    Re: O.J. Simpson confessed murder to Oprah

    The trial served as the official "jump the shark" moment for the U.S. judicial system.

    A case that should have been filed under the cateogory of "duh, he did it" ended up in an acquittal.

    Cases like this are why doctors spend $180 PER HOUR on malpractice insurance. The system has been exploited and twisted to the point of uselessness.

    It was the LAPD and the incompetent prosecutor's that blew the OJ case.


    One of the most basic lessons in law school is " In cross-examination -Never ask a question that you don't know the answer to...and never ask an open ended question"

    Chris Darden asking OJ to try on the glove was the turning point of the trial...and he violated both of these basics. He was so certain that he was going to have a "gotcha" moment that he didn't even account for the fact that shrinkage would occur because of the condition of the glove. The DA should have been prepared for that, they could have consulted with experts, but their incompetency overwhelmed them.

    please, stop it... even if it would have fit, fact was it probably fit a million people, the whole idea was bad, and wouldnt have proved anything..

    the case should have been open shut guilty anyway.

    the jury has to live with that
