Oj Simpson Murder Case

Why would a successful football star throw his life away? OJ Simpson, who previously and still continually accused of murdering Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, was an American
Football Star Player, winning the Heisman Trophy in 1968. Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were both murdered outside of Nicole’s condo, and many believe it was OJ, but was it really? In the controversial court case of OJ Simpson, the verdict correctly appointed him innocent and acquitted him of the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman because his arthritis would have made it very difficult to commit murder, evidence proved him innocent, and his son had issues with knifes and continues to experience this.

He can turn very violent as he had been in a violent fight with his former girlfriend and has cut her hair off with knifes before. Jason had not been questioned during the trail, but he was looked at to see where he claimed he was at.. His alibi for the night had been the restaurant he had a job at but the time clock and punch out looked odd and irregular (Killer). Therefore it shows that it could have been changed and set straight. He should have been interviewed and seen as a suspect throughout the case. There is substantial reasons as to why Jason is the murder instead of OJ.
In the controversial court case of OJ Simpson, the verdict correctly appointed him innocent and acquitted him of the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman because his arthritis would have made it very difficult to commit murder, evidence proved him innocent, and his son had issues with knifes and continues to experience this. OJ didn't do it. You should always look into all the facts and suspects before accusing someone of something. Granted he is serving a thirty three year sentence for breaking and entering and robing, but before that happened, what would have been the point if he had everything he needed and his life was

    Nonetheless, Terrill and his three friends were convicted of rape and murder on a false confession. Feeling intimidated by police authority and the prosecuting team, they pled guilty in order to serve a lesser sentence. Fourteen years later, three different Innocent Project groups took on the case and discovered that their DNA was never fully put into the system, proving that the semen of the men did not match that of the crime scene. Officials discovered the real culprit; however, he was already dead by that time. The police discovered that “the offender was Johnny Douglas, by then deceased, who was one of the first people that police interviewed about the Glover murder in 1994” (Center on Wrongful Convictions).…

    The death penalty kills people and it could be a faulty conviction. There have been many cases where the DNA was not tested before execution and it resulted in innocent people getting killed. An example of an innocent person killed is about Carlos DeLuna who was convicted in 1983 and executed in1989. According to Executed But Possibly Innocent, “A Chicago Tribune investigation released in 2006 revealed groundbreaking evidence that Texas may have executed an innocent man in 1989. New evidence uncovered by reporters Maurice Possley and Steve Mills casts doubt on DeLuna’s guilt and points towards another man, Carlos Hernandez, who had a record of similar crimes and repeatedly confessed to the murder.” This is just one of the many cases where innocent people are killed for no reason.…

    Justice has to be served and when Mr. Ewell attempts to cowardly murder the children, he is stopped and killed by Boo Radley, another mockingbird in the novel . Even though Boo did technically break the law and even though it would be a very simple case for Boo to win, Mr. Tate believes Boo did a good deed for the town and covers up for him and states simply “Let the dead bury the dead”, because everyone knows Bob Ewell is responsible for the death of Tom Robinson. He also doesn’t shine light on Boo because knows it would destroy him to go out into public after so many years of seclusion and tells Atticus that “taking one man who’s done you and this town a great service an’ draggin him with his shy ways into the limelight-to me, that’s a sin.” (Lee 370)Scout understands why Mr. Tate did this and tells Atticus when he asks her if she can understand that Mr. Ewell ‘fell’ on his knife she responds with “Yes sir, I understand”, “Well it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird.” (Lee 370) Daren Felty, a critic of this book agrees with this…

    Today, I Barbara Teller will inform you all on how the death penalty is just a desperate attempt in search of “justice” blinded by emotions, to prevent other families to go through what I did. You would have thought that throughout the years we would have evolved from this form of punishment that is revenge caked by law, unfortunately not. My son was put to death for the 1992 murder of 70-year-old John Watson of Covington. But no hard evidence had proven he was at the scene of the crime. In fact, shoe prints taken from the dirt around Watson’s body were made by feet smaller than my son’s, 13 latent prints collected and tested by authorities didn’t match his fingerprints, furthermore a testimony made by a neighbour was later found out to be incorrect and inaccurate.…

    Though a large population of America opposes capital punishment, the opposing side must recognize that there are many reasonable points that defend the death penalty. Many argue that the death penalty “offers ‘closure’ to victims and their families” ( Mario, par.2), and that “the justice of death for murders still outweighs everything else” (Dobbs, par. 2). A criminal should be put to death if he committed the crime of cold blooded murder. For instance, a day after July 30, 1978, a gang seized and robbed a family who tried to help them after the gang’s car got a flat.…

    On the contrary, pros on death penalty argue that the risk of making mistakes is very small, and that there is no credible evidence to proof that an innocent man was killed. Since 1976 when the death penalty was reactivated there has been no mistake. This claim is false since there are many exonerations after the death penalty had been carried out. For example, a 1995 execution of Griffin for the murdering Quenton Moss. He was later found innocent when an eyewitness who testified against him came upfront and admitted to the murder.…
