O.J. Simpson Glove May Have Been Tampered With

O.J. Simpson’s attorney, Johnnie Cochran, coined a phrase during his murder trial which would live in infamy: “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

The glove, as the jury came to believe, didn’t fit, and Simpson was found not guilty of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend, Ronald Goldman. Now, former L.A. District Attorney Chris Darden says that the glove Simpson tried on in the courtroom in front of millions was more than likely tampered with, and he wants an investigation to be formed.

“I think Johnnie tore the lining. There were some additional tears in the lining so that O.J.’s fingers couldn’t go all the way up into the glove,” Christopher Darden said. “A bailiff told me the defense had it during the lunch hour. It’s been my suspicion for a long time that the lining has been manipulated.”

The problem is that Cochran can’t defend himself against the claims; he has been dead since 2005.

“As members of the defense team, Carl Douglas and I were present in court on the day that Chris Darden asked O.J. Simpson to try on the glove,” attorney Shawn Holley said in a statement. “Mr. Darden’s self-serving assertion that Johnnie Cochran tampered with the glove–or any piece of evidence–is false, malicious and slanderous. Almost 20 years later, it seems Mr. Darden is still trying to exculpate himself from one of the biggest blunders in the history of jurisprudence.”

Despite testimony from an expert who said that leather can and does shrink up when exposed to moisture–they were soaked in the victims’ blood–jurors cited the fact that Simpson had visible difficulty pulling the gloves on as the main reason for their decision. Because they were a key piece of evidence during the trial, it’s not known whether an investigation will be started up or to what end.

    It appears that Darden is drinking again and has fallen off the wagon, better attempt to renew his relationship with OMIG chairperson, Doc Johnson’s medical clinic, they might get him a bed at Betty Ford’s. Simpson is paying predictable conjectured dues of imprisonment necessary to swing the pendulum of white racial animus back into balance. They decided in 1994 to hold the fictitious mock trial against Simpson, who was in the back of a limo to LAX at 11PM while his wife Nicole was still alive talking on the phone with her mother. Black racial animus virtually ceased after the Simpson verdict in ’95 when White racial animus exploded. Black racial animus had been still simmering through 1994-95 after the acquittal of all LA police officers in the Rodney King beating and the subsequent burnings across LA in 1992. White racial hostility put black racial hostility back in balance as a result of the Simpson criminal verdict. Read the first book, the second is to come, by one of the OMIG investigators, “PURSUIT OF EXHIBIT 35 in the OJ Simpson Murder Trial and its Hidden Secrets” at amazon.

    Find a pair of brand new gloves exactly the same as those at the trial.
    Same kind, same size and have OJ try them on. Nothing more need be said. They will probably fit him.

    What amazing is how racist some of you Blacks are now without any just cause! You make like you are forced to pick cotton in fields, and the white man is holding you back. GET A LIFE! Lace up your Air Jordan’s and move on.
    You get hooked up with free college, easier passage ways into the military, police dept, fire dept, etc. and you still bitch. You even have a black president, still not good enough. BLAME MY PROBLEMS ON WHITEY!GET OVER IT!
    You don’t know anyone that had to pick any damn cotton, it was 150 years ago.
    If anyone should be pissed and cry racism it’s The Jews. They were practically exterminated 70 years ago, but you never hear them ask for a hand out, or sit around feeling sorry for themselves.
    Get your own shit together, take your own inventory, and get a damn education and job. Stop blaming “whitey”, that card cannot be played anymore!
    Any seriously. Can you stop lying about the OJ trial. HE DID IT, end of story. Karma caught up with his ass, not whitey!
