A Woman Managed To Shirk Jury Duty On The O.J. Simpson Trial By Lying About An 'SNL' Sketch
Huffington Post - over 1 year
In the mid ‘90s, the O.J. Simpson murder trial dominated the news and our cultural consciousness. The obsession for all things O.J. has returned in recent months, thanks to FX’s “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” and ESPN’s epic five-part documentary "O.J.: Made in America." There’s so much to say about Simpson that it’s only in Part 4 of the 464-minute doc that we finally get to the trial of the century. The trial became an all out media circus that captivated the country from the moment the former NFL player was arrested on June 17, 1994 to his acquittal on Oct. 3, 1995. And when millions weren’t tuning in to CNN or Court TV for up-to-the-minute coverage of the trial, there’s a good chance audiences were laughing at its many preposterous moments on late night. Despite the fact that this case was about two brutal murders, the crazy court proceedings made the trial an easy target for jokes.  “Made in America” features a short clip from the cold open sketch that...

Courtney B. Vance: We're Paying Now for Not Paying Attention to Lessons of the O.J. Trial
Huffington Post - about 2 years
If America had paid attention to what was really going on at the O.J. Simpson murder trial, says Courtney B. Vance, we might not be suffering the trouble and the death we see in our cities two decades later. American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson, an intense 10-part series that launches Tuesday at 10 p.m. on FX, digs into the byplay, intrigue, maneuvering and general gamesmanship of the ultra-high-profile 1995 trial in which Simpson (played here by Cuba Gooding Jr.) was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Vance (above with Gooding) plays Johnnie Cochran, the attorney who guided Simpson's legal "Dream Team" to a come-from-behind victory that stunned much of America. Vance says it shouldn't have, but suggests he knows the reason: because too many of the people who followed the case made the same mistake as prosecutor Marcia Clark (played by Sarah Paulsen). "She didn't understand what the case was about," says Vance. "The ju...

Dahmens ask Council what Pierz needs in a store
Hometown Source - almost 3 years
By Terry Lehrke, News Editor Allen and Jill Dahmen, owners of Pierz Foods, are  in the planning stages for a new store. They recently signed a purchase agreement for land formerly occupied by Pierz Implement and came before the Pierz City Council with one question: “What do you see Pierz needing in a store?” The Dahmens said that question will be asked of the community during a community meeting to be held so people can make known their wants and needs. The Dahmens want to build “green” so their store is environmentally friendly. The couple asked the Council what it wanted in a “green” business, since the city is pursuing Green Step City status. Allen said building a “green” facility could be taken two ways — building it to save utilities or building it with materials that were eco-friendly. City Administrator Scott Saehr said what would be desirable from the city’s standpoint would be a business that created jobs, was convenient to get to and had a way to connect to young r...

Here's the Latest in Race-Baiting Conspiracy Theories From the Right
Mother Jones - over 4 years
As we wait for final arguments and then a verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, Paul Waldman alerts us to the latest round of Zimmerman-related race baiting from the right-wing media. It turns out that in the days after Trayvon Martin was killed, the Justice Department sent a team of mediators down to Sanford to try to keep everybody calm. This team was universally praised for its efforts....until a couple of days ago: Conservative media have a different take on the CRS's efforts to diffuse the anger over the case, which came to their attention when the conservative group Judicial Watch obtained documents detailing the CRS's expenses of a couple of thousand dollars for their time in Sanford. In their reading, it's a Justice Department conspiracy, in which Obama and Holder are working with Al Sharpton to organize anti-Zimmerman protests. "Docs: Justice Department Facilitated Anti-Zimmerman Protests," said the Daily Caller. Fox News, which has been treating its viewers to t...

Murder in Pretoria? OJ detective says 'Blade Runner' evidence is overwhelming
Fox News - almost 5 years
Attorneys for Oscar Pistorius, the so-called Blade Runner, are poking headline-grabbing holes in the forensic evidence arrayed against the South African double amputee, but none of it changes facts that show the Olympic sprinter killed his model girlfriend, said former LAPD investigator and author Mark Fuhrman. The former lead detective in the Pistorius case is facing an attempted murder charge stemming from an on-duty incident, prosecutors may have been too quick to say steroids were found in the Pretoria mansion of the suspect and detectives missed a bullet lodged in the bathroom wall. "So what?" says Fuhrman, who as a detective had a major role in the O.J. Simpson case and then went on to write several books analyzing the evidence in various high-profile murders. "The defense attorneys are doing what defense attorneys everywhere do," Fuhrman said. "When you look at the facts, even omitting all the forensic evidence the police have produced, it's crystal clear. "Here i...
