Simpson Murder Trial: 10 Years Later
OJ Simpson was in town this past weekend for Necrocomicon which, as Cinematical points out, seems an odd choice since his film career didn't feature much in the way of horror (and if OJ now counts as a modern-day boogie man popular like Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kreuger and Michael Myers, well, well we don't quite have the words to explain how that makes LAist feel) but he probably wasn't talking much with people about the murders of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Simpson...no matter how much he was getting paid.
So, if you want to know what's really happened in the ten years since he was found not guilty, you should turn your TV towards PBS tomorrow evening for Frontline's The OJ Verdict.
A decade moves quickly. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that the country was consumed with this trial. We don't think much about it and its polarizing effects anymore but this is the second time this year. All retrospectives about the case now have to include the sad passing of Johnnie Cochran in their remembrances.
