Thanks, R18, she was a testament to professionalism and honor for the law.
Chris Darden says that Johnnie messed with your glove so it wouldn't fit:
(LAT) A prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder trial said this week that he believes defense attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. tampered with the famous "bloody glove" that was a key piece of evidence in the football star's acquittal.
During the celebrated murder trial, Simpson tried on bloody gloves and held up his hands in front of the jury box to let everyone see the leather bunched up around his broad palms. That demonstration became a powerful symbol for the defense, summed up by Cochran: "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."
CochranSeveral jurors cited the too-tight gloves as a key reason for voting to acquit Simpson. But this week, Christopher Darden, one of the prosecutors on the case, told Reuters news service and a law school audience that he believes Cochran manipulated the glove.
According to the news service:
On Thursday, during a panel discussion about the trial at Pace Law School in New York City, Darden, a member of the prosecution team, declared: "I think Johnnie tore the lining. There were some additional tears in the lining so that O.J.'s fingers couldn't go all the way up into the glove."
Darden said in a follow-up interview on Friday that he noticed that when Simpson was trying on a glove for the jury its structure appeared to have changed. "A bailiff told me the defense had it during the lunch hour." He said he wasn't specifically accusing anyone, adding: "It's been my suspicion for a long time that the lining has been manipulated."
A prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder trial said this week that he believes defense attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. tampered with the famous "bloody glove" that was a key piece of evidence in the football star's acquittal.The glove incident was seen as the pivotal moment in the 1995 trial.
At the time, Darden tried to explain how the glove would not fit Simpson by bringing in expert Richard Rubin, who "testified that moisture had caused the extra-large leather gloves to shrink nearly a full size and lose much of their elasticity," according to a Los Angeles Times report. Rubin said "the gloves in their original condition would easily go onto the hand of someone of Mr. Simpson's size."
From The Times article:
He added that he tried an experiment after court Thursday: He put on a pair of latex liners like the one Simpson wore, and tried to put on his own gloves. Pulling them over his hands, he testified, was more difficult with the latex liners.
Darden then picked up a line of questioning he had ignored Thursday, asking Rubin about when, why and how much leather gloves shrink.
Wearing a cheery Snoopy tie and looking relaxed, Rubin testified that gloves can shrink up to 15% if they are drenched in moisture. Even if stretched, the crime scene gloves could never return to more than 92% of their original size, he said.
"These gloves," Rubin added, "will never return to their original size and shape."
Cochran died in 2005. But others who worked with the defense rejected Darden's charges as a total fabrications.
"Having made the greatest legal blunder of the 20th century," Alan Dershowitz told Rueters, "[Darden's] trying to blame it on the dead man."
So what is the background of the gloves? During the trial, prosecutors tried to show they actually belonged to murder victim Nicole Brown Simpson (who was killed along with Ron Goldman).
According to a Times report:
Bloomingdale's buyer Brenda Vemich identified a charge-card receipt, signed by Nicole Brown, for the $77 purchase of two pairs of Aris Isotoner gloves.
She testified that the gloves Nicole Simpson bought on December 18, 1990, were called Aris Isotoner leather lights -- the same expensive style, she said, as the gloves found at the crime scene and at Simpson's estate.
But on cross-examination, Vemich acknowledged that she could not tell from the receipt what size or color gloves Nicole Simpson had purchased.
As I've said many times, OJ never killed Nicole and this guy, did. He murdered a woman in Tampa the same way and he was in California when Nicole was murdered.
Anyone with half a brain should have been able to see that there was no reason to kill Nicole. OJ would have never killed her. It was all because of a dirty cop setting him up and the media, leading the public around by it's nose, just an example of racism in America.
OJ: Rot in jail. Die in jail. You murdered two people and got away with it. And now you're being punished regardless of how the punishment is coming or for what crime.
Please! OJ Simpson's hands never ever, ever would have fit in those gloves, they were planted.
Why won't you just admit it? OJ didn't really have a motive. He needed his ex-wife to care for his children. Do you really think he wanted complete care of his youngest children? Think it through.
"Do you really think he wanted complete care of his youngest children? Think it through."
Please, rich people have nannies or they can just dump the kids on the maid or housekeeper
Hey, OJ, are you keeping your knife sharpened for next time you get married?
God, you assholes are nothing more than sheeple. OJ didn't kill anyone and he's being persecuted and jailed for doing what any right thinking man would do.
Some guy robs you...you know who he is, you go get your stuff. Any man with a good set of balls would have done the same.
You mean like Yo ho ho and a bottle of cum?
[quote]OJ didn't really have a motive
It was a crime of passion, not a premeditated one.
Wouldn't you rather have the kids real mother looking after them? Does OJ seem like the type of guy who would mess up his life by killing his ex-wife? It simply never happened. OJ was framed and all the media could think of was this great trial they could cover. And everybody wrote a book, everybody got to be on TV. Some freak with a knife knew where she lived, knew she had expensive jewelry and didn't know Ron was stopping by. It's as simple as that...oh and a racist cop. Nothing new when it comes to a racist cop...nothing new at all.
Oooh oooh! Pick me Pick Me!
You OJ fan-retard-moron-cretins need to get your empty heads out of your hero's asshole (where you're no doubt blowing a torrent of smoke): he wrote a book called "If I Did It" where he more and less admitted to it. He was a CONVICTED woman-beater before he killed Nicole. And every piece of OJ's behavior over the years has shown him to be a classic, narcissistic psychopath. You OJ fans are disgusting little lapdogs.
"And everybody wrote a book, everybody got to be on TV."
You know who wrote a book? OJ himself! He wrote a book called If I Did It which no innocent person would do.
"Wouldn't you rather have the kids real mother looking after them?"
Ever hear of Drew Peterson? Lots of men have killed the mother of their children. Many, many women are killed by husbands or ex-husbands.
Did Drew have a great job? Was Drew a celebraty? Seriously, most of you could not think your way out of a paper bag...you would have to wait until someone came to guide you out.

Look who's talking

Because everyone remembers playing in the snow as a kid with leather gloves and getting them wet, and how that made them shrink up so much it was extremely difficult to get them on again. OJ didn't have to pretend it was very difficult to get them on, his pretense was that it was impossible.
