I don't agree and I feel sorry for OJ Simpson. I don't think he received a fair trial. He was found not guilty by our criminal court system for the murder, yet everyone thinks he is guilty. As a result and because of his celebrity status he is unfairly watched and more attention is given to his case by the DA versus that of an average citizen.

I respect our legal system and as a result I feel Simpson was dealt a bad hand when he was subjected to a civil lawsuit after being found not guilty. An individual who is found to be not guilty in a criminal court should be immediately exempt from a civil suit.

If Simpson hadn't been tried again in civil court then I highly doubt he'd of been in Las Vegas trying to recover his stolen memorabilia. The judgment from the civil suit has put him in a difficult situation.

This case was simply an example of a DA office putting more effort into a high profile case and trying to get revenge for a crime they felt he was guilty of 13 years ago despite the fact that our peers found him not guilty.

Your kidding, the man LITERALLY got away with murder and you feel sorry for him? I mean c'mon, surely he was guilty in '95.

I will however say that the trial wasn't fair, if it wouldn't of been for the murder, which he apparently wasn't guilty of, he wouldn't have recieved such a harsh punishment.

But that doesn't mean I feel sorry for that scum...
