Quote of the Day Year

The Superficial: “I love how Robert Shapiro was able to rationalize that someone else might have murdered Nicole Brown-Simpson yet can’t bring himself to appeal Lindsay Lohan’s jail sentence.”
Update: IDLYITW: “In June 1994, O.J. Simpson drove to his ex-wife’s, Nicole Brown, Bundy Drive condominium and fatally stabbed her and her then boyfriend, Ron Goldman. Brown was stabbed multiple times in the throat (which left her nearly decapitated) and had her vertebrae severed. During the 1995 trial, the prosecution presented the following evidence: DNA showed that blood found at the scene of Brown’s murder was O. J. Simpson’s. The odds it could have come from anyone but Simpson were reported to be about one in 170 million. DNA analysis of blood found on a pair of Simpson’s socks found in his bedroom identified it as Nicole Brown’s. The blood had DNA characteristics matched by approximately only one in 9.7 billion, with odds rising to one out of 21 billion when compiling results of testing done at the two separate DNA laboratories. DNA analysis of the blood found in, on, and near Simpson’s Bronco revealed traces of Simpson’s, Brown’s, and Goldman’s blood. Hair consistent with Simpson’s was found on Goldman’s shirt. The left-hand glove found at Nicole Brown’s home and the right-hand glove found at Simpson’s home proved to be a match. The bloody footprints were identified by FBI shoe expert William Bodziak as having been made by a pair of extremely rare Bruno Magli shoes, of which it has been reported that only 299 pairs were sold in the US. The large size 12 prints matched Simpson’s shoe size. Robert Shapiro, O.J.’s defense attorney, looked at that said, “F**k that. We got this.” At 10:07 a.m. on October 3, 1995, after only four hours of deliberation the previous day, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. This man just walked away from Lindsay’s case.
