The OJ Simpson trial: 30 years later

TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez joins Dave Zirin on 'Edge of Sports TV' for a retrospective on the OJ trial and its consequences.

Although initially catapulted to fame by his career in the NFL and Hollywood, OJ's early success was ultimately eclipsed by his alleged murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her lover, Ron Goldman. The double-homicide, subsequent trial, and acquittal rocked the nation—sparking a media frenzy and a culture war that revolved around questions of racism, police corruption, domestic violence, and celebrity impunity.
