Ok, just wondering how many people out there think that there should be a way to eliminate the Double Jeopardy rule if OJ writes his book...."IF I DID IT"

Definitely, that is a silly law anyway, if there is new evidence then he should be tried again...the troble with the law is the lawyers are allowed to play too many games in the name of serving their clients...

But what would the "new evidence" be? Writing a book titled "If I did it" isn't evidence. It would, most likely, be considered personal opinion. He's not saying he did it, just saying "If I was going to do it, this is how I would do it". He's not admitting to anything. I could write a book called "If I was going to rob a bank...". Doesn't mean I have, or will, rob a bank. Just my opinion on the best way to go about it. Now, that has nothing to do with whether or not I think he DID do it. Personally, I hope he does write the book and I hope it's a best seller. Then I hope a judge rules that the proceeds will go to pay the 33 million he owes to the Brown and Goldman families.
