What's New?

Working the Backlog
There's a lot of stuff people have submitted to the site over the past 8 years that hasn't been reviewed yet. ChuckyG and Red Ant are currently trying to review as much of it as possible. If you'd like to help, check out the request for editors message I posted on inthe00s. I plan on adding more sections to the site and improving what's here once the existing material has been reviewed.

I was at a beach house in Galveston, Texas with my mom, brother, and aunt when we saw it on tv. I don't remember their reaction exactly, but i know they were positive he had done it, so they were probably pissed off at how ridiculous it was.

I was in seventh grade sitting in social studies when the principal set up the radio by the intercom and broadcast it through the entire school. I remember it taking forever to read the charges and then finally the virdict. We all sat in stunned silence not believing that he was seen as not guilty.

I was in my High School World History Class (10th grade) when the verdict was read. One student pulled out his walkman and tuned in to a news station to listen to the verdict; after it was read, HIS WALKMAN WAS CONFISCATED by my teacher!!! It's stupid, but finding out all of this had to be done.

I was in 5th grade in dallas.. we were all learning about ships or conquistidors or something, when out teacher, Mrs. Geddie pulled out a T.V. we were all so excited and some kids got kicked out for screaming. Finally everyone got quite. and the other students snuck in and we all watched The jury denounce every charge on O.J. Personally i thought he was innocent.. but i always give people too much credit.. It was probably him anyway.

I was in 6th grade, sitting in the back of my World History class, and we were the only class in school that got to watch the verdict live on tv. Our teacher just wouldn't back down, and we all thought we were soooooo cool... :O)

I was in the 3rd grade and we were all sitting on the carpet after recess. One of the teachers walked in (and we all knew what was coming) "Not Guilty" she said. I came home and sat down. I began to watch CNN where they showed the clip of the verdict about 1500 times.

I was working for a lawyers' office at the time. Both lawyers, the legal assistant, and I were sitting in the conference room watching the small TV. When the verdict was read, we all looked at each other, of course in disbelief.

I was a senior in highschool. when we heard the verdict was going to be read the whole school got into the auditorium and they put cnn on the projector and the wrong verdict was read off.

I was a sophomore at the University of Notre Dame, in Alumni Hall (Go Dawgs!) in Sean Dixon's room (you don't know him). We had ordered some Paps John's for the occasion. I was eating a peppercini as the verdict was read. When the "not guilties" had been read, the entire hall was completely silent. After the initiall concussion, while the Hall was still silent, I heard someone down the hall, doubtlessly one of my fellow Caucasians (Notre Dame is mostly lilly-white), exclaim: "Let's riot!"
