OJ killed his wife, Kato says (Now he tells us)
New York Post ^ | 09/20/2012 | Cindy Adams

Posted on 09/20/2012 2:47:07 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Unless you were born after 1996, you know Kato Kaelin. In the Year of Our Lord 1994, Kato Kaelin was famous. Hot. Headlines. Front page. In everyone’s mouth. On everybody’s lips. TV, radio, newspapers. Kindergarten kids crayonned his name. More mentions of Kato and lawyer Kardashian than today’s mentions of Kanye and Kardashian’s kid Kim.

He was a star of O.J. Simpson’s trial for killing his wife, Nicole. At their house that night, he saw, he heard. He knew who, what and where. The prosecution labeled Kaelin a hostile witness. Unemployed, a freeloader, did he tell the truth then? The world smelled O.J.’s guilt. Simpson went free.

Ask Kaelin today, this very minute, if O.J. — currently jailed in Vegas on a separate charge — killed his wife, and I repeat his exact words:

“The statute of limitations has now passed . . . so I can now say . . . yes, he did it.”

Why didn’t he come forward and tell the truth? Ask why he let O.J. Simpson get away with murder, and I repeat his exact words:

“I was too scared. I was terrified.”

Time and his moment have passed. Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here together in memoriam of Kato Kaelin’s dead career. He says: “People hated me. I’ve been spat upon. They threw gum in my coffee.”

Little bit of a personality, little bit of a talk-show host and guest, little bit of a D-list actor in Z-minus movies, little bit on game shows, poker tournaments, reality things that didn’t make it. He’s now starting a Web site to answer questions, chat personalities, maybe do a book.

Maybe for perjury but not for murder.

great timing on the info, right?

There is no statute of limitations on murder. However, I’m not reading, in this blurb, Mr. Kaelin’s saying that he saw O.J. kill Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. He can say what he thinks is true, but that doesn’t make it true.

OJ was acquitted and cannot be retried for murder unless the feds want to make a violation of civil rights case against him

Doesn't matter. Simpson was tried and found not guilty. He could go on Letterman and tell the world he killed her and he can't be tried for it again.

Unfortunately, you cannot try a gut twice.

However, if OJ serves his full sentence in Las Vegas, he will either die in prison or will be only fit for an old folk’s home when he gets out.

I said it then, I will say it again.

The people responsible for OJ's acquittal are: Gil Garcetti (Politics/change of venue)

Judge Ito (never should have allowed the cameras and other issues)

The Prosecution team (incompetence)

In some states there is no S of L for perjury. Kato’s info won’t get OJ convicted, but could land Kato in jail.

I would also suggest that the acquittal was assured once the jury selection was made.

Doesn't matter what Kaelin says. Everyone involved, including the cops, defense attorneys, victims family etc, knew he is guilty. Even the jury knew it.

Huh?

You'd prefer a system where the state can try you again and again and again and again for the same crime?

The state failed to prove their case.

The defense team proved a cop planted evidence.

The best the jury could do was hang. I don’t like it either, but I would have been very hard pressed to convict.

The jury selected was the result of the change of venue from Santa Monica (where it should have been) to LA (where Garcetti wanted it). The DA of the Santa Monica district had political ambitions and winning the OJ case may have been a decisive factor.

Of course not, even in OJ’s case. The only regret I have is that he got away with it.

I sure hope he can be tried. I'd love to pass sentence:

I hereby sentence you to spend the rest of your life as Kato Kaelin, brainless hair boy douche, washed-up never was, and
perennial trivial pursuit answer.

There was sufficient evidence to convict OJ, that was never introduced because of their incompetence.

Vince Bugliosi's book on the subject is very damaging to the prosecutors. Bugliosi volunteered to assist, pro bono, the prosecutors, had they accepted, OJ would be behind bars for murder, not for a drummed up "kidnapping" charge that he otherwise would have walked on.

I still recall the look on Bob Kardashians face when OJ was acquitted, he could not believe it.

The defense team proved a cop planted evidence.

As I recall, the defense proved that the cop used the n word in his prior history, which in their minds proved to the jury he had to have planted evidence.

It was a long time ago, I didn't pay that much attention, but that's what I think happened.

There’s an aging hippie who shops the same grocery store as me. The first time I ever saw him he overheard me tell my son, “look, there’s Kato!”.

BTW, if they had evidence and had proof as you alleged, that one of the cops had actually planted evidence in a high profile double murder trial, do ya think the cop would not have been prosecuted and sent to prison?

No one buys that.

The blood that was found on the gate latch was demonstrated to both be OJ’s and to have contained the exact same preservatives used when a sample is drawn from a vein as it was by the police for evidence.

Det Furman was shown to have carried a vial of OJ’s blood to and from the crime scene before it was entered into evidence.

The National Enquirer had said that OJ spent the night, prior to trying on the glove, banging his hand up so it would be swollen and bruised.

Seriously ~ that was very true. OJ, et al, knew he was guilty but of what?

The prosecutor cut the jury off at First degree murder (not the technical term but you get the idea). That meant that if they found him guilty of Second, or simple manslaughter, or anything else, they'd be letting him loose.

The evidence supported something less than premeditated murder but it did support something.

Prosecutorial misconduct may lie behind the outcome ~ but we'll never know (without waterboarding somebody).
