The crime justice system
First of all, the criminal justice system has nothing to do with either criminals or justice
Politics have more to do with what a DA does and how a jury reacts than law.
Those who do sit on juries have their views colored by oprah, the media, the TV, the movies, etc
Anyone who believes the system is on the level is bull****ting themselves
Huh? WTF does that have to do with anything? I thought, it was about injustice? Now it is just about race?I don't know. I do know that most crime against blacks are done by other blacks.
My point is not about who is guilty of crime on who. It is about the fact that there have been hundreds of miscarriages of justice where minorities have been on the wrong end of it and yet this is the important one?
The response from many black people was largely about all those years of injustice. It may not have been rational, but it is damn sure understandable.
Maybe I'm a different kind of Black man who believes in the justice system. It's like this Casey Anthony trial. If she isn't found guilty of murdering her child many people will see this as justice not being served and that a murderer got away scott free. But I see it somewhat differently. While I believe the mother killed her child, you still have to prove it in a court of law, and so far the prosecution hasn't quite proven their case. The verdict's still out, though. We'll just have to wait and see. But I digress...
OJ wasn't found guilty not because he was Black, but because the prosecution didn't prove their case.
and had planted the evidence based on racist motivations. that was the entire case of the defense. the jury was manipulated
through a fear tactic. the defense essentially made clear that if they would convict, they would be labeled "racists" on
national high rotation television programming. their faces were known across the map because the circus ring leader oriental
judge wanted his andy warhol 15 minutes of fame. the entire trial was a sham. any dumb ass could see that.
“The ideal form of government is democracy tempered with assassination.”
OJ was clearly guilty
Judge Ito was a joke and the chief judge should have not allowed a guy like him to conduct a trial like that. There were far more experienced and iron fisted judges who would have kept that media circus under control
Fuhrman got screwed-his "perjury" conviction was a joke since his supposed lies were not material.
Goldman's father should have obtained a cleaner. that would have been justice
Half of the population more than likely doesn’t know who O J Simpson is. As for as us ragging on a 20-year-old murder verdict.
What’s the solution? **** like this happens all the time, nothing racial about it.O.J. just had the dough to hire a top notch legal team, add to that incompetence on the prosecution side… perfect storm is what you get.
Look at Whitey Bulger. He and his sweetie have been living in a beach house in Malibu for sixteen years, knowing he killed nineteen people (and responsible for many more) and the feds kept quite on it. **** happens.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
And republicans wonder why they are labeled as racists.
