    It is allowed. It is not always just.
    Okay, the score is 59687-1. Do you get why they cheered? I don't disagree that justice may not have been their motivation, but rather revenge. I get why they would want revenge, though. It's not nice, but it's human and completely understandable. This does not prove that all black people are racists who just want to kill whitey, which is really the point behind bellyaching about the OJ verdict and the reaction.

    It always appeared to be a miscarriage of justice. It's not the first, last or most important. It was just one of the first that went a black man's way.

    Therefore the jury let the murderer go free. Jury nullification. Simple. Not illegal.

    Well, no. Most black people prefer to assault, rape, maim, and murder other blacks.

    Don't know. Can't say. It would have been better for jury nullification to prevent an injustice rather than to perpetrate one.

    The OJ simpson trial proved that money can buy a trial and that Criminal Defense is mostly a big created BS story. You cant really blame blacks for feeling how they did about the simpson trial, theyve watched lots and lots of bigshot whiteboys beat the wheel with expensive sleazy lawyers

    No-we realize its a common ploy from the left to call anyone who doesn't buy into the real racism the left practices (ie enabling social pathologies and making excuses for some blacks who don't succeed without watered down standards) "racist"

    the left uses the term so much it has lost its meaning and much of the racism today comes from "minorities"

    This was a real dumb thing to say. This thread denotes nothing about racism and even less about Republicans.

    It was bait - but no one was hungry.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Jury decisions are not decided by a majority of jurors. They were unanimous in their decision. They have to be or they are a hung jury.

    I remember being shocked at the verdict. The 'spread your fingers out in the base of the glove so that you can't pull it onto your hand' demonstration was pure foolery. Anyone with a modicum of spacial skills could see that it was big enough for his hand.

    But, I wasn't there. It's not the same as watching it on TV.

    This 'confession' to Oprah story has not surfaced in any of the mainstream media outlets. There must be a reason for that.

    It wasn't a dumb thing to say. I reviewed all the comments that were said in this thread. And some of the most racial comments were said from conservatives from southern states. You cry and moan about the injustice of the OJ trial okay fine. But how loud would that cry be if Nicole was black? OJ was guilty no doubt about it, but don't sit here and preach about injustice when deep in your heart you are really upset about a black man getting away with murdering a "precious white woman". Where was that same anger when those cops beat the hell out of Rodney King on camera and all got acquitted by a all white jury. Not a peep from the white community. And I can go down through history. Medgar Evers was slain right in front of his house by Byron De La Beckwith and guess what he was found innocent and white community celebrated. Emmitt Till was another. The list can go on and on.

    So please spare me the fake injustice cry. People only care about justice when it is in favor of them.
