I see it a different way ...

In reply to: avoid with extreme prejudice

... although I won't be watching. IMO, the more OJ talks publically, the more of those remaining that believe in his innocence might be swayed, including some soul searching in the black community (hopefully) who will finally reject the jury nullification. I remember that shortly after the verdict surveys showed that blacks believed OJ's innocence in an almost mirror image of the numbers in which whites believed in his guilt. I wonder if that has changed at all.

I'm also not a big fan of the resulting civil suit in that case. Don't get me wrong, he was guilty as sin and IMO NO financial penalty would be too big. BUT, we have a criminal court system in this country and he was found not guilty. I think that civil wrongful death judgments should only be allowed to go forth against someone who has been criminally convicted (or plead) to being responsible for a death in some capacity. The burden of proof is too low in the civil case. One might argue that he wouldn't have gotten off if not for the fact that he's OJ, but also then, the Goldman/Simpson family would not have had financial resources to go after. There are vindictive people out there of considerable financial resources. It is not to difficult to imagine this being used to ruin someone if it only requires convincing a majority of a jury that XYZ is more likely than not to be responsible for something. IOW, my position is not about just OJ.

good news from fox news

In reply to: avoid with extreme prejudice

the tv show is cancelled, fox pulls it for what I think are obvious reasons: the outrage by the public. it was not that fox had an epiphany, probably potential loss of revenue was their moral guideline.

The book has been cancelled by its publisher as well

In reply to: good news from fox news

Why anyone thought this was a good idea in the first place is beyond me.

I wonder though, whether the people who decried "attempted suppression of freedom of speech" over the "Path to 9/11" fuss would argue in OJ's defense here.

Where the h-e double toothpicks does he get his money?

In reply to: oh oh you know how oh jay gets

And why can't the civil judgement be made to work and make him a pauper? And apparently there are women lining up to get a piece of OJ !! Whats up with that. I'd cross the road, or leave the county to avoid him.

He put most of his money in a lifetime annuity

The judgment can't touch that and he gets a monthly check from it.

plus the florida homestead exemption

In reply to: He put most of his money in a lifetime annuity

which sounds like a tax benefit. but:

Florida's creditor protection homestead provision is one of the broadest in the United States. The value of the property that can be protected is unlimited, so long as the property occupies no more than ? acre (2,000 m
