Charles, I watched your show last night (10/8/96) and I
respect you and believe you are a compassionate person. How-
ever I would like to pour some common sense into your brain
sometimes to bring you up to speed in reality.
First I was
shocked at your opening endorsement for Bill Clinton. You
announced that you didn't want to influence peoples vote, but
Dole likes the welfare bill and only Clinton wants to fix it.
Charles, I heard you complain about someme of Senator Dole's
comments during the debate, however, it is outrageous for
you to make this statement. Please stick to voicing your opinions,
and let's stop telling people how to vote because that is what you
On the welfare bill. I think you should give some thought to
the process that currently distributes the $$ in the name of
compassion. For every tax
$ collected for welfare, how much gets back to the poor? Maybe
$.40 on a dollar? What % goes out from United Way for example,
$.85? Who is doing a better job? Where is the most bureaucracy?
If the federal govt. were a business they would be a failure.
People are tired of their $$ going to a bottomless pit of waste.
An opportunity to shift this program back closer to the people
as presented by the Republicans should be applauded. Hopefully
in the future we will be able to get tax dollars shifted to
gift $$ so we can get all govt. agencies out of this business of
assisting the poor. We as Americans will not allow the truly
needy to starve or go without shelter. You must always remember,
when you offer something for nothing the line gets awfully long,
and more than the truly needy show up!

Interesting that Bobby K. has now come out and said he thinks OJ did it.
The former football player's year out of jail has proven nothing to me.
See how far we've come. "In my day" Bobby Kennedy was Bobby K .... whoops ... that's me. Now Bobby K. is Bobby Kardashian.

With all the blood evidence at Bundy, Rockingham, in the Bronco and
on the victims, there is no doubt in my mind that O.J. did it. He
got off because of the black jury and a group of slick attorneys. Also,
an innocent person would not want to kill themselves or run away.

I would agree that all of the media hype over OJ is getting old.
Further, Charles Grodin is a deadpan comic actor not a great orator. I
don't doubt his sincerety but the phrase "beating a dead horse" comes
to mind. If Mr. Grodin must continue his crusade against OJ, for god's
sake, stop the rambling monolouge and let the guests speak.
Everyone in North America has been bombarded with the facts of the case
for over a year and and we all have our minds made up. The fallout of
the OJ trial is far more important than the trial it's self;
- Exposure of a legal system that favors the rich.
- Lawyers who will smear the inocent and defame the dead to obtain an

- Blacks who believe all whites care about is that OJ married a white

The OJ trial has driven a wedge of mistrust between the races that will

Subject: Grodin and Rivera
Thank God, I have finally found a place where there are OTHER intelligent human beings who think Grodin and Rivera are INDEED VERY BIASED about O. J. 's guilt and constantly report on things in a biased way. I am putting this page on my list of favorites.
I watched every minute of the criminal trial and saw alternative explanations and reasonable doubt in every piece of evidence put forth by the prosecution. I am not now, nor have never been an O. J. fan, or a fan of football.
It is now 1 am. and Charles is on with Victoria Toensing AGAIN. I am so sick of her I could literally puke. How can she now call herself a defense attorney. I'd rather be defended by Charles Manson. I'd probably get a better defense. She comments without .... whoops ... the rest got erased .

Neither the guilt/innocence of Simpson, nor the death of two people are relevant here. Thsoe things were thrashed out in court, the verdict was innocent, and case closed. But now we are faced wityh a couple of egomaniacs trying to reverse the decision.
But a second set of vindictives are on the scene as well: Goldman & Co., who cry at the drop of a hat and want crucifiction, and the Brown parents looking for child custody. If either of these groups really believed he did it, why don't they get a gun and ...
I don't know what's missing here ... case by a couple of wannabes like Charles Grodin and Jose Rivera trying to hype their ratings by becoming full-time and on-going Simpson prosecutors. An aids-like pox on both their houses. They are right up there with the parasite on-scene "journalists."
From: "Daniel J. Green"
You would have to be lying, in denial, or just plain stupid to say O.J.
Simpson was not guilty of the murders!
When in doubt, block out everything and look at what cannot be disputed.
Just look at the evidence! O.J.'s blood is at the crime scene!
What else does it take?
It couldn't have been planted there that night. They didn't get O.J.'s
blood sample yet!
There is a history of abuse! Blood evidence! Shoe prints! (Italian made
shoes that O.J. said he would never wear but yet a photo is found of him
How many photos ???
O.J. Simpson is a pathological liar who probably at this point believes
he didn't commit the murders.
The unfortunate part is that further walls are being built between
blacks and whites because the RACE CARD was played by the defense team.
Why play race games?
Don't people see how using race hurts the plight of people who are, in
fact, really victims of racism!
Compare this to a woman who would claim she was raped when she wasn't.
This hurts all victims!
Believe me! I was an O.J. Simpson fan before all this.

