The jury convicted him because they hated him, not because they didn't have a reasonable doubt.

This is nearly, literally, a high tech lynching.

I hope you never have to sit in front of a jury that hates you


I hate all murderers. And I would think that the average law-abiding citizen feels the same. Do you think OJ was innocent?

you make absolutely no sense.

The jury has been sequestered - I have not heard any report that "they hated Scott Peterson" We can only presume they might.
The jury found Scott Peterson guilty beyond a reasonable doubt as it was required to do.
It must be either "nearly" or "literally" a lynching, it cannot be both.
I hope you are right about having to sit before a jury that "hates" - the voire dire is designed to eliminate that possibility.
So you hate all murderers - that is useful to know.
I don't pretend to know what the average law abiding citizen hates.
The jury found that O.J. was not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
I believe O.J. was guilty as the civil case demonstrated.

They found the blood of his wife and the other guy he killed in the drain of OJ's shower. So, yes I think he was guilty.

The jury may have hated him, but I think his own words & lies on tape convinced them he was guilty. His own words & actions caused the hate!
