Editorial Reviews

It was the most watched TV broadcast ever; the verdict in the O.J. Simpson case brought America to a standstill, as tens of millions of people in offices and homes nationwide waited to see the outcome of the most sensational criminal case of all time. AMERICAN JUSTICE examines all the evidence, pores over the testimony and details the complete story of the "trial of the century," from the low speed chase to the bloody glove to the verdict that divided America. In revealing interviews, many of the principle figures--including Johnnie Cochram, Fred Goldman, LAPD Chief Willie Williams and members of the jury--trace the defining events of the case. Reporters who covered the trial reflect on its legal and cultural significance. This is the definitive wrap-up of the sensational trial that galvanized the nation.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I used this video in my Civics class during my criminal justice unit, it was really good. I learned so much, never realized how much evidence the prosecution had against him. My students were shocked with all the evidence he was found innocent, we had to discussed this was the time period before CSI and forensic science shows they are so familiar with today.
NBC Dateline did a 20 year special in June but I enjoyed this video way more, straight to the point and less dramatic.This video is good for your students or just someone interested in the case and what exactly happened.

One thing is clear, the investigation into the OJ murder trial of his ex-wife by stabbing was bungled by the police. This is the case put forward in this documentary.

Regardless of whether or not one thinks OJ is guilty, the information put forward in this documentary is an interesting examination of the case. The documentary contains statements and information from those involved in the trial who were both for, and against, OJ.

Effectively it became a case, at least in the jury's eyes, of police procedure and process, and not necessarily the evidence for or against OJ.

Although the prosecutor, Marcia Clark, was indeed very competent, the police involved were not. And yet it is up to the police to be competent, in order for prosecutors to be able to do their job effectively. The police essentially let her down.

In one very real sense, one couldn't blame the jury, but they could have perhaps looked more at the actual evidence, rather than almost solely the way the police conducted the investigation.

Some details of the case and some of the evidence shown here, some of which was also not discussed in the trial or considered by the jury, include:

-OJ having a badly cut finger to which OJ did not have a response (which was not discussed by the prosecution).

This was a good DVD for understanding basic criminal procedure and legal strategy. It is a bit dated now but most of it is still relevant. A bit slow in places now that the immediacy of the Simpson case has long worn off.
