O.J. Was Not Guilty of Murder

I thought so at the time (the presence of EDTA in the blood taken from the crime scene having convinced me of police foul play), but this "fascinating video that makes a case for someone else committing the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (though O.J. was involved in his own way, after the fact)" posted by David Kramer puts all the missing pieces together — O.J. Simpson: Guilty, But Not of Murder?

Well, he wasn't guilty of murder, but one suspects he was guilty of manslaughter while high on cocaine which he bought while at Burger king.

As for this "suspect", one doubts that He was vicious enough to do it, or had the experience and quickness to fight off Goldman, who after all did have a black belt in Karate.

OJ was guilty as sin. His bloody Italian leather shoe foot print was at the scene.

A jury of his peers thought differently. I was convinced the a not guilty verdict was correct when it was reported that the Juice's blood found at the scene contained EDTA, a chemical used to keep blood samples in vials from coagulating, i.e. it was planed by the police. The injustice was that not police officers were investigated.

For those not willing to take the eighty minutes to watch the video, it alleges that O.J.'s son was the murderer, and that O.J. visited the crime scene after a call from his son.

I remain shocked at how quick "conservatives" are to condemn O.J. One of the most important things we have to conserve is a legal system, which, as Blackstone said, sees it "better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

Perhaps they'd rather have the Japanese system, with its 90% conviction rate resulting from the fact that judges, who decide guilt, are unlikely to doubt prosecutors and police for fear of upsetting relationships. Such a system might work for the Japanese, but it is alien to our Anglo-Saxon traditions.

We have pretty close to 90% conviction rate here. A prof of mine who followed the case closely thought he should have been found not guilty because he felt the credibility of the police was successfully impeached. He still believed OJ was guilty as sin.

I recall hearing that point about OJ covering up for his son.

Euthyphro, anyone?
