Was OJ Simpson innocent of murder after all?

Asked by Paradox25 (10174points) June 12th, 2014

A serial killer named Glen Rogers claims to have murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, and the killer’s own brother thinks so too. A witness during the Simpson trial claimed to had seen a white male running from the crime scene.

Apparently OJ somehow crossed paths and met up with Rogers. OJ allegedly sent Rogers to steal, not murder anyone, at Nicole Simpson’s house. Goldman was just in the wrong place at the wrong time according to Rogers. You should read the article before commenting.

He was found in a court of law to be not guilty of murder and cannot be tried for that crime again. However, if what is portrayed in the documentary is true, and if there is evidence to support it, then perhaps O J can be tried as a co-conspirator of a crime that led to a death.

Seems like crap to me.

Sounds to me like someone’s trying to delay his date with Old Sparky.

Does the glove fit Rogers?

Since he was never found guilty in the first place, it is sort of a moot point.

No, no, no, no… OJ did it, and got away with it. He even wrote a book about how he did it.

The LA police screwed up the evidence so bad, we’ll never know for sure.

The feds put the squeeze on OJ because they were thirsty for a big story & the public drank it up.

If if this were true, O.J. would still be guilty of Murder One under the Felony-Murder Act. If someone is killed during the commission of a felony, all the perpetrators can be charged with first degree murder—even if the person killed is one of the perps killed by the cops. Or even if the perps didn’t actually kill the deceased. For example, if someone is startled, falls off a ladder and breaks their neck while the felony is taking place, it is murder one for the perps. So, O.J. commissions a felony to be perpetrated and people are killed during the commission of that felony. O.J. gets murder one the same as the killer whether that was the intention or not.

The L.A. Police screwed up the evidence and the lead investigator turned out to be a self-avowed racist (hater of black people).

And the jury found him Not Guilty.

Do we really need more proof of his innocence?

With all due respect we had 2 dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to kill Americans? What difference at his point does it make? HA!

Was the drug dealer with whom Nicole was killed an American? ^^^

OJ was not innocent of murder, he was just not convicted due to many screw ups starting from the police through the mishandling from the prosecuting team.
@Dan_Lyons Has there been proof that the guy killed with Nicole was a drug dealer? I’ve never heard that before.

Dan_Lyons's avatar

It was stated by the same guy whom the gloves did not fit, @chyna.

“There are three things that Black people need to tell the truth about. Number one: Rodney King should’ve gotten his ass beat for being drunk in a Honda a white part of Los Angeles. Number two: O.J. did it! And number three: Rosa Parks didn’t do nuthin’ but sit her Black ass down!”

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies I had asked my mom that when I watched the documentary with her.

@ucme I still suspect that OJ was at the very least involved in some way, but I’m not sure what to think at this point. It never hurts to be at least somewhat open to other possibilities though.

ucme's avatar

@Paradox25 I agree, but that was just me playing around with words, “squeeze thirsty drank OJ”

This documentary gives much more detail about Glen Rogers (the Casanova killer) and his alleged involvement in the OJ Simpson case. You need spare time to watch it though.
