    OJ Simpson back in the news

    They found a knife that had been buried on his property. Unbelievable! This is really the case that never goes away. And right in the middle of the miniseries with Cuba Gooding & John Travolta.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    He can't be charged again. He was already acquitted.

    The cops who had the knife blew it big time, and should be drawn & quartered.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    How would they go about doing that? He's already been acquitted in a criminal court. Any attempt to retry him for the same crime will result in the trial judge telling the prosecutor with varying degrees of courtesy,

    "The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution still exists. Get the **** out of my courtroom and quit disgracing your profession."

    Maybe, maybe, if the Feds are feeling profoundly motivated they would have half a chance in hell of finding something to charge him with to get around double jeopardy. Otherwise, the Fifth protections here are as close to absolute as any Constitutional right gets.

    I was hoping for something to take the media's focus off Trump, but I never imagined this.

    Re: OJ Simpson back in the news

    Perhaps they would do something like lying under oath,BUT as he is still in Jail for the other thing he did,it may be mute.

    And as Hawk mentions a distraction from the Trump circus.

    They may be able to pull off a perjury charge (not betting money on it and statute of limitations may kick their ass for trying) but that probably won't invalidate the original acquittal so he still doesn't face murder again. The only two ways that I've seen Double Jeopardy bypassed are

    1) If the same act is both a state and a federal crime, the Feds can jump in regardless of how the state case goes. The feds don't like doing this though and won't without really good cause.
    2) There's a precedent where someone requested a judge trial and then bribed the judge to acquit him. The ruling there is that for double jeopardy to apply, you actually have to be in jeopardy the first time and as a bribed judge negated that, he could be retried. There is no existing precedent of doing that to a jury ruling to my knowledge.

    I hope this doesn't cause a flare-up of racial tensions, but I think it will.

    When you really think about it,he kind of was punished in some ways,not to mention the armed robbery charge that put him in Jail. Karma is a real Bitc*
