tv   O.J. Simpson Justice Served  FOX News  July 23, 2017 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
sunday. i'm i can for harris faulkner. thanks for watching. i'll be on capitol hill, o.j. simpson, justice serves starts now.
5:01 pm
>> juice on the loose, thespecie was served. when the parole board now here's the rub. we know the football great got away with double murder. when his ex-wife nicole brown and his friend goldman. here he is serving a sentence between nine and 33 years for a rinky-dink armed robbery in a las vegas hotel room in 2007. i don't mean to dismiss or demand diminish the crime. any stickup involving guns has to be taken seriously. this was mostly caper, notions 11, it was more like the keystone crooks. oj rounding up apostate house and confronting memorabilia dealers were was trying to sell his stuff. the star witness was also the
5:02 pm
guy set up the confrontation. the charming ex-con who secretly recorded the whole thing. >> are you are at? >> i do not think i'm around. the tape is what the tape is. the tape is a rat. the tape is the one explaining i'm not trying to say anything happened differently on the tape. i don't want to see anybody go to jail. that's a serious thing. but we talk about this, he wanted items back. he was supposed to go there until these guys look at buy stuff, he was confident they would get their stuff back, which they did. the first 30 seconds you could hear them apologizing. and then they assisted on the sky inging gs and it turned into an arm robbery. when you go into an armed robbery you do the crime you
5:03 pm
have to do the time. >> geraldo: some people believe that you should be frightened by that. maybe he will cut your head off. >> there's nothing i differ oj for him to cut my head off. maybe charles manson will come in, head off but i didn't do anything to him either. they can believe what they want. maybe they will, maybe both charles manson and oj will come to me. i don't think i did anything to either one of them. >> geraldo: what about bigfoot? >> take foot maybe two. i may be the abominable snowman. >> geraldo: simpsons highly anticipated hearing was held in two locations connected by close circuit. the commissioners and their modest offices in carson city, nevada's capital, the inmate about 100 miles away. simpsons adult daughter, arnel, his sisters and friends were there.
5:04 pm
so is 63-year-old bruce, one of the two victims of oj's heist. chris came to testify that simpson had spent enough time behind bars. >> nine and a half - 33 years is way too long. i feel like it is time to give him a second chance. it is time for him to go home to his family, his friends. he is a good man. he made a mistake. if you call me tomorrow said bruce, i'm getting out, will you pick me up? juice, i would be there tomorrow. i mean that. >> geraldo: he's slimmer than he was last time around, and older, but not the sold. >> we have that you are
5:05 pm
currently will very recently turned 90 years old. ninety, and sorry about that. >> i feel like that. [laughter] >> you a great for 90. >> geraldo: the daughter gave powerful testimony. >> as a family we recognize he's not the perfect man but clearly he has done his best to behave in a way that speaks through his overall nature and character, which is always to be positive no matter what. he has spent the last nine years at lovelock and has been a perfect inmate, following all of the rules and making the best out of the situation. it is truly amazing to me under the circumstances. the choice that he made nine years ago, that resulted -- it was inappropriate, wrong, and counter productive to what he tried to achieve.
5:06 pm
>> when simpson addressed the commissioners he knew he needed all four to vote in his favor. so the old pitch man made his pitch. >> i've done my time. i have done it as well and is respectfully as anybody can. as the word and they will tell you i gave them my word, i believe in the jury system, i have honored their verdict, i have not complained for nine years. all have done is try to be helpful and encourage the guys around me. hey man, do your time, fighting court, and don't do anything that will extend your time. that is the life i try to live because i want to get back to my kids and family. >> geraldo: at one point oj told them that if her old he planned on living in florida, not nevada. >> i can say nevada but i don't think you guys want me here. >> geraldo: almost nothing made it to the parole board about how he fared as a inmate. the simpson attorney --
5:07 pm
>> by all accounts he has been a model prisoner. in nevada, parole is based on how will you do in prison, staying out of trouble. >> geraldo: on the whole point about what goes around comes around, karma, to see how the nine years that he spent behind bars were to most americans an appropriate sentence given the fact that he was such a jerk probably a double murder? >> in terms of karma, i think there are not a lot of things about the case that i agree with you on that goes wrong comes around. >> geraldo: how did he manage to remain a model prisoner? this combustible character that we agree is so volatile that he could explode at any moment. how did he manage to keep it together? >> he is friendly and outgoing. he's jovial. in his personal life and relationships he doesn't look to be confrontational on the social
5:08 pm
side. i also think his celebrity status helped him with the guards. their instance he would get to the front of the line and be more protected by the guards and his roommates would protect him. i also think the state of nevada had a vested interest in making sure he did not get into any fights and was protected. that is all they would need is for oj to sustain some type of serious injury while in prison and then the nevada prison system would be under a microscope. i think he had a lot going for him. and primarily in his nature and celebrity status helped him. >> geraldo: final question, the attorney for oj here in the las vegas, nevada armed robbery case, o.j. simpson did nine
5:09 pm
years behind bars. he's a free man. has justice been served? >> yes, i think justice has been served. i think nine years was more than a sufficient sentence here. i'm hoping oj has learned his lesson, stays out of the spotlight. >> geraldo: at crunch time the fort commissioners present agree. >> my vote is to grant your parole. >> i agree. >> mr. simpson, i do vote to grant parole when eligible. that will conclude this hearing. >> tha you's. >> geraldo: when we come back, relive it simpson's notorious crime when we asked, was just to serve? experience unparalleled luxury at the lexus golden opportunity sales event before it ends. choose from the is turbo, es 350 or nx turbo for $299 a month for 36 months if you lease now. experience amazing at your lexus dealer.

