UPI ^ | July 5, 2014 | Danielle Haynes

Posted on 07/05/2014 5:04:32 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Louis Brown Jr., the father of Nicole Brown Simpson, died Thursday, his attorney said. He was 90.

Brown had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, his attorney, Natasha Roit, said, though the cause of his death wasn't reported.

The resident of Dana Point, Calif., founded the Nicole Brown Simpson Charitable Foundation to help victims of domestic violence.

Brown's daughter, the ex-wife of former NFL player O.J. Simpson, died in 1994 along with friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted of her slaying.

At least he died with Simpson in prison.

Too bad Simpson outlived him.

That case was a turning point for me. I could go into detail, but I think you all know what i mean.

RIP Mr. Brown. I am so sorry for your troubles and suffering.

there’s a conspiracy theory out there that OJ’s son committed the murders.

This was one. 9/11 gave me a new outlook on our true enemy and I thought things were improving until the Obama election. Now there are two.

maybe, but only stupid people would believe it.

I watched a majority of tat trial- The onyl thing they did NOT have is video of him actually killing them, and even than I think that idiot jury would have acquitted him.

It was a turning point all right- when blacks figured out they literally could get away with murder.

Yes. 9/11 was a big one for me too. Although I had my eye on the muzz since Sirhan killed Bobby Kennedy and blamed it of “The US siding with Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians”.
Prior to that, planes were hijacked to Cuba.
Then, suddenly, we had Entebbe, Tenerife, Beirut, The Achille Laurel, Abu Nidal, Munich, Black September, and constant suicide bombings in Israel and around the world. I had heard about Al Qaeda and Bin Laden, long before 9/11, but that Day was a huge turning point.

I got my full carry permit right after OJ walked. I figured things would get worse at that point. I was right.

Indeed.

is “Full Carry” the same as “Open Carry”?

Watching folks in 1995 joyfully celebrate the acquittal of an obvious murderer was a pretty clear indication of something rotten in our homeland.

The 2012 reelection of Hussein Obama was proof the rot had won.

Sorry but what I meant to say was I thought 9/11 had brought us together as a country. I thought we could see past the black white thing and recognize the true enemy. Then along came Obama and he brought back the black white thing along with the muzzie thing.

IIRC, he has an older son, not Nicole’s. That rumor has been around since the murders.

Depends on the state. In NY, it’s concealed carry, but permits are issued by county and there are restrictions on what type such as hunting, target shooting, employment, residence, or full-carry. NYC almost never issues any permits. You need to know someone in order to get a permit. They also charge a lot of money for the permitting. Something like $370 which is non-refundable if the police reject your application. No one has really challenged that since so many NYers are so anti-gun.

Oh Yes! You are quite right. The days after 9/11 were amazing in terms of national Unity and racial harmony.

However, the left started in right away, claiming anti muslim backlash(which never happened), saying America deserved it, blah blah blah. The pounding of the unholy trinity(Academia, the Media, and democrats) was relentless.

And then, once the Lyin’ King got elected, race relations in America went back 100 years.

Thanks for the clarification.

I guess what Florida has is “Full Carry” then. :-)

Big Fee, Background check, proficiency test, and I’m in.

Meh. That's not the first time a jury had acquitted a guilty party.

Remember Frank James?

OK. It accounted for the DNA evidence, I realize. But a person has to have means, motive and opportunity. Was this kid even any where near the area at the time ?

When the people celebrating are 0-3’s and 0-4’s and E7’s and 8’s it is more than disquieting. I real revelation about who the racists really are.

I heard that there were women in battered women’s shelters even rejoicing at the acquittal. Might be an urban legend, but if true, how sick.

Yeah. It's amazing how the left embraces the muzzies, even though they would kill most of them for their homosexual and feminists beliefs. Meanwhile the left's archenemy, the conservative merely disapprove of those beliefs and would leave it up to God to mete out final justice.

David Horowitz explores this phenomenon in his book :”Unholy Alliance”.

These kind of “strange bedfellows” always experience a “Night of the Long Knives” shortly after one or the other assumes power.

‘Oh Yes! You are quite right. The days after 9/11 were amazing in terms of national Unity and racial harmony.’

