    It was amazing we saw a murderer panicking and trying to flee.

    CNN pretty much carpet-bombed the TV with coverage, insight etc. Vincent Bugliosi was on almost every night doing "coaches corner" in analyzing the attorneys. It was addicting for me to watch.

    An OJ thread would have been 1,000 pages long

    I still go back to AAs celebrating the verdict. Many were celebrating a black man beating the system, I get that. But many appeared to believed he was innocent. Now nobody believes he was innocent. Not sure what changed.

    Not positive about the numbers but I heard a report a few day ago that 40% of AA still think he is innocent and at the time of the verdict like 60% thought he was innocent.

    I avoided most of the TV coverage, but constantly heard about updates in the case from people. It really was all people talked about for 2 years from the car chase to the 35 million civil verdict.....

    Which folks do you think would have defended his innocence?
    I thought he was guilty as sin. I had plenty good arguments with my barber on that.

    Arguing with a pro-OJ guy with ready access to sharp pointy objects and razors. Good call.