FRAMED! By the LAPD as Benny Powell and Clarance Chance were framed.
These two American Citizens of African descent spent 17 years on death
row for a crime they did not commit simply because LAPD officers, Det. HULL &
Knott planted false evidence, intimidated wittnesses, lied uner oath
on the witness stand , hid exculpitory evidence and knew all along
that these two men were not quilty of this crime.
Some LA Policemen are highly skilled in the art of framing innocent
people and convincing jurors of thier guilt.
Thanks to attys. Danny Tartalow, Lawrence Willson and Sandra Smith for
helping to clear the names of these innocent men and in winning thier
law suit against the city of LA in 1993 for 3.5 Million dollars.

How many times will O.J. change his story now he says he never hit or abused his wife at any time.
In fact he states he was the one who was abused. This man has used the racial unrest of these
himself once and got away with murder. I hope we will not allow this to happen again ! Black or White
this is a guilty man. Let there be not mistake of that.
Subject: Re: Go Charles Grodin!!!
I just stumbled upon your web site and read your piece about Grodin's
condemnation of Simpson. I very much disagree with your ascertion that
it is not the media's place to publically dispute the findings of the
court system. It is OBVIOUS beyond any doubt that Simpson brutely
murdered those two people. It is also glaringly obvious that he was
exhonerated because of the color of his skin.
How often did the
opposite occur in the South earlier this century? How often was a Black
man convicted of a crime that he obviously did not commit because of the
bias of a jury, and a racist society?
Ever read "To Kill a
Mockingbird?" This occurs far less today because it was made public by
journalists and outraged the majority of society who I believe are good
non-racist people. For responsible journalists to not take issue with
Simpson, and this incredible miscarriage of the American Justice system
would be the same as ignoring the plight of those who were persecuted
because of their race.
Thanks Marc ...
For your response to SoCoOL and Who The Hell is Charles

conduct our trials? O.J. Simpson has been featured every night on

First let me start off by saying, after reading your remarks to "Kate
Anderson" RE: her annoyomous EMAIL, does it matter? your getting a
response... So don't bother remarking on my email address... may send
First I though O.J. was innocent, I really believed with my gut, that
he could not, and would not commit such a hainous crime. Well in the
months that have followed, my beliefs have changed. There are too many
facts pointing right in the direction of O.J. EG: The blood evidence,
this alone should have put him in jail, but the defense worked so hard
on confusing the jurors about the blood and probability of contaminatio
it actually sounded believable.
But, after probing it more deeply and coming to the realization that blood evidence does not lie, that alone
should have convicted him. DNA is DNA, no matter how you want to look at
it. They can extract DNA from bodies that are ancient and still come
up with a match. So, what is the problem with O.J.'s DNA, his is
different, it accounts for nothing?
I really believe that O.J. does
believe he IS innocent. From a pshchological standpoint, I think O.J.
did commit the murders, possibly did not plan to, went there just to
scare Nicole, but reacted when he saw another man there. Then he developed
selective amnesia? A mental block?, after the murders were committed.
I think his whole body went into some type of shock and he truly thought
he was innocent. I cant understand why he was never subjected to any
thorough pshchological tests? I also think it is possible now, that he
is remembering and that is why he has the dreams.
The fact that OJ never
sought out the real killer is another reason I feel he IS guilty. Anyone
with his money/power would be doing everthing in their power to find
the real killer/killers if he truly was innocent, and for the sake of
their children. OJ is in denial, the data/facts are overwhelming and
it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that he did commit
these crimes. This man is in need of psychological help, and its too
bad we have the double jeporday standard... because if he is found guilty
of this crime in civil court, payment will never bring back Nicole and
Ron, although jail time wont either, but at least he would be paying
from his heart then, and the out of his wallet. I guess the ultimate
judge will be god someday?
So to sum it up, the glove, the cap with his
hair, fibers, blood of all 3 in Bronco, blood on his walkway, his home,
three different explanations about the night the limo driver came???
disguise, money, passport in Cowlings Bronco??? And so far his answer
to all this in civil court is I dont know, never, I wouldnt? Ha, this
man needs help, and the money being wasted when everyone knows he did
it, and is sick is truly sickening!! Lisa Gall
Hurrah for Charles Grodin.
I don't know where you are coming from, [your web page is confusing], but that fucking O.J. is guilty as hell.
I want Charles to take on Charles Keating too.
Subject: Chuck's Big Mistake
Grodin & Geraldo disgust me. They both seem obsessed w/ OJ. Whether OJ
committed these murders or not, the "Justice System " has has found him "not
guilty". Is there a reason behind this continous attack. Geraldo has become
personally involved because he of his relationship w/ Denise. Professor
Alan pissed Chuck off.. He made the comment" read the book". Chuck knew
NOTHING about the case at that time. Since he has read all the "anti" OJ

