OJ Guilty. Surprised?

 

We know in the US there is no double jeopardy.  But OJ was served justice poetically.  Article: OJ going to Jail. I would even venture to guess he wasn’t even surprised.  I declared earlier when it was reported that the jury was all-white that OJ would be found guilty.  Not that the jury being white was the determining factor but of course that played a role in the decision.  Most people believe OJ was guilty before and got off because of the high standard of reasonable doubt.  In this case, I don’t think the standard was so high and inevitably he would pay for his original crime.  Now if he had an all-black jury would he have been found guilty?    Would you have voted guilty or innocent in this last case?
