  • Hard to believe it has been 25 years already. I wonder if The Juice has any new leads on the real killer.

    Cue Norm Macdonald.

  • Eh, it's done with.

    I understand how emotions can influence people to seek justice. But the most important thing overall is that thankfully whoever killed Nicole and Ron appears to not have killed anyone else since then. So I think it's best to just let this go. Even if you're a friend or family of one of the victims.

    I disagree that turning your back on justice at the sacrifice of the judicial system is not the most important.

    What?

    I said the most important thing is that nobody else has been killed. I would not trade that for justice . That is why I ranked it more important.

    If something comes up, sure open the investigation back up. But don't get emotionally hung up on things you can't control.

    Correct. No double jeopardy on the same charges.

  • I believe new evidence only applies to appeal or request for new trial by the defense. Once acquitted, that's it.

    Are there any criminal attorneys here who can weigh in as to whether that's accurate?

    Why are you so emotionally weird? What happened to you?

    If someone murdered your sister/daughter or son/brother, and that person literally got away with murder, you wouldn't be this cavalier with giving your "ahh, just move on with your life" advice.

    OJ's lucky he's still alive. Many families would have seeked vengeance illegally, or by their own hands.

  • This has been decided. Stupid American justice system can't get much right.

    I drove past that murder scene address daily when I was a handyman in SoCal and always thought about how this guy got away with murdering 2 people.

    Take a look at OJs defense team....Dershowitz is involved in the Epstein case of $ex trafficking and Cochran is dead.

    If you think our court system is fair then try being a broke person trying to defend yourself. You have seen the results of this so many times.

    Because people are emotional about justice, liberty and equality and it's vast impact on the foundations of our society.

    What?

    You mean nobody from the Goldman and Brown family?

    Because the killer was locked up for years after spending years in prison for other felonies?....Oh...OK

  • I know it’s not on the same level, but our broken justice system is why Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband won’t spend 1 day in jail for bribery. There is supposedly “overwhelming evidence” against them. But their hot-shot attorneys will find some loophole. Plus, it only takes one idiot on a jury.....

    You're probably right, but Loughlin and her husband could have taken a plea deal, and didn't..............so the prosecutor added more charges (racketeering I think?), so me thinks they're now enemy #1 of this whole scandal and the judge and prosecutor are going to want to make an example of them not owning up to what they did.

  • Nothing will happen to them because of MONEY. If you have never seen any high profile cases, look at the people that are defendants that have money. They are never handed sentences that people that don't get.

    This has happened for many decades. This country's "justice" system is a joke.

    Not necessarily.

    Martha Stewart went to prison, she's the richest whitest celebrity ever. The Desperate Housewives in Jersey lady and her husband both spent time in jail, Bill Cosby, Anthony Weiner went to pervert rehab for like 21 months, the Subway kid (Jared?), R. Kelly's going to prison, guaranteed...................and Huffman's sentence is going to be at least 30-60 days in jail I bet you.

    Not saying you're not right, obviously our justice system favors the rich who can afford the best legal representation. But my point is Loughlin and her husband pissed off the courts when they didn't take the plea deal, and it might bite them in the ass.

    it just seemed like you were saying I said something that I didn't think I did. Either because i did and wasnt aware of it or because i didnt and you werent aware of it. So the "what" can be applied to whatever fits the bill.

    People can control our broken judicial, legal, political and law enforcement systems by caring a lot and taking those concerns to voting booths, protests and other means of civil balances and disobedience.

    Your thoughts on this are narrow and naive. They are also extremely condescending. But you knew that.

    Not necessarily.

    Martha Stewart went to prison, she's the richest whitest celebrity ever. The Desperate Housewives in Jersey lady and her husband both spent time in jail, Bill Cosby, Anthony Weiner went to pervert rehab for like 21 months, the Subway kid (Jared?), R. Kelly's going to prison, guaranteed...................and Huffman's sentence is going to be at least 30-60 days in jail I bet you.

    Not saying you're not right, obviously our justice system favors the rich who can afford the best legal representation. But my point is Loughlin and her husband pissed off the courts when they didn't take the plea deal, and it might bite them in the ass.


    Martha Stewart went to a Country Club as far as a prison goes, yes she was in a prison but it was more a work release environment.


    Stewart was convicted of insider trading, Laughlin paid someone to get her kid into college.........they didn't plow through a group of special needs kids outside a school high on crack.

    We don't need them to go to San Quentin and do hard time. I think sometime we just want to see rich people suffer, when justice is just fine. Guarantee you Martha Stewart isn't going to do illegal trading anymore, that's what we're after.

    Kellen Winslow's sentencing will be very interesting.

    By every definition of the word, what I said what was not a straw man. Just trying to explain the source of why I think the way I do in this regard.

  • Dude obviously has issues. CTE may be one of them but he has a serious $ex addiction. Can't believe the Hawks actually had him for a brief time before this all happened.

  • I think we need to make a concerted effort to not feed fender.

    He's a contrarian troll that turns literally every discussion into a way to who** attention. I honestly don't think he even grasps this, he just loves attention...........it doesn't matter to him that he comes across as a sociopath most of the time.

    Si, can you sticky this in the forum rules?

  • When I was a kid, my bike got stolen. I whined and b!@ch every day. Cried. Had attitutude problems.

    Then one day my dad sat me down and said I needed to move on. So I did. And I was much happier.

    Sounds like you guys are saying that isn't good advice to give or follow. Either that or you think it depends on what the crime was?

  • I lived in SoCal when this $h!t and the Manson murders happened. It had a prolific affect on ME and many I knew to know this stuff happens and so close. You can say "let it go" but that doesn't always apply unless one says I don't give a damn about anything except my own world.

    I also lived in Wash. when Ridgeway and Bundy were killing women like they were cattle. Regardless of self help books or any other crap one tries to throw on the wall and have stick. These were people brutally murdered by others. OJ got away with it, everyone knows it. Bundy and Ridgeway got caught eventually. But not after a LOT of due dilligence by determined people.

    These images are burned into my memories forever regardless of how someone says "let it go".

  • Most experts agree that holding onto negative emotions for lengthy periods of time is not healthy. I am not sure why anyone would disagree with me.

    And don't call it a straw man, either. Because it's not. Fact: that is all I have said about this. Fact: You guys are disagreeing with me. Therefore, you are disagreeing with the idea of people moving on from negative emotions. Can i ask why?

  • Regardless of what an expert says. Every human is different. These things are different for all of us and to say we need to homogenize ourselves is going to an area where every person needs to address their own beliefs and applies to their lives.

    If someone killed any of my kids or grandkids my view would be totally skewed from if it were YOUR kids or grandkids.

    You need to grasp that.

  • I do grasp that 100%. It can be hard to move on when somebody close to you dies.

  • Two people were brutally murdered. But yeah, just get over it? Let it go? :roll:
    Let's ask the two families if they should just "let it go"
    He flat out did it, he knows it and everyone else knows it. He had the $ to get away with it. POS

  • 25 years later? Uh yeah. You are only hurting yourself if you are hanging onto negative emotions qnd letting them negatively effect your life. Sorry for wanting people to be happy. How rude of me.
