This thread is evidence of just how prejudiced folks are when it comes to him. It's justified prejudice, but I can't believe that it doesn't affect every potential juror. But no one cares because it's OJ and I doubt any judge is going to question that as there's nothing to gain and everything to lose by it. It's an incredibly slippery slope.
Well, this was a pretty open and shut case to begin with. Audio of OJ storming into the room, not allowing them to leave, using weapons illegally to intimidate, and stealing personal property. Textbook kidnapping and robbery at gunpoint. OJ's camp couldn't even come up with a defense that would even remotely put doubt into the biggest OJ supporter in the world.
But I do agree with your premise. If the case was less clear, you would be 100% correct.
