O.J. Simpson on the headlines again

Once again, O.J. Simpson was found guilty, this time for kidnapping and armed robbery during his confrontation with sports memorabilia dealer in Las Vegas.
It's hard to separate this trial from his history of trials:
  • 13 years ago, on October 3, 1995, O. J. Simpson was found "not guilty" on the murder of his separated wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
  • On February 5, 1997, a civil jury found O. J. Simpson "liable" for the wrongful death of and battery against Goldman and Brown. O. J. Simpson was ordered to pay $33,500,000.00 in damages.
  • On Friday, October 3, 2008, O. J. Simpson was found "guilty" by a Las Vegas (Clark County) jury for kidnapping and armed robbery.
There are also a bunch of other litigation against Simpson.

What's your reaction to the latest verdict?
  1. A (belated) justice served?
  2. He was setup by those against him?
BTW, is this a fair trial?

It looks like the race issue is still lingering on peoples minds whenever we talk about O.J.
