    OJ is now spending all his time and $$$$ trying to find the real killer of Nicole and Ron.
    Yep, and I’m selling my ocean front property in Arizona.

    As we reflect on the absurd verdict in the OJ Simpson case, we should also take a moment to remember the miscarriage of justice that occurred in the Rodney King case. Both were instances where a jury blatantly disregarded the facts of the case, and let their feelings do the talking. This is perfectly legal; it’s called jury nullification, where the panel of twelve decides that even though a defendant broke a law, they disagree with that law—or its application to a particular individual. Thus, the OJ jurists essentially said “if you’re going to let those white policeman go free after beating Rodney King, we’re going to let an iconic black man off the hook for double murder.”
