Boycott OJ's Book
Posted: Mon Nov 20, 2006 3:59 pm
Here is what I would do to Amazon or B&N or Borders - buy this scumbag's book, keep it for 2 days and return it for a full refund. Hey, they have a return policy and why not use it against them. If everyone does the same thing, it sure can piss off all the booksellers who want to make some blood money like OJ does.
Anyway, just a suggestion.

You sound so familiar to me....can't quite put my finger on it.
...at any rate, it doesn't matter now, the book, the tv show everything has been pulled, but in reality who would want to waste gas money and time to do something like that, just not buying the book would have been more than enough.
Peace (or should I say peace out?)

I sound familiar? That is quite a compliment. Perhaps I represent a lot of voices. Maybe I should run for a public office.
Yes, the OJ case is closed. But a lot of ugly faces have been exposed during this episode of the Simpson's never-ending saga. He was aquitted in the court, but at least he is found guilty in the public opinion.
As an African-American, what your opinion about OJ? I watched the verdict live in a school cafe - all the black students cheered loudly and all the whites were stunned. Two people were killed and one killer walked free. Everyone who has half a brain can figure that out. I didn't understand what the black folks were cheering about.

It's a compliment if you want it to be. In reality, it was that you reminded me of someone who fell off the face of this board. Someone who possibly helped start this site and since you seem intent on keeping the posts going, makes me wonder, who you are?
In response to your question, again, I can only speak for myself. I didn't watch the trial closely, but a friend did religiously and told me what transpired daily as well as the news reports I watched regarding some of the witnesses' testimonies, Fuhrman's actions, the tainted crime scene, the evidence, etc., etc. Most people wanted him convicted just on the fact that he ran, if you can call it that. But that doesn't explain the fight or flight syndrome. Based on the above, the prosecution presented a weak case that showed lots of doubt. So, in the words of the late Johnny Cochran, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit." To me, that didn't just represent the glove.
Did he do it and get away with murder? Probably...he wasn't exactly a saint towards his first wife, but the case was extremely flawed and that's what acquitted him. It's one of a few times, if any, a Black person was acquitted on flawed, tainted evidence...many have been convicted on much less.
Why would he want to write a book, IF I killed them...is beyond me and is completely stupid whether he did or not, but that's my opinion. Then again, he played the cards that were dealt to him and got paid, so perhaps he's not so stupid afterall.
