I was in the 6th grade and we all gathered around my PE teachers car to listen to the verdict. reaction was mixed. Where were you?
And if you weren't born yet or were too young to remember, how do you feel about the OJ trial?

I can't remember where I was exactly but I remember living during that time right in the heart of it and just becoming an adult.
Just a few years before OJ, I watched LA Riot over the Rodney King verdict. I watched a media try to explain away a white man being pulled from his truck and almost being beaten to death because he happened to be on the wrong street at the wrong time. I watched society become a mob and what that means and how people tried to justify it... like there is justification for losing your mind and joining a mob. lol!
A few years later with OJ, I watched the power of suggesting a mob and what it does to reason. It may even influence a jury... or so history may prove...1

I remember actually. I was a little kid about 8-9-10 can't remember exactly and I was with my family and we were overseas.
I was in some kind of sugar high or something and I was just cracking up at the seriousness of the broadcast and my dad was telling me to shut up1
