O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a friend of hers, Ronald Goldman. For this reason, I can't say that O.J. is a murderer, but allow me to call this portion of my article: If He Did It.

Prior to becoming a murder suspect, O.J. was loved as a Hall of Fame running back, a Hertz spokesman, an actor, and a man with a million dollar smile. That all fell apart when he became the prime suspect in a brutal murder: it was a suspicion that led the police on the world's slowest high speed chase down a California highway.

Some people believe he was acquitted because of his celebrity status, while others believe it was because of mistakes the prosecution made during the trial. Whatever the reasons for his acquittal during the criminal trial, they didn't stick in the civil trial. On February 5, 1997, O.J. was found guilty in a wrongful death suit and ordered to pay over 33 million dollars in damages. With pensions protected from seizure, he is rumored to still be able to live his acquired lifestyle leaving those who believe he is guilty angry and under the impression that the justice system is an oxymoron.
