Yes, I watched the two big O.J. Simpson shows this spring (the O.J.: Made In America — the 30 for 30 documentary entry from ESPN, and the dramatization American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson).
Yes, I thought he was guilty all the way through the original trial.
I will admit the dramatization made me ever so slightly doubtful, mostly through it’s portrayal of corrupt cops.
But in the 4th hour of the documentary, a point was made that (for me) seals his guilt. It was this: what would Mark Furhman have to have known before he allegedly planted the bloody glove?
The glove, you see, was discovered on Simpson’s property before Simpson had been tracked down and contacted.
So, to have some reasonable hope that planting the glove would help frame O.J. Simpson, Furhman would have had to have known that O.J. did not have an alibi for the time of the murders. If Furhman had planted the glove, with blood gathered and transported from the crime scene, and O.J. did have an alibi, then Furhman probably would have done hard time.
For me, that’s a clincher.
