After 8 hours of deliberation and working through lunch the OJ Simpson jury has told the judge they want to continue. According to Clark County Courts Administration Spokesman Michael Sommermeyer jurors can continue working into the night if they wish. "We're bringing in dinner" Sommemeyer told a group of reporters outside the courtroom.

The jury in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery and kidnapping trial is back deliberating, after asking a question of Judge Jackie Glass.

"The jury did want to ask the judge a question. a procedural question," said court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer.

"The judge told the jurors to refer back to their jury instructions."

    Ziggy, how come your comment that has nothing to do with this thread can get in here, and mine cant? Has everyone got O.J and Sarah Palin mentality around here? Now there's a good team!

    I would say that these trumped up charges were anything but justice.
    This whole event was staged and put together like a mouse to cheese in a mouse trap. I would say racism,hatred, and prejudice were the actual predetermining factors in this case. I thought O.J. was found not guilty for the murder of his white wife, nicole simpson? Why then is he being hounded and sought out? Let's be honest nothing is more enraging than the thought of a black man getting away with murdering a poor, sweet,
    innocent white woman in America. So even though he was found innocent, he was still guilty to a racist, hate filled, prejudiced white american media and society. And black, asian, latino, jurors? Only whites and 9 women at that? When O.J. has been known for spousal abuse against his wife. This cas was easy and done with before it even started. But O.J. should have notified the authorities or just simply let it go. I bet they would have tried again, at framing him
    if this attemp didn't work. This whole scene stinks and just goes to show race, hatred and prejudice white america still has and will always have for black men. The history is all there.

    Good that society no longer has to deal with his arrogance, and his "no rules" behaviour.

    Justice is finally closing in on this horrible man that killed Nicole and Ron Goldman brutally and he thought he got away with murder, however this jury is not swayed and saw right through him. Thank you jury.

    This is a disgrace that a Judge can comment on how she uses the power the people have trusted her to use justly and she uses it unjustly, To say no to high power attorneys. Is she on a power trip,
    Influencing the youth in such a manner and its called a joke.

    The jury has submitted their decision and OJ has been found guilty on all counts. Would you say this was a decision made on the past.
    It looks just like a modern day lynching.

    Now maybe court tv and the prosecutors will let him rest. OJ just experienced double jepoardy. He was tried once again for the aquittal in 1995, no our justice system does not work. I watched the trial, the judge was bias, it was very clear, and he should appeal for a new trial on that alone.

    O.J. has been unjustly found guilty. How is it possible to find someone guilty of a burglary crime versus a double murder? Too obvious, even the Judge was biased. I guess this year is full of "anybody" trying to make history, Obama, Palin and now Prosecutors in O.J.'s Las Vegas trial. Unbelievable how the court system can arrest and find an African American guilty, yet are somehow unable to place Casey Anthony in jail to face charges of homicide??

    I believe that this whole incident was a set up. I do believe that Mr. Simpson wanted his property but the violence was caused by the other defendents. I have my opinions about the murder trial but I feel that this was staged to get him behind bars. They are talking about him spending the rest of his life in jail. We all know that murderers have gotten off with less time. He was found not guilty 13 years ago and people are still after him. It's mighty funny that all of the robbers turned on him immediately. This is a joke. I bet the judge is giving the jury high fives now.

    Allright! It's about time he got whats coming to him!
    He's always thumbed his nose at the Justice System. Isn't it poetic Justic....13 years after his aquittal to the day! Nicole and Ron got their Justice today!

    Just after two in the morning EST, and he was found guilty on all 12 counts.

    I'll bet his lawyers agreed to an all-white jury just so they'd have grounds for an appeal. Slick.
