RIP :,-(

And like DK said, that was what he was paid to do. Get OJ off, and somehow he did. And for that, I can respect him.

How is that respectable?

He put a dangerous man, a murderer, who didn't even deserve to live back on the streets?

Don't give me the "it's his job bs."

The man was an aid to crooks and fought against justice. Some great man that is ;-7

This is why I can't stand the sheer concept of a lawyer attempting to set a guilty man free. :-P

Would you prefer that criminals get presented to a jury with no representation? And the judge or jury can decide to sentence them after hearing only the prosecution? Johnny Cochran took part in a very important part of due process. I agree, it's a dirty, but deffinetely necessary part of a democracy.

He wasn't a great man IMO. He used manipulation to get not-guilty verdicts. I'm sure he was good at it, but I don't praise him just like I don't praise a crack dealer for being over his weekly quota. If there is a hell, Johnny'll be there right about now.

Well said ;-D

Don't understand how anyone can have respect for a man doing such a dirty job.

I wonder if either of your attitudes would ever change if falsely put on trial for a crime....... :-?


(no, not implying OJ was falsely put on trial, simply defending the institution of criminal defense)