5:16 pm
is under the radar and spends time with his close friends and family. play some golf but really tries to stay out of the media spotlight. >> geraldo: whether not you agree with the board's decision to grant parole, many watching the hearing thought the commissioners seemed eager to grant parole to simpson. they were willing to over look obviously false testimony like this. >> i was that i was pretty good with people. i basically -- a free life. i've never been a guy that got into fights in the street with the public. i'm not a guy that has confidence on the street. i don't expect to have it when i leave here. but if you like a much better prepared. more so for my commitment for being a better christian. i've had problems with fidelity

5:23 pm
with his ex-wife, he was best known it is time for his football career. an engaging personality. >> she had two beautiful children from him. there are definitely good times. >> the good times between oj and nicole begin when he was 18. she married him a few years later and they have two adorable children, sydney and justice. after storm in violent marriage they divorced in 1992. >> 911 emergency. >> can you get someone over here now, he's back. >> what is he look like? >> he is o.j. simpson. please do send someone over here. >> what kind of cars in? >> a white bronco. he broke the back door down to get in. >> what is your name. >> nicole simpson. >> is he the sportscaster whatever? >> what is he doing? is he threatening you. >> he's going not. >> it has he threatened you?

5:26 pm

click or call. >> ron was at the wrong place at the wrong time. nicole was at the wrong place for a long time.
5:35 pm
we think that evidence will show that he did not, cannot, would not commit these crimes. >> we have linked the defendant to the crime scene. we have linked the defendant to the victim. >> as the world watches one of the biggest case unfolds. under the cameras unflinching arm, the high-profile flamboyant defense is elevated into the dream team. funded by simpson's fortune. they have ample resources, prosecutors have the damning blood evidence. >> but, getting the black female inner-city jury to look past oj's race and celebrity will prove an impossible burden for the prosecution. even the history of spousal abuse will not be enough to convict. >> he overheard the defendant sam went to get her. i'm going to teacher lesson. >> she ran across and collapsed. she had a hand in print on her throat. >> when you lived with nicole
5:36 pm
did you actually witness oj's violence? >> below before she moved at one time of the trial there is a 911 trial. >> the doors were broken into in her home. i did not see the doors been broken into, but i realize they were broken before. so i was witness to him yelling at her being inside the house. >> the defense persuades the jury that simpson's blood collected as they were by suspect white cops could've been sprinkled on the scene. the dream seen challenge helps lead the attack on the state's case. >> the evidence was overwhelming. there was a mountain of evidence, it's rare to see a case when you have blood evidence and other evidence all pointing in the same direction. the problem was the prosecution overplayed their hand. they had one piece of evidence
5:37 pm
that they faked. the officer who had access to the blood, unauthorized access took and poured the blood from the test tube onto the sock to create a piece of evidence. had he not done that, they would've won the case. >> this is a ridiculous argument. everybody's at the crime scene, blood is everywhere. twenty or 30 officers are documenting this. pictures of it never thing else, simpson's blood is tripping there. we don't know it's his blood yet, but were documenting that evidence. meanwhile where is simpson? he's in chicago. so, how does they get is but if he's in chicago and wring it back if it's already there. it's a ridiculous argument even consider.
5:38 pm
>> the prosecutor's ill-advised intent in open court to have the defendant try and the glove found at the scene. that becomes a major catastrophe for the state's case. >> i was there, was 5 feet away. oj walked up to the jurors and said it's too small. at that point they has to put him on as a witness. they blew it. they save time. oj's agent has since admitted that he told oj to stop taking his arthritis medicine so his hands wouldn't swallow. oj listened. >> if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> with the rodney king riots just two years before still fresh in the minds of many, the dream team plays the powerful race card. >> how do you feel about testifying today? holding losing hand their line about something that had nothing
5:39 pm
to do with the case. >> you say on your oath if you had not address any black person as a blank in the past ten yea years? >> this on saying. >> he hasn't used racial slurs for ten years will come back to haunt him. >> judge ito allows the defense to present what seems to be known as -- the conversations he had that were recorded ten years earlier by a researcher of a fictional screenplay. >> geraldo: the detective shamefully refuses to answer questions about having use the n word. >> i know enough about the laws to know when someone is supposed to say something. i looked at clark, my signal i needed an objection he did not. it doesn't absolve me of responsibility, the department could have dealt with me anywhere they wanted which is
5:40 pm
really what should've been done. instead, the made a circus out of the courtroom. >> and they made me the person that had to deliver the entertainment. >> for men makes mistakes, perhaps he didn't handle them correctly but this focus should not have been a mark furman. that's total nonsense. what cochran was an expert at infurig minority jurists and that's what hpened. he was gonna use the race card. >> everybody who had connections oj was asked their opinion of his guilt or innocence. even his friend, donald trump who invited oj to his lavish wedding. >> in light of what you know about his admitted acts of domestic violence, would you care to rephrase your feelings about oj being a nice guy?
