It might be helpful if you actually read the entire article, but I did in fact comment on the Blake acquittal:

adressing the comments from leif of 4/8.again,you are off base.your article dated 3/30 rhymin johnny r.i.p.contained nothing about the blake aquittal.perhaps
you need to go back and check your own work.as far as the legal system goes,i can cite many examples of the fact that the criminal justice system is flawed,racist,and un-fair.the oj stuff,was exceptional
lawyering,coupled with shoddy police work,and a bigoted,
racist police officer named mark fuhrman.have you ever heard of AMADOU DIALLO?this was a african immigrant shot
at 41 times by rogue police officers in the vestibule of his own house,hit 19 times,some while already on the floor,because he had a wallet in his hand.these murderers were aquitted,and worse yet the trial was taken out of the area where the crime was committed,which was the bronx ny.this is but one example
of a court and judicial system,where there is one standard of justice for "blacks"and another for "whites"
i could reference many,many more.but i will end right here.what can you say to that leif?b.stennett

I did mention Blake in the article I referenced, but that's hardly relevant.

I certainly won't defend a justice system that treats people differently based on their race or ethnicity, but neither will I defend one that treats differently based on the amount of money they can pay for their defense. OJ's getting away with murder does not vindicate the many black defendants who were wrongly convicted - they're still in jail or worse yet, dead.

B.STENNETT

again,leif you are missing the point.your statements are seriously flawed.how do you know oj got away with murder?were you there when the murders committed?and your statement about oj getting away with murder,does not vindicate the many blacks who were victimized,no kidding?you are supposed to be a intelligent person,but
your bias,an affliction that many people like you have,
keeps you from seeing the truth.your arguement against
oj is like the typical racist,bigoted people who oppose
affirmative action.the facts are that in america,affirmative action has always been fine,as long as whites were the only ones who could get it.now that it has been extended to black people,all of a sudden there is something wrong with the program.getting back to oj,its not his money that saved him,something that most whites do not recognize,but it was his intelligence/foresight in recognizing robert shapiro,was not the man for the job,and replacing him with the great johnny cochran,who blew away an inept,police dept along with the infamous mark fuhrman.
lastly,if money was the save-all,what happened to mike tyson,when he was indicted for rape?he pd millions of dollars for a bunch of incompetent impostors,who took his money,and did nothing for him.here again,your theory
on money getting you justice,is bogus,when you are black
there is still no guarantee.this is the last time i will
attempt to communicate to someone like you.i hope you wake up soon though,because america,is on the way out,because they refuse to recognize,this world was created for human-kind,to be enjoyed by all the peoples of the earth,its resources are not to be controlled or monopolized by one country or one govt.or should i say
a world order which is run by the rich,elite with america,at the helm,trying to dominate globally,using
terrorism as the excuse.wake up leif,and use the power of your pen,to help people,not continue the lies perpetrated by the people who control this world.
