THE PEOPLE VS OJ SIMPSON - With the recent airing of the TV miniseries, The People v. O.J. Simpson, the public is once again fascinated by this spectacle. It’s a rags to riches to rags story. A gifted young man wins his way out of the projects (San Francisco Hunter’s Point), only to end up tried, sued, bankrupt and in prison. What happened, you might ask? It all changed on a summer night in 1994, when a secluded sidewalk was discovered awash in blood. That of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman … but they were nothing more than friends. What came next was characterized as the Trial of the Century. An instant star maker, the key player’s names are famous, even today. Kris Kardashian (Jenner), Johnnie Cochran, Al Cowlings, Christopher Darden, Robert Kardashian, Robert Shapiro, Kato Kaelin, Marcia Clark. Since then, OJ lost a wrongful death trial, was evicted from his estate, was investigated for drug trafficking and is currently imprisoned for armed robbery. Check out this American classic true crime story!


  1. I remember watching this unfold in real time and being unable to believe how everything was turning out, from the slow-speed freeway chase to the media circus and shocking verdict. Stranger than fiction, for sure.

  2. All I remember is that the coverage of him being 'chased' interrupted the Yankee game. I was highly disturbed.

  3. I'm not going to watch it. I thought it was rediculous that the trial was broadcast on television. I was so glad that I was on the east coast which meant they took a lunch break when it was 3 pm here and I could still watch General Hospital.