I hope Charles Grodin gets to read this. Please send a copy to his
I believe O.J. is not guilty. My feelings are based on reasonable doubt.
Several items were not clearified, by the prosecution, to my satisfaction.
Most of which have to due with the conduction of the police investigation.
If you want to convince me that O.J. is guilty then prove it.
- 1. What happened to the missing 2 ml of blood? The nurse responible
for drawing blood from O.J. initialy stated that 8 ml of blood was
taken. The defense's investigation showed that only about 6 ml of
this blood had been accounted for. The nurse's response to this
was that he (the nurse) was mistaken and that only 6 ml was drawn
from O.J. - I don't by that.
- 2. No one could give any good reason why a detective working on this
case would take O.J.'s blood (The 8 ml that was drawn from O.J.
at the same location were the blood is to be stored by the police)
to offsite locations under investigation. - Smells fishy. 8 ml
drawn, 6 ml accounted for, opportunity to plant evidence.
- 3. Why would an investigating detective hold evidence (O.J.'s shoes)
in his personal possession for more than 24 hours. - Again, smells
- 4. The gloves did not fit. The latex gloves worn by O.J. when trying
on the "bloody gloves" would not have made much difference, if
any. The latex gloves a very thin and fit very tightly against the
- 5. Climbing the wall at O.J.'s home. If you actually believe that
Furman and the others did not consider O.J. a suspect at this
time, knowing of the abusive relationship between O.J. and Nicole,
then you are a bigger fool than I thought you to be. In any case,
these officers lied because they felt that O.J. was guilty. They
wanted to search his place as soon as possible to see what they
could find. - These officers showed themselves to be liars. They
showed that they are willing to break the rules when they feel it
is necessary. This can never be tolerated. In the past and at the
present many officers have shown themselves to be bias in one
shape or another, whether it be racial or not. For this reason
there should zero tolerance for officers that break the rules.
Race does play an issue in this case because of the conduct of the officers.
Several of there actions were not standard operating procedures. Some of
which were violations of O.J.'s rights (entering and searching his home without
a warrant). White America has a problem with accepting the fact that many
police officers have negative pre-conceived ideas about Black people. The
bigger problem is that these officers allow these "ideas" to influence how they
treat Black people. These officers type-cast or as they say "profile" certain
people as potential criminals. Some suspicious Blacks are: those present in
affluent neighborhoods at dark (and during the day), those driving nice
cars, those listening to rap, those who dress in hip-hop styles, etc.
the list can go on.
One thing that really bugs the hell out of me is the Rodney King case.
Here there is actual video footage of officers brutally beating a man.
These officers are freed and the only response given by White America
is that the "Justice System" found the officers to be not guilty and we
must respect that decision. Why can't the same be said about the O.J.
Charles Grodin, if you a man seeking justice for what you call to
be a tragic injustice then where were you when the court system made
a mockery of the justice system with the Rodney King verdict? Was your
silence an indication of your support for this verdict? Are you one of the
many racist people in this country that felt that those officers
could have had justification for the brutal beating they have subjected
Rodney King to? Or are you one of those millions of people who have been
(and still are) willing to look the other way when Blacks are mistreated
in this country. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE in the O.J. case and the Rodney
King case? WHY, WHY, WHY was there no uproar by White America when the
Rodney King verdict came in.

How can people be so blinded that they do not see Simpson for the murderer he is? "Yes" some of the evidence was handled sloppily, "yes" mark Furhman is a racist, and "yes" on many other things, but none of these alter the fact that Simpson did kill these two people.
He admitted (on his return from Chicago) that he did cut himself before leaving for Chicago. When asked "How?" he responds, "I don't know. You guys never tell me anything. I don't know, man." Bizarre is about the only description for this response. How he cut himself? Just plain weird. Sounds like a panicky (read guilty) response.
Oh, and what about the 30 some odd pictures of Simpson wearing the exact same type of shoes that left the bloody prints at the murder scene? OJ & co. tried to explain
the same clothes, shoes, etc. at the same place on the same day, the defense has absolutely nothing defensible to say. They can't find any "expert" witness in the world who is willing to prostitute themselves in the face of this kind of evidence.
Anyway, the evidence just goes on and on and on ...
