another memory is how it profits a person in America to be a celebrity, no matter who you really are.

    Only OJ would get away with one of the most infamous murders in history and then try and rob "his" belongings back. Those items should've been liquidated to pay the Brown and Goldman families years ago! OJ Simpson = Psychopath
