Wow helen.. guess you don't know the law..
first up the 2nd trial was a civil case basically he was found guilty of wrong-full death. Anyone can be charge with that he was it was his ex-wife and she lived in a house own by him. If you were married and your husband was in dope and he got high and overdosed his family could sue you for the same thing. because by law you are to protect anyone within you home or property. So in short the second trial means nothing, it's a money ploy.
2nd -- OJ was a former football player who was in good shape. Former(1979) you know how long ago that was, then when would you ever see someone getting stabbed to-death yes you have no weapon but you have a mouth and feet "would you stand there?" guess you would wait your turn. Ron Goldman was 24 worked out tried to defend his self, what type of protective clothing can you wear to kill 2 people with one knife and not get a scratch. When OJ hit nicole the first time he was scratch all up... so I guess this time the protective clothing protected him.
3rd He was Lying and waiting for them - Who going to miss a large "Black guy" in the bushes...why would he do it outside why not with a gun.. and bring them inside?---because it was a "MOB HIT" it was a message to Nicole and Ron to pay their debt, to OJ to pay your wifes debt....
4th why did he run in the Bronco -- from that statement I can tell you are "White"... ask around most "maybe not all" black men feel funny when a police gets behind them in the car because they know they have to prepare for the Bull crap that is coming even when don't do anything wrong. So if your wife/ or husband came up dead and history has shown "You are not going to get a fair trial" would you roll out or stay because you innocent.

and about him admitting to Rosie Grier? why no tape or any supporting information?

Everyone's forgotten that the 2nd trial, the civil trial, the jurors found him guilty.
Secondly, while he was in jail, he admitted to Rosie Grier, former football player, actor, activist, that he killed them. He was overhead by guards but that was not introduced in court because it was hearsay evidence.
Thirdly, the argument that one person cannot overpower 2 people is totally bogus because OJ was a former football player who was in excellent shape who was used to overcoming half a dozen of tacklers on the field. Furthermore, he was armed with a knife and his victims had no means of defence except their hands. That fact that OJ was not injure in any significant manner may be due to him wearing heavy protective clothing. Plus he was lying in wait and had the advantage of surprising his victims.
Fourthly, the fact that he ran to avoid custody is a sign of guilt. If he has nothing to hide, he would not have run away in his Bronco.
The reason OJ was found not guilty was due to a great defensive legal team, poor prosecution strategies, botched police investigation, and sympathetic black jury.

A murderer knows whether he killed someone or not, regardless of his plea. The facts have a way of coming out. In OJ Simpson’s case, he admitted his guilt at his wife’s funeral and screamed “OK, I killed the b----!” at Rosie Greer during a prison ministry visit. The prison confession was not allowed, as I recall, because it was held to be protected by the seal of the confessional, an ancient (and good rule) applying to confession to an ordained pastor. If I have the person right, Rosie Greer was a volunteer “lay” minister, as they call them. In my opinion, that does not apply to OJ’s case, especially since it was overheard by witnesses.
Oh I think OJ did it. He just had the money to hire good lawyers that got him off.
If he confessed to Rosie Greer, why didn't he confess to the state. And why would he confess to Rosie Greer? That shit just does not make since. The confession was not used because there was no confession. That was just another lie the state tried to use to persuade the media, knowing the jurors were paying attention to it.

Have to agree with this part of your statement. I do think it was a mob hit as well. But I think Nicole Simpson was using and had used drugs for many years. She was probably bring the drug dealers into her home when she was married to OJ. He may have gotten upset and started beating her at this time. But still having major debts with the mob isn't wise. Nicole Simpson wasn't a angel. She was known to be taking drugs and sleeping around when her and OJ were divorced. That best friend of hers that wrote a book...

Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted (Hardcover)
by Faye D. Resnick, Mike Walker.

According to the book,Nicole Simpson kept playing mind games with O.J. While sleeping her way through different men and one woman.
If Nicole Simpson owed the mob money for drugs and she hadn't paid up.
OJ was set up to make it look like he did it.
Whatever happened we may never know.

Rosie Greer was a preacher. He couldn't testify against OJ. Besides they were friends from there old football days.
What about when OJ stated he killed that B????h at her funeral?

My question is, why would he confess to Rosie Greer, but not the state of California? Why not confess to his children or his mother? Why a friend? There was no confession.