True but what I saw and experienced at an Army MACOM HQ was at first disorienting and then in retrospect very disturbing. The GO’s were lashing out in all directions in an angry disoriented sort of way at the staff both civilian and military. Long time civilian staff who had been involved in operational planning since the ramp up for Panama where treated like potential traitors. The leadership was both actually demoralized because of the surprise attack and then really fearful their tickets would get torn up because various really stupid things that they had done mostly during Clintontime to save money and go along with the stupid ideas that poured out of the Pentagon (such as reducing chemical weapons storage sites to the classification of a chemical waste dump so that security could be dramatically cut to save some dollars). Anything like the boiling rage and determination to pay the enemy back that one encounters in account after account of the reactions of US military after Pearl harbor was totally absent. No one seemed really motivated to want to really smash the enemy hard and not be very interested in collateral damage. Then watching the muted almost apologetic way the people at the very top of the US government spoke was another demoralized. The tone was one of real regret about having to do something that would kill some Muslims along with lots of Religion of Peace crap and demoralizing nagging about how Americans and especially those in the military had to be on so respectful of Islam and all those good Muslims as we tried to fight the few bad ones. These events were the start of a very disturbing and disorienting era in which we fought wars that couldn't be called wars against an enemy that couldn't be called an enemy with a leadership that seemed more interested in not hurting the feelings of Muslims and offending their precious sense of ‘honor’ than in beating the foe to a pulp and unambiguously supporting the people at the sharp end of the spear.

It was but one of many rumors floating around at the time. I don’t know where he was or if he had any reason to dislike Nicole. But I do remember many people took it very seriously.

The Army I saw over a 20 + year exposure has a great many people in the higher ranks who believe they are soldiers and leaders and are neither but they are in reality a species of uniformed bureaucrat. I dubbed them Milicrats and they are very common in the supporting arms. They are pseudo-soldiers and they love wearing BDU’s thousands of miles from any battlefield so they feel like they are some sort of Rambos of the air conditioned office or Patton of the Powerpoint Presentation. The sheer barefaced gall of the enemy to commence operations with an attack right on the homeland and targeted at the symbols of American economic might and the symbol of the armed services didn't produce barely contained rage and a frigid determination to do whatever to kill as many of the people who made the attacks possible as could be done. In reality many men and women with stars on their shoulders were stunned and demoralized by the attack. That tells you what these people are really made of.

I remember a story about OJ in the 60’s when he was just a football player.. He had been in a gang in his youth and was known for fighting with a knife in each hand. Two knives were involved in the murders of Nicole and Goldman..

There is some credible information that OJ didn’t do it. That doesn’t mean he didn’t pay some one though. Read some about “The Casanova Killer” and see if this isn’t more a probable scenario.

Don't be an ass; if you paid any attention to the trial at all, a normal person with average intelligence and reasoning power could not do anything but convict that son of a b#tch.
The only reason he got off is because the LA county court system and the district attorney's office were terrified of riots by the savages in south central and south east LA. How many other conspiracy theories do you believe in.

Its not really a conspiracy theory; its a view held by many who seriously studied the case. If you look very closely at the actual timeline — not the rhetoric by prosecution — they don’t fit with Simpson himself committing the crime. Simpson’s cut finger proved a huge problem for the prosecution when the guys at the airport he shook hands with didn’t notice a cut or get any blood on them. He didn’t bleed in the limo either. Yet his explanation about the cut was absurd and unsubstantiated. There are other issues similar to this — things that don’t wash with the prosecution’s case but that weren’t explained well by Simpson or his legal team.

I was never convinced Simpson did it but also didn’t know why in some ways he acted very guilty. There is no doubt that Simpson lied about a lot — and I don’t believe for a second he thinks some of the things he’s said over the years about the alleged killers. But read Bill Dear’s books and decide for yourself.

Well, I’m pretty well above average (if you want my resume, send me mail) and I wouldn’t have come close to convicting him had I been on the jury. I watched probably 85% of the trial and the biggest questions were the ones not answered by the prosecution — not only not answered but ignored.

The prosecution’s problem was the same as your’s: they never took any other theory than Simpson doing it seriously so they never investigated alternative views to see what evidence there was. How many sources have you read on the Simpson case since the trial?

Being rich like him, IMO he is the kind of guy who would have paid someone in stead of committing it himself. He probably couldn’t resist making sure the deed was done though. That is the evidence you probably see. If you read about the casanova killer, his brother accuses him of the crime and he was in LA at that time.
