irregardless of how you feel about the man, he represented alot more minorities, than wealthy people. If all you know of him is OJ, than you really don't know much.

PLEASE... spare me, the world is now a better place without him...

If he had helped the down-trodden without need for compensation that would be one thing... give me a break...

I think alot of people forget how justice works here in America. It's innocent until proven guilty. Also why shouldn't someone being accused of some crime not have the best representation and why should Mr. Cochran not represent them? He was doing his job, he was upholding our judicial system to the best of his ability. Someone has to be on the "bad-guys" side or we would basically just skip the whole trial and throw them right into jail. </rant>

Oh and was shocking news.

My biggest problem with this man was the fact that he thought everything was a case of race ... I feel he spent to much time following Malcom X then following reality.

A jury made up of mostly minorities. He knew actually what he was doing, he did it good. It made a total joke out of the judicial system ..

Actually, the justice system in America IS a joke. What happened in that court room and many others across the states would never happen in a court room in any other country.

Elmer "Geronimo" Pratt Spent 27 years in a prison for a crime he did not commit, johnny helped him out.
Ron Settles was found hung, in his cell, the police said he committed suicide, the coroner found different, funny how an investigation was launched only after Johnny Cochran took the family case.
yes he did help, underprivileged people...Like I said before, if all you know of him was OJ, than you dont know...

the alternative would be systems that think it's more important have a convition then it is to save an innocent man

I've never seen anyhting that worked with perfection., cars computers, governemnt, elections...nothing

what makes anyone think the legal system should work with perfection?

as an innocent man, I'd rether go through our process then any other...this system is designed to try and make sure innocent men are not convicted

at the expense of some guilty being set free?

of course...it's one of the the prices we pay

I'm not talking about the conviction nor the fact that a person is innocent before being proven guilty. This is a matter of fact in most counties and so it should be. There is nothing much wrong with the system in the US as such.

I'm referring to the 'show' which lawyers in the US seem to put on and the fact that lawyers tend to become the centre of attention, a judge in say the UK would not tolerate this. Also money seems to play a bigger factor in the US than anywhere else. True the justice system in most countries is not perfect, but when people become 'celebrities' and make money for being part of a high profile case, wheither they be in the jury, a lawyer or defendant, then it is this more than anything that makes a joke of the US justice system.

Either way you look at it. Cochran helped more guilty people get off than any other lawyer in history. If you also notice he only helped minorities. On a rare occasion he would help a white defendant.

I agree that money does have a lot to do with it. I don't care who you are, OJ is guilty. He knows it, the judge knows it, the lawyers know it, and the public knows it. But OJ is just a sample of the people that Cochran got off and the chance to run free.

The guy was a shmuck, plain and simple. Good Riddens to him and his garbage. I hope he burns for all eternity .. I now rest my case on this. I was not going to say my thoughts about him, but recent posts made do otherwise ...
