This why O J is walking around a free, if a bit poorer, man.
Walking around free? When did he get out? There are still 5 years until he's eligible for parole.

I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right question.

I forgot about the Vegas thing.

Whole different thing.
Wittiness, evidence, etc.

I guess it makes the point from the other direction.

You need to keep up on current events.

Yeah, that was the news story I came across on the Vegas thing.

But my original point was the whole (white) country was willing to convict him of murder based on nothing but circumstantial evidence.

I have do doubt that O J is a hugely egotistical, not very nice, guy.
But that is not enough to convict him of murder.
You need physical evidence that is undoubtedly connected to the accused.

I also have no doubt that God is a loving, nice guy.
And I can list all kinds of circumstantial evidence.
But at some point, I have to admit, it comes down to faith.

O. J. is real. I saw him play football.

"God" is still just an imaginary friend unless you have pictures of him breaking off tackle for a big gain.

"O. J. is real. I saw him play football."

True.

But the concept of him murdering his ex-wife is imaginary.
No evidance.
It takes an act of faith to belive it.

This sounds like a great rebuttal to the crocoduck.

Apparently not enough evidence to convince a jury.

Of course, as someone once observed.

Jury = A group chosen to decide who has the best lawyer.
