You're entitled to your opinion, but look at the facts. The average deliberation time by a jury on most murder cases is 8-10 hours. And these are cases presented in less than a week. With the Cross trial, you had more than 2 weeks presentation, on admittedly circumstantial evidence, and they returned a verdict in 4 hours. The OJ trial took 4 months, and the jury was out 3 hours. A high profile case stirs up an emotional response in people. For the good or the bad, jurors are going to either want to punish someone as in the horrific Curran crime, or they are going to believe in the integrity of a "hero". The prosecution gave the jurors a great case both times. Yet one was guilty and one was an acquital. With the Curran case, the jurors wanted someone to pay after 8 years. They found enough in the testimony to convict. In OJ, they wanted to believe he was not guilty, the jurors admitted as much after the trial. All it took was a hint of possible tampered evidence, and a "I plead the 5th" by Mark Furman, and they let him go. I'm not here to comment on whether I think they were right either time. I'm simply saying that jurors have an emotional tie to a trial in high profile cases, and they convict or acquit based as much on those feelings as they do the evidence.
