    Did you support the civil case against OJ?

    Or were you at that point of the opinion that justice had been done and the matter should be dropped? The prosecution in that criminal case was incompetent too, and the jury in OJ's criminal case gave what I believe was a fair verdict, based on the evidence and law presented. But an awful lot of people were of the opinion that a fair verdict in that case was not necessarily equivalent to justice, or that OJ was thereby innocent.

    In Scotland, there are three possible verdicts in a criminal trial: Guilty, Not Guilty, and Not Proven. We live in the USA, and here in the George Zimmerman trial, he was found Not Guilty. However, we all know that, at best, the evidence supported no more favorable verdict than Not Proven. His innocence literally cannot be established.

    My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
