Good riddance.

I still remember the TV was on waiting for the verdict and we were all in front of it and Dad said:

"A person's life coming down to this single decision. "

Then Dad turn to us and said

"Live your lives honestly right every day, don't put yourselves in the same predicament."

12 decisions in actuality. One for each juror.

Sometimes to hard not to speak ill of the dead.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Even Cameron thought if the glove didn't fit, you must acquit:

Quote

“It was actually OJ Simpson that was the first cast Terminator,” Schwarzenegger told The Independent in 2019. “Then somehow [James Cameron] felt that he was not as believable for a killing machine. So then they hired me. That’s really what happened.”


He just didn't believe it. Hence we got Arnie.


How did the blood from the crime scene get inside OJ's house and trunk? The glove didn't fit, but the blood did? I guess even real audiences had a hard time believing bumbling Nordberg could be a bad guy.


Bonus: Thanks to OJ we have the Kardashian plague.

And endless tv commercials for the law firms of Robert Shapiro and Johnnie Cochran for several years after the trial ended.
