  3. OJ got off. Juries do not matter. Racial prejudice, bias for more attractive defendants, etc. Justice system can never be perfect. Unless you're watching the Minority Report.

  7. It's a really sad statement that this is true. Makes you wonder how many people throughout the years have got away from a crime they committed.

  17. Very true that, in a court it's all about persuasion rather than the truth.

  23. "How much justice can you afford?" That has always pissed me off. The rich routinely get away with "murder" be it actual homicide or bilking unsuspecting grandmothers.

  24. Sad truth :( I like the one I heard once where it's like "when you go into court, your future is the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty."
