Individuals found not guilty of a crime cannot be retried even if new evidence is submitted that would likely convict them. According to the 5th amendment of the US constitution ‘No person
shall be subject for the same offense to be put in jeopardy twice of life or limb. Please write to your legislators to demand that the wording of the 5th amendment be changed so that clearly guilty individuals do not get away with murder-literally!!!

Below is a sample letter which you could send to your legislator to
express your dissatisfaction with the current Double Jeopardy law. You
can cut and paste the letter below and add your 2 cents in. Then you need
to send it to YOUR legislators. The US Congress consists of the Senate
(there are 100 senators total -2 per state) and the House of
Representatives. There are 435 members of the House of Representatives
which are apportioned among the states by population.

your state.

Sample letter to the legislator

Dear ____:

The Double Jeopardy Law that arises from the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution contains flaws in the amendment that should be reworded. The clause states: no person shall be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb. We believe that there should be changes made in the wording of this law, such that if new evidence were to arise, by the way of DNA samples for example, that an individual, who was once acquitted can be retried. We are asking you together with your fellow legislators to amend the constitution so that people truly guilt of a crime could be prosecuted.

Thank you: signed __________

Who is my legislator?

Please take my letter and send it to your legislators or make your own letter to inform your legislators your opinion on double jeopardy. If the legislators receive a lot of letters, then they may consider changing the constitution.

He diserves it. He got away with not going to prison for killing two people, he is a killer, let him pay in someway for what he did.

His only crime? I. Guess you forgot about him hiring a couple of thugs to go with him to a hotel room and robbing some guys who OJ knew had his memorabilia. OJ pulled a gun on them. And I am betting that at least 80% of black Americans who thought he was innocent of murder, have since changed their mind.

You should do YOUR homework. Find out why Shapiro quit OJs defense team. And an innocent man doesn't take off down a highway threatening to blow his brains out in his friend's car or sell a book caled "if I did it" and know facts that the police never revealed. ESP I am guessing huh

They do it EVERYDay.. What they do is charge you with a 'lesser crimee' hence making it a 'New Crime'.. Hence they avoid the 'double jeopardy'. Unless you have money then they wont bother to avoid CASE PRECEDENCES!!