The "confession" was not allowed because it would be here-say...basically that was a rumor, nothing proved no tape nothing written.
Another way you can tell it was a railroaded case was because in most murder cases certain things are left out purposely because they do not want the media to give away all of the evidence. Such as the Ramsey case. They do this in hopes that the "killer will unknowingly admit guilt because they and the police are the only ones that know" That was why the guy was ruled out as not the Killer in the Ramsey case because many detail he could not explain that the killer would instantly be able to explain. They could not trip OJ up on this because he did not know all of the details, that later came out. Nicole and Ron Goldman were in a relationship they were also into drugs. If you research you will see that their murder was true to Gangster or organized slaying. The amount of blood and the events show that the killer has done that more than once. Most people would have thrown their lunch with the smell of that much blood. Plus it was very silent which indicates more than one person was there. Plus because it was silent suggest that Nicole and Ron tried to talk their way out of the attack and were then killed and didn't have a chance to scream or yell you help. If OJ jump out of the bushes I'm sure Nicole would have screamed her head off she had no problem running to the cops when OJ "allegedly smacked her, however the police wrote he had more bruises and scratches than her". And lastly the fact that the knife used could have been planted and the real killers used a sharper knife to quicken the attack.

I think that the public want a murder to close the case on this crime and OJ fits the bill. It's funny because the vast majority of people who think he is guilty are white. and the majority who think he is not-guilty are black...."so I guess it is about race"
Does anybody care that Nicole and Ron Goldman was living off OJ and the money he generated ? Now his father is trying to do the same thing jacked up.....

I know it make you guys mad but I understand where OJ is coming from...

Why not confess to a friend? OJ wouldn't want this evidences brought out in a court. It would mean everyone would know he was guilty. He didn't want that! While in jail OJ..maybe got to feeling guilty. Rosie Greer was a preacher and friend. Who better to confess to?

The so called over heard confession to Rosie Greer was never allowed into evidence because it was hear-say and it did not support the prosecution, many years after the trial one of the security guards came clean about the confession and said what he heard was a man broken hearted over losing his ex-wife needlessly -Nicole apparently had asked OJ for a large sum of money and OJ being hurt and angry about her and him not getting back together like he thought they would refused to give her the money,
OJ beleived that if he had given her the money that she asked for she might still be alive, he felt he signed her death warrant by denying her the funds and hence that is why he stated he was guilty.
It is funny to me how so much information regarding this case & circumstances of the case appeared and then just as quickly disappeared especially if when the evidence could not help bring about a guilty verdict. I definately feel for him and his children whom by the way totally beleive their dad to be innocent of the crime of killing their mother, those children have been old enough to run away for years and could live with Nicoles family if they wanted to but they stay right their in Florida and support their dad. And as far as the book is concerned they supported him with that as well the title was still in the works and designed to do just what it did cause a buzz, but OJ never stated anything about being guilty in it, from what I have gathered it was all done in a loving way!
I cant imagine being hated by america for a crime that I did not commit and most folks only think he is guilty based off limited knowledge! I love America but sometimes it sucks for some!

And for the glove.... come on! Do you really think he wore those gloves? They found one glove at the crime scene, soaked in blood and the other at his home brand new, not a drop of blood to be found. Sounds kinda weird to me.
Get your facts straight before you chirp. The glove found at Simpson's home had Simpson's blood, the blood of both his victims, as well as hair and fibre evidence on it. The defence wove a fantasy that a cop dipped the glove in blood at the murder scene, transported to Simpson's home and planted it...doing all this while not knowing whether or not Simpson would have an airtight alibi. Any person with a shred of intelligence would see just how implausible that would be.

It's simply not plausible. The glove was found in the early morning after the murders. Why would a cop plant the glove if:

i) He had no way of no way of knowing if Simpson had an alibi? For all the cops knew, Simpson could have been at the other side of the country for a week.

ii) He had no way of knowing if there were eye witnesses to the murder? It would be awfully stupid to plant a glove only to find out later that some other thugs had been witnessed committing the crime.

iii) He had no way of knowing if the killer(s) had already confessed. Again, awfully stupid to plant a glove if some thug was already down at the precinct condessing to the crimes.

The people that think the cops planted the glove are the same people who think 1000 CIA agents brought down the twin towers.
