THE CHASE ON YOUTUBE
There's a lesson about Ubama in there somewhere.
He sounds like a guilty man on the tape.
20 years has gone by quickly, hasn’t it?
I was sitting with my first baby and my dad eating spicy Popeyes chicken watching that chase just a bit farther up the 405 from OJ’s crib.
A LOT has changed in my life since then.
“I see OJ, he be scared...” “He’s kinda slouching....”
Living in Brentwood at the time, closer to Nicole than OJ, it was HELL for awhile there. So much traffic, many lookyloos, exits from the 405 closed off. Nightmare.
That “chase” ruined my rehearsal dinner the night before my wedding. Spend a fortune on a nice place, great cuisine, jazz quartet and all anyone could do was put their mugs in front of CNN and watch that fool. I was livid.
I remember how outraged ABC was that they had been pranked and how they were sputtering on the air. They couldn't even say his name, just referred to him as "some radio DJ".
Al "A.C." Cowlings invoked his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination for the second consecutive day Wednesday during a deposition in the wrongful death lawsuit that accuses O.J. Simpson of responsibility for the June 12, 1994, murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman.
Cowlings took the 5th on questions about any knowledge of Simpson's activities between the morning of June 13, 1994, when Simpson returned from a brief trip to Chicago, and June 17, 1994, when the two friends briefly disappeared and then took police on a televised, slow-speed chase before Simpson surrendered to the police.
This is from the civil trial.
I don't remember Al Cowling testifing in the criminal trial?
At least we can ‘thank’ Seinfeld for setting history straight in regards to
the ‘low speed chase’-complete with the golf angle (w/ Kramer driving)
the re-enactment of the JFK shooting with help of ‘Pretty Boy’ Keith Hernandez, Newman and Kramer (again) AND the ‘Magic Loogie’.
It is ‘Festivus for the Restiovus’
He got away with it, and he knows it. The shoe-prints in the blood, the FBI matching them to a particular Italian shoe make of Simpson's size, Simpson denying he ever wore such shoes, and the later pictures showing him wearing them. Blood evidence in his car and home, the list goes on. And he got away with it.
“The town was search for us everywhere
But we never will be found”
Ol' lady: "You sick bastard!"
“Where the white women at?”
The Captain Janks prank call to Peter Jennings
The funniest thing was that Al Michaels had to be laughing the whole time before he finally clued Peter Jennings in.
I remember by bro-in-law cursing and screaming because they took off the Knicks playoffs to televise that crap.
Here’s Al Michaels talking to Howard about the call
“He sounds like a guilty man on the tape.”
I heard recently that 60% of blacks now think he is guilty.
FWIW. Improves my view of them, somewhat. Somewhat.
I always wondered why blacks supported OJ so much in the first place.
The guy was the Whitest Black Man in America before the murders.
Yep - I worked at Montana and San Vicente, across the street from Mezzaluna....it was a mess.
No you didn’t. This was the start of kill whitey.
Blacks could have cared less if Orenthal was guilty or not.
The hate runs very deep. Thank your public school system.
I seedah OJ! I seedah OJ!
It wasn’t anywhere near the start of kill whitey. OJ wasn’t even a football player yet when kill whitey started.
Actually, this was the first televised performance of kill whitey. Please tell me another event that could top “The Crime of the Century” as deemed by the press.
o it wasn’t the first time kill whitey showed up on TV. You seem to have forgotten about a little group called the Black Panthers. Not to mention the Rodney King riots. And there were a couple of dozen crimes of the 20th century, one of them in 60s was supposed to inspire black people to hurry up and get their kill on cause they weren’t killing whitey fast enough. Sorry, kill whitey pre-dates OJ by a whole quarter century.
They supported him because of their fear of what would be taken away by the white community if a wealthy , successful, publicly venerated, black man was convicted of acting like a murderous common street thug.
Nah. OJ went on for weeks on CNN. Rodney King didn’t play TB for the Bills and the Panthers were isolated to the inner city.
OJ was the black man’s plight. It didn’t matter that he was guilty. Justice was acquittal regardless of guilt.
OJ ran longer because of the trial, but it wasn’t first. OJ wasn’t the black man’s plight, OJ was revenge for Rodney, Rodney was the black man’s plight, OJ was proof they actually could win once in a while.
I recall that poor bastard being dragged out of his truck and smacked with a brick. That could be a starter.
I was in Phoenix at the time. I’ll cede this one to you.
It was a toilet, and that was the Rodney King riot. In 1981 Eddy Murphy spoofed killed whitey on SNL with the great “prose and cons” poem Kill my Landlord, in 1993 some rap group didn’t get the joke and actually made that the title of their album. And I haven’t even mentioned the Watts Riots in 1965.
Why would you mention WATTS. America didn’t care.
If I recall ADAM-12 was 1970 and all was right in the world.
Dirty Harry came down in 1972 and eradicated the evil bastards.
Charles Bronson came in and eradicated anything messing with his world.
I guess we didn’t understand.
Oh people cared. Watts was huge, it became the rally cry and inspiration for 300 more riots. It was really when kill whitey started.
Ah, my old stomping grounds. I miss Brentwood a lot.
Not me....I worked there, but lived up in Santa Clarita - the commute was a total ballbuster.
