    I throw it back in the persons face.


    And as for selective ethics.
    Not necessarily.

    You do not have to violate your ethics to provide the best defense you can withing the confines of the law.
    Or in other words; Make the State prove their case.
    Which part of my post was inappropriate? The part where I asked you if you believed Peterson was innocent? Or suggesting you would make a good criminal attorney...or both?

    We ought to think of it this way. How many of people out there have had wives die suspiciously? And, if they did, how many of those were telling their friends that that she thought her husband would kill her, that the husband even threatened to kill her? Who in their right mind thinks this information shouldn't be admitted into evidence at trial?
    All that is required to refute this is a conspiracy of people against the accused, who is innocent, and the defendant loses unjustly.

    OJ walked. Right? Convictions do not just drop out of the sky. Juries are usually pretty skeptical.

    Didn't I just explain what I do?

    I think If you look at what I threw back you should be able to tell.

    Maybe I should throw back your exaggerational sensitivity comment too?

    Yeah, I know.

    I just figure that, God forbid, I am ever in front of a jury myself, that I get every advantage I can to prove my innocence.

    The O.J. Simpson trial was not typical at all, not from the seating of the jurors (or, rather, who was excluded from the jury) to the incompetence of the prosecution to the star-struck Judge Ito.

    I strongly recommend this Bugliosi book: Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O. J. Simpson Got Away with Murder: Vincent Bugliosi: 9780393330830: Amazon.com: Books

    Well...I hear ya. I'm not a big fan of Law and Order prosecution teams myself. But...I think I hate those who beat their wives and kill them even more.

    I blame the cops, starting with the lying, perjuring, racist. Mark what's his name, who found the glove. He's not on the case, OJ does life.

    Cal (can I call you Cal?) I completely agree with you.

    I have lost several friends due to domestic violence.

    Having personal knowledge, I would have shot the estranged husbands myself if I had known that the last step would have been murder, but, alas, I did not know until it was too late.

    I think Peterson is pure scum, but I still want the legal system to be as fair as possible, even knowing that a few dicks like Drew might slip through.

    A local prosecutor told me years ago, when I was bitching about the rights of accused murders, that "I would want every break that I could get if I was ever wrongfully charged myself".

    I never forgot his words, and he was a real hard-case DA.
