Why are OJ’s Incompetent Prosecutors Attacking Johnnie Cochran Beyond the Grave?
Nearly two decades after the murder trial of OJ Simpson, one of the prosecutors still appears to have sour grapes. Christopher Darden, who worked with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, is now going after the late Johnny Cochran, claiming that OJ was acquitted because Cochran engaged in an unethical modification of evidence.
Darden was referring to the infamous scene during which Simpson tried on the gloves that the prosecution claimed to have belonged to the killer. Upon trying on the gloves, Simpson’s hands were clearly too big, creating a huge gap in the prosecution’s case. This led to Cochran’s famous line, “If the gloves don’t fit, you must acquit.”
Darden was speaking on a panel at Pace University Law School when he said that the defense had cut the glove’s inner lining so that it wouldn’t fit. But he says that he doesn’t have any proof, which makes him a sitting duck for anyone wishing to accuse him of faulty legal practice.
Alan Dershowitz, who was part of the defense, was also on the panel. Dershowitz simply asked why Darden waited nearly 20 years to talk about something that should have been brought up during the trial. Darden, oddly enough, stated that bringing the issue up would have been the “whiny-little-snitch approach to life.”
We don’t know if he sounds like a whiny little snitch nearly 20 years later, but he certainly sounds like an inadequate attorney.
