Speaking Point: The prosecution is so eager to get a conviction against O.J. Simpson that they are already cutting deals with co-defendants to testify against Simpson. Jurors dislike and distrust snitches, and there are even jury instructions which explicitly warn jurors to view accomplice testimony with suspicion. Tellingly, one of the victims in the case himself has publicly stated that he believes that Simpson was set up. So if the prosecution's case is to rely so heavily on the testimony of rats, any jury will be very skeptical of the witnesses's motivations.
Speaking Point: All witnesses are clear that Simpson himself was unarmed. So the legal question becomes, "Did Simpson aid and abet any crimes?" In other words, can it be proven knew that some of the accomplices were armed, and did Simpson have the necessary mental state to commit the crimes charged? The lack of evidence of this is exactly why the prosecution is giving deals to the accomplices. The prosecution wants the accomplices to point the finger at Simpson.

Speaking Point: For all the scorn and hatred heaped on Simpson, most jurors take their job seriously, and they are bright enough to see the truth. And the truth is that the prosecution wants a prized scalp, they're going overboard to get it, and the snitches are more than willing to say whatever it takes to save their hides.
