O.J. Simpson’s Las Vegas trial got underway with opening statements today. The trial kicked off a day after the one year anniversary of the alleged raid at a Sin City hotel that sparked the criminal charges.

 Simpson and co-defendant Clarence ” C.J.” Stewart are charged with a dozen offenses including robbery and kidnapping.

Last week, 9 women and 3 men were selected from a jury pool of 500 to serve on this jury. There are six alternate jurors, among them two African Americans.

One Response to O.J. Simpson’s Vegas trial begins today

    I wonder how many so-called Americans (you know…the ones that say they stand for truth and justice) have already determined OJ’s guilt/ innocence before hearing the facts of this case? Is this indicative of the democracy that patriotic Americans embrace, fight, stand and die for on domestic or foreign soils?

    The way I see it, if you’ve already come to your conclusion w/out hearing all of the facts of this case you’re either an eye-witness who didn’t come forward, someone that wants to misuse our Judicial System as a tool to seek revenge for a perceived injustice stemming from his last case or a simple-minded, garden variety racist!

    Either way, shame on you for being that part of what’s wrong in Americans and within the American judicial system, and more importantly, for still having the nerve to boldly wave our flag :-<
