    No, but I did read Outrage (by the lawyer who prosecuted Charles Manson), which is mainly about the mistakes the prosecution made. It's a good companion piece since this book/series are so sympathetic and bother to contextual ooze it with all the external forces they were contending with.

    Yeah this is the perfect example of hindsight being 20/20. At the time they had no idea the media coverage would exist and the impact it would have. They had no idea how to handle it, not to mention the DA doesn't have the money to throw at the issue. I think the DA thought it would be like any other case and they were wrong.

    Still probably try to find that book to read about it.

    What I found interesting about the show is all of the crazy things that happened on the show that were actually true. Like Johnny Cochran saying "n**** please" to chris darden. Just amazing.

    I just noticed that my phone autocorrected contextualize to contextual ooze.
