    Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz is hooked on 'The People Vs O.J. Simpson:
    American Crime Story' because he was a member of O.J. Simpson's so-called
    "Dream Team." Dershowitz says the squad of lawyers being called the "Dream Team"
    is a farce. "It was a nightmare team," he said. "The lawyer's egos were clashing.
    Everybody was trying to take credit. We won, not because we were good but because the prosecution so was so bad."

    ...they won because they had jonnie l cochran on their side. like him or not the man had a brilliant mind. robert shapiro was known in l.a. to be a deal maker. he was working on oj copping to a lesser charge. it was jonnie cochran who saved ojs ass. barry scheck did a good job too.

    The prosecution was worse than dreadful.

    They have him try on a shrunken, bloodsoaked glove.

    ...tom messeraeu who lawyered for robert blake and michael jackson is a fucking superb lawyer. he does a lot of criminal pro bono work for people he believes are wrongly accused. extremely smooth in a courtroom and really effective.

    The second Marsha Clark allowed a jury full of blaeks, OJ was home free.

    Dude it's was botched by police and prosecution on such a grand scale. How with so much damming evidence do you lose this case? It was slam dunk trial but the evidence against was only outweighed by the incompetence of the lapd

    Johnny Cochran stole the case from Robert Shapiro when Shapiro went on vacation in the Caribbean and Cochran convinced OJ to make him lead attorney while he was gone.

    And Mark Ferhman used the N word, so OJ was clearly not guilty

    Christopher Darden should have never been on the case. Johnny Chochran basically bullied him into asking OJ to put on the gloves. It is clear that OJ was coached to spread his fingers to make it impossible to get the gloves on. The biggest blunder of the case in a case that had many, many blunders by the prosecution.

    ...thats because shapiro wanted him to plead guilty to something even a lessor charge. shapiro rarely tried a case. his reputation was as a deal maker who coud get you out of a problem. jonnie cochran came in and felt oj was an impotant hero to black people and that he could get him off. shapiro wishes he was half the man as mr jonnie.

    Disagree, If they had video of OJ killing those two, he was getting off. Johnny played the race card and wisely for him. The blacks were in it to stick it to whitey by letting this guy go free. They have all said too many blacks were murdered. lynched etc by whites and this was payback. Not sure what they won other than pissing off white folks though.
    Funny thing is OJ was more white than the PGA tour. He socialized with whites and had no use for blacks. However, it all comes down to the common denominator...race.

    I still blame Marsha Clark and Chris Darden far more than the police. The police did make some big mistakes, but the prosecution allowed the case to be about the police and the crime lab and not the murder itself. They basically allowed the Dream Team to set the agenda even after they rested and the prosecution were setting their case. And they made the science go way over everyone's heads rather than what Barry Sheck did which was to make it simple and seem totally unreliable.
