The OJ Simpson Murder Trial: Five Life Lessons I Learned from the Trial of the Century
By Tracy Miller
Over two decades ago, the not-guilty verdicts on the OJ Simpson case shocked the nation. I am a career prosecutor and this infamous and historic case just happened to be my first-ever case.
After the verdicts were read, I was disgusted with our flawed system and a society, where a trial for the brutal homicide of two innocent people had become a reality TV show. I was saddened about why viewers worldwide were finding entertainment in dancing judges, a fame-thirsty houseguest and a double homicide suspect, that led police on a slow speed chase while the world watched.
With the release of the recent TV Series, American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson and after 20-plus years of reflection, I have realized the trial of the century held several life lessons for me and for us all.