5:41 pm
>> i can only say oj is unknown. nothing is guilty, and a center anything. what i see is appalling and what i see doesn't mean, for my viewpoint if i were a juror i would have a hard time with this one. i can only tell you that from a personal standpoint from someone who knows oj well, i found it really incredibly hard to believe he could do a violent act like this. he's a very different guys. >> we the jury find the defendant not guilty of the crime of murder. >> to think he was innocent back? >> i think he was guilty and got away with the crime. i think it's a person of access control but who would think that would lead to the possibly killing the mother of his kids. >> at the time of the murders
5:42 pm
simpson was best known as the heisman trophy winning hall of fame football player. it was a minor movie star and a popular pitch man for a rental company. by the time his dream team of defense attorneys were done making them over, the celebrity who dated only white women and never associated with the civil rights movement was transformed into a symbol of the struggle of black men everywhere to find justice in a white man's world. >> the criminalization and dehumanization of black people. >> one of the most vocal activist was militia, an attorney and at the time, leader of the new black panthers. >> you cannot tell me that race was not the reason this jury almost found against the lapd. >> that's what was on trial, that's why mark furman could be so easily exploited.
5:43 pm
during think that johnny cochran, your hero perceive the racial divide in this country and ran a railroad train? >> i don't think he used race, i think you skill and it was a plato fall. plaques jurors rarely come to their verdicts for racial reasons. so no it was not a black power jury. it was a payback jury. i think it was a credible jury. i don't think oj was free for racial reasons. i do not believe oj simpson murdered ron goldman and nicole simpson on the day. >> at the time, the majority of african-americans agreed, as of 1130, guilty, 58% of why people think he's guilty. only 15% of black people innocent, 20% of white people say he's innocent, 62% of black people say he's innocent. the disparity on the basis of
5:44 pm
race is profound and disturbing. >> more than 20 years later, different story. the majority of acks, 57% suspect simpson's guilt. >> even african-americans that i come in contact with there's just such a bad taste in their mouth. it's like flaunting and shoving your face in it. >> the change happened in stages. the first, form of civil trial but by the victims family. february 5, 1997 a jury does something that downtown l.a. criminal jury did not, it unanimously ruled simpson responsible for the deaths of that his ex-wife and her friend. >> o.j. simpson has been found liable of question number one. defined by preponderance of
5:45 pm
evidence that he willfully and wrongfully cause the death of ron goldman? this jury has rendered the verdict, yes. >> i'm hearing cheers. he is liable. >> i'm sorry, question two is yes. >> geraldo: so he has caused the death, committed battery, it should be yeses from here on down. >> which is on this trial was truth and lies from the other side. >> the jury benefited from evidence not heard in the criminal trial come alike the fact that he failed a lie detector test. they had pictures of the former buffalo bills star running back in 1993 wearing a size 12 shoes that a year later would leave the bloodied shoe print on the walkway.
5:46 pm
despite this multimilln llar wrongful death judgment against him, for the next ten yes, simpson is free to play golf, date troubled women, itself up all memorabilia to support a comfortable lifestyle. now that he'll soon be a free man again, will ask what is next for the former football hero which started what became our first reality tv show. that is up next dearthere's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia
5:47 pm
ethat's the height ofs mount everest. because each day she chooses to take the stairs. at work, at home... even on the escalator. that can be hard on her lower body, so now she does it with dr. scholl's orthotics. clinically proven to relieve and prevent foot, knee or lower back pain, by reducing the shock and stress that travel up her body with every step she takes. so keep on climbing, sarah. you're killing it. >> him
5:48 pm
5:49 pm
5:50 pm
>> geraldo: an estimated 150 million people stop what they are doing to catch the televised o.j. simpson verdict. it was an ultimate cliffhanger. what have become reality tv before there was reality tv. in this most-watched courtroom drama made stars out of the lawyers and witnesses. >> there was a time in 1994, ladies and gentlemen 175% of the people in the united states could correctly identify cato kayla. us in 25% could identify the vice president of the united states. that kind of notoriety, what you think? >> that kind of notoriety was something that someone want to achieve and i achieved it and the wrong way.
5:51 pm
>> is there an irony that comes from this? >> everything i'm doing now to prevent the footnote of may be in trial witness in the o.j. simpson case. everything i do know is what i want my legacy to be. >> geraldo: he has tried everything from multiple reality tv shows to a clothing line. it appears the oj trial will always be his foot no. even recently winning $12000 at a milwaukee brewers game, the headlines read, cato kayla, a key witness in oj trial, wins raffle at brewers game. >> oj's kids were just eight and five and their mother was killed. while they were sleeping inside the home. since then, both have tried to stay out of the spotlight. today, sydney and justin both live in florida and both work in real estate.
5:52 pm
