Surprised?

A ‘jury of his peers’ (which contained exactly zero African Americans) found O.J. Simpson guilty Friday of all 12 counts in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas, Nevada, casino hotel last year.
::: maybe they define ‘peer’ differently out there in Vegas … ::: 

Simpson, 61, and his co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart, 54, were charged with a dozen offenses stemming from the sports memorabilia heist. Stewart was found guilty of the same charges as Simpson.

The two men could spend the rest of their lives in prison. Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass set sentencing for December 5.

If you weren’t sure what to get them for Christmas before – now you know.
Soap-on-a-rope.

    It hurts people that actually are victims of racism when you imply the reason he was found guilty was the all-white jury. Plus, look at OJ’s peers. Who does he hang around with? White people! As I see it this jury WAS his peers. It’s a real problem in America that racism is used as a reason when things don’t go a minority’s way.

    Shelley — what I think was being pointed out is obvious — in the same way that if there were no white women on a jury for Susan Smith or some such. Peer is someone like you — in gender AND race. Perhaps when everyone ‘gets it’ we’ll all get it and insulting comments like yours don’t have to be made.
    OJ is not a boy scout and is I’m not making ANY comment on what I think of his guilt but I do agree that it’s odd that a judge would seat a jury with no black minorities on it. I’d think that would give instant grounds for appeal — but I’m not a lawyer … just someone that would hope to have actual PEERS on a jury if I’m ever so unfortunate as to need one.

    The Oreo responds: Yeah, Cookie, you white people get so ornery when things don’t go your way. You with your safe neighbourhoods and your jobs (well, some of you, anyway :))

    Missed you on Friday. What’s a fella got to do to hang with the Cookie? Once again, you leave me and Mr. Cookie hanging. And you know I wasn’t gonna be down for watching the Buckeyes take the conference lead when my school got beat by the coach Florida fired. I’m just saying…

    Hey now — that whine wasn’t MY line! I think that (dis)honor belongs to Shelley, who’s probably ironing her long white robe right about now …

    On the other deal — sorry about that! I totally planned to go since the ‘going away guy’ is headed to my old stomping grounds 🙂 but I was wiped from all my cookie baking!!

    Yeah, that was my indirect way of teasing Shelley, who obviously didn’t know The Cookie is vanilla-flavoured and simply assumed you were chocolate 🙂

    The Cookie baking cookies; how appropos 🙂 What kind did you make? And how happy was Mr. Cookie about his state’s team beating up on the Cheese Crew?

    Those damned Badgers had him peeved right up until the last two minutes!
    BTW — ‘nilla is good and chocolate is yummy — but they’re truly best when you mix ’em together!

    That’s what I’ve always thought 🙂
