    Ever thought it might be wealth privilege, i.e. affording the best lawyers money can buy to work on the legal technicalities , I guess all black felons get early release if you are correct

    I assume you have both read the report

    no heard a brief out line of the appeal on the radio

    def seemed to be some dodgy procedures in the original trial

    Yes which took two years of expensive lawyer time to weed out, I doubt any of us could afford that

    or it took 2 years for the legal system to actually get off there back sides and bother to actually sort it

    Legal systems move at a snails pace imo

    That's not fair, it's all above board, ask O J Simpson.

    Regardless of what you believe about his guilt or not...

    One person's 'legal technicalities' is another person's 'miscarriage of justice'...

    Otherwise why have a legal system at all?

    But you are correct about being able to afford the best lawyers...

    And it's just as bad in the UK because the legal aid system has been effectively destroyed!

    Good grief, at this rate there’ll be nothing left in the pot for 'migrants' and 'asylum seekers'!

    We might have to cut back on taxpayer benefits paying retired motor mechanics to potter round the allotment and tip wine down their necks.
